I received this comment on the post about my giveaway.
"Not to rain on anyone's parade, but I also won this very trip a few years back and it's in no way 'free', we paid almost $500 taking taxi's around town, food, drinks, extra fees, etc. It was a fun and memorable trip, but it wasn't free."
I don't know if this wasn't very clear in the post or not. I would think that everyone understands that this trip is like most trips that are won. You will have to pay for your own food unless you pay for the additional all inclusive, and you will have to pay for taxis to get around if you are not going somewhere within walking distance. And, you will have to pay for drinks. The hotel room and the cruise over are free. I figured that was just common understood knowledge; however, I just wanted to make sure that everyone realizes that in case you didn't. Like I said before, I won this; so, it's probably not some fancy schmancy trip. That comment hurt my feelings a tad. I guess to me it insinuated I wasn't being honest. But like with anything put on paper, text message, email, blogging, etc., I may have taken the comment out of context. Just thought if someone had the extra cash for airflight, lived near Ft. Lauderdale, and just wanted to get away that they might like this since I can't.
As far as the big question, it hasn't come up again. LC is just looking but not seriously right now. So, I'm not worried about it and will deal with it when the time comes. Thanks so much for all the encouraging comments and words of wisdom about that!!!!
We went to the Phoenix Club's Mardi Gras party downtown this past weekend. It was fun. Crowded but fun. Hey, it goes to a good cause so in the end it's worth it. However, the Cadre building has concrete floors. With people dancing, bumping into each other, and just being clumsy, there was a lot of alcohol on the ground making the floor very slick. A girl I know got hurt kinda bad from a fall. Not good. I wish that event planners would take this into consideration when planning such events.
I bought two new Lilly dresses this past weekend. I got this one
And I got another Gwyneth in pink/white stripes! I can't wait for Spring to get here.
If any of you followed the Noura Jackson case, she got second degree murder. I definitely think she did it or knew who did it. However, the state presented no evidence linking her to the crime other than some silly outline of the evening they concluded to and the testimony of a bunch of druggie kids recalling a weekend from 3 years ago. I just don't see how they got that verdict from such little evidence. That's JMO though.
Hope all of y'all had a great weekend! I did!!! Today is my and LC's 6 month anniversary=)
