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!

What was your favorite Christmas moment this year? Did you get the chance to spend time with your loved ones?

    That cardboard tree? LOVE it!
    I need to get a new tree, my fake one is my mom’s old (old, old) one. This one is definitely in the running for next year.

    Playa del Carmen is loads of fun. The beaches are pretty and the town is very welcoming and walkable–no highrises, and lots of little shops and restaurants along pedestrian-only Fifth Avenue.

    Sounds like a good time was had by all!

    I remember relishing the sunshine when we went to Disney World at Christmas time, though it did feel very odd not being at home nor with family for Christmas.
