Brandon and I have been married over a month now and things are finally calm enough for me to have time to write about it! From now on, I will be blogging about our weekly “dates on a budget”, the places we choose to go camping every 6 weeks including the reviews and recommendations of the camp site, and what ever else I think you may be interested in hearing about.
First, let me catch you up on what went on right after the wedding…WE WENT TO CANCUN!! If you haven’t gone…GO! We stayed at the Live Aqua Resort and did an all inclusive package which included all our meals, pool side service of all the alcohol we wanted!!
The resort also had 7 pools, a very nice room, free mini bar, and room service at no extra charge…all inclusive is the way to go! Check out http://www.aquaallinclusive.com/ …we highly recommend it and plan on going back…it cost us around $2100 for 5 days and 4 nights…definitely worth it!
The only thing we paid extra for was snorkeling on the Mesoamerican Barrier Reef where we saw beautiful sealife and I was able to touch a nurseshark!
That’s me touching it ———>
The Next adventure after Cancun was shopping! We used all our Target and Bed, Bath, and Beyond gift cards in one weekend and now we have a chic and modern little home!
Then came selling all our wedding stuff! If you are planning a party or reception or anything I would recommend checking out www.smartyhadaparty.com! They are fast to ship and you get the most for your buck! I was able to sell everything I needed to using www.craigslist.org and sold it all in one weekend!!
Finally, to wrap up the month, during Labor day weekend, Brandon and I went up to the Guadalupe River and to enjoy our first camping trip as a married couple! Our goal is to go camping somewhere different every 6 weeks, so I’ll keep you posted on that.
The camp site we stayed at was called KL Ranch ( http://www.klranchcamp.net/) . We really enjoyed being right on the river, so that was a big plus for that site! Only thing I wasn’t so crazy about is having to pay for your shower…I’m not as experienced a camper as my husband but he says he has never been to a camp site where you have to pay a to get clean…Plus they don’t tell you this on their website…But hey, if you don’t mind spending a dollar for a 5 min shower then I would definitely recommend this camp ground…
Because of the drought, the water in the Guadalupe River was very low. So when we went tubing, we went to the Comal River instead. We were able to stay in our tubes the whole time in that river instead of having to get out at all the shallow areas along the Guadalupe.
All in all we had a great time…the nature was beautiful, and the wildlife was amazing…just watch out for the bees, fire ants, and bullet ants! They were everywhere! \
That was August…Lets see what September brings!!
