Sunny Saturday

Well, last night was 1/2 mission accomplished, and the reason why is only 1/2 is because I did managed to get some sleep but I haven't been able to get rid of my cough 100%. I do have to say that the natural remedy Hyung (my Korean friend) gave me works pretty good, but does not cure the cough 100%.

Something else I tried last night right before going to be was: carrot juice with hot water and honey, that works pretty good for relaxing you and taking the itching off your throat, so that's another natural remedy I recommend for when fighting that annoying cough while trying to get to sleep.

So, it's Saturday and I'm really hoping I get some well deserve rest and manage to get rid of this annoying sickness that's being around me way too long.

This afternoon we are planning to go to the opening of a new nursery and I expect to find some good deals as we need more stuff for our garden, but even if we don't buy anything it makes me excited to go cause I LOVE PLANTS and I love going to nurseries, I will probably take some pictures too, although I have not being using my Nikon lately cause I left my charger in CR last month. My mother put it on the mail about a month ago and I'm still waiting for it....

Anyway, here are some pictures of some flowers I bought last weekend, I think they are so beautiful and simple, they are for full sun and require almost no attention at all... Have a great weekend!

Dis and Dat

Yesterday morning I took my car in for the 2009-2010 inspection and I'm happy because it passed, so far in the 3 yrs that I've owned this car it's always being incredibly reliable, never being to the shop and every single year I take for inspection it goes in without a problem, my car is 1996 Mitsubishi Pajero (right side driver, as we drive on the left in the Cayman Island). This is what I drive now:I know I have a good car and all... but that doesn't I'm not already dreaming of a new one, for a while I was really considering a Honda CRV but lately I have fallen madly in love with the Jeep Liberty. Ooooh, it's such a nice car, bigger than mine and specially with 5 doors instead of 3 like the one I own right now... So, now I'm going to focus my law of attraction in order to change my car in the future for a Liberty... This is what I will be driving soon:

Besides my new car plans, I've been feeling pretty bad lately, I have this horrible cold that started on Sunday evening with a soar throat and then became a bad cold. So far every night I have had fever and lately a terrible cough that doesn't give a chance to get a good night sleep.

Last night I slept on the couch cause it made me feel bad that I was coughing so bad right next to my husband and not even he was able to get any sleep... I was sweating all night and I'm sure I had a fever but never got around to get up and look for the thermometer.

So tonight I'm going to give a try to a natural remedy that a Korean friend of mine recommended me, I have to soak grated radish in honey for an hour and then take 3 tablespoons for that, he swears it's a fantastic remedy, we shall see tonight...

Have a great weekend everybody!!!

October Events

It is October already and even though I don't really have a busy social life at all, for some reason this month is filled with 3 big events.

Event #1: On the weekend of Oct. 18th we are going to my friends Vicki and Jason's wedding in Little Cayman (one of the sister islands). For this one, we are going from Friday afternoon and coming back on Monday morning and going to work straight from the airport.

I'm really looking forward to this event as I'm going to see a lot of my friends that I used to work with, plus just the fact of going away for the weekend is going to feel like a little vacation.

Jay and Vicki are getting married!

So, for this joyful occasion I made up my mind and decided not to buy a new dress and wear one that I already own. It was really my plan to buy a new one but then I found out that I have another 2 events after this one...

Event #2: My boss, his name is Guy Harvey (artist, conservationist, fisherman, marine biologist, etc) is going to be highly honored by being inducted in the IGFA (International Game Fish Association)'s Hall of Fame. For this we are going to a big event dinner at the IGFA building in Miami, FL on Oct. 27th. It should be very fun and also nice because there are only 5 people inducted every year and this year, besides my boss there is a fellow Costarican being inducted, so I am ruling for both of them.

In the case of the dress code for this particular event, according to my boss I should wear a casual cocktail dress. So, yesterday after work I stopped a local store and found a nice, cute, not so dressy dress. It looks like this:

So, what do you guys think??? You like it, I guess like any other dress it looks better once you have it one than like this on a manequin, that's why I'll try to put it one and take a picture for visual purposes.

And finally...

Event #3: It's a fundraiser dinner for the Guy Harvey Ocean Foundation (yes, my boss has his own foundation to preserve the oceans) and for that one, I have no clue what I'm going to wear.

Unfortunately for me a live on an island that the options for clothing as many other items are quite limited. So I guess I will have to look around some more and hopefully I will be able to find something soon.

Wednesday Movie Post

Lately I haven't really watch any movies worth posting about.

Then the other day while watching the special features on one of the many animated movies that we own, I found some pretty cool videos of the songs featured on many of those movies (made by Dreamworks).

So, in today's post instead of writing about an specific movie I decided to share some of these videos.

I'm sure they are not only entertaining but some might even make you wanna dance!!!

Happy Hump Day!

Redefining "Joe Cool"

Last week our dog Sheba walked right by a little side table we have next to the couch and by mistake picked up my husband sunglasses, when we realized she was walking with the glasses on her neck this gave us a wonderful opportunity for a "kodak" moment.

The pictures came out so good that it got me thinking that Snoopy has nothing on how cool she looks, right? LOL

she is not very sure she likes wearing glasses

"o.k, o.k. I might be able to get used to this..."

Oh yeah! that's more like it...

lovin' it!

Full Moon Weekend

On Saturday we went to a Full Moon Party at the Public beach. After the party on our way home we stopped at another part of the beach that was more private so we could night swim, we had my camera so we took some pretty cool shots...

Us in the water

Just goofing around

Then yesterday was our friend Ania's birthday (she is my coworkers wife) so we got invited to the hang out with a bunch of people (including my boss and his wife) at Rum Point which is one of the most beautiful parts of the island. Basically the beach is so shallow that on Sundays most people that own a boat drive there to just hang out, eat, drink and chat on the water... So there were tons of people and even a lot of dogs... We had a great time!

Ania and her dog Trinity

us goofing around!

dogs in kayak and another one one the boat

more boats (it wasn't very busy yet!)...

Unfortunately after a great weekend another work week starts, plus this morning I woke up with a massive throat infection that I need to pay close attention to as this is going to be a pretty busy week and I can't afford to get worst... So I'm already taking more vitamins that normal and hope that it won't get out of control.... Have a great week!
