Bon Voyage!!

Today's the day, my friends! We are off to Italy this afternoon to board our ship and FINALLY start this fabulous Mediterranean cruise I've been swooning over the last few months! D and I spent the ENTIRE DAY yesterday packing for this thing. We severely underestimated how hard packing for a 12 day cruise would actually be! We each need roughly 2 outfits a day (one to tour around in during the day and one to wear for nighttime on the ship) and 2 formal outfits for the 2 formal nights on board. Factor in my already bad habit of over packing and you've got a recipe for a packing nightmare. The amount of shoes I had to weed through was ungodly, y'all. BUT, I'm happy to say we conquered packing Tetris and are ready to set sail!

It's no surprise that while we're gone, we'll have very limited internet access. The ship has WiFi, but at $25 for 30 minutes, I think we will just wait until we're at the ports to find ourselves a few hot spots. Fingers crossed these hots spots won't be too hard to find. That being said, since I'll be away from blog land for a while, I've enlisted the help of 6 fabulous bloggers (thanks for your help, ladies!!) to guest post for you guys a few days while I'm away! Each of their blogs are currently featured in my sidebar, so make sure you head on over to visit them and watch out for their guest post's over the next two weeks. They're sharing lots good stuff you won't wanna miss! But don't worry, I've got a few scheduled posts of my own thrown in for good measure. I couldn't leave the blog hanging for THAT long. ;)

Ok, so I think that's all the blog housekeeping for now! Guys, if there was ever a time to follow me on Instagram (username @CaseyCote), this would be it. I'm going to be blowing up your IG feeds with as many travel photos as the site will allow me (internet access permitting)...so make sure you're following along! Think of it as your own virtual European vacation, if you will. ;) Now, I'm off to get traveling! Auf Wiedersehen, friends! Pray I don't get sea sick!!


  1. Enjoy the cruise trip, Casey! It sounds like a dream vacation to me as well. I had never thought that you would need sooooo many clothes to jump aboard a cruise but it makes sense, too much cool sightseeing and lovely dinners :)

    Have fun!

  3. Happy travels! Can't wait to hear of your trip when you get back!
