6)  I’ve been reunited with the rejuvinating powers of uninterrupted nights of sleep and midday naps.

    hope youre enjoying the rest of your trip and happy (belated) anniversary!

  2. Well just reading that made me feel like a new woman! lol… whew, I dont have any plans for when hubby comes home, but i better start making some!

  3. Oh my god, I love this list! I'm going to have to show it to my husband, ha ha! I don't think I could possibly pamper myself right now since we are still unpacking but my husband does a pretty good job at rubbing my back every night =)

  4. I am so, so happy for you! Hope you and your husband are having a fabulous time! Im totally jealous that you're in the Caribbean. Enjoy the ocean and a fruity drink for me. And yes, it really is ok to have a drink before noon!

  5. Sounds pretty damn fantastic to me! Enjoy the rest of your much deserved vacation and get all the pampering, drinks before noon and more your heart desires.

  6. That sounds heavenly!!

  7. Yes, I totally agree with the above. Have a wonderful, relaxing time with Mr. RC and may your most important decision of the day consist only of what to have for dinner (or lunch, or breakfast)!
