We arrived in Tampa yesterday because our cruise takes off today!!! I’m so excited, but have some time to myself this morning, so I thought I’d throw up a blog post for ya 😀

We got in to Tampa pretty early – about 10 in the morning. Obviously, Kim and I immediately found the first giraffe statue, and gave me a kiss.


We heart giraffe.

Then we found out Kim’s boo got our suite upgraded to a corner suite, so I pranced around our baller room for a while:

View from our balcony:


Oh, hiiii cruise ship 😉

And even though Tampa was only about 65 degrees yesterday, I knew I wanted to get our there and breathe some sea air. I decided to go for about a four mile run along the water before hitting up the gym for some weights:

Feeling refreshed, I showered, and then everyone hung out in the room before hitting up the town:

We decided on dining at a sushi place, Oishi:IMG_2494


It had very fun decorations on the wall!IMG_2495

I ended up having a yummy martini plus a tuna roll and salmon roll. Twas too dark for pictures, though.

And afterward, we hit up a bar, where I had 2 and a half of these bad boys:



Although we were SUPER pumped about being on vacation, we called it an early night and were back at the hotel by 11:00. We have a big day today! Actually, we’re about to go hit up Starbucks, hit up the gym, then hit up the cruuuiiiise ship!

Catch ya on the ocean side!!

Have a fabulous Sunday, all!! 😀

  1. What a fun time, a run along the ocean. But hey, it’s in the 70’s at your place…inside. It’s in the 20’s outside. I’m gonna take Buck and Niko for a long walk, but Dad is opting for a guest pass at your gym.

    That ship looks too big for Tampa Bay!
