When Eva Longoria spends the holidays at the beach, she goes all out. The actress even decorated her Christmas tree outdoors, telling her Snapchat followers, “The Christmas tree is on the sand. We brought it outside from the house. They thought I was crazy.”

It’s not surprising that the 41-year-old actress wanted to bring the tree outside, considering that she seems to be on a mission to soak up as much sun as possible during her vacation in Mexico. Her Instagram is full of bikini pics that show her jumping for joy, cruising on a boat, dancing on the beach, and catching a few rays in a lounge chair.

Longoria is on the cover of the current issue of Latina magazine, and in an interview, she revealed that she sometimes wishes she’d gone to law school and become a civil rights lawyer. “Campaigning with Hillary Clinton in Florida, I met lawyers not even 30 years old donating their time to give to people in the community. I said, ‘God, you guys are really fighting the fight!’ I wish I’d gone to law school so I can better understand how to help people understand the system and make it work for the community.”

While we respect that dream and support it 100 percent, we just hope it wouldn’t preclude snaps like these…
