Our Jamaican Vacation & A Giveaway!

I've been meaning to share about our trip to Jamaica for the last couple of weeks, but I wanted a bit of time to soak it all in first.

We stayed in Montego Bay Jamaica, at the Sandals Royal Caribbean and had a great time!

Welcome to Jamaica Man!
 When we arrived we had a couple hours until check in, so we sat and had lunch on the beach.

Going from rainy cold Montana to warm and humid Jamaica seemed like a slice of Heaven.

After lunch we grabbed a cocktail and walked along the beach.

 This swing... I can't believe more people didn't use it.  They were available almost every time we walked by.

A gorgeous view from the buffet style restaurant.  This was such a quick and easy place to stop in and grab breakfast or lunch.  And with a view like this you don't feel like you are missing out on anything.


I am a sucker for a beautiful sunset.  Isn't it crazy that after years and years, they are still just as gorgeous as the first time you noticed one.

This guy right here... I just love him!

I got in a lot of reading on this trip and I can't wait to tell you all about them.

Our resort was the perfect size.  Not too big or too small.

These two pools were right outside our room.  One to the right and the other to the left.  They were never busy, as these were the quieter pools.

Out on the little island, they have this wonderful Thai restaurant.  It was such a fun evening.  My favorite thing on vacation besides the amazing weather and location, is time alone with this guy.  It's so hard to fit in time for each other with the business, kids and life.

This was the view from the restaurant on the last night.  We took the shuttle over to one of the other Sandals resorts.  The food wasn't my favorite at the Italian restaurant, but you couldn't beat this view!  Gorgeous!

We were up the next morning by 4:00am to catch our flight home.

On our last night in Jamaica, I came across a couple who were selling jewelry.  I thought it would be fun to bring back a little gift for one of you.  Be sure and enter my little giveaway if you'd like to win a fun pair of earrings.
