Sounds So Sweet...Ooooh Mexico!

OK. So. Since our internet connection is slower. than. SNOT!! These pictures are not in the order I would prefer. But, really, what does that matter when I'm blogging about MEXICO!? I'm going to split the trip up into palatable bits..not only to increase my post-to-comment ratio (haha), but for my sanity's sake..I will lose it if I have to upload more than 3 pictures at a time!!

We started off the trip in Cancun (so cliche, I know..but a FUN cliche!) And basically spent the majority of our time on the chairs & in the water as seen in the picture above. Ahhhhhh! White, sugary sand between our toes! Slushy, cold pina coladas! Water SO blue & SO warm! The perfect amount of shade & the perfect amount of sunscreen (kinda, I got a really bizarre tan around my bikini line..I won't be posting pictures:)..& the occasional weirdo for entertainment..like the mid 40's mom hanging w/ her 18 y/o son & his 'entourage', who kept asking all the buddies if she was still hot. Seriously? She wouldn't want to hear my answer!

We were within walking distance of a shopping center that had lots of Oxxo's (the Mexican convenience store of choice) so Jeff got his fill of Manzana Lift..a mexican apple soda that he just can't get enough of..more on that later! And we hadn't been there long enough to be annoyed by being offered varied assortments of wares & services every 5 steps yet, so it was all part of the experience!

The water & view really were gorgeous & Jeff & I would end the night sitting on the practically empty beach listening to the waves..oh that I could end every night that way!

On our last morning there we took a group photo for some friendly folks and they reciprocated by taking ours:


As a side note: I considered it quite the accomplishment that I managed to make my hair look quasi-presentable most of this trip (hair really wasn't the priority). With how short it is I pulled off a faux-ponytail w/ headband look that was quite easy to do..yay!


I leave you with a pic that pretty much sums up the entire trip nicely: flip-flop tan lines & sandy toes..it doesn't get better than that!


Or does it....? Stay tuned!

So I learned all about Manzana Lift yesterday. If you didn't hear about it ask Jeff.
He also said you guys would be up for going back to Mexico tomorrow. I say lets do it. Our jobs can wait and I need a tropical break.

I am equally jealous of your amazing tip, and your tiny perfect body.
You should be in advertising, after you explained your trip I was like... sold!

So glad you didn't give everyone the swine flu :) Looks like so much fun--you deserve a little R&R before your big house warming party--oh, BTW I haven't recieved my invitation yet.

I actually lie Cancun. It seems way safer to me than some of the other Mexican destinations.

LOVE flip flop tans!

PS- What is up with slow internet. Ours has been so annoying lately, I can't even check my email when i want to!

That one girl said...

OOps, I don't 'lie' Cancun, I LIKE Cancun!

Bring on more pics... when that internet speeds up!
