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.

Chocolate filled churros ... that would be enough to make me want to stay forever. But, if I can't enjoy the chocolate with you, I would love to stitch up something sweet with the new fabric! Ha!

Ok,the fabric looks gorgeous, but seriously, I want a cajeta stuffed churro. I didn't even know they could stuff them! Totally brilliant.

Peggy said...

Umm how delicious! If you decide to purchase said truck and need help making churros I'll be more than happy to help! Festive fabric and churros, how can a girl go wrong? Oh just all in some mangos and avocados and life would be virtually complete (as long as my hubby is by my side too!)
