Stop. Eat. Cancun!

What's up, all!?

So.  I'm sitting here with a delicious Diet Coke, updating you all on my blog.  And I'm doing it from the beautiful Riu Cancun hotel.

I've never done the All-Inclusive thing before, and let me tell you... it's awesome.  Awesome and wonderful, and awful.  Margarita, Pina Colada, Blue Ocean, Stawberry Daquiri.  Tequila, tequila, tequila.  You guys, there is a liquor dispenser in our ROOM.  A full bottle each of rum, whiskey, vodka and tequila.  And a fridge full of mixers.  Everything is included, 24 hours, and it's awesome.  But I can tell you, there's no way I can "stop" this week.  I'm fully planning to come back to Milwaukee with an extra five or ten pounds on me.

It's a good thing I have three different bathing suits with me.  I have my "fat girl" bathing suit... the one that'll basically fall off of me if I were to go down a water slide or something... the bathing suit my Mom lent me which is a vintagey kind of halter/marilyn type of suit, and my "hot" suit I just got a few months ago.

Somehow, I'm wearing the white size 12's I bought from Old Navy.  They were too tight for me a few weeks ago and they're fitting today, so I don't know what that's all about.  I feel like I've been drinking SO MUCH SUGAR.

Anyhoo!  I'm here through the 20th, so I just thought I'd throw you guys an update about that.  I thought you might want to know why you might not be hearing from me for over a week.  Then I realized that happens even when I'm NOT in Cancun.  I do apologize again for the lack of updates and posts.  Things have been mad crazy with the studio and lots of shoots.

Speaking of, here's the latest one.  I did a promotional shoot for some fellow photographers.  For me, that's one of the greatest compliments I can get.  If another photographer wants me to do their promo images... that's rad!

Sounds super fun! Have an awesome time! And we don't go on vacations everyday, so enjoy your food and drinks a little! Routines are for home!

Not much else to say but "let it ALL hang out".

Have a fun trip!

Julia said...

I miss you already!

Have a drink (or 10) for me.

Oh, and please post pics because, again, you leave and the weather sucks here.

Wow, that sounds amazing. A vacation is just what I need. You only get to do the all-inclusive thing once in a while, so live it up!

I love the three bathing suits idea. Because sometimes it's best to be realistic with myself and take in a little glamour. That's why I can recover at home!

Soak up some rays for me too!
FYI... a lot of people end up losing weight while on vacation, even with the drinks (maybe Liquid Diet?!) So enjoy while you can... real life will be back soon enough! lol
