Jeff and I had an amazing time on our babymoon. We went to Kauai for 5 days where we stayed at the Marriott Resort. It was exactly what we needed as Jeff had been dealing with some unusually stressful work stuff and with the kitchen demo going on things were a bit chaotic at home. The trip started off just right with an upgrade to first class and we were very happy with the resort and all of its amenities once we arrived.
While the weather wasn't great (lightening, thunder and down pours) we were still able to get in a few days of relaxing by the pool and beach.
I especially enjoyed lying on a raft on my belly in the pool. It has been way too many months since I've been able to lie on my tummy so I was in heaven! We spent the mornings going to the gym earning the right to indulge ourselves at the breakfast buffet. Afternoons were spent hoping to get some sunshine or on my quests to find malasadas and authentic Hawaiian food. I am happy to say that we found some pretty delicious malasadas although compared to Leonard's on Oahu they were just okay. I also got my fill of poi, lomi salmon, chicken long rice, lau lau and kahlua pork. I'm so lucky that Jeff has also acquired a taste for good Hawaiian food! We even brought back a 3lb bag (much to Jeff's dismay) of poi to freeze for BBD as this is a traditional first food for Hawaiian babies.
Besides eating we spent one afternoon renting paddle boards and another exploring some other parts of the island.
Between the relaxing, spurts of sunshine and eating it was a great trip. We were able to spend some quality time together and to finally come up with a name for BBD! Sorry though, we're keeping this one a secret until he arrives!

  1. It was so wonderful to see you today and your precious belly! Good luck with the next month . . . It does not look like you need any guidance once the baby come. I am so happy for you two :)
