Home at last

I feel much less likely to die this morning. Turns out I picked up some kind of weird inner ear virus that is responsible for the dizziness and general misery I've been feeling. Luckily, it should be turning a corner really soon and I have high hopes for salvaging the rest of this week. I managed to upload some pictures last night, despite my moaning and whining, because pictures really are the best distraction ever.
A few highlights of the Mexican vacation...
Drinking perfect cafe con leche in the morning.
Staying in Guanajuato for a few days.
Icy cold Pacifico, picked up from the corner market in a big bucket of ice.
Buying fun stuff, including this headband that I am now madly in love with and trying to decide if I can get away with wearing it every day I don't feel like washing my hair.
Oh, and seeing the village D's family is from, of course. You can't even begin to believe how gorgeous the light was in the evening. The picture doesn't do it justice.
Since we're talking about the highlights, I won't mention the fact that said village was over 120 degrees even at night and our bedroom was crawling with enormous water bugs that nearly unhinged me. I'll just say that it was gorgeous and they made us amazing food and Dustin's uncle can open beer bottles with his teeth, which is probably the most impressive feat I've ever seen. It still makes my mouth hurt when I think about it.

Coming up soon...baking/bridal shower extravaganza. Let's just say that I knew I was starting to recover this morning when I woke up and decided I definitely had time to make a double batch of sugar cookie dough before coming into work. It's hanging out in the fridge, waiting for me to come back and start rolling it out this evening.


  1. Your pictures are lovely, what a perfect trip! I love how your blog has a bit of a cooking theme going on, because I'm always looking for new recipes!

  2. Jealous! I'm craving a Mexican vacation now :)

  3. Thanks, ladies! It was a great trip for pictures.

  4. That second photo is gorgeous. I like how you can see small blocks of color from the cluster of houses. Pretty!
