40 Days and 40 Nights

Remember that movie? Josh Hartnett, the teenage heartthrob, couldn’t sleep with anyone for 40 days. Whatever happened to him? If you want something similar to that movie, watch “Too Hot To Handle.” I am unfortunately enamored with the tall, 23-year-old Aussie who uses the phrases “naughty possums” and “little quesadillas” to refer to people.

Cabo San Lucas & Todo Santos, Baja California Sur

One of my highly anticipated trips this year was to Cabo San Lucas for my work wife’s destination wedding. I’m more of a mountain person so an all-inclusive beach resort was new to me and I didn’t hate it.
