Such a Slacker

Wow I miss blogging.
Costa Rica
What an amazing adventure. It was everything I hoped it would be. A carefree week in a new place. I fell in love with it immediately. Maybe it's that hispanic blood in me, I have always loved my culture but I have never been able to experience full force like that. The people are so kind and content with life. I loved feeling like I lived in a world where people aren't always looking for the next best thing.

Arenal Volcano

So many bugs, that is one thing I do not miss.

I love the wild Life. We saw all of these just right outside of our beach house.

The monkeys were the best, just chillin eating from the fruit tree.

I had to have my Costa Rican crush.
Jerson my tour guide on the zipline and horseback riding.
I hope to visit him again someday :)

The amazing veiw from our porch. It was paradise... something you see on a postcard. I want to go back.

So many fun nights out dancing with the girls and meeting new people. I had never been out of the country before and I now realize the coolest thing is that you meet people from all over the world.

I got to celebrate my 22nd birthday there. I had a cake and happy birthday sang to me for breakfast, lunch, and dinner! I was one spoiled girl.

The beaches were a lot of fun. We went to a surfer town so the actual beach wasn't breath taking like some Costa Rican beaches. But it was still a lot of fun. It was the start of rainy season when we  got there so there was a lot of run off that made the water not as pretty. So if you are looking for a paradise beach when you go there don't go during rainy season. I had no problem with it at all though. We were in the water while it was raining at times and it was such a blast!
The entire beach was lined with coconut trees it was beautiful!

The trip was amazing. I left out so many details and experiences that I will never forget. I am so grateful that out of nowhere I got the opportunity to tag along with these girls. They were a lot of fun and I have made some new friends thats for sure!

Many more post to come. I have a LOT of catching up to do.....
Happy Summer Nights :)

So Much

I have so much to blog about I don't even know where to begin. I guess I will start with the most important thing. I have a new nephew!!!!! On my way home from Costa Rica I found out my sisters water broke 5 weeks early. So I am hoping to get home in time but then I got stuck in the airport all night :(  I managed to make it to the hospital at 3 in the morning 5 mins. after she had the baby.
                                                    Isaiah Dennis Baranowsky, 5lbs 6oz.

 Both mom and baby are doing great. They only had to stay a few days in the hospital and now they are back home. I am so happy for them. He is just the most precious little guy and so sweet.
He kept one eye open when i was there a lot it was so funny.

I will be blogging about my Costa Rica trip soon, I had the time of my life. I am truly so happy with life right now. I am done being sad I have so much to be happy about. I am so truly blessed with the most amazing friends and family and I couldn't ask for more right now.
