*All My News*

OK, I've talked to my Mom so I can spill the beans on my blog now! I have two pieces of big news....

#1.... this morning my husband and I decided that I will be able to go on a Southern Caribbean cruise with my sister in March! I am so excited to not only go on a Cruise, but to be going on a week-long getaway with just my sister. It's going to be absolutely amazing!! You can see where we're heading by clicking HERE. I am so excited!!

#2.... yesterday, my good friend Denise and I went on a little adventure. I have been talking about getting a tattoo for quite a while so we went down to a local tattoo shop to have a look around and ask some questions. Denise has known the owner of this shop since she was a kid (she is good friends with his younger sister) so I wasn't at all nervous about going in (never been in a tattoo shop before!). Well, we looked around, one of the artists drew up a sketch that I liked and I hopped into the chair and got inked!

This tattoo is my first tattoo... on the inside of my right ankle. It didn't "hurt" for the most part. A few parts were more painful than others. Mostly it just felt like being stung repeatedly by a wasp. The "babe" part of the tattoo isn't there because I think I'm a total hottie... My Dad called my sisters, nieces and I all "Babe" so I did it to honour him a little.

Denise also got inked while she was there. She wasn't planning on a tattoo at all... she got a great flower on the outside of her right ankle.

So, that's all my big news for today! Enjoy your Saturday night!

Alright! Lucky you! I've never been on a cruise but we are thinking about one next year. I get terrible motion sickness though...
Love the tattoo! I've always wanted a butterfly on my ankle, but am scared to actually do it!

Sounds like the cruise will be fun! Watch out...now that you have a tattoo you'll want another. I have one and have, since the day I got it, wanted another!

Michelle said...

What a great time you are going to have. I have never been on a cruise before - sweet! You are one lucky gal!

Love the new tatt!

If you don't mind me asking where did you get it? I have 6 tattoo's & the last one I got I'm not totally happy with it & I would like to get it fixed & added to but, I'm not sure where to go now.

Excellent news all the way around. The Caribbean cruise? Awesome! The tattoo? Looks fantastic! You know what they say though right? Once you get one tattoo, you just can't stop. I will be getting my second one very soon :o)
