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!!

Dial Vitamin Boost Giveaway

Howdy folks! Dial sent me a bottle of their new Vitamin Boost Body Wash to test out. They even sent me a few coupons to give away to you guys! Don't they ROCK?! Yeah they do, and so does this new body wash! I got the product a few weeks ago, but as is with most things that come to my house, it just sat in the living room unopened. Not because I didn't want to open it...but I've been a little short on time. Even with several snow days it seems like I just don't have enough hours in a day. Does that mean I don't wash? NOOOO. It means that this body wash just made it upstairs with me this morning! LOL I'm always skeptical about "moisturizing" body washes. I have extremely sensitive, eczema prone skin. So I really have to be careful. Even some washes that claim to be triple moisturizing dry me out and leave me wishing I had one of those cat towers to rub up against. So I finally got to test the waters with this one. Here are what this product c

Dial Baby & Kids (Giveaway)

Let me start by saying that the toddler years are fun...and a true test of faith and patience LOL! I love my little tot with everything I have in me. But every day she tests my limits in way I didn't even know were possible. I mostly laugh. She is a very spirited little girl who LOVES to be outside. I mean she will cry to go outside and sometimes all she wants to do is climb in a chair and sit on the porch and watch the cars go by. On this particular day though...(Jesus be a fence) she wanted to chase lizards, pop bubbles, shred leaves, kick her ball in the sticker bushes and throw a flower pot off the deck to see how far she could get it to go. Maybe softball is in her future, who knows LOL. That said ball ended up bursting from being repeatedly kicked in the sticker bushes... After our world wind backyard excursion, we go inside to have a snack and settle down a bit. Luckily she likes to wash her hands. I mean, she almost had that lizard! She really enjoys Dial W

Baby Magic is Here! My Birth Story

Princesses get their way. And true to form, my little princess decided that she, and only she would be in control of when she arrived. Forget about me or the doctors trying to schedule ANYTHING! **This is a long post that goes into detail. Read at your own risk.** On Sunday, July 21st...no scratch that. On Saturday, July 20th, I was having cramps. They weren't too painful and were coming only about once every hour. Honestly, I thought I had gas. I had a good bit of visitors that day and told everybody that I felt like I was going to have the baby soon. I was already on bed rest and wasn't doing much. Thanks to some awesome friends, I had enough food that all I had to do was warm it and eat it. After all of the company left, I really just wanted to lie down. So I went to bed. I was awakened maybe 3 times during the night with these "cramps." The next morning I got out of bed about 10:30am (late for me) and took a shower, hoping that the heat would soothe me.
