new Friday, new Husband

My husband left early this morning, but in the afternoon my new husband arrives.

Yeap, I've been married to and American boy resident of the Cayman Island for the past 391 days, but this evening my new (and improved) British Territory naturalized husband will be at home waiting for me.

Lucky me, it's not every wife that has the opportunity to be married to the same man but with two different nationalities, LOL!

For those who don't understand, my husband was given the Cayman Island residency more than a year ago as he's been living on this islands for more than 13 years, now the next step is to be naturalized as a British Territory citizen, so as of today he will start the process for his British Passport.

I am so happy and excited for him, he loves these islands and has given the community so much that is the best to feel appreciated, hopefully in a few more years, he will receive his full Cayman Islands status and then he will officially be one of them!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Change is (most of the time) always good, isn't it? I believe everything in life has to evolve at some point, if it doesn't grow, change, or at least moves, it simply gets stuck...

When I was a little girl I loved to be able to change the layout of my bedroom, I will change my bed direction every couple of months and it made me feel like I was in a completely different place.

Now in my house our bed can't really be moved to any other way, so I guess from that point of view I am kind of stuck... Will have to figure out a way to fix that in the future!

So, the reason why I am all about change today is because I just changed my blog image (again) as well as some of the colors for the blog itself, what do you thing?

If you've been reading my blog for a while you probably remember that I used to have this image before, well, sometimes change is all about recycling, right?

Please let me know your thoughts about the "brand new, second hand" image, thumbs up or down???

Have a wonderful day : )

Guilty Pleasure

It's been a while since my last Wednesday Movie Post, so today's post is about a movie I just watched last night at the movies with a few girlfriends.

I guess this movie is like a guilty pleasure, the closest thing to a modern fairy tale; full of love, friendship, relationships, glamour and fashion.

I guess if there's such a thing as a mother ship of "chick flicks" this movie and part 1 would be it.

Even though this last one is the sequel, I have to say it is the perfect ending to a wonderful tv/movie series, and I am talking about not other than SEX AND THE CITY 2.

Anyway, if you've never watched the series and decide to get into it, just watch the two movies and you'll have an idea of what's all about, if you a woman there's got to be something that you can relate to in any of these movies or the tv series, I know I can relate to a lot.

So if you haven't seen any series episodes or the movies, do not think this is your average "desperate housewives" (full of envy, deceive, murders and all those horrible thing that do happen in that show!), of course there is crazy stuff that goes on (I mean c'mon the whole thing is based in a city like NY) but it also takes about the daily life and struggle of 4 girls to find love but not without their love and friendship for each other...

I really enjoyed both of this movies and specially the last one, I would recommend it to any girlfriend and to guys... mmmh, maybe not!

Happy Wednesday!

3 day break

It's Tuesday but it only feels like Monday because we just had a 3 day weekend, now for the rest of the week I am going to be a day short, but don't get me wrong, I am not complaining!

The weekend was very relaxing, didn't do much, went to the beach on Saturday, Sunday and yesterday was a stay at home day, it was so hot during the day that it was just nice to be inside with the A/C on,  our outside thermometer measured 104F or 42C, pretty hot, uh?

So these are the days when it's important to

I do have to admit I'm sort of a sun worshiper myself.

I love laying down for a while, read a book, listen to music or just meditate, but I am also aware of the dangers of too much sun exposure on your skin, so I do use protection and try not to lay down everyday or at the peak hours of the day.

We have only one skin and it's the biggest organ on our body, so we need to take the necessary precautions so it would last us until the end of our days!!!

Well, time to go to work, have a wonderful Monday, oops, I meant Tuesday!!!

Holiday, celebrate...

Today I have two reasons to celebrate, the main is that Such Life in The Tropics turns a year old,

Happy Blog Birthday to Me!!!

But of course this milestone would not mean much without my followers, readers that comment and even those who just stop by to take a peek every now and then...

As of today my blog has 30 official followers (that's about 2.5 per month in the last year), but regardless of how many "officially" read and comment on my humble blog, it's pretty exciting to even think that there's somebody out there paying some kind of attention to what I write and share everyday...

From the bottom of my heart, thanks to all of you out there making a difference in my life, I hope anything of what I write and share makes a difference in yours...

The other reason to celebrate is because today is also a holiday on the island and it's a day off... The Cayman Islands are a British Colony so they (or should I say we?) celebrate Queen Elizabeth's Birthday on this day, "Long Live the Queen"!

Have a wonderful week and hope this is one of many more years of blogger life!!!

Yesterday I was honored with a small award recognition by Kat at Heart 2 Heart and for that I am really thankful and happy.

Now, like most awards, for me to accept this one, I must list 7 things you don't know about me, of course this is not the first time I do this so I apologize before hand in case I already share something before.

1. I struggle to think about what to share on this blog almost every day, but it gives a reason to be creative and keep it up.

2. I am a very peculiar toast eater, I have to always eat the entire crust of the bread and then the inside last (crazy, uh?).

3. I've had my picture publish in 3 different newspapers around the world (Costa Rica, USA and the Cayman Islands) and all of them by chance!

4. I am granddaughter #13 (from older to youngest) on one side of my family and # 3 on the other.

5. My best friend in the entire world is my Mom.

6. I speak 3 languages; Spanish, English and Italian.

7. I always wanted to write a book, I guess having this blog is the closest I've ever been to fulfilling that dream!

I guess I am supposed to pass this along, but this time it's for any "versatile bloggers" out there that would like such an honor, please feel free to grab the award and enjoy it.

Have a wonderful Sunday!!!
