Vacation planning...

Our husband and I have never been on a vacation with just the 2 of us. We have gone out of town with friends, but never by ourselves. Our niece was getting married in July and we decided that we wanted to go see her get married and enjoy a vacation away which would be just like our own honeymoon, with an added bonus! And then as an extra bonus we decided to go surprise my family in Louisiana on the way home.

So, in February we started planning our trip and booking our reservations. We booked our flights to Mexico City to start with... a few days later we realized that the wedding was not going to be in Veracruz, but instead Cancun. At first it was a little stressful because our airplane tickets were booked and our options were to drive 15 hours to Cancun from Mexico City or buy another plane ticket to Cancun. We decided after much thinking and talking that the best for us would be to buy another plane ticket which is what we did.

Now that we had all our plane tickets figured out we decided to book our hotels. Since it was our honeymoon we found a really nice all inclusive hotel that was amazing and we booked it. We booked 2 nights there and then we booked 1 night at the hotel Michelle and Gil were getting married at... Our final hotel was pretty neat as well and by the airport. 

We booked a rental car for Cancun, we had a rental car booked for Houston to get us to Louisiana and we had it all reserved and most of it paid for. I went to get my passport shortly after booking everything and I had that a few months before we left... we had started saving money for spending down there and we were doing great... 

We had 5 months to countdown to a vacation of our lifetime... And the waiting began...
