mexico daydreams...

Last March, I was lucky enough to take a trip to Mexico with one of my best friends, Michelle, and her old best friend Darlene.  Darlene and I hit it off, and the three of us took off on a jet plane.  

How awesome is this?

This year, I had resigned myself to the fact that I would not be going on the annual girls only trip.  We need a car and a roof, and taking the time and money for a trip seemed too frivolous.  

But, after a much too good to be true deal, it looks like the Mexican get away is not only possible, but perhaps just around the corner.

The beach dogs, the 2 for 1 beer, the sun....

This was my favorite restaurant, even though they tried to rip me off, I love the red plastic chairs stuck in the sand on the beach...

So laid back and slow.  Even the wind moves slowly...

This is my Mexican street dog friend.  He led me to a shop that sells dog food by the scoop.  He was no fool, this one...

On the beach, drinking beer, eating coconut shrimp....

I'll keep you posted if and when we book our flights...


  1. I hope your dream vacation becomes a reality. Sometimes we just have to say, "I CAN do this."

  2. where in Mexico was this? it looks like zihuatanejo. i left my heart there! ;^D

  3. FUN! I've never been but it looks like the weather is the total opposite of Port so thumbs up for that!

  4. punk rawk purl- this was puerto vallarta. i would love to go somewhere smaller and less touristy, but there are such good deals going here. we got our entire trip, including taxes and EVERYTHING for $850 last year. can't beat it!

  5. Jealousy consumes I need summer to get here stat!

  6. We just got back from the Dominican Republic this am, I miss it already
