Rough Living

The days are flying by over here in Cabo San Lucas. We have spent countless hours laughing, enjoying the sun and eating to our hearts content.

Friday night we got ready for dinner but decided to take a group shot on our roof right as the sun was setting before we left.

We enjoyed some wine in our room while we waited for a taxi.

We went to dinner at Nick-San, a sushi restaurant in Cabo.

More wine…

We split all sorts of things….green salad:

After dinner we decided to head to The Giggling Marlin. Now…back in college, I spent a few spring breaks in Cabo. At The Giggling Marlin, there is a challenge where if you drink a certain amount of these blended drinks in an hour, you get your name on the wall. My name is still there. :)

Reliving good times. :)

We went to Cabo Wabo next for a drink and then headed back to the hotel.

Yesterday morning I rocked another bagel for breakfast.

It was another day at the pool. It’s a rough life here in Cabo.

Lunch was a repeat of yesterday too: fish tacos.

There were too perfect not to order them again.

Another photo shoot:

This picture makes me laugh. My brother set the timer on the camera, then jumped into the water to make it in the photo just in time.

We came back  to the room to get ready for dinner. We didn’t realize it at first but my husband and I had twin outfits on:

We went to La Golondrina for dinner.

It was a very unique restaurant. The menu was on the wall.

The seating was outside and it was very quaint. There were little lights in all the trees.

I ordered a glass of wine to start.

Our meals came with tostada salads.

It wasn’t that great so I only had a couple of bites. I was saving room for our table-side Caesar salad.

It did not disappoint.

Our meals also came with black bean soup.

This soup was excellent. It was very simple…just the basic flavor of black beans.

I ordered the Seared Ahi Tuna for my entree. It came with rice, beans, guacamole and teriyaki sauce….extremely random combination.

The ahi ended up being a bit overcooked. I wasn’t super excited about it so I only ate about half. My brother had this amazing pork with Veracruz sauce that I ended up sharing with him. I’d go back just for that! All in all, the value of La Golondrina was great but not everything we ate was all that great. If I ever went back, I’d order the pork.

We went to my favorite club/bar when I used to come for spring break: El Squid Roe.

I hadn’t been since college and it brought back tons of good memories!

We stayed for a couple of drinks and then went back to the hotel.

This morning I slept it and it was fabulous. I slept through breakfast so we just went right to the pool. I hate to be boring but I had the fish tacos again for lunch.

Cabo July 2012 237

The fish is so fresh and amazing here!

We all shared chips, salsa and guacamole as well. Yes that is a wine glass. Did I mention, it’s rough living over here?

My brother and his wife flew back home today. I was SO sad to see them leave. I can’t remember when I’ve had this much fun, just laughing and relaxing with family.

We are staying one more night because we have a wedding to go to tonight! Random right!?! My husband’s friend is getting married here!  Tomorrow our vacation in paradise ends and it’s back to regular life. Every good thing must come to an end right?

Have you ever been to a destination wedding? Where did you get married?


  1. Looks like a great trip, so beautiful and all that food looks amazing.

  2. Hey, if it ain't broke, don't fix it - love that you kept getting fish tacos!

    I got married on a beach in Naples, Florida - just my daughter and Mom, my step-son and PIL - it was perfect! I have never been one of those girls who wanted a big wedding.

  3. I haven't been to a destination wedding but I want to have one! Not a tropical one though more of a southern plantation or winery one. Growing up near the beach makes it a little over played!
