muy caliente

*Sorry it took so long to write about my trip! I'm pretty lazy about uploading pix. Better late than never right?

We woke up at the un-fashionista-ly hour of 4:30 am to catch our early flight to Cabo. Can't believe I had the sense to actually apply some eyeliner and mascara.

Had a loooong layover at LAX.

I hadn't been to LA in years and I guess I didn't remember what a dump LAX is. Seriously. The shuttle we had to ride between airlines was so sketchy and the airport bathrooms? *shudder* Anyway, after a couple hours of anticipation, we boarded (is that a word??) our plane and by the time I wake from my nap, we'd arrived!

The weather was perfect for hitting the pool right before dinner! Look at just how amazing the pool is! There were swim-up bars at three of the six pools!

Did I mention that we were staying at an all-inclusive hotel? So everything was "free"! I can't tell you how nice it was to be able to just go out and not have to worry about watching my wallet at the pool!

Loved just being able to get food any time I fancied a bite!

Dinners at the hotel were so-so but lunches were absolutely yummy! One day we had the most delicious arroz con pollo and the next day was beef fajitas. I'm drooling just thinking about it!

And by the way, yes that is a huge arse cauldron of beef fajitas!

One night, we ventured out to the city and had dinner at the Crazy Lobster - and crazy it was! $18 for steak and lobster? I'll take two please!

After dinner we took a lovely stroll down to the marina. It really is gorgeous there, if you ignore the slumminess. D'oh.

And being that we're basically a couple of old fogies, we decided it wasn't in our best interest to partake in the festivities at Cabo Wabo and Gigglin' Marlin.

(I'd gone to a bachelorette party several years ago, and I can attest to never wanting to relive those cage-dancing nights.)

Back at the hotel, they had tons of activities during the day. I decided to partake in water aerobics. Little did I know that "water aerobics" is actually just an allotted time for fat people to play in the pool!

Hunny Bunny, whom is usually quite against any sort of participation, even joined in a match of water polo! Oh what a little bit of sun will do to a grouch!

The rest of the trip was taken up by naps in the sun and naps in the shade.

I can't wait to go back!
