where’s my dramamine?

October 13, 2015

yes, it’s true. we’re hitting the high seas with The Property Brothers. we’re sailing away. to mexico. and we may never come back. but it’s all for work.

{junk gypsy co.}

it’s part of our job description: “must engage in professional travel to tropical locales for the sake of the business”…that’s my story and i’m sticking to it.


{junk gypsy co.}

here’s the deal, ladies. jonathan & drew called and asked if we’d go on a cruise with them, and after about .005489 seconds of careful pondering, discussing, debating, and weighing the positives and negatives, we said yes. i mean, helllooooo?? hanging with our brothers from HGTV, a tropical destination, drinks with umbrellas, and we get to call it “work”. this, ladies & gentlemen, is what webster would define as a no-brainer.

but don’t be hatin’ on us…you can come along! in fact, y’all MUST come. because we want to drink fruity drinks with umbrellas WITH you! we want to snorkel and look for sea shells and act like crazy tourists all in the name of WORK, with y’all!

that’s right….it’s the ULTIMATE DESIGN CRUISE. headed straight for the crisp carribean. for the blue waters of key west and cozumel. and you’ll be TRAPPED. on a boat. with the property brothers. and us. and all you can eat buffets. and all kinds of design-y tips and tricks and workshops. with a fruity drink. and an umbrella straw. possibly in a coconut.

who cares that i get sea sick/car sick. who cares that my childhood roadtrips & vacations were spent yelling for dad to pull over so i could hurl on the side of the road just in the nick of time (good times. good times.). but really….they got stuff for that nowadays, right? i mean, rightttt?? this is my first cruise. i’m a cruise virgin. but the way i look at it, i can gear up with those wristbands and ear things and ginger chews and life will be goooooood. right?

y’all go HERE. and read up. and get excited. and start the countdown. and start packing those bags. because ain’t nothing stopping us. the griswalds are headed for the high seas.

and feel free to leave cruise hints and tips below….AND oh my gosh, let me just warn you now….i will be periscoping. unless of course, i’m busy hurling…of which of course, i WILL NOT  periscope.

    If they still have the ear patch that’s the BEST for sea sickness – I’m the worst sea traveler but the patch or non drowsy Dramamine are great?

    Ditch the Dramamine – Opt for Ginger Root Capsules! No side effects… No alcohol restrictions (in case that matters)!
    Begin taking them a few days before embarkation and continue a day or two after disembarkation… It will even help with post-cruise sea legs!

    Sail Safe – Godspeed!
