Best Date Ever :)

January 29, 2012

Happy Monday Everyone! 
Today I'm participating in the fabulous valentines challenge in which the topic is:
Best Date Ever!

I happen to have so many great dates with the love of my life, but after much consideration I decided on the date in which we had the most pictures of course :)

Where might this date of taken place?
No other than an amazing getaway to Playa Del Carmen, Mexico!

Isn't this view Amazing?
Eric and I have spent the last two summers at the same resort in Mexico because we absolutely love the total relaxation that overcomes you while you are there. It's amazing!
What's even better though is that our anniversary [Year's of being together] falls on June 21 and that happened to be the week we went the first time to Mexico!
What a lucky coincidence that was because we certainly didn't plan it.
 Anyways let's talk about this date.
It was romantic.
It was perfect.
It was a dream come true.

If your not familiar with how resort specialty restaurants work, you book the nights you want to have those dinners the moment you arrive. If you don't book dinners than you are left eating at the buffet, which is still good, but not as delightful! This specific resort has 6 specialty restaurants.
So there we are booking a lovely Italian dinner for none else than our 2 year anniversary. 
How cool is that?


Beachy & Fabulous!
My favorite combination!

The Italian dinner was perfect. It was formal [as formal as a beach town gets], yet had a very relaxed environment. It was the perfect romantic date with the mariachi band playing music specially for our table. The food was fabulous and the wine was great. However, I'm sure I didn't have much wine, rather I was probably the one sucking down the Pina Coladas. They are tastier.  This was also the first time that either of us tried calamari, let me tell you, it was delicious. Everything was fantastic!
 I mean come on we were in paradise, on a date, on the day of our anniversary, with none other than ourselves. It doesn't get much better than that!

                    Eric and I before Dinner.                           Didn't I tell you I was drinking Pina Coladas
                      We look so young.                                      After our date strolling down the beach.

"And now these three remain: faith, hope, and love. But the greatest of these are Love"
