let the celebrations begin

It's only Oct. 27th and already the stores here in Grand Cayman are packed with Christmas decorations, lights, trees and all things red & green.

The other day I walked into a store and it looked like both Santa Claus and Rudolph went partying the night before and then came in a barfed all over it, so much Christmas stuff, that it actually gave me a headache!

I know economy is down and places have the do their best to attract business, but c'mon Christmas decor in October?!?!?

I guess next year, once you take down the 4th of July decor, it's about time to start looking for the Christmas tree, LOL!

So, my point is; if we are going to start decorating/celebrating Christmas from two months before, I think it's in order to start celebrating my birthday in December since the actual day is in late February, don't you agree?

Which is why, I will be available to receive gifts as of Dec. 1st... I am sure I am going to love your, LOL!

Have a wonderful day and oh well, Merry Christmas as well!!!

Grand Pumpkin Island

Yesterday I visited my very first pumpkin patch, right here in the Caribbean Island of Grand Cayman [believe it or not].

Of course, this pumpkin patch isn't an actual pumpkin plantation, but one patch at a nursery, still very much worth visiting!

I managed to pick 3 awesome pumpkins that I brought home to carve for the very first time!

By the time I got home it was getting kind of late, so we only managed to carved one each.

So being my first time carving a pumpkin, I was very excited so I got right to it...

Meanwhile my husband carved his own with our dog Sheba paying close attention to the process...

And now for the final result... [Insert drum roll here]

Pretty nice result, eh? I loved carving my very first pumpkin, I am going to try and carve the last one of the three tomorrow... Hoping for better weather although Hurricane Rina is roaming the neighborhood, hopefully it will stay away from our little island.

Well, I guess we are ready for Halloween.... Happy Tuesday : )

Expo done but weekend gone...

Even though I live in the Caribbean, I don't quite remember when was the last time I saw the sun shinning.

Weather is been so rainy that I feel as I'm starting to get green musk behind my ears!

Saturday was our last day for the Chamber of Commerce Expo, we had a great time and we managed to collect over 710 signatures for the Grouper Moon Petition, so with just that the whole effort of participating on the expo, made it worth it!

Here are some random pictures of the Expo.

Paradise Coffee booth... yuuumy stuff!
Mr. Electric, winner of Best Small Exhibit
perhaps they won cause they had this secret weapon?!?!?

On Saturday evening after the Expo (and despite my tiredness), we went to a Mystery Murder Dinner Party- 'Till Death Do us Part, at our friend Julia's house, we had a great time.

This game was giving to our friend Patrick as a Christmas gift from his parents that live in Texas, the funniest part is that is all based in the Cayman Islands!

I played Chatty Bodden-Ebanks, a columnist from a local newspaper and paparazzi at all events, I was a non suspect, so I didn't get many clues during the whole deal, but it was still very much fun.

My husband played a singer/entertainment from Las Vegas called Newton Polyester, I think he really enjoyed getting this role.

So, it was a great weekend, rain, tiredness and all... Now, I am not sure if I am ready to start another week just yet, but here I go again...

Happy Monday!!!
