Black Swan

I saw Black Swan with my girlfriends yesterday. I'm usually a romantic-comedy, happy-happy movie type of girl, but I went along to see this dark thriller because of the rave reviews. I've been wanting to see a ballet (like The Nutcracker) for the last few years. After seeing this movie, I really want to see one now! The dancing and costumes were amazing. I never knew Natalie Portman was a dancer. She was so graceful and natural-looking as she danced. But the movie had me on edge the whole 2 hours. I left with sweaty palms and knots in my stomach. :( Intense is an understatement.

A Day at the Beach...Instagram Style!

After hanging out at the hotel pool, we decided to check out their Ocean Club. Upon arriving at the entrance, you could see straight through to the ocean. With the sun beaming down in the late afternoon, the ocean looked beautiful! I had been reading my Jodi Picoult book and was getting kind of restless. So I decided to play around with the Instagram app on my iPhone. I love silhouette pictures. They're so fun!

Back to Reality

I'm missing the sun, beautiful scenery and good food. Unfortunately for us, it was winter in Puerto Vallarta. I still didn't expect it to be so chilly though. :( It didn't get warm until maybe 10:00-11:00 in the morning. And it started to get chilly again as the sun set around 4:00pm. Not that I like to tan much (don't want wrinkles!) but I was hoping to get a little bit of color. I barely succeeded. Oh well...good for my skin!

This was taken on my iPhone with the Instagram app. I'm really liking this app! It turns ordinary pictures into extraordinary pictures! Hehe. (Ok, maybe not extraordinary.) Anyway, you just have to snap a photo & choose a filter to transform the look and feel of the shot. Good thing is, it's free! I'll be posting more pictures from my trip soon!

Adios, Amigos!

I'm signing off for the weekend! By tomorrow afternoon, I will (hopefully) be out by the pool, soaking in some rays. Have a great long weekend!

Goodbye, Snow! Hello, Sandy Beaches!

I finally started packing for our annual winter trip away from the cold, blustery snow. The husband & I are going to sunny Puerto Vallarta, Mexico this upcoming weekend. We're going with 4 other couples for a long weekend of sunbathing, whale watching, and relaxing. I'm excited to be leaving the snow behind (it's been snowing ALL day today) and to traipsing in the sand.

I'd like to pack one of each of these please!
