Miami we need to see more of each other...

I usually try to travel home every year at least once. Usually its in December since I have the week between x-mas and new year's off. This time though, I was there for a much shorter time since the ticket was too expensive if I would have returned on the day I wanted. It was a blast though. I got to spend time with family, saw friends I hadn't seen in a long time and ate at some really great places. I really enjoyed my trip down there this year- the only downside is that time sure flies when you're having fun. My grandmother really spoiled me too... she made my favorite Cuban Dish- Rabo Encendido- (Ox-tail stew). She also made Churros another favorite- super fattening, but hey I only get to eat it once a year. I will be posting those recipes soon, but in the mean time, I am posting a few pictures from my trip. There were a couple of things I did which I did not get pics of... one being hanging out with my good friend Gaudy. We saw avatar in 3D... so fun! I also spent a day at Dolphin Mall with my brother Eric... it was nice to have some solo time with my little brother... it had been a long time since we did anything together like that. Among other things, I looked forward to waking up every morning to a cup of coffee with my mom, grandmother, and Eric where we'd talk for at least an hour. There was another evening where we hung out with my uncle Ruben, my aunt Cristy, my mom and grandma and talked over some Manchego cheese and wine. It was just nice to connect with everyone again. It's always so bittersweet when the end of my trip is near because on one hand I am anxious to come home and see my husband, but on the other hand, I know it will most likely be another year till I see most of my family and friends again.

At Mr. Yum with my mom, Eric and Anabelle. The food here is amazing and the decor is so cute... This place serves the best plum wine you'll ever have. The food was amazing too.

At Havana Harry's with my family.  Man the food at this place is so good... if you're curious just check out their menu.

At Chili's with Jenny and her mom Nancy... I hadn't seen them in FOREVER... I seriously have known this girl since I was three... So good to catch up!

At Cinebistro with my aunt Cristy, my mom, grandma, and some friends of our family Soly, Ana Laura and Soly (Sr.)... We saw It's complicated... one of the funniest movies I've ever seen. If you haven't seen it yet, you need to go... it was awesome.
