doing absolutely nothing :)
(look at me being all
wrinkle conscious harmful UV ray responsible in the shade with my big ole floppy hat)
The Mr. and I headed to Mexico for a week to relax and recharge, we have been looking forward to this trip all year.
We unplugged, sat, read, slept, swam, ate and relaxed…
and then ate some more –
I think I ate my weight in guacamole and pico de gallo…which is ok because it’s all fresh veggies (we won’t speak of the mountain of fried tortilla chips)…
and then I sat some more…
It was so great to relax and recharge and get the chance to really miss my kids.
Not to mention the chance to really talk to my husband instead of just the snippets of conversations between the “mommy, mommy, mommy” and “daddy, daddy, daddy” we normally manage.
This was the view out our balcony – it was sooooo peaceful to fall asleep listening to the ocean.
We felt so blessed to have this time together, not to mention thankful to our amazing parents for tackling babysitting duty for the week.
Now back to reality…
and the best part of coming home – being woken up by my favorite little monkeys!
I was SO ready for the “mommy, mommy, mommy!” chant by the end of the week.
Is it just me or is little man giving me the look like “who are you lady?” – must be my mommy guilt kicking in :)
So, sorry, I was radio silent over here, but sometimes you just gotta unplug and enjoy life without all the distractions…some of us (ahem, me!) did this better than others (ahem, the Mr. still had his “crackberry/blackberry” glued to his hand). But that’s ok I forgive him, after all he did book us a couples massage on Valentine’s Day (and I’ll even overlook the fact that he won them for free, ha!).
And if you’re new around here I promise there is more DIY/decor ideas on the way. In fact I will be posting 5 days next week, with all sorts of fun ideas for Spring with some of my favorite bloggers – stay tuned for more info on that.
Also, I’ll be announcing the winner of the Get Healthy Giveaway later this week too!
Ok, off to tackle my mountain of laundry, not to mention the grocery store, oh and squeezing the heck out of my kiddos!
