coconuts anyone?

As I promised, I'll share with you what John and I have been up to for the past week. We went on our honeymoon. Yes, it's very belated. But just as wonderful. After our wedding in October of '09 we did take a week off work. But we had a stay-cation. We wrapped up the wedding and spent an entire week at home. It was wonderful, relaxing and much-needed. We'd always planned on taking our honeymoon, but it took us a while to get it planned and the vacation time accrued. So at last, it happened.

And because it was such a fantastic week, I'm going to break up the week into a couple of posts for you so you won't get bored of my ranting all at one time.

Last Sunday morning (at a very cold 20 something degrees) we left and headed to Cancun, Mexico and had a wonderful time. It stayed around 80 degrees and sunny all week. Tropical paradise. I highly recommend going if you are looking for a little getaway.

We had views from our room like this:

The first day I laid under here. And sang/ hummed all afternoon.

I've got a lovely bunch of coconuts...

There they are all standing in a row...
now I have you singing it don't I?

Don't lie. I know you know the words.


Anywhoo, that's all we did on the first day. I don't think there was a moment I didn't have a drink in my hand. Pina Colada's. My very favorite.

The second day we got more adventureous and headed out for a day of snorkeling. It was our first time. And between the times of spitting, sputtering, inhaling the sea water, and nearly choking ourselves, we caught some pretty cool sights.


 Hello Fishy! Reminds me of Dorris from Finding Nemo. Just keep swimming.. just keep swimming.

See the turtle? So cool.

Stay tuned for more pictures and adventures in the next post..
