Wow, I have lots to catch up on. :) I haven't been a good blogger lately. Between traveling, reunions, photography, new job (yep, I'll blog about it soon!), weddings, etc.. life has been running away from me... and I'm just trying to keep up.

Aaron and I recently celebrated our 2nd anniversary. :)
Technically our anniversary was after our cruise, however we celebrated while on vacation with a cruise excursion, followed by a fancy meal on the ship.

We were planning on checking out the Stingray Sandbar while at Grand Cayman Islands, however when we arrived, we were informed that the excursion was canceled due to the windy weather. So sad.

Instead of trying to pick up another excursion there at the port, Aaron and I decided to wander around the island. We were pointed in the direction of a beach, so we started on our way... luckily for us some cruise guy stop us and told us we were going the wrong way.. haha. At that point, we really had no idea what to do. We debated riding in a taxi around the island, submarine tour (kinda pricey) or a random snorkeling hut. We chose random snorkeling hut. :) This was my first time ever snorkeling and I absolutely loved it. My feet did not, there were a couple of blisters from where the flippers rubbed against my toes. and I absolutely failed when it came to the mask. I could not keep water from leaking for more than 3 minutes at a time.... and I kept forgetting that I was snorkeling and would go too deep under and start choking on salty salty water. lol. Aaron had a good time too. He spent quite a bit of his time following a particular fish around. He's so weird. I ended up scraping up my knee on a rough rock, I'm glad the sharks didn't come for me.

Once we returned to life on the boat, we met up with Mags and Hunter for a friendly game of putt-putt. I'm not going to lie, I was pretty good. I even got my first hole-in-one. (well that was technically on our first day on the boat.. but nonetheless... also just realized that I never blogged about the first day, not sure I ever will) I've never been good at putt-putt... must have been all the wind helping me out. :)

Next up was fancy dinner date night with my wonderful husband. We got dressed up in our best. Me = beautiful teal dress, technically not my best as I borrowed it from an awesome friend, and some smoking heels. Aaron = sharp looking suit. We feasted at the on-board steakhouse. Of course I got the surf and turf (filet migon and lobster, fyi), my favorite and go-to meal whenever I go out for a fancy dinner. Aaron got a huge NY strip... his might have been better than mine... I had to taste it a couple of times to make up my mind. We also got fabulous dessert. Me = chocolate*4. Aaron = humongous cheesecake.

All in all we had a wonderful day celebrating our 2nd anniversary. Eating delicious food, spending time with friends, snorkeling in the Carribean, visiting foreign island, putt putting out at sea, and loving on each other... basically all the things we do best.
