What I learned from 5 days in Mexico.

Westin Lagunamar Ocean Resort
We escaped last week for 5 days. It was a glorious respite for a variety of reasons {some of which I'll reveal in another post}.

But today I'll simply share a few insights I learned from our recent excursion to Cancun. 

1. Everything is better when Mommy starts the day with a mimosa. Everything.

2. Of course, it also doesn't hurt when there is no laundry to be done, lunches to be made or buses to catch. But even that would be more palatable if someone brought me a mimosa every morning.

3. Watching your kids interact and swim with dolphins is absolutely worth the expense {even when the expense is an amount equivalent to the gorgeous Burch boots you hoped to score this Fall}. 

4. Looking "good" in a bikini is relative. Sitting next to an overweight sixty-year-old can help perpetuate the illusion.

5. Skipping school with the kids to enjoy a self-imposed Fall Break, only six weeks into the school year, is always the right choice. Mommy guilt notwithstanding. 

6. Despite what you hear on the news, all of Mexico is not littered with dead bodies.

7. The level of service in Mexico far exceeds what we pass off as service in the US. 

8. The public restrooms in Mexico are far cleaner than those in the US. Sparkling clean in fact.

9. Vacationing is far more enjoyable when someone else picks up the tab {more on that in another post}.

10. Everything is better when Mommy ends the day sipping a margarita.
