Hello everyone! I'm back from my week long cruise to the Mexican Riviera. That was the ship I was on.

I came home with a cold and so I'm not feeling well. I just wanted to say hi and show you a few pictures from Cabo and let you all know who the winner of the giveaway was.

This is the famous Arch that you can only see if you are on a boat.

The beaches were beautiful. Again, you could only get to these by a boat.

The water was so clear and blue. It almost looked fake. Look you can even see the fish swimming around. You could see all the way to the bottom of the ocean.

I fell in love with this little girl. She came up to me and I had to buy a necklace from her. There was no way I could say no to that little face. I wanted to take her home with me.

Well that's it for now. I'll post more about my trip when I feel better.

Now on to the winner. I did the random number drawing and the winner is... Melissa at Glued to Paper. So Melissa please email me your address.

See you all real soon.

Oh I also wanted to thank everyone who took such great care of Elton while I was gone! He loved all of you.

Elton was no problem, we just talked sweet and he licked our faces.

Glad you're home but I'm sorry you caught a cold. I love the pictures of the arch and the beach.
Thanks for visiting me. My problem is that I'm not excited by anyone who's running.

Welcome home! It's always fun to go away, but it is wonderful to come home again. Hope you feel better soon. You were great to have scheduled posts while you were gone. Your posts are always so interesting. I'm sure your week of fun in the sun and relaxation has inspired you with lots of new and interesting topics to share with us!!

I took that cruise this Summer (we celebrated my parent's 50th wedding anniversary). We didn't get our shore excursion in Cabo due to a tropical storm. I took almost exactly the same picture of the Arch, though!

Welcome home Joanne! I'm sorry you caught a cold -- that is a drag -- I hope you feel better soon.

I bet you had a fantastic time though -- your photos are beautiful!

We had lots of fun in Key West ...it is such a quirky little island! Yes, I took the island tour too and saw the cemetery, and Pat Croce's pirate museum was fun!

Hugs, Pat
