More Fun in June!!

June continued to be as chaotic as May but it was fun and memorable!  PC baseball was over and the final weeks of classes have begun.  It was time to return the Frosh Baseball jersey - wish he could've kept it!

The first weekend of June included an exhausting day of dance pictures!!  It was hot and the studio is small, tons of new moms but at the end of the day, I love seeing my princess all dressed up and in front of the camera!

We took another weekend where there were no commitments and spent the day with my sister-in-law and nieces.  We picked them up and took a ride to New Hope, PA.  This was fun-we walked around the village, checked out many stores from antique stores to a wiccan shop-Fun!

And finally I have another trip to share with you, and that was our trip to Seaside Heights. This was our first time here since hurricane Sandy and wow - it really hits you when you are there in person.  The devastation was terrible to watch on tv, but to see it in person months later was just awful.  A lot has been repaired, but there still is much to do!

 Seaside still brings joy to us all even though there is a lot missing - hope they get everything back up soon!  We drove through the town and saw many homes that were destroyed - I was so shocked with what I saw that I didn't even take any pictures.

Well, June is over, classes are finished, my son failed 2 classes and has to attend summer school :/ so yea - we keep going, living day to day and even though we suffer set backs, we keep going and enjoy all the good things we do have!!!

It's July already - our 4th was uneventful this year but it looks like our July is about to pick up speed!  Hope you all had a great 4th of July!!!

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.
