Cancun - Mini-Vacay (pics heavy)

SUNDAY - before the butt-crack of dawn!
We got on the road at 2:30am.. to get to the airport. Our flight left from Washington, DC at 6am, so we had to get an early start for an international flight.. we were sooo tired, but excited for the vacation.

BFF Courtney drove us to the airport

The flight was ok.. but I was ready to get off that plane.

First stop.. Miami.. but not for long!

Next stop... CANCUN, MEXICO..paradise
dress - Rainbow
shoes - Ross

Guess who finally got their earrings back, lol! .. you think she was a little excited???
When we arrived at the hotel it was breathtaking. The whole experience was soo awesome! And the staff was so welcoming. We grabbed some lunch then checked into our room. We tore our traveling clothes off and jumped into our bathing suits and went straight to the ocean!

tankini - Avenue

ofcourse we did the ceremonial beach photo shoots, lol

and I was acting silly ...

then we had drinks by the pool
MONDAY - Shopping ofcourse
We were up bright and early to get to shopping. I really tried not to over do it.. but its just soo hard, lol!

dress - Lane Bryant (another super score for $9.99)
shoes - Ross

we left the mall and headed straight back to the water.. this time - the pool!

and we stayed until it was dark.. and the pool lights came on, lol.
TUESDAY - Flea Market finds
Yup.. more shopping. I haggled real good with the vendors at the flea market and I scored some serious silver and gold items. For this trip, jewelry was my weakness.. next trip I'll focus on leather goods.

dress - Ross
accessories - Avenue
shoes - Ross

BFF Courtney is wearing an eShakti dress. Isnt it cute on her?

look what I scored - YUP.. a gold pair of hoops. Exact same ones as the BFFs!! I was sooo excited to find these.
Aaahhh, dinner. We had an awesome dinner at the Argentine Steakhouse. Can you say deeelliiissshhh!! mm mm mmmmm.

WEDNESDAY - Traveling home
Sad to leave but we had to. Next time, we are definitely adding an extra day.

shirt - Lane Bryant
I bought this shirt almost 2 years ago to wear on my honeymoon. Can you believe that this was the first time that I wore it, and I had to pop off the tag... I really liked it and I should have been wearing it more often.

shoes - Avenue

I got the BFF a few dresses from the Lane Bryant sale too!
