My weekend started off very quiet, and I lay in bed on Friday night just reading a book.. which was awesome and much-needed. I also watched a Full House marathon and some Sex and the City.. good night, I think. I'm proud of myself for tweeting this weekend (because for some reason, I always forget to.. whoops!) But I just wanna throw this one out there:

But Saturday is when all the shenanigans unfolded.. My best friend K and her two siblings decided to throw a booze cruise for their birthdays. If you don't know what a booze cruise is, you haven't lived. It's essentially a huge party boat with lots of booze and we cruise around the island. Yep, pretty self-explanatory, no? Well, if you want to picture what this particular booze cruise looked like, then think all of my favorite people on a boat in the middle of the ocean with a DJ and amazing weather, and 5 huge bottles of Puncheon and Malibu mixed (read: the most lethal combination ever..) and then just try to picture my state.
Let's put some booze in this cruise

(...and that we did!) Need evidence, you say..? Look no further!
L, myself and K - obviously pre-party!
As if my legs weren't already hurting from dancing all day, I conveniently signed up for a Color Run the next morning. It's not exactly like the color runs they have in the US, because this one was a little smaller and put on by a charity to raise awareness for a cause they'll be promoting for the rest of the year. I wasn't too pleased about the 7am start time, and my

The charity was called "It's for the kids", which we quickly made our tag line for the day.. we literally ran down the road throwing paint at each other shouting DO IT FOR THE KIIIIIDSSSSS! Needless to say, we were not actually racing.. haha great 5K, huh?! By 8am, I was literally soaked in every color possible. Please, look for yourself:
I have paint in places paint should never be.. #thatwascolorful #colorrun2013 — caroline ♡ (@caromarie217) August 4, 2013I mean, you would think that after that I'd had enough? Nope.. I went home, took an hour-long shower (I'm not even kidding - the paint would NOT come off!) and then we headed to the beach.. because what else do you do when you live in the Caribbean?
After getting some fresh air and eating some shark and bake (and I know none of y'all have ever heard of shark and bake, but it's fried shark, and fried dough that makes bake - and you put any condiment you could imagine on it and it is essentially the best food ever created in life! Even the Culinary Institute of America thinks so!) And I think this finally cured my 'headache' and I was good to go.
On our way back, we stopped at the "lookout" to take a get some snacks for the ride back, and snapped some photos of the view of the coastline.
I got home, slept for three hours and then watched the Kardashians and all their over-dramatic family drama that I love, and today I can't walk or feel my back. I blame the 5K, my sister blames the alcohol. It's always the alcohol..
So, there was my weekend. I'm gonna list my shenanigans, mingle and gossip a little bit, and hope you decide to join in too!
