Hello from Sunny Mexico

In just 2 and a half weeks, I will be going to Mexico with hubster and friends for some sun, drinking, relaxing, drinking, snorkeling, drinking, swimming, drinking. And - oh yeah... to attend our friends' wedding.

So, it being February in chilly Canada - my summer wardrobe has been far from my mind. Enter Hez checking out her drawers and closest and wondering WHAT THE HECK I wore last summer. I've got nothing!!!

Which is why I found myself hustling off to the lovely stores in and around the fabulous shopping district where I work. (Trust me. I must exercise will power OFTEN. I work at Yonge and Bloor. Have good income. No children. Do the math, Internet.)

Anywho. Point is? I went a little crazy the other day. The Gap had put out their new spring collection and I challenge YOU to try and gaze at the yellows and pinks and other lovely light, cheery colours that remind you of summer, in nice, soft fabrics and try - just try - NOT to walk out of that store having purchased under $250 worth of clothing.

**Looks a little sheepish while trying to justify recent spending binge.**

Of course, now that I have a cute pair of shorts, 4 new t-shirts, a bathing suit cover-up for the beach, a new tank top and a pair of jeans (not for trip... but they were nice, people! How could I resist??), I'm almost all set for sunny Mexico.

Next on my list:

  • New bathing suit (maybe... bikini. Not sure I've recovered from this yet.)
  • Cute dresses for evening wear
  • Another cover-up for the beach

And I can totally justify all this spending. I mean, I'm going to be with a bunch of friends. Which means I MUST look fashionable and chic and cute at all times.

This vacationing stuff. 'Tis hard work, I tell you.

Hubster says "What up?"


  1. You have encouraged me to check out the new Gap collection. Are you on the payroll?
