I Miss Mexico - Giveaway

I miss Mexico. I miss the slower paced life we had there. I miss the tacos, tortas and limonadas. I miss the music, the heat and the sun. I miss hearing Spanish everywhere. I miss having to speak Spanish. I miss walking all over town. I miss staying up late and getting up whenever we wanted. I miss doing nothing and everything.... and it not mattering!

So, with grey sky looming around me and rain coming down and a fire crackling in the fireplace... I think of Mexico. Yes, it rained there. But it was warm rain. And it was in Mexico and as my children say, "Everything is better in Mexico."

Here's the prize: Orlando organic vanilla, Tajin spice to put on fruit, veggies, you name it, a cute little sombrero and three of my prized tequila chocolates. I'm hoarding them so you have no idea how generous I am being here, people.

I don't have a computer. My laptop has crashed. Our mainframe has crashed. My husband doesn't like sharing his laptop because, "I'm gunna ruin it goin' to all those blogs and shoppin' sites." (Do you like the fancy photo taken with my phone since I can't download the gazillion photos that are on my camera....grrrrr)
So, because I miss Mexico and I can't blog til who knows when.... a giveaway. One entry per person, please. Though if my commenting history is any indicator..... nevermind. ;) I'll draw the winner as soon as I have a computer. Maybe tomorrow maybe Wednesday? For sure by Friday.

Question - Have you started your Christmas shopping yet? I hope so, cause I am almost done!!!!


  1. Hola!

    I am here para los chocolates! Mi Espanol is muy muy rusty.

  2. Yo quiero los chocolates... mmm...muy bueno... Rechelle has NOTHIN on me!

    Nice job Joy! You got Rechelle!
    I am IMPRESSED! woo hoo. I want the chocolates..... and I am your sister in law...does that give me two entries? Or does that disqualify me?

  3. Yay! A giveaway! Count me in!

    Yes, I have started my shopping, and am doing well. My goal is to be done by the end of November. We've decided to really simplify this year, and it feels great!

  4. YEP! I sure have started my Christmas shopping... although I'm not nearly as close to "done" as you are, I've started and today I set out my financial plan of how I will be able to afford "Christmas without credit" this year (for the 5th year in a row!!!).


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment on my blog! I may not reply to each one but know that I read each and every comment.

May God Bless You!
