How Sweet it Was...

We did it. 

We got away :o) 

This is what it looked like when we got to Cabo. A little overcast, but if you know us, you know we love that kind of weather.

I was watching the whales swim by in this picture. It sure doesn't get any better than that!

We went golfing one day, or should I say Dave golfed, and I drove the cart :o)

Off for some much needed pampering at the spa.

I loved this, and would like to somehow re-create one of these in my house!

Loved it so much, we had to take a picture next to it :o)

I was lucky enough to celebrate my birthday in Cabo. We came back from dinner only to discover this sunflower seed masterpiece! Isn't it awesome? It was on the bed, and took me hours to finally take it off.

Oh, and these too :o)

I love this little Bano Muchachita.

Goodbye, Pueblo Bonita Pacifica Holistic Spa & Resort! Say that 10 2 times fast!

There I am, waiting to leave, admiring the beautiful view, but thinking about how much tighter my jeans are than when I arrived! 

We ate everything in sight ; )

I wanted to thank my Mom, Gary, Uncle Roger, Aunt Rella, Jeff, Mark & Sue for helping us to get away. I could never forget you too Jen, thank you for caring for Senor Fish Face!

We could never truly express how much it meant to us to get away, and how much we appreciated every moment.

You made it all possible!

We LOVE you!


  1. Oh. My. Gosh. I'm SO jealous! Do you know...that the last time my husband and I went on a vacation together (one where we flew away and stayed at a hotel and had the kind of fun and relaxation that you guys had) was back in 1994. Is that pathetic, or what? We keep waiting for "when the baby gets older" but then another baby comes, then another, then another...it's never ending. Ah well. One day.

    Glad you guys went away and had such a nice time! Happy Birthday!!

  2. OH MY LORD. SERIOUSLY. SERIOUSLY? It looks like Paradise! Did you guys rent out the entire resort to yourselves? SOOO beautiful! I am SO glad that you guys had such an amazing vacation. Thank you for posting all of the pictures. I love seeing you guys have fun! Oh, and Happy Birthday!

  3. SOOOOOO happy you were able to get away and relax!!!! You deserved this so badly and I hope you can do it more often!!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!

  4. Happy Belated Birthday! Summer told me you went to Cabo, but I had no idea it could be that beautiful, and I've even been there once! Glad you had a great time!

  5. I'm having ocean withdrawls!!! Make that Mexico withdrawls! I'm so glad you got to get away! Beautiful pictures!

  6. Sooooo...How did it FEEL being "away"? Were you pre-occupied with thoughts of home or were you able to release them and enjoy the moments?

    Releasing "home" and enjoying "away" is HEALTHY. No guilt in it. In fact, it's essential...especially with all your precious family handles.

    The pix were beautiful..the blue of the sky took my breath away ;)


  7. WOW!!!!

    It looks like you were the only two there! Gorgeous!!

  12. Breathtaking!! And much needed - much deserved. Check FB when you can. Hoping we can get together next week!!!

  13. Wonderful! It's a blessing to have friends and family in our lives who help us get away from it all sometimes. Looks beautiful.

  14. that looks amazing and like you were the only people there. Ahhhhh the beach and warmth!

  15. I stole that last picture and posted it on my FB. Hope you don't mind. It's worth a million words! Love you, cuz! So glad you were able to get away and relax for a bit!
