Honeymoon Day 1

The first day of our Honeymoon was a travel day. Our flight was leaving very early in the morning, so the night before we drove up to Aran's parents house so that they could drive us to the airport.

So that Friday morning we got up a little before 5 am, got ready and were on the road before 6. Our flight was at 7 so we had just enough time to get there, go through security, grab something to eat and head to our gate. We only had to wait about half an hour before they started boarding the flight. I have never flown with Southwest before so I was very surprised to find out that they do general boarding. And what I mean by that is that you board the plane, but have no assigned seat. You just have to try and find a seat and hope that you get one next to the people that you are traveling with. Luckily we found a row that only had one person in it and she let us take the two inside seats. I got the window seat!!!

Waiting in the airport and on the plane!

After a very bumpy and rough three hour flight, we were in Orlando!!! Once we landed and deboarded, we found our luggage and got our rental car and headed to our resort. We stayed at the Marriott Grande Vista Resort and it was gorgeous. I didn't get any pictures of the resort itself though because we were hardly ever there. We didn't even get a chance to go to the pool. I was kind of bummed about this, but there just wasn't a lot of time.

Our room! Do you see that Jacuzzi tub?  And how adorable are those Swan towels?

Once we got checked in, we went and grabbed some lunch and then did some grocery shopping so that we could make breakfast every morning and have a few snacks. Our room had a full kitchen, so we decided that we wouldn't go out to breakfast so that we could save some time and money. After that we went back to our room and just relaxed and watched TV the rest of the night since we knew the next few days were going to be super busy.

Overall it was a very long day, but we were glad to be there and we were so excited for what was to come the next day.



  1. Ugh, early morning flights are the worst!And yeah, Southwest is weird like that. If you fly it enough then you qualify for the A list and get to board first!

  2. I've never flown Southwest, but that is strange! I hate flying in general haha, so I couldn't handle a 3 hour bumpy flight!!

  3. I've never flown southwest and this makes me not very excited to try them out, ha ha! But I can't wait to read about the rest of your honeymoon!

  4. Sounds like a great start! Can't wait to read about the rest!


Comments are way rad and totally make my day. I love reading each and everyone one of them :)
