I went on a little vacation this weekend. Where, you ask? Well, let me just show you.
This is where I went

And this is how I got there...

Pretty amazing, right? I was lucky enough to be invited to spend President's Day weekend in beautiful Punta Mita, Mexico. My friend Courtney has an amazing house down there, and her dad had room on the plane to bring some friends down. It was pretty much the perfect weekend... We left early Saturday morning and arrived to a perfect day. About 80 degrees, cloudless and beautiful. We spent our time lounging in the pool, riding jetskis, boogie boarding, and just laying out on the private beach. It's truly paradise down there! They have this bed right on the beach that is the perfect reading/napping spot... I was in heaven. We left Utah in the middle of a blizzard, so it made being on the beach THAT much sweeter. Oh yeah, and they have these people at the house that just bring you all this amazing food. Smoothies, steak and chicken quesadillas, chips with fresh salsa and guacamole, and chocolate shakes. You ask for it, they make it. Did I mention that I was in HEAVEN? And to have some of my best friends there just capped it off. So much fun... I mean, who just jets off (literally) to Mexico for the weekend? I DO! Holler. Here are some pics from my incredible weekend. I love my life!

P.S. Yes mom, I did use sunscreen.
P.P.S. Mexico has the best french toast. Mmmm.
P.P.P.S. I just realized this is a lot of pictures. Whoops... enjoy.

Who is the brunette that went with you? Is her last name Kurth? She looks like one of the Kurth daughters - they live out here by us and Taylor is good friends with their youngest Kenzie.
