Room Service Breakfast at Secrets Silversands

The night before leaving I was partying in the lobby bar Rendevouz with some friend! What FUN! Rendevouz is ALIVE all the time but at night it really shines! Great place for before or after dinner drinks… and remember too also to go out side to the Veranda Bar! Live Music and SUCH FUN!

FUN in the Lobby with Friends

Leopardo was very sad he had to leave Secrets Silversands…but when I told him we would be back he was happy! Right now he is very happy because he knows he will be home to see all of his many friends and meet new onces too!

He is looking forward to meeting ZUKO! And saying hello to both Mauricio and Salvador…Leopardo and I both LOVE Secrets Silversands and all the SWEET SECRETS that are there waiting to be revealed!

Let the Packing BEGIN!…

1 Comment

Packing for trips is a multi day event that involves several suitcase and lots of LOVE!

First there is the purchasing of the BERGER COOKIES! Its a tradition for Leopardo Laptop and I just love to take Berger Cookies to our “familia” whenever we travel!

Yesterday I went to the Royal Farms Store to pick up 40 boxes of Berger Cookies….each box weighs about a pound! And 40 boxes of the Berger Cookie Snack Pack each holding 2 Berger Cookies…We like to give them to the bellboys along with a tip because hauling our Leopard Luggage is no easy task…

Its a tradition that started way back when and has grown over the years… For those of you not from Baltimore and not familiar with Berger Cookies, they are a local delicacy that has been a family favorite for a very LONG TIME! You can read more about them here:

http://www.bergercookies.com/history.htm

Then there is packing the Bergers into Zip Lock Bags…because they are going to have to be split between 3 checked bags and 1 carry on bag to make their trip! Its a PROCESS! LOL! Well I just finished that process they are all packed in their Zip Lock bags and tomorrow they will find their home in the Leopard Suitcase…Leopardos are happy suitcases knowing they are going to be fed!

Leopard Luggage

Leopard Luggage awaiting their final packing of BERGERS!

The next largest packing process is the “Toiletry Bag”…LOL! Lotions, potions and everything in between! LOL, this doesn’t allow much room for clothes…But its all about the cookies, everything else manages to get squeezed in just under the 50 lb limit for each bag! Hey…a girls gotta do what a girls gotta do…to get where a girl wants to GO!

Tic Tic Tic…Leopardo and I can’t wait til Saturday when we take off!

September 10th and 11th find both Leopardo and myself in our first Moment of NOW!

We are over the top excited to be visiting NOW JADE! Since we have not been there its going to be a NEW MOMENT not only a NOW Moment!

We have been spending a lot of time over on their Face Book Fan Pages checking out Pictures and Reviews and comment of the guests that have been posting…some while they are there doing “live from”….what fun it its!


http://www.facebook.com/home.php#!/pages/Now-Jade-Riviera-Cancun/119443228078522?ref=ts

We love logging in each and every day and seeing the chatter about NOW JADE and whats going on at the resort. We love the way everyone comes on and shares….questions get answers here…from guests who have been and others who have been following the page! What really rocks our world is that Diana Manrique from the resort comes on and post. I hope to get to meet Diana while there to thank her personally for all that she and the team there are doing to make such special NOW Moments for so many!

Here is where you can check out a TON of great pics of the resort!

http://www.facebook.com/home.php#!/pages/Now-Jade-Riviera-Cancun/119443228078522?v=photos&ref=ts

How great is Facebook and the Fanpages for folks to share and Kudos to all that have! My Dear Friend Carole went down in May and came back an shared her pics and comes on quite often along with others within the “Now Jade” community and shares her NOW Moments with all of us! Rene comes to mind too as a frequent poster who has not been yet but has gathered a lot of great info and is excited to go in October, Allison who was just there and did a blog with pics sharing her vacation! Leopardo and I really enjoyed that because that is what we do whenever we travel!

I think that Diana and the NOW Team even though we have not met officially in person yet…are doing an AMazing Job! I want to give them Kudos and thanks for all the love and dedication for spreading the moment of NOW to not only the guests who visit the resort but to those of us on Facebook who are researching and building our anticipation to our very own Moments of NOW!

Another GREAT resource for all needing a moment of NOW before arrival is to explore their webpage:

http://www.nowresorts.com/jade/

Leopardo and I have been loving the interactive MAP over on their webpage!

http://www.nowresorts.com/jade/map.html

You can scroll over the map and pics of each of the white dots will tell you and some have pics of what things are and where they are located! LOVE that feature!

Well our Days are ticking away…and before we know it Leopardo and I will truly be in our very OWN MOMENT OF NOW!

We hope that you will come with us on our adventure and follow us on Facebook! We will be posting LIVE FROM sharing our Moment of NOW with all of you!

From my patio I could see the Beach, The Pool and the Gazebo…they were setting up for Mexican Night that afternoon and it was such fun to watch the preparation for the nights festivities that were just a few hours away!

They were preparing Paella by the pool and I decided to go over and explore a bit and enjoy the music and the food….both were GREAT!

Of Course I visited the Spa at Secrets Capri and it too is beautiful, restful and Zenlike! This is the Spa Entrance…Just walking in puts you in the SPA MODE!
