hey guys! i wanted to start out by saying that one year ago today, my mister proposed to me in jamaica!
what a whirlwind this year has been, eh?
it is kind of nice to have a free tropical vacation the first week of february every year. last year’s was jamaica (where we got engaged.. obviously) and this year, as you know, was mexico.
on that note.. another flashback to our trip to mexico!
in case you missed it:
i left off sunday after a long stroll on the beach. we showered all the salt water and sand off ourselves and cleaned up for dinner in town.
waiting in the lobby for friends..
“town” is only a couple miles from the hotel, so it didn’t take much to get there. once there, we went to a restaurant that i had actually eaten at two years before. la parrilla.
we ordered chips, guac and melted cheese for starters.
i often dream of their lobster tacos, so my order was already decided before i even sat down.
blech.. yellow lighting alert.
everyone in the group took shots except for me & marshall. we don’t do shots. not even with groups. but we were all about this kind of group shot!
yes, i am cheesier than our appetizer. left to right.. me, marshall, my co-worker sim and her husband cade, dana (corey’s wife) and my coworker corey. it’s always fun to hang out with work people outside of work..and the fact that we were in mexico didn’t hurt the situation at all.
after finishing our meals and eating way too many chips, it was time to wander off all that food.
can you spy marshall in the photo above? hint: backpack.
we saw a few animals in town, including a baby lion! yes, a baby lion cub. it was sooo cute and i felt sooo sad for it! they were charging $20 for photos with the lion cub. i hope it has a good home life. i mean.. the streets of playa del carmen aren’t exactly jungle territory.
so.. no $20 photo of the lion cub. sorry. here are some cool birds as a compensation prize.
we ended up holding a squirrel monkey. the cuteness sucked us in. worth $10? probably not.. but it’s all about the experience, right?
i leave you with a plethora of photos from and and about in the town.
day 3 coming up next! have a great monday night/tuesday day. see you next time.
1. what is your favorite animal?
2. do you like lobster?
