Off we go to the Acuario

Last weekend Brad and I ventured to Dallas (with his parents in tow) to celebrate our engagement and spend some quality time with the familia. As a part of the weekend, we decided to take a trip to Dallas' little known gem, the Dallas Aquarium. Neither Brad nor his parents nor my mom had ever been and I was dying to go back since they finished their reconstruction. Needless to say, it completely exceeded our expectations. Here are a few pictures of our ramblings through Dallas' own "rainforest"...

Hard to believe this is indoors...

Super cute Marmoset!

All I kept thinking was "Never smile at a crocodile, Never tip your hat
and start to talk awhile..."


Crouching Howler (no hidden dragon though, at least to our knowledge)

Brad and I al fresco pero adentro

Ginormous crab!!

It's almost like he's saying "Mr. Demille I'm ready for my close up"

Thank G-d there's glass between us

My favorite part Brad wouldn't let me take him home though!
I told him that he could live in our swimming pool :) Still no dice

All in all it was great day. We got to see some beautiful creatures and walk a lot. Later on that night the familia met up for dinner to celebrate our engagement and make plans for the future. And today as I write this post I'm so fortunate to be celebrating our one month anniversary of being engaged. Until next time, Peace, love, and positivity!

About Me

For those of you who know me, writing has always been one of my passions, with the exception of my Masters or any ridiculously long testament within the wide world of Academia. I've only had the pleasure of blogging a couple of times, mostly for a few classes in graduate school, but figured it was time to organize my numerous thoughts and musings with all of you out there in cyber land. I created this page because my mind is always running and often times my thoughts get lost in the hubub. Plus, my friends have always said that I'm a great storyteller, so I'd love to share them now with you. In the meantime, I'll leave you with this... Throughout the past 33 years of my life I've seen, heard, and experienced so many different things as well as had many adventures and dream of so many possibilities. But in short, what it comes down to is this..I'm just a little Jubana trying to make a difference in the world. Everyday I live my life to the fullest and have fun doing it. Life can't always be about work or how much money you make. There's so much more to life than that.
