what i learned on my honeymoon in cabo san lucas, mexico

First, my HUSBAND (so weird), Shane and I would like to hug and thank each and every one of you who made our wedding day so perfect. We are surrounded by amazing clients, co-workers, friends, and family, and we are so very lucky to have all of you in our lives. Our special day wouldn't have been the same without all of your warm wishes and smiling faces! We couldn't have asked for a better day, and are now so ready to spend the rest of forever together. After the wedding we took off for our long awaited honeymoon. We spent a week in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. Now, don't get me wrong, it was wonderful! But if there are a few things I learned while in Mexico, it's these things:

  • Mexico does not believe in sour cream. How can you eat Mexican food without sour cream?!
  • Speaking the Spanish language feels very odd to me. However, Shane quite enjoyed it (maybe a little too much ;) ).
  • Pack sunscreen, or you pay $20 for a small tube. You'll still get burnt by the way.
  • Shane and I + saltwater + major heat = no bueno
  • Drinking cocktails around the clock is socially acceptable.
  • The buffet has endless amounts of shrimp. No rush to try to eat it all.
  • Breakfast burritos are nonexistent. Very sad.
  • Stay at your resort. Or be very afraid.
  • Shane loves oysters. And piña coladas.
  • If you are going to have swimming contests in the pool, make sure Shane packs his nasal spray.
  • The sand is hot, and course. Make sure you have your flip-flops in hand.
  • Jet skiing on the ocean is very different than on the lake. You'll get some air on those ol' waves.
  • Every souvenir looks the exact same, but each seller will tell you differently.
  • I love the USA.
  • Try a banana daiquiri. Now.
  • Taxi drivers do not understand the term 'car sick'.
  • It only rains a handful of times a year in Mexico. We were lucky enough to get about 4 days of rain, of course.
  • Book a shuttle before arrival. Or you will be scared, trust me.
  • Upgrade to the ocean view room, you'll be very happy you did.
  • Don't take for granted the ability to read signs.
  • We don't suggest flying American Airways.
  • Shane didn't seem to believe me when I told him that the sun actually burns you more when it is cloudy. Or that it is harder to breath at lower elevation than at high. (Maybe I made both of those up, but they seemed right at the time.)
  • Again, I love America.
  • I love my HUSBAND.
  • I am so very lucky.
