My equipment bags are still packed from my fabulous trip to Viet-Nam and now I’m taking them all with me again to Zihuatanejo + Ixtapa , Mexico!! My kind and generous blog friend, Jaden of Steamy Kitchen, is headed to Ixtapa, Mexico for a press food and wine event and I get to tag along!! I will be her videographer and food partner in crime, so it’ll just be us two gals living it up on the beautiful, sandy, margarita filled beaches of a Mexico resort! We’ll be eating, drinking, videotaping, photographing and cooking for 6 days, all free of Kids, Dogs and our Men.
I’m twittering all our adventures here for you to follow. So you can join me and my adventures with Jaden for every bite, sip and stagger along the way! – Diane
