Jacqueline looks back at the entire Punta Cana adventure.

on Oct 10, 2011

When we arrived in Punta Cana, the warm weather felt so good. We left the cold, icy snow of New Jersey behind us. Nice sunny weather gives me so much positive energy.
When I heard that someone was missing a bag, I got freaked and made a beeline for mine and ran over the baggage belt carrier to get it. (So we may have had a few cocktails on the plane…) Teresa's accessory bag went missing for Godsake! That was horrifying! Luckily for her, it finally showed up, but unfortunately not until our last day there. Woman's nightmare!

Not going to lie, as badass as it looked coming around the bend in our Escalades, I kind of felt like a jerk driving through where we had to go in them in order to get to our hotel. It just didn't feel right. Neither did stopping along the highway so all of our men could get out to pee in the tall grass. "You're from Jersey and you can tell! Way to keep it classy, Jersey!" Thanks, Melissa! Sometimes I wish I had a penis, so I could just whip it out and whiz whenever and wherever I wanted, then just shake it off, stick it back in my pants, and walk away. It's much more complicated and less convenient for women. Not fair! I had to hold it in until I got to a little girls room. The little place we stopped to use the rest room was like using an outhouse. There was no toilet paper, no way to flush, and no water to wash your hands. I could have gone in the tall grass on the side of the road after all and used a leaf or dripped dry in the wind. I always carry feminine wipes with me. You just never know when they will come in handy. Sorry for the over share.

The Hard Rock Hotel & Casino was amazing and our rooms were incredible with such beautiful views. It was impressive. The people at the hotel were so welcoming and accommodating. We can't thank them enough.
