Welp, I am officially traveled out. (For this month, anyway)
This past weekend, I traveled to Puerto Vallarta for my dear friend Leah's bachelorette party. I was a little nervous going in because I didn't know most of the people going, but I can say now that I had the best time. Puerto Vallarta is ridiculously gorgeous and the girls (and guy) on the trip were hilarious and so much fun. We all got along insanely well. Check out some of the pictures I took below.
One of the days we were there we all took a booze cruise excursion. We ventured out on a boat to Marrietas Island and went snorkeling, kayaking, and paddle boarding. Then they served us lunch, we learned about some birds, and drank some Tecate and Margaritas.
*The excursion was booked through Vallarta Adventures!
The last night, we braved the cartel-ridden streets (I kid, I kid... or do I?) and went into town. We ate at a delicious (seriously, so good) restaurant called La Leche and then went clubbing it up at Mandela's. Interesting tid-bit about La Leche--last year, El Chapo's son was kidnapped by a rival cartel while he was eating dinner there. Equal parts awesome and terrifying am I right??
I learned 3 things from this trip.
1. Meeting new people is sometimes scary but often ends with a shit ton of laughter and great times.
2. Puerto Vallarta is absolutely worth visiting, and I will definitely go again. (btw, we stayed at the Grand Fiesta Americana Hotel and it was the bees knees)
3. I am now at the age where I require naps if partying multiple nights in a row.
-Incase you were curious, you can check out the video of the kidnapping at La Leche below! I guess I should note that they released him go about a week later.
-This has to be the song of the summer. Or it is in PV at least!
-The next book on my list!
The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin
-This movie had my head snapping back, my mouth dropped open to my chest, and multiple "WTF?" spewing from my lips. Christopher Plummer's acting is on point as well.
-I wore this tropical dress to both Mexico-bound Bachelorette parties I attended this year. Its comfrotable, cute, and has pockets! Weeee pockets! And yeah, haters, I got it off Amazon (I have a problem).
Alrighty, that's all I've got for today! Have any of you taken a great vacation this summer? What's on your "favorite" list right now?
Until next time,
