Rainbow Birthday Party

Nena and I threw ourselves a birthday party this year. Our birthdays are 2 weeks apart and after 10 years of friendship we decided it was the perfect time throw a joint party. We decided that we would pretend to be 10 again (10 years of being friends...get it?) That would put us back to 1988...the good old days. For a month we reminisced about all things childhood like rainbow bright, care bears, cabbage patch dolls, barbie, jelly bracelets, garbage pail kids, swatch watches, hyper color...I could go on forever. We asked our girlfriends to dress as they would have in 1988 and be ready to return to childhood. We had so much fun roller skating and playing a game that challenged our 80's tv show knowledge. Do you remember? Silver Spoons, Family Ties, The Cosby Show, Wonder Years, many memories!

Christmas Tree Cutting

Puerto Rico

In November my best friend Nena and I went to Puerto Rico for a little girls vacation. It was absolutely AMAZING! Her parents live there in Dorado Estates which is a stunning neighborhood. We spent most of our time lounging at the beach club, reading and soaking up some sun. Nena ran the Diva half marathon while we were there and rocked it with a new best personal time. 

This is the fitness center in the neighborhood.

 Private beach club...pure heaven!
 I did a lot of driving in the golf cart while Nena trained. Love that thing!
 This is the water park in the neighborhood...yes I said there is a water park IN the neighborhood.

 Beefy firefighters were waiting to put her medal on.

 This is pretty much how I remember most of the trip! Laying on the beach...
