weekend ready

Welcome Friday, it's so nice to see you again!

Yesterday an old friend from high school arrived on the island and will be here for a few days, I am hoping I will get to spend some time with her.

Anyway, with the weekend so close I decided to share some pictures of my last weekend.

Yanique socializing with 2 tourist girls
Royal Palms Beach
lonely lounge chairs... wanna come over?
Isn't Seven Mile Beach awesome?

The ocean color is always amazing and don't think I'll ever get tired of it!

In other news, today I took kitty #7 to get neutered.

Long Tail a.k.a. "LT" is being coming sporadically to feed with our other kitties, but he sometimes gets on a fight with BTK who is the leader cat of our pack... We figure we can help him by getting him fixed and perhaps that would help with the "territorial problems".

Have yourself a wonderful weekend... Stay tuned for Monday as I am starting my very next giveaway!!!

invisible cat tricks!

I other day I found this image via Pinterest and I couldn't help but laughing out loud at both the creativity some people have to come up with this stuff and of course the kitties!

My favorite? The Invisible Window installation... How about your?

I hope you found it as amusing as I did!

Have a wonderful Thursday >''<

dinner last night

Lately I've been very organized when it comes to plan dinners ahead of time as I am trying to make very conscious food choices to loose weight and make my exercise worth it.

Of course sometimes it's easier to go for a delivery pizza, but it's just not healthy, so instead I am putting a lot of effort on making our own pizza (with a store bought dough), soon I even wanna try and make my own healthy dough.

Last night dinner menu was Szechuan Chicken with White Rice, it was yummy but I specially like it because it's such a super easy recipe, so today I decided to share it (the chicken part- not the rice!)

  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into cubes
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 5 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons white wine vinegar (I didn't have any so I used White Balsamic Vinegar!)
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon white sugar
  • 3 green onions, sliced diagonally into 1/2 inch pieces
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper, or to taste

  1. Place the chicken and cornstarch into a bag or bowl, and toss to coat. Heat oil in a wok or large skillet over medium-high heat. Fry the chicken pieces and garlic, stirring constantly until lightly browned. Stir in the soy sauce, vinegar, sugar and water. Cover, and cook until the chicken pieces are no longer pink inside, 3 to 5 minutes.
  2. Stir in the green onion, and cayenne pepper, cook uncovered for about 2 more minutes. Serve over white rice.  
the final result

Perhaps the photo doesn't really show how good it really was, but it was yummy and so fast to make...

Happy Wednesday!

Car Wash

On Saturday I was not able to take Yanique on a Submarine ride, so instead we decided to go to the Cayman Islands Humane Society Shelter and walk some of the doggies as they are all day inside those kennel and are in the need of burning a lot of energy.

But before we went to the shelter, I asked Yanique if it was o.k. that I take my car for a quick wash?... So we went to the car wash.

I've been there many times before, but for her it was the first time, so right at the entrance she asked if we could stay inside the car and go through the machine. Of all the many times I have been there, I never knew it was o.k. to "ride" the machine... but this time we did!

Have you ever been through a car wash machine before? Well, if you haven't, then you have come to the right place and if you have, perhaps you will still enjoy our ride!

After the "car wash ride" we went to the shelter, walked 3 beautiful dogs and then head off to the beach.

I am still working in getting us a ride on the Submarine, hopefully for next week!

Have a great Tuesday :)

Mug Swap

There are many things I like about blogging; expressing myself, sharing my ideas and life with the outside world, meeting new people, giveaways and specially swaps.

Even though I've never done a swap via my blog, I have participated in a few in the past.

The latest swap I took part of was also my very first Mug Swap via Syndal's Synfully Delicious blog and hosted by both Syndal's blog & On the Front Porch blog... I loved participating and the end result, my new mug was the best part!

As a swap partner this time I got a very nice girl from Chicago (Shannyn), we both exchanges a few emails to give each other ideas of what we would like.

My cup arrived just last week (a couple of day after the due date to blog about it, so this post is a bit late).

Shannyn got my a beautiful Snoopy cup and the best part of it was that she even personalized it for me, how awesome is that?!?!? I have to say I just love my new mug and will share for a long time...

So, thanks Shannyn for my wonderful cup, I will share it for many years!!!

If you would like to see the mug I sent Shannyn, make sure to visit her blog, just click here!

Have a great day!!!
