A week ago my husband Scott and I returned from an amazing vacation in Los Cabos, Mexico. Scott’s client was turning the big 4-0 and invited us along for the festivities. That’s simply not something you turn down! She had been planning her big birthday celebration for an entire year, and it showed in every detail. We were so impressed, and I just couldn’t help myself … I had to show all of you what we did! 

#MG40! Melissa created this logo for the weekend, and I loved how it popped up in so many unexpected ways.

She and her husband rented out the Cabo Surf Hotel, which was right on the beach, and absolutely gorgeous! This is where we spent almost the entire weekend. 

These welcome bags were waiting for us upon our arrival with lots of goodies inside. Each girl had pre-ordered a custom hat which kept us safe from the sun and made for some amazing photos.

We hardly had time to enjoy the view before the first event began! 


The welcome party took place in this amazing pool area. It was fun to meet the other guests, hear the mariachi band play, and enjoy drinks and appetizers!   


Our amazing hosts for the weekend! Can you believe they brought in their own DJ? Melissa had fun playing some tunes as well!

That night we got all dressed up for a little party on the beach. Dinner, dancing, karaoke … and an amazing fire dancing show! What else can you ask for?


During the day, there wasn’t much to do other than enjoying a drink or some relaxation by the pool. 

Scott and I took a little walk on the beach as well. It was the perfect way to spend the day. 

Melissa’s wardrobe changes were incredible. They deserve a shout out of their own!

Saturday night the group got dressed up and took buses to the Esperanza Hotel for an amazing dinner. 

I told you she used her hashtag in fun ways!



A delicious meal of surf and turf and unexpected (and not planned by them) fireworks made for the perfect evening.

We also had flash tattoos of the logo in our welcome bag. Here is the birthday girl modeling it for us!


Melissa had planned all along to get group photos with our custom hats, and I think they turned out Insta-worthy!

The last night, we said good-bye with an amazing white party complete with 80’s cover band and a pretty incredible fireworks show (This one was planned.)! We had so much fun dancing the night away.

We woke up early the next morning to this gorgeous sunrise and headed to the airport to return to our three girls (who by the way were on their best behavior per all of their incredible babysitters). Thank you Melissa and Dave for including us in such an amazing weekend, and thank you to all of our parents and Tami and Phil for watching our girls so we could relax a bit and make these awesome memories!
