Jamaica...Day 3

I suppose I need to get back to blogging about my vacation now that the holiday craziness is over. Here's a beautiful picture of the amazing country:

Our third night was one of Jimmy's favorite nights. The resort threw a party on the beach that included lots of grub, desserts, and a guy who did crazy fire tricks!
Here's an example of some of the food...I put this one in because it made me think of the Razorbacks! WOO PIG SOOIE!
We spent a couple of hours dancing and hanging out on the beach! Livin' the sweet life :)

Jamaica...Day 2

Each morning in Ocho Rios began with this amazing view:

All of that while munching on this amazing breakfast (this is just a small part of the buffet):
We got to enjoy that for 7 days in a row! Wow! That gave me a lot of motivation to get up every morning :) After breakfast we explored the resort so that the stupid map they gave us made a little more sense. We mostly spent the day at the beach and pool...sippin' on our favorite cocktails and soakin' up some sun.

That night, we made reservations at the Japenese Hibachi Grill. Our chef was quite the entertainer and sang to us the whole time. Jimmy and I got crazy and joined in on the fun. Jimmy used his chopsticks as drum sticks and we ended up singing "Rocky Top" because there were 4 UT people at the table :) Good times. Oddly enough, we went to our room after dinner to watch "Once Upon a Time" before we went out for the night (we are obsessed with that show!).

Just when I thought the night life couldn't get better than the Steel Drum Band the night before, I ended up having just as much fun with this night's late entertainment. One of the bars had Karaoke hour followed by club style dancing! Lisa+2 apple martinis+1 cosmopolitan+Jimmy=crazy time! The Jamaican people are so awesome! This is us after dancing that night:

Jamaica...Day 1

I was trying to think of a way to tell everyone about our vaction without overwhelming them with a HUGE blog. Everyday was so unique and fun in it's own way so I decided to just write separate blogs for each day as I feel lead :)
The flights were ok (although we left for the airport at 430 a.m.!!!) but, when we got to Montego Bay, we had a long bus ride to the resort (in Ocho Rios). I had such a headache from flying that it made the ride HORRIBLE! When we got to the resort, it took forever to check in and get to our room but I managed to find time for a quick pose:
We had no idea how to get around the resort (which was actually two separate resorts) and all they gave us was a map the size of a postcard. Needless to say, Jimmy and I had some arguments over where we were going which put us both in a bad mood...How can you be in a bad mood in Jamaica?!
Later that night, it was all made better by the Steel Drum Band. They were so amazing! (I've tried to upload a video of them on this blog several times but it's not working...I posted it to my facebook if you're interested)
