287/365 Almost Normal

I have felt very close to normal today. I enjoyed a nice deep tissue massage, some quality pool time and then a fantastic dinner with Matt and Michelle. We are even hanging out for some after dinner libations. I know, that’s shocking. Right?

286/365 Finally Ready for Food

Finally! After several spa treatments and some rest this afternoon, I’m finally ready for real food. Here we are outside the Aventura Cove side of the resort.

My photo for today was so fuzzy. Thanks to Matt and Michelle for providing a backup.

285/365 For Just a Little While

Even though I still wasn’t 100%, I managed to join Gil, Matt, and Michelle for our swim with dolphins excursion.  However, by the time we returned to the resort, the ickies had taken over again. It was nice to see Dr. Dominguez two more times today, with his three injections that made me feel better for a little while (note the sarcasm). More pills and sleep and dreams of feeling better for at least the last two full days of our trip.

283/365 Yin and …YAK


We spent the morning with Matt and Michelle at Tulum. It was SUPER hot and humid but it’s such a beautiful place that it’s easy to forget that.


The day did not end as wonderfully as it started. By 5:00 PM, this is what I looked like.

By 9:00 PM the resort doctor had been to my room twice, given me three separate injections to stop the vomiting and abdominal cramps, and prescribed three different pills to take.

Now, I pray for sleep.

Note to self: Avoid sushi in foreign countries.

274/365 Now I’m Ready for Vacation

GAHHHHHH!!!!! My custom Tervis Tumblers came in today. One for me and one for Michelle so that we can keep our adult beverages cooler longer in the hot Mexican sunshine.

Is it next week yet?

The new customization option on the Tervis website may just be the death of me….or at least my bank account. I now want to make a special cup for every event in my life and in the lives of everyone I know. Really…everyone Every event. If you know me and my love for plain ol’ Tervis cups, then you can appreciate just how true those last comments are.

The photo I used on these cups was taken on our first trip to Aventura back in 2008. I’m so excited about getting back there. Not only was this the place, four years ago, that Gil asked me to be his wife, we are also celebrating our 3rd wedding anniversary and we’re doing it with friends that mean the world to us.

153/365 Countdown

Gil and I are planning our summer vacation this year and it’s extra super duper exciting because we have asked our friends Matt and Michelle to join us. We had the first of what may be many planning sessions today at lunch. We set the dates and decided on which of the Palace Resorts we’ll be visiting. We have decided to visit the very resort where Gil proposed to me back in 2008, Aventura Spa Palace.

Apparently Michelle is as excited as I am. She posted this on Facebook just minutes after we left the restaurant. I really ❤ her!

P.S. GLEE = Gil + Lee
