Me Encanta Mexico!

I love Mexico! I never expected to like it so much, but our spring break trip to Mexico was perfect. We stayed at an all-inclusive (which I've never done before) in Riviera Maya (which is about 1 hour south of Cancun).

All we did (truly) was sleep, eat and sit on the beach. Ok, ok, there was an escape at snorkling and kayaking but those only last a half hour at the most. It was a smaller resort, but I think that was a good thing. We were able to get whatever we wanted to eat or drink whenever we wanted without much of a wait. This took ma few days to get used to as did not tipping every time we got a drink.

One thing that sticks out in my mind was the Carribean Sea. I remember waking up each day and going out to the beach and every day thinking, "I can't believe the water is that color". In terms of the water and the beach, I would have to say it was prettier than Maui. Gasp, I know, blasphemy.

Well, it was a much need break from school. This is the long haul now, but it was great to escape.

New Bedroom, New Smile

It is days like yesterday that make me think that I am manic-depressive. I don't say that lightly, and I've been told that I am not, but there are definitely days that I am soaring high (no drugs involved) and days that I am a sloth permanently connected to the couch.
So what happened yesterday? I decorated our bedroom. I cannot tell you how exciting it is! I feel like I finally have a grown up bedroom. I love it! It was magical to sleep in. I spent the entire day on this room and I got it all finished. I sewed the curtains, sanded and painted the dresser, bought a new comforter, mirror and lamp. Did I mention I love it, love it, love it!
The weather was beautiful yesterday (and I think it will be the same today). Spring is here! I love this weather! I truly believe that Spring is life giving and I love the energy that I feel pulsing right now. It really makes me think that we should move to warmer weather.

ski weekend

aaron and i went skiing this weekend in wisconsin. it was so much fun! i have to say that i am so proud of myself. i was really afraid, but excited at the same time. i remember skiing in high school and having so much fun. almost ten years later, it is a totally different story. what if i fell and broke my leg? i can tell that i am not as fearless as i used to be, but this was definately exciting to test my fear. it was a perfect weekend! i am no amazing skiier, but i did prety good. it was also so much fun to be alone with aaron. he is so amazing. i can't imagine a better person to ski with and spend the weekend with.
