Viva la Mexico!!

Oh Mexico.. it seems like yesterday I was lying by the pool drinking a Miami Vice (half pina colada/half strawberry daiquiri).. but now i'm in this cold new england early spring consisting of 60 degrees and windy. The trip was amazing, it was so much fun going with a bunch of friends, because as much as a vacation getaway with the hubs is fabulous- its nice to have other people around. The boys can run off and go jet skiing, while the girls can sit by the pool and work on their tans. We stayed at the Reef Club in Cozumel, and somehow got upgraded to their 5star Aura resort, which made us feel like a bunch of A-listers (that sometimes do lifetime movies and make random commercial in Tokyo..)Most of the days consisted of lying next to the pool, eating yummy food, drinking lots of drinks, playing rounds of ping pong, making up pool drinking games, and usually passing out by 9pm.. We rented a Jeep Wrangler to take a trip around the island, and found a lot of beautiful deserted beaches and small tiki shacks filled with Coronas, Tequila and Dos Equis.. The waves were huge and we got to play like little kids at the beach, breaking out the boogie boards and getting devoured by the waves (i think i still have sand in my eyes).how funny is this picture [below]?! I feel like if there were an OC esque show based in Boston, this would be the cover of the DVD!
One day we even went snorkeling! This is huge for me, considering the last time was 16 years ago and I went in Disney's Typhoon Lagoon "swim with the fishies" pool and made a huge scene because I screamed my brains out through the snorkel (apparently I don't like seeing fish when I'm underwater). When the boat dropped all the people off in the water this time, it was hilarious b/c it totally reminded me of Titanic. All the girls were screaming looking for someone they knew. I still spazzed out a little when I saw the fish swimming underwater, but then one of them came RIGHT UP TO ME and looked me in the eye so at that point, I screamed, swam over to Gus and jumped on his shoulders and he had to swim with me clasping to him the rest of the time! We got a hilarious pic of us underwater from the boat crew, but I gotta scan that in (and justify paying $12 for my thighs looking huge underwater!)
Got a lot of cool pics, heres a taste of the trip. OH BTW, if you ever go on a group vacation with friends, be prepared to get asked if you are swingers by about 90% of your bartenders!!!! Like I would share the hubs with anyone.. they would get a knuckle sandwich and leg sweep from me. Although there WAS a clothing optional rooftop bar we checked out later on in the week (while we kept our clothes on, the only nudes we saw were this old couple that hogged the hot tub) Don't worry no one wanted to go in after they got out!

gus doing pilates on the beach. unfortunately I passed on this and drank cervezas insteadthe entire time I had planned on getting a group shot of us holding an issue of The Improper Bostonian (so they'd put us in their next issue), but of course that never happened so I figured I'd take one at the airport, which i obviously can't submit now, so i should get some sort of use out of it!
