We left the house around 4 am Friday morning.  We had a very smooth trip in with no hiccups.

We arrived at the resort around 3:00 and found champagne and of course, a towel creation


Some pictures of the beach



our room was on the top left of that building


hanging out on the beach playing the travel Monopoly game… which ended up being the best 5.00 investment ever.  We played alot… like 100 times.  Not much else to do in a hotel room in the rain.

I am not kidding you when I say this is the only picture Tommy and I got together while we were there…  whoops…


p.s.- how’s about my face is one big freckle?  I’ve never had this many freckles until I was pregnant… coincidence?

…and then it proceeded to rain the rest of the day.  Hard.  And we were both pretty ill at this point with colds.  We got massages in the morning, which were amazing, and then spent most of the rest of the day in bed. 

The little hut in the middle of this picture is the swim up bar, which we loved :)


another view from right outside our window.  The “Palapa Hut,”  which was a restaurant and bar. 




So, to summarize:  We definitely had some good times and relaxing times, but bad weather and bad colds were a pretty huge letdown.  I guess we just had really high expectations of day after day of lounging on the beach and in the pool, and it was more like day after day of clouds, rain, sore throats and sneezing.  These factors made homesickness/missing Luke way worse.  I think as time goes on I’ll look back on the vacation more fondly, but right now I’m honestly just so happy to be home.  But, I’m so thankful to have had that time with Tommy <3

I’d like to give a huge shout out to my girls Melissa and Becca!  When we arrived in Miami we found out our connecting flight to National had been canceled and we had to reschedule a flight into Dulles.  Melissa and Becca picked us up from Dulles at midnight and drove us to National to get our car.  Love you boos!  Owe you big time!


  1. Awe, I bet you guys missed Luke SO much!! The place you went to looks absolutely beautiful, though! :)welcome home!

  2. Glad you had a good time. You have me wanting to invest in Travel Monopoly now. LOL
