Ready to drool?

Hey everybodyz, um, I'm super duper busy at work (quarter end) and Rocky is still being potty trained. So yeah, I've been a bad blogger :P Take a look at how I gained 5 actual pounds in Cancun/Playa Mujeres, actually 8, but 3 of which were from water retention..

Umm, no, that's not all our luggage, we had two carry on's, one large luggage and one duffel bag which was empty until we arrived in Cancun.
We ate lunch here everyday except for twice where we ordered fabulous room service
The view from the Grill, imagine looking at this everyday for lunch?!
As usual, felt like the Resort was just for us, tehehe
First day's lunch, I looove all the bell peppers!!!
Yummy sides
G's lunch!
I think this is C's lunch, fish tacos?
Why did I leave again?!
Wanna go back :( insert pouty face here!
Daily walk from lunch/pool/beach back to our casita
Our first dinner
amazing dessert made with bell peppers?! didn't i tell you these are my kinda peeps?! the whole thing was silky, not slimy and tasted of bell peppers...I still drool over it
Yumm delish!
It was tamarindo night and they gave out tamarindo mojito's, drink was beyond strong!
These sweet little things made with pure tamarind and brown sugar were DIVINE!!! I ate one only and ate it for 20 minutes, or else I would have eaten 10 of them and they're a natural thanks!

three total pools at this place, two of them right in front of us, I rolled in and out as I pleased :) and the servers are always walking by bringing ice cold hand towels and taking orders for food/drinks.
One of the pools out front at night, ahhh, so comforting

Believe it or not folks, that's all for day one, haha, took me two posts to pack in one day. I promise I took a lot less pics afterwards, I got so comfortable and I wasn't in the mood to pick up the camera =/ lol

I'll leave you with a pic of last years trip to Vegas, I wanna go back and play roulette and lay by the pool all day :D

vacation sounds so wonderful right now!

Ebru said...

OMG I wanna go there like right NOW!!! It's so gorgeous, loved all your pictures :) What is the name of this place you guys stayed at?? It's seriously amazing! How are you doing with the puppy?? I know it's hard work but it will pay of believe me! :) Post pix of Rocky too, I wanna see! :)

Janine aka J-Ezzy @ *La Dolce Vita* said...

Steph - If anyone deserves a vacay now, it's you!! Are you planning one soon?

Ebru - La Amada Hotel (my last post has the website and link to reviews). The puppy, oh my, he is a handful, he throws tantrums like a regular 2 year old would!!! It's quite funny, he'll eat ANYTHING in site, literally, I've seen foreign objects come out his back end, NO BUENO! I'll post pics of him today, just for you ;-)


Kate Gene said...

OMG! Why wasn't I invited to this wonderful place? Bahahaha! The pictures of the crystal clear beaches made me swoon. Also, I freaking LOVE the lawn (beach?) furniture... Who wouldn't want to lay on the beach on a bed with a pillow?!

You look great in your Vegas picture. One of Sean's conferences is going to be down there. I wonder how much work he'll actually do. ;) It'd be nice to sneak along, but for some reason I don't think his boss will want him using his corporate card to pay for a vaca for the wife.

Oh, the joys of potty training... Good luck with that! XD

BTW, all those food pictures made me hungry. Mmm...

Hope you're doing well, girlie! We'll talk soon!


Fabnay said...

I can't wait to go on vacation.
That food looks soo damn good.

Miss*Kimmy said...

That looks like such a nice resort!
And those fish tacos made me hungry =)

Couture Carrie said...

What an amazing resort!
Your pics are exquisite!
I don't know which looks more inviting... the ocean/pool or those delish meals!


Valerie said...

O my gosh! These pics are so beautiful! Looks like they came out of a magazine! Your so lucky to have gone, I wouldn't have wanted to come back either! Such a pretty post :)

Janine aka J-Ezzy @ *La Dolce Vita* said...

