Wordless Wednesday: Holidays Edition! {Linky}


This year we celebrated Christmas twice…

We spent a week in Mexico last week and had an early Christmas with family there and then we had our own Christmas celebration at home yesterday.

Here are some of my favorite photos from our trip, we stayed at the RIU Yucatan resort in Playa del Carmen, so beautiful there. Our 2-year-old even got to dance to Gangnam Style on stage one night (video here), lots of fun!

I also had a chance to finally wear my bikini from La Vie en Rose,  love it SO much!

And here are some of my favorite photos from our second Christmas:


Our Christmas tree is the Cascades Eco-Friendly Cardboard Christmas Tree I reviewed last year.


So thankful to have my little family and to be able to celebrate with them. Quality family time is always the best during the holidays!
