Let the weekend begin!

It's early, Saturday morning and I'm trying to find the motivation to get on the treadmill to log in atleast 1 mile.  I have to, my weight loss is going great so I can't stop now.  Today is going to be tough on my dedication to my diet!  We have my niece's birthday party, so I'll be surrounded by cake & snacks and who knows what else!!!  I'll have to say NO to everything unless its low or no carb!! How depressing! Although, looking at my weight go down everyday isn't depressing at all......I'll be ready for summer in no time :-D

It feels like its freezing outside, but we'll be braving the cold.  My daughter and son are both very excited to be going to their cousin's house.  They haven't been there in a long time, so yeah, they are ecstatic!!!

So my day will go a little like this: treadmill for 20-30 minutes, breakfast, shower, dress my daughter, dress my self, tell my son to shower when he gets home from baseball, we should all be ready by then, go buy a b-day gift, and head over to Spotswood!

I may not have time to think about vacations or Disney today :(  Which by the way, its all I've been thinking about since watching the live webcast of the Disney Dream Christening event.  I even got to see a reporter's video clip on the Disney dream.  Now I have to save money to get passports for all of us, since none of us has one, then find a date to take a 3 or 4 night cruise to the Bahamas on the Disney Dream---it looks AMAZING!!! I've never been on a cruise & I'm hoping to take my first one with Disney! Yes! I am a disney fanatic....LOL!!!

As soon as hubby gets his vacation dates approved, we will begin planning our trip to Walt Disney World!! The goal this year, is to surprise the kids and go during the Christmas holiday season! We usually go during Spring or Summer, this will be a first for Fall/Winter.  I'm hoping to go the week after Thanksgiving, I can't wait!!!

Taking a Detour!!!!

So we are up & out of my dad's house by 7am.  It was hard and I tried to leave quickly, my poor baby girl even cried-I felt soooo bad for her.  Usually I'm the only one crying, but she really didn't want to leave :(  So,  we said goodbye-hope to be back soon (permanently) and we drove off!
About an hour out, we stopped for breakfast and had to practically make a run for it, LOL! There were like 20 buses full of kids!! By the time we got inside, the Dunkin Doughnuts line was like a mile long-ugh, there goes my coffee!  So we had no other choice but to eat burgers at Wendy's, everything else had super long lines that we didn't want to wait on!
We grabbed our burgers and left.  A little while later Laz asks me if I want to stop at Clearwater Aquarium.  At this point, I'm not 100% sure-I was sad about leaving & felt like just being home to calculate & come up with good, concrete reasons to move to Florida.  On the other hand, I really wasn't looking…

Weekend Trip to Niagara Falls, Canada~Part 2

Here is our 2nd day in Niagara Falls.  We started our morning with breakfast in the hotel restaurant.  After breakfast we headed over to Marineland.  This park was nothing spectacular, but it was a nice little trip.  We saw a dolphin show, saw several other animals, killer whales, fed Beluga whales and rode 1 or 2 rides.  Again, nothing spectacular but it was fun.  A lot of walking, and our favorite part was feeding the beluga whales - they were so cute!
The dolphin show was also fun!  Its been a long time since we've seen dolphins in action.

After all the walking, we were run down and hungry.  We headed back to the hotel to shower and prepare for our dinner at Massimmo's Italian restaurant.  The view was beautiful!  I enjoyed dinner, but hubby and baby girl didn't.  I like to try new things and unfortunately the other 2 don't - and there wasn't much on the menu that they liked.  Baby girl had Ceasar Salad, hubby had Minestrone soup and I had Linguine Carbonara.

Cooking Corner: Cookbook Challenge Day 1

Hi everyone!  I'm starting April with a little challenge for myself.  You are all welcome to join if you choose.  I have a rather large collection of recipes that I've never tried and since I started to declutter my life of things I don't need, this is one area that needs help. What do I need so many cookbooks and binders of recipes for? I don't know - it just takes up space and it's another thing for me to clean.  So, I decided that if I can't find good recipes that we love, there is no point in keeping the book or recipe.  I attempted this challenge a few years ago but never followed through.  This time, I intend to stick with it.
Here's my challenge:
Pick a book a month and try some recipes.
Decide what we like and what we don't.
If I have at least 15 recipes that we like, the book stays.  If not, I'll just copy the few recipes we liked and get rid of the book.
Not sure what I'll do with the book yet.  I'll figure it out at the end of th…
