Confessions of A Body Form Mannequin

For my birthday last year, my mom gave me something that I have been wanting for the better part of a decade. Dress-making is so much more awesome now <3

spring break!

Today has been my first true "day off" since spring break started. I woke up, Blake made us breakfast, I played angry birds for way too long and I took Bella on a 2.25 mile walk/run. We are both out of breath, but we're feelin' pretty good :) Next up: Dinner. I wonder what we'll do tomorrow!

Well I just got back yesterday from my week-long cruise. We stopped in Cabo San Lucus, Mazatlan, and Puerto Vallarta. It was a blast. Here are a few pictures :)

This is me and Blake in the main dining hall on the formal dress night.

Blake's shirt did not match his tie, but you can't really tell in the picture :)

Here we are waiting for a taxi in Puerto Vallarta.
We got to spend the day in Puerto Vallarta at La Palapa bar and grille, which was so nice because we were seated on the beach :) we didn't even have to get up for shopping, they brought everything to us.
Me and Blake at La Palapa.
Here's a little monkey our stateroom attendant made for us :)

This is me and Blake in Mazatan.
