Picture of the week: vacation album

I will tell this story with pictures...because lord knows I have enough of them...so many in fact, that I have been sitting here deciding just how long I could keep people's attention when all I'm doing is changing outfits and changing my bathing suit. This vacation was far from being jammed packed with adventure. We had ideas of adventure to be sure, but laying around doing nothing turned out to be much more enjoyable. I figured pictures of the amazing hotel as well as the beaches and pools without my mug in them could be found on the internet, so I always like to include a person (namely myself) to jazz it up a bit.


The hotel we stayed at Me by Melia, was an absolutely fabulous hotel. Here is a view of our room and a view of our view--which I am proud to say saved us a few hundred bucks since we chose to look at water without waves (the lagoon) versus water with waves.


Now let's take a look at my bathing suit options with there respective backdrops. (the pool and the beach)



I happen to be partial to this particular shot for reasons obvious to probably everyone. This is by the pool the first day when we realized the sheer genius of renting one of these fabulous beds with thatch roofs for the day and doing nothing except laying there and occasionally taking a dip in the pool


This little blue number is the kind of suit that is only suitable for vacations and really should be worn with a coverup over it unless you are actually going in the water. It only gets worn in places not on American soil.



Me...in a bathing suit. That's about it.



You see that dot there? That's me. The ocean is competing with me here so you really can't make out the infamous red bathing suit I'm wearing. But I this the ocean deserved this great pic and I probably just ruined it.


A few shots in the infinity pool...




I never tire of taking shots in these pools because they always look so amazing. I will spare you the other 5323 that we took though...

And our one day excursion we managed to fit in out there was jet skiing. Nikkie is a bit of scaredy cat so I was the driver but I think she enjoyed herself just hanging on for dear life back there.





At night we tried to change our outfits enough to justify the overflowing suitcases we brought. But we still came home with probably five outfits unworn. Here are just a few because I'm sure I am losing your attention by now.




One thing we did realize though...is that we are a little on the mature side for Cancun nightlife. So we didn't do any spring break style partying. We just found reasons to get dressed up and enjoyed the company of mainly each other.


So that is my vacation in a nutshell. I had a great time, I was with a great friend, and I took great pictures. :)
