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!

A vacation on the beach sounds amazing right now. I guess I will just hit up Costco for the churro and sit in the sandbox until the time comes.

K said...

You are a lucky woman to be sitting on the warm beaches of Mexico. ENJOY! The fabrics are so warm and bright...just what I need to see in snowy/rainy Idaho.

So I would LOVE to win this LOVE LOVE LOVE :)

Thanks for the wonderfully relaxing pictures and for the giveway.

Those churros look like some Turkish pastry-snack but here they are soaked in boiling sugar-water for a few seconds - no filling - and they taste good with some cinnamon.

Have a great time!

mujus said...

Thanks for the colorful and relaxing pictures AND for the giveaway... Now I feel lazy too :)

The simple churros look like a pastry-snack we have here in Turkey but here they are soaked in boiling sugar-water solution for a few seconds after fried and they taste good with cinnamon.
