5 Question Friday -- 8/3/12

Well, after taking a week off from blogging, I am back with a lot!! Still trying to catch up, but atleast I made time for 5QF!! :)

Here goes:

1. What is a must in a hotel room?
     Refrigerator! I always need one because I have a need to keep snacks &        drinks with us at all times!

2. Which Olympic event would you be best at? 
    None!  I don't have an athletic bone in my body....wish I did, I love gymnastics so that would be it if I were athletic :)

3. What's your stance on the Chick-fil-A subject?
     I don't have a stance on this since I believe in the freedom of speech.  Everyone has a right to their opinion, I have mine which some people may not agree with, but its my right and I would like it respected.  So I am respecting their opinion.

4. One thing you said you'd never do as a parent, but totally have.
    Give my kids more freedom than I had, LOL, yeah like that will ever happen!  I grew up in a Cuban, Catholic home, these families are very strict especially with girls & I always said that I wouldn't be the same.  Well, 20 years later I am finding it extremely difficult to even let my 13yr old son walk to school alone! LOL, I know...I'm an overprotective nut just like my Cuban family!  

5. What's the weirdest thing you've ever found at a yard sale?
    Nothing since I've never been to a yard sale.  I have way too many things to be going to a yard sale and buying more, LOL, I actually need to have a yard sale of my own to eliminate some of my clutter!!

Until next week....bye, bye!!!!

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…
