Playa del Carmen

Hi all!

Wow… how great is it to come back and see all the wonderful guest blogs and all the great comments? I feel like my little blog was so well taken care of! Thanks to all my wonderful guest bloggers once, again, you ladies were totally fabulous!

I am NOT happy to be back. It is currently 37 degrees here in River Falls, WI. When I woke up this morning it was 59 degrees in our apartment. Gross.

Playa del Carmen was amazing. I burned like crazy on the 2nd day which is BIZARRE because I never burn. I went from using SPF 15 to 30 to 50! The sun was killer, that’s for sure.

Our resort, the Royal Haciendas, gets a total A+ in my book. It was gorgeous, with great pools, a fabulous view of the ocean, and one of the best staffs I have ever experienced. Our room was actually like an apartment, with a small kitchen, living room, two bedrooms and two bathrooms, big balcony with whirlpool and a smaller balcony.

I think my favorite part of the trip was going to Carlos and Charlie’s for dinner on St. Patrick’s Day. It was HYSTERICAL! I don’t know how the staff does it, they must just go home exhausted. At one point my dad tried to order something without guacamole and our server through his pad down and walked away. Dustin and I got up and danced and did a conga line with some people. One of the servers was POLE DANCING. They were all nuts!

Anyway, we still have tons of unpacking to do and we’re tired and cold. So here are some pics to tide ya over! Enjoy!

Of course a foot picture

On night D and I tried to play Bullshit Pyramid. Only we didn’t realize we were playing with Pinochle cards. Epic fail.

We took my parents out to dinner to thank them for the trip. D and me at dinner.

    Well… I can't say "welcome back" like everyone else, because I'm near Playa! So… bye?

    We love going there on day trips… the beaches and restaurants are the best. Glad you had fun!

    P.S. How can you burn? It's kinda cold right now! 70 – 80 degrees Haha
