Cabo Trip

I wasn't planning on writing a post about my vacation but then I looked through my phone and had quite a few pics so thought I'd share.  My husband and I have been so busy the past few months and we wanted to really just get away and have a nice relaxing vacation so I thought very little about my blog during that time and just enjoyed the moments without thinking "I should blog about this." We of course took photos with our DSLR but I wouldn't be me without taking a million photos on my phone.  A day does not go by without me taking photos on my phone.  Sometimes I share them on instagram but mostly they just stay on my phone for memories sake :)

A quick snap of the beach on the day we arrived.  It was wonderfully warm and a bit humid but not TOO hot which was great. 


I don't usually wear jewelry when going to the beach/pool but we were just taking a stroll along the beach after lunch so I wanted to get a picture of my jewelry against the sand.  I wore a very neon outfit!  (tank by Aerie and shorts by J Crew)

We've been to Mexico several times and almost every resort we stayed at has just had OK food.  The resort we stayed at this time (Fiesta Americana) had really great authentic Mexican food.  We are not fans of the all inclusive resorts as we've found that food quality is not as great at all inclusives so you do end up paying a lot for food at resorts but it's well worth it to me when it's yummy.  Their homemade tortillas were AMAZING. 

Shot of the resort from the lobby.  It was such lovely weather, I wish I could be there now!


An outfit shot before dinner.  I like to keep it minimal when on vacation so I mostly pack just dresses.

There was a hurricane nearby so the waves were a bit more rough.  We had one day that just poured buckets but it was nice to have a day away from the sun as both my husband and I, even though we slathered on sun screen, managed to get sunburned.  We sat in the outside (covered) patio of one of the restaurants with some drinks and watched the rain pour down.  It was actually quite entertaining :)
 

One of those weird touristy photos, where I'm just posing by a giant cactus.  LOL. I'm not a big pop drinker but even I could not resist the deliciousness of Mexican pops.  The coke was delightful of course but I loved the Orange Fanta.  It really is much better in Mexico!

Just another stroll on the beach on one of the last days.  We spent a lot of time laying by the beach, reading and napping but I really enjoyed walking along the beach, dipping our toes in the water and being with my husband, just the two of us.  (That's the awesome part about going to Mexico in September, the beach was almost always empty!)

It was my birthday during that week and we went partly to celebrate my birthday and partly just to go on a vacation.  I've had a lot of great birthdays but this one with just my husband and I was one of the best ones yet. :)

  1. I have always wanted to visit Cabo. It seems like a great vacation spot. Unfortunately, it's too far from where I live. Hopefully, I'll be able to visit it one day =) Thanks for sharing, Tiffany!

  7. Super cute outfits! I love Mexico AND Mexican food. That's one of my biggest regrets - not trying the authentic Mexican food when we were actually in Mexico.
