Hola! Did you miss me?

Did you even notice I was gone?  No?  Well, I was in what felt like paradise (Puerto Vallarta and Punta Mita)for 8 days where we:

Drank margaritas and ate our weight in guacamole

Took part in an amazing Mexican parade:

Went whale watching

Drank things that were lit on fire

Stayed at a luxury resort where this was the view from the lobby

and a butler brought us coffee daily on our terrace (which overlooked a golf course AND the ocean)

we saw lots of these

and did lots of this (to combat the guac and magaritas)

and left with lots of memories

Back to the real world of work, cold, snow, laundry etc. 

reality bites.  :)

So jealous! I think I feel like some guac, ooh and I have avocados in the kitchen. Thanks for the inspiration, although surely I do not need any more snacks at nearly 10PM. Hope you had a blast, looks like it.
