when in mexico

do what the Mexicans do. For four gringas on a Saturday night that included: being serenaded by two cute boys, two guitars, and a lovely song or three. Eating out in the fresh night air. Walking around the market, purchasing street vendor food, and having a blast. Weekends in Mexico aren't so bad. :)

every 2 weeks

Liza and I make the long 30 min walking trek down to Chedraui. That's our grocery store. I beg for sugar cereal, and she whines for cleaning chemicals. After we both give up and give in, we check out and start walking home. One item we never fail to purchase, are garbage bags. If we ever forget them we will be doomed. Every grocery run between 2 norte and Reforma, our bags rip. Cans go rolling, boxes go sprawling, and we break into uncontrolble fits of laughter.This is when we find the garbage bags, bag everything up, and keep on going. It is the most comical endeavor. We are always crying with laughter by the time we make it home. The Mexican get a really good show every 2 weeks.

i woke up this morning

to a red robbin in my courtyard. He was just eating a seed. Im glad he let me take a picture of him. He looked at me. I looked at him. He wished me good morning, and then He flew away.

if i were a girl

in Mexico, and totally boy deprived... I would go to a park with one of my girl friends and we would just sit there and stare down boys for hours. literally. Then... every once in a while, eight boys would approach and ask us if they could take a picture with us. If they weren't quite men that would be ok too, cause it still would have been worth being on the prowl. If only...


I picked an orange off a tree at school. Once it was peeled all my little students wanted a slice. We shared, and it was perfect.

BYU-I will

consider doing another semester up at your school. We had some good times in the past. Even though I wasnt crazy about you, I am willing to give it another try. You are a little cheesy at times, but that is something we can work on. I will promise to spend more time on your campus if you promise to provide more interesting people to converse with. I really hope that we can start again on the right foot this time, and that you can see that I willing to work this out. It´s not you, it's me. Promise. I needed to take a break, and now that I am feeling refreshed, I can see the posibilities. Thanks for always being there for me. xoxo
