Viva Las Mexico

We just got back from our much anticipated get-a-way to Mexico! We set sail from San Diego last Monday. {For the record I wish I could give a piece of mind to the engineers who designed the road systen in San Diego. We were 2 blocks from a gas station and couldn't get there... Long story.} Our ship was different than I thought it would be... it was reminicent of an old 80's Las Vegas Casino. Considering how much I Hate Vegas I was so excited for our days off to Cabo San Lucas and Ensinada! I had thought it so fitting that we had a little piggy waiting for us at our room the first night. All to fitting for how much we ate throughout the trip!Chillin' on bus ride to see the La Bufadora in Ensanada! {We got to see a whale by the shore which was so super cool!}

Cabo was so fun! These pictures can in no way do justice to how funny and cool it was. We decided to go horse back riding... We were told to get on a bus and we would go to a "Ranch" where horses would be waiting for us. After a long ride through town {which was scary} and ride out to middle of no where, this is where they dropped us off. The Ranch...

Meet our tour guide... Did you know that every Native in Cabo that we met happens to have a relative in Utah? I swear that they just pick one town out of every state to memorize so that they will have something in common. The guy who booked our tour knew someone in Layton. This guy was brothers with Jon Stockton.He led us through the desert which was totally trashed and yucky, to this cool cactus! Great photo opp! As well down to the beach for a quick photo.

Highly recomend "Lover's Beach" in Cabo it was fantastic!

Amigo!

I totally scored in Ensanada! There are two things that people usually shop for in Ensanada - Silver and Leather. I had no intention of buying either, but when I saw this bag I really wanted it! The tour guide showed us how to determine real leather prior to shopping... The bag was $130, I asked if he would do the test to see if it was real. Really hoping it was pleather so that I could get it for $5. Unfortunately it was real {The guy thought I crazy, since I am sure I was the only one looking for pleather. little did he know how cheap I am}. After Justin convinced me it was fine to get it and after some massive haggling, I now have a real leather stinking cute bag!

How fun to get away from life for a little while (even if it's to Vegas on a ship!)

PS: I love that bag!

If you think San Diego is bad DON'T come to Michigan. Horrilbe! Ever hear of a Michigan left? After almost a year and a half I still don't really get it. Turn right to make a left? Yeah. Okay. Driving in San Diego didn't bother me at all. I miss it in fact. A lot! At least they have turn lights.
