We spent our Thanksgiving holiday cruising down to Cabo San Lucas, or the Mexican Riviera, aboard the Crown Princess. The Crown is one of the oldest ships in the Princess Cruise fleet, but it certainly didn’t disappoint. We had a magical time. It was absolute paradise for five days.

So I know I said I’d be taking my camera on my trip back east and snapping pics to show. But I decided to really embrace the “I’m on vacation” mentality and didn’t even touch the camera.
Not Entirely Ordinary is officially on vacation. I’m NC beach bound to be lazy in the sand for 8 days and I could not be more excited. I thought about trying to schedule posts to go up while I was gone, or possibly posting things while I’m away, but I decided I needed to take a REAL vacation…which means not worry about a wifi signal. But don’t worry.
Before the official wedding ceremonies commenced, we took some time to explore a different side of Nashville. We happened to be in town at the same time as the CMA Music Festival in Downtown Nashville.
I consider myself truly blessed to be a part of a huge bi-racial family. My mother is American and my father is from India.
As Girl’s Weekends go, this one was pretty boss. The hubs was busy with his own guy’s weekend so I figured why not do the same. I hopped a flight back east to my old stomping grounds in Washington DC. My mom and sister met me there. We had grand plans for the weekend. And by grand I mean a crap ton of shopping.
Let’s back up a bit though. Like I said, DC is my former home.
As evident by the “Travel” tab in the blog, I love to travel. Quick trips or long vacations, doesn’t matter to me. Put me on a plane (even though I don’t LOVE flying) and send me anywhere.
When hubs and I made the move from the East Coast to the West Coast, we knew where we were going to live, but we weren’t quite sure where home would be.
This year’s Thanksgiving celebration saw us heading to the East Coast to spend quality time with my family in Wilmington, NC. I come from a very big family on both my mother’s side and my father’s side. This year we decided to split up the celebrations which meant three days of family, fun and so. much. food.
Of course we had a turkey and all the trimmings on Thanksgiving.
