Weekend Ups & Downs & Fun!!

Finally the weekend.  I've had one hell of a week.  Work has been crazy busy, my life, as usual, is exhausting and my bills are out of control.  I just can't keep up.  At times I feel like I'm suffocating!  So finally the weekend is here and I'm hoping to relax a bit and try to take my mind off of everything.  Saturday started off as usual - I worked out and then hubby made an awesome breakfast for us all.

Then we went to drop off my daughter and her friend at dance class, then we had to go to the barber shop for hubby & my son, and then we had to get oil at Sam's club for hubby & my son to do the oil changes on both of our cars.  Then we get on the conversation about moving and all these changes and I just broke down.....LOL!! I laugh now but I have no idea why I've been so emotional this week.  I know that I don't want to move out of NJ yet because I want my daughter to finish school here, but all I've ever dreamed of was moving to Florida. …

Beauty & The Beast Movie Review!!!

This weekend we went to see Beauty and the Beast.  I've been dying to see this movie since I first saw the trailers.  I have to say it was everything I was expecting and more.
Emma Watson was perfect as Belle, I loved everything about her.  Besides the fact that she looked just like the animated version of Belle, she was relatable and sympathetic. She also did a great job signing, I absolutely loved her musical numbers.

The Beast was also very impressive.  Dan Stevens was also great at portraying the Beast, but his costume was amazing.  It looked so realistic. He really did an amazing job showing his anger and his sadness throughout the movie.

The entire cast was great.  The effects were amazing and the costumes were beautiful, all exactly like the animated version that I love so much.

I have nothing negative to say about the movie.  I would watch it over and over again if I could!  The acting, the action, the costumes and musical performances were all amazing! I especially loved…

NJ is Shut Down!!!

Yes, leave it to mother nature to give us one last surprise before Springtime - another snowstorm!  Stella came in with a vengeance!  20+ inches in the tri-state area and super high winds.
Now that I live on the 9th floor, we really hear the wind.  Its crazy & scary all at once!

I stayed home and it kind of sucked because now I have one less sick day at my disposal.  There was no way I was going out in this blizzard, plus the governor did say that we were in a state of emergency so no non-emergency vehicles were to be out.
Aside from using my sick day, I had no problem staying home today.  I actually feel like I needed it.  I did absolutely NOTHING!  Nothing, nothing, nothing and I loved every second of it.  I made hot chocolate in the morning for my kids, then rented Step Up to watch with baby girl.  We watched Step Up Revolution the last night, so we were in the mood to watch how it all started. After that I watched some youtube, worked out to my 21 Day Fix (can't skip a wor…

Westgate Town Center Resort ~ Review

Last month we stayed at the Westgate Town Center Resort.  I traveled here with my husband and 11-year-old daughter so we rented the Studio.  It was actually a 1 bedroom with a full bathroom/jacuzzi tub, a kitchenette and living room area with a sleeper sofa.  We also had a covered patio overlooking the lake.  

The kitchenette was nice and convenient although I did miss not having a stove.  The decor was a bit outdated and the bed sheets didn't look clean.  They were clean and everything smelled nice, but I think this room, and I imagine other rooms like this one, could use some new linens and some remodeling.  
The property was beautiful.  They offer various activities for guests, but the cost depends on whether you are an owner or a guest.  We were going to stop by the Shipwreck Island water park which looked awesome, but it would have cost us $20 per person, but it would have been free if you were an owner.  There are many other activities, like movies, video games, swan paddle…
