For years, it had been my dream to marry a hotel manager. It sounded exotic and very glamorous to me. Sure enough, some years ago I married a hotel manager.

So has my life been all glamorous? Hum… Well… Packing boxes for your next move, going house hunting, finally unpack those boxes again – not very glamorous. But moving to various countries at least is exotic. And I haven’t regretted a single moment yet!

    • Oh my! I feel so honoured! Thank you very, very much!!! πŸ™‚ Now it is my turn to nominate someone, right? Seems like I’ve got some thinking (and reading) to do!

  1. I found your blog through expatlingo’s post. So glad she led me to you! I’m American and am married to a Mexican-American. Even thought we lived in the US when we were first married, I went through a culture shock just by marrying into his family! I was very reluctant to hand my firstborn child over to his grandma’s care in fear that my daughter would be returned to me with her belly button tied down (to prevent an “outie”) or that she would rub eggs all over my baby (to rid her of the evil eye). These are the things she did with other babies in the family. I think she left my baby alone since I’m a gringo πŸ™‚

    • Oh, thank you so much, Melissa! I just read your post about the knife, the spatula and the window rim – great, now I have to fix my makeup again, since I was laughing so hard (my dog even got worried about me)!
      I am glad things have turned out well for you so far re belly buttons and strangers…! Thank you for following my blog, I will make sure I follow yours, too. We all deserve a good laugh in this expat chaos (that we all seem to enjoy)!

  2. Hello,

    I’m writing from the Dr. Oz Show – I saw your blog and I wanted to see if you’d be possibly interested in participating in an upcoming segment! Do you have any funny healthy related travel stories you’d like to share?

  3. I’ve been nominated for the Very Inspiring Blogger Award and I am now sharing the love… I think your blog is inspiring, well written and thoroughly worth reading, so I have nominated you for the award too: consider yourself a Very Inspiring Blogger! If you would like to accept the award, click on the following link to read the rules and the post in which you are listed: http://housewifedownunder.wordpress.com/2012/11/28/the-very-inspiring-blogger-award/ Congratulations!

    • Thank you so much, Constance! What an honour!
      Of course, it is with great pleasure that I accept, but I am afraid, it will take me a while to write the required post and nominate fellow bloggers – my parents are here for a visit, and they leave me little time to blog…!
      Again, thank you so much and saludos to the Middle East!

  4. I’ve studied Spanish twice in Mexico (Puebla and Guanajuato). I have contemplated retirement south of the border, so I really enjoy reading your posts. Thank you.

    • Hi Rosemarie, and thanks for following my blog!
      Please bare in mind that we live at the Mayan Riviera where life is very Caribbean. Friends and colleagues from other parts of Mexico keep telling us how different(and how much easier) life in other parts of the country is.
      Anyhow, I hope you enjoy my little blog, and good luck with the decision making!

  5. Hi Kristin! I trust all is well. I do enjoy your blog so much and as such I have nominated you for The Super Sweet Blogging Award. I hope you will accept when you have the time! It took me a while to get to mine as I had so much to catch up with when I got back from my trip! I see that you have had your family with you (previous comment) and I’m sure you have had a wonderful time. I remember thoses days so well!
    The link for the award is: http://sherrimatthewsblog.wordpress.com/2013/05/13/sweet-dreams-are-made-of-these/
    Congratulations and I look forward to reading more of your wonderfully entertaining posts soon πŸ™‚

    • Wow, thank you so much, Sherri! I have to admit I am far behind with my blogging stuff… Not only because my parents spent some time with us but also and mostly because I was busy giving birth to a baby boy! But slowly, I am finding my routine and will look into this award thing very soon!
      Again, thanks a million!

  6. Hi Kristin!Thanks for following my blog! You sure have an interesting one right here. You just don’t know how many times I’ve dreamed about partying and getting drunk in Mexico so I’m pretty sure I will enjoy your blog. Looking forward to the weekend so I can go through more of your stuff ❀

    • Thank you! Ha, partying and getting drunk in Mexico is quite an achievable goal – will you do that before or after sunbathing naked in Bali? Haha, I really enjoy your blog and intend to browse some more whenever those daily Mexican mishaps let me…
      Thanks for following!

    • Wow, Sherri, 7 in 1? That’s most efficient! πŸ™‚ well, thank you so, so much! Right now I am running around like a headless chicken preparing a trip home to see my family, but I’ll get to pass the awards on very soon, I hope. Grandparents time = babysitter time! πŸ˜€ Lots of Love!

      • I know, can you believe it! It’s taken me ages to get to these award’s posts, three of them, so I’m knackered now, lol, but don’t worry, you get to them whenever, I know you are so busy and how lovely that you are going to be seeing your family! Ha, yes, nothing like wonderful grandparents to help with the babysitting, and I’m sure they are chomping at the bit!
        Have a great time Kristin and happy, safe travels πŸ™‚
