Hello hello! I have missed you all. Lots of blog catching up to do this week. I got in from Puerto Rico last night but still got up to get a run in before work. 6 miles enjoying the cool spring breeze. It’s starting to heat up in Texas by the end of this week with highs almost hitting the 90s! Summer will be here before you know it.
So my birthday vacay was nothing short of amazing! I spent a lot of it sipping rum punch, feet up in a hammock and bouncing around the colorful city of San Juan. I also got to see my best friend Nicole from college who I have not seen in 2 years! She is my favorite travel buddy.
We both got in Friday afternoon and went straight over to the Pina Colada club for dinner. I had this pina colada martini with toasted coconut on top. So marvelous. I need to recreate this at home.
Since we had been flying all afternoon that day was pretty chill. Then Saturday morning we were up for a workout at the fitness center. I ran 4 miles and threw some weights and medicine balls around.
Then we showered and had brunch at one of the many restaurants at the hotel. Egg white omelet, sweet tater fries and lots of tropical fruits. I could have eaten my weight in those sweet potato fries.
The rest of the weekend was mostly dedicated to hanging out at the hotel’s poolside bar and amazing private beach. I wish I could fold this place up and put it in my pocket. Then I would take it out whenever I was having a hectic day. Ahh…relaxation at its finest.
Sunday we worked out in the morning, had brunch then hit up the Bacardi rum factory. We got a little history lesson on how the rum was made and distributed. It was super fun and we sipped on mojitos and shopped at the gift shop afterwards.
Overall I had a lovely, relaxing vacation with my bestie! It was probably one of the most relaxing vacations I’ve had in a loonnnng time. Both Nicole and I agreed we are going to schedule some time to come back next year and explore more sights in sunny San Juan. The people, the culture, water…love everything about this place. Thank you Puerto Rico for showing us an amazing time!
How was your weekend? Looking forward to anything this week?
When’s the last time you’ve been on a relaxing vacation?
