Mexico pics

Gosh, we didn't get very interesting photos! Okay, the first one is my sister Sharon, my mom, my other sister Deb and me in a kind of cabana. We are about to go and eat. This trip was the ultimate gorge-fest.

And there is me and mom on the beach. Why do I own a skull bikini? Answer is here.


























More beach pics. Mom, Deb and Sharon, and the other is Sharon and me. Sharon is a teacher and Deb is a photographer, but she didn't want to take photos. OMG, it was SO great to be in the warmth! It was like 80 every day. And people would bring you drinks. Note the quick progress of Sharon's drink.

And check out the huge iguana! Our resort rocked in every possible way!






I of course had wonderful reading material. As you see, Veil of Midnight. Excellent after a nice dip in the bright blue ocean.















Oh, look, an incredibly embarrassing pic. That was actually supposed to be ocean aerobics. It was for a while, until they made us do this. I am in the red bathing suit. Right there I was thinking, if Sharon takes a photo of this, I'll kill her. As you see, she did. But what's a blog without embarrassing pictures?






I also read Just the Sexist Man Alive by Julie James. It was SO excellent! I'll be reviewing it soon. Everybody fought over it. I totally don't know who this guy is.

Too cute! Did you get a nice tan?

Carolyn Jean said...

This trip was very fun and relaxing! but actually, I didn't get much of a tan. I tend to burn more than tan, so I sort of stayed in the shade a lot.

I'm SO jealous that you got to hang out on the beach. Srsly. I miss the beach. And the sun. and the warm freaking weather!

I just read Just the Sexiest Man Alive myself not too long ago. Sooo good. I loved it.

Glad you're back. I missed you. ;)

Wow! What fun to have with your mom and sisters. As much as I love my 3 sisters, I don't know if I could spend that much time with them. (well, maybe just 1 or 2 of them. lol) I'm glad you had such a great time.

Welcome home!

Kati said...

Thanks for sharing your vacation pictures. It looks like you had a really nice time. Darn, I wish I had sisters to vacation with!

Seriously though, you didn't know that guy? How weird is that?!

Amy C said...

Oh, to be somewhere warm right now! Looks like you all had a great time :).

Liza said...

Looks like y'all had a great time. Wish I was on the warm beach right now. Of course, since I burn I would have to stay in the shade most of the time, but at least it would be warm.
