Sand, Sea and Palm Trees, Please?!

I need a serious vacation, people and it must have the following requirements:
Sand
Crystal Clear Water
Palm Trees
Fruity Drinks with Little Umbrellas
A Hammock
Sunset Cruises
And Moonlight Breezes

Sounds pretty good, right?  Well, My Friday's Fancies with{av} at {long distance loving} got me in the mood once again for something spectacular, a beach bound vacay!


Unfortunately, I am not the biggest world traveler, but I will say that I have hit the white sandy beaches of Mexico a time or two and it is my most sought after escape.  Our  favorite place to visit is Cabo San Lucas.  Have you ever been?  If not, you need to make travel plans ASAP.  It is a serious piece of heaven.  Every time we go, I seriously don't want to leave...I have Mexico withdrawals for days once we come back to reality.  They have the best off-shore fishing, unbelievable whale watching, perfect temps year round and of course beautiful beaches.  And the people there are so friendly.  They will seriously make you feel like royalty.

So, this week's My Friday's Fancies theme is "Let's Fly Away".  So, I immediately thought of what else, a beach theme.  This is what my Cabo attire would consist of.  In my opinion, you don't need anything else packed in your bag. 

I need a vacation


All of the clothing items above can be found at Target.  And if you have been reading my blog, you know that I love this place and spend way too much time and money there! 

I wanted to share some of my pictures from our last trip to Cabo.  Pulling these out made me smile, but also a little sad because I want to go back there RIGHT NOW and I am stuck behind my desk today.  At least I can look at them and day dream.  Hopefully, we will make it back there soon.  Hope to see you there!!

The resort we always stay at.  It's our friends' time share. Amazing, right?!
Look at that water and clear sky!
The Hubs and I para-sailing.  I was scared out of my mind!  What a rush!
Just relaxing...not a care in the world!
Are you ready to go yet?
Getting ready to set sail and do some whale watching.
Yes, I actually took this photo...picture perfect, right?

Okay, who is ready to book their flights?  
What is your favorite vacation spot?  Do you like swim suits or ski suits? 

Happy Friday, Friends!

Cheers to sand, seas and palm trees!

Those are some great pictures Shanna! I've only been to Mexico once and it was very beautiful. These days we practically live in England. My husband is from Lowestoft and we go twice a year (at least) to visit with family and friends. In fact we are going at the end of March.... srsly need a vacation today. LOL

Those pictures are gorgeous! One of my favorite vacations was to Cancun, we also love cruising! We branched out for our honeymoon and went to Fiji, and as beautiful and serene as it was there, we really love Mexico and the Caribbean.
