Puerto Rico HOOOOOOOO!!!!!!

I am officially declaring June as a month of madness...and it's not even over yet!!! The month has been busy, but a good busy. A group of my gal pals and I ventured to Puerto Rico and man, it was...simply beautiful.
It started with a little hiccup...well a big hiccup. I left my purse in Columbia and did not realize it until I got to Atlanta! I didn't think I would make it to PR that day, but by the grace of God I did! And met some pretty awesome people while delayed!

We just so happened to be in Condado during their Culinary Festival...and you know that was perfect for me! Food, dancing and drinks...all in the street!!
Welcome drink!

The bestie and I dancing in the street
Beautiful people, beautiful beaches, beautiful food...I could go on and on. My only complaint was the heat! Apparently the island's electricity is produced by coal therefore no central air in most places, not even the airport! It was HAWT!!! Oh yeah...everything is SLOOOWWWW. No such thing as fast service LOL...but who's in a rush on vacation?!
The men wore speedos!!! This is Niko! LOL
And now for what I ate...
Nasty wings :(

Western Omelette

I need the recipe for this hot sauce!

The best crab cake EVER

Pork and Ginger Fried Rice

Shrimp Mofongo

Yes those are Cheez Doodles! And a Cuban
It was an amazing trip and I can't wait to go again! Maybe this time I will see more sights. There seemed to be some kind of stigma. We tried to do the Bacardi Factory tour but there was a bomb threat. I was content to just sit on the beach and get a super tan...which I did! I even managed to speak some broken Spanish and French!

Have any of you guys ever been to Puerto Rico? How did you like it? What vacations are you planning? I need ideas! I could get used to this tropical island thing!

Adios!!

Pura Vida!

Hey y'all!

I keep making promises to do better about posting and then I break those promises. So I won't make any such promise this time!

I wanted to give you all a little run down on a trip I recently took (and LOVED). Two of my sisters and my two best friends and I decided to make a run for the equator. To Costa Rica! We started planning pretty early and got tickets and such purchased. We stayed in Jaco (pronounced Haa-CO). I'm still not sure I'm saying that correctly. You should have seen the looks on the immigration officer's face when I pronounced it as it is spelled. I'm pretty sure he called me an ignorant American.

Anywho, we flew from Charleston because they had the better fares and schedules at the time that we booked. Charleston to Miami to Jan Santamaria Airport. Something happened on our flight and me and my bestie were asked to move to another seat. It was actually better seats than what we had. Since we were so accommodating, we were given some l…

New School Dating

How many single readers do I have? Are you struggling with dating? No? Good for you! Yes? Why is it so hard?! Sigh.

Well, I have several thoughts on that last part. Mostly, I'm glad that it is not just ME that dating is so hard for.

Online Dating - Dating sites specifically.

Y'all, I signed up for online dating and almost instantly regretted it! I paid for a month and cancelled my subscription after two weeks. What are you really here for? Who sent you? Those are the questions I wanted to ask most of the guys that messaged me. Mostly they just lurked on my profile. Like, don't you know these sites tell me when you view my profile? I can see it. Why aren't you saying anything? Do I have a boob hanging out in one of my pictures? Phew, no I don't. Sigh. So yeah, that got nowhere. I'm impatient, I know, but online is not for me. Clearly it works for some people though. I find that if you will lie about the simple things, it will be impossible for me to trust you wit…

Baby No More, Baby Magic is FOUR!

Like seriously, where did the time go?

She was just a wee little thing yesterday! Now she is sassy, independent and full of honesty. Like FULL of honesty. She knows nothing about your feelings so she doesn't give 2 cents about hurting them. The kid just tells it like it is. And I hope she never changes.

I decided not to have a party this year. But guess what? It turned into a party anyway! Friends don't let friends eat cake alone apparently! It was awesome! The night before I baked her cake. She refused to go to sleep so I let her decorate some of the extra cupcakes. She insisted on licking ALL the frosting when we were done. When she finally went to sleep, I hand pumped what seemed like a thousand balloons - and my carpal tunnel is still yelling at me about it. I put the balloons on the floor in her room so she would be surprised when she woke up. She was! She woke up singing "Mommy, it's morninggggg, it's my birthdayyyyyyyy!" She's so stinking cute!
