what we're back????? time flies i guess when you are in paradise!


we're back! but sadly back to the grind :( we had such a fantastic time, it was oh so hard to get up at 3:00am saturday morning to get on the plane back to reality...but we have great memories to look back on and more importantly we got to spend an entire full week together...just the two of us... total perfection :D

before i start, i want to thank all you for the lovely and sweet comments you left while we were gone, they were such a joy to come back to and read. i also want to thank my two amazing guest bloggers! thanks ladies, i soooo enjoyed reading them and having you as guests!!!

so this week you are going to be flooded with pictures of our vacation, as we reminisce on paradise...we came back with 9 rolls of film! 6 only developed as the other 3  roll of film are from our twin lens camera and we have to take that to a special space to get developed....so here are pictures of the airport, playa del carmen and.... the playa.....i have this urge to keep talking in spanish as i don't get to use it that often...it was soo much fun talking in another language even it's more like spanlish :D
on the sky train in the sf airport...all to ourselves!
an awesome view from the plane! so wish we knew where this was! looks like a really big snail trail...
our flight from dallas to cancun was delayed an hour so we enjoyed pub food and a beer!
not guiness but i do love a cold guiness however they are the maker of my favorite beer, smithwicks!

 our first day in mexico we took the shuttle from our hotel to a little beach town called playa del carmen where we walked around and looked at the shops, had a drink on the beach and then played in the water...the weather turned out to be better then we thought. the forecast said it was to rain and thunder the entire week...guess we were lucky because the weather was perfect...bits of clouds and scattered rains, just when you needed to get cooled down ;)

a church in down town playa del carmen
they must take the stations of the cross very seriously here
this was shot right after it rained....this row of apartments was for rent....hmmm just might take that offer :D
walking the street of playa del carmen
this little vignette was in a tequila store...love the little day of the dead lady drinking some tequila
on our way back to the hotel...just waiting on the shuttle
 fun on the playa.....

such a cutie!
yum, pina colada!

shortly after this picture was taken it rained super hard for about 20 minutes...we ran to seek shelter under a hotel and then headed to a taco truck for some SUPER cheap delicious tacos


tomorrow are pictures of our days being super lazy by the pool....i miss that pool and the two for one drinks too! ;D

  9. Wow! That looks like an amazing trip... my hubby and i have yet to take a 'real' honeymoon, and we got married in july 2009. every time we say we're going to save for a big trip, little adventures come along that we just can't pass up. Your pictures are inspiring me to actually stick to my guns and get to a beach somewhere, post haste!
