blessing from the sky

Yesterday was great day, as my cousin Maria Jose finally had her baby Julian, who is soon to be (in a few months) my Godson as well!!! 

Julian was born at 9am (local Grand Cayman time), he weighted 6.6lbs and was about 20 inches long...I got the news from my Mom when I was on my way to the gym.

Here's the very first picture I got from my cousins, notice that he is wearing the little pajama outfit I got him!!!! Isn't he adorable? Can't wait to meet him <3

In another note. Today's photo challenge is kind of stupid (from my point of view) because it calls for a picture of- The Moon tonight.

So, if I do manage to get such picture of the moon, which by the way is not "waning crescent" phase tonight... I would miss most of the day to post.

Instead of waiting and posting such a picture, I decided to apply to my own rules and do my own thing, specially cause it's my own blog and I can do whatever I want, LOL!

Isn't this a cool shot? I found it on the internet but I am unable to give proper credit as it didn't say who took it...

Tonight we have a "team building" activity from work and we are going bowling! I am looking forward to it because it's been a while since the last time I went. Will try to take some picture and share later.

Have a wonderful Saturday y'all!!!

what's in your closet?

It is finally Friday and I am excited because I am going to have a 3 day weekend. The manager at work needs to travel next weekend so I will working next Saturday instead. It's 3 rest days this weekend and 1 next... Over all it's an o.k. deal!

On Sunday I have a friend and her 7 years old son coming over to Grand Cayman from Cayman Brac, I am excited to see them and I think we are going to have brunch together that day. I have bought Aidan (her son) a LEGO Star Wars that he wants and I can't wait to see his little face light up when I give it to him.

Today I am only working from noon until five so I am heading out to the gym, then coming back home, shower and head into work. At night we have the farewell dinner for a diving event my husband's been participating on, that should be fun.

In other news, today is day 82 of my photo challenge and it calls for a picture of- the most embarrassing thing in your closet.

Well, just like I posted the other day about not having monster of anything else under my bed, same goes for today's photo challenge, I don't believe I currently have anything embarrassing in my closet other than a BIG mess, and even that I kind of arranged a little, just a few days ago.

So for me this time, it's definitely no "skeletons in the closet" today!!!

Now, as I am sitting here thinking about what could I possible own or at least used to own that would be embarrassing, I can't really come up with anything.

On the other hand I am trying to imagine Lady Gaga's closet, and can't help but wonder what would she consider embarrassing in her closet when she wear things like these, right?

She is definitely nuts and not a very good role model for many your girls out there...

Any who... I am off to sweat, have a wonderful Friday and an even better weekend!!!

the joy of baking

Baking is something I've always enjoyed, maybe I don't do it as often as I wanted but since I was a little girl I always loved to bake, specially with my Mom.

Today's photo challenge Day 81- Something that you baked.

So from this...

To this...

I baked this cake a few months ago, just after my husband finished working for the government, we had my brother and SIL over and she named it his "freedom cake".

The recipe is from my great grandaunt and it's kind of secret as my Mom won't let me share it... I do have to say is a very, very tasty cake... So, if you come visit me, I'll make sure to bake one for you!!!

Have a wonderful day!!!

E.T. phone home...

With only twenty days left on my photo challenge, I am starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel, LOL!

It's amazing how fast 100 days go by, but if I was to take a 100 day vacation, I am sure those days would go by much, much faster!

Today's photo challenge day 80 is to post- Your favorite childhood movie.

Although there are a few movies that might fall into this category, I believe the one that deserves my number one spot is not other than;

This movie is simply unique and wonderful; full of mystery, adventure and childhood emotions.

When I first watched this movie I was only 5 years old, and although at the time it scared me a little, it also opened my eyes to a wonderful world that even now as an adult I would like to believe in.

This movie made me laugh and made me cry; the connection and friendship that Elliot (specially) and Gertie develop with E.T. is stronger that most people can ever develop with an actual human being, and that is very special!!!

If I was to ever be visited or encounter an extra terrestrial, I sure would like it to be just like E.T.

Now after writing this post I feel like watching the movie again, I might do that this weekend!!!

So, how about you? Do you have any favorite childhood movies that bring back nice memories?

Have an extra terrestrial day!!!

been there, done that...

Photo Challenge Day 79 - A ticket from somewhere you've been.

During my life I've had the opportunity to visit the Bob Marley Museum in Kingston, Jamaica, twice. 

The last time I was there was in June last year. For today's photo challenge here's a picture of the actual ticket they give you at the entrance.

On another note, I am very sadden about the currently situation so many people in Joplin, MO are living right now. The devastation left by the latest Tornado is terrible and I can't even try to imagine what people are going through; losing family or friends, their possessions and quite possible their faith in life and God... 

May they find strength in this difficult time and God gives them hope and will to continue in this journey of life.

To all those in Joplin and any other ares affected by this terrible tragedy,

Have a blessed day!!!

i wear my sunglasses at night...

Well, today's post title is not quite true... Although today's photo challenge day 78 is about- A picture of your sunglasses.

In past years I have to admit that I always used to wear cheapo imitation kind sunglasses, you know the kind that say "polarized" but c'mon it should be more like polar-ice!!! The reason I used to wear "cheapo" ones is because I was always very sloppy on taking care of them and in a matter of a few weeks I would scratch them or worse...

Last year at the store where I work, started carrying a whole line of Maui Jim sunglasses and although I hear about them in the past and most people that own a pair swear by them, I never really own a pair, until last December. I made a commitment to take good care of them as they definitely don't fall into the cheapo category, but that are sooo worth every penny!

Now I am the proud owner of an Alana model and I have to say they are simple fabulous and I love them with both my two eyes, lol!

You definitely don't know polarize until you own a pair of these puppies, they are excellent quality and there are tons of style for every taste and need... If you are in the market for a new pair of "dark shades", you might just want to give them a try, I am sure you won't be dissapointed.

Do you have any special pair of sunglasses that you love? Or maybe you don't use any at all, well you don't know what you are missing, but you will if you get some Maui Jim's!!!

So yes, I do love my sunglasses, but not enough to wear them at night!

Have a great Monday and rest of the week : )

SunDay 77

Photo Challenge Day 77- The last thing that you bought.

Since I joined a gym about 2 weeks ago, I have been doing the effort to go at least 3 times a week, so far so good! Reason why the last thing that I bought was a pair of Sport Bras to use while I exercise.

I bought a light blue and a pinkish one (not showing on the picture!). Both are 100% cotton so hopefully this ones won't give a heat rash as the old ones are.

Have a great Sunday!!!
