Tulum.... ohhh what a lovely day!

Just wanted to post a picture from August 18th, 2009 of the beach at Tulum.... Nice to see there are still people going!! (Yes, I know it says 2002 and May, but camera hasn't been set!!!)

For anyone who hasn't been to Tulum, it's worth the drive and the water is fantastic!!

Queires bailar???!!!

One of the things I was not naturally graced with is a gift for the arts.... What a shame that was for me growing up to as I looove the arts!! Dancing, music, singing, painting.... etc... I was always more of a sports girl, but that didn't make you a hit at school dances and such!
Thankfully, my best friend is amazing and she took the task of teaching me some rhythm... After all she had to be seen with me on the dance floor!! Then I met my hubby, and like most, and I"m not going to say all, but most Mexicans are born to dance!!!

One of the things I enjoy most about Mexico living is music, dancing, and art is everywhere!!

Hubby is great, and loves dancing with me when we go out! I am sooo happy as I know I still look like that silly "white" girl who can't dance!!! That being said - I look a hell of a lot better than some of the others, and a million times better than I did 10 years ago!! Needless to say I was rarely "picked up" on a dance floor!
(Wanna Dance????!!!)

Here a couple of recent pics of hubby and I dancing the night away!! Yes, feel free to make fun of my faces and snapping fingers... A bad habit I just can't seem to get over!! LOL!!

(And... I'm spent)

A little bit of paradise!

Well, I just got back from 16 days in what I like to call the European Paradise .... Croatia!
My brother and I enjoying a laugh by the sea
What an amazing trip I had, but oh boy oh boy was it scorching hot!! This heat was out of this world insane. It was drier than Cancun, and there certainly was not a breeze to be had. There is a heat wave going on along the Mediterranean, and Croatia was hit with temperatures ranging from 40-50 degrees Celsius!!! YES, I said 50. To me this was unbearable, and I honestly sat in the shade for the most part! My poor grandmother... I drug her all over the place in that heat - she was a trooper!
I don't want to bore anyone with too many details, but I"ll fill you in with a shortlist of what I did:

-Cousins wedding - starts at 1:00 pm and ended at 5:30am (literally best wedding I have EVER been to)
-Beaches of Split, Makarska and Dubrovnik - all AMAZING, but VERY expensive
-Visit family, family and more and more family
-Went to Medugorije, Mostar, Omitski, etc...
-Another cousins wedding - not as good as the first one, but still nice
-Much, much more!
Here are a few pics, I hope you enjoy!
