baby got back

top 20 reasons why our cancun vacation basically equaled paradise:

20. this glorious beach was merely a hop, skip, & a jump away from our room:

19. our room at the resort was beyond posh complete with marble floors, a massive comfy bed, flat screen tv, mini bar o' mexican pepsi/sprite @ our disposal, and a cozy hammock to relax on & enjoy this view:

18. our stay was all-inclusive, meaning "free" room service, "free" drinks, "free" food, "free" slippers, "free" yummy lotion, "free" towels, "free" everything!! we'd eat like 7 times a day, always have a drink in hand, and order room service like it was going out of style! all inclusive baby!!

17. each room had it's own individual hot tub/jacuzzi. chloe was obsessed. we took a dip nearly every night!

16. we had the opportunity to go snorkeling {film's not developed yet} & see some really amazing fish. we also went in a submarine like boat & saw sea turtles & other crazy aquatic creatures. i was brave. you'd be proud.

15. customer service o' mexico is off the hizity-hook! americans need to take a lesson, no doubt.

14. i got to spend
tons of time with my man....who, btw...rocked a handlebar mustache for the latter part of our stay. [for comedic purposes only!]

13. no
scrapbooking...need i say more?

12. cancun was beautiful & fabulous. i wish i would have taken more pictures. happy flowers like these were everywhere:

watching bow enjoy the beach. watching bow practice her walking with grandpa. watching bow salsa dance with grandma. watching bow splash in the water. watching bow have fun with aunt aud & uncle saac. watching bow be hilarious. watching bow flirt with every mexican worker that existed. just watching bow be bow.

10. being extremely lazy while every one of my nice family members played with my child:

9. good ol' father/daughter togetherness time o' plenty.

8. having the biggest trooper of a daughter there ever was! we carted her everywhere & she was an angel. {thanks girl, you rock.}

7. living in "mexican time" aka never knowing what time it is...and not really caring.
it's the way to live, i tell ya.

6. naps sans guilt.

5. yummy pools galore:

4. virgin pina coladas, steak everynight, fresh fruit, & walnut waffles every morn!
{oh, and can't forget the hilarious mexican info-mercials.}

3. having a built-in family tour guide, aka saac...mexican born & raised.

2. did i mention how cute the girl was slash is?

1. spending quality time with the dunn kids. we had a great time relaxing, playing, laughing, talking, and getting to know each other better! thanks for a great time guys!

{okay, gotta go...i have massive amounts of laundry, chores, and most importantly...a week's worth of blog-stalking to catch up on! lol}

Welcome home! I, like everyone else in the blogging world, am jumping for joy that you are back, as I have read and re-read the Ryan post, and then the comments on it, just seeing if there was anything new...which is most likely why I am numero uno at commenting on this posting, because I like your life, and like being e-friends again! Anyways, it looks like you had a blast from the past, and holy cute pictures! I'm officially jealous of your fun vacation, and officially excited to watch your every move of your daily life now that you are back!
Oh, and as always, thanks for the kind words about my room, and I'm flattered that you would say you want to copy! If you ever need help, call me! I love to paint! That's all. Have a fabulous day!

Maybe one day we can take all our cute kids and hubs there and you guys can show us the ropes. That is DEFINITELY one of my top vaca locations now. All because of your rockstar blog about it. lol I am so glad you are back though! I missed your guts!

Looks like it was super fun! Does the bow like her life jacket thing? I need to get one for the Kewps...he is over his sit in "pool babysitter"...We missed your blog, but as always, you don;t dissapoint after you've been on hiatus!

Unknown said...

No wonder you haven't had any new posts! I've checked a million times. I love this post and now I want to go there so bad. How were you so lucky to get 'all inclusive' everything? I seriously wish I was in Cancun right now.

The Wizzle said...

Welcome back girl! Sounds like you had a great time. I'm getting really sleepy just looking at that nice hammock and thinking about napping with a big fat Pina Colada at my fingertips...zzzzz....

Kaytie Brown said...

Ummm..... FREAKING JEALOUS is all I can say!! (actually I'll say more) How fun for your fam! I've been DYING to go to the beach for forever. Chloe is so adorable I can hardly stand it. I'm so excited for her and Brooklyn to be able to chill when we come down to AZ in a few. Love ya!

P.S. TTFN right back at you my forever friend.

Alisse Baldwin said...

I'm so glad you're back, too! I'm jealous of your trip- but more jealous about how many people comment on your posts SECONDS after they arrive. You must really be loved!
