Kelsea Ballerini has been enjoying the start of her 2023. She just posted photos from a January trip to Mexico with a bunch of girlfriends.

Kelsea posted a bunch of images and video clips to her Instagram, including showing off in a bikini, dancing with friends at a bar, and even whale watching. She captioned the photos in her usual all lowercase letters, “too many moments to fit into a dump, but here is our official submission to be the real housewives of cabo. my heart is full, my belly hurts from laughing, and if i see a margarita in the near future, i may yak. ready for the year and so deeply grateful for friendship.”

Many fans commented on the view into her winter week, including one fan who said, “The whale tail is awesome!!!” Another fan wrote, “Cabo girls trip inspo! Let the countdown begin.” One more fan commented, “Squid row?! Lol, so fun!!”

Ballerini was recently nominated for a Grammy for her “Heartfirst” song in the Best Solo Country Performance category. She was at a Nashville area restaurant having lunch with a group of friends when she heard about the nomination in November and watched the Grammy nominations live on one of their phones.

The girls and Ballerini all screamed when they heard the news, and one friend said, “We have a Grammy-nominated artist, people.” Kelsea shared the video clip on her Instagram, writing, “The song about following your heart no matter where it leads just for nominated for a GRAMMY. Couldn’t be more cosmic. Here’s to always jumping right in, baby, with your heart first.”

Several of Ballerini’s friends and fans reacted to the post, including Lady A’s Hillary Scott, a multiple Grammy winner herself, who posted four heart emojis. Singer Natasha Bedingfield commented, “This is so wonderful! Best news ever! I’m thrilled for you, darling.” A fan reacted, “Shoutout to whoever kept the camera stable to get the reaction.” Another fan wrote, “Still screaming, crying, throwing up!!!!”
