Not to rub it in for those of you in cold weather and at work on a Monday, but it’s beautiful in Aruba today.

Aruba beach

We had three days of straight rain.  The kind of weather where it was so humid and rainy that my hair never really dried out.  For three days.  To say I had a case of the frizzies would be an enormous understatement.

But it’s been gorgeous today.  Figures that on a Monday it’s been a perfect weather day.

Even though we are on “vacation”, it’s a working vacation and Scott and I aren’t just sitting around gazing at this view…

Aruba beach and ocean

…and drinking pina coladas.

Yes to drinking Pineapple Banana & Coconut Cream Smoothies though.

We’ve still had to handle business and while Scott worked, I took Skylar to the pool for awhile.

I also worked in the kitchen on this beautiful stuff otherwise known as vanilla cream cheese frosting for a special occasion.  Stay tuned.

And we’ve all been working our way through these beautiful things.

Well, to me they’re beautiful and I was happy they thought they were acceptable.

I think anyone would say the flowers here are beautiful.
