Some things I learned . . . . while on vacation!!!

My sisters, cousin and I just got back from an amazing trip to Belize, C.A. "Belize" it or not - C.A. does not stand for California but Central America. (I actually knew this before leaving for Belize but was a little shocked at how many people didn't even know what Belize was!) Anyway, it was such a beautiful place and we had a ton of fun. I thought it might be interesting to share a couple of things I "learned" while gone!
  • i am actually capable of drinking not one, or two or even three but FOUR whole cups of coffee in the morning without reheating a single one if I take the time to sit down and enjoy my coffee without being distracted by other things.
  • i can survive without Facebook for a whole week and not even have withdrawals.
  • i'm surprisingly getting much better at the whole flying thing and did just fine on all of our flights to and from Belize as well as the two tiny airplane rides we took while in Belize flying from Ambergris Caye to the mainland and then back again - no nausea and no panic attacks.
  • i didn't miss my cell phone one stinkin' bit while gone and could have went a whole nother week or two without turning it on once i was home!
  • i am not as young as i once was and that fact doesn't bother me in the slightest.
  • i am not now - nor was i ever into the "party scene".
  • i truly enjoy karaoke even though i am not very good at it!
  • i smile too big for pictures.
  • i smile too much for snorkeling.
  • i am getting to old for sleeping on hide-a-beds!
  • i look better with a tan!
  • God has created the most magnificent world and I love being able to see all the things and places that he has made.
  • the Caribbean is indescribable in its beauty!!!
  • i love meeting new people and getting to know more about them and their lives.
  • i don't like being ignored!
  • i could live in Belize if the opportunity ever presented itself!
  • Belizean Red Beans and Rice is SO YUMMY!!!!!
