“March Madness”

Hey guys! I have missed you. March was a crazy month, so in the next couple of weeks I will be playing catch-up on my blog to show you my version of “March Madness” which has nothing to do with sports.

First! BABY-MOON!

For those of you who do not know what a Baby-Moon is, a Baby-Moon is a romantic vacation that a couple takes before the baby is born. So at 31 weeks pregnant, my husband and I flew to St. Kitts in the Caribbean. We chose this beautiful Caribbean location because one of my closes friends was marrying her soul mate there that weekend and I was one of her bridesmaids (or to be politically correct, brides-woman). Below are some photos of the Baby-Moon and a couple of photos of the beautiful bride and groom. And yes I need a new camera!!!

The Resort:

Dancing at the wedding bond fire party one of the many fun wedding activities (Wedding Activities included: Welcome drinks, bond fire party, hiking a volcano, round the island tour, sunset cruise):

Roti one of my favorite West Indian dishes:

I only had the nerve to wear this when most of the wedding guest went on hike:

Now on to the wedding, it was a beautiful morning ceremony but the Bride and Groom has asked for us not to post pictures of the ceremony.

Bride and Groom’s first dance:

Bride and Groom’s table, those gold streamers are actually 1000 gold origami cranes and the guest souvenirs. My girlfriend is so creative! :

Yummy lobster and eggs for my main course:

Finally Me and MT! (Instead of flowers the Brides-women had parasols) :

These photos do not do our Baby-Moon justice but I had to share.


P.S. I learned that pregnant women are still allowed to take an international flight at 31 weeks! That said, do not expect to be comfortable or for anyone to be nice to you, but knowing all of that, I would definitely do it all again in a heartbeat because we had an AMAZING time!

  1. You look awesome in your bikini!!

    I wouldn't expect to be comfortable travelling but don't expect people to be nice to you?! Were other travelers rude or just not overly nice?

    1. Thank you, I was glad to get away too. It was one of those things you have no idea how much you need until you get it.

  8. This entire post was a pleasure to read but I had to leave a comment about your bikini pic! Even though I'm a wedding junkie, I LOVE that pic most of all those in this post b/c of the style, guts, pride and fierceness it represents. What a great pic to show your baby girl when she gets older.
