So, my amazing, rock star husband was in a competition at work. For three months he has been working his cute little fanny off to win said competition. When we got transferred at the very end of the competition we thought he wouldn't stand a chance of winning since he had to take a whole week of to move thus loosing a weeks worth of sales floor time. Wellllllll...HE WON!!! He is one of the few chosen from the entire company to take his wife on a CRUISE! The company is paying for everything and I am so proud and excited I can hardly stand it! He is so amazing and he is constantly making waves at work and showing everyone just how amazing he really is!
A cruise...on a boat...with other people from the company and their wives...and sun...water........swimming suits....dinner....formal wear....oh boy! It took a day or two for it to sink in that I really didn't want my first cruise experience to be clouded by my horrible self image. It kind of hit me like a ton of bricks. And then I started praying that they weren't sending us right away, and that I would have some time to slim down. Everyone I have mentioned that to has said, "oh my gosh, you are so silly". But am I? Is it so crazy to want to fully enjoy this amazing gift we have been given without the crazy inner voice ruining all my fun? Is it so crazy to want to feel confident when I meet other wives and company big wigs? I think not, and to my relief, we are not going until February some time. I am so thrilled. I have a new goal, and new motivation! I am doing great so far. I have had a couple of days that were a bit shaky but nothing crazy. Of course I had to make a giant meal and dessert to celebrate such a huge accomplishment for my Husband! Luckily, his favorite dessert is Pumpkin Pie and I can barely stomach the stuff, so that is what I made...no temptation there! I did however down 3 home made rolls! No biggy! 4 months is going to fly and I can't wait!
