Excellence is Excellent

For Spring Break we headed to Cancun, Mexico! I was hesitant about going to Cancun especially for Spring Break. I didn't want to run into any girls gone wild mess! But let me just tell you, Playa Mujeres exceeded our expectations. We were on the Northern most tip of Cancun and not anywhere near the tourist attracted area. Only our resort and its sister resort were in Playa Mujures. Our days were spent laying by the pool, phones off, reading books and relaxing!

This was our room. Nice King size bed, couch to chill and watch TV, large jacuzzi in the room, balcony overlooking the pool with a large bed thingy (where many naps were taken!) and a mini refridgerator stocked daily!

Now to the food...Oh man...We ate till our little hearts desired(I am going to pay for it now, but it sure was nice at the time)
Mexican Food Yummy!

Japanese! Soo stinkin good - we ate there twice! :)

What a view for breakfast!

Dress up nights were so fun! Each night we would head to dinner and then there was live music and a show to follow!

I think that is enough for now! Maybe in the next few days I will get some pictures up of the resort, pool, beach and the much anticipated bike tour :)!

Playa Mujeres Preview!!

Today has been a movie kind of day here in Cancun. It has been raining all morning, but it isn't stopping us from having fun! We have been watching movies, ate a yummy breakfast, (it gave me some time to work on my paper!) and has given us time to relax and give our skin a break from the sun. Later we are going to hit the gym, possibly take a bike tour if the rain lets up and check out the game room!

This place has been fabulous. Not one thing to complain about. Not a care in the world! It has been so great to catch up on R&R and enjoy some quality time together. We would recommend this to anyone!!

Here are a few pictures from the trip!

Needless to say I have not gotten a lot of sleep the past 2 nights. For those of you that really know me, you know that I need sleep. (That means at least 8 hours preferably 9 hours!) But between Monday and Tuesday I have had 3 tests. I am happy to say that I did survived them...only to look like I got hit by a mack truck! I couldn't even get my body off the couch today to go outside for a run. And we haven't had weather as nice as this in a LONG time! Taking a nap was much more needed, I guess. Anyways, that is enough of yall hearing about my "tough" few days, but I wanted to share a "first" that I experienced on Sunday night.

A little background: So, it is interesting what you learn about yourself when you get married. Bryan learned that he GRINDS his teeth. I am the hardest sleeper in the world, but lately I haven't slept all that great. When I lay down to sleep I think of the million things that I have to do with the race or stuff that I have to do with school. With that being said, Sunday night, I was going to bed late, from studying, and since I can't fall asleep in 2 seconds flat, which normally would not be any problem. Since I couldn't fall asleep fast, and Bryan had been asleep for several hours already....all I hear was Bryan GRINDING his teeth. Oh make a long story short, after a lot of kicking, hitting, yelling, ear plugs I ended up here....

Here's to better sleeping the rest of the week!

Weekend Fun!

This Friday we had a fun night with our friends Ross & Emily. Ross and Emily go to our same church and we are in the same marriage bible study together. We have thourouly enjoyed getting to know them as a couple and individually! They are so much fun to hang out with! So, this Friday was Emily's birthday!! Woohoo! We met them for dinner in Dallas and wow, let me just say they open our eyes to food, new things and places! :) I love it and I am amazed at how brave Bryan has been! (Debbie you would not believe the things your son is eating :) So anyways, we went to Emily's pick and ate some awesome food! We ate at Teppo Yakitori & Sushi Bar By far, this was some of the best Asian food I have ever had. We had sea bass, grilled rice, california rolls, spicy tuna & salmon rolls and we even tried salmon shashimi! This was raw and as fresh as salmon could be. It was so good & fresh it tasted like it was cooked. Bryan even tried it and liked it! :)

Needless to say it was great and we enjoy having Emily and Ross who stretch us to eat more than just Mexican food!

The whole gang..

Happy Birthday Emily!
