Default Formal dinners...to dress..or not....

Good Afternoon Cruisers!
This is Trip's daughter Nicole...A.K.A. RedSoxGirly...My mom encouraged me to check out this fabulous website...so of course I did and have a comment of my own to make:
I am a casual girl indeed...I am most comfortable in my jeans and a t-shirt..but when I go out on a cruise, I look forward to formal dinners. When was the last time I had the chance to get all glammed up for an evening....my prom? OY! That is too many years ago... My wedding? That day was so hectic I only remember what I see in the video! So for me when I have the opportunity to get into a sparkly little number...do my make up and hair...I'm excited! I don't think "AW I have to get all fancy tonight for dinner!" So when I see the shlubs walk into the dining room on formal night in their shorts like they just came back from their excursion, I feel even MORE glamorous! And wonder.."What are these people thinking...didn't they read the handbook???" There is plenty of time to get back into those jeans and t-shirts..but only so few moments when you feel glamourous...As always GO RED SOX!

Default Like Mother...Like Daughter!

Nicole, I've only been coming to this site since February. My DH is taking me on my 1st ever Cruise for our 30th Wedding Anniversary on May 13th AND WE ARE SO VERY EXCITED!

You sound like your Mom...! And that's a compliment for sure!

I am excited about dressing up and I love your Mom's "Styles At Sea". Your Mom saved me from a Fashion Disaster! !

Anyways, I enjoyed reading your post!

P.S. I noticed your Mom and you saying,"Oy!" Is that a Boston expression?
