so i finally had time to load up my photos last night.
here we are on the first night, eating our room service like zombies.
here's that huge white couch i mentioned:
the vaulted ceilings make the room feel so fresh and open.
and those big doors open all the way up!
when we arrived there was a bottle of champagne on ice.
we were half asleep, but couldn't resist a cold glass of bubbly..
and yes, we drank the rest the next morning- flat champagne for breakfast.
here's our room.
the bed is shockingly comfortable!
there's me in a mirror!
we woke up wednesday morning to beautiful sunny skies!
we headed straight to the beach.
i slapped on my barefoot sandals-
andrew started snapping photos of me down the beach..
so i started sprinting toward him.
luckily we got the whole thing in photo.
wait wait wait...
let's zoom/enhance that second one:
so that's the face i make when i run?
all our photos will look like this next one throughout the week.
the other guests at this hotel are old, not friendly, and spend most of their time with their faces buried into their copy of people magazine, or 50 shades of gray.
not the most fun group of people ever.
but we are having enough fun for all of them!
back on our porch now.
andrew is looking good!
and there's me.
these little guys are all over the place.
i think they are so cute.
as promised, i snapped a couple photos at the restaurant.
what a view, right?!
andrew went through a few of these bowls.
(chopped habenero and jalapenos)
we wandered around and stopped by the main lobby.
i like the big wrap around porches.
back to the beach.
there we are!
everywhere the colors are amazing.
and they completely change when the sun starts to set.
and again, we return to our porch.
just in time for sunset!
those green leaves just totally light up at this hour.
what a cozy cottage!
the tall feathery grass is so peaceful.
and so are the clouds.
wednesday night we had a special night planned.
we had reserved the "spa cottage" for the evening.
basically, this includes:
a couples massage,
an hour to steam room and get ready,
a romantic candlelit dinner for two,
and an hour to spoon on the daybed with a bottle of champagne.
i nearly died when i walked in and realized it looked like
the set of the bachelor.
rose petal/floating tea light filled bathtub?!
i wasn't entirely shocked to find it was ice cold.
here's the daybed where i would try to convince andrew that i was better than all the other bitches on the show (if we were on the bachelor).
it wasn't meant to be.
about halfway through the massage, andrew began to feel not good.
his tumbly got rumbly and he got reaaaaally nauseous.
he tried to muscle through, but soon it became very obvious that he had food poisoning.
we had our guy cling wrap our food and send it to the room.
while i sampled all of it, andrew took pepto and hated life.
i closed out the night with some creme brulee in bed,
and inside the nfl.
sweet andrew was so sad to have missed a lovely evening.
he sleepily and sickly asked me to go take a photo of myself in the mirror-
since i looked so pretty!
haha he is even sweet when he's sick!
today is a better for ange.
can't wait to catch you up on what comes next!
see you tomorrow!
