Well my massage went well, thank you very much! It was actually incredibly relaxing. I have only had two other massages in my life. One was on the beach when I went to Jamaica with my younger brother and parents. And the other was a couples massage when Jonny and I went to Jamaica for our honeymoon! That massage was a lot of fun, but not nearly as relaxing. However, we did start off by swimming in a jacuzzi!
I loved how everything on the resort was open air. You can see in the back of the picture how there are no doors and it leads right outside. Open air. The gym was open air as were all of the restaurants. Ah, I loved it and wish we could do another honeymoon! At least we got to do San Diego. 🙂
Anyway, here is the reason that our honeymoon massage was not nearly as relaxing as yesterday’s. So before we went into the room, Jonny told me that he had never had a real massage before and he hoped it wouldn’t… errrr…. excite him. Well I couldn’t stop thinking about that! As I was laying there naked and having strong Jamaican hands rub up and down my legs and towards my booty, all I could think about was how Jonny was doing. I literally had to bite my tongue to keep from laughing and at some points I had to muffle my laughter because I just could not help it. I’m sure the masseuse thought I was ridiculous with my head down and my whole body shaking since I was cracking up! Seriously, am I five years old??
I certainly didn’t lift like a five-year-old today! (Or yesterday!)

I love back extensions. I don’t know why, but I have always loved doing them and today was no different. So apparently I am a weirdo and a five-year-old. Awesome. 🙂
