Not a cruise, but have traveled. Shaker and packets travel easy and add some tupperware and use available microwaves and you are good.

That sounds like fun! Could you contact the cruise line and ask about special dietary needs? I'm looking forward to our summer trip -we only see this side of the family once a year, so I'm expecting they will be surprised to see the change in me

Good morning!

We're finally heading into some warmer weather. I may even be able to open my windows this weekend Next official WI is this afternoon, but I'm not worried. These hips don't lie & they are sliding into smaller pants with ease. My waist on the other hand.......


People often say that motivation doesn't last. Well, neither does bathing -that's why we recommend it daily. ~Zig Ziglar

Question Dallas IPers

We are taking a trip to Dallas in 3.5 weeks. Can you give me an idea as to what the weather is like down there at the end of April? This winter has been rough all over and is still hanging on up here in MN BUT does it tend to be warmer down there?

ALl I have are sweaters so if it is getting warm there I need some new clothes LOL.

Survived Day 1, feeling OK. Did NOT like the maple oatmeal, so did a quick change to a drink. I did wake up with dark circles under my eyes. I never have dark circles, anyone else get this? I searched but didn't find anything, so maybe unrelated. Thanks everyone, have a great IP day

HA! Girl, this is Tx.. apparently we can experience all 4 seasons in 1 day!

I would say it would be mild 80's and maybe some spring showers. Usually april is our wet season with thunderstorms or Tornados!
