Mexican Holiday- October 5th- 13th, 2013

I’m back from my Mexican holiday and feeling sleepier than I did before I left; must be all the fresh air and sun, knocks a girl out. The hubby and I had an amazing time at Bahia Principle in the Mayan Riviera Mexico. Great service, amazing beaches and pools, yummy cocktails, fun entertainment, friendly people, but the food was only so so. I’m never one to complain about food, I’m pretty easy to please, but every meal we had was cold and tasteless (besides the A-La- Carte Restaurants). I’m not a huge eater anyways and what I didn’t consume in food, I made up for in liquor.

I really can’t say enough good things about this resorts, I’ve stayed at a Bahia in the past, but this one was much nicer and so much more to see and do. You had the option of checking out the other Bahia hotels, use their services, enjoy their pools, eat and drink at all their restaurants, etc. all within walking distance or you could hop on one of their trolleys that come every few minutes to take you wherever you wanted to go. I swear you would have to stay there at least 2 weeks to test out everything, must have been 10 different pools, 20+ different restaurants and 20+ different bars, a girl could get used to that.

All in all the perfect holiday, the perfect Birthday and the perfect Anniversary. The hubby even surprised me with the new Michael Kors Hunger Watch, fresh Mexican flowers, champagne and a new dress on my Birthday- talk about an amazing man.

Now, the bad part of the trip. On the plane ride there, we got stuck with kids kicking our seats, we confronted the parents, who did nothing and basically said we were imaging it, fun times. Then on day 3 my Nikon camera thought it was a good idea to stop working, we took it into town to a camera repair guy who said it was broken due to humidity. He was going to fix it, but had to order parts and it wouldn’t arrive till Sat, so we said forget it. We hit up a local Wal Mart- picked up a $200 camera thinking at least we could get some pictures of the rest of the trip, geez you would think for $200 USD you would get an okay camera, boy was I wrong. You will see from the pictures below the camera pretty much sucked, so sorry about the picture quality.

I hate that you can only pack 44lb worth of clothes now, I remember back in the day when the hubby and I would pack 2 suitcases each, bring enough clothes and shoes to last a month, now we really try to pack “light”; which is why I only brought dresses, the hubby’s clothes weigh enough on their own, if I packed anything besides dresses, we’d be over for sure. I guess it’s a good time to get some extra use out of my dresses anyhow?

  1. Looks like you had an awesome time!

    • I had an amazing time, so looking forward to going back (next summer) the countdown is on

  2. Looks like you had a fun time! I can’t wait to get down there :) Loving all the different dresses.

    • I love love love Mexico- this was our 2nd time and we’re heading back next summer for a friends wedding, yahoo! When are you going?

  3. I’m sorry but you’re about 10 years too old to wear that pink dress. It looks like something a teenager would wear to her grad. Sorry I had to say it. Just my opinion.

    • I value your opinion sweetie, I originally bought this dress for my charity’s annual high tea party, but think it’s too cute to only wear once, you can have fun on your holidays with fashion at any age, so I’ll have to disagree with you on this one.

  4. Yes I agree you can have fun with your fashion but the key is to keep it age appropriate.
