We just had an intense amount of rehearsing to change up our shows. The light at the end was another visit with Justin. Our producer and choreographer came to see our shows the same weekend and it was a really fun time. Our producer took us out for a special dinner in the nice restaurant on the ship. The food was unreal. Justin and I also had brunch that weekend at City Cellar, where I finally tried the donuts. OMG! We saw Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates and Secret Life of Pets. I loved both movies! 2016 has been a good year for movies. We went to the beach in the Bahamas for a hot minute, but we always have more fun in FL 🙂
Don’t have too much of an update. This past week has been pretty busy and we are all running on major caffeine. Our choreographer decided to change things in almost every number so we had a few rehearsals. I really like the changes and can’t wait until I don’t have to think about them. It’s probably a good thing to shake up my routine. Today, J came to visit for a bit on his way to kiteboard with friends. I gave up desserts for a week so I decided to have a yummy donut today.
J brought the pups to West Palm for a day of brunching and beaching. We had big ol lattes while lots of people came over to pet the fluffy puppies. Then we went to a dog brunch at Southern Railway Tap. They even had a dog menu! It was a cute idea, but there was only one other dog when we went. After that, we went to the dog beach and let them run wild. Of course, big puppy stole another dog’s ball and ran around like a crazy person the entire time. Before he left we got a smoothie at my new fav juice place, The Bee. I really like it on this coast.
You guys… Banana boating is crazier than white water rafting. Ours was definitely unbalanced from the start and we slowly began tipping over as our boat driver went crazy fast. All of a sudden, we flew off and into the water. Some people weren’t able to get back on the banana and rode in the boat so we didn’t have a problem after that. We were taken to the area where dolphin tours are given, and near multimillion dollar mansions, one of which was used in a Tyler Perry movie. We also stopped at this tiny little beach to take some pics. In this particular area, there are beautiful starfish unlike anything I’ve seen before. The water is so clear here that it cool things are easy to spot. Hopefully sharks weren’t too close by :o. On the way back, half of the boat fell off again, but not my side! I was so determined haha We tried to be present and not lose our phones to the ocean so this is an experience I will always remember and not just through pictures.
Justin came on a cruise a few days ago. It was his first cruise ever! We beached it up with my friends in West Palm on the first day and he came to my shows at night. After the show, he got conned into doing the dance contest. He ripped his shirt off and threw it on the floor in the middle of his dance. His team won! The next day we had a pretty cloudy day at the beach, but it was nice to chill and just be together. BBQ on the ship is my favorite so we got that before my shows. Our last night was spent at the comedy show which was so funny I cried a little. The next morning, we went to the mall and found him some cute clothes and got the best froyo from Forty Carrots at Bloomingdales. I am counting down to seeing him again.
My dad came to visit this past week and we had fun exploring West Palm. We got coffee and then lunch at ER Bradley’s. On the way to the restaurant I was interviewed by a news channel about the horrible Orlando shooting. I don’t even know what I said or if they’ll use it. Still pretty horrified by it all. After lunch, we walked along the water looking for manatees and then drove to Worth Avenue. We ended the day at a great, but pricey juice place near The Breakers. I was sick so ginger and turmeric were totally necessary. Missing my dad and hope his Father’s Day is fun.
