I owed this too…

On my original vacation post, waaaaay back when… I mentioned pictures that I could hardly believe were me. And well, yesterday when I posted, I neglected to share.

So, I’m sharing them today.

Just so you know, these pictures were taken by my sweet husband, who always gets the best pics out of me… I don’t know why… πŸ™‚

I usually look like this…

Or some version of that…

After my mini-makeover on our last day of vacation, my husband took these next photos…

And my favorite!

That’s ME?

I mean… Yes, that’s me…

Ok, Ok, so I can’t believe it either. If I hadn’t seen him take the pictures, and hadn’t been THERE, I wouldn’t really believe it.

So, yes, that’s me… or something.


Mini Vacation – Days 2 and 3

Ok, so, although it’s true that by now I deserve an all new mini vacation πŸ™‚ I really really really want to get all of this written down. This was an EPIC mini-vacation, people… Epic.

I know, it’s been months. I wish I could have some sort of excuse that was exciting or interesting. Truth is… I just… couldn’t write. Don’t ask me why. Because nothing makes sense. But, hey, I’ve never claimed to make sense, so, here we go!

After the most incredible Day 1, I could have expected to just relax for the next couple of days and be more than happy. I mean, really, have I said that I LOVED the concert? I did? Well, forgive me for repeating myself, because it was AWESOME!

But on our second day away, my lovely husband had other plans for us… Since we were out well past our bedtime πŸ™‚ and went to bed at around 5-5:30 am on Friday morning, we got up around lunchtime. Talked, laughed and made plans for our day. We decided to skip breakfast and move directly to lunch… Considering that by the time we left our hotel it was around 1:30 pm, it seemed like a good idea πŸ™‚

We went to our favorite hamburger joint in San Juan. (if you EVER think of coming to PR, please, please, please let me know so that I can tell you about this lovely place) It is always full, serves ONLY burgers with whatever cheese you want and the burgers are home-made and absolutely mouth-wateringly delicious (did I mention they are super inexpensive? Because they are! We payed less than $20 for the two of us – with tip). So, we had burgers and fries and went for a walk through Old San Juan.

We walked, laughed and talked while looking for a place to have some dessert. We settled on a little bakery where we had some sweets and coffee and then walked to the Tapia Theater and got ourselves tickets for a play! (Las Conquistas de Norman – En la Grama) After that, we went to the mall πŸ™‚ I was looking for a cover for my iPad (my wonderful husband was just humoring me – he had already bought me one!!!) so we walked the stores and talked and laughed some more.

We went to our hotel, bathed, changed and went to our play. It was quite a night. A lovely play in a beautiful theater. Wonderful company and Old San Juan. We walked and talked after the play. It seemed like a magical evening.

We never really found a place where we wanted to eat… So, we ended up getting Mcnuggets on our way back to the hotel. Klassy, huh!? πŸ™‚ They were delicious, though, and we had a blast.

Day 3 was just wonderful as well.

We started off with breakfast at a lovely restaurant in a little boutique hotel across the street. The place was absolutely gorgeous. Quaint and cozy and it looked like we were stepping into a magazine.

After checking out, we went to another mall (of course I was still looking for my iPad cover – πŸ™‚ ). While there, my husband took me to a salon, and I got a -much needed- hair cut. It was lovely. I felt incredible. He also surprised me with a gorgeous pair of swarovski crystal earrings when I walked out and we had lunch at my favorite Pasta place. I truly couldn’t have asked for a better getaway.
