How I decided to reveal our pregnancy news to my husband!! Converse crib shoes because he loves his Chuck Taylor's & red because as a toddler my first high-top "basketball" shoes were red Converse! Love the sentimental value & it's gender neutral BONUS!
Best cruise idea - take a hanging shoe tree, fill it with your toiletries, jewelry, over the counter medications, etc. Pack it full in your luggage, when you get to your cabin, just hang on the bathroom door. Keeps your counter free of clutter, and I have to believe the room attendant loves not having all that stuff on the counter too!
