Dade County Courthouse

One of my favorite buildings in Downtown Miami is the Dade County Courthouse. It's a nice touch of history amongst all the new office and condo buildings being built up in Miami. Although I work as a paralegal, I probably have only been in this building once. It was for jury duty the Monday after I graduated from the University of Miami back in December 2004. Maybe one day I'll get lucky and get to experience a trial here.

Memorial Day!

Wow, I didn't realize how long it had been since my last post, close to a month. Forgive me! I hope you all had a nice, long Memorial Day weekend. Miami weather can be a bastard sometimes, and this weekend it really let us have it with all the rain. I wanted to try to head out and take some shots of the Downtown Miami skyline or Miami Beach during Hip Hop weekend, but with the crazy weather it didn't happen. Luckily, we had a small window of sunshine today and our small BBQ for two went off without a hitch. I thought I would share some of photos of the delicious food that we had today in celebration of Memorial Day. Lenin grilled up some awesome pork spareribs and I prepared some potatoes, corn, and a "No Bake" cheesecake to complete the meal.

The grillmaster himself. I have no idea what it is with guys and grilling. They don't like to cook, but somehow LOVE to grill on the barbeque. If you ask me, that's a form a cooking. (Lenin doesn't like taking pictures and probably isn't thrilled with me posting this shot of him, but let's see if he is actually keeping up with my blog to catch this!)

The final products!

Happy Memorial Day to all! Thoughts and prayers go out to all our soldiers serving our country overseas and to the families of those whom we have lost.
