One day we kinda all joked about taking a cruise. Me, Brian, Alli, and Jessie. And it actually happened!! Brian and I are first time cruisers. Always thought it was odd to be living, dining, swimming, and laying out with 2 thousand other people in the middle of the ocean. Haha and it was kinda weird. A fun new adventure kind of weird. We booked the Carnival Cruse that set sail in Long Beach, stopped off at Catalina island, then at Ensenada Mexico, and back to Long Beach. It took about 5 days. Brian gets motion sickness so we thought we would be in TROUBLE on the ship. But he did GREAT!! He just wore those bands around his wrists. We did a lot of instagramming in Catalina…. because we had service. So this just looks like a Catalina trip. haha. O well.

I’ve been really into these little videos lately. It’s put together using a really fun app called videolicious. You just select your clips, pick a song, and it processes it together for you! It’s fun because you never know what you’re going to get. and it’s good for perfectionists like me that could spend the whole day making it perfect in imovie or something similar. But nope… You can’t control it. and that’s just what I need.

Ps. I was SOO shocked how beautiful and fun Catalina Island was. I had never been there. But grew up in Southern California. WHY DIDNT ANYONE TELL ME ABOUT THIS? I think a fun girls trip should be in the works! It’s like another country, it feels.

Am I the only first time cruiser?

    I’ve never been on a cruise – being out in the water freaks me out! But I’m definitely going to try that app :)

    Sweet video! I got the app and have been experimenting-did you have the narration part on your video? I like that you just had music-how did you do that?!
