NO WORK, ALL FUN
this was definitely my favorite photo from the trip. these hammocks were right outside of our hotel and they were calling our names the whole time.
i went to mexico with my boyfriend and my two friends emma & ryan. it ended up being such a perfect trip…and most of all it was easy! cabo is a short 2 hour flight from los angeles which is really nice.
i did a little post when i was there and told you about mama’s…i always ate there with my family as a kid so it was really special to be able to share this place with my friends as well. simple food, spicy salsa and fresh ingredients. we loved it so much, we ate there three days in a row.
another amazing food spot is maro’s shrimp house! they have local cuisine & some of the best shrimp & lobster i’ve ever had. all for 16 bucks. i can’t stop thinking about how delicious that meal was…
we went on a tequila tasting tour with grayline los cabos (we also went on a glass bottom boat ride!) and i spotted this little plant sitting against this ridiculously colorful pink wall.
the tour also took us to a bunch of the beautiful surfing beaches (my boyfriend loves to surf!) we also spent part of the day hunting for mexican blankets that we could bring home and hang in the windows of our new house. success photo here.
if you watch the video below, you will see it took me about 7 minutes to actually get situated in this hammock. all while looking like a total fool. it was pretty hilarious. (and how pretty are those color choices on the hammocks?!)
it’s hard to completely take off work because i really enjoy my job…but a balcony office was a pretty nice change.
we rented scooters for a few days and rode all around town. i was actually pretty scared to do it at first, but by the end of the trip i was loving it. i haven’t seen my guy that happy in a long while, so it was definitely worth getting over a little fear.
this month i decided i was going to take care of myself. worry a little less, take some more time to myself, and be more spontaneous. my life is really scheduled out and i tend to get really wrapped up in stress…so it was nice to just book these plane tickets randomly one day and let the rest work itself out. thank you hotels.com for the awesome room with a view & also to grayline los cabos for showing me around parts of cabo that i had never seen before! like i said, i spent years going to cabo with my family over the summer and it holds a great spot in my heart.
oh! and the video. emma and I shot some super 8 on our iphones (you can get the app here) and i put a little video together of all of our days there. and that boppy song? that’s all thanks to sharing an office with the best dj (the flashdance!) who always gets wonderful music stuck in our heads. this brenton wood song was played over and over on our trip…
thanks for following along on our trip! -bri
