Between some financial problems, her boyfriend’s recent relocation to Tennessee and the constant demands of motherhood, Teen Mom‘s Maci Bookout seems to have a lot going on these days… But was recently able to break away from it all for a girls’ trip to New Orleans and Mexico. And, from the look of things, the weekend theme song must have been Kenny Chesney’s No Shirt, No Shoes, No Problems!
Maci and five of her long-time friends started with a road trip down to New Orleans, where they enjoyed a night out on Bourbon Street.
They then boarded the Carnival Elation for a Western Caribbean cruise to Cozumel, Mexico. Maci announced the plans with a pretty excited-sounding Instagram post on Friday: “Taking off on the elation… headed to mexico for the weekend with my childhood sisters! see yall next week!”
The girls dropped off the radar for a few days as they were out at sea… But it definitely doesn’t sound like they were in need of entertainment: The Carnival Elation offers “plenty of spots for a drink, from the laid back Gatsby’s bar to the jumping Jekyll and Hyde Dance Club to the always-swinging Duke’s Piano Bar.” There are also more dining options than the girls likely had time to explore… It looks like they prioritized with at least one fancy dinner.
Other than their dresses for the upscale meal, it looks like Maci and her friends spent most of the weekend in their bikinis. (Click pictures to enlarge.)
From the sound of things, the big downside to Maci’s weekend away — other than being apart from her son — is that it wasn’t a paid vacation: Sources say Maci makes most of her money by charging $1,950 per sponsored tweet. So, by going without cellphone service for the whole weekend, she wasn’t able to make that moolah! Fortunately for her, insiders still say MTV’s working on a Teen Mom reboot, so she may be back on the air before long.
