the honeymooners

And no, I'm not talking about these folks...
I'm talking about these folks...
We had the most amazing honeymoon in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic last week.  It was so nice to sneak away after all the wedding planning and festivities and spend time together just the two of us.  We stayed at the all-inclusive Majestic Elegance Punta Cana, and it was an absolutely amazing resort.

Are you ready for picture overload?  I took almost 300 pictures, but I promise I won't put that many up here. First up, our room:
By now you know that I'm a little bit OCD, and I got up early the first morning we were there to unpack and get organized for the week. And, after this, I opened up the curtains to our balcony and found this:
Can you believe it? It doesn't even look real! And this was our life for a whole week; it was so amazing.  

A typical day in the Dominican life for us started out with leaving our room in the morning and walking to breakfast.
Courtyard outside of our room.
Our favorite restaurant - Sea and See
 Typical Breakfast for me each morning - so good!
 After breakfast, we would typically head out to the beach since it was right at the restaurant.
One awesome thing about our room is that the balcony looked over the pool bar, and they always had all kinds of entertaining things going on down there.  For instance, everyday they did water aerobics, and the staff that would lead were hilarious.  Check out this guy - "Johnny Bravo" is what they called him, and he always wore this construction hat.
In the afternoon, we would head down to the pool and get some sun...too much sun in my case! 
By far, out of all of our meals, Dinner was the best all week long! 
Dessert at the Steak House
Sushi and Dinner at the Japanese Restaurant
Drinks before our Romantic dinner on the beach
Our last dinner in the DR - Lobster at the Sea and See
And, if you haven't seen enough pictures yet, here are a few other good ones!
Our room was on the third floor, so I took quite a few of these.
We could see both the pool and ocean from our room
There was a cute little crab in the bathroom by the beach!
My favorite Elevator pic!
That's my husband!!!
Our trip was so amazing, and it was so nice to relax just the two of us after all the craziness of planning a wedding, buying a house, etc.  Now we can enjoy our lives at home as husband and wife and so far it has been absolutely wonderful!
