Happy girls are the prettiest girls

Me llamo Adriana

"Only fools live in the past or carry envy to the present." 
--Chi Chi Rodriguez, Puerto Rican golfer

"Bigger than life is not difficult for me. I am bigger than life." 
--Rita Moreno, Puerto Rican actress

The reason I used the above quotes is solely because the people who spoke them are Puerto Rican. 

Because....

I'm going to Puerto Rico! 

But not until November. 
(ahhh phooey, I hate waiting!)
I bought a Groupon for a 5 night stay at the Water Beach Club Hotel in San Juan...
Hello, lovely rooftop pool and lounge where I shall be spending some time!

...and I just can't wait to see the beautiful island my wonderful husband's family is from! When Billy told his dad today that we are going to PR, he got teary and said "you really want to go there? That's wonderful!" I think both he and my mama-in-law miss their island home, and the rest of the family that is still there. I am very much looking forward to meeting a few of Billy's relatives, though he says he won't let them all know, as we would need to stay a long time to see them all properly.

I need to brush up on my high school Spanish, what I do remember won't get me far! I took two years of French, followed by two years of Spanish, and only vaguely remember either. I sometimes mix the little French I know with my Spanish. I used to get in trouble by my Spanish teacher for using French pronunciations {Hablo Anglais...no, Ingles?!) Confession, I had to ask Billy how to say my post title!! I think Rosetta Stone is in my future, geesh.

Have any of you been to Puerto Rico? What are some must-sees?
