So Friday's will now be known as 5 thing Friday which will include 5 random things about me for others to get to know. The point is that these 5 things are not general knowledge so it may surprise a few readers. I'd love to here some 5 facts about you other bloggers out there so we can get to know each other and the random facts most people don't know about us. It's harder than you may think. Good luck!
Linked up with Brooke at Bright Wishes for an awesome
One: Someday when I start my amateur photography biz, this is what I'd like to own
Two: I want a puppy. It may be that I just watch Marley and Me but I can't
wait to have a big puppy when we have a home.
3: I wish there was at least one more hour in the day so I could spend
more time with my husband.
So we just got back from 5 days in beautiful Cancun, Mexico. It was absolutely beautiful and so warm every day. It was always in the 80's which made going to the beach pretty much the only thing we wanted to do while we were there. However, we eventually made time to do a few other things while we were there also.
The highlights have been spending lots of time in the ocean and on the beach. The water was amazing! So warm and so pretty. We hung out in the pool and around the hotel with our friends the Walton's. We were so glad they came along with us and had so much fun with them.
We also went kayaking, played tennis, a little ping pong, went boogie boarding, took a bus ride to the local flea market, ate lots and lots of food, played bingo, relaxed in the hot tub, played some fun wave games in the ocean, and watched many, many drunk people. We also spent a lot of time avoiding alcohol being poured into all of our drinks. The tropical drinks were soooo good! I had one Pina Colada after another. People couldn't believe that we didn't want alcohol in them. We were mocked on several occasions for that! :)
The flea market was intense. It was fun at first but after about the first 20 minutes of being bombarded by person after person trying to coerce and in some cased force us into their shops it got ridiculous! We only ended buying a tee shirt and a pretty handmade clay salsa bowl. I caught some of it on video. It was crazy.
The only low life of the trip was when I got a pretty severe sun burn on our second day which has been a lingering issue, but thankfully is finally getting better.
I made a lobster look albino there for a day or so! But after pretty much bathing in aloe daily, the burns have subsided.
All in all, it was one heck of an incredible vacation. It was both Greg and I's first time out of the country and new using our passports I just want to fill it up with stamps like crazy. Hopefully one day I can order a new one because it's full(here's to dreaming :). The Walton's were perfect vacation buddies, we had a blast doing everything with them. We love Mexico and can't wait to go back!
