So Mother's Day...not to sound like the worst mom ever, but it never goes as planned in our house. Usually it's the one weekend my kids decide to go bat sh*t crazy & fight like mad. I host cookouts and am generally exhausted when the day is done. #truth
So almost every mother's day I have proclaimed that the next mother's day I'm spending the day all by myself at a spa or mall.
Oh I'm a hateful Mom, but for real when you spend 24/7 with your kids as a stay at home mama - sometimes you just need to get away! Feel me?
So this year I did. The day after Mother's day I took a #girlsTrip -(note capitalize the T on that or it takes on a new meaning when using Instagram!) I flew out with my coach, mentor, and dear friend for a week in Belize!
It was magical! It was refreshing! It was just what I needed to get reinspired in life - to be a better wife, better mom, better friend, better business woman. We all need balance and sometimes balance comes from the outside - by getting away, unplugging, and re-engaging with life!
In all honesty I wondered what in the heck we would do for a full week to ourselves - how would we entertain ourselves? We with a condo smack dab on the beach in one of the most gorgeous places in the world - there was no time to be bored! We had a stunning view, incredible front porch on the beach, and the nicest resort staff to boot! We laid out, listened to music we can't play around our kids, enjoyed adult beverages, kayaked, paddle boarded, at our fill of chips and salsa & GAUC!!!!
We took a day trip to Belize City - hopped in a van and took off almost to Honduras to tour a mayan ruin (the history nerd in me was geeking out!!!). Then we went zip lining and cave tubing through Jaguar Creek and saw real LEGIT Jaguar foot prints - creepy cool! Our friend was crazy brave and tasted termites - I opted to jump into a cave river off a rock - I'm not one for legs in my mouth but she proclaimed they tasted like carrots! What?! How?!
We took in all the glory that Belize had to offer & Facetimed our babies at night.
It was incredible. I'm incredibly blessed to have a husband that fully supports my business, dreams and aspirations and that says honey - take a week off and I'll handle the house! I came home to a fully cleaned home with all the laundry and dishes done - I have trained him well <3 a="" allows="" amp="" and="" dear="" do="" experience="" fortunate="" friend="" good="" have="" i="" is="" job="" life="" m="" me="" nbsp="" nd="" od="" p="" so="" that="" to="" travel="" with="">
