Honeymoon is Booked! AKA Out of the Office for 3 Weeks!

may-17-24-08-honeymoon-maldives-beach-sand-sun-island-456 I’m pleased to announce that we have officially booked our honeymoon!

After MANY hours in front of the computer scanning resort Websites and freaking out over TripAdvisor reviews (word to the wise: take those reviews with a grain of salt), we made our decision.  When I checked that sucker off the to-do list, I felt free!

Booking the honeymoon was definitely the most difficult (and the most expensive) decision so far in our wedding planning process.  But I can almost guarantee you that it will be the most fun part of the wedding!  Ahhhh, three weeks away from work, no worries except for which drink to order next or which dress to wear that night, and, most of all, enjoying it all with my hubs!

The Deets:

  • all-inclusive resort
  • 12 nights/13 days (!!)
  • secluded, away from city life
  • Mexico!
  • I feel a little weird listing the resort on my blog, so if you really want to know, shoot me an e-mail!

I cannot wait to spend almost 2 weeks relaxing as a newlywed.  And that’s ALL we plan to do: relax.  There will be plenty of eating, drinking, sunbathing, and walking along the beach.  I’m sure we’ll throw in running and Yoga for good measure (and also so we don’t go nuts).

I’m not sure what I’m going to do about the old bloggie and freelance work while I’m away.  I’ll probably write a few scheduled posts and also ask for guest posts!  More on that when the time comes of course…

  1. If you’re anywhere close by, I definitely recommend checking out Xel-ha and a trip to Coba. We bought our tickets for both at the resort we stayed at.

  2. That sounds like a great honeymoon. Good luck with your traveling.

  3. It sounds like you’ve found a great spot. it would be pretty nice to have 13 days off, but I’m just not there yet. I’m trying to go out of the country sometime next summer hopefully.
    Enjoy your honeymoon!

  4. YOU BOOKED IT!!!! Yay!!! And you’re going for 12 nights?? Man, I’m starting to rethink our six-night stay… I’m so excited for you guys and cannot wait to tell you ALL the details when we get back. :) YAY!!!

  5. Aaaahhh, that sounds so relaxing. I’m jealous!

  6. I’ll be heading to Bora Bora when I get married. Whenever that is.

  7. 12 nights and 13 days! That is an awesome amount of time for a honeymoon! Congrats!

  8. Wow sounds like a fantastic trip! The Wife and I did Greece 2 years ago when we got married.

  9. Hi Amber! First time here, I am loving your posts so far. Especially the other post about how you found yourself as you got out of debt. I’m in the same position and seriously you’re right, the way of being a minimalist and getting to know yourself is what happened to me too. It’s hard sometimes since it was so recent that I stopped my crazy mindless shopping habit, but staying obsessive with being frugal has helped a lot. I’m going to link your blog! Btw you’re gorgeous!

  10. Where in Mexico? Congrats!

  11. We honeymooned in Santa Monica, Calif. It was wonderful, but I wish we had two weeks like you, instead of one!!!
