My husband and I went on a "babymoon" this weekend. I really like using the term "babymoon" so I've been saying it an obnoxious amount of times. I guess it's like a honeymoon part two or a pre-baby getaway. I wasn't comfortable going too far from my doctors so we went an hour away and stayed from Saturday-Monday (today) at the beautiful Jupiter Beach Resort.

Fun Fact: We initially looked at the Jupiter Beach Resort as a wedding venue but my husband hated the beach and didn't want to get married anywhere near a beach!

I've been with my husband since we were 15. I've been in a pool with him twice and one of those times was when he lost a bet in high school. He wasn't shy about his disgust for the beach and spent trips to the Bahamas and everywhere else over the years locked in the hotel room or pouting on the shore. It wasn't until this very trip that he declared he actually did like the beach all of the sudden. I was torn between utter joy (it's hard to live in South Florida and not go to the beach, you see) and wanting to strangle him a little bit for ten years of agony!

The weather was gorgeous every single day. Our days were full of yummy food, beautiful weather and days on Jupiter Beach, the resort pool (with non-alcoholic pina coladas!) and the Intracoastal at Coral Cove Park. It was the perfect little weekend getaway and while I'm sad it ended, I sure am happy that it happened and we were able to get away for a little bit!

After dealing with being the wife of an accountant during busy season (and my poor husband actually having to work those horrific hours), it was nice to just get away and do a whole lot of relaxing (and eating really, really delicious food -- did I mention that part?).

I love babymoons! It's official! If only all weekends could be this wonderful.
