Aruba

Did I ever tell you ladies where I was going for my honeymoon??? To be honest all my thoughts are running into one right now so I can't remember what I've posted about or not. I am completely drained from the final wedding preparations mostly because I'm a HUGE procrastinator so I keep focusing on the part where I can to relax and demand a cabana boy to bring me another strawberry daiquiri!

We're going to Aruba!!!

We initially planned to wait until after Christmas because we wanted to go to St. Maarten/St. Barts and we're in the midst of hurricane season and we didn't want to risk a ruined honeymoon but after some long talks we came to conclusion that if we didn't go right after we got married we may never end up going because life always gets in the way and you can always find some excuse not to go.

So about a month ago we booked our honeymoon to Aruba. After some research I found out that Aruba is below the hurricane belt and has a very slight risk of getting hit. We leave Sunday 8/30 at 3:30pm and return Sunday 9/7 leaving us Labor Day off to rest and recover!

We couldn't agree on all-inclusive vs. not all-inclusive so we're spending the first 4 nights at the RIU Palace (all-inclusive) and the Marriott Resort & Stellaris Casino. I am soo excited and from the pictures it looks beautiful! We read great reviews on both resorts and got some great summer deals because it's technically off season! We've heard that Aruba has tons of delicious restaurants and friends have made suggestions but if anyone has any other must eat/do/see let me know. Now I'll leave you with some pics to enjoy:
