Shhhh… I have a confession. I spent all summer in a long sleeve shirt with SPF 30 sunblock on to avoid tan lines. Yes, crazy me gardened all summer with a long sleeve shirt on. Mr. Snow Pea thought he was going to lose me one hot weekend and gently chastised me for letting my vanity take over. So you can imagine my excitement as we landed in Cancun where I could finally break free of the wedding and made contact with the UV rays! Everyone was right. The honeymoon is the BEST part about a wedding!
At the airport, we must have seen over 15 newlywed couples. I counted at least 5 brides who still had her wedding hair intact! It was so cute. They all had “Mr & Mrs” t-shirts or something to that effect. They all must have registered for the same dang red luggage set at Macy’s as we did. We all had a similar set!
As soon as we arrived in Playa Del Carmen, we got changed, walked around and got something to eat. We literally spent everyday just eating, sleeping, laying on the beach and lounging around. That’s all we really wanted to do and it was amazing!
The Best Fish Tacos ever!
We stayed with our friends’ in their penthouse. This is the view from our bedroom overlooking 5th Avenue.
This is where our friend works selling gorgeous properties to Americans in Playa.
No trip would be complete without stopping at Walmart!

Seeing this book was a good sign!
Drinking some more
One day we took a break from lounging around and took a day trip to Chichen Itza. This was something I really wanted to do. Mayans were considered the “first architects” which I studied in my History of Architecture classes, so I almost feel obligated to check it out as part of my “job”. To be honest, it’s worth seeing, but I wasn’t that impressed. Maybe I was just hot and sticky.
We spent the last day doing some more lounging around and eating.
“Why do men marry bitches?” This was sitting at a table at a coffee shop. I thought it was funny.
Time to go home and back to reality!
