    A Honeymoon in Jamaica | Sandals Resort on Oh Lovely Day

    Back in April (has it already been over 7 months!?) I was hosted by Sandals Resorts in Jamaica for a little getaway to see what a wedding or honeymoon in Jamaica could be like. To be honest, I had never considered Sandals Resort for a vacation and had never been to Jamaica either. I was beyond pleasantly surprised with how wonderful it was, and have been wanting to take my little family back (to the Beaches version – kiddos allowed!) ever since. It was the most luxurious and pampered I have ever felt. So I wanted to share a bit of my trip with you since many of you are probably planning your honeymoons and destination weddings right now. I highly recommend the experience.

    Can’t you just picture having a destination wedding here? So gorgeous.

    This was my private butler suite. One side was my living quarters with a really lovely bedroom and bathroom bigger than my living room at home, and the other side was a living room and mini-kitchen. Oh, and the pool and jacuzzi was in between. All for little old me!

    We took a really leisurely river rafting excursion (that’s Karr, our boat captain) and all had mini-mock weddings to see what Sandals had to offer in terms of hosting your wedding. They all turned out beautifully.

    The thing I loved most about Sandals was my butler suite and amazing butlers! There were always fun little surprises waiting for me, like a hot drawn bath (how many times have you stayed somewhere with an amazing tub and you never once used it? Happens to me all the time. But when the bath is waiting for you, it is hard to turn down!) and cute little towel animals. And when the food, drinks, and fun is all-inclusive you can just relax and enjoy every second of your honeymoon without thinking about how much you’re spending once you’re there. Jamaica’s gorgeous beaches and it’s relaxed way of life make for one fabulous vacation. I could not have asked for more (except that my husband wasn’t with me – next time!)

    Are you thinking of an all-inclusive like Sandals or a Jamaican destination for your wedding or honeymoon?

    •  Happy 4 months my chubby bunny! It's crazy to think that 8 years ago today your pops asked me to marry him and now here you are already 4 months old. You are happy and smiling 90% of the time and still screamy 10% of the time. Much better, but your unpredictable screaminess still pops up at the times when I'm trying to get out of the house or eat, usually both at once. I can take a hint. You are 17 lbs and almost 26 inches - putting you in the 90th % for height and 80th for weight. Oh, and your head is in the 94th % - which I'm fine with since it was a nice slightly below average size when you were born. You are hilariously huge  Your daddy says if you keep growing like this people are going to start calling you Hodor You have rolled from belly to back a few times (a small miracle given your size and how little floor time you've been able to have due to your reflux), scoot yourself with your feet when laying on your back, have reached for and grabbed a toy, and are a chatterbox. You like music, like being held in sitting and standing positions, and really wanna eat your hands. You are a champion napper -- usually taking a 2-3 hr one in the morning and a good afternoon one as well. I can even put you down without soothing you to sleep first and you fall asleep on your own - something that your brothers didn't do until at least 6 months old. You're sleeping from around 7:30 pm - 7 am, waking around 3:30 for a snack (you're totally not hungry either, you just miss me). You're just the cutest with your fat rolls and cheek dimps and duck fluff hair and big gummy smiles and you have everyone of us completely smitten.  #quincysmonthbymonth  We didn't remember to take his 4 month photos today (we'll just pretend the 26th is tomorrow ) but we did manage a photo for #rednoseday. Don't forget to donate! @rednosedayusa ❣#doitforthekids
       Temporary post: I'm looking for the cutest non tacky apparel for moms and littles for 4th of July themed blog post. If you have something super cute and available online, shoot me an email to chandra@ohlovelyday.com with subject line "July 4th apparel" and a photo (flat lay preferable but on model ok) at least 600 pixels wide, price, and link to item. I'll choose a variety of my favorite 15 and will email you if yours was chosen. And tag a shop if you have seen something cute that I should check out. TIA (these cute swim shorts are by @trendybubs btw )  Talking about embracing our postpartum bodies on the blog today with photos from my shoot with @sollybabywrap when I was 10 days postpartum. Let's start a movement of embracing our real postpartum mom bods - haven't we earned it after pregnancy, labor, delivery, sleep deprivation, nursing, and everything else we put our bodies through? Head to the blog to read my thoughts on the subject - link in profile or ohlovelyday.com.
