Honeymoon Recaps - My 30th Birthday

One of the other reasons we decided to splurge on our honeymoon with a trip to the Maldives was that it was a double celebration. While on our trip, I would be turning 30. Some very good friends of us have a "tradition" of doing something big on big birthdays, and we really liked this idea and decided to steal it :). For Mr. Milk's 30th we took a week long trip to Kauai, and it was one of the best vacations we had. 

So my day started off with a surprise from my hubby: he had arranged for a private breakfast on our patio. 

While we were still sleeping, the lovely hotel staff started to set up our breakfast table outside

By the time we got up and ready, our food was out there waiting for us. We had fruit, waffles, pancakes, omelets, hashbrowns, toast, croissants and other pastries, juice, and coffee. It was delicious!

Mr. Milk had asked the staff at the hotel for some flowers, and since there is no store on the island, they arranged to have a bouquet brought over from Male (the capital) the evening before. 

We spent the day by the beach and then after lunch we went for a couples treatment at the spa. We had our own over-water bungalow treatment room and both got scrubs and massages. It was so relaxing. Unfortunately we didn't take a camera so I have no pics of that :(

For dinner we went to the teppanyaki restaurant that was also over the water.

We ordered sushi to start off with...

...and then some veggies, rice, shrimp, and lobster! Our chef was great and the food was amazing!


I love how vivid these pics are! 

And of course no birthday is complete without birthday cake! Mr. Milk was able to arrange to have a small chocolate cake made just for me. As you can see, I turned 2 ;)

Again, we were having such a great time with the food that we forgot to get a picture of ourselves that day! Oh well...

What a great way to celebrate your birthday! My 30th was 10 days before my wedding so we didn't do much on the actual day but I like to think the wedding/honeymoon were also birthday celebrations for me. haha.

That is just the sweetest, coolest thing ever that Mr Milk did for your birthday :) I LOVE teppanyaki restaurants and we almost always go to one with my family to celebrate my birthdays :) My 38th b-day was just about 3 weeks ago and we are going to be celebrating it a little late with a trip to Vegas some time in the next month. Hope we have as fun as you two did.
