WFMW: It's 5 o'clock somewhere
Happy Wednesday to you! It's time once again to post another WFMW tip!

Before I post my tip I'd like to let you know of the launching of my new business where I'm selling a few of my items in an effort to raise money for the web design of my online store. I'd appreciate it if you'd stop by and take a look. And there is a giveaway being offered!

Now then, this week I'm coming to you live from Mexico, where the internet access is spotty but the margarita's are refreshing and it's always 5 o'clock somewhere (according to Jimmy Buffet)!  My husband I are here with our 3-year old son and 15-month old foster daughter.  We're having a blast hanging out on the beach, eating fresh seafood, and enjoying those margaritas!

I thought I'd share with you some of our vacation pictures.

View of the ocean from our condo.  We've seen dolphins three of the four mornings we've been here.

Here's another view of the ocean from a look-out point not far from where we're staying.

Boo and Snuggle Bug playing on the beach.

Snuggle Bug enjoying his early breakfast and watching for dolphins.

This is a picture taken by Snuggle Bug (he's 3 years old and likes to play with Mommy's camera).

Vacationing in Mexico (or anywhere for that matter) to recharge our spirits works for me. To find out what works for others, be sure to check out the other links at Shannon's, the creator of Works-For-Me Wednesday!

What a blast and the kids look like they are having so much fun. My daughter said she would be contacting you soon... Maybe she has all ready.

I love these photos! We're going to the beach today, actually. I'm really looking forward to it! :)

It would work for me too! I'll bet you're having a wonderful time.
