Ohhhh Mexico!

by Shelly

I can’t seem to get James Taylor out of my head the past week or so!  I keep repeating about the only part of the song I know…
“Way down here you need a reason to move
Feel a fool running your stateside games
Lose your load, leave your mind behind, baby james”

That’s right, we’re going to Me-hee-co friends!  One of my husbands’ oldest, childhood buddies is finally getting hitched in a sleepy surfer town just north of Puerto Vallarta called Sayulita.  It’s getting popular, but for the most part it is still relatively unknown.  We are in DESPERATE need of some child free vacation time together.  And since we are all about doing things on the cheaps these days, well Sayulita fits the bill!

I will hopefully be taking a ton of pictures to share with you all once I return home.  I say “hopefully” because the hubs and I are notorious for NOT taking pics while we are on vacation.  We usually seriously CHECK OUT!  But I have sworn to myself that I will be good and snap away while we are there. We shall see!

In any case, here’s a bit of what I plan to take on our trip.  I decided to wear a J. Crew dress from a few years ago that has only made it out of my closet once!  Although it is white (and technically you aren’t suppose to wear white to a wedding), I figured it was ok since it has big ol’ lobsters on it!  The lobsters screamed Mexico to me..or the East Coast…so I have to wear it! Other than that I see myself in a bathing suit, sunglasses and a hat most of the time..at least when I’m not surfing!

Do you have any fun getaways planned for the winter months?

You MUST do it Wendi! Good for the kids and for your marriage…seriously. We went to Hawaii when Ellie was just over a year and then we’ve taken some short 3-4 day trips here and there. But I always miss her TERRIBLY by day 2!

Ooo..Love the dress, and I’ve worn white to weddings more time than I probably should have. You attend a beach wedding, that’s what happens I guess?

Are you going to Walt Disney World or Disneyland? Disney World was a lot of fun…I went in my early 20s. And it is SO well set up for families too! If you and hubby want to have a night to yourselves, they have awesome childcare and things set up for you to have your own time.

We are going to..um..the Disney in Florida. Which I should know what it’s called because I lived in Florida. And my entire extended family is following us (grandparents, aunts, cousins). Which is totally fine, as I can’t wait to see the excited looks on my three little girls faces the first time they enter the park!
I will, however, visit Mexico.. a la Epcot. Ole!
