Our Babymoon Recap

This past weekend Gable and I went on our Babymoon. The original plan was… Gable told me to dress comfy for walking/ sightseeing, and pack us a beach bag. He was taking me to Gasparilla Island during the day to do some exploring. I was so excited to go to a new place that either of us has never been to. Then he told me in the car that after we are bored with Gasparilla Island, then we were going to St. Armond’s Circle to do some shopping, visit the place that we got engaged, lay out at the beach, have a romantic dinner then head home and rent a movie. But Tropical Storm Debby changed our plans… I didn’t care at all. I had Gable all to myself; you would have thought I was a 5 year old going to Disney.


Our bags are packed and ready for the adventure of the day!
 Gasparilla Island took us about two hours to get there. Thankfully we are going back in October for a wedding and will be able to explore the Island a little more and swim in the crystal clear waters. When we arrived to the adorable town it was raining. Gable found us a great resturaunt to eat at and then we did some window shopping. The stores were a bit out of our price range (kids belts for $95) so we didn't really care to shop that long.



 This is the resturaunt that we ate at. It use to be an old train station, and it had some great sea food. I think it was called the Loose Caboose.

After spending sometime in Gasparilla Island we wanted to go to St. Armond's Circle. I could not wait to see the place where Gable and I got engaged. It had been over 6 years since we had been back. But before we made it to our location Gable noticed a Tervis Tumbler store (every southern girls best friend) and then asked me if we wanted to stop and see it. This is not really like him to make a random stop, we usually just reach the destination and don't explore. I couldn't tell if I was more excited to see the store or go off plan :).

The store was my heaven, and they had some great deals that we couldn't pass up. We got a birthday gift purchased and some Christmas gifts (yes I said Christmas... you can never start to early).

When we finally arrived to St. Armonds we did some shopping, got Ice Cream and my favorite Orange chocolate. Then we drove down to the spot that Gable asked me to be his wife. How he proposed is kind of a funny story... or at least to us. But on this board walk they have ZERO street lights, it was pitch black so when he asked me to marry him I thought he was joking (couldn't see the ring!). Well all of these years he swears a light post was around... he was wrong.
 It is crazy to think that a little over 6 years ago we were standing here and he asked me to be his wife. God is so good and we are more blessed than I could have ever imagined!


After exploring for awhile I was noticeable starting to drag a bit. We called it night and started heading back home. Before we made it home we picked up takeout and a movie. It was the perfect night to end the perfect day. I think Gable was upset the day didn't turn out as planned, but I had so much fun. Exploring a new place with my hubby, revisiting one of my favorite places ever and just spending the entire day with no interruptions. Perfect... just perfect!

On Sunday is was planned to be day two of the Babymoon. We were going to go shopping, then dinner to at Bella's. That is the place he took me on our One year Anniversary. But thanks for Debby we were stuck at home!!!! Our houses in the neighborhood are high enough but the streets were all flooded. The best part was we littaraly had nothing great to eat.  
 That is our dock, the seawall disappeared for three days.
 I found brownie mix in our pantry, then we shamefully put a hurting on it.
 Then to occupy our time a litte more we place the Dance game on our Kinect (I think that is what it is called)
 I was playing until my Cankle's started hurting. One of the many joys about being pregnant!!!
 I was clearly sad that I had to stop playing.

That night we watched some TV and then headed to bed a little early. We definatly did not have the conventional Babymoon but it worked perfectly for us. Now we are just going to have to wait for our little guy to arrive! I can't wait to meet this miriacle we are going to be calling our son!

PS... I love you HUBBY!!!!
