Since I spent all day yesterday trying to get back to VA (I say trying because there was a delay at the airport that took us forever to get back home), so I’m starting my work week today as if it was Monday. 😉 There’s a LOT to catch up as I’m diving into a pretty crazy week full throttle, but I’m going to make it happen. 🙂 Can I rewind time and go back to Mexico?! I heard when traveling somewhere, you really need a full two weeks to hit relaxation mode. I cannot even imagine what two full weeks out of work feels like, but hopefully, Alex and I will experience that for our honeymoon later this year!!! 😉 I’m so grateful for the little time away I had this past weekend, though! I took some time to read, lay out in the sunshine, and clear my head from everything on my to-do list. I cannot wait to see my list check off as the weeks continue to pass by! Anyways, check out what I’ve been up to the past week. 🙂
THE SWEETER MEMORIES FROM THIS PAST WEEK
This exciting news!!! I have a contract on my house! AH!!! An inspection happened over the weekend which means things are happening over here at the Messick residence! But I also know that anything can happen — I will be accepting backup offers in case this contract falls through. But hopefully, everything will go as according to plan!
I LOVE MY COUPLES!!!
Seriously. I couldn’t love my “job” more!!! Last week, Rhett, Caroline, and I had to hike down a steep pathway to get to our destination and Caroline did it not only in a dress but in heels! You go, girl!!!! Love my adventurous couples. 🙂 And couples who love tequila in honor of being in Mexico! HA! I got to hang out with Ashely and Taylor for their pre-wedding celebration, and it was great getting to know the entire fiesta crew before photographing them the next day. They were a FUN bunch!!!!!
CINCO DE MAYO IN MEXICO!
I love fun couples and I really love couples who love to travel! Taylor and Ashley had a Cinco de Mayo wedding in Cancun — A dream come TRUE!!! Give me all of the Pina Coladas, Guacamole, and tacos, please!!! 😉 It was so lovely to have a little relaxation time mixed in! This hammock was my favorite spot at the Royalton Riviera Maya!
The rooms were incredible!!! Somehow, I got lucky enough to have a complimentary upgrade! I thought there was a mix up upon check in!!! <3 It was a fantastic experience!!!
I don’t know how many grams of sugar I drank/ate (I didn’t hold back on the Pina Coladas because Alex told me to drink some Pinas for him — So I took that literally ;)), but this scale was not welcomed in the room!!! HA!
Of COURSE, I had to have a margarita in honor of being in Mexico, Cinco de Mayo weekend! But I quickly changed back to the Pinas. 😉 HA! And even though I took some time to relax, you better believe I kept up with an active lifestyle over the weekend! Whew! Taylor and Ashley’s wedding was SOOOOO much fun to photograph (just wait till you see the fiesta!! HA!), but I was exhausted by the end of the night! Especially seeing the numbers on my Apple Watch!
I was in fruit, guacamole, cheese heaven every single day. YUM. Also, I finished reading the Meaning of Marriage while I was in Cancun … SO SO SO GOOD. Whether you are single, engaged, or married, it is hands down one of the best books I could’ve read going into my marriage with Alex. <3 Next book on my list? Present over Perfect!!!
ALEX AND I ARE GETTING MARRIED NEXT MONTH!!!!
AH!!! I’m soooooo so soooooo excited! And SO ready! Well, I’m ready to marry Alex but as far as my to-do list before the big day is pretty far off. 😉 HA! This past week, though, I had my first dress fitting!!!! It’s starting to feel SURREAL. CRAZY!!
THE BITTER MEMORIES FROM THIS PAST WEEK
NOT ENOUGH HOURS IN THE DAY!
Time feels as though it’s against me right now, but I’m pushing because I know it won’t be like this for long. 🙂
So many pretty photos are coming to the blog this week!!! STAY TUNED!!!
