Weekly Summer Link Up - The Best Trip of My Life

I am linking up with Miss Monica at I Heart Grade 3 to share with YOU... the best trip of my life!

I have been on several amazing vacations. I have been to Europe, Cancun, and Hawaii to name a few. However, nothing compares to my trip the Bahamas. My boyfriend has to choose his vacation dates a year in advance. He had selected a the last week in June off and it was great because I was out of school. We didn't have anything planned for that week, we just knew it was summer. As it was getting closer we started discussing what we wanted to do. We talked about going to New York to visit his family or San Francisco to sightsee. One night he called me and told me about this cruise he found that was reasonably priced. He was sold and so was I.

We live in California, so we flew to Miami to board the ship.

The first night we had dinner and played a little BINGO. We know how to live it up, don't be jealous!

The next day we went to beautiful CocoCay. We went snorkeling had drinks on the white sandy beach and relaxed to the max. I still don't have any pictures from there since we bought a disposable waterproof camera. Who develops film these days...

Anywho...that night at dinner he told me he wanted to go to the rooftop bar on the top of the ship and have drinks and watch the waves. I agreed because who doesn't love a good cocktail while enjoying the sights.

Once we got to the bar my boyfriend said ,"Wow, this is perfect." Little did I know WHY it was perfect. We waited around for the waiter to come by and he never did. He said he was going to go look for him. When he came back he said that he couldn't find the waiter, but he was holding a ring box. He opened it and I'm pretty sure my mouth was open.

He said many romantic things (that I barely remember since I was in shock) and asked me to be his wife .

Needless to say, this is why this very recent trip was the best trip of my life!

Here are a few other pictures of Nassau. We tried a fresh coconut drink (disgusting!), conch (calamari like) and native beer.


  1. Ohhh how special! I love reading engagement stories :-) Bryn

  2. Hi Amy!

    Great to meet you in Las Vegas and I am so glad that you had the chance to link up! Here's hoping you'll link up again throughout the summer!

    What an incredible engagement story! Remind me to tell you sometime how I ruined mine! lol! Funny story now but not so much then!


    ps. That ring is a stunner! Cudos to your fiancé!


  3. Bryn stole my words :) That is so very special! And the perfect setting! A cruise is a lovely getaway. So relaxing! I think that this should be your motivation to get those pictures developed. Although, I have to admit that I am not very good with taking photos, printing them or sorting them - oops. We have a whole lot of empty frames on the wall - now I'm motivated to fill them :)
