We had a wonderful vacation.  Arrived home yesterday after a very long stay in the Atlanta airport… lesson learned – a one hour layover is not enough time to clear customs and go back through security.

Where were we?

We were in Cancun, Mexico.  We earned a free trip (airfare, room and board) to Cancun working with Southern Living at Home.  So really a big thanks to everyone that ordered All You or hosted a home party this year.  We give up most of our commission on the magazines, but it was worth all the email and questions to have 4 days alone with my Husband!!   I will never push business here but if you ever have questions about direct sales just ask!  I met so many wonderful people (including the now infamous Coupon Connie of Buford GA). 

I hope you guys managed without me.  I tried to stay as up on what was going on but we were just having too much fun most days.  The motto of the trip for me was do everything that we couldn’t do if our kids were there so we rented mopeds, rode little jet boats, and kayaked.  Went riding all over town on the buses and learned the art of bartering.  We walked at least 10 miles in all (I can only imagine the whining that would have created with the kids).  The thrill for me was just getting a passport and getting using it.  I had never needed one before so it was fun!

Now that we are back I have work to do.  If you emailed I am working on my inbox, also I should have Rite Aid and Walgreens up during nap time.  I also now have to start working on not saying “Hola” to every person I see.

      Congratulations on your wonderful, child-free vacation. Children are treasures, but they aren’t the best travel partners. Last summer we went to Boston, and all my then-four-year-old daughter wanted to do was feed the pigeons and the squirrels on the Boston Common :(

    • Shannon

      Welcome Back! Sounds like you guys had a great time.

    • Amanda C

      I’m so glad that you and hubby had such a wonderful time!! Congrats! It was almost like you weren’t gone though, because of the “automatic” posts…it was really nice! Thanks for doing all of that extra work ahead of time for us!
