Well, I completely fell off the planet there! I have no regrets though- I was in perfect marital bliss.
I just got to see my husband for 2 weeks! And I love him, and it was amazing, and the dog was so excited, and I love him, and...
It was amazing. All the worrying and freaking out was completely worth it, because I got to
see him, but not only that, somehow all my plans actually came together and I got to surprise him with a few things!
So the first night I got a hotel for us right on the water close to the city, so we didn't have a big trip coming from the airport and, since he's been stuck in a very hot and dry desert, I thought
he would like to see the water.
(This was the view from outside our little inn!)
It was just so good to actually see him. I know that I love him all the time, but to actually see him in person and touch him and hear him say all his crazy things- love just hits me like a ton of bricks.
Ok, so then the next night we went back to my parents' house and he got to see our little pup Q:
I don't know if you can tell from the photo, but that little dog's paws are barely touching the ground he's so excited!
And then...the BIG surprise.
I'm talking, pack your bags, this is something that had to have been blessed by the grace of God because I really don't know how this actually got pulled together so perfectly, BIG surprise...
Me: "So hun, where was it that you said that you always wanted to go again?"
Him: (wild-eyed) "Baby, where are we going?"
Me: "Where did you say you wanted to go?"
Him: (child-going-to-Disney-face) "Where are we going?!"
Me: "Where did you say?"
Him: "Oh my God. Are we...are we going to the Caribbean?!"
Yes! I love giving surprise gifts, and his excited reaction was adorable!
So my husband has never been, and he had said it in this "one day when we're rich we'll go" kind of way...but I really wanted something nice for him while he got a break. The major issue was (besides the money, obviously) was the fact that he does not have an available passport. HOWEVER, as PUERTO RICO is a US TERRITORY, you don't need one!
YES! And it is amazing. Absolutely so romantic, best vacation ever.
Our hotel room at the Marriott was beautiful, and the view...
So of course we got into a plush little hotel robes and immediately took glamor shots!
