Vacation Alert

So in 7 days, I will be going on a once in a lifetime kind of a vacation. My husband and I are going to Los Cabos San Lucas to celebrate our anniversary.

After spending all these years together, I think we both deserve a medal. I know he deserves one for sure.

I am a crazy person when it comes to vacations. I make lists. And lists. And spreadsheets. Yes I know I am a nut case.

There is one for my clothes and the accessories. What will I wear each day (usually more than one outfit a day) and what accessories I will wear with each outfit.

There is one for the agenda. What we will do each day and where we will eat each meal. Once we get there, we can change our minds. But I like having the structure. And my husband loves the fact that I research everything. He tells me of his specific "musts" ahead of time. "Find out where we can watch the cowboys play on Sunday" "Find some good sports bars" Etc.

The third list is for my special projects and things to do. On top of the list is to take photos for a calendar. This year, I am going to shoot some photos, create a calender and give it to my family as a present. I'll also put it up for sale on Lulu and my blog but I am not really expecting much out of that. I also want to work on top ten things to do in Cabos and some restaurant reviews. So basically I will be taking a ton of photos. And having a great time.

While I am gone, I will use scheduled publishing to post a photo everyday. That may not work though. Since I won't have access to the internet, I won't be able to do anything about it.

Now I am off for some shopping. Need to get some cute bikinis and sun dresses.

Anyone ever been there before? I'd love some tips!

You will love it! The beaches are spectacular and you and hubby will want to make the pilgrimage each early evening to see the incredible sunsets! I was there about this time some 5 or 6 years ago. The only tips I can think of might be these. At this time of year the shallow waters are thick with box jellyfish. They are really venomous and I am sure you will see informational signs advising you to avoid them. You can also google and find out a lot about them. The local pharmacies carry antidotes but they can still leave you sick for days. So don't pet the jellyfish! And the only other thing to worry about are the pickpockets. You may already know this. Open marketplaces are a place to be very careful and at night the bars. That's how I lost my Yashica 35 mm right off the top of the bar while tipping a beer with a friend. Don't leave valuables in your room. Look for a hotel that offers lock boxes where such can be kept secure. Lastly, if you believe any of the above it serves you right for posting the dear sw tale and making me think it was true. (Have a great time, Mr and Ms. Scriber. Happy Anniversary!)

Well isn't that fancy! I hope you'll enjoy yourself... Sounds like you put a lot of *work* into a holiday!

Take it easy won't you when you get out? It is your anniversary! Enjoy yourself, and I'm sure you'll love it!

I hope you have a fabulous time! Lists are great & structured but remember to do some spontaneous stuff..sometimes that turns out to even better than the planned events.

Please take plenty of pictures - can't wait to see them. I will have to live vicariously through your eyes...because I am a corporate travel agent who is afraid to fly. LOL! (My hand to God, I hate to fly..LOL)

Sounds dreamy SW! I hope that you both get everything you want out of your vacation.
Happy Anniversary!
We all look forward to some great pictures!

I've never been personally, but it sounds fabulous. That would be the kind of trip I'd want to take without the kids, which of course won't happen for like another two decades, so...But I hope you have a great time, looking forward to the photos.

Wow, very nice vacation.

I am sorry to say I have absolutely no ideas for vacation clothes. It has been 12 years since my last vacation. Seriously!!!

Onangelwings: Wow. That is a long time. Maybe you can take a staycation? I did that when my kids were younger. All day at the pool! Yeah!
