We're now less than a month away from Tropical Nights Boots in the Sand at the Hard Rock Resort in Riviera Maya, Mexico.

We know life is busy. So, if you haven't booked your trip yet, or are still unsure about whether you want to go or not, we have some things for you to do instead of going to Boots in the Sand from Feb. 23-27.

    Go to Work

    I mean, we're already going to work more than a third of our lives anyway. So, what's another week gonna hurt?

    Drive in Traffic

    I know, for me, there's nothing more fun than going to work, then driving home in traffic. And if you live in Tyler or Longview, then you understand. It's almost like putting your life in your own hands (or really, in the hands of horrible drivers) every day. At Boots in the Sand, you wouldn't even NEED a car.

    Be Cold

    By the end of February it might start warming up around here. But being East Texas, you really never know. It might be 75, but it could also get down to the 20s, snow and THEN imagine how bad the driving would be. In Riviera Maya, it'll be perfect. Because there's a beach and stuff.

    Continue to be Super Mom (or Dad)

    Look, I love kids, but Lord knows we all need a break every now and then. So if you do decide not to go to Boots in the Sand, you'll just have to handle dealing with all that for another week, with no breaks whatsoever.
