FH and I actually had the weekend off together. This NEVER happens!! It was sooo nice, until he h...
Most of you girls know from previous posts that our original Honeymoon got canceled by Sandals. I was very upset! I was looking forward to my Honeymoon, probably more so then the entire wedding! But with our guest list rising and wedding costs adding up we just couldn't find the funds to go.
It ended up working out for the best I guess, we have so much going on right now getting caught back up with everything we neglected to get married, the wedding was taking up SO much of my time. We are also doing our annual family vacation with our son, my brother and his kids and that was more important to me then going on a Honeymoon right away.
We were planning to go on our Honeymoon in September, but have decided that now we will have to put it off until March or April of next year.. I'm a little worried it will take away the thrill of going on a Honeymoon but I've decided it should still be relaxing for us to get away and spend time together regardless. and because we're holding off, we can afford some extras and also a room upgrade. and also it' isn't during Hurricane season!
The GOOD NEWS IS!... WE BOUGHT A HOUSE! We settle on Aug. 25th! I'm so excited, it's a house located in the town where I grew up, great schools, huge yard and its a fixer upper which is what my Husband and I wanted, something we could totally renovate and make money on. The housing market SUCKS right now and all these huge homes are sitting empty (at least here in MD they are!) We are paying for the house in CASH, which is the best benefit of all to me! We decided we could use the money we would spend on a Honeymoon for renovations. Our first smart adult decision ;-)
I'm really excited about it! We hope to move into it by January, I plan to try to have another baby when we get back from our Honeymoon next Spring.. more updates on that later! Did any of you other already married ladies hold off on the Honeymoon? Did it take away the thrill of BEING on a Honeymoon?
