Where the Frack is Mama?!

Hey Dolls, needless to say Mama appears to have fallen off the face of the earth but no, I'm still here! 

It's been a busy-as-heck summer and we just returned from our annual summer holiday at our home in Greece. I'm back and ready for action (read: school starting ASAP) and I should probably get to down to biznass and play some serious blog catch-up. 

Greece was great this year, sure there's a financial crisis happening but that's no reason not to enjoy some  fun in the Mediterranean sun... 
Kid #1 and #2  behaved amazingly on the flight over (thank you Nintendo DS) and for the first year ever I didn't have to haul strollers, car-seats or any other small-child-related-items. Praise the Baby Jesus! 

Here's some pics, there are so many to show I guess I'll have to start with these...

{greek islands, well worth the trip and the tan-lines...}

{kid #1 chillin' like a villain...}

{Strawberry Daiquiri's with the girls}

{they were so lost...narrow streets of Mykonos}


{white pants and cocktails...srsly summer!}


{always time for another fruity drink...}

{little Venice}

Facts: 
-Europe is crazy expensive
- Greek summers are smoking hot 
-Ice cream should be considered a food group on its own
-I need a yacht in my next life (or this one...)
-I love my bed here at home in Canada

 Apologies for the long hiatus but tell me how has your summer been? 

Any family vay-cays or road trips? Are your kids driving you batty-shiz crazy like mine are?

I miss Greece! I remember those crazy narrow streets in Mykonos!

You look hot mama! What a fabulous vacation and beautiful spot.

It's my dream vacation to take my hubby and kids who have never been there. Maybe someday. Sigh. :-)

Seriously, I would never leave that place! Jealous of your tan..

You're Lucky I Don't Have a Gun... said...

OMG, I have so much to say!!

1. You look GORGEOUS! You should wear your hair back more often- it really shows off your face!

2. You look super young and tan.

3. LOVE the shot of the green ocean.

4. I've been to Mykonos!!! I stayed at Kalafatis beach and saw the windmills, the narrow streets in the village, and Little Venice too!! I remember riding a rickity old bus into town- we were on a cliffside driving next to mountain goats! It really is beautiful out there.
