Fantasy Spring Break in Gifs

If this was 10 years ago I'd be a Junior in high school and would be pretty upset about the fact that Spring Break has now come and gone. Shut it, yes my 10 year reunion is next year - huh? But, I'm not a Junior in high school anymore and I'm thankful for it because that girl didn't know how to do laundry, how to schedule her own doctor's appointment or what a credit card was used for. Becoming an adult day by day, aren't I mom?

It's Friday and I would love nothing more than to be recapping a week full of fun spring-time antics. A week inclusive of pool parties, drinks with umbrellas in them, a hundred selfies and naps on the sand. A week of late nights that led to bad good decisions and stories I couldn't tell you here on the internet. Maybe reading a book or two..?? What can I say I'm a good time girl. 

I could tell you about going to Arena football Monday night, or my week in clean eating, or blog things, work things, even my annual trip to the lady doctor!

While that sounds like a blast of a week recap I'd rather make up a fantasy spring break vacation and tell you all about it like it really happened. Sounds like a lot more fun, doesn't it?


Before you continue, I recommend playing this song to set the scene (and to back that azz up)

Sunday 

The best way to start a vacation is by taking a red-eye flight to somewhere tropical, right? I packed up all the airline bottle booze the T.S.A would allow and boarded a jumbo jet to freedom paradise.



Monday

Touched down in the Bahamas on a Monday morning and immediately handed all of my luggage to my valet and private escort for the week. I raced out to the white sand and the clear blue water to get my fill of sun rays and whistles from the locals. Or the Flamingos. I didn't discriminate.



Tuesday

Day two and I was already making friends at the all-inclusive resort, both girls and guys.  I might have went on a date with a tall dark and handsome east coast boy and he may have even given me a goodnight kiss (and a phone number!)



Wednesday

All the dancing, all the music, all the fun, all the being groped by sweaty people! Wait, what?



Thursday

After being up all night dancing the night away and fighting off the men mosquitos, I just wanted a day at the pool. Just a good book, a swim up bar and SPF 35. What I didn't know to expect were the hard bodies and their poolside antics. I'm not complaining.



Friday

The final morning is a day to wake up early and get the final hours on the beach in before heading back to rainy Portland. It made me beyond sad to pack up my bikini, say 'see you later' to my new friends and adios to the sunshine. But I was thrilled though to find new ways to pack the wine I didn't drink to bring back into the states!

Haha - just kidding. You guys thought there would be wine left over? You obviously don't know my Spring Break alter ego well enough. 

That was by far the greatest spring break trip that I've never taken. Look how much fun I had and all of the dollars I didn't spend!

I recommend that you try making up a fake vacation like this sometime. It almost makes you believe it was real. 

But really, can we do this next year? Happy weekend!

Marisa @ Uproot from Oregon said...

I'm in for a spring break. No leftover wine allowed. But I LOVE those flamingos, and yes, you were correct in assuming that no one wanted to hear your lady doctor stories...

Rachel said...

Tracy said...

Haha this is so great! I'm inspired to go on a fake vacation now. You made me realize that my 10 year reunion is also next year, yikes, sooooo thanks for that!

Kenzie Smith said...

Is it bad that I've never been on Spring Break before? I all of a sudden feel really lame, and I might need to do my own SB in gifs..

P!nky said...

I love all of your gifs!

Jordan said...

Hahaha this was awesome! We went to Cancun a couple of years ago and I was convinced that I was done with the partying/boozing it up/clubbing thing (I never really liked clubs anyway) but my brother really wanted to go out (he's 3 years younger) so we went out.... and it was a blast! When in Rome!

Have a great weekend!
