Babymoon - 26 Weeks

Pin It!

Brandon and I had the opportunity to go to St. Thomas last year for our one year anniversary, and for those of you that follow me on Instagram know, we were fortunate enough to have the opportunity to spend our 2nd anniversary there this October as well! The only difference is that this year, the trip served as our babymoon as well. Here are some pictures from our trip. 
A lot of rum punch was had - just not by me!
We took the ferry over to St. John and drove around the island discovering different gems. We went to Trunk Bay to snorkel, and later discovered an amazing restaurant with the most AMAZING view. Brandon enjoyed a few "dirty monkeys".

On our actual anniversary, Brandon and I spent the day driving around St. Thomas. We discovered Hull Bay where we did more laying in the sand and floating in the warm Caribbean water!

Cheers to two years!
One of my favorites days was going island hopping by boat :-) We had a captain take us from island to island. Brandon researched and found a catamaran which is SUCH a smooth ride for a pregnant woman. Even in choppy waters, it glided smoothly over the swell. We went back to White Bay - the MOST gorgeous beach in the world which is on Jost Van Dyke Island, and home to our favorite spot - the Soggy Dollar Bar. We had lunch at Myett's on Tortola Island.
I got so many compliments on my starfish cuff by The Oxford Trunk!
This trip was exactly what I needed. To get away from work, and school and spend eight days floating in the ocean was incredible for my body! It was the first week in awhile that my back hasn't hurt. But let me tell you, CANKLES have arrived! My feet and ankles are so fat! The humid weather definitely didn't help.

I have a couple more weeks of school and then hopefully I'll be back to blogging more regularly!
