Our Bahamas Getaway~Part 2

I'm back with more about our Bahamas Getaway......
The next morning was Sunday, and we were up early again.  The beach is sooooo beautiful and peaceful, I was so glad we were up early to enjoy it.
I was also happy because there was a storm coming and we were able to get some nice fresh, beach air before the storm reached us.
We also got lots of pictures!

After our walk and taking pictures, we went back up to our room to change for the gym.....and took more pictures of the resort as we walked.

Our view.....not terrible, much better than the first view we had.

The walk to the gym is a workout in was really far!  But, I did enjoy walking around and seeing so much of the resort.

Finally made to burn off some calories....

Now to eat......

and then on the hunt for a hot tub!

We found one......

It was really windy, the palm tree right by us looked like it would snap any minute....

Eventually, we had enough of the hot tub so we went back to our rooms to change.

Came back down to have lunch and explore some more...

Had some drinks and lunch at a spot across the street

 Then back to the resort to look around some more.....

Eventually we got tired and it was time for us to shower and get all dressed up again for our dinner.

Tonight we would be enjoying our meal at Seafire Steakhouse

Everything was delicious, and I normally don't eat steaks at restaurants but this was amazing!

Dessert was absolutely delicious!!!

Then we walked some more before calling it a night!

That's all for now....plenty of pictures for everyone to enjoy!

My last post will have the end of our getaway.....lots more pictures to come!

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…
