At SEA




We are back from Cruising the Caribbean and it was filled with all sorts of adventures!  We were super lazy and got fatter by the second!  We have inside jokes that will keep us laughing for years and now that I am back to reality and going crazy with land sickness (the road, the house, the car all keep swaying back and forth!) I want to be back on the ship!  The three days at sea were so relaxing...Above are a few pictures from those magical few days aboard the Coral Princess!

BON VOYAGE!!!

Where in the world is Sherry Lynn Ellsworth?!?? Sometimes even I can't keep up with myself! Monday I was in Dallas...Today I am in Virginia...and tomorrow morning I fly to Florida where I will be boarding a cruise ship bound for a 7 day relaxing Christmas adventure to the Western Caribbean. I am so excited and it will be a memorable holiday spent with Scott, Stin and Luci Hansen....and it will be warm!!! Life couldn't possibly get any better than this. =)

Dallas Update

My weekend in Dallas was a great getaway from the madness of Christmas shopping and holiday stress! It was wonderful meeting my cousins Brandy and Jeff's adorable brand new little twins, catching up, laughing, and hanging out with My favorite Kelly and chilling with the Brady Bunch. The Cowboys game didn't give us the win we expected...but you can't win them all, right? It was a hard loss but we're getting excited for the playoffs and more season ticket fun fun in the future! I didn't take many pictures, but I'm posting a few I have on my phone.


Before the game with my new Gnome! Thanks SHAR!!

Christmas Music

Wow it has been a while since I've had even a minute let alone time to post anything on here!  Christmas time has always been so crazy for me...but this year, I find time to zone out listening to my two favorite Christmas CD's for the moment.  I just thought I'd share them with you.

Josh Groban "NOEL" and Sarah Mclachlan "WINTERSONG"

What a Weekend!


This long Thanksgiving weekend has been so fun. The days were filled with cooking, eating, laughing, lots of football, the board game Ticket to Ride, snuggling, naps, bike rides, hikes, good movies, more food, crafts, healing, coughing and soup just to name a few. The Eyres left last night, and two more leave tomorrow. To end I am going to take a quote from Scott's Thanksgiving Rap that he wrote...

"Happy Thanksgiving, we're so blessed to be together,
Making memories this day that will surely last Forever!"

I've turn into a little make up artist in the Hansen home. Now when I walk into their home,
I get asked for makeovers before I get a hello. I love it. =)

Noah, Kristi and I went to see this movie after Thanksgiving Dinner.
Despite the critics reviews, I really enjoyed it. I give it a B +

Just a random bit of Thanksgiving Weekend Fun Fun. I can't get enough of these guys! =)

Happy Thanksgiving!

I am sitting on the couch watching the Dallas COWBOYS game with Kristi on my right and Scott on my left. What a wonderful day we had! I ate more than I should have...but isn't that a must on Thanksgiving day?? Stin and her mother cooked an amazing meal and I contributed a bit with some of my own family traditions with the ever so famous 7 layer Jello Salad and home made rolls. Thank you Grandma Ellsworth for the recipes! I love my cook book! My stomach still hurts from all the eating and laughing. After an amazing meal, we went to the movies and half of us went to August Rush and the other half went to Enchanted. After Movie Fun Fun we came home and stuffed ourselves some more with slices of banana cream pie, pumpkin pie, cherry cheesecake, apple pie, pecan pie...seriously! I have to have gained at least 10 pounds today!

As I sit and think of all the things I am thankful for my list keeps growing every year. No matter where I am in the world or where I am in my life I always find myself surrounded by a loving family, wonderful friends, and countless blessings.

Today I am thankful for Andy, Gina and sweet little Kaede Ashby for letting me stay with them in Maryland this past week and for all of Gina's Culinary Fun Fun.

I am thankful for the Hansen's...my home away from home...and all they do for me. I'm thankful for Noah, Kristi and McKay Eyre for traveling the lovely 4 hours on a bus to be here with us for Thanksgiving. What great friends they are and how blessed I am to have them in my life!

The list could go on and on but I hope everyone had a wonderful day spent with friends and family and Football. GO COWBOYS!!! =)

We were lucky enough to receive some pictures from the lady Krissy spent Thanksgiving dinner with. I thought I'd post a few pictures for all to see a little Turkey Love from all the way in Germany!!

