We're Going to the Bahamas!!!

So the day has arrived, we are at the airport waiting for our time to board our flight to the Bahamas!!  So exciting!!  I finished packing late last night, and oh boy, what a struggle!  I didn't want to overpack but how do I know what I want to wear each day for the next 5 days - not an easy task for me!  I'll have more on that after my vacation so I can tell you if I wore everything and did a good job packing or over packed, as usual.

We left the house a bit before 6am because, just our luck, it started snowing in the early morning.  Oh and we couldn't check in online so I was freaking out that there was a problem with our passports....ugh.  So, I woke up my kids to say goodbye, I cried & baby girl was also crying but doing a very good job at trying to keep it in...LOL!  I wasn't as successful.  I think I cried all the way to the airport, and still feel a bit emotional now.  This is my first trip without them....so yea, I am missing them!  As much as I know that we need this getaway without the kids, I really do wish they were here.  Well....guess this is a perfect excuse to plan the next Bahamas getaway - with the kids.

We got in, were able to check in at the help desk with no issues - breezed through security and got our breakfast!!  Now to wait!  We'll be boarding in a little while and 3 hours later we'll be on a sunny island, Can't wait!!!

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…
