22.3.10

Well that was nice


Hey!  I am back.  It was so relaxing and wonderful.   Unfortunately, most of the pictures on my camera are of other people (actually very fortunately for me since they were a great group of people and I am so happy to have goofy and fun memories of them!) and other people have pictures of me on their cameras being goofy and silly, but here are a few until I can do a proper vacation post once they send me all of theirs.  Or maybe this is really enough.  I know I was going to show my outfits and what not, but really that last photo of me is pretty representative of what I wore the entire week.  We just laid on the beach or in hammocks on our deck, snorkeled and swam, danced all night to live island bands (we were in Roatan, an island off of Honduras), rode horses on the beaches, pet dolphins and laughed our freaking asses off everyday (and it was all inclusive!!).  They told everyone it was my birthday one night so the band played an extra hour for me, and I got extra cake and candles to blow out (I am a sucker for a good birthday party, even if it is a fake one!) Oh man.  It was fun.  Its pretty hard to put pants on now.  I wore flip flops and shorts today despite the chilled morning.  I am looking forward to getting back to blogging too.  Well, actually, it feels a little strange to be back.  Really strange.

Good news though!! The surviving staff at the Eating Disorder clinic contacted me while I was there and are trying to keep it going! We have a few new guests coming in, or they are in, or something, so I think I am back in a job (even if it will be for free for a little while.) I have not talked to anyone since I have been back so I am a bit fuzzy on the details, but its pretty exciting.  Allright.  Cool.  So. . . ya.

COMMENT OF THE DAY:  Thank you all SO much for the comments about my bathing suit pic! I had a question on my "ask me anything" form about my eating and yoga routine so I will do a full post about that, but in answer to this question, I was very very lucky and very very disciplined with the lotion and oils wile I was pregnant and did not get stretch marks.  My son was 9.5 lbs and I gained just over 30 lbs during my pregnancy, so it was all just right out front, and I was religious about rubbing oil into my skin all over every day since I wanted to avoid them if I could.  My mom got them in the very end with me (also a 9.5 lbs baby) so I was trying to prep for the end when the baby drops, but I was just lucky. I do have a few stretch marks on my hips from growing my lady curves during puberty, but I use gradual self tanners and they sort of cover them and make them blend.  I am sorry I don't have more substantial info on this, but I will do a full post on my regimen by the end of the week. Thanks again. :D

You look glowing, happy and just gorgeous!
I LOL at your last pic, but you rock that bikini bod, which makes me wonder, did you ever have stretch marks? I mean, I'm a mom like you and while I'm back at my pre-baby weight, I can't get rid off my streth marks? Any secrets you want to share on how to achieve such awesome bod? ;)

Meggstatus said...

This look so relaxing. Although last time I wend horse back riding after about 10 minutes I was screaming that my vagina hurts, and I'm to skinny to do this shit, so I had to turn around. Hmmm maybe too much information but sometimes I just have to share.

:)

Kelley Anne said...

Oh my goodness, that looks amazing. We've been talking about taking a beach vacation and discussing various places, but not for this year. It looks like you had the best time!

YAAAAAAAAY Vacation!!!!

I'm so happy you got to go have a wonderful time, and I'm also happy that you got the good news about your job (even though it is sad that your job is necessary, depending on the nature of it, and all).

I hope your spring-time comes so quickly that you barely notice you're not on a tropical island anymore! Welcome home!

I loved these photos! I was so excited when you mentioned Roatan! I was there Dec 2008 to celebrate our first wedding anniversary. We stayed at the Captain Morgan Resort, I believe. What a stunning little island, isn't it? The people, the beaches, the vibe..ahhh.

Welcome back!
