Flashback Friday

Attention all, the weekend is here (well, not like you really needed me to remind you, right?).

Anybody has any major plans for the next couple of days?

I do.

Well, maybe not major plans, like burning down the house or anything radical like that...

Burning Down the House, that takes me to my flashback Friday video with no other than Talking Heads, remember that song?

Well, today's video comes with an extra twist.

Remember VH1's Pop Up Videos? When I lived in Italy I used to love them and used to watch VH1 all the time, mostly because all the other channels were in Italian and with very weird voice translations so VH1 was one of the few in English (mostly cause of the music).

So, now to my featured video.

And back to my weekend plans... Tomorrow our friends Chris and Joan are tying the knot at a beach wedding ceremony and then to a celebration toast at a local restaurant, it should be fun!

Besides that, I am planning to start packing for my trip on Tuesday. I still have to work on Monday so if I have everything packed by then, I don't have to worry about it then and I can go to the gym one last time after work that day!

Anyway, here's to a beautiful weekend for everybody, have fun, be good and enjoy it to max!

Happy Weekend!

Photo Thursday

How is your day looking today? Sunny and hot, cloudy and cold or perhaps combination of both?

Our weather is very nice today and it's been since Saturday (that it rained like there was no tomorrow!).

There is Tropical Storm Emily lurking around the Caribbean, near Haiti and Dominican Republic and perhaps that is part of the reason we have nice clear skies today.

So, to prove my point here are some random pictures around downtown...

Cruise Ship in town

Kayaks for rent

Another Cruise Ship

The Port Autority

Pirate Ship
 Well, hope everybody has a great day wherever you are!!!

And, since I am "abroad", well at least for those reading anywhere else than the Cayman Islands, today I am liking back to "For the Love of Blogs" - Abroad Group, in case you'll like to read other blogs that are also abroad.

Have a great Thursday!!!

change of strategy

Thanks to everybody that commented yesterday.

But, I think I have changed my mind...

Instead of having one of those signs for unattended children at the gallery, perhaps I should just hire one of this instead...

LOL! Just kidding...

I am so looking forward to next week as I'll be getting on a plane outta here and back to Costa Rica to visit my family, can hardly wait!

Also, if you are in the mood to win yourself something nice, head over to Perfectly Imperfect and sign up for Holly's very first giveaway of some awesome Mary Kay products.

I've tried Mary Kay before and the products are quite nice, so head over there NOW! In case you don't have time right this minute, just make sure to sign up before August 9th.

Happy Hump Day!

calling all parents

Having children is definitely not in my agenda, not for a long time (perhaps since I can remember).

Now that I work at an art gallery were items range from the 100's to the 1000's of dollar$$$, the little desire left on me, decreases every time people show up with some spoiled, rude or plain naughty little ones.  

But then it's worst when those little ones are not only naughty but also completely very unattended by their parents or guardians. That's when I lose faith in parenthood and I believe that not all people are cut up to be parents.

NEW sign I want at the gallery
Because having sex is the easy part, perhaps too easy nowadays. And for the purpose of procreation it only takes two (male and female for that specific purpose). 

But then it takes more than just being female to be a mother and male to be a father, it takes; commitment, responsibility, dedication, unselfishness, communication, respect for thyself and your offspring and of course lots and lots of LOVE!!!

And this is the part that a lot of people need to focus once they are on that boat...

In my case, I am not on that boat, so I see no reason why it should be the one paying attention to other children (unless asked for or they are my responsibility), so people MIND YOUR OWN CHILDREN!

This little detail would make my days easier and much more enjoyable...

The sign above is what I would like to put in the gallery nowadays, although I would change the kitten part (cause I love kitties and I don't want them to be abused) and give away baby iguanas!!!

Isn't it a great idea?!?!?!? LOL

Have a great Tuesday!!!

Wet Weekend

The weather was wet, wet, wet and then some more rain!

Well, Saturday to be exact.

It started raining from morning and it only stopped for a little while, which gave us enough time for us to go pick up a bed that we borrowed from a friend (and that my Mom will be using while she is here in August for two weeks, can't wait).

Other than those two hours, I believe it rained none stop for at least 4 to 5 hours.

Enough for our back yard to get flooded.

Sunday was pretty dry but still quite cloudy.

Now, as far as my hair goes... Well, I did it. I went on Friday and spent almost 4 hours! at the hair salon... (and that's the reason why I don't go to hair salons very often).

Here are the results.

side view with still a bit wet hair
back view, I like it!

What do you guys think?

Have to say I have mixed feelings about it and at times I think it looks o.k. but others, not so much...

Also because the highlights are kind of "fresh" they don't curl as the rest of the hair and this makes it look strange...But, it's a change and I look different, so that's was the whole point.

I am going to give it a few more days to settle and see if I finally like it 100%.

Meanwhile, let's have a great week and a wonderful Month of August!
