I'm Back!

Hola amigas y amigos!  I am officially back home after our week in Mexico, and I have to say - having the Caribbean Sea as your backyard makes you an awful lot more motivated to get out of bed in the morning.  All-inclusive resorts leave something to be desired when it comes to food, and it's nice to be able to brush my teeth with tap water again, but other than that, being back to reality kind of makes me want to curl up and go back to sleep.  There's something to be said for spending an entire day outside and never once needing to put on shoes. (The same goes with brushing your hair, as can be seen in the picture below.)

This was by far the most relaxed trip I've ever taken to another country with Robbie's band.  I was in bed by 1 or 2 AM most nights (which is early for me, even at home), and my days were spent lounging by the ocean and/or pool.  Rough life, I know.  I did venture out to a few of the shows at night, but for the most part, I made sure to occupy my time with things like staring off into space and sipping on tequila drinks.  It didn't suck.

I had very little internet access while south of the border, so I have all sorts of catching up to do today with work, but I plan to post more photos and stories from our vaca this week.  I hope you guys enjoyed the seriously awesome guest posters who hijacked Bubby and Bean in my absence.  Thanks again to Kelly + Brandi from Mucho Mucho Bueno Bueno, Amy from A is for Ampersand, Kate from Scathingly Brilliant, Julie from Olivine's Charm School, Heather from Heather Liebler, and my little sis/food editor extraordinaire Morgan for filling the blog with goodness while I was away! 

More to come...

P.S. I'll be announcing the winner of the January Giveaway tonight, so make sure you stop back by and see if you won!
