Throwback Thursday – #tbt – Mexican Beach Wedding (February 2003)

So, for “family movie night” last weekend, Shea and I decided to hook up the video camera we bought back ~2002 but have rarely used lately (“Hey kids, that big boxy thing is what an iPhone used to look like!”) to show the kids our wedding video from Mexico in 2003. Pace watched about five […]

Music Monday – “Well I kept right on driving/Until I hit the ocean/Found a small cantina down on Monterrey Way/I met up with a girl down there but she did not speak the English/I probably coulda had her too, but all I knew how to say was/Una mas cerveza por favor senorita”

Watching lots of videos of our resort and someone used this song as the background for one of their videos… “Una Mas Cerveza” – Tommy Alverson

Friday Fun Link – 24 Glorious Ways To Drink More Tequila

I’ve never been a big fan of tequila. In fact, Shea and I have a bottle we brought back from one of our earliest Mexico trips around fifteen years ago that we had never cracked. Never cracked, that is, until, after a summer that ended with a bunch of tequila shots plus knowing we were […]

Throwback Thursday – #tbt – 10 Reasons I Drive A 10 Year Old Car

So, this is a bit of a different take on “Throwback Thursday” but since my car is in the shop right now after being rear-ended about a month and a half ago (and since I’m driving around a brand new rental with all the newest features – backup camera!  Bluetooth connectivity!  Heated seats that actually work!) […]

And the countdown is officially on…    

Saturday Snap – Blushing Bride Wine

Cleaned out our basement store room the other day and found this cool gift we got for our wedding from a relative who works as a graphic designer. Hard to believe that next March will be our 15th wedding anniversary and we’ll once again be back in the Mayan Riviera to celebrate.  Might even have […]

Throwback Thursday – #tbt – The Premier of Mexico? (February 2017)

It’s funny how things swirl and combine in unexpected ways. I haven’t written a lot about the ongoing Sask NDP Leadership Race (yet) and I haven’t posted a lot about the Mexican resort we’re planning to go to next February (yet). But, as I think back to the Mexican resort we visited last February, I can’t […]

Saturday Snap – Our Seasonal Site Favourite Memories

It’s a silly thing but I sort of felt ripped off that, even after many provincial parks had a fire ban all year, the one we ended up at only implemented a fire ban for the last long weekend of the summer. We still had fun shoving some red Christmas lights into our fire pit […]

Friday Fun Link – (Over The) Moon Palace, Cancun

Shea, the kids and I are planning to go on a winter holiday with my parents next February. My folks and I went in to talk to the CAA Travel Agent earlier this week (my thought: “People still use travel agents?”  My parents’ thought: “You book all your travel online?”) 😉 Going in, we had […]

Throwback Thursday – #tbt – Skunk Cabbage Boardwalk (June 2010)

Sounds like an appealing hiking spot…
