The Guadalajara Tattoo Expo is finally over. There are no words to describe how exhausted we are. Back to back expos... and everyone and their mother came down to Guadalajara to be entertained. My parents flew in to help us out with the kids, my sister and my cuñado came down for wedding info, tattoo expo, and to get tattooed, other cuñado came to get wasted and tattoo at the expo, and a gang of fellow coworkers... all down to party it up at our first anniversary party. Wow. Throw in all that with teaching a packed seminar, tattooing all weekend, and throwing a bad ass first anniversary party... and well...we're just damn exhausted. Here are some random photos of this weekend and all the crazy's in between!

- I've been living in Mexico now for about a two years with my hubby and 2 kids. Not exactly by choice, but we're here nonetheless. Luckily, I live with quite a few of the accomodations that i was used to in the states. In spite of those convienences, we also have a water tank with asbestos, outdated electricity, massive amounts of dust, caterpillars that burn your skin, and thousands of windshield washers on every street corner. My kiddos and I are learning to speak spanish and adjust to life away from our family and friends in the States.
