The Loot

Boy did I sure miss fast internet. Holy Moly, I don't know how dial up people do it. I mean that is what we had years ago, and my Mum and Dad have that, but gosh using the ship's computer sure makes me realize how lucky I am for hi-speed.

I wanted to share some of the goodies we got from SU! as well as some of my goodies I picked up in Ketchikan. I think that is the only place I bought anything for me (that'll teach the old man to go on excursions without me...I get lonely and shop)

Each night we got a pillow gift, it was in a little bag with a tag, sometime it was a claim ticket so you didn't know what you were going to get till the next day, those ones were hard cause then you sat and wondered. I showed you the first one yesterday. The cute little purse. This was the next night.

Inside were two vouchers for sun glasses, so the next day we went to pick ours out, they were Maui Jim glasses, we each got a pair. Cool eh? I have to have mine made into prescription cause I can't see otherwise. "Gee officer I am sorry I ran into the stop sign, but don't I look great in my new sunglasses?"

Jeff's are the top ones, he does not need them into prescription just for using as a sunglass from time to time. Mine are the bottom, I feel like a hollywood star, they are big. I think we need to go to Cabela's to do it, but need to call, cause I might just need to have my perscription re-wrote.  This old gal wears trifocals.

The next night was a claim ticket and we spun the wheel the next day and won a new item from the new catalog.  Fun!

The next night was another favorite.

I was so excited to have a warm blanket ( I was freezing in the cabin, I had the heat thing cranked all the way over and it was still cold), I totally forgot to take a picture before I ripped the tag off it.

It is such soft plush on one side and then furry on the other side, and the fun rubber SU! on it.  I took many naps with it.  Plus I took one today with it and Toby was like "for me?" and he put it in his mouth, I think the fur makes him think toy, and I was like "No!" so I had to throw a sheet over me and my blanket to protect it as I napped...yeah a warm blanket and a sheet in AZ to nap. ha!

The next night we got our make n take supplies, I can't really show you that...it was brand new stuff for most of it...so fun!

Then we had another claim ticket, and that was a spin the next day for a brand new stamp set. You are going to love it!

The last night was this beautiful silver zipper pull for the next trip.  I love how they do this, it encourages those that have not made the trip yet, and it also makes us that have earned it (thanks to all of YOU!) excited for next year!

This is the SU! loot I brought home, not too shabby eh?  Thank goodness we took two suitcases each and packed light. As you can tell I took the picture very carefully so you can't really see anything, we can't show it yet.

Here are a couple goodies I picked up for little old me, gotta have a memento right?

I went into this one store and it had fun silver jewelry, trinkets, pewter stuff etc. It was a wife and a hubby, and I walked around and they asked if I was looking for anything in particular, and I said no that usually it finds me.  So I went around to another jewelry case and this little guy looked up at me and I said "you are coming home with me". The lady brought him out and I said I would look around some more. I looked a pair of earings and thought I just wanted the gecko. The couple were so nice though, the husband said "she was looking at these earings can you do her a deal?" and I told them no, I was not looking for a discount, that it was too early to be doing that, our ship just got in. I said I was happy to get my little gecko.  He is pewter and the leaf is painted with ferrari paint.  It is two pieces so you can move him around. I am calling him "Little Huggy" cause that is what he looks like he wants to do.

Then I went in another store, and found this beautiful ring, I was actually looking at this gorgeous diamond ring, some day I want one for my right hand or to wear in place of my wedding band but still says married ya know? Anyway I am sure it was a great deal but $2K was too much for this old gal.  I told the guy that my hubby would kill me if I bought it and I said maybe we would come back together later cause he was on his excursion, I figured if he caught two big ones, he might be in a good mood. Then I walked by this other case and saw silver jewelry, beautiful stuff more up my alley, and tried this one on and it fit perfect and so I got it instead.  The guy said if I came back later and got the other ring, he would take this ring's cost off of the other one and buy it for me. Maybe another cruise, I will save up my pennies and know I am looking for a ring.

Cool eh? I love it, and you can get different looks with the way you turn it. I had never heard of John Hardy but looked him up online, wow, I could see getting a few more pieces, he has beautiful stuff.

Well I think that is all for today, I have my stamp club tomorrow, and need to get ready for that.

Have an awesome Sunday and thanks for stopping in!
