Mexico: My Perfect Escape

We had an absolutely perfect time on our Mexico trip. It really was one of my very favorite trips of all time, possibly because I've never needed a vacation so much. We stayed at a great resort which was only 40% occupied due to the economy and swine flu scare. So we got great service and always had a beach chair. Everyone at the resort was super nice, so we made lots of friends and ate tons of yummy food.

I had intended to post some pictures on here of our trip, but unfortunately someone (Aaron would now point at me) might have lost a locker key during an excursion and someone (bad person in Mexico) found it and stole our money and our camera. We were upset for an hour until we got back to our hotel and had some drinks and swam. Then we bought a disposable camera for way too much money. So once I develop pictures the old-school way, I'll post them.
I'm sure they'll be great quality. :)

I have lots of fun Mexico stories, but no one wants to read a novel so I'll include my favorite one now and maybe save the others for the rest of the week. Okay, so I've never seen a bidet which is essentially a fancy French "toilet like" device that you use to rinse off after "taking care of business". Well, our room had one. So I think great, I love to try new things. So I bend over it to watch what's going to happen when I turn it on, and I carefully turn the handle expecting to barely see anything come up, and I get a gush of cold toilet water all over my face and chest. Aaron turns around just in time to see me dripping all over it! I never chose to use it on my tush after that considering the force with which it hit me in the face....
Also, I see Dr. Haas in the morning (way too early) and I ovulated again this month on Day 15 while we were gone, so we'll see if my progesterone levels are miraculously any better this month. I'll post again tomorrow!!!

  1. lol, my aunt in IL has one of those came with her new house! I thought it was the coolest thing and tried it and guess what, I ended up with water on my face too! Glad I'm not the only person who can't use that thing!

    Sorry to hear about your stuff getting stolen but it seems like your vacation was wonderful despite your small blunder! I am not a fan of mexico but your trip sounds amazing! I'm not a fan because my husband's friends decided to get married in a small mexican city with little luxaries. We slept in a hut with walls and no glass on the windows, so you shared your bed with spiders, roaches, crabs...eeeew, I get goose bumps thinking about that trip, but your mexican vacation sounds like one I would love! :)

    I'm praying this is your cycle!
