Back 2 Life

Well, I just got back from vacation, and there was a blog award waiting for me courtesy of Kelly, who is a new face here at A Blissful Life. What a pleasant surprise! I've never been nominated for anything like that before. Thanks for thinking of me, Kelly!

I had an amazing time on the Pacific Coast of Mexico. The water was warm, the sun was hot, and the non-alcoholic drinks were plentiful.* I survived the public transportation, and discovered that when you're shopping, everyone is your amigo. Also, I was able to get lots of colour (a heat rash, but maybe it'll turn into a tan?).

It short, it was a blast, and apparently, my husband and I still enjoy each other's company, haha.

Anyways, I just thought I'd pop in and say a quick hello. It's nice to be back on my laptop again. I've got so much catching up to do, and so little time, but I'm sure many of you can relate to the crazy fun this beautiful Christmas season brings. :)
I'm gonna run, but here's a little picture that was taken from our balcony in Ixtapa, Mexico**.

And the view from the front of the hotel overlooking the Sierra Madre mountain range.

Then, just for fun, let's say that we didn't know what time church was on Sunday, so we were a few hours early and I tried to pick the lock to the yard. Since B & E is not my forté we found out that nobody would be there for another couple of hours, we ended up leaving. Good times though, good times.

Talk to y'all later!


*Seriously, I drank more pop and virgin piña coladas than any human should consume in 8 days. If I never see another Fresca, it'll be too soon.
**I highly recommend it for anyone wanting an authentic Mexican vacation. There were tons of Mexican tourists, but only about 6 white folks in our hotel. The food was great, the service was incredible, and there were barely any bugs (which is great, because I'm scared of bees. And wasps. Well, and anything that can hurt me. Pain is bad.)

Sounds like a trip from heaven. Are both you & your husband bilingual?

The pictures are crazy amazing; they give me wanderlust in a very real way (sigh).

Wishing you & your family a very Merry Christmas!
