Disembarkation for Grand Vacation 2014

I have been dying to share some highlights with you from my Grand Vacation with Stampin’ Up!  Wouldn’t you believe it, I forgot my camera?!  But luckily my phone takes pretty good pics, I just have to be sure that the settings are on AIRPLANE mode so I am not using my data plan… which when you are traveling into international areas is FREAKING EXPENSIVE!!  So here are a few shots of Sunday when we arrived in Florida and left on the HUGE SHIP, the Allure of the Seas… which holds 5K+ HOLY CRAP THAT’S A LOT!!

Then it was time for another “selfie” from our stateroom balcony…  Check out the Naval Ship in the back, that’s the USS New York, which if you are not aware was made from steel pieces salvaged from the TWIN TOWERS from 9/11… it was cool to see!
