ten things I learned on vacation


Our vacation to Cancun was our first experience staying at one of those "all inclusive" resorts. I wasn't sure what to expect but I did learn a few things from it....

1. It is possible to actually eat too much chocolate.

2. One week is not enough time to drink through the entire menu of pool side foofoo drinks.

3. There are crazy people who bring their babies to these places!

4. A one mile walk on the beach only burns about 100 calories, that's pretty much a waste of time when you're eating 10 million calories a day!

5. Speedo's are still popular with some 70ish year old men.

6. There some people with a disproportionate tooth to tattoo ratio who seem to visit these resorts just to be cruel to the staff.

7. Aromatherapy is my new best friend.

8. The chance to win a 50cent plastic Frisbee will cause some people to cheat on the pool side trivia game.

9. If you are just the right size, string bikini bottoms become invisible.

10. I love Mayan coffee!

Have a great day!

Tori, my stomach hurts. Maybe it's the laughter. Maybe it's imagining just how much chocolate it took for your lesson. You're great!

You should trademark "Tattoo to Tooth ratio". Brilliant! And ya should have stayed longer and brought me with. We'd have definitely gotten through the drink menu!!!

lol your post made me laugh. And I have enjoyed looking at all the photos you shared. Sounds like a good trip! A vacation would feel so good right now but totally not the right timing for me. Have a baby due in a few weeks. And then I'm sure it would feel even more appealing heh. It's nice to see pics of you to put a face behind the blog. You and your husband make a lovely looking couple!

Speedos should be outlawed. They even look gross on michael Phelps. It's just too much visible sausage.
