Our AMAZING GNO Cruise to Cozumel!

What happens when you put 9 women, 9 crazy women, I might add on a cruise ship for 5 days??? (other than "Lakeland Girls Gone Wild"?) Fun and fabulous memories that will last a lifetime! I love all of you dearly and looking forward to seeing you all again, soon. Thank you for the most AMAZING GNO trip ever!

The Knot Magazine Fall Preview Party

LOVE, LOVE, LOVED Ceviche and The Dessert Lady on Church Street in Orlando. Angela, Dee & Andrea attended The Knot Magazine Preview Party and enjoyed Ceviche's yummy sangria, tasty hors d'oeuvres and of course the fabulous wine & cheese at The Dessert Lady, a chic & trendy wine and dessert bar located across from Ceviche. A much-needed GNO!

GREAT Idea for a GNO!

I met with Eric Abril today from The Starship Dinner Cruise at the Tampa Port/Channelside. Their newest ship has a great story (helped transport people out of Manhattan on 9/11) and is newly rennovated and remodled. A perfect GNO offering a fabulous meal, drinks and of course dancing! Convieniently located @ Channelside in Tampa. Visit for more info. They offer a great 2 for 1 dining cruise. What a great Thanksgiving/Christmas night out! And, guess what was parked next to the Starship???? Oh yes, girls - Carnival Inspiration!!!! I so wanted to hop on!!!! 10 days til we sail away!!!!

Girls, need a secret for those long runs?

Add a mixture of candy corn & peanuts in your sports bra pouch and you will be revived! :-) Some runners may disagree, but I'm not a big "gu-shot" fan (from a personal experience while running my 1st Marathon). While in Tally this weekend, my typical pre-run protein bar and bottle of Figi weren't handy, so I snagged my "travelling treats" (yes - this snack tends to replace my meals when traveling - I know BAD BAD BAD) off the counter and took off. After mile 3 and again after 5, I popped a few and it really helped keep my energy up.....try it! Can you tell, I "think" a lot while running? I was thinking the entire time; I've got to tell my girlfriends about this!!!

Fall Favorites for the Ladies!

Some of you may ask how in the world, I, Angela Newell have time to watch TV..... my secret? TiVo! :-) Luckily, my little one is in bed by 8pm, so my evenings are full of work emailing, updating my blog, reading books and watching TV! :-) TiVo saves me during frequent water and email breaks. Here's some favorites....and no, I didn't leave Desparate Housewives off by accident - I'm just not a fan :-)

  • 90210 (started last week) - Tuesdays 8pm

  • Grey's - September 25th, 9pm

Hurricanes - GO AWAY!!!

No need to panic, ladies! 9 times out of 10, the cruise ship will sail! They will most likely reroute us if the storm nears our ship's ports. In our case (with only 1 stop), we would most likely remain at sea or go to another port. Don't forgot lots of dramamine and those rediculous-looking earrings, bracelets, etc (which do work by the way). I hope you have all printed your docs and Fun Pass. We sail in 2 weeks!
