Friday morning.........

Well, a lot has happened since I last posted here. We just got home from a busy vacation in Mexico. It was such a wonderful place to visit,  EVERYTHING was included!!! Food, drinks, snacks, room service, spa....did I mention the drinks??? I'm usually not much of a drinker, but the Pina Coladas (spelling?) were the best. The weather was nice almost the whole time. A few showers here and there, but always a nice breeze.
We were so pampered the whole time. I love having someone pick up after me and not complain! The food was a little different, but finally decided room service was the way to go for me. I could order pretty much what I'm used to, only with minor differences. And they set it up sooooo nice for us.
We went on a tour, did some sight-seeing and shopping while we were there, but the open markets and such are pretty much the same in whatever country you're in. Couldn't tell much difference in Mexico, the Bahamas, Grand Caymens....just the sayings on the T-shirts are different. LOL!! We did buy a few pieces of jewelry (always sterling silver, cause of the good prices) I bargained with one vendor to save 48.00 on a bracelet. I was very pleased and he seemed to be as well. T-shirts were a bit pricey I thought...almost $20.00 a piece and that was with the discount. But, we picked up a few anyway.
I'm always a little nervous about buying too much stuff, because of going through customs, but even that was a breeze this year. So exciting to get more stamps on my passport! (I was a little disappointed when we went to the Bahamas last year on the cruise, cause we didn't get any stamps at all.........)
We were in Mexico five years ago and couldn't believe how much it had changed......it seemed to be much more up to date and current (for lack of a better word) . The old, delapidated buildings are being replaced and the roads are sooo much nicer, 4 lanes in a lot of areas and even the Taxi's are newer. I took quite a few pictures and will post some  after I have a chance to go through all of them.

Just wanted to check in and let everyone know that I'm still around, as it was a little harder there for me. I couldn't ever get signed on to my blog to leave comments, but I did read a few now and then. It's amazing how much you can miss normal, every day....looking forward to getting back to my routine. Right now, we are heading out to eat....I'll be back soon.

Thank goodness you are home safe and sound and no worse for the wear! It sounds like you had a great time. We could all use room service, what a treat. You deserved a break.
