Cabo for Lil Gomez!

Made it to Hawaii after three days and nights in Cabo! It was soooo much fun and now I'm definitely ready for some R&R in HI! Thanks, girls for all the laughs and to Christine: love you and can't wait for your wedding! Here are some pics I took and/or stole from the other girls. Seriously, way too much fun. This mama is tired!

Saying buh-bye to the husband ♥

 Flight was delayed for four hours on the runway due to thunderstorms. My feet were so swollen and gross after!

 Pretty nice reward!

 The bride-to-be and I! Plus Babyshoe!

 Some of the mischief

 Long lost friends from Seattle! So good to see you, Adam, and meet your lady love! 

 Sorbet poolside. All inclusive = eat all day

 Boat ride to El Arco and Lover's Beach

 Lots of hangovers in one picture

 The bride with her sisters!
 Last breakfast together
 Love this chick! Thanks for the invite and see you in HI for your BIG DAY! ♥

 Got delayed in LA for 6 hours but met Barry Weiss from Storage Wars, so it was alright ;)
He's my favorite.

Sidenote: bought our first baby thing from H&M the other day.
It's all really happening!

Got NOTHIN' planned for Hawaii except mellow downtime with all the homies :) Can't wait to see everyone and to eat my face off. 

Thank you for reading and have a wonderful week!

Babymoon Part III: Firenze and Roma!

Last installment: Florence and Rome! The art we saw here was to-die-for: Michaelangelo's David, La Pieta, and the Sistine Chapel, Raphael's School of Athens, and so much more. LOVE. Did y'all know I was one studio art class away from graduating with an art history minor? Not that I remember much or can dish Dali or Goya with you or anything. But I appreciate art, even after 16 days of it.

Anyhoo, here's what we saw and did in Florence.

 The Duomo 

 Ponte Vecchio


 Dinner in an off-the-beaten-path square
The sun set at around 8:30 every night, so we hardly saw night time (we're old and go to bed early, a far cry from vacations past!)

 Florence from Piazza Michaelangelo

 Brett yelling "Monkey! Monkey woman!" at me and doing a monkey dance from across the square. This guy.

 What? It was bright.

 Selfie in our hotel room. So much pasta in there and a tiny little baby too, the size of an avocado.

 Now in Rome, the Spanish Steps.

 At the Vatican

 St. Peter's Basilica in Vatican City

 The very crowded Trevi Fountain. 
By this time, we were pretty sick of crowds. LOL

 An impressive sarcophagus

"Are we done looking at art yet?"

 The Colosseum! Amazefest!

 Love this guy

 More gelato!

 The Pantheon at night under a full moon

 The Mouth of Truth (I love Roman Holiday!)

 More pizza! Husband is actually THRILLED.

 Our last meal of pear salad, gnocchi, spaghetti, and of course gelato!

 Quite the finale!

On the bus going to the airport! We don't want to sit on a plane for 14 hours!

It actually felt GREAT to come home and get back to some sort of routine. This trip was SO FUN but also a lot of work! And the walking killed us. LOL. I would say as far as relaxing trips go, this one is not high on our list. I'm glad we didn't do this for our honeymoon and lounged around in Thailand and Cambodia instead. LOL. That's just us.

It was super romantic though! Thank you again, Brett, you are definitely my best travel buddy. I was a whiny, grumpy, tired, hungry preggers chick and you handled me like a champ! We learned that afternoon naps, silly jokes, and frequent snacks are MUSTS, LOL :) When's our next trip together? ;)

Happy Memorial Day Weekend, y'all!
