The Honeymoon...

It would have been so nice to have been in St. Lucia, with a drink in hand... toes in the sand... That was the plan.
Well it didn't happen for us. This time at least... Mother Nature can be a real bitch sometimes. This time, Hurricane Tomas. Wonderful.

We got married Saturday- best night of our lives. Ever. The weather could not have been more perfect!
Got up on Sunday morning to go to the airport and when we arrived they said our flight was on time! We made it to the gate, got breakfast, and tried to sleep a little before boarding the plane. This is when the people at the gate made an announcement that the flight was now delayed until 11 that there was a bad storm going though.
We waited.
The flight was delayed again. They said that they could not get a hold of anyone on the island because the power was out. GREAT!
They cancelled the flight a few minutes later...
We left the airport and were told we were to fly Stand By the next morning.
Monday morning... read above. It was as if we had hit replay on the previous day. At least they cancelled the flight a little earlier than the day before.

When we got home my Dad called my and told me to call my cousins about their house! Well I didn't know what house he was talking about. I called Mike and he let us go to their beautiful Beach house for the whole rest of the week!!!! We packed the car in a few minutes, went and got gas and hit the road. Talk about a last minute decision!
We made to Grayton Beach, FL that night and had the best time. We relaxed, walked on the beach... even had drinks in our hands with our toes in the sand. Magic I tell you.

I was not even upset about the trip anymore. (JM was surprised that I was handling it so well!) We had the town to ourselves and I could not have asked for a better time! Just me and him. It was wonderful.

I have not upload my pictures just yet, but I will soon!

and St. Lucia you ask?

We will be there. Don't you worry about that! We are going on April 16th. BEFORE Hurricane Season even begins... It will still be a magical place, where everyone is in love and shows it on the streets- or so I have heard. We are looking forward to a second honeymoon only 6 months after we got married. We even got an upgraded room!

I guess everything happens for a reason... right?

I have thought about what everyone said to Blog about... Married life. So I will be posting again soon on that. All of the wonders of marriage. What we make for dinner. What we are doing with the house... and maybe one day soon babies. Never know and a girl can dream right?
But today a few things I am loving?

Our Pots and Pans! All Clad that is! They are wonderful... Spaghetti tonight for dinner!
Our new bedding- Slept like a baby last night!
Our new everyday china- Lenox Butlers Pantry- I love it and all of the mixing and matching that you can do with it!
Noticing a theme here???
Just to change it up....
More things I am loving?
Oil of Olay
Kitties- Baby Girl and Tilly
Crate and Barrel kitchen gadgets
Most of all... My wonderful handsome Husband!
