33 days

Until my dear hubby and I escape cold and miserable Calgary for our first ever tropical vacation together!

We have chosen to spend 8 nights and 9 days at the beautiful Secrets Capri Riviera just north of Playa del Carmen in the Riviera Maya.

To say that I am excited would be an understatement. One of the reasons we picked this resort is the "Unlimited Luxury" all inclusive plans they offer. No wrist bands, premium drinks, beach front wait service, and land sports such as tennis and golf are included. There's 6 restaurants and 5 bars, no reservations required and the resort it's self is on the small side of medium. Only 290 rooms!

I have been to Playa del Carmen once before, for work. It was....exhausting. I went with the first family I nannied with and it was a very long 8 days of not much sleep, over heating and just generally not a lot of fun, even if I was with one of the coolest 2 year olds I know. So needless to say, I am looking forward to an adult trip at an adults only resort where we can come and go as we please, eat delicious food we didn't have to drink and do all the exploring or lazing around we want!

P.S. I just found out that there is something called Tequila Bingo there...oh dear, we may just have to play a game or two!

Wow Jessy I love your blog it is very impressive! Your sewing projects are amazing! I hope you enjoy the Mayan Uncle Steve and I were there a few years ago and had a fabulous time, enjoy the sun, sand and free drinks LOL!!! Your blog has definitely insprired me to clean out my sewing room and dust off my machine and has gotten my creative juices flowing again. I totally get how passionate people become about sewing & quilting! There's nothing like the thrill of finding the perfect fabric and creating something truly unique. Buying fabric is like pure adrenaline for the sewing junkie in us LOL!!! I look forward to seeing the family quilt and following your blog! Who knows maybe I'll start blogging!
Much love and happy sewing
