cabo cabo cabo

 well. we are b a c k!  
feeling refreshed and NOT ready for Monday to be here already.  6 days of mountains in the desert of Cabo.  so much different than every other trip we have taken to Mexico.  we usually stick to the Cancun side, so Cabo was a big change!  the weather, the atmosphere, and most importantly..the weather.  
did I say that already?
it was sunshine and blue skies..and my hair was amazing the entire trip.
true story- I didn’t take a shower and feel like I needed to take another shower after attempting to blow-dry the frizz out- ha!  Cabo is very dry with low humidity and never gets above 85 degrees! it was beautiful.  a beautiful time with my best guy.  we didnt leave the resort- laid by the pool for about 12 hours everyday and then peeled ourselves out of our swim suits and rinsed off the sunscreen to get into real clothes for dinner.  
the food!  the food was delicious!  I ate a cheeseburger + fries just about everyday for lunch.  Jordan loved the baja shrimp tacos.
we had so much fun just the two of us- being lazy without a single responsibility or obligation in the world.  we made our way to the beach about once a day- the surf was incredible. there was no swimming allowed on the side of Baja Mexico we were on because the undertow is very strong and very dangerous- but the view of those 10 foot waves crashing like thunder about every 10 seconds was amazing to see.  
we caught ourselves about one million times talking about what we could do with the girls and how much “fun the girls would have if they were here”.  we stayed at Dreams Los Cabos Suites Golf Resort + Spa and will definitely be going back and bringing the babes!

 I love a good fruity drink.. in fact I cant even count how many ‘superman’ frozen drinks I had over the course of the week, BUT a Bloody Caesar is my go-to.
extra spicy, for favor!
 there were iguanas all over the resort and this little guy was missing part of his tail and one foot.  happy as can be bathing in the sun.

 annnnnd we got ourselves a selfie stick.  Jordan made fun of my purchase for the entire trip. 
if I shared how many selfies this boy actually took you would think he was singing a different tune!

 gah.  I love him, so.
 breakfast every single day for the last 4 years didn’t stop in Cabo.  
oh, well.. I had scrambled eggs, too.  so there.

 the day they added bacon to my cheeseburger.. 
 the best dinner of the entire trip.  
crab stuffed sea bass
 hey, Caesar 
 Jordan.  muscle tank and ball cap.
you can take the boy out of Texas, but not Texas out of the boy.

all of my bathing suits were from Victoria’s Secret (I buy VS suits every single year!) except the highwaisted bottoms and peplum top.  those amazing pieces are from kortni jeane! they run true to size, so I got my usual.  I always size up on the bottoms at Victoria’s Secret:) their tops fit me pretty well and my favorite style is definitely the bralette- they recommend ordering a size up.
from right to left:
(I got the coverup on groopdealz a while back but did a quick search and found it on amazon!)
 hat / top / bottom
 don’t mind my crazy-I-just-want-to-get-home eyes.  and last night’s makeup.. and salty hair.  we had a few hours in the morning that last day, so we soaked what we could of those last moments in the Mexico sun- literally came from wearing my bathing suit at the beach straight to the airport. 
but first, Starbucks!  I never thought I would be so excited.  I’m such an American.  
 my people!  we are home!  we got home late on Saturday night and Auntie and Uncle J had the babes in bed already.  I laid about 25 kisses on those sleepy girls but they didnt move a muscle.  the big girls woke to us being home in our beds and we all laid there exchanging stories about our past week.  Ah it is so great to be home! 
such a fun week spent with my love. much needed adult time to be away and recoup from the everyday life of being parents to three- but it didnt take long to miss our little dolls fiercely.
next time those girls are coming with us!
happy Monday!

    Sounds like so much fun!!!! I am loving the summer vibe of your nail polish! Is it just white, or a sandy color? Would love to know what shade it is 🙂

  3. amber says:

    Amanda- it's just plain white (not matte)! I get NexGen or dipped powder on my nails, so there isn't a real name but it's white, white☺️

  4. Dani Lewis says:
