When my baby girl came along, things changed a bit (funny how that happens when you become a parent.)  I wouldn’t necessarily say that it’s now a mom blog…but some days it sort of is.  You’ll see lots of photos of my sweet girl, and snippets of our life, which still fortunately includes quite a bit of cooking and entertaining.

Mexico vacation{Photo credit El Dorado Royale}

By the time you are reading this post, Erik and I will be on a flight on our way to the Riviera Maya, Mexico. I’m not sure I’ve ever been so excited for vacation. I am so ready to be out of the bitter cold that we’ve been experiencing in Minnesota. Hello 80 degree weather, I can’t wait to feel the warmth.

We are staying at the El Dorado Royale resort. We honeymooned there and loved it so we decided to head back to celebrate our 5 year wedding anniversary. The food at this resort is amazing; really gourmet, 5-star food. The beaches are wonderful and the suites are gorgeous.

Erik and I are due for a little getaway but I will be missing my girl a lot. I’ve had a bit of anxiety about leaving her but I know she will do great with her grandparents.

While this vacation is 95% leisure, I will be doing a little bit of blog business while I’m there. I’ll be posting photos (beach photos, food photos, cocktail photos!!!!) so if you are interested in checking this place out be sure to follow me on Instagram @eatdrinkpretty.

I’ll be returning next week and will have a full review with lots of photos of our trip. In the meantime the blog will be a little quiet but feel free to peruse the recipe index or check out all the lovely birthday parties, bridal showers and baby showers.

Vacation.

I am going on one. Today. A cruise actually. Lucky, right? I can’t wait!

My husband and I will be hanging out in the Caribbean; St. Thomas, St. Maarten and the Bahamas.  I’ll be sipping lots of champagne cocktails and eating way too much.  I hope to return a much more relaxed version of myself. 

I’ll be gone until December 12th.  Eat Drink Pretty won’t have any new posts until Monday, December 13th. In the meantime please check out the hundreds of posts in the archives.  The recipe index offers great ideas for your holiday baking and cooking.  Or if you are hosting a party sometime soon check out all of the adorable children’s parties I’ve posted over time.  Planning a wedding?  There are some gorgeous real weddings for inspiration.

Thanks so much for understanding. I need a vacation! I’ll miss the blog and all of you of course. Your comments mean so much to me.

I’ll be back soon!

PS. Happy birthday to my beautiful sister, Katie!!!!
