Wedding Wednesday | The Perfect Honeymoon

Happy Wedding Wednesday loves! Obviously I'm having a slow start to my week as we just got back from a weeklong Honeymoon in the Mexican Caribbean on Sunday. It was seriously so amazing and relaxing waking up to the ocean right beside us and just relaxing by the pool whenever we felt like it. Also eating anything and everything around us, including ordering room service every single night...hello all inclusive!!

Get ready for a serious photo dump!


Gorgeous island we flew over before landing (we later visited that very island!)


The relaxation has started!


First day we hit up the pool.


Enjoying a relaxing concert beachside at the resort.

Hanging out by the beach with my babe.


Had to spell our hashtag in the sand :)!


Visited Chichen Itza which is one of the new 7 wonders of the world. It was a beautiful tour and we learned so much history about the Mayan culture and lifestyle. 


Had to get a selfie too!


Ik Kil Cenote that I got to swim in, such an amazing experience even though it was jam packed with tourists!


Ready for a whole day of sailing the Gulf of Mexico!


Ready for my very first time snorkeling in the ocean, eek!!!


Headed to Isla Mujeres on our catamaran!


Making good use of that selfie stick at the looking point on Isla Mujeres, such a beautiful sight and pretty waters!


Had to snap another selfie with my babe and the gorgeous blue waters of the Mexican caribbean behind us!


Hibachi dinner with my babe at the resort!


Enjoying the sunshine in the pool outside our room!


More pool time which was much needed!


This was probably my favorite spot to be laying, right in front of the pool with the ocean not too far behind it!


Enjoying time in the ocean!


Our last night in Mexico :(!


Pretty moonlight shining on the resort on our last night.


Outside our beautiful resort as we wait to leave paradise!

If you made it all the way at the bottom, go get yourself a drink if you haven't started already!

Overall it was an amazing honeymoon and first trip as husband and wife. We explored, swam, tried new things, ate a bunch of food and most of all relaxed...it's just what the doctor ordered after a hectic year and a half of planning for our wedding!!

If you have any questions about our all inclusive resort, what to see or do in Mexico, etc..leave them in the comments below!

Wedding Wednesday | The Grah Shanti

Happy Wedding Wednesday loves! I am so so sorry for being super MIA on the blog. I'm gonna say what I say every time and that is that I'm gonna try my darndest to get better at this whole balance, but I make no promises.

 This week my parents have been here so I am soaking up every minute I can with them! We also have a little luncheon that we are hosting here in Houston this Saturday for our family/friends that couldn't attend the wedding. And finally we have our honeymoon that we leave for on Monday!!!!!!!!

To say I'm a little excited is totally an understatement! Today I am going to share with y'all some pictures from our very first event for the wedding. This event is called a Grah Shanti and basically it's asking for the Lord Ganesh to bless us (the couple) and the wedding events. This is usually done separately with our respective families, hence why you won't see A in any of the pictures :)! I'll let the pictures do the talking now!

Me with all of my cousins, love them to pieces!! 




 Getting blessed by my aunts.




The painting has started! 

 The final product! It is said that when a bride gets turmeric paste spread on her skin, she will glow for the wedding day! 


My besties made sure I was hella glowing that day, my face says it all!! 










 My aunt hand made all of my jewelry using real flowers, it smelled amazing!


My bestie for the restie! 


Family over everything!

Wedding Wednesday | Livestream

Hey love bugs! I was super close to not posting anything for tonight, but fret not I have something albeit small.

I was appreciative that our videographer hired someone extra to do a livestream of our wedding and reception for our family members who were unable to attend or in another country. It was worth the extra money because not only did our loved ones get to watch the whole ceremony, we have 30 days to go back and watch the videos again. I thought it would be fun to share the link with you guys if you wanted to go and watch the livestream video.

Still waiting on those pictures to get in, so until then, you can watch the video to hold you over :)!

Currently...

Hello loves! Sorry I'm still sparse around these parts. I have literally been on the go the last 2 weeks! By the time I actually get a chance to sit down and blog, I just don't! A lot has happened in the last 2 weeks since becoming a Mrs. so I figured why not do a currently post and get y'all caught up!

Currently:

watching...

Shahs of Sunset season finale! This season was so good and I can't wait for the reunion episode...so.much.drama!!



listening to...


I've been loving this song lately, such a chill song with a great beat!


eating...


Sushi date nights! Glad my husband (still SO weird to call him that) and I love sushi enough to eat it somewhat regularly!


lusting over...


I may have dropped the big hint on what I want for my birthday gift this year! I may buy it for myself as a birthday/congratulatory gift since......


excited for...

MY NEW JOB!!!
I'm so so excited to say that I landed my dream job here in Houston and it's super close to home which is a huge plus since I'm still learning my way around the city! I'll be working at the RediClinic inside of the H.E.B. grocery store and I cannot wait! I start the day after we come back from Mexico!


I'm also SUPER excited for our honeymoon in just 2 short weeks!!! Relaxing on the beach with my husband is just what I'll need before starting a new job and all the stress of the past year planning for the wedding and big move!


loving/missing...


This cute little furball Nico, can't wait to meet him in September! Also missing my parents and sister! Luckily they aren't sick of me calling on the reg, it's so tough being away from my family, but I'm glad that my parents are coming to spend a week with us this Saturday!! 

proud of...

Myself! I successfully completed writing, addressing and almost finished mailing out all of our thank you cards! My goal was to get them out before we left for Mexico, but being stuck at home most days with not much to do has meant I finished all of it sooner than expected :)! 

Y'all thank you cards are such a daunting task! I was sick of writing after about 50 of them and at the end I just wanted it to be over!


waiting for...

Our wedding photographer to send our pictures! I should have them this week, which means I'll probably skip out on tomorrow's Wedding Wednesday post because I have squat to actually post about! I promise I will get to recaps soon enough :)!


***************************************

So that's all I have for you guys for today! Again hope to get on some sort of regular blogging, until then my love bugs!
