Spring Break for a Day!

We headed out the door around 1pm on Saturday afternoon for my surprise one-day Spring Break vacation! 

Destination: Hyatt Regency Chesapeake Bay Golf Resort, Spa and Marina

We arrived and checked in just before 3pm.

It was overcast but still managed to be gorgeous! The temperature was 64  so went on a walk to see the resort grounds.

We didn’t have lunch, so we were getting pretty hungry by the end of our walk!

Time to get dolled up for dinner! I stink at taking mirror pictures but this was my first time wearing this dress and I loved it Smile

We had reservations for 6:45 at The Blue Point Provision Company. We were expecting to walk over but when we got to the lobby, there was a shuttle taking people over! Score!

Drinks first! Dirty vodka martini for me and a Dogfish Head for z!

Dirty martinis should have three olives. No more, no less!

We ordered a dozen of the Choptank Oysters (6 salty, 6 sweet) and salads!

Because we ordered so much food, I decided to order off the appetizer menu:

MUSSELS! Yum, yum, yum!!!!

z ordered grilled swordfish that came with mashed potatoes, broccolini, and seaweed salad!

We had a great meal! We decided to walk back to the hotel for fresh air and to help our tummies digest!

Oh, hello!

After our walk we sat by the outdoor fire until the wind was too much to handle. We headed straight to the hotel bar!

After looking through the menu for a while I decided on a sweet tea vodka and lemonade drink. z looked very secretive and told me he was going to “try something new.” I thought that was great…until he ordered an Irish Coffee!

Thoughts that immediately ran through my head: Is this a joke? Uh, what were you thinking? Have you ever ordered this drink in your life? Do you know what Irish coffee is?

But, none of that came out of my mouth. I gave a weird look and let the server walk away.

I took one sip of his Irish coffee and you could have lit my breath on fire. SO much whiskey. BARF. My drink on the other hand…was awesome.

We got the check after the first round, but when the clock told us it was 9pm, we slapped ourselves back to the reality of being young and in love.

Round two please! I was much happier with z’s second choice was much better. A safe gin and tonic for z and a coconut lime vodka cooler for me!

And because we were going so crazy…we ordered apple cobbler for dessert!

SO STUFFED. I could hardly walk back to the room! Lights out!

We had a great time and I was so surprised! Seriously, isn’t my boyfriend the sweetest?? <3 <3

 

Happy Spring Break to me!
