Orange Juice, Soda Water, Tequila and a lime

Long ago and far away in a land we call vacation this was my drink of choice.
When Chris and I were in Jamaica things were simple.
Pool or beach?
Rum or tequila?
Nap or read a book?
Snorkel or sail?
Restaurant or room service?
Ahhhh, I miss vacation.

We have been home for almost a month now and I have been putting off blogging about it because that means it is really in the past.

Chris and I are generally pretty adventurous, we like to go places and do things all the time. However, since Chris was coming off a deployment we decided it would be best to do nothing but sit on a beach and enjoy each other's company. So it was decided that we would spend 8 days at the Sandals resort in Montego Bay Jamaica.

It was glorious! The beaches were white and soft and clean. The water was clear and blue and perfectly cool. The food was yummy and available at anytime of day or night. We started out in one amazing room with ocean view. However, after the power went out one night, we were moved to an even more amazing room with an even better ocean view.

We celebrated our second anniversary, it is wild how quickly the past two years have flown by.

We went snorkeling twice and enjoyed playing with hundreds of colorful fish. We did one excursion to Dunn's River Falls where we got to hike up a waterfall. It was a pretty neat experience except for the gigantic spiderwebs that I noticed in the trees above the waterfall....complete with giant spiders. Yick!
It was a much needed chance to relax and reconnect without any stresses of everyday life. See, I feel relaxed just writing about it. Oh Jamaica I miss you!


Homebaked Bread

Ooops, I forgot to blog. For over a month. My bad....
In my defense it has been a very busy month. Chris came home and life went back to being gloriously normal.
I baked fresh loaves of whole wheat bread. I made him yummy sandwiches of eggplant, pesto, roasted red pepper and spinach when he came home from work for lunch.
I kicked his butt at Risk. Actually, I kick Chris' butt at most games, which I am sure he would never admit. It makes him quite pouty sometimes...
Chris taught me how to change the oil in both of the Jeeps. I did really well and impressed myself. It is dirty work but I make it look cute.
We drove to Colorado...yes, I drove there AGAIN. Family was so happy to see Chris after his deployment so that was lovely.
I got to do an impromptu photo shoot with my lil' sister so she can redo her blog before leaving for Spain to teach English for a whole year. I will miss her ever so much but I am glad she is heading off to have many grand adventures!
Oh, yeah... Chris and I went to Jamaica for our two year anniversary!! I shall share a whole post of pictures from that glorious vacation on another day. For now, I am alive, I am doing well and I promise to blog more!
