Daydreaming @ Work :)

First of all-I'm on my lunch time so daydreaming is allowed!
While I sit here, trying to have my lunch, and write in less than 30 minutes, I can't help but think of something my daughter said to me the other day.  She was telling me how she misses me during the day and she liked when I would pick her up from school.  So she asks why can't I do that anymore, to which I reply, I have to work.  The obvious question of "Why?" comes out and I tell her that I need to work in order to do all the fun, extra curricular activities that we all do...especially them with their baseball & dancing.  So, her response was - "Well, since I'm not shy anymore, how about we go outside, put an empty box on the floor & I'll dance! People will see me performing and will leave money in the box!"  Awwwwww, my eyes teared up instantly! My poor baby, LOL!
Oh, how I wish I could just stop working or have something to be able to work from home-then we'll have th…

2nd & Last Day in VA :)

OK, took me long enough but here goes.......

Not sure if I mentioned it earlier, but this was a spur of the moment trip and wasn't really planned until a week prior. That being said, we didn't want to spend a lot on a hotel room so we found the Econo Lodge in Williamsburg for about $50 per night. The hotel room was clean but nothing impressive. No indoor pool and extremely hard beds :( So, we decided to check out Saturday morning-we had 2 nights in these beds and it was horrible! I really missed my bed!

We were up early since we had to go for breakfast and then get to Lee Hall Mansion for the Easter Egg Hunt! My daughter so super excited!! This is her first egg hunt-I do it at home and its just her & her brother but this time it was her & a ton of other kids! We went for breakfast first at the IHop-typical breakfast & in 30 minutes we were at Lee Hall. There were so many other kids and the people there played there parts well-we had stepped back into the mid-Vi…

Embracing the Baseball Life

Well, now that Chris is back on the NJ Buzz, we can't complain about him not having enough games :/  If you haven't noticed yet, our lives changes by the minute....he was off the Buzz 2 weeks ago, we signed him up at the WNY Babe Ruth and 2 days after that he was back on the Buzz-this is really exhausting!
So now I'm left with juggling all these games and practices.  This weekend he has a double header today & tomorrow with the Buzz, and right after tomorrow's Buzz game, he is off to Ridgewood for his 1st game with the Spartans!  Due to all of these games he isn't able to make any of the WNY games, but he'll usually play these during the week.  The only time he'll be able to make a weekend game at WNY will be if there are no Buzz or Spartan games......but it seems that from now until mid-summer we will have baseball every weekend!

Always on the go.....that's how we spend our Springs & Summers!!…

Ultimate Blog Party 2012

This is my first ever Ultimate Blog Party and I'm excited to be a part of it.  My name is Grisel and I've been married for 17 years and have 2 beautiful kids!  We are always on the go due to my son's baseball schedule and just recently my daughter's ballet.  Whenever we have time off we try to take trips, even if its just down to the Jersey Shore!

Here is one of my posts about our last vacation in Florida, we go there a lot, LOL: More Beach & Zoo Trip

Well, that's it for now & I'm hoping to meet new people and read some great blogs during this blog party :)

Good Friday in Virginia Beach

After going to bed at 2am, we were up at 8am this morning :/  I thought I was going to sleep more but I guess the excitement was too much--plus the beds were too hard, not a very comfortable night!  Everyone was up, showered & ready for breakfast by 9:30am, so we went looking for a pancake house.  There are so many pancake houses, my hubby wanted Ihop but I wanted some local place - so I remembered that I saw an ad in one of the guide books for the Old Mill House of Waffles & Pancakes!  My choice today, his tomorrow so off to the Old Mill House of Waffles we went!
We walked in and it felt like walking in to somebody's was cozy, but spacious.  The menu had a large selection, making it very difficult for me to decide!  Eggs? Pancakes? Waffles? Frenchtoast? Omelets? Ugh, so much to choose from!  Laz & the kids new what they wanted right away-Virginia ham with eggs for my hubby & son, my daughter wanted french toast & I finally decided on the malt waffl…
