vacation in paradise

so my first official week of work is almost over, and i couldn't be more happy with how it's gone so far. everyone in the office is great and i already know i am truly going to enjoy this job. now, on the other hand, the hour and a half commute to DC is a different story. the train is kicking my butt, and i have to wake up suuuuper early. but i'm trying to make the best of it! and at least i'll get a lot of reading done in these next few months :)

so while i sit at my desk, working 9-5, i'm dreaming of last week when i was on vacation in cancun and it was perfect. if you follow me on instagram, than you already know anthony and i had an amazing time in mexico. i put together a little photo diary with some of my favorite moments from the trip! sorry in advance for alllll of the photos, when i said "little" photo diary, what i really meant was "really unnecessarily long" photo diary. enjoy!

cancun is the bomb dot com. the water was turquoise, the weather was warm, and the pools were equipped with bars in the water so you didn't even have to get out!! talk about heaven on earth. i tried to take as many photos as i could because every single view was just beautiful. the resort we stayed at, oasis sens, was awesome. it was in a great location, all-inclusive, and everyone there was super friendly. we found a great deal on expedia a few months ago and we definitely felt like we got our money's worth.

there were multiple restaurants open through out the day, and all you had to do was walk in, get seated, order, eat, and leave! it was so weird not paying a bill at the end of the meal-- ha! it was nice to just relax and not worry about money while we were there, because everything was paid up front. we drank wine at the italian restaurant, magaritas at the mexican restaurant, and summery cocktails by the pool. YUM.

another awesome thing about the resort was the fact that there was nightly entertainment. there were burlesque dancers, piano players, acrobats, mayan dancers, and water performers. there was always something fun to do at the end of the day. music, drinks, dancing-- it was great to hang out and meet some other couples who were on vacation, too!

it was such a relaxing and fun and exciting and amazing week. vacations to tropical places in the middle of winter are magical.  i highly recommend it. well, now it's back to the real world! happy friday, all.
