It's October, so this is around the time when we start to wish we could live on a tropical paradise until warmer weather returns in, oh, about May. Luckily for Real Housewives of Orange County stars Gretchen Rossi and Slade Smiley, they got to actually be on a tropical paradise!

The newly engaged couple have been in the Bahamas this week, and it sounds like they've been having a spectacular time as they relax on the beach and enjoy each other's company.

They also are clearly as enamored with each other as they ever have been, judging by this photo of some serious PDA between the two that Gretchen posted to Instagram on October 2.

"Feel in love all over again with the love of my life @sladesmiley," Gretchen captions the pic. "A huge thank you to @sandalsresorts @accesshollywood @mkdmalibu @bwrpr for making everything so special, so romantic, so fun and pretty much just perfect! Would recommend this place to everyone! #gorgeous #sadtoleave #headedhometoday."

We love this photo of them gettin' their smooch on, since you can really feel the affection between the two. And we adore those twinkling lights in the background.

Frankly, we're now just wishing we could have snuck along to the Bahamas in one of their suitcases.
