We’re skipping the regular scheduled posting of Shoes-Day! to show you our Babymoon photos Come on’, you’re excited right? (Yeah, yeah, it’s okay if you’re not).
Whoever invented Babymoons and push presents really is a genius. They both may seem like frivolous things, but the Babymoon in particular is quite necessary. It’s meant to the be an opportunity (the last?) to spend some quality time together as a couple before the little one arrives.
Zach and I knew we didn’t want to fly anywhere – I have flown so much for work this year and wouldn’t want to fly more than 1 hour given that I’m in my 3rd trimester anyway. We decided upon returning to Tickle Pink Inn in Carmel, where we got engaged 3.5 years ago
It’s a little less than a 2 hour drive and is really one of my favorite places on earth. If you have not yet been to Carmel / Big Sur / Monterey, I highly encourage you to go. The beauty is unparalleled!
Before arriving at the B&B, we stopped in downtown Carmel to walk along the sand:
Then we were off to the B&B and arrived just in time for warm cookies to be served. Can’t beat that! Here are some shots of our room and views from our private balcony:
His and hers hip shots
Kinda love these shots!
Before we knew it, it was time for the wine and cheese hour back at the B&B:
Cran-apple sparkling cider for now and some champagne for later
Since one night at the Tickle Pink is a whopping $500 with tax, we decided to make the absolute most of our stay and not go out for dinner, but have dinner come to us!
Dinner in bed? Heck yes!
And watched a pretty nice sunset from our balcony:
The next morning, we had our breakfast delivered so we could relax in our robes and eat at our leisure:
Before long, it was time to say good-bye to Tickle Pink and hello to 80 minute hers and his massages – oh yes!!!
This was my 3rd prenatal massage, but my first massage doing the belly/boob hole thing on my tummy. I think I prefer laying on my side, but the massage was lovely regardless! And Sawyer seemed to enjoy it as well based on the wiggles and kicks he was going.
To conclude the day we walked around downtown Carmel and oooed and ahhhed over the yummy bakery treats and cute shops.
It was a truly perfect Babymoon!
Have you stayed in a B&B? Any particular memorable one?
Am I missing any other fabulous baby-related luxury (aside from Babymoons and push presents)???
