Her debut

I could not think of  any other way to honor you but to share your awesomeness with the world. So as I sit here at 3a on week day jamming to Got it Bad, I guess the short version of what I'm trying to say is that I love you, I appreciate you... and I thank you for being 


you are all that and a bag of chips...you are destined for greatness

In you, I've learned to be strong, believe in myself, be patient, selfless, optimistic. I know that I unleash the bitch way too often than necessary and I'm sorry for this. I am working on putting that heffer in check - just give me some time. Know that you are loved so deeply, I lose my breath just thinking about it. 

....and I pledge to shave my legs and put out more ;) 

Happy Belated Father's Day

Viva Mexicooh

View from our room 

Day 3
We originally planned to visit Tulum, which is a stoned walled Mayan city (ruins), its most popular architecture is the Castillo located on a cliff overlooking the ocean. The math did not quite work out so we decided to spend the day at our resort. The entertainment crew kept us occupied with performances and also rallied people to join in volley ball games, drunken tequila in the pool. At the resort's kids club there were video and craft games for the children amongst other things. Unfortunately Yum Yum couldn't partake in any of their activities since they only baby sat kids 4 & up. Day 3 was pretty much food – sleep -beach – sleep - food – pool – beach- sleep- food- sleep. I inhaled everything within sight and gave up sucking in my tummy.

Viva Mexico!!!

Ahhhh!!! Where to begin...where to begin… Mexico = beautiful.. breathtaking.. exhilarating.. hot...& yes exhausting. I felt as though I was in a postcard come alive.

I don’t think I’ve mentioned this before, but at the beginning of the year, I set a goal to save a certain amount of money by December.  At the same time, I had Mexico on my mind which of course requires well, a significant amount money. So, I set out to go on this trip without breaking the bank; here’s the rough breakdown of how Mexico happened.

Flights: $920 (2 adults & infant < 2 in lap)
Accommodation: Wyndham Azteca  $540 (Living Social Deal – all inclusive)
Ground Transportation (Cancun Airport Rnd trip): $90
Miscellaneous Spending: 300
Unexpected costs : Excursions - $ 260 & Airport Parking: $74

Total Trip Cost: $2,184 for family of 3

We went over budget by $94, which is not too bad.  

Day One
Our first day in Playa del Carmen started off with a minor bump – our room was not ready when we arrived.  And so we had to wait a couple hours to get settled in. To be fair, the hotel staff was very apologetic and worked very hard to get us set up as quickly as possible, while we waited, we were given complete access to the resort’s facilities.
