I've been anticipating this day for months!
Since Raul and I both have family there, we won't be staying at some fancy resort right off the beach. Nope. We'll be staying in the capital, Santo Domingo. Where the power goes off for about 8 hours straight and you often have to shower with freezing cold water sometimes out of a bucket.
It may sound awful but it's awesome...and I can't wait.
Another great thing, most people like to show you you're welcome in their home by offering you tons of food.
I currently weigh 127.4.

Well, yeah it is but lets be honest. You'll probably get me something and...I probably won't like it and I'll keep it in my closet for years in case you ask me about it I can lie and say "Oh, yeah, I use it all the time! Look here it is!" until a few years pass and I'm convinced you've forgotten about it and I can toss it in a Goodwill bin. Phew.
So here goes ladies & gents.
The birthday wishlist.
This beautiful lace peasant dress I would wear everyday!
Cupcake print from TheLobsterPots Shop
A combination of guava, red velvet and vanilla chocolate Buttercream cupcakes with some champagne to wash it down!
Well, it was either this or a post about us doing a whole lot of cleaning, packing and eating hot dogs for lunch and dinner.

This is exactly what Miami needed, an upscale Dominican restaurant that serves good food and great ambience. The location doesn't hurt either!
The restaurant is a big open space with dark woods, decorated with beautiful chandeliers and Dominican artwork.
They even had a live band playing AWESOME remakes of recent hits like Rihannas Umbrella & Gnarls Barkleys Crazy.

Turns out its right on the corner of 5th & Washington.
I was getting attacked by mosquitos so the waitress brought out basil because apparently "I don't know, the chefs told me it helps with mosquitos".
It didn't work but I appreciated the delicious scent.
Sirs empty chair (he was at a work event).
I missed you, Lover!

I didn't want to leave. But I did. Boo.
Have a great weekend!

So that's exactly what I did. I surprised Raul with a little celebration...on June 16th.
Better early than never, right?

I heard it was a little "ghetto" but I didn't think so at all. You pull in to your desired parking area, put your windows up, tune into the station playing your movie and sit back and pretend you're living a scene out of Grease or Happy Days. Except that there was no getting to 1st base in the backseat.
I'd definately take the hour trip to the drive-in again. Ya know, something different.

La Tambora Restaurant on US1 - "Tan Dominicano como el merengue". Hehehahahoho.
[Lo 3 Golpe]
I could happily eat this everyday of my life.
& what Dominican meal is complete without lefleco lojo? Well, all of them but psh, whatever. I prefer the merengue flavor.
Cheap, good & best part is they're open 'til like 3am. Late night grub spot!
To all my non-Dominican frangs, do yourselves a favor and have some mangu. I know it looks unattractive but trust.
Boyfriend usually brings me home flowers from work but last week he came home with these.
They're Mishas but Mishas cupcakes are better than no cupcakes & I'm glad lover knows me enough to know that.
