When we woke up that morning to head to Barbados I was dreading it. I hated flying but I couldn't get enough of being called "husband and wife" and it still makes me all giddy and tingly inside. It's okay if you feel like vomiting right now. I'm sure a lot of people felt the same way if they ever overheard our conversations during that time period.
+ I confess that we didn't go snorkeling, go on crazy island adventures or go on any expensive yacht sunset cruises but ya know what we did do? Each other. A lot. Deal with it.
+ I confess I was really envious of the old retirees who could go on aforementioned sunset yacht cruises, but the ocean view with the hubs was enough for me! Oh and many colorful, alcoholic beverages.
+ I confess that I will be a fish snob for life after having the BEST fish there. I've had salmon since the honeymoon and it's just not the same....#snob. The food there was overall just so amazing and fresh!
+ I confess that I drank more rum than fricken Captain Jack Sparrow that week. Perfectly acceptable to be tipsy on a Tuesday...at noon right?
+ I confess that I took full advantage of social media outlets to make sure my coworkers and friends knew that I was relaxing in front of the ocean while they were slaving away at work throughout the week. Because holy hell on earth...planning that wedding was like running a marathon I didn't train for.
+ I confess that the one thing that did suck was that our trip wasn't all-inclusive....and the food was $$$. The food on the resort was amazing, but we made sure to eat elsewhere like everyone else did and went shopping to cook some of our own meals. Of course Josh was in heaven when he ordered hot wings at a nearby cafe. Look at that face. Happy hubs.
Our first morning in Barbados we got up late and wanted breakfast brought up to the room...although it was all delicious and fancy...$50 each boom. No, the eggs were not laced with gold shavings...but damn that coffee was good.
We made a little bird friend and named him Pringle since we kept on feeding him Pringle crumbs from our balcony. Smart bird....we paid up the ass for groceries and here he is condo-hopping for snacks. He had the right idea...
I confess that I even liked the beer there (I'm more of a wino).
+ I confess that since Josh and I have been together for 8 whole years, I didn't think we would go through that "honeymoon phase" but oh man we hit it hard and it's still going! I get so whiny and annoying when I'm not with him it's ridiculous. Swimming in the ocean with him for the first time was absolutely HEAVEN despite getting loads of salt in my mouth. Damnit, I'm such an amateur. Oh and just throwing it out there that I'm SO proud of my fitness progress. Not going to lie, I think I look pretty solid here. Thanks kettlebells!
I confess I rocked some pretty mean tan lines when I switched bikinis. #vacationproblems...bloody hell...
On our last night, we went with some other people to go experience some nightlife and had Marlin for the first time! Oh and more rum. SURPRISE. I swear, two of those small cups will knock you on your ass.
Right before we were going to leave for the airport, it rained for the first time! It was gloomy and depressing...foreshadowing to what was to come with the four-hour flight delay and missing our connecting flight.
I can't believe that it's been close to two months since we said our I dos and I can't wait to see what's in store for us!!
