Hola Amigos!

We are back from Isla Mujeres, Mexico after an amazing week with my family.

My brother splits his time between fighting wildfires and traveling the world (why doesn’t my life sound as exciting?!) so spending a week with him and my parents was such a treat as we are rarely all together.

We watched the waves. We ate. We swam. We went to the beach. We had cocktail hour. And we repeated it all a lot.

My trip in numbers: 

4: days I ate ceviche

50: times I stated that I needed to eat ceviche every day of the trip

16 : hours spent at the beach

4: times I was ridiculed for reading a book on making friends by my brother (FYI: I loved MWF Seeking BFF)

2: trips to the market for pescado frito (fried red snapper)

1: night spent dancing until 4 am

6: mornings of coffee on the roof

about 22: ounces of sunscreen I applied throughout the week

questionable: Mexican beers consumed (Modelo, Dos Equis, Pacifico…)

6: days I rocked a two-piece

2: shades my hair lightened throughout the week

2: amazing meals had at Mango Cafe

0: times I took my running shoes out of my suitcase

7: dips in the pool

4: snacks that included guacamole

3: sunsets watched on the roof

1.3: margaritas consumed (not a big fan!)

many: attempts at espanol

28: comments on how blue the water was
