best vacation ever

well guys i'm finally back.  i know my blog has been a little quiet these past couple of weeks, but that's only because i was in cancun having the time of my life.  

we arrived in beautiful cancun on monday the 30th of september at around lunch time.  we had a super smooth flight, and got through customs with no issues at all!  so we hopped in our transfer bus where our amazing driver greeted us with 2 ice cold coronas.

and that's when our vacation started.
we arrived at our resort around 1:30 cancun time where we were greeted with yet another drink!  our room was ready right when we arrived and we were able to bypass all the timeshare crap.  so we headed to our room, got changed and headed straight to the pool.  we filled up our bubba mugs, took a couple of shots with some new friends that we met and at 5 pm we went to the room to take a nap and ended up passing out until the next day.  i don't know if it was the alcohol or if we were just really tired... i'm gonna go with the tired excuse :)

tuesday we woke up to clear blue skies ready to begin all over again.  this was the day that our friend adam was arriving.  we met adam at the same resort last year and kept in touch.  he's become one of my vacation besties.

after adam arrived we met an amazing group of people who we ended up playing multiple rounds of flip cup with.  it was dark by the time we headed back to our room.

wednesday was another gorgeous day in cancun!  not a cloud in the sky.  since we go to cancun alot, lt and i are on a forum for people who visit this resort quite often, so we were able to connect with people that were going at the same time we were beforehand.  wendesday was the day that most of those people were arriving.  it was great to look across the pool and see some familiar faces.
so we met our new friends april and brent, and had a blast in the pool that day!

thursday we woke up to nasty gray skies and torrential downpours :(  tropical storm karen decided to show her ugly face.  but that didn't stop us from having a great time.  we headed to the indoor bar to play beer pong and had a blast!
by around 3pm that day the skies cleared and the sun came out.  just in time for some fun in the pool with all our new friends.

by friday the skies were gorgeous again.  no more wind and rain.  the rest of our friends from the forum arrived this day.  so by this time there was a group of about 30 of us.  we were definitely the most wild group in the pool.
one of the couples from our group brought a blow up beer pong table which definitely got the party started.

and just so you know... the girls won :)

that night was white night at the resort.  everybody wears white and glow sticks.  one of my favorite nights!

saturday was another amazingly beautiful day!  we really were pretty lucky with the weather this time around.
the beer pong table made another appearance in the pool that day.
saturday was more of a slow day, because sunday was the day that we were all waiting for.
the booze cruise!

our entire group met sunday morning at the pool bar around 10 am, and then we headed to the catamaran.  this was by far our favorite day of our vacation.
i don't have any pictures of the cruise unfortunately :(
but the memories i have of this day are unforgettable.
just a bunch of friends partying together on a big boat.  definitely the most fun i've ever had!

monday was a sad day, as it was our last day in cancun.  our friend adam left this day, and the pool was pretty quiet.  probably because everyone was so hungover from the booze cruise.
but we made the most of it.
we met our new friends tiffany and andrew the day before on the cruise, and hung out with them that day.
that night was little black dress night/ 50 shades of grey night.  so we all dressed up in our best little black dresses (my hubby rocked the christian grey ripped up jeans and black t-shirt look very well)

our last night was amazing!  we danced until the early hours of the morning with all of our new friends.
and then came tuesday :(
the day we headed back to reality.
i had never been so exhausted in my life, but it was all worth it.

all in all it was one of the best vacations we have ever taken.  we are so sad that it's over.  it wasn't the beach of the pool or the tropical drinks that we miss, it's the friendships we made with some amazing people.  memories that will last a lifetime! 
we're already planning another trip to the same place with the same people next october.

so now i'm going to sip my coffee and day dream about being back in cancun.
happy monday my sweet friends :)
