Checking In From Mexico!

by Courtney on February 21, 2013

Well hellooooooo there, everyone! How’s the week been going for ya so far? I feel like we’ve barely chatted, which mostly has to do with the fact that I’ve seriously been enjoying my time away. I’m spending most of my time away from technology and just soaking up every last minute while I’m here.

But, of course I’m going to give you all a super quick update!

We arrived late yesterday afternoon and were greeted with open arms by some of our friends who were already here. We were almost immediately poolside, and then spent our entire day yesterday here…just like this.


Poolside, in the pool, partaking in funky water aerobics, and drinking lots of delicious beverages. Just as I suspected, the fruity drinks are just as delicious sans alcohol. Winking smile

We were also surprised with a room upgrade upon our arrival and let me tell you…it is an amazing room. Remember our room last year? I thought that was great! But then we walked in to this…



I mean, there’s even special doors for the jacuzzi tub in our bathroom!


Which is, once again, crazy large and super awesome.


And here’s the view from our balcony. Just beautiful. Smile



On Tuesday night, our crew of ten enjoyed a delicious hibachi dinner, which was full of entertainment.


And last night, we all headed out for Italian.


Apparently seating for 10 can be difficult, so we had to be split up and Jay and I sat with the newlyweds.


The ladies!


I haven’t bothered taking any photos of food while I’ve been here so far, but you can always see some of my favorites from last year. Oh, and you can bet that I most definitely had a crepe at breakfast this morning.

Overall things so far have been absolutely fantastic and we’re really looking forward to the rest of our week here in the beautiful weather (and hoping that it goes by super slow!).


So there’s just a little check-in to say HELLO to you all! Hope the week is going great and I’ll be back again soon. Smile

Mexico looks AMAZING!! My favorite part about going away is relaxing by the pool with a nice tropical drink. It looks like you all are having a great time. Enjoy the sun xo.
