We're Back!

Monday is almost over, I've spent all day at home and I'm still is that possible? Anyway, our weekend was great, exhausting, but great!

We left NJ at 1:30 and arrived around 7pm, checked in, dropped our luggage in the room and went off to Cici's Pizza for dinner.

We were starving, so we all enjoyed dinner, plus its pizza....who wouldn't enjoy that! We went back to the hotel & decided on some pool time!!

The next morning was brutal, we had to be up at 6:30am. First game was supposed to be at 9, but got pushed to 10 due to all the rain....the fields were still being worked on.

Game finally started and it went well. They could have played better, but it was good. We left for son ate with his team, Triple A Arsenal, and my husband, daughter & me went to Mcdonalds, then back to the field.

Second game was even better! The boys really played hard and came very close to winning. The other team was great, every single one of those boys hit...amazing!

Afterwards, we went back to the hotel and the boys went to the pool for a bit before getting ready for dinner. Dinner took forever!! We went to Outback, but since there were so many of us, it took forever to get everyone seated. Boys sat with their coach, and parents were sat seperately. It was fun, food was was just so late. We got back to the room about 10 and I was exhausted!
Before I knew it, it was morning again.....both these nights have been so short!! Up at 7am and back at the field by 9. This next game was even better than the day before! They won this game, so ofcourse everyone was so excited. Now they only had a 15 minute break before the next game.

The next game begins and all of the kids are exhausted and hurting. My son, who had pitched the 1st game, was on to start this game. Poor kid! His arm hurt, but he did it. He gave 3 innings as best he could, and I for one am very proud of him!! No excuses, he went out there and did what he had to do!

Unfortunately, they lost this game but it was a good tournament and they played their hearts out! We are very proud of each and every one of them.

Now its time for our long ride home. We made a quick stop at Mcdonalds for lunch & bathroom break and off we were. 6 hours later we were home!


  1. I am sorry to hear that they lost. I am not sure who is more heart broken the kids or the parents seeing the kids disappointed. Next year it will happen for sure. Thank you for stopping by and following my blog. I look forward to checking out more of your posts.

    Happy Friday!


  2. Sounds like an exhausting day and trip. I still have lots of family in Hudson County and I so miss Bravo and Bergenline Ave. I totally hate the new speed bumps all over the place in WNY I almost ate it, none of my family told me about em :/ You have a lovely family.

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…

New Week~New Program

Here we go!!  I took a week off to regroup and decide what to do next.  I really have to say that having Beach Body on Demand is the BEST!!!

There are so many programs and nutrition plans to follow.  So since I recently completed Transform 20, I was thinking of doing it again, but I've been curious about 80 Day Obsession for quite some time.  I haven't attempted this program because at first, I felt it wasn't for me.  The workouts are longer than I'm used to and the timed nutrition is challenging for me, but I finally let curiosity get the best of me.  I'm going to give it a shot!

I started Sunday with my meal prep!  I was a bit overwhelmed at first, but I followed the sample nutrition plan and was able to get my shopping list and meals put together.

So for my first week, I have every meal planned out.  Not prepared, since I'd rather make my eggs for breakfast fresh each morning.  Most of my meals have been prepped!

My days are set to begin at 4:30AM with my sh…

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.
