I Got Luxed Up
After the fabulous wedding of Kellie and Colin, I was told by Captain America that I needed to get my passport and bikini and get ready to leave. Together with my awesome best gal pal, Precious, Captain America planned a brief runaway trip for us that was sorely needed (zip it, Saun). While working with the FabSquad, I got a text message that said, “Trip paid for. 24 through 29”. While eating dinner, I was telling Abby and Streater that I had absolutely NO idea where my passport was. I remembered using it to vote in the GA primary since I still hold an out of state license….then I remembered putting it somewhere that I felt like it wasn’t such a good idea to put it, but more accessible than the safe.
As the night went on, I got another text message from Captain America who said that he was there early to pick me up. He was such a sweetheart! He helped my superstar florist Heidi and her staff load their trucks, met my soul mentor, Scarlett, and helped the FabSquad load up some of the random things into the truck. I asked, casually if he had seen my passport and he said no. And then mentioned that we were leaving the NEXT day, not the Monday after. My heart fell into my swollen feet, because I thought I would have a chance to look for it all day Sunday.
So after I crawled in the house at 1 a.m. on Saturday night, feet feeling like they were thisclose to exploding, I tore my house to shreds looking for my passport. I went into our closet sat on the floor and PRAYED a very long and detailed prayer. Got up and looked in my husband’s valet, at random, and there it was. God is so good.
After counting and packing linens (truly, a family effort), I packed my suitcase, kissed my kids goodbye and got set off for a very very very very overdue vacation. Instead of leaving for the airport, I was treated to a day of shopping, mani and pedi, and dinner. It wasn’t until the manicure that it hit me…”We’re not leaving today…” He was sweet enough to give me a day off before traveling.
Finally, I found out at the airport that we were going to Jamaica….once we got to Jamaica, I found out were going to Couples Negril. This was our third trip to Jamaica, a country I absolutely adore and love. I love the people of Jamaica because they pull no punches and are some of the most sincere and lovable people you could come across. We didn’t get in until late Monday night, and had to leave at 4 o’clock Saturday morning from Jamaica, with an 8 hour layover in Miami, but every single microsecond was cherished and enjoyed. I fell in love all over again with my husband, and am so grateful that God put him in my life if for no other reason than to just speak his name or look into his eyes.
Here we are at the Aura Night Club about 40 min after we got there. Doesn’t take much to get the party started!
Some random person dancing at the club, who was quite inebriated at the time (hence the focus) took this.
Views from our balcony
The most important view– the swimup bar
I spent a lot of my mornings waking up early (by habit) and sitting on the balcony looking at the gorgeous views, listening to music, or doing logic puzzles (I’m a geek!). It was my first time to this side of the island and it was beautiful. I also snuck some shots of Captain America while he was sleeping…
Wanted to get a shot of his ring and hand
Enjoying dinner at the Palms…the had the best amuse bouche!
Green Tea Creme Brulee– I am in love with all things green tea and all things creme brulee; however, this monstrosity should be illegal. 😯 Just yuck. Beautiful presentation though– it was set in a hollowed coconut shell.
Being silly with the camera:
Back to the Aura for dancing…
Or not so much…more like lounging.
Look! It’s my logo!
My hot hot pink shoes!
Of course I got to see several beach weddings!
We had some great times until it was time to leave! Here we are in the Admiral Club at Miami’s airport during our layover….
I cannot WAIT to go again!!!
SO MUCH thanks to my awesome staff who held the fort down while I was away!
So…back to work!
Welcome back, dahling! You were missed! 🙂

Dude, if this trip (which is all together lovely and I am still NOT in the least bit jealous, especially now after seeing clear blue water pics) means that you are no longer going to NY, then I am going to be very sad. I need drinks with my twin. Like right this second.
Melissa at MasterPiece Weddings
Love the photographs! Looks simply heavenly! I am a bit sad that Green Tea Creme Brulee wasn’t drop dead amazing… those are two of my favorite things, and for it to be yuck is disappointing… But thanks for sharing those awe inspiring photographs!
Isn’t funny how we (as event consultants) always spy weddings or events while we are away… 😕
It looks like you had so much fun! Good to see you’re blogging again, I missed your posts!
Glad you had a great time and welcome back!
She’s back!!! 😀
I am LONG… very long… (Did I say Long?) overdue for my Terrica fix!
I’m glad you had that fall in love QT.
Gosh, it would have been so hard for me to come back. Nice pics. I’m glad you guys got the chance to get away and fall in love all over again. That’s the best feeling!

Okay. Where are the pictures of you in a bikini!!! haha, just kidding girlfriend, that wouldn’t make the cut either.
You two are adorable to the power of 200. His pretty blue eyes and your smokey hazel eyes….gosh your kids are gonna be knock outs when they get older!!! (if they aren’t already).

What a fantastic trip! Captain America’s done it again!

SO fun to see pics of you and your Captain America together. Love it! 😉
LOL, I was wondering why you didn’t tell me you were going out of the country, but I see now that it was a surprise! So stinkin’ cute! It was so some awesome to finally meet Captain America at the end of the night! Funny too how he told me to say hello to my “husband,” and two days later was when I started talking to Curtis. Maybe your husband was sending some kind of premonition or something from God. 🙂 So glad you enjoyed your vay cay, funny too, I had dinner at that resort when I was working in Jamaica two months ago!
Terrica! you are so cute! Loved the pink shoes by the way 😉 I just wanted to stop by and say hello! It was so great meeting you! You were great and everything went so incredibly smooth at Kelly and Colins wedding, I was definitely impressed 🙂
Try putting your passport with all the other important papers in the security box. 🙄 Geez.
Glad you had a great time!

There is noticeably a bundle to understand about this. I suppose you have made certain nice points in functions also.
