Mexico Recap Days 3-5

Welcome back! Grab your tea -- or mimosa if you're like me and pretending you're still in Mexico -- and settle in to see the rest of our trip! Be sure to check out days 1&2 from yesterday if you haven't yet!

Breakfast with a view! Also, please note all of our "breakfast appetizers" of pastries.

After breakfast, we walked the famed 5th Avenue and saw this cute mall.
We also wandered down some of the side streets to see the little shops and restaurants.

We got back from walking around and I had a tour scheduled of the property and was so tickled when I saw my logo up on the board at the front desk.

The resort has a made-to-order bar where you tell the bartender what you like and they'll make a drink specific to you! It was such a cool little gem!

Once my tour ended, we found ourselves poolside again just in time for the Tribal party.

Complete with more acrobatics!

Different day, different book, same view.

Living my best life!

I didn't know for the longest time that the music was a live saxophone player, she was that good!

Ready for dinner!

Tres leches AND a frozen churro? Yes please!

That night's show included more acrobatics and rock music!

We wandered down to the beach for a little bit.

I loved exploring with him.

I'm sure he's trying to figure out a way how to move there.

Ready for our last dinner!

This might have been my favorite meal of the trip! I've never had sushi before (I don't like seafood) but I LOVED this vegetarian roll. Give me all the carrots, avocado and plantains please!

Remember that bar I was telling you about earlier that makes customized drinks? We visited it while we waited for the evening's entertainment.

Wishing this vacation would never end!

That night's entertainment was the Urban Show.

It even included some amazing soccer footwork!

Trying to soak in the last few minutes before heading back to reality.

Look at this cutie who was seated next to me on the flight!

Remember yesterday how Stephen didn't have a window? Well this time he had two!

Thanks for visiting Mexico with us. If you'd like to plan an actual trip there, please reach out to me at and I'd love to help you plan your dream vacation -- all at no extra charge to you!

Honeymoon Adventures: Setting Sail and Gibraltar

 17 Days. 10 Countries. 1200+ Pictures. 2 Cruises. Infinite laughs and memories. Stephen and I are officially back from our incredible honeymoon and adjusting back to reality. Settle in and get ready to experience our trip of a lifetime. All we saw in Switzerland was the airport but considering our passport was stamped there, we're counting it as one of our countries. After arriving in Barcelona, we stopped off in our hotel room to drop things off before grabbing an early dinner and calling it a night after a LONG day of travel. This restaurant isn't open yet, but it's already Stephen's favorite. It's hard to see in the pictures, but those are cemeteries and mausoleums built into the hillside.  Here we are getting ready to board our ship, the Enchanted Princess (all my Taylor Swift fans, IYKYK! I also walked down the aisle to that song!)  Look at my handsome HUSBAND all ready for his first cruise! The ship was gorgeous and we immediately set out exploring. The prome

Honeymoon Adventures: Marseille

 After our long travel day and a busy day in Gibraltar  we were more than ready for a day at sea to rest and relax before non-stop ports and tours. I'm dubbing these the best chicken nuggets at sea! Our ship had a Salty Dog location onboard and it was the perfect pool snack! If you know anything about me, you know I am a HUGE tea person. I mean my bachelorette party was a tea party so when I saw that afternoon tea was offered, I quickly ordered it! Please look at all of these tasty treats! I ordered for two people and they sent us SO. MUCH. FOOD. Who knew that avocado and mayo sandwiches were something I need in my life, but they definitely are! After his first experience with scones, clotted cream and some sort of delicious preserves (possibly apricot?) Stephen declared us "Afternoon Tea People." We also declared that we were too full to eat dinner in an hour and a half but that statement didn't last long. I was in my element when it came time for Broadway Trivia tha

July Book Review

I thought June was a good month for books, but somehow July was even better! This month saw seven books including a memoir, a YA series, some historical fiction, a beach read and suspense novel. Grab a glass of iced tea and open up your Goodreads account so you can add some of these books to your TBR list! My first read of the month was Over the Top  by Jonathan Van Ness from Queer Eye.  I was at the library looking for a different book when I saw this one and picked it up on a whim. I love the show and listened to Tan France's audiobook last year so I was excited to learn more about JVN and get some inside scoop on the show. That being said, I wasn't that impressed with the book. It mostly talks about his wild days and I do appreciate his vulnerability speaking out about mental health issues and how left untreated, it wasn't healthy -- or safe. I think I just went into the book with different expectations but that being said, I'm glad I read it. Next up was Not a Happ
