Iberostar Grand

When we got married in 2008 we did a destination wedding. It was seriously the best time EVER!! We got married at the Iberostar Grand Resort in Mexico. It is an all-inclusive Adults Only resort and they catered to our every need. I miss it so much and Brian has promised me that we will go back for a milestone anniversary and renew our vows. I can't wait to go back!!


Anyways the whole point of this post is that they were recently awarded the Best All Inclusive Resort in the WORLD by Trip Advisor!! If you are looking for a great place to go and relax this is the place!!

Easter 2011

We had a fun and relaxing Easter. Addison's favorite gifts from the Easter Bunny were Play-doh and a Dora book. The pool is finally warm enough that we spent much of the afternoon swimming. Addison stayed on the stairs of the pool and gathered all her toys around her. We skipped her nap to dye Easter eggs and Addison made sure to use her hands to dip the eggs, resulting in green hands. She was also fascinated that the eggs actually cracked when dropped so she did that a couple times until I had to step in and remove the eggs(yes, I know...such a mean mommy...lol!!)

Wordish Wednesday

After having my current phone for over 2 years I decided it was time to take advantage of my upgrade discount. I'm picking up this beauty today!! Brian always says I play on my phone too much. Poor guy has no clue that the phone is 4G so the "playing on my phone" has no ending in sight...lol!!!

Sick Again

For the 2nd time in the last 5 weeks Addison and I are both sick :-( Yesterday I stayed home with her because she was up most of the night coughing, crying, runny nose, etc. Dr says it's viral and it'll take it's course but I hate seeing her so miserable. I've been running the humidifier and last night she did much better and is back at daycare today. Let's hope this passes quickly!!

One a happier note...my copy of Two Kisses for Maddy is supposed to arrive today!!
