La Isla Bonita!!

Oh yeah. We're going.

Mexico, that is.

Isla Mujeres, baby!!!!!!


I think that this place will be in our future:


And, some of this:


And, probably a bit of this:



I can hardly believe that we bit the bullet and bought the tickets. Feels like a very good thing to do - especially considering the immense wait that continues to extend before us. Funny what a little inspiration from friends, a bit of detective work on Orbitz, a vision of sandy warm beaches in the winter-time mixed in with some creative budgeting can do to make a dreamy vacation a reality.

Um, yeah, we are STOKED.

Too cool! I am just going to stay here in upstate NY this year under 200 inches of snow...don't worry about me, I'll be okay. The snow should not start until at LEAST next week.

Have fun for me too! :)

GOOD FOR YOU, sweet woman! Tell me Every.Thing. When? For how long? Renting a car? Where are you staying? Last time I was in the Yucatan was `93 (`94)? Loved the snorkeling - it's memories are still a "happy place" (in my head) when I need a calming vision. I'll be looking for a detailed e-mail, pretty please! So happy for you two.

Yippedeedooo! How fun that will be, and well deserved. Can you send home a little of that relaxation and sunny beachside ambience to me? When are you going? Have a wonderful time. It looks gorgeous.

Oh, how fun! We went to Tulum, Mexico during our wait and it was so awesome. Nothing like the last child free vacation!

Katie J said...

Oh yeah, it sounds like a good time. We went to Belgium before Buttons came and I'm so glad we took a vacation before the wee one came in and took over our whole life. (Not complaining, just explaining.)

One of the best things about living in AZ is how close we are to Mexico!! Of course, not where you're going exactly, sadly enough. If we were in driving distance to THAT Mexico my car would have a lot more miles on it.
