Vampires, Witches, and Wolves.. OH MY!

2 Peter 1:5-7

“But also for this reason, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue, to virtue knowledge, to knowledge self-control, to self-control perseverance, to perseverance godliness, to godliness brotherly kindness, and to brotherly kindness love.”

We are back! Yeah! We had such a good time! Thank you all for commenting while I was gone it gave me something to read while I was in the airport all stinkin day on Sunday.
By the time we got back on Sunday night it was getting kind of late and none of us (Kelly, Kurt, Klee and I) had really eaten anything since we were in an airport all day. We decided to take advantage of Klee’s discount at chili’s and went there for dinner. I could not tell you the last time I had chili’s! I was just as good as I remembered! After dinner we went to redbox and rented Alice in Wonderland. When we got to K’s house though there was an episode of Jimmy Kimmel on and he was featuring the Twilight cast. Which thankfully K had the remote and she wouldn’t change it. After watching that I have decided Peter Facinelli(carlisle cullen) is my favorite in real life.

Then we started watching The Gates. Holy COW. I should have just walked away.. But I couldn’t it was like a train wreck you want to look away, but you can’t. You just keep looking! There were Vampires, Witches, and Wolves.. I need to tell Jlo about it, so up her ally! So now if I can some how get the uverse app to record the show without Kelly knowing it will be a perfect summer!

Monday we headed home and I was so excited to see my baby!! Thanks again to the Sisk Family & the Garner Family who had joint custody while we were gone! You saved us about 275 in boarding fees!

When we go home our Crepe Myrtles were blooming and they looked so pretty, and since I don’t have a bebe to pose in front of them.. I used my bebe..
I think he was annoyed at me here!

I am going to keep the vaca talk to a minimum, but here is our first night is San Juan.
We were all so hungry and wanted some "local flavor" so we had the cab driver recommend us to this fabulous restaurant.  I got the stuffed eggplant and mofongo which had been on the travel channel before so I figured why not!. I am so glad I did! It was amazing!

Mofongo is on the right
"Mofongo is a plantain-based dish from Puerto Rico. Mofongo is generally made from fried green plantains (although fried yuca or breadfruit are possible) which is mashed together with broth, garlic, olive oil, and pork cracklings or bits of bacon. It is often filled with vegetables, chicken, crab, shrimp, or beef and is often served with fried meat and chicken broth soup.Mofongo relleno is mofongo stuffed with stewed beef, chicken or seafood, with stewed sauce poured over."
Kelly got a crawfish Mofongo bowl..

After dinner we headed back at went to bed. I read The Carrie Diaries on the plane and finished it that night.. It was really really good. I recommend it for SITC lovers. It was a very easy read.

The next morning the boys played golf. K, Julie, and I went to the beach. We only lasted about an hour out there before we had to head in for the shade. We had an amazing breakfast overlooking the ocean. They had this really cool machine that would take the fresh oranges and squeeze them right in to your cup. I loved it! Once the boys got back we headed for the boat. Boarding the ship is just one big cluster.
Here was our stateroom.
not nearly as small as I thought it was going to be.

Bobby & Julie got a balcony. I know people tell you you don't need one, but to us it was totally worth it to have at least one room have one. It was so pretty out there and we were able to get some amazing views!
Dinner the first night I was feeling adventurous and I tired Talapia. Surprising I didn't hate it! I may even try it again, I liked how it didn't taste fishy.

I'll have more tomorrow, but sadly we didn't take many pictures!

Mofongo was on diners, drive ins and dives and Guy said it was the best thing he ever ate! I would love to try it, but they restaurant he went to served it different, but still looks great!!

By the way you need to go out of town again so that I can have callaway back!! I loved him, he cuddles at night when we went to bed! BUT!! I am glad you are back.

PS I still have your key, so when I see you I will give it back, hopefully if I remember!! :)