SURPRISE

Everything went better than perfect for Stin's Surprise Birthday Party. I couldn't have asked for a more perfect night. I was a little bit nervous because it was so last minute...surprise, surprise...but with all of Gina's help and Scott's sneaky sneakiness...we pulled it off and Stin was totally surprised. The whole 80's theme was a perfect excuse for people to dust off the old leg warmers and poof up their hair! We had about 30 people show up and had 80's music playing on the ghetto blaster and we served tator tots and other yummy goodies. It was a TOTALLY AWESOME night...everyone looked RAD. Happy Birthday Stinny Poo!
I Totally LOVE YOU!!!

NY 2 DC




What a long night!  After a mad dash with Kristi and McKay in a taxi during rush hour...I made it to the bus with just enough time for a hug and a tearful goodbye to my Noah, Kristi and little McKay!  I had gotten so use to my little life with them and I am already missing it.  

The bus dropped me off four very long hours later at 14th street and I walked to the nearest METRO entrance I could find looking like a tired worn down bag lady!  I had my huge backpack fully loaded strapped to my back, a small rolling suitcase with two purses and a bag hanging off of it, and a pillow with a blanket and my lap top stuffed in it!  I must have looked pretty helpless because three different people offered me help.  I was very thankful for my newly acquired subway skills from trying to navigate my way through New York City (it is a zoo down there) because the DC Metro system was a piece of cake in comparison!  My sweet Gina Ashby was patiently waiting for
me at midnight, bless her heart, just outside the Metro door and now I am comfortably laying
in bed waiting for some sleepy sleepy to hit me quick.

  My late night blogging entry is due to the fact that Kristi Eyre and I made a little bet/pact that we would blog at least every other day or else the other person gets to post whatever they want on the other's page.  So...it looks like this is the first out of the two blog entries I will be making tonight.  He he he....

Birthday Adventure Part 3: THE ZEPHYR

The adventure continued! Next stop, I had no clue but on our way there...I got a little Birthday
Serenade Mexican Style.

When we got off the subway, Noah had to leave for a meeting so it was just us girls for this next part. I was a little sad our 3rd Musketeer couldn't join us but I knew we would be meeting up with him later.

Kristi had arranged for us to go on a Sunset New York City Harbor Cruise aboard the ZEPHYR: a Yacht to experience a one hour narrated harbor cruise. It departed from Pier 16 at the South Street Seaport and sailed up the Hudson and East Rivers in Manhattan, and past the historic sites such as the Empire State Building, the Chrysler Building, the Brooklyn Bridge and the Colgate Clock. The most amazing part of the harbor cruise was the up-close view of Statue of Liberty National Monument. I couldn't get enough pictures and even the ones I did manage to get didn't do it justice! We got a few though and the time of day made the early evening on the harbor almost even magical.


BROOKLYN BRIDGE




It was a very COLD day!



Such a Beautiful Night.

Thank you Noah and Kristi for an unforgettable evening!

Birthday Adventure Part 2: Little Italy

After we left the Top of the World, we got back on the subway and headed to destination number two. Just before we got there, Noah told me we were going to LITTLE ITALY!
Being that I just returned from Italy not to long ago, they thought it would be fun to take me there where we could eat dinner at the first pizza place in NYC! The name of the restaurant is LOMBARDI'S and the pizza was absolutely amazing! Noah also wanted to give me the opportunity to practice my broken Italian and order the meal for us. The wait time to be seated was ridiculous so we ordered one large pizza da porta via (to take away) and left the restaurant drooling...ready and waiting for a SLICE! I felt like I was back in Bella Italia!

On top of the World

The first part of the Sherry Birthday Adventure started out with a stop at an office building on 5th Avenue in Manhattan. Noah and Kristi were in charge of the festivities for the day and all I was told was to bring a coat and wear some comfortable shoes. We got on the subway to what was going to be our first stop when I heard Noah speak up loudly to the crowded subway car announcing that it was my birthday and if everyone would please join in singing Happy Birthday to me. I was so embarrassed! By the time I got over that little shocker, we were 60 floors up in the sky looking at the most breathtaking view of the city I'd ever seen.

Next stop...I had no clue but I sure was excited to find out!

Stay tuned for more Sherry Birthday Adventure Fun....
