DIY Great Gatsby Outfit

Happy Wednesday everyone!  This weekend was nothing short of crazy!  I drove home for my Uncle’s wedding and also brought home another car load of things to move home.  I spent a lot of the weekend working on organizing and putting away and just getting ready for the big move in May.  Then, we had an April snowstorm on Sunday night and Monday morning.  I ended up staying home for another day because of it! But life is back to normal now and I can’t wait to share with you all about the wedding!

Excursions in Cancun

Happy Monday everyone!  I want to start with an apology.  Ever since traveling home a week ago, I’ve just felt a little off.  I felt like I couldn’t get back into my routine and the days seemed to fly past without having a moment to breathe and catch up with all my chores.  I finally feel like I’m getting back to normal this week, so here I am still posting about Cancun a week later.

Y’all this trip was incredible so I am really excited to share with you about excursions today. Continue reading “Excursions in Cancun”

Initial Impressions of Cancun

*Due to technical difficulties, this wasn’t posted on Friday like I intended.  This will replace the post I planned for yesterday which will be posted tomorrow instead!  So sorry for the inconvenience!

Our flight got in last evening after it was already dark. Because of this, I wasn’t able to take a ton of the beauty in. But there was one thing I knew for sure. The weather was glorious. Coming from cold, snowy Michigan, I felt like I walked off the plane and into heaven.

The first thing we did was check out our room. It’s honestly not the greatest room, but also it’s just somewhere to sleep. There is a mini bar that is restocked every other day and a balcony that overlooks the ocean and the lagoon. To add to our… interesting first impression, this little creature greeted us on the bed.

Despite this, we set out to explore what we could! We snuck into the dinner buffet shortly before it closed and we’re able to get some food into our stomachs. We walked around the hotel to get a feel for the place and to find different locations. We sat out by the pool and relaxed before heading upstairs to bed.

The bed honestly wasn’t very comfortable. However I woke up to some beautiful views on the balcony.

I went to the little gym this morning to go for a brisk walk on the treadmill. It was awesome being able to look out to the ocean there.

The hotel itself, Riu Caribe, is beautiful. The lobby, where I’m sitting writing this, is open and breezy. The hallways have window holes so everything is fresh and open.

There is beautiful tropical artwork around the hotel and the pool and beach are lovely!

I am loving it here so far! I did a demo dive in the pool today and plan to go on some excursions the next few days! I’ll be posting more on Monday!  **edit: Wednesday due to technical difficulties**

Hope everyone is having an awesome day!
