I am sad to report that we will not be going to Ireland for our honeymoon. We simply cannot afford it, and I want to be done stressing about ways we could make it possible. Big T has suggested we just take a honeymoon in the states and save for a trip to Ireland, and I have succumbed to agreeing with him. I have not given up hope on Ireland, but I understand it is unrealistic for six months from now.

Now that we have to find another place to take a honeymoon, we have no idea where we want to go. We want to see some place we have never seen before, somewhere we will remember, somewhere we will relax and enjoy each other's company. I want to see some theater, real theater as opposed to local theater. Neither of us are interested in Hawaii or Florida. We are too pale...uh...fair skinned for that. Even with sun screen we burn, and I really don't enjoy super hot weather. I watched the movie Strangers (stupidly), so cabins, anywhere in the mountains, forest, or country are out of the question. He hasn't really expressed anything he has to see, but we have a expanse from California to New York to decide from. I think our biggest priorities are to have fun, see new things (explore new areas), and relax as well as being able to just enjoy each other's company.

Where did you all go on your honeymoons? We are a young couple looking to have an experience of a lifetime and have fun. Any suggestions?

P.S. I did some spring cleaning this weekend, and I will be posting a blog later on today with before and after pictures. Who needs a television show to come in and wipe your house clear of all the junk when you can take your own pictures and post a blog to the world about it?! ha ha


  1. Now, you have to decide if you want quaint or big city? If you don't mind being robbed, and I know it is probably too close to home, but there is always great theatre in Chicago! You could always go to the Big Apple? You could go to a great little B&B around some sort of historic site, if that interests you? There's always Vegas, but??? I don't know if you would have any interest in that? I don't think I would?

    I meant to start out with this...

    I am sorry that you are sad.

    And, then I was going to end with all that other stuff, but I got too caught up in thinking about going somewhere neat!

  2. Oooooooooooooh, what about Napa Valley CA? I don't know specifics about grape growing, but you could go and stay in a B&B and possibly go to a vineyard and pick grapes? Man, that sounds soooooo romantic?! There is also Martha's Vineyard, but, again, I don't know much about it. It would be something to look into!

  3. We didn't have one. Bleh. But I totally think you should go to Utah! No ulterior motive at all. We have mountains and bears (oh wait, that wasn't what you wanted). Err... there are decent sized cities that sometimes have shows. I've been to them! There's a ballet company, even! Ummmm... it will be warm in 6 months. AND! I know some awesomely cool people there too! But I don't suppose that's really romantic.

    Really, I'd LOVE to go to NYC. I also want to take another trip to SF California.
