The Mexican Vacation Story
I picked up these cute hand blown blue Margarita glasses in Cancun, Mexico years ago when I was single and took a last minute vacation. Wish I could do that now because when being a mom of two toddlers, I need a vacation more now than when I worked full time and took classes at night.
That trip was so much fun. I remember the young bartender giving us free shots at the bar and another American guy stating “We got free drinks when she showed up!” I also remember the bad sunburn I got on the first day. Note to self: Apply sunscreen immediately after exiting the bus!
