2013 Recap

Now that the holidays are somewhat over, I have time to blog.  I thought I'd start with recapping the 2013 year. It's the thing to do in blog land Right? Right! 

Looking back I have to say I had made so many resolutions, none of which I kept. So I am looking forward to beginning 2014 with being happy, getting to know Jesus and putting my self first so I can be there for my family.

 The highlight of the year was the h.s graduation of my middle son Justin.  My parents, my sister and her family came from NJ to celebrate this milestone with us together as a family.  We enjoyed family bonding with love, laughter and a day at St. Augustine.

Proud parents!


2013 was pretty much spent at a baseball field either practices, rec games, All-stars and tournaments. 4 or 5 out of the 7 days, thanks to our left handed baseball player Marcus.  Wouldn't trade  it for nothing in the world.  The joy of seeing him on the mound makes those rushing home from work late- night fast food eating all worth it.

I participated in my very first Mud Run.  It was so much fun and for a great cause.  Looking forward to doing another one soon!

We'll that pretty much sums it up!  Stay tuned to 2014 goals and resolutions.

Weekend Shenanigans

Sami's Shenanigans

 Hey All,

I'm linking up with Sami for what may seem to be the last least for now.

This weekend was a busy one.  My son had a baseball tournament that began on Thursday and ended on Saturday with Championship win!  What a great way to end the Fall Baseball Season.  Way to go boys!

On Sunday I finally was able to decorate my house for Christmas, while watching Christmas movies on ABC Family.  It felt rather weird decorating with the AC on and the temperatures reaching 85 degrees.  That's the Florida life..Where is the cold??? I wanna wear my boots!!!  I will trade places with anyone for one day of snow!!!

Well that was my weekend.  How was yours?

Five on Friday

I can’t believe that Christmas is quickly approaching, only 19 days left, and I have so much to do in so little time. Looking forward to the next few weeks. It’s hard to say we are in December with the crazy Florida weather!

 {One} Doesn’t feel like Christmas is in the Air~ Not with 80 degree weather!

{Two} I am still waiting for my husband to bring down my Christmas Décor. Usually, my house is decked out the weekend of Thanksgiving but this year I am still waiting on him!

 {Three}- A tradition in our home is to watch the “Christmas Story” as a family. I would love to add a few more Christmas Movies.

 {Four]- One of the main reasons we chose to live in Florida is the Baseball Season. Baseball is offered as an all around year sport primarily because of the beautiful weather. As a baseball mom, my nights and weekends consist of being at the baseball park watching my son play or practice a lot.

{Five} Christmas Outfit~ Pinterest. Super cute & Comfy for the Holidays.

 There you have it, my five on Friday!  Happy Holidays!

A few of my favorite items under $100


I decided to link up with Elise for the last "these are a few of my favorite things" under a $100.00 series.

My Items

{ONE} An Ipad case preferably a pink one. I love watching Netflix, that way I can   prop my Ipad just about anywhere.

{Three} A massage:  Who wouldn’t want a massage.  After the hustle & bustle of the holidays this gift can come handy to almost anyone. 

{Four} Keurig – Who ever invented this coffee machine, is a genius. Single Servings+ no grinds=one happy coffee drinker.

Happy Holiday!  Looking forward to your list under $100.00

Weekend Shenanies


Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend and escaped the Black Friday craziness! 

Our Thanksgiving weekend went wonderfully.  My kids were home for the break and we had a "much needed" quality time together.  We ate, laughed, played board games and ate some more.  This went on pretty much all weekend, in between we hit the mall for a bit of shopping.  How was your weekend?  Did you get all of your shopping done?  I didn't!
