Well, it's been a while since I've posted but work has been crazy and so has any free time that I have these days. However, I'm finally leaving it all behind for a week in beautiful Playa Del Carmen Mexico with B. It's our first time there ever, and I couldn't be more excited. Our field seasons are going to be crazy this year and during that time we usually only see each other as I head out the door and he heads in or the other way around. So we figured we might as well have a little vacation now before the madness starts. To get myself in the mood I made a few of these brightly colored fish scrubbies from some bright scrap yarn I had. The photo was taken in the last light of the day that I could catch so they aren't as vibrant as they are in person, but they were fun and easy to make. Rachel inspired me to do this after she sent me some with my Christmas package and I simply had to try them out for myself. They are now on their way to Illinois to 2 adorable little boys that are turning 1 and 3 this month. I thought they might be a fun little thing for them to play with in the bathtub just to let them know I'm thinking about them and their parents while living so far away.
Anyway, I will be back in a week with more photos to post of Mexico, but in the mean time I will leave you with chorus to one of Brett's favorite songs which has now become one of mine:
" I got my toes in the water, ass in the sand, not a worry in the world, a cold beer in my hand.... life is good today, Life is good today!......Adios and vaya condios!"
