That Time I Cruised on the Mardi Gras...

You may have noticed that I don't write in here a lot anymore... Sorry about that.

But, I did make some videos on my cruise! So that's kind of the same right?

Enjoy!

That Time I Tried Bright Cellars...

I did it again. I fell for a box subscription promo.
This time it was Bright Cellars which is a wine subscription and I fell for it because of a YouTuber's promo code for $50 off. (Good news: because I became a customer, I now have a code I can share with YOU too!)...

That Time I Tried Dunkaroos Cereal...

I can't stop buying weird cereals.

Like some of the other cerals I've tried, I found this in my grocery store's clearance section...

That Time You Subscribed to My Blog...

 ...or didn't. But if you were subscribed, the product that was sending you emails won't be working soon (or already, but I just today found a new solution), so you'll want to subscribe again to keep getting emails of my posts! 

Follow again by putting your email in the box on the left (if you're on a computer), or by clicking this link.

That Time I Went on a Staycation...

I'm not actually sure if it counts as a staycation as we went to a different city, but the majority of our plans included being at our hotel, which feels like a staycation to me.

The main goal of our trip was literally just to stay at the hotel for a series of days without it costing a lot of money. This is officially my new favorite thing to do...

That Time I Made a Carnival Melting Chocolate Cake

If there's one thing that everyone misses from Carnival cruises, it's the chocolate melting cake.


Carnival has the recipe online, and it always sounded easy enough, but I never took the time/effort to try it...

That Time I Cruised With A Group...

Booking multiple cabins with your friends or family is not automatically "booking as a group" on a cruise. There are additional steps, but then you get some extra stuff if you have enough cabins booked. 

The extra stuff and requirements to get it are different for every cruise line, so that's why I wanted to make this post!...

That Time I Unboxed My Misfits Market Produce...

It's here! Well, it was here Saturday. But today I'm telling you about it!  


My Misfits Market box has arrived. Let's crack it open!...

That Time I Bought My Produce From Misfits Market...

I decided to try out Misfits Market over the summer. It's is a subscription box service that sends less-than-perfect produce to you which reduces food waste. They use almost all non-plastic packaging which makes it even more appealing to me. 

(Click to get $10 off your first box!)

And I was generally happy with it. I did start to eliminate certain products from my selections based on how they held up during shipping...

That Time I Got Married... Again...

You may recall from a previous post that I selected "Leap Day" for my wedding anniversary date, but got married on a non-leap year. With those decisions, Husband and I booked a vow renewal on the Carnival Pride for Leap Day 2020, at which time our anniversary date would officially not be March 1 and would instead be Feb 29. 


Unlike this post, we were very fortunate to not have our renewal canceled by COVID (my heart goes out to everyone who did in 2020)...

That Time I Grove-d...

Okay, Grove, you got me. 

I'm never interested in these box subscription services, but Grove put out a commercial about all of the plastic-free products they have (ones that I had yet to successfully replace in my home) and I had to check it out. 

They really got me with their "get a bunch of free stuff with your first order!!!" promo...
