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.  I also know that now that hubby does want to move, it won't happen right away and we were just talking but there I was, tears flowing!  I couldn't stop and I really don't know why.  I've been so moody and tired lately, and Saturday I just broke down.  I guess this is what I needed....I just needed a good cry for no apparent reason.  I left hubby and my son at our old house so they can do the oil change on one of the cars, and I headed home to clean and cook dinner.  I cried all the way home, but then turned on my music and got to cleaning.

The boys got home a little while later with the girls, baby girl and her friend that was sleeping over, and we sat down for dinner.  After dinner, we searched for tickets to the Beauty and the Beast movie and luckily we were able to find tickets.  I was so happy and the girls too!!





Sunday was a little bit better, I woke up and hubby was up already so he made us breakfast for us.  More Mickey pancakes, eggs and bacon....yum!!  The girls woke up a bit later so we made them breakfast and then I took them to dance class.  When I got back home I decided to run the treadmill.

After my run, I made my son breakfast and then got on Beachbody on Demand and did my yoga fix from the 21 day fix program.  It was a bit tough and hard for me to relax at first but when I was done, I was so glad I did it.  I felt great!

Hubby was watching Cannonball Run so I joined him.  Soon hubby had to leave to pick up our daughter from dance, so I took a nap and when my son left for work.....I decided to go soak in a hot bath!

But first some coffee.....LOL!  Earlier in the week we had stopped at this bakery in town, Sweets & Cortaditos, and they had this espresso called cortadito bon bon.  It was espresso with condensed milk!  OMG!!!  It was amazing!!
So, I made it at home.  Just what I needed this afternoon, YUM!!!
Ofcourse - a little Disney touch!

Now I'm ready for my bath.  I used the little bit epsom salt I had left, and then used a capful of my aching muscle super soak that I bought while we were in the Bahamas last year.

It was so relaxing!  We watched movies and our regular Sunday TV Shows....and that's how we end our weekend!
I'm feeling relaxed and recharged....ready for another week!

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…
