Foxy's Domestic Side {Guest Post}

Hello The Mishaps and Mayhem of a Solitary Life readers! Sarah from Foxy's Domestic Side here. I'm filling in for Katie while she's off gallivanting and having fun. I figured that since she was on vacation I would tell you about my favorite vacation.

I find that each vacation is my favorite for different reasons. Driving up and down the East Coast, Traveling Europe, Camping trips, but hands down my favorite vacation of all time was our Honeymoon. Mr. surprised me with our honeymoon, it was almost 3 weeks of the best vacation ever!
We didn't live together before we got married, so this was the first time that we were together 24/7 for an extended amount of time, our honeymoon was 18 days, and that's 16 more days together then we had ever previously done. And guess what, we didn't fight once and we were excited and wanted to spend even more time together after we got back. Match made in heaven right?

We flew into Tahiti and actually stayed in a hotel for about 8 hours before leaving to catch our plane to Moorea.

The next day we caught our plane to Moorea (about a 45 minute trip)...and yep that's our boarding pass, it's laminated and reusable...

The lobby at the Pearl Resort in Moorea

The pool area at this hotel, I happen to take the picture when they were doing water aerobics.

Yep that's the pool and then the ocean, cool right?
They decorated the place for us. Every night we got a new flower decoration.

We did a lot of snorkeling.

We took a day trip to swim with sting rays, sharks and turtles...
The reason I'm always wearing shirts in the pictures is because I am allergic to SPF, so I try to cover up when I can

Yep we actually took this picture, they set out a set of buoys with some rope between them, and then told the sharks to stay on that side of the rope...not even joking. I figured I could swim faster then the lady over there, so I was okay.

We took a bike ride and found the coolest ice cream cone. Double scoop...but it's side by side, crazy right? But totally makes sense if you ask me.

Onto the next part of the trip, Bora Bora!

Another plane, but this time it's a bigger plane, phew. It was about a 3 hour plane trip.

Bora Bora is made up of lots of little islands, the airport is on it's own island and then each hotel has it's own island too, so you take a boat everywhere. We stayed at another Pearl Resort.

The Lobby

We did a lot of laying out and reading...

We switched rooms after a few days to an over the water hut.

Outside the back door

Kayaking just outside of our hut...we went out to where the waves were breaking. This was on our way back, I wish we had gotten some pictures of where we went, it was pretty cool to see people surfing in what seemed like the middle of the ocean.

We went on a horseback riding tour, the owner, Olevia, gave us a great tour of Bora Bora too. Since our hotel was exactly on the opposite side of where we were going, he took us one way there, and the other way to complete the circle home. It was great.

That's where we were staying behind us

We did a lot of this too

We each had our own bucket of ice to put our drinks when we weren't drinking them, since it was so hot, our drinks would warm up in 2 seconds if we didn't

We figured we were on our honeymoon, let's take a helicopter ride too.

Not our hotel, this is the Four Seasons they were building and was to open, I think later that year
Back on another plane and back to the very first hotel we stayed at in Tahiti for 8 hours. This time we stayed for 3 days. The view from the lobby.

We went to this restaurant, and it was a super scary drive, but the view was worth it, too bad I didn't get a picture, darn.

Everyday they had feeding the sting rays, of course we're going to do that.

We also took surf lessons, super hard! I can't find the picture, and not even sure if we took one, boo!

If you want more pictures of the horseback riding, pictures of the inside of our rooms we stayed in, click here.

That is my favorite vacation hands down, but now that the kids are getting older I'm excited to see what adventures lay ahead.

So what is your favorite vacation?

Thanks Katie for having me! I hope you are having a fabulous time!
