Hey, everyone! I’ve been a bit MIA for the past few days. Work got crazy and then I got sick, so it’s been crappy all around. I’m still sick, but I sound worse than I feel, so hopefully I’ll be all cured soon. I did almost nothing of note this weekend, especially since I worked on Saturday, so this will be a super quick post. Oh, and Happy St. Patrick’s Day! I’ve done nothing to celebrate my Irish-ness, but I’ll wear green today, so that’s something.
I got one picture all weekend, which was of Riley’s pizza Saturday night:
This one was a big winner! He used sauteed kale, prosciutto, and three cheeses- fontina, fresh mozzarella, and ricotta. This went into my top five for sure. I also love that he made it pretty since he knew I’d take a picture.
I’ll be needing to cut back a tad on the pizza for the next few weeks, though (I mean, within reason..), because we finally booked our vacation! I spent the whole weekend coughing, sneezing, and stalking vacation websites for hours on end, and it finally paid off.
For our anniversary in May, we’ll be going back to the spot where we got married- Playa Del Carmen, Mexico! I’m so so so so excited. Not only am I in desperate need of a vacation, but I can’t wait to be back on that beach. It was the perfect spot for our wedding, and it’s an AMAZING place to spend a week. The water is so crystal clear and the beach so clean I even got in the water in my wedding dress last time!
If you ever have a destination wedding (which you should), I highly recommend doing a trash-the-dress session the next day. It’s so much fun and a great way to showcase your gorgeous surroundings. I can’t get enough of that water!

Just thinking about being back in Mexico has me so excited. We’ll be spending 6 nights at an all-inclusive over our anniversary week. Having a light at the end of the tunnel that is admission season has perked up my mood immensely!
Having a vacation booked means I’ve got 7 weeks to get bikini ready. Luckily, I haven’t been a total sloth all winter, so I’m not really worried. I’ll probably make some diet tweaks and step it up in the toning department (looking at you, arms!), but I don’t change my habits that much just because bikini season is on its way. I think if you keep up mostly healthy habits all year long you’ll always be in fighting shape. That said, my fake tan is definitely going to need some work between now and then….
I’m off to work for the day, but I’ll be back to normal tomorrow with some healthy food and workouts to share!
Where are you going for vacation this year?
Do you change your routine when you have a vacation coming up?
