Back in the USA

After being back for almost a week, I'm finally getting a chance to post on here! A 10 day vacation requires at least a week of housework catch up (i.e. loads and loads and loads of laundry!) and we've also had a pretty busy week around here anyways. We had a wonderful time in Mexico! The hotel was AMAZING (we stayed at the Hilton- which I would HIGHLY recommend), the weather was gorgeous, and most importantly my sister was the most beautiful bride EVER. We did a lot of swimming/chillin by the pool, eating delicious Mexican food, and well... just relaxing. Here are a few pics:

{The most wonderful pictures are the ones from the wedding, but Ashley wants us to wait to post those pics until after their Nashville reception on June 6.}

Carterman did great on the entire trip, but it obviously helped that he had 20 adoring fans giving him ridiculous amounts of attention 24/7! We had 4 plane rides total (2 down to Mexico and 2 back to TN) and supposedly every flight was sold out, but on 3 of the planes the person who was supposed to sit in the seat next to us didn't show up! How amazing is that?! Total, 100% God thing. Having the extra seat for Carter made the flights much more bearable. In spite of all my germ prevention techniques, the little man did get sick on the night of the rehearsal dinner. By the time we got back to the hotel and took his temperature he was running about 102.7, which is by far the highest fever he's ever had. Turns out it must have been a virus he picked up, but thankfully it was pretty short lived and he was back to himself within a few days. Thank the Lord!

I'll wrap this up, but here's one short funny story from the trip...
I brought in this picture as an example of how I wanted my hair for the wedding:

The lady doing my hair (who didn't speak much English) looked at the picture, then back at me, then back at the picture and finally said, "This You??" I laughed and said, "No, it's not me. It's Carrie Underwood, definitely not me." She then took the picture to the lady doing my mom's hair and said "This her??" I assured them again that it wasn't me in the picture. Ha! Totally made my day though :)
I'll be back soon with a few recipes I've made this week... adios!
