Hey guys! As some of you may know, we just spent a fun-filled week in beautiful Costa Rica! It was such a beautiful country, and we were able to enjoy lots that it has to offer. I thought I would share with you photos of some of the things we enjoyed! Be sure to check out my other blog post featuring our couples-photography. In those you can really appreciate the gorgeous beaches, sunsets, and scenery this tropical locale houses. Thanks for stopping by and enjoy!
On our way! We had just landed in the country.
At the hotel, The Riu Palace, getting ready to go for our first swim.
We had just stepped out of a 106 degree sauna, came out and slathered ourselves in a volcanic mud bath. After we rinsed off we relaxed in several hot springs. At the end of all the pampering, your skin really feels amazing.
What a typical night at dinner looked like for me: no heavy makeup (CC Cream was all I ever wore), side braids, and comfy maxi dresses.
Live shows at the hotel every night.
If you stand still and look close, most of the trees in Costa Rica have monkeys hanging around the tops of them. There are different kinds, here is the Howler Monkey. They are small, solid black vegetarian monkeys. Really sweet, they stay up high in the trees and don't really come down. To be so little they have really big/deep voices. 'Hoo-hoo-hoo-hoo', when people are around they start a hollarin and you'd swear it was a big ape, not a little bitty guy swinging by his tail eating flowers.

And the white-face monkey. Much more daring and not so afraid of humans, these frisky guys are known for being a tad meaner. Our tour guide told us the week before we were there, that one hopped on the boat and picked up a ladies wallet and made off with over $500. Hilarity!
We had such a great time! Thanks for stopping by to share my photos! I'm happy to say I'm all unpacked and all the laundry is washed/dried/and put away. Yay! #beproductive #getitdone