Kate Gene - What's up K-Gizzle!!!?? Lawn, Beach, who cares what we call it, it's furniture you never wanna leave!

Errr, wife on the corp CC, that may not work, lol. Have you been to Vegas?

Ugh, potty training sucks, it's not like he can wear a diaper and quite frankly, I'm glad he can't wear diapers, it would take longer to potty train...or maybe not...hmmm. Who cares, I don't think I could look at him wearing diapers, creeeeepy

Girl, I'm starving and I just ate my Lean Cuisine lunch, 160 calories doesn't do it =/

You too! ttys!

Fabnay - You going on vacay soon? Thanks!

Miss*Kimmy - Thank you!! The fish was fresh and caught freshly that same day every day, it was mainly grouper the whole trip.

CC - Thank you, gorgeous!!

Valerie - Thanks! I so wanna go back, like now, but I think I wanna do Hawaii next year :D

Nattie Linda said...

Wow the resort looked amazing! Lucky girl! You getting sun and eating yummy while I was getting pale in the office and eating less to look good for the summer lol jk

Anyways, glad you are back! Ps: I deleted my blog because I never wrote on it. Don't have time but I kept my user name. :)

Janine aka J-Ezzy @ *La Dolce Vita* said...

Nattie Linda - Thanks! Best vacay ever :) Going to the pool after work on weekdays? Walking in DC should give you a tan too, I was walking all day in DC on Friday and I think I darkened a bit, lol.

:( Sad face!!! Hope you restart the blog soon, babe!!!


Young, Fabulous, and Pregnant said...

Awww! How fun! Your pics look amazing. What kind of camera did you use?

Mae Manahan said...

I love the view!!! I followed you already, please follow me too. Take care! See you around! :)

Kate Gene said...

LOL! I think Sean and I should buy one way tickets to that hotel you guys stayed at. XD It looks so fancy and relaxing! Yeah, we've been to Vegas three times. I love going down there! We don't go down there to party, though... Sean likes to play poker and I like to shop! Their are some amazing shows down there, too. (OMG... I spelled "there" wrong. I am so tired today! LOL!)

BAHAHAHA! A dog in a diaper? I'd love to see that! My best friend's dog thinks our living room floor is a giant toilet. Maybe I should pick up a few for her! LOL! I'm glad that you guys were able to get a dog. I know how badly you missed your cat!

One of these days, my lazy behind will get on GTalk! Do you still go on there?


KGizzle <--- Freakin' awesome nickname!

Kristin said...

OMG, what fabulous photos. That resort looks incredible!

Giulia Ciccarelli said...

Ciao sono Giulia di Starbucks and Chanel 2.55 volevo avvertirti che il nome del mio blog è cambiato in The girl of bows sono nel tuo blogroll ti chiedo gentilmente di cambiare link. Grazie.Baci

Janine aka J-Ezzy @ *La Dolce Vita* said...

Young, Fab and Pregnant - Thanks! Nikon D3000

Mae Manahan - I'll check your page out! Thanks!

KGizzle - You know, I thought I would wanna party in Vegas when I got there, but all I wanted to do was shop and G just wanted to play poker! We only saw one show, it was a musical impersonator show, MJ had just died a couple weeks before and there was an MJ impersonator in the show, it was kinda cool to see it. Except...the impersonator was too fat to look like MJ!

Yeah, get some puppy pads, they actually use them! Rocky is still learning a lot, he has good moments and bad ones, lol. Thank you, I still miss my cat, but Rocky is amazing!

Seriously dudette, get onto Gtalk!! I'm on their everyday (I spelled it wrong too ;-)).

Let me know when you've booked the one way trip!


Kristen - Thank you!

Mariel Torres said...

Janine aka J-Ezzy @ *La Dolce Vita* said...

Mariel Torres - thank you!!

Marcy said...

How is potty training going? My son is having a little struggle! I love your verses at the bottom! Proverbs 31:30 I was just reading that in a book the other day!
