Money + Marriage = Honeymoon

I’ve possibly referenced my, and Girl Ninja’s, honeymoon destination in previous articles, but have never officially announced it. So today I make that announcement. We’re going to Aruba baby!!! I listed all my options in this post, but it really ended up coming down to Costa Rica and Aruba.

After some number crunching, deal hunting, and deciding what was important to us, we went with Aruba. I wish I could show you pictures of where we are staying because it’s off the hook!!! But I’m too scared one of you will show up at my hotel and try to murder girl ninja so you can take me as your husband/slave/lover. I like Girl Ninja too much to put her in such a situation where one of you could kill her.

Anywho, all said and done we will be honeymooning in Aruba for 8 days followed by another 4 days in Seattle. It’s going to be an epic time. Epic in terms of fun. Epic in terms of starting a marriage. And definitely epic in terms of finances.

For the airfare, hotel, airport shuttle, tours/activities, tax, etc we will be dropping $3,500. We will still have food costs and tips to account for. All said and done we should be looking at a $4,200 honeymoon extravaganza. Honestly, I can’t think of a better and more exciting way to spend that money.

We are a little over three months out from the big day and I’ve recently kicked Operation Sexy Body in to full gear. You know I’m not about to drop $4K on a vacation only to hate every honeymoon picture of myself. Girl Ninja is super duper fine, so I gotta be on my A-game if I want to keep her interested in me.

I think I’m going to print this picture of David Beckham and put it on my refrigerator for extra motivation to get ripped. Why Beckham you ask? Although I’m 100% in love with women, I’m not gonna lie, I may or may not have a tiny man crush on him

Now that I’ve updated you all a little bit on my honeymoon plans and my sexy body plans I’d be curious to hear…

1) If you had an unlimited budget where would you go on a honeymoon

2) Who is your celebrity same-sex crush

p.s. Did I mention I like women… a lot 🙂

  1. Could you do a review of your honeymoon accomodations when you get back from Aruba? I know that it may not be a good idea to tell us beforehand, but afterwards the value of the information would basically be the same to your readers and you wouldn't run the same risk.

    1. World Tour on a Airbus A380
    2. Megan Fox.

  2. (1) Australia, to dive the Great Barrier Reef
    (2) a whole slew of 'em — mostly actresses who play bad-ass characters in movies, and carry the attitude over into real life. Gina Davis in The Long Kiss Goodnight, Linda Hamilton in the Terminator trilogy, Angelina Jolie in . . . well, anything, Uma Thurman in Kill Bill, Gina Gershon in Bound, and so on and so on.

  3. This has got to be the funniest article eva.

    My paranoia about cyber stalkers is precisely why I haven't taken the plunge to do a blog of my own. 2 Thumbs up for bravery.

    Your humor is like a drug, so I can see why you must take precautions.

    1. Safari in Africa..and I did do this for my honeymoon. $2K wedding, $10K honeymoon.

    2. Gwen Steffani..or any celeb who's had 2 kids and still has killer abs.

  4. 1. Trip around the world (if money is no object, why limit it to one place?)

    2. Ryan Reynolds, both funny and sexy (I like women, too, I swear)

    PS… Gotta admit, I'm not a huge Beckham fan, sorry Ninja. I think it's combination of the tiny arms, big hands, and tree trunk legs, proportions are off…

  5. 1) Rent a cottage in Denmark. Somewhere mildly isolated but near the sea. With wifi. I learned on my honeymoon how important it was to contact other people when you're spending 2 weeks with just one person all the time.

    2) I'm with Liz, it's really hard to pic one. Between the ones I'd want to be and the ones I'd want to be with….I'd say this week it's Katee Sackoff who plays Starbuck on BSG.

  6. 1. No freakin clue. Though I've thought of Tahiti, but really, I don't know.
    2. Alicia Keys. Same general body type as hers, and every video motivates me to get my sexy back!

  7. 1. Unlimited budget AND time off- year long trip around the world. Some airlines used to offer an around the world ticket where you just had to keep going in the same directions (east, west), I'm not sure if those exist anymore. Although, I have no complaints about our week in Cancun.
    2. Marisa Miller

  8. 1. Around the world ticket! We’d hit up Scotland, Isreal, India, China, Japan, Australia, New Zealand, and Peru for sure! (we’ve already been to most of Europe)

    2. Catherine Zeta Jones–who wouldn’t want to f her?!

  9. Hahaha, you make me laugh time and time again. I am not someone who enjoys using precious moments of my day to read about money and finances, but this blog is a pure addiction.

    My honeymoon spot would definitely be Ireland. And my same sex crush is Natalie Portman. Woot.

    BY the way… how do I follow your blog if I use Blogger?

    • Thanks a alot! Just be sure you don't overdose on me. I'm not too sure if you can follow me on blogger like you can other blogger blogs. But if you want to subscribe to my blog you can definitely do so on the top right corner of my page. You can either subscribe with google reader, or subscribe by email.

      p.s. Portman is hot 🙂

  10. 1. I'd backpack in europe for a year
    2. nicole scherzinger . (the main singer in pussycat dolls). sometimes i pretend i'm her, just for fun.

  11. 1. If I had a ton o' money, I'd hit every awesome snorkeling location in the world and take a month long cruise to wherever…I love cruises…

    2. Alyssa Milano and Sandra Bullock…both hot but Sandra seems funnier…if you ever saw "The Proposal" and didn't laugh out loud to the outdoor chanting scene…well, then you're nuts (pun intended). 🙂

  12. 1. I think I'd "backpack" through Europe. With no money limit, we wouldn't have to backpack though! 🙂 I've never been out of the country, and I'd rather see the sights in Europe than anywhere else.

    2. Geez, what girl don't I have a crush on? Rachel McAdams is my favorite of all girl crushes though, I must say. But I'm also crushing on Drew Barrymore, Angelina Jolie, Zooey Deschanel, Mena Suvari, Ellen Page, Emmy Rossum.

    p.s. I promise I like boys! :-p

  13. hey ninja, have you noticed most of your readers (or at least the ones who leave comments) are women?

  14. Certainly not a lot of males commenting on *this* thread. My trip would have to be a whole year all around the world, both the places I've seen (mostly large areas of Europe and the US) and those I still want to see (mostly Asia).

    Same-sex crush? Note how decorously our host phrases his: "I may or may not have a tiny man crush on him." Well, I don't know about celebrities, but I may or may not have had a tiny man crush on a boy in my high school class named Bob S_____. He unfortunately died a couple of years ago, but he was probably the best-looking male I have ever seen. If I can think of a celebrity who I may or may not have a tiny man crush on, it may or may not be Austin Butler.

  15. Hee, your Beckham picture's caption amuses me.

    My same-sex crushes include Gina Torres (Zoe from Firefly), Angelina Jolie, Keira Knightly (mostly in period costume, and when she's eaten a sandwich or two – skeletons are not sexy!), Christina Hendricks (Joan from Mad Men), Cate Blanchett, Catherine Zeta-Jones …. I could go on!

  16. The Seychelles…I secretly want to get married there (not a lot of people know about it, not to talk of visiting, It'd be ohh so precious!! )Off to dreams of the seychelles!! 2nd option would be Maldives.
