i heart my pets

Today's photo challenge comes natural to me as it requires to: Post a picture of your pet(s).

Well, if you've read my blog for at least a week, you'll know how much I love my dogs, I really enjoy and cherish their company so I'm constatly posting their picture here.

So here they are, once again (and I'm sure it won't their last time), my lovely dogs; Ditto & Sheba!

Ditto & Sheba: "do we really  have to do this?" Me: STAAAAY!

Ditto: "Stop acting so cute Sheba, otherwise we'll be here forever!"

Ditto: "are we done already? getting bored here..."

Ditto: "o.k. Sheba get closer, I think this might be the last one..."

Are they adorable??? Besides they are such good sports for when it comes for their Momma to take their picture... I love them!

Have a great Saturday!!!

Day 40 - check!

Today's Photo Challenge- A picture of my favorite Disney character.

Well, I don't think I've ever considered that I have a favorite Disney character, but if I was to choose one, I believe the Cheshire Cat from the original Alice in Wonderland movie from 1951 is the one.

Although, I also love the new Tim Burton's version of 2010 and I think Chessur (as the cat is called on the new version) is also pretty cool!

I think this characters has lots of good attributes; first and for most he is a cat, he has cool color stripes, a big huge smile, he has evaporating properties, but also he is kind of crazy and mysterious.

So, there you have it, he is definitely my number 1 in this case!!!

Have a great weekend!

Day 39- A picture of your favorite movie

Today's challenge in a way is kind of hard for me, but not because I don't like movies or because I don't have a favorite one. The problem is, I don't really have just one favorite.

I've never been one of those people that have "absolute favorites" in their life and specially when it comes to movies. I like all sorts of movies; comedy, animations, drama, action and I specially love movies based on real facts...

But, for today's purpose I am going to go with the movie, "Finding Nemo", which is definitely on  my top ten of all times favorite ones.

I like this movie because it's got great animation, the colors are vivid and the reef scenes are very well made. The plot is entertaining all the way, with good enough story for kids but also some adult humor as well.

 My favorite character is Gill, because he is the tanks leader, he's experienced (coming from the ocean), he's dark but also has a tender side as well!

So yeah, I guess that would be my choice for today, and although is not my #1 in the book, it's pretty close to be one my favorites. What's your favorite movie???

On another note; Thanks to all my reader/blogger friends that gave me their opinion about the new banner on my blog. I am going to keep this one for a while and until is time for a change again.

Happy Thursday to all!!!

New Look

Just changed the header image of my blog and I could really use your opinion as I'm not 100% sure I like it...

I guess my doubts are mainly because once I upload the photo to the actual blog, the image looses resolution and it looks sort of out of focus, wadda ya think?

Any constructive criticism is gladly welcomed and accepted, thanks!!!


Oooops, actually I just changed it again and I like it much better, now it's got much better resolution and focus... Comments are more than welcome, thanks!!!


I've been so caught up on the photo challenge lately that I kind of miss blogging. What I don't miss is trying to come up with a good subject or something worth sharing with y'all, as knowing that a photo challenge is taking care of that part, although I do miss sharing some stuff... so I guess today I am going to go beyond the Photo Challenge and share with you a little bit of what I've been doing lately.

As I probably mention it before, we had family here for a couple of days so we were "playing tourists" around the island, did some shopping, visited the Turtle Farm and even the museum (which I've never been to before).

We also had an awesome party at my brother's new house, a very big and posh "mansion" that they are house sitting for a few months until the rich owners come back in about 6 to 8 months... ck out their place.

pretty fancy, uh?

pool party @ my brother's new place!

Now, going back to the Photo Challenge.

It's pretty amazing that I'm already on day # 38 as it feels like it was just yesterday that I decided to take on this long challenge... because I mean, 100 days is pretty long, don't you think? I know for sure that many other activities I've tried in the past haven't even last that much, so it's pretty exciting that I've been so consistent with something... finally!!!

Well, today's challenge is a photo of my favorite time of the day... In my case it means when after a days work and driving about 1/2 hour to 45 minutes in island traffic, I pull into our road and I see our dogs (and something my husband) waiting for me in the front deck... Aaaahhhh, that means I'm home, where my heart is, my castle, my refuge, my own private Idaho!!!

I love that time of day, when I get greeted with love and happiness... how about you? What's your favorite time of the day???? Have a wonderful Wednesday!!!

Delicious Sunday

Today the photo challenge is about posting a picture of my favorite place to eat.

Well, I could post a picture of a couple of restaurant where I like to eat, but if it comes to my favorite place I am going to go with my #1 place and food, which is here...

I love everything about my Mom's cooking and eating there is always delicious, enjoyable and with the best of company. I am sure plenty can relate to this feeling, right?

If you are ever in Costa Rica, make sure to contact me so you can go visit "La Cocina de Lorena" (see the sign on the picture above? that was made by my husband and me for my Mom's kitchen)... I am already dreaming of my next time there and looking forward to some "comfort food"....Buen provecho!

Have a delicious Sunday :)
