Honeymoon Recap, Part 6: My 24th Birthday

7 Aug

On Sunday, July 22, I turned 24-years-old…and I just happened to be in Hawaii (which I did not take for granted — I’m sure that was a once in a lifetime thing!). I woke up to a birthday card on the comforter, courtesy of my new husband. I heard him rustling around before I got up, and sure enough, he was filling out my card :). He told me that I could choose what we did that day, so the first thing that we did was go to breakfast. We upgraded to the all you can eat breakfast buffet, and I ate plenty. I’m not normally a juice drinker, but that guava juice (the pink stuff) was so good!

After breakfast, we went to the gym for a run. He doesn’t enjoy working out as much as I do, but he enjoyed the treadmill TVs and didn’t complain at all :)! After a good run, we hung out by the pool for a while, before going to the spa! Jordan booked a couples’ massage, a new experience for both of us.

Before the massage, we each hung out in separate locker rooms. I sat in the hot tub and steam room for a little while, and then we were off to another room for our massages. Honestly, I wasn’t too thrilled with my masseuse. I was sore from my run and I wish that she would’ve used more pressure, but I’m guessing she was gentle since I told her that it was my first massage. That hour just flew by, and after filling up on some chocolate covered macadamia nuts and fruit-infused water (lunch of champions), we were back to hanging out at the pool before dinner.

That night, we went out for a sushi dinner and Haagen-Daz ice cream.

It was the perfect ending to my birthday! And it’s okay that I didn’t have a cake, I celebrated with my family the weekend after we got back from vacation, and got to make a wish then :).

I only have one honeymoon recap left, so if you’re getting sick of them, the end is near :). Have a great Tuesday!

How did you/will celebrate your birthday this year?

    I’ve never tried guava juice but it sounds delicious…my birthday was in May, and though I had a great day I didn’t get any cake! I told my husband he really needs to make sure that never happens again 🙂

    Happy (belated) Birthday!! 🙂 I’m not sure what we’ll do for my birthday this year (it’s in a month from today!). Hopefully we’ll at least go out to a nice dinner! I pretty much always want to go out to eat for my birthday!

      Thank you! I was afraid that I’d bore everyone, but I did want to write them for us, so we’d have something to look back on years from now!
