This is my family parting at best!
Make shift Cruzian Bar :)!
Yes I am still in my 20s!! This is the last year I can this. I miss bithdays as a girl....I am a born and raised CRUZAN (from St. Croix US Virgin Islands) and Cruzians can party like no other. For Birthday celebrations my dad would build a little bar (for the adults:) made from palm leaves and wood the handsone devil you see as our bartender is my dad. Cruzians like there Cruzian Rum after all! Then we would roast a pork outside, and have tons of food. Arroz con Gandules (because we are also Puerto Rican) BBQ chicken, stuffing, you name it we got it! EVERYONE was always invited and there was not a go home time on the invites such as 2-4. You came when you want left when you wanted Cruzian time is Island time. Why own a watch?
So now that I am twenty nine and no one will build a bar for me :) I have to party a little different.
I also would never make a huge deal of my kids party, only because I am on a budget! But my cruzian blood in me wants to throw a huge pork roast in the back yard party. I am sure it will scare the neighbors.
Today I celebrate 29 years of being me.....Thanks mom and Pop for celbrating me is such a great way always I will remeber the parties.
