Punta Cana Pool Side

If you follow me on instagram (@onesouthernbelleblog) you might have noticed a little change in scenery the last week or so :) Chad and I went to the Dominican Republic with our friends and family.  We have been planning this trip for a while and it was better than we ever could have imagined!  When we first decided to go we were living in Charlotte, and since we have moved it made our time with them even more special! 

We have been going non-stop this summer (and really ever since I met Chad to be honest!) and while the resort had lots to do, we spent the majority of our time by the pool just catching up with our friends!  The bartenders and waitresses were amazing (they love to call you their "family") and so kind to us. I know that they have a really hard job and we are so thankful for them and their amazing attitude that really added to our experience! 

We might have waited in a long line to get them, but these pina coladas in a pineapple were Ah-mazing!!! We actually re-filled them a few times :) 

This photo is actually from right outside our room! It was so cool to have little gardens everywhere! 

On Wednesday, we lined up on the beach for a fresh coconut with vodka (I think) As fun as the thought is to drink from a freshly cut open coconut, it's terrible!! Coconut water (especially warm coconut water!!) it NOT for me! We quickly disposed of our coconut/vodka and had them refilled with pina coladas!

They had these really fun swings at one of the pool bars! 

Hey Chad! Good job re-applying the sunscreen!

This little hut is actually where they keep the rafts at night, but it also made for a cute shady area to enjoy my pineapple drink!

My worst childhood pool fear came true this week! My freshly colored hair, turned green!! Chad found me sitting on the floor of our bathroom soaking it in tomato juice! (which worked like a charm if you ever have the issue!) We all had a good laugh and luckily it came out just fine!!

Thanks for stopping by! Tomorrow I'll be reviewing the food and nightlife!
