Almost over!

Well, it is Sunday already.  We didn't do anything interesting at all and the weather has been a bit crazy.  It's nice 1 minute and then its freezing....I can't win!  Yesterday the temperature was 55 degrees, so we went to the flea market to walk around....what a disaster!! It was super windy, my daughter's hoodie kept coming off and her hair was blowing all over the place, as was mine.  What's worse is that there were many vendors that didn't even show up, so there were more people selling their old stuff than there were people selling new stuff! The stand with the churros wasn't even there :/ big dissapointment!!

I spent the rest of the day at home, scanning old pics to preserve them in my hard drive.  This is very time consuming and I went to bed at 11:30 pm, after having 3 Malibu Bay breezes.....buying that malibu rum may have been a mistake...LOL!

Now this morning I had to be up at 7am to get my son & husband up since my son had baseball practice at 8am.  His team is preparing for their Virginia tournament which is in 3 weeks.....can't wait, we are so excited!! I wasn't excited about being up at 7am on a Sunday, so after they left I attempted to go back to sleep but ofcourse, my daughter decides she wants to get up....NOW!  She wants milk & pancakes!! Thankfully, I had picked up a tip from a friend about freezing pancakes, so I had made some yesterday & froze the left overs.  All I had to do was heat up 2 of the frozen ones....great tip, very easy & quick breakfast today :-D

The rest of my day will probably consist of sitting here & doing nothing, except for coming up with ideas for lunch & dinner, which I haven't had any luck with yet.  Getting tired of the same old things, plus my hubby & I are dieting so we need to find healthy but filling meals that we like.  Tried mashed cauliflower the other day & it wasn't a success! 

Any meal ideas would be greatly appreciated....LOL, until next time!!

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…
