Andrey and I got back from Mexico two weeks ago, and I figured it was time I do a recap on this dusty blog of mine. :) It was our first time in Mexico (for a vacation…I’ve been on missions trips before), and we had a great time! We stayed at the Now Jade resort.I wanted to do this recap with a bunch of pictures, and some of the highlights of our trip. We flew out of San Fransisco fairly early on Tuesday morning. Our flight passed by relatively quickly, and before we knew it, we were on foreign soil. :) The first thing I thought when we got off the place was ohmygosh this place is HUMID! Humidity is not my friend, but I got used to it fairly quickly…especially being in the water all day.
We were greeted with cold, wet face towels to cool off upon arrival.
We took it easy the first day, as we were all running on a few hours of sleep. We went out for Chinese food at what would become our favorite restaurant at our resort, Spice. We sat by the hibachi grill, and while the show was nice, the sweat dripping that ensued was not lol Note to self: never sit near a hibachi grill in Mexico. The rest of the trip was spent reading (3 books read=big accomplishment for me!), napping (a must on vacation), tanning/lounging around, eating, and eating some more. A perfect vacation in my books!
I laughed SO much on this trip! We had an entertaining group. :)
The fire show.
Mojitos alllll day long!
Dusk was my favorite time of day in Mexico. The pool/beach crowds would start to disperse, in search of dinner, leaving the cabanas free for lounging/reading…plus, the wind usually picked up later on in the day. <3
The cool infinity pool, and Andrey playing volleyball.
Andrey & George both ‘tried out’ to become the next American Idol…let’s just say that it didn’t go too well;) The song selection wasn’t the best, and Andrey practiced a few minutes before singing. lol When in Mexico, right?!
There were multiple weddings at the beach everyday…we took advantage of the beauty. :)
Being goofy…we need to learn how to take cute maternity pictures. ;)
In search of food. :)
<3 the ocean
These girls are professional vacationers. :)
Excuse the fuzzy IPhone picture. The boys watching the FIFA world cup. Mexicans take soccer very seriously. :)
Andrey & George picked some coconuts off the trees. Fresh coconut water = so good!…even if I was the only one who thought so. #”thistasteslikedirtywater”
Some of the restaurants we went to had some fancy shmancy foods like ham ash, and coffee air…It was cool to try foods that we wouln’t normally order. Dinner meals were also a time of much laughter…you know, because there’s no better way to break up the stuffy atmosphere in a fancy restaurant. ;)
Coconut water blended with some pineapple juice. So refreshing!
I meant to write babymoon, but somehow ended up restating the obvious. ;)
25 weeks. Belly bump is LARGE and in charge. :)
Andrey fell in love with their coconut ice cream. Here we are enjoying one last scoop before departure.
aaaand just like that, 7 days had gone by, and we were headed home!
I’m so glad that we were able to experience a trip like this before our little bambino joins us. I know I’ll look back at this time with great fondness. ;)
I hope that you guys are having a fantastic summer!
