Honeymoon Destination Revealed

My guess is that about 99 percent of you are going to scroll right past this lunch post to get right to the honeymoon decision, so let’s make all the food chatter nice ‘n’ quick!

Leftovers made lunch assembly awfully easy.

I made myself a buffalo chicken sandwich using the leftover meat from Tuesday night’s dinner.

Pulled Buffalo Chicken Sandwich

On the side I enjoyed fresh strawberries and sliced radishes marinated in Italian dressing.


Italian Marinated Radishes

The Italian dressing helped take some of the spiciness away from the radishes, but they’re still a little too intense for me. I like them better in salads than on their own fo’ sho’.

Sandwiches Make Me Happy. Seriously. Any Sandwich.

The Spread

Good news: The buffalo chicken was just as tasty a couple of days later.

Thanks to the three of you who read my food mumbo-jumbo. Now onto the honeymoon fun! 😀

Honeymoon Destination Revealed

After months and months of research, planning and talking to everyone we know about travel recommendations, Ryan and I finally selected our honeymoon destination.

We considered a lot of different options ranging from the Dominican Republic to Costa Rica to Hawaii. (Well, maybe I just considered Hawaii. 😉 )

In the end, we decided to go to St. Lucia!

St. Lucia

Thank you so, so much to all of you for your comments, recommendations and emails. Both Ryan and I read every single one and, for a while there, felt like we were on a wild goose chase, visiting all the places you mentioned and weighing our options.

We selected St. Lucia because it met our requirements:

  • Caribbean location
  • Beautiful beach
  • Adventurous activities

While in St. Lucia, Ryan and I hope to relax on the gorgeous beaches, but also enjoy some fun activities. On our possible to-do list:

  • Scuba diving
  • Jungle biking
  • Zip lining
  • Rainforest hike

One thing we will not be doing? Deep sea fishing… We definitely do not want to revisit our sea sick ways on our honeymoon.

Question of the Afternoon

  • In your opinion, what is the perfect length of time for a honeymoon?

Ryan and I plan to stay in St. Lucia for a week (six nights).
