Apparently I forgot to mention, WE ARE MARRIED!!
But as important as that is, and as much fun as we had on the big day, this honeymoon stuff is so much more fun!! Eleven days in Mexico!!
We are in Puerto Vallarta and totally enjoying ourselves. We were here in January, and so we had already figured the city out a little bit. We ride the local bus everywhere. Except when we were coming back from Wal Mart because we had a bunch of groceries. These local buses are kind of like roller coaster rides. Crowded roller coasters with no safety equipment. Fun right?! It really is.
When we booked our honeymoon we had all these grand plans to go on excursions and adventures. And guess what? We have not done any of them. We have literally done nothing. Laying on the beach and going in the pool, and going into town for dinner pretty much consumes are days. I forgot to mention sleeping til noon. Yeah, tough life, I know.
We were sitting under our palapa yesterday, contemplating an adventure for today, and I suggested massages. Adam was unsure as he had never had one before. I called to set up an appointment at a local spa, and the price shocked me. I mean, it is Mexico and all, but really? $35 per person?? For 75 minutes?? That's a fricken steal! So we booked them and headed into town this morning. After coffee, a delicious breakfast, and wandering around a town a bit we found the massage place. I could tell Adam was nervous, but he played along. He enjoyed it too I think. It was getting hot after our massage so we headed back to the condo on the bus for a siesta.
The wedding was a success, rain and all; our honeymoon is perfect. Today, as we start our new life together, we could not be happier. That glow they talk about could be from the sunburns but I'm pretty sure it's coming from the inside. Our eyes are bright, our skin smells of sunscreen, and our bellies are full.
