Is there a wedding band included with this package?

The Honeymoon begins…

Before leaving the room…

Marie: We’re going to the beach, we’re going to the beach…(in a sing-song voice…because I sing-song all. the. time.)
Mark: Yeah, we need to get out there as soon as possible. We don’t want to waste any time. If we waste time it’s like they’re stealing from us. So let’s go!
Marie: Yes! To the beach we go!
Mark: Do you need to put anything in the safe? Because we have a safe. And we don’t want to waste anything. Don’t waste time. Don’t waste amenities. No. waste.
Marie: No, I’m cool… I trust everyone and everything. (mind you, this was pre-dog bite Marie…now I trust no one).
Mark: Yeah, well I’m gonna put something in there…(starts picking up random objects from around the room to throw in the safe)… ok, let’s go!

Out on the beach

Mark: Ok, let’s go check out what beach toys we can use. This Sandals place is all-inclusive. That doesn’t mean it’s free, that just means we’ve already paid for everything. So let’s squeeze every dime we can out of this place, baby!
Marie: Sounds like a plan! I want to… lay out! I’ll go grab the free towels!
Mark: No, no, no. We didn’t come here to lay out. We need to use their stuff. The canoes. The sail boats. The kayaks. Towels are not amenities. What free adventure do we want to go on?
Marie: Oh. Well, let’s… kayak?
Mark: Great choice. If we get started now, we should be able to use all our free amenities before lunch…

Mark (after using the free sailboat, free kayak, and free canoe) is windsurfing… for free.

Marie: Now that we’ve used everything can we lay out? Or even just swim?
Mark: Yeah, let’s swim, first in the ocean, and then we’ll go to all the pools. Must. use. everything.
Marie: Yeah…whatever. Hey! Did you put your wedding band in the safe? Should I have put my ring in the safe? Ugh! I suck at being a wife!!
Mark: My ring? (looks at hands) Oh no! I’ve lost my wedding band! It fell off in the water!
Marie: Ha! So you suck! Not me! Awesome.

Unfortunately, wedding bands are not a free amenity at the Sandals Resort…

Every time I asked Mark what happened to his ring, I would get this pitiful look. Poor guy.

    That is so funny and totally something I would do. I am such a cheapskate! I’d probably have an itenerary of things planned – just to insure that EVERYTHING that was free had been used! Ha!!

    We left our wedding bands in the hotel safe when we went snorkeling on our honeymoon. I hated leaving them in there. I just wanted to have a flashing sign with me at all times that said “We’re newlyweds and we’re sickeningly (is that a word?) in love with each other! See our shiny rings!!” So it was sad to not have them on when snorkeling. We were taking pictures and I NEEDED those rings in the pic! ha! The people advised us that they are millions of rings at the bottom of the ocean and we probably didn’t want to add to the collection.

    On another note… I think this past winter was when the following happened. Thomas called me frantically one day while I was at work. He was missing his wedding band and wanted to know if I knew where it was. (No, I’m not a mind reader or anything but he wanted me to tell him where it was located.) He thought that I hid it somewhere. Yes, I’m a mean wife and hide his ring from him if he isn’t wearing it. πŸ™‚ ha

    Anyway, I wasn’t guilty this time and reminded him of the places that he normally leaves it. He checked and still couldn’t find it. He was really upset and kept asking me if I had it. I told him that I didn’t and that we would just go buy another one. It wasn’t that big of a deal. He FLIPPED out!

    He wanted that one ring that I had already given him. You know – the one I gave him at our wedding! No other would do. He was really upset and I couldn’t help but laugh because I thought it was so cute that he was so worried about it. He then got upset with me for laughing because it wasn’t funny. He. lost. his. wedding. ring! It was seriously the sweetest thing EVER! I love that it means so much to him.

    PS. He sleeps with his wedding ring on now. Cute, right?

    I so thought of you in the back of my head as I wrote this, “Candice would be so proud of Mark!”

    And you are hilarious. I love that he seriously thought you hid his ring. Good stuff. And it is adorable that he had so much value in it because you gave it to him.

    Mark just got his new one in the mail yesterday, and he was wondering if it was ok if he bought more than one, wtf?!? I don’t know why other than to change them out periodically… weird. I said no, unless I got to engrave mushy lovey dovey things in all of them. Thomas needs to talk to him, help him understand how special the ring is πŸ˜€

    Thomas’s band is engraved with all kinds of super secret stuff. πŸ˜‰

    Mark moves up a rank in my book because of his cheapness. Kudos Mark!!!

    We’re going on a cruise next month. I’m already scouting out the “freebies”. Thomas is planning to eat 24/7 for the week!! Score! ha!!
