1 Year, Mexico etc. etc.

Yesterday was our 1 year wedding anniversary!
It's been one heck of a year that's for sure!
We didn't get eachother gifts or go out for a fancy dinner.
Instead we bought an All Inclusive 7-day trip to Peurto Vallarta, Mexico!!!!!!


This will be my very first trip outside of Canada!
Needless to say I am SO stoked for this trip! It is going to be so fun and I get to share it with my two most favourite people!
We are staying at the Holiday Inn in Peurto Vallarta, they have a gorgeous pool with a swim up bar. Beautiful ocean views from the rooms.

Can't wait!

We leave in a month and I've already started prepping, figuring out what we need to make things safe and happy for all of us.
We bought an Ergo Baby Carrier which we got for a steal at the consignment store. The carrier was absolutely brand new, never washed, never used. Perfect condition. And I love it!! It will be so nice for walking around Mexico. Yay for hands free!
I am also on the hunt for some safe (according to the EWG) sun block for Sweet Thing.

Unfortunately we will not be using cloth diapers while we are there, I still haven't perfected my wash routine and I don't want to deal with stinkies in the hot Mexico sun. I would however like to use maybe a hybrid system with disposable inserts. I still need to research it to find whether I could buy the inserts there, what are the chances of that? If you have any suggestions I would love to hear them!
