jamaican me happy: day 1

wednesday morning, we dropped off the girls at lola and pawpaw's house where mamaw was also there waiting to help out during the week while they worked. the girls were so excited to spend the night and have lots of fun with their grandparents. from there, jay and i drove to atlanta to catch our flight to montego bay, jamaica where we celebrated our 7th wedding anniversary as a "mom and dad only" trip. during the flight, we sat beside kelly cutrone. if you don't know who she is, please google her...this is as close as it got as far as me meeting someone "famous." apparently, America's Next Top Model was filming in jamaica during the time we would be out there. i was slightly intimidated at first, but she was really nice and friendly...
the next array of pics have been condensed to fit into smaller ones that make up a collage. i tend to get camera happy at beautiful sights so forgive me. we stayed at Iberostar Grand Rose Hall resort in Montego Bay and the place was absolutely amazing. from the little to the big things, these guys knew how to do it right. upon arriving, we were met with mimosas, given a tour, made dinner reservations for each night as well as booked a day of excursions for later in the week, got settled in, gasped over our view and the fun swing that was on our balcony, and then headed to the beautiful pools outside. here are some pics...
by the end of the night, jay and i enjoyed laying down on one of the big beds beside the pool as we drank our fruity cocktails, laughed, and gazed up at the stars. it was so nice. i'm not kidding when i say we did this every single night before making our way back up to our room.
