Exploring Cozumel


During our anniversary trip to Mexico where we stayed at The Royal Playa del Carmen resort, we found out that there is a 45-minute ferry ride that takes you over to Cozumel. This sounded like the perfect adventure. The locals tried to push so many different excursions on us but we decided to create our own.

Twice The Blessings, Twice The Fun: High Tea Party

After a busy work week, a quiet Friday night at home was just what the doctor ordered especially since lots were on the agenda for Saturday and Sunday.

I woke up bright and early on Saturday and relaxed a bit before prepping for the tea party of the year since twin girls are on their way! I made mini quiche and fruit skewers and headed over to my friend's' house to help get set up for the baby shower hosted by her family.


Resort Style



Right before we left for Mexico I found this cute fringed kimono at Target and knew I had to have it. The lightweight material along with the floppy hat made a comfortable outfit perfect for exploring the shops in the Playa del Carmen village and then heading to the pool at our resort to relax.

The Royal Playa del Carmen Resort


When we booked our anniversary trip to Mexico, I had no idea the luxury we were in for. I always use Expedia for package deals on flights and hotels combined with airport transfers. We got a great deal plus earning more Expedia points for future travel.

Highlights from Mexico


Hello lovelies!
I've been away for a while but it feels good to be settled back home after four amazing nights in Mexico. We flew back home on July 4th which was full of delays in both Cancun and Orlando airport. Luckily Cancun airport is gorgeous with lots of shopping and restaurants. Orlando baggage claim was not so fun. Sitting on the floor and not being allowed to use your phone or electronics for over an hour because of thunderstorms and lightning outside was torture. The bitter part of a very sweet vacation in paradise but let's focus on the positives.
