We're Back and Kind of Tan!

And by tan, I totally mean sunburned, but now its fading into a tan :)

I hope you all had a wonderful week last week and a wonderful weekend! I was away with AJ in St. Lucia for my 25th birthday! It was absolutely beautiful. We stayed at Sandals Halcyon Beach. At fist, we were afraid it would be a little corny, because we remembered commercials like this one, but we figured we'd try it out and see how it was.

It was awesome!

So, since I took 500 pictures in just 5 days on vacation (I actually don't think its that many when you figure its only 100/day) I thought I'd share some! These are from our first day of vacation!

 AJ was not thrilled to be up so early. We had to leave for the airport by 3am! This is 4:30am, just after we got through security, but were still waiting for our flight to Miami!

He is obviously much happier now that we are in St. Lucia! Our room had this cute little patio. We loved sitting out here to have tea and coffee in the morning and to have some wine after dinner! They even gave us champagne when we arrived, so we had that on the patio too!

After traveling for over 12 hours, we needed a snack, so we stopped by the beach bar. The view was so pretty!

Then we took a walk on the beach. This blue building is one of the fancy restaurants. We ended up eating here a few nights later. The food was awesome!

After the beach, we stopped by the pool. I loved these little bridges that went from one side of the pool to  the other. They looked so cool, but they were really hot to walk on! Seriously, they burned my toes!

 We got all dressed up for dinner. I loved this dress my Nonni bought me at Penny's.

We ate in the open air restaurant. I loved the big lights wrapped around this tree!

AJ taught me how to play pool. I wasn't very good, but I did win one game! But only because he hit the 8 ball into the wrong pocket...that still counts though!

Of course I couldn't pass up a picture of these pretty shoes. I threw them in my suitcase at the last minute, and ended up wearing them to dinner every night!

Well, that was fun re-living my first day of vacation, although its making me a little sad since I'm getting ready to go to work :( I hope you have a great Tuesday!
