Feliz lunes a todos.!!! Happy Monday everyone.!!! I hope everyone’s weekend was spectacular and picture worthy.! I had a fabulous weekend 🙂 On Friday, I went to a holiday party at my job. We spent the afternoon in Chinatown and boy did we eat.! A lot.! I always enjoy spending time in Chicago’s Chinatown. I have many fond memories of hanging out there in my youth. On Saturday, I got to hang out with my dad and do some Christmas shopping for him. And on Saturday evening, I got to try out my herb salmon recipe on a willing participant. I got a thumbs up, so yay.!! Of course I worked out all weekend because the weather was in the 40s, so I had to take advantage of the warmer weather.

This weekend, I decided to continue with the Bacardi theme because my dear friend is leaving for Puerto Rico soon. We have one more goodbye dinner scheduled with our close friends this week at Girl and the Goat. I’m very excited to eat there as they’ve won so many foodie awards. But it will be bittersweet because my birthday buddy is heading for warmer climes. However, I still wanted to welcome her to the Latin quarter with this Bacardi commercial. I promise fellow readers, the Most Interesting Man in the World will return next week. Enjoy.!! Y salud.!!

Bacardi break…

Feliz lunes mis amigos.!! Happy Monday my friends.!! How was everyone’s weekend.!? Hopefully stellar.! I know mine was 🙂 I spent a lovely Friday evening with a person who is dear to my heart.! And got a thumbs up on my pie making abilities 🙂 Yay me.! Saturday was hectic from sun up to sun down running errands and squeezing in a late dinner with my father.! Let’s not forget all those workouts.! Geesh…. Though I received another lovely slimming compliment at my job, so it must be working.!

On Sunday though, I went to a goodbye party or a despidida for a very good friend 😦 I’m very sad to see her leave as we have been friends for a long while. We did our master’s degree program and most of our study abroads together while in school.! She even came to visit me during our birthday week when I lived in Mexico. And that’s why dear readers, I can’t even think of throwing stones at her for leaving me because I left first to go live in Mexico. But it’s still sad to see her go 😦

However, I have a new place to visit as she is moving to Puerto Rico.!!! And all I can say about that is “Hola Puerto Rico“.!!! I am totally going to visit 🙂 And so in honor of my dear friend’s departure, I decided to give Dos Equis a break and showcase a Puerto Rican rum. Now in all fairness, Bacardi originated in Cuba. But after the Cuban revolution, Bacardi moved its operations to Puerto Rico and the Bahamas so it could continue to do business with the U.S. and Britain respectively. So, in short, it’s living an expat life too.!! The video is called “Untameable” just like my birthday buddy.!! Have a great week.! Enjoy.! Y salud.!!

Tecate takes a holiday

Since this is a long three day weekend celebrating Memorial Day – I thought I would give Tecate the time off..!! I know what you are thinking, “But Rose, this is a 3 day weekend..! We need Tecate more than ever to jumpstart our holiday fun..!” And I agree..!! I have many good friends in town this weekend. Lots of dinner plans, bbqs and tasty beverages to be had..!!

So in its place, I am bringing in a heavy hitter known as Bacardi Rum..!! I think we’ve earned it…we deserve it… This weekend necessitates more than beer. It’s time for rum and cokes and mojitos..!! The Bacadi Masero or Bacardi Waiter commercial has English subtitles, so no need for me to interpret. Enjoy the change of pace..!! Enjoy your weekend..!! SALUD…!!!
