My carry on is stuffed with plastic leis to shower on the "girls" at Logan airport, flamingo straws and cocktail napkins for our Margaritas, and plenty of books and snacks for the flight.
The trip was a great excuse to get a fun new summer purse to hold my passport, tickets, sunglasses and pesos.
I even packed a game for sun-burned nights back at the hotel. It's aptly called "Mexican Train".
We'll be living in bathing suits so I got this new one. DH treated me to the sun hat and a second pair of my favorite LL Bean Flip Flops.
The tag on the new bathing suit says that it's supposed to make me look 10 pounds lighter. I wasn't sure that it looked OK so I modeled it for DH when I got it home, explaining the 10 pounds lighter thing and asking him what he thought.
Needless to say, his comment, "You could try wearing two" wasn't overly reassuring!
"The girls" love the beach and they all tan beautifully. Not me. I have skin that likes to turn bright red and peel, even in the Maine sun. So it's SPF 70 and Aloe for me.
Here's the finished product. Aside from clothes, my suitcase is full of snacks for the hotel room, an orange pair of LL Bean flip flops, and a sippy cup we were all given by one of the girls . . . for drinks on the beach!
