Favorite Thing!!

While visiting one of my favorite blogs, Mama of All Trades, I saw she was hosting a Favorite Things week and having everyone link up today!  So, why not share one of my favorite things! :)

I have to admit to having a lot of favorites, LOL, but I will narrow it down to two: interests & technology.


There are plenty of things I enjoy like reading, shopping, blogging, but my all time favorite thing is photography.  I've had a love of photography since I was 10-11 years old.  I love taking pictures and going back through old pictures to reminisce.....I love it!!   When I had my kids that love of photography grew even more, and last year for my birthday, my wonderful hubby bought me my first DSLR....I'm still learning how to properly use it and I wish I had the time and money to take up photography courses, but for now I'm just enjoying it!  I try to teach myself by reading articles and photography blogs-I think I do fairly well for a beginner.....


My next category is technology.  We own many different electronics as do many families today, but my favorite is my Ipad.  Another gift from my wonderful hubby & kids, this one was for Christmas!  I never put it down, it goes everywhere with me!!  I use it to keep score at my son's baseball games, use it for pics, twitter, facebook and so much more.  I've loaded it up with all kinds of apps and there isn't a day that goes by that I don't even went on vacation with us, LOL!!

What are your favorite things?  Go on over to Mama of All Trades to check out some other Favorite Things post and link up if you'd like :)

Have a great weekend everyone!!

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…
