I’m back from Mexico! We went to Playa del Carmen with Meeker’s family and some family friends of theirs. The trip was short, but refreshing, relaxing, and rejuvenating (RRR).


Look at the color of that ocean!

When I wasn’t swimming (which was often because the water was the PERFECT temperature), I was sunning/reading…

Or jumping off of things…

Or snorkeling in caves…

Or just moseying around on the beach with the scuzzband.

We also did a lot of walking.

It was a gorgeous ½ mile walk from our room to the beach.

Along the way we saw wildlife galore! Peacocks…

Flamingos…

And these guys…

The first time we saw one of these things Meeker said: Oh look, it’s…a mammal! We really have no idea what they were, but they kind of looked like lemurs with anteater noses. Anyone know?!

Oh, this is a food blog? Okay, here is what I ate…

I had about 100 plates just like this. Pineapple, beets, peppers, carrots, cucumbers…mmm fresh.

I ate a lot of mango and refried beans, too.

Standard Mexican fare.

There were often LaraBars on the beach.


And airport snacks along the way. (Also, I’ve changed my name to “Kayle”)

I am fortunate to have such generous in-laws that let us tag along on their vacation. I feel recharged and ready to soak up the last couple weeks of my summer! I’ll be back tomorrow morning with a giveaway winner (it’s not too late to enter!) and a push-up challenge update.

Oh, Mexico
It sounds so simple I just got to go
The sun’s so hot I forgot to go home
Guess I’ll have to go now…
