Madagascar 3

This weekend was kind of uneventful.  My daughter was the planner of the house this weekend and spent all week planning a movie outing with her BFF, Victoria!! These girls....SMH....only 6 years old and already making plans to hang out with each other.  Anyway, she came to me with her big blue eyes, asking if I would take her to see Madagascar 3 this weekend with her BFF, LOL!! So I texted her BFF's mom and we agreed to meet on Sunday at 10am!  I always prefer this time since the theater is empty, or so I thought.  I didn't realize that this was the opening weekend, so fortunately, I was there early.  We got our tickets, soda, slushy & popcorn and headed inside to grab our seats.  10 minutes after sitting down, people began arriving....I have never seen this theater get so full at 10:30 in the morning!! Wow!!!

So after 20-30 minutes of waiting, since we were there early, the movie begins.  Now I'm not a big fan of the Madagascar movies....actually I can't remember watching them at all!  I've seen bits & pieces but it was never a movie I sat down to watch from beginning to end.  With that said, I wasn't expecting much and I thought I would be bored but I actually enjoyed it!  It was funny, so colorful and the music was great.  Kids were laughing, dancing & singing along! My daughter enjoyed every second of it!!

I'm really glad that my baby girl planned this little play/movie date....it was fun and since school is almost over, it was nice for her to spend some time with her friend who she probably won't see again until September.

I absolutely recommend this movie, it had my daughter's attention for the entire time & that doesn't happen often!!

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.


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…
