Currently Crushing + Desperately Missing: Our Mexican Adventure

Hi Friends!

It sure seems like it’s been awhile. Sorry about that. Since we last spoke, errr blogged together, lots has gone down! Irina got hitched in Mexico and myself, along with about 50 other close friends and fam got to witness it. I even had the honor of being a Bridesmaid 🙂 

I admit it, we’ve been home a little over a week now. But have you ever heard of something called “post-vacation depression”? It’s like a real thing and it’s what I’ve been struggling to deal with. If you’ve ever experienced it, you defs know what I mean. But like, we had so much fun and made tons of memories so Irina and I wanted to share with you the highlights and why we are crushing so hard on our Mexican adventure!

Enjoy!


Here are some much appreciated Margaritas during check-in.

We stayed at the Valentin Imperial Maya Resort.


 Here’s Irina and I with friends drankin’ in the pool.


Here’s some Mexican wildlife.

Still unsure as to what exactly these little guys are. I do know they are super cute and I wanted to take this one home and name him Victor.


Here’s a sick catamaran excursion we took.


Here’s Irina and I so tired after the sick catamaran excursion we took.


Here’s Irina with two bridesmaids looking gorg in the plaza.


Here’s a pic of all the girls who made the trip from our hometown.

This was the night before the big day. A friend coined this Irina’s “Kim in Paris” moment. Perfect. If you don’t get the reference click here and see why it’s basically the same thing. Amiright?


Here’s Irina’s wedding hair that she executed herself.


Here’s the bridal garb! Black + White for dramatic effect.

Okay last one dancing. It was like really good music.


Here’s a Polaroid of the now husband + wife!

Ya know, it was an epic vacation. A prefect mix of relaxation, friends, activities and most importantly – a kick ass wedding. It’s sad that it has to be over. At least we will always have the memories. And the Polaroids. And the social media posts. And the Snapchats. And the profesh pictures. So really, we can like relive it whenever we want!


Until Next Time!
