Before leaving for Mexico I worked for 7 days straight and let's just say that working that many days in a row at a restaurant is enough to make you question your sanity! By the time Thursday morning rolled around I was ready to leave for Mexico!
|Excited to finally be on the plane heading to Mexico!!|
|Goodbye dreary Philly!!|
|Hello Sunny Mexico!!|
Our room seriously did not disappoint. On one side of our balcony we had a fantastic view of the ocean and on the other side we had a great view of the lagoon. I was so excited because I knew we would be able to have a beautiful sunset dinner out on our balcony one of the nights we were there!! And I mean, what better way to have dinner than a sunset room service dinner with your husband??
|Our fabulous room... and yup, first thing we did was pop open the coronas!|
After getting settled we headed down to the pool to meet up with those who were already there and to relax a little bit before the rehearsal. It was so nice to lounge around in the sun and to of course enjoy a margarita or 2 before getting ready for the rehearsal.
I have to say that the rehearsal scared me a bit as it didn't seem like they knew what they were doing and I was very nervous about how things were going to go for the wedding. I am pretty sure JG felt the same way, but she did a really good job of remaining calm and in control of it all. After the rehearsal we all headed to the sushi restaurant for a fun dinner and then over to the piano bar to hang out. Mark and I headed to bed fairly early as it had been a long day of traveling and traveling really takes its toll on me.
Friday morning we were up bright and early to head to the beach. Mark and I got some great beach chairs, but OMG was it hot on the beach. We went down to the water to cool off, but there was so much seaweed that I really didn't want to go in, so after about an hour on the beach we decided to check out one of the other pools that the resort had to offer.
While relaxing by the pool with our margaritas (yes we were drinking margaritas at 9am) we discovered a giant chess board behind us, so of course when EO came to find us we decided that a game of chess was in order. After a riviting game of chess we headed to the other pool to hang out with the wedding party until lunch and it being time for me to start getting ready for the wedding.

|Original 3 does Mexico :-)|
|Seriously some of the best friends a girl could ask for!!|
Monday came too soon and it was time for us to head back to Philly. I was so sad to see our vacation end, but so grateful for the amazing time that we had. 2 weeks later and I am seriously so ready to hop on a plane and head back!! Who's with me?!?!?!
Have you ever gone on a vacation where you just didn't want to come home? And then even after you did come home all you could think about was going back??
