Spring Break – Jamaica Edition

The past 2 weeks have been a blur.  My birthday was during finals week (boo hoo) which was followed by a trip to Jamaica.  When you get older birthdays are just like any other day, except people are (usually) a little nicer to you and sometimes give you cake and presents.  This year, my mom made me a yummy birthday dinner and Hubby brought an awesome St. Patty’s day themed strawberry shortcake for dessert.  

100_1190 My parents got me a chair for my sewing table which turned out to be perfect, plus I’m proud of the fact that I put it together myself.  Up until recently I had been using an ottoman (ouch!) or a chair from my dining room. 

Hubby got me a new camera which takes amazing pictures.  We weren’t supposed to get each other birthday gifts this year…which I of course followed, but he didn’t.  So I wasn’t expecting a gift, but when I went up to bed there was a camera on the tv with a cute little bow.  He’s so sweet!

After finals were over, we packed up and flew to Jamaica for 5 days.  We stayed at the Sunset Beach Resort in Montego Bay.  It was amazing…and so warm and sunny every day.  The food was so-so but everything else was great!

View of the beach….each day was this gorgeous!

Love the new green and happy look of your blog! :)

And may I say I'm quite jelaous of your trip to Jamaica? I wouldn't mind some clear blue sky and beaches for a couple of days...

Happy belated birthday!
