South of the border

IMG_8438-1

I’m soaking up the sun in Mexico….with four layers of sunscreen on mind you.   If the sun touches my bare skin I turn into a giant walking freckle within 2 seconds flat…no exaggeration.

IMG_8421-1

We are being super duper lazy…. I’m a master at being super duper lazy.  My poor husband has been in the churro truck line pretty much the whole time we’ve been here fetching chocolate filled churros for his lazy wife and his kids sleeping on the beach.  He loves us.

IMG_8439-1

Before we left I got these fun charm packs….this fabric line is so bright and summery…it reminds me of Mexico.  The fabric is Treasures and Tidbits by Piece O’ Cake Designs for Robert Kaufman.

4-10-13

And since I’m pretty sure I’m going to be stuck on the beach in a churro induced coma for the next week…I’m going to give them away.  Leave a comment on this post to enter….I’ll choose a random winner sometime in a few days. 

P.S.  If  you never hear from me again…its because I’m the proud new owner of a churro truck and I’m staying here forever.

Pin It!

mexico sounds SO nice right about now! It's warming up here, but not nearly as fast as I would like :o)

Danni Girl said...

Mmmm... chocolate filled churros. Do they offer a cream cheese "salsa" on the side for those? If they don't, you should probably bring that idea up. :)

Pink Petunia said...

Yum! sounds so good. I love Mexico and those charm squares. Would be great to get them.

Jopsy said...

Diane E W said...

Trip sounds great, nice , quiet, relaxing, so much better than sitting behind this desk trying to look like I am working. I am taking vacation in 2 weeks, I too am going on a lush trip.....all the way to the storage parking lot to hopefully clean out a unit and have a yard sale. What's wrong with this picture? Beach...parking lot? Lovely fabric I just know it would make my vacation better, maybe I could slip in some sewing.

Cathy said...

Chocolate filled churros?? I think my kids would be eating those all day long, too!! And, probably me, too!

Irelle said...

Enjoy the sunshine! I love the fabrics!

Gidget said...

OMG! what a peaceful sounding trip...while I watch the rain pour down...
Enjoy every minute and all the sun-induced sleep you can get!

Helen said...

I have no idea what a churro is but I guess they're nice?! I'm also a potential walking freckle (with a charming shade of pink as a background colour!) so the closest I come to a tan is if my freckles join up! Hope you're having a fabulous holiday and thanks for a great giveaway!

Lori said...

I can't even explain how jealous I am of your Mexico trip (we got a dump of about 5" of snow overnight) but yay for you! That fabric looks fabulous and would surely soothe my snow-addled mind some... :)
