Mexico Monday

We are getting closer to the big anniversary trip to Mexico and I am super pumped!  I think I need to start listening to Luis Miguel to get myself even more excited.  I learned about his music last time we were in Mexico.  Apparently he is like the Michael Bolton of Mexico.
He is way better looking than Michael Bolton
Still exercising to get ready for the trip.  I ran 4 miles today in 55 minutes at the gym while watching the Yankee/White Sox game.  So I am like 80% packed.  Unfortunately you probably still can not tell when we are going since I started packing like a month ago.  I love packing and I am obsessed with it and making sure I do not forget anything.  Now I just need to get Justin to pack.  I also still need to go to Verizon to activate the international calling so I can text the neighbor to make sure senior Guido Gato is ok while we are away.  Maybe if he is good we will get him a kitty sombrero, ole!  Well more resort pics for your viewing.  Adios!

Fill in the Blank Friday

1.   Fridays are  the day you get all your work done so you can enjoy the weekend worry free!  They are also the day we have Taco Bell!!

2.    My husband, Guido cat, my friends, family, my home, and crafting   make me terribly happy.

3.  Something that inspires me is     my parents .

4.  If I had the day off today I would     probably sleep until 9:30am, go to the gym and work out, and do the other things I actually did do... went to the library and then to Gurnee Mills to scrapbook with Bonnie  .

5.  If I had to put a label on my home decor style, I would say my style is   "looks like children ages 5-15 live in this house."  I just have no style type for our house, we just have the things we enjoy in our home and that's that  .

6.  Concerning politics I would say I'm  __a republican.

7.  I'd like to go to  __on my vacation to Mexico soon and hope the time goes by slow so we can enjoy every minute of it!
