Our Mexico Vacation

August 4, 2014

What a faaaabulous vacation! We had the best time in Mexcio last week. We were so ready to get in the sun, lounge by the ocean and sleep as much as we wanted. (We are so spoiled!) Allen and I were feeling drained from the last few months of settling into the new house and being really busy at work so we really needed some time to slow down and recharge.

We opted for an all-inclusive in Riviera Maya, between Cancun and Tulum. Our number 1 criteria for this vacation was that it had to be easy. We just wanted to get away! Allen and I had never done an all-inclusive together (I did them with my family growing up) and we wanted to try it. Plus, I honestly just didn’t have the time or energy to put toward hunting down great restaurants! A few friends suggested El Dorado Royale, so that’s what we chose.


It was gorgeous!


Since our hotel was only about an hour away from Tulum, we decided to adventure down to the ruins. You guys, it is SO pretty! It was really touristy, but it’s worth it to see the views. It was so hot that day, Allen and I were delirious. I’ve literally never been so hot in my life!

The whole trip, we basically spent as much time we could on the beach. I’m a beach kind of gal, ya know? I’m one of those people who believes you can lay by a pool anywhere, but you can only hear the waves and feel the sand at the beach!


I just love this guy right here! He makes me laugh all day long.

I read #GIRLBOSS, by Sophia Amoruso, in just a couple of days. It’s quick witted and funny, a great beach read.


It was such a great vacation. We are so thankful for some time away to recharge and be together. Thanks, Mexico! We’ll be back!
