free perks

Our resort was fantastic for a number of reasons, but one of the best things was all the 'honeymoon' perks.  A ton of other resorts we looked at offered the special Honeymoon Packages... inclusive of special dinner, champagne on arrival, and so on and so on.  Sounds great, no?  Yes! However, all these resorts would charge something close to an extra thousand dollars a week!  YES, I said $1K. Ca-raziness.  Hunny and I decided we did NOT need to spend extra money for people to remind us that we were on our honeymoon.  We were fairly certain we'd remember.  Here's hoping, no?

Anyway, much to our surprise, we were notified of many honeymoon-related perks, already included.  'Honeymooners' door banner sweetly awaiting us on our door.  Rose petals all over the room.  Iced champagne next to the bed with fresh fruit.  Breakfast in bed to be set up any day we chose.  And a Honeymooners dinner in the restaurant of our choosing.  Special seats on the water, specialized menu, and a gorgeous table display.  LOVE!

So... here's pics from our special honeymooners dinner night.  I'm not one for re-wearing dresses for occasions when I can help it.  I decided ahead of time that this trip would be the exception.  Bought this dress for a girlfriend's wedding last spring.  Loved the dress entirely too much not to wear again for something special!!

Oh hey, husband.

And here, documented for you all, is the face I make when ever so sweetly reminding my hubs that "you're stuck with me forever...see??"

Happy almost weekend!


  1. OMG, that last picture is so funny (and cute)!

    All those built in perks sound great. I agree with you. Sometimes you don't need to spend all that extra money for the bells and whistles. Time alone with your loved one is perk enough!

  2. Did you stay with a Secrets or dreams resort?! Those are the same perks I had on my honeymoon in December!
