So for Bretts 30th Birthday I wanted to take him on a trip and the only thing I think is a vacation would be when Bretts phone is not ringing so i had to take him all the way to Tahiti to make that happen. ( I use the word had lightly) :) Can i just say 8 days of no calls it was like a glimpse of heaven.
So I will just tell the whole story. I planed this amazing trip with out Bretts knowledge & surprised him on Christmas day with the details. So on Dec. 28th we set off to Tahiti. After a long day of missed flights we arrived to Tahitti safe & sound. At the airport as you get off the plane they hand out flowers and have people performing. It was just a small sign of how amazing this place was. So that night we stayed at the intercontinental hotel. It was beautiful & sooo hot. Then after a morning by the pool we flew to Moreea a 10 min. flight on a very small plane. In Morea we stayed in a beach bungalow it was so beautiful. There we stayed for 3 days, golfed, relaxed, swam with the dolphins, & brought in the new year Tahitian style. Then we flew to Bora Bora (40 min flight) it was our fav. island. There we stayed at the tholossal Intercontinental, one of the nicest places I have ever been. We stayed in this amazing & huge over the water hut. What an experience. There we snorkeled with sharks, swam with sea rays, took advantage of the amazing spa, & fell in love with macaroons. They had the most amazing french food & it was a good thing they had a gym too. :) It was a trip of a life time. Brett & I had the most amazing time, not just because of where we were but it was amazing to get to just talk to each other for 8 days. But the second we got home it has been straight back to business. Brett is soo busy with pinnacle & I am co chair of junior miss & just started to teach ballroom again. But the break was nice and now we can make it through the rest of the crazy year. Hope you all had as happy new year as we did ;) .
