I think this is one of the most exciting things we've bought for our wedding....

Okay, it's not so much for the wedding itself, per se.... it's our HONEYMOON!! Chris sent over the information, and we officially have tickets to Cabo San Lucas for the week after our wedding in November! The above pictures are from the RIU Santa Fe, which is where we're going to stay. From all the pictures and reviews online, it looks like it will be a really nice place. And since it's all-inclusive, it's a great deal too!
I am SO SO SO excited about this! I haven't had a "proper" vacation in years. Seriously. And Chris and I have never gone away anywhere, just the two of us, that didn't involve visiting family or going to a friend's wedding. Don't get me wrong, those are nice things to do. But this will be our first true vacation. And I'm looking forward to it! I think I just got some more motivation for keeping up on my cardio!
My meeting with the florist went really well Saturday. Now I'm just waiting for her quote. But she was really nice and very professional. She really seemed to understand my style, and lots of pictures to look through. The added bonus was that they were loading up flowers for another wedding that afternoon into their van, and the flowers were beautiful! The arrangements and bouquets were really very pretty. Since this florist is friendly with and works with my DOC quite a bit, I'm not too worried about using her. In fact, my DOC said she'd go pick up the flowers for us and bring them out, so we wouldn't have to pay a delivery fee (hey, every $45 counts!).
Finally, the 100-degree heat has broken for a few days.... Hooray! It's so nice to be able to walk outside!! Okay, a little stretch, but seriously - 106 (our high on Sunday) is hot. And it doesn't matter if it's dry-heat or humid or whatever. It's hot. This is why spring and fall are the busiest wedding seasons down here! Can you imagine getting into your dress and walking to the car when it's 106 outside??

I was looking at those pics like hey that place looks familiar!! That's kinda where I stayed - we were at the RUI Palace which is right next to the RUI Santa Fe, I think you can go to both, the Santa Fe is just a little farther back from the beach. Y'all will love it!!!

Oh honeymoon. You deserve it, lady. (And I'm here to tell you, it's a vacation, but one million times better!)
