Our trip to Mexico did two important things:
     1. Let us nap during the day
     2. Strengthened my resolve to have our family picture taken with a mariachi band

We stayed at the Hyatt Ziva in Cabo, where we were relaxed and filled with pineapple. There were nice pools, beaches, tacos, fruit. It was your standard beachy resort vacation EXCEPT on one of the nights there was a party on the beach with a mariachi band and then fireworks. I love mariachi bands so much. One of our longest running jokes is how bad I want to take a family picture with a mariachi band.

I originally thought we should do this with a marching band... and we would stand in the middle of them? But Chris informed me I was being crazy, and I could never talk him into that. But if we have a Cinco de Mayo party or something? And happened to take a picture with the mariachi band? Okay, it’s weird, but it’s happening. Also? I’m not totally crazy here. Somebody at J Crew had a similar idea not that long ago. Sure it’s a jazz band, so it’s not the exact same thing, but it’s close enough. We’re doing it. 


^^ same ^^ same ^^


  1. You are seriously one of the most beautiful pregnant women I have ever seen. I'm so excited for you and I think you should totally take these family pictures!

    1. Ash you are too nice. And I promise you will receive our mariachi Christmas card if that family picture actually happens.

  2. that mariachi band with our family drawn in is the absolute best thing I've ever seen.
