Those who know me well know I change my mind, alot. Originally I agreed to Jonathan planning the honeymoon as a surprise. He's never really been able to pull of a surprise so I thought this would be fun! (Not that he's not sweet and thoughtful, because he totally is...but he just gets so excited he can't hold onto anything or keep anything secret long enough for it to be a surprise- it's ridiculously cute!) It was stressin' him out having to make such a big decision alone and nothing was getting done, so I changed my mind. :) I started to help. Hawaii is one of my very favorite places I've been, so I was thinking maybe there, but changed my mind. I can't handle that long of a flight. Plus, everything is way overpriced in Hawaii. Then we decided on a bungalow over the water somewhere, maybe Fiji?...but I changed my mind again. Who seriously wants to spend half of your honeymoon on the airplane? FINALLY after talking to my friend Katie & hearing so many great things about St. Lucia from everyone, we decided on that. No changing our minds!!! Until....yea, I changed my mind again. Well, maybe.
One of Jonathan's best friends, Keene, & his wife Jen recommended an awesome travel agent they used for their recent wedding & honeymoon. This lady knows her stuff! After talking to her we were debating between St. Lucia, Antigua, Jamaica, & Great Exuma (Bahamas). Jonathan researched for hours and hours- whereas you know me, I was ready to just "pick something." I mean honestly, any honeymoon vacation at an all-inclusive resort somewhere in the Caribbean with the man of my dreams will be awesome, right? Apparently since The Bachelor was filmed in St. Lucia it's the new "honeymoon hotspot" and the prices have shot up because of the growing popularity of this destination. We decided we can get more for our money at another resort. So, after all of Jonathan's research & the help of the fabulous travel agent, we decided on.....drumroll please....
GREAT EXUMA, Bahamas!!!!!!
(FOR REAL, NO changing my mind! Already booked it!)
