WE ARE BACK FROM PARADISE..

Home from Cancun Mexico area..We stayed at Excellence all inclusive all adult Resort. Very nice place. The picture above was one of the piers we walked out on and would sit, very pretty and the sand was like powder sugar...
One of the nights we went off the resort to a Mexican restaurant with a large group. They had it all fixed up outside by the ocean with white lights everywhere. As we ate our dinner these Indian's did a story/dance and it was very good.. The guy I am standing but is all painted top to bottom.
LOL... I will just say this was after our farewell dinner our last night..I started doing the stripper dance....I will just say...I enjoyed my Tanquray and Tonic...
My camera didn't do this picture any good but this was a ship they set up for our food table for the farewell dinner. We watched them all day down at the ocean setting this up on the beach... at 3:00 they called it to be switched to the ball room because of the wind...Great job they did...with smiles I might add.
Another drink of choice through out the week was chocolate martini's and mudslides...oh so good. There was a great Martini bar here... Apple Martini's are one of my favorite..but not a Mexican one..lol
Another evening we ate at the Italian Restaurant...this was one of our appetizers...this was beautiful..and the shrimp was even better...DELISH!!!
My dear friend Tammie and I at the Presidential Suite for Cocktail party before dinner...First I loved these Giraffe's..and second each year on our trip Tammie and I get a new Pandora charm for our bracelets that means something from where we are.. so that is what we are trying to show in this picture..We got the Aqua one with silver around it...reminds us of our trip into Cancun and stopped at the lookout of the beautiful Aqua colored water at that part of the ocean...
Oh boy this is another picture of me in trouble...See that big huge pepper grinder in my hand?? Well the joke all week was when I got to loud talked to much or got out of control someone would set a salt or pepper shaker by me...saying calm down...and then it also came with my Hubby taking my drink away and giving me water...Yep then I was cut off...even the waiters were notified...not good..But everyone sure did have good laughs..So this night...don't know what i did or said but I will say the BIG GUY!!!! got up from his seat walked over to the waiters tray and brought the BIG PEPPER GRINDER to the table and sat it right in front of me....OH BOY!!!!!
On Wednesday 10 of us went into Playa Del Carma a little town to do some shopping...This picture is showing how GIRLS...THEY WANT TO HAVE FUN UN OHHH GIRLS JUST WANT TO HAVE FUN!!!! Sharlene,Tammie, Jamie and I found a great spot for my Hubby to take or picture...Oh the fun we had..
It was a fabulous trip...Our flight down and back was good. The weather this year was perfect. About 3 years ago when we where there it was so very hot and humid..we were wet the whole week not one bit of breeze...
We had an awesome welcome dinner our first night..with a show done with fire...on the ocean.
We saw a show one night that was a tribute to Michael Jackson...they did a fabulous job and the Mexican Michael Jackson was amazing..
I did a spa day.. while my Hubby went golfing....Can I say this was the most unbelievable spa.. They had a water hydrotherapy area you go through the stations before whatever treatment you are going to do...I have never done this or have I ever seen one like this...it was about an hour, then I went for my Deep Tissue Relaxation Message...I will just say.. the Mexican men may be short but the guy I had sure did have strength...I about lost my breath a couple times while he worked on my shoulder back area...Then I adjusted my breathing to breath through it...I was sore for 3 days after this massage but I had now stress and tightness at all...well till I got back home...lol I will say this particular message I did but won't do again..I like a much softer massage..therefore I will stick with my bi-weekly massages I get with my wonderful massotherapist...
We felt like we were on our honeymoon and totally enjoyed this fabulous week...I did take over 500 pictures....but this was a highlight of our week in paradise.
Our trip next year will be in Costa Rica...so I am going to get working on my strengthening and weight..we will be riding horses up the mountains and bungee jumping back down through the jungle and waterfalls...I feel if I ever want to bungee jump this would be the place..
I did a great job with my weight while gone..I gained 4.3 pounds and lost 4 of it already.. a lot of water retention...and um maybe those good drinks.....
Now on to preparing for the upcoming holiday's...
