Bienvenidos a Mexico!

Aren't ya'll impressed by my Spanish? I don't really speak it but I thought I'd try out a little Spanish on everyone and say "Welcome to Mexico" in Spanish!

Here's the car loaded up with all the suitcases and stuff you just can't live without for a week. Everytime we go somewhere, I find that I pack W-A-Y more than I need. I'm getting better but there's still room for improvement. My theory is you just never know what shoes you'll need for what outfit, right?

First stop was Beau Rivage in Biloxi. Hubby says we can stay overnight here and not have to drive as far the next day (????).....doesn't make sense to me either but I love the atmosphere and food

Sunset on the Mississippi River leaving port on Monday afternoon

In my haste to get photos loaded, this one got out of order, but you can still enjoy the sunset on the Carribean Sea

Here's my BIL, sister, me and hubby (left to right)....Randy is over 6' and Betsy is 4"! I call them Mutt and Jeff

Here we are on the grand staircase on captain's night

We played this funny game with a hula hoop where you have to pass it over your head, around your body, and to the next person while music is playing. When the music stops and the hula hoop is around you, you're out! I got out the first round but here's Betsy still hanging in there

This was the "hairy chest man" contest. This little guy was so funny...as you can see, he is very thin, not much chest hair, wore glasses and was really pale. He got a real charge out of dancing for the ladies but unfortunately he didn't win! I would have given him the trophy just for the effort he put into his dancing!

These burgers are the some of the best I've ever had

Creme' Brulee

Ice Creme "Sandwich"

Lobster tail (I didn't eat all these but they all put their tails on my plate when I started taking pictures)

Grand staircase in the atrium

Standing on the deck at Margaritaville in Cozumel

(oops, another picture out of order) Looking down at the bar in the atrium

Our home away from home for 5 days

Overlooking downtown Cozumel

This boat was docked next to ours....it looked like a floating city!

We usually go to Fat Tuesdays in Cozumel as we've found it to have good food and ice cold Cokes!

Jalepeno poppers

I love this store, it has lots of black and white clothes which I wear a lot of. They even have a web site

Margaritaville was not in Cozumel two years ago so we spent an hour or so here. Great atmosphere!

Strawberry daquari (it really is 5:00 somewhere)!

My sister (short one) and me in Yucatan, Mexico

We are probably the only ones in Mexico that went in Carlos 'n Charlies to use the bathroom and get a Coke

I've always loved this type pottery but I never buy it

Ahh, foot massage in Cozumel (hubby was massaging my neck and shoulders - it was heaven)!

Here we are at Fat Tuesdays (it is VERY HOT in Mexico in February)

I took many pictures but I just wanted to put some on so ya'll could enjoy a little trip to Mexico with me here in the middle of winter. We always try and go somewhere warm during February....it's such a nice break from the cold weather (well, cold to me).

Today, my mom and I are going to take a nostalgic trip to Lowndes County, Alabama where my grandparents lived and where my family lived for several years. I'm planning on taking lots of pictures to share. We are going to the old homeplace where my grandparents lived and where my mama and daddy got married many years ago. I have great memories of that home and all the good times our family had there.

Also, a large part of the civil rights movement took place right before my eyes in Lowndes County and Selma, Alabama. I'll tell a little history on all of that when I post about our trip.

Have a great Friday!

Hi Judy! Oh, I'm so glad you've had such a wonderful time! I've loved your great pictures. I just love to cruise and have been to those same places. We've never been on Carnival before, but it looks fantastic. Shoot! Now you have to start cooking and cleaning again! :)
Be a sweetie,
Shelia :)
