Christmas very late edition with some good and old New Year resolution…does it work? It doesn’t for me at all…my disrupted wonderland of broken promises.

16 Jan

I must admit, I am not very good with New Year resolutions…I mean I always mean to keep my word and go for it, but it doesn’t work very well. My last year resolution was to write a recipe book (as you can see in a post I published one year ago)

https://annainherwonderland.com/2012/01/19/recipe-books-and-lifestyle-resolution-whats-going-on-in-my-wonderland/

But the idea got abandoned after my lack of culinary order, I wrote a few recipes and stored them on my laptop but my problem is, I hate follow recipes when I cook because I like to be creative ad change things around…so with this problem I can’t even follow my own recipes and stick with it…LAST YEAR RESOLUTION result: FAILED.

Another last year resolution was to join the gym and go for it: I did join the gym, I did enjoy, I did get back pain and muscle aching, I did go at least twice a week (for 4 or 5 months), but with the new wedding planning business going on and all the traveling…I haven’t put my foot there since end of October, I actually have frozen my membership temporarily  with the aim of starting again in February… LAST YEAR RESOLUTION result: FAILED, AGAIN.

So as you can see I am not very good to keep my own promises but what is the good thing about Christmas and new year (excluding the presents, the industrial quantity of food and drinks eaten and drunk, the few pound put on and the traveling)? The fact that everyone feels more positive to have a new start, even if it doesn’t happen.

As today, I am happy to face the new year with my new gorgeous Louis Vuitton handbag, the Petit Noe’ (thanks to my amazing husband). 2013…the world is ours!

Still living the American dream…or shall I say the Hispanic dream? Back in cold England but still with my soul in Miami!

12 Jan

Hello readers,

I am really sorry to not have updated the blog for nearly two weeks and first of all I wanted to apologize, unfortunately I was in Miami trying to get our perfect house sorted and the neighbours not always were that happy to give us their internet details, what can we do about? Get the internet sorted…as we did!!

First day back home and I feel like I have a massive hangover and I don’t feel like I even know my name right now, I want to leave forever in Eastern time!

Here we are some pictures of the two long weeks away…I am still trying to learn some Spanish but I think I will need to practise a lot more…a mix of Italian-spanish-english is not the way forward!

Dining out, drinking with friends, new car, donkeys…that’s what happened in a weekend in wonderland!

26 Feb

I had a great weekend; everything happened for a reason and let’s talk about…maybe in pictures it’s going to be easier at the moment due to my hangover spelling problems!

Friday night, dinner out with friends to a very nice Thai restaurant…which my husband thought to have booked the table but he did actually book the wrong one!  We managed to eat to the one we wanted anyway. Next time I will book the restaurant!

Saturday, lot of driving around and despite the diet we stopped to McDonalds for lunch to get something quickly and carry on…diet will start again tomorrow sorry about that!

Stopped to an Audi showroom to look at cars…ended up ordering my new car, so exciting and so happy!!!

Running late we met up with friends for drinks and dinner, amazing combination but…shame when at 2am you throw up everything!

Everything happens for a reason…I will drink less next time!!!

Sunday…hangover, headache, and gardening. I’m smoky right now…thanks to the bonfire!

Went for a spin in the countryside…and saw some donkeys in a field…so my husband took his chance to see how similar we look…right I am a donkey then!!

Key largo, Miami, Downtown, New Year’s eve, Poweboating…I Have too much to say!!!

Hello everyone,

I’m so sorry about not posting yesterday, I tried to, but at 9.30pm eastern time I was already asleep so I couldn’t do the blog, it doesn’t help the fact I haven’t got internet connection anymore in the condo!

We had an amazing new year’s eve, we had a very good meal at home (my husband cooked everything and it was so good!!!) , we went out walking up and down ocean drive that it was packed in a crazy way, thanks to the concert on the beach with Jason Derulo, Cee lo green and Gym class heroes!!

Yesterday was boating a lot, and today it was the same, we tried twice to go to Bimini (Bahamas) yesterday and today but half way I had a panic attack, too bumpy for me…so we ended up to go to Finnegans on the Miami river yesterday and down to gilbert’s in key largo today…it was good but now I’m kind of glad the boat is going back to Ft Lauderdale and we are going to Barbados in 2 days!!!!!  I’ll show you some pictures of the last few days…love you all and thanks for your support!!!

Happy new year to everyone…while boating in paradise!

31 Dec

I want to wish to everyone an amazing happy new year, with lots of love.
We are still here in Miami, been up and down on the flat calm ocean and tomorrow to celebrate the new year we are going to go to Bahamas….

The fabulous life of Anna in her wonderland!!!

With love

Living the American dream…a la Miami Vice… (With a bit of dizziness)

31 Dec

Hello everyone,

What a long and amazing day we had today! Been boating from Ft Lauderdale to South Beach on my husband’s boat…I’m still scared of the speed because I feel dizzy when the jump out of the water…but it was good, perfect sunshine, not too hot, not too cold…just great!

But shall I step back 24hours? Last night we went to our favourite local restaurant, Barceloneta in Purdy Avenue and the dinner was too good to be true! Gazpacho bloody mary, chorizo cooked in cider, langoustine in chocolate and tomatoes, risotto with sausage and mushrooms…and probably something else…Oh my I’m going to be so fat when we go back home! Stopped in Publix for a few bits and off to sleep, the jet lag is still affecting us a lot!

So Today it was a Donzi day, left the rental car and we got the boat…it was so good drive around South Beach and going up at down (at maximum speed 69 miles per hours…it was too bumpy if it was quicker for me!), and it was great see so close what I normally see from the balcony, downtown, the obelisk…we love Miami so much!!!!

Well. It’s the 30th December, at least here with the Eastern Time…so…if I don’t post tomorrow, happy New Year to everyone!!!!

With love
