Oh Yeah!

Hello Ladies and Gentlemen out there!!! Yes, today is all about being calm while enjoying the fact that the week is finally over and by tomorrow I will be boarding a plane and leaving this rock for a few days. 

To say that "I am looking forward to really disconnect from it all" is perhaps an understatement in this case, it's been more than 6 months that I haven't travel any farther than 22 miles (to the other side of the island) so imagine that!

Plus, It's been a busy few weeks with a lot of changes in my life, including some pounds shed [insert celebratory dance here], so trust me IT IS TIME!!!

But besides the going away part, I am mostly looking forward to good quality time with the most favorite girls from my family (Mom, Aunt Cynthia and my favorite cousin Maria Jose), plus the amazing MADONNA who gladly agreed with serenading us while we are in Florida... How nice of her, right?

Oh yeah... So, here's the plan.

I am going away tomorrow to hopefully return safe and sound - full batteries recharged, with photos to show you and lots of new clothes- next Thursday... So, till then, "talk among yourself", have some coffee, don't work too hard and before you know it I will be around again.

Sure I'll say "Hello" to Madonna for you... you're welcome!

Happy Friday and rest of the weekend!!!

it's that time of the week...

Hello All!

Today is Thursday, we are half way through with the week, one more day and it's Saturday, the day I leave for Miami.

I haven't been out of this rock since May, which means 6 loooooooooonnng months and at this point everything is getting under my skin, so Saturday cannot come fast enough, but it will be here... So today it's off to more interesting things...

And just to continue on the Pirates "theme", here's today's photo from the past...

1. This photo was taken 2 years ago on Pirates Week 2010.

2. My friend Natalia no longer lives on the island and this was the last Pirates Festival we enjoyed together.

3. I still have that dress but finally this year I gave it away to one of my best friends, since I am losing weight, it doesn't fit me very much anymore!

4. This was taken right at the waterfront in George Town the day of the Pirates Landing Parade.

5. 2010 was the last year we actually watched the Parade, since then we've participated every year with a float on it.

Well, that's all for today, hope everybody has a wonderful Thursday!!!

The Photo

If I was asked to show only one photo from the the past few days, one that reflects what the Pirates Week landing Parade is all about, this photo would be the one...

I love the colors, the composition and the fact that it's such a genuine example of what a Parade is all about.

The kids look so happy and also kind of "clueless" of what is really going on around it...

What do you think? Like it, not, maybe?

Have a great day!!!!

10 on Tuesday

Hello All!

Today I am liking back to Linny's Vault again for another edition of 10 on Tuesday

1. After a full week of event planning, then the actual event and finally finishing a very busy week, plus being on a diet for more than a week, having yesterday off was a wonderful way to start a new week!

2. But because of yesterday's busy week, plus dieting, I guess my little immune system decided to officially crash on Saturday and then on Sunday I woke up with a horrible swollen lip and cold sore, yuck, it sucks!

3. So far, so good with my diet, I have lost about 12 lbs and still counting. For those that talk about loosing weight too fast, well this is what this (doctor controlled) diet is all about, the name of the diet is HCG in case you want to find out more.

4. For the past two days, one of our cats (BTK- the momma cat) was M.I.A. and I was starting to get very worried that she got hurt of killed, gladly she finally showed up again yesterday for supper.

5. Yesterday I spent most of the day with some of my girlfriend, we hang out at the beach and the weather was just superb!

6. On Saturday we stopped by a new store here on the island where they sell all things candy, the name of the store is "It's Sugar", check out the Rice Krispies Treat my husband found, according to him that is his "portion size"!!!

7. Although I don't have as much in my little brain this week, I am having a hard time coming up with things to post and it's only 10!!!

8. Lately we've been into the show Dexter, we are only on Season 2 and we are hooked!

9. Saturday I leave to Miami to see family and the Madonna Concert, can't hardy wait!

10. This is it for today, hope everybody has a wonderful day!!!
