Well that is a slight exaggeration. My pants do fit, but they are snug. I didn’t wear pants the entire week I was away and I cannot say I missed them. Putting them on this morning was not a fun time.
I arrived home Thursday afternoon, but by the time we did the whole airport thing and dealt with some other shenanigans I didn’t get home until the evening, and by then I was just done. Just soo exhausted. I didn’t even open my computer until Friday morning, and it was my work computer, and over 200 emails greeted me. Hooray!
But ohhh man did I have fun in Jamaica. Best trip of my life. I don’t see how any other trip is going to be able to trump it, because it was just pure shenanigans with my best friends and their families the entire time.
I didn’t blog while I was away, because the internet was super sketchy and to be honest I was just having too much fun. I thought about doing it on the plane, but then I really got into Gone Girl (the book I am reading for my book club) and I decided to just save the blog stuff for later. I have SERIOUS recapping to do, and I think I am going to split it up a bit.
But for now, here are some highlights.
Dawn and Mark got married on the beach surrounded by their best friends and family.
Dawn was beautiful. Just a gorgeous, gorgeous bride. Everyone looked beachy and amazing, and we got some realllllly beautiful pictures on the beach and at the spa.
And then we partied.
We stayed at the Grand Palladium Lady Hamilton in Lucea, Jamaica, and our resort was incredible. This was the first all-inclusive resort I have been to, but everyone said it was the most beautiful resort they had ever been to and it was going to ruin me for the rest of my vacations. I think vacationing with all your friends will probably do that too…
I can’t describe how breathtaking our resort was though, and pictures don’t do it even a little bit of justice.
Shazzam. But more on that later.
We had some of our usual antics…
We made new friends…
We went on some trips, including a catamaran adventure…
And a day trip to Negril.
The food was AMAZING.
(Sorry about the feet, but that’s what ya get when you eat on the beach, mon)
Hence the pants being snug. It was a little bit TOO amazing. Not even just the a la cartes, but the buffets also. There will obviously be a post dedicated to the food.
The staff was amazing.
The pool was amazing.
The SWIM UP BAR was amazing.
The beaches were amazing.
I want to live in that ocean.
Oh, and Troy drank too much.
Just everything was perfect. A ridiculously fun time and I am really sad to be home. I can’t tell you how depressing it is to go from +30C and pure sun to -15C and SNOW. I came home to snow, and my walk to work Friday morning was sad.
Let’s just compare this to earlier this week…
Really not impressed with the cold. At all.
But at least my drive didn’t look like this:
Because my friend Emily’s did today. Ah, I am soo unbelievably glad I don’t drive to work anymore. But ugh. Take me back!
I will delve into everything further for sure, but I just wanted to write a little update so you guys didn’t think I died or was kidnapped.
Oh, also, I said I had a surprise post planned for while I was gone, but something went wrong and it didn’t post, so I’m just gonna save it for a little bit (it is really nothing great so don’t get excited, I am not trying to big it up!)
And ALSO, the video of the piggyback fail was on Ellen while I was gone. ELLEN! FRIGGIN’ ELLEN!!!!! I almost died when I found out. Here is the clip if you wanna watch:
I hope you guys had a great week! And I just have two words for you: DESTINATION. WEDDING. Have one.
