Cancun 2014

Thanks to Cameron's hard work at Vivint this past summer, we were able to enjoy a weekend getaway in Cancun recently. Let's just say we were just getting warmed up from the Utah chill by the time we had to head home. We could've stayed forever. We loved the clear warm ocean where the floury sand below is seen from the surface. The beach volleyball kept Cameron entertained for hours upon hours, as well as myself. His happy and energetic spirit was plenty of fun to watch on the sand court.

The evenings filled with fancy dinners were definitely a food lovers favorite, like ourselves. Our last night, we may have made a late reservation and didn't get into the restaurant we were hoping. So we enjoyed a first course (full appetizer and meal) at the Beach House restaurant, just to warm up and expand our tummies for the following dinner reservation at 10pm we were able to squeeze ourselves into. We indulged in more than enough Pina Coladas and a heavenly Mediterranean meal, then rolled ourselves back up to bed.

Something we would recommend for your next vacation to Cancun, would be the Tulum Ruins and Xel-Ha Park! Both had the most incredible views and beautiful scenery. We had such a good time and wished it wouldn't end. We feel so blessed to have jobs that allow us to have such fun experiences. Lots of thanks to Vivint and the leadership for the fun trip! Also, thanks to all the fun company. We loved getting to know some of our fellow Vivinteers better.

Adios Amigos,

Oh, To Love Winter

To love winter is a difficult thing to do sometimes. After some light online reading I have put together a few (10) reasons to help me embrace these next few months of chill here in Utah with a better attitude and more winter lovin'.

1. More reasons to cuddle
Obviously this is my first thought because I'll take any excuse to cozy up to my honey under a fuzzy blanket.

2. Beards
Not many things can bring a grin to your face like walking past a man with a lot of facial hair.

3. Witness more sunrises
The sun rises about 7 am on a winter morning giving more of us snoozers an opportunity to see such beauty.

4. Hot Chocolate
Not just hot chocolate, but hot chocolate with lots of mix-ins and plenty of vanilla steamers. Don't forget Starbucks' Caramel Apple Spice, my mouth is watering typing this.

5. Carbs help you lose weight
Wouldn't that be nice? But they do put that nice warm layer of fat on you to help you enjoy the season.

6. Snow capped mountains
They make for the most beautiful drives and fun ski days and more excuses to drink hot chocolate.

7. Motivation
Nothing makes you feel better than a fresh start with new goals and a good reason to forget your failures from last year.

8. Seat warmers
Can't live without 'em.

9. More sports than you can ever image
Which means more social media and reading time than I could ever image.

10. Spring wouldn't be so sweet
Would the sweet smells of spring or the warmth of summer sound so good if it weren't for the winter opener?

Stay cozy my friends...
