College drop off

This past weekend we dropped our middle son off at college for the summer semester. I am so happy he chose a college 40 minutes from our home and 15 minutes from my job..  He is the 2nd child going away, so this time I was not a basket case.  I guess you could say it gets easier, however, I will miss him dearly because I could always count on him for everything.
I couldn't be prouder of him, for all his accomplishments so far and the right direction he is heading.  I know one day he will be a great psychologist!

My First Lozilu 5K Mud Run

This past April I was invited by a friend to do a mud run. Me?  Run?  With mud involved? Ummm No thank you.  I gave it some thought and said hey what the heck, why not, the worst that could happen is I wont be able to complete it and look like an arse doing so.  It really wasn't as bad as I imagined, it was really really fun and I am so glad I did it.

The Lozilu 5k Mud Run is an all ladies run for a great cause, with proceeds going  to children fighting cancer.  I had to do this run for the children even if it meant my out of shape butt had to run in the mud. All in all it was a great event filled with obstacle course and mud pits. I am looking forward to doing another 5k mud run this fall.

Wedding Link Up


So I thought this link up was so cute...Gosh wow My wedding to Danny will be 16 years on August 16. We got married in 1997.  Wow before facebook, Instagram and  inexpensive digital cameras hence the picture below..

We pretty much had to pay for our wedding ourselves and I think it turned out to be a very nice venue considering we were on a budget.
We got married in a catholic church in our hometown of Perth Amboy NJ
Our reception was in a bar that had a hall in the back called the Broadway Inn.
The colors were lavender & champagne my favorite colors.
We had a best man/maid of honor , matron of honor, flower girl and ring bearer.
We walked in to what should have been our First Dance song and our First Dance song was the song we should have walked into as Mr & Mrs ... the DJ screwed that up. 
Our honeymoon was to the Jersey Shore i.e...Wildwood, Atlantic City and Seaside...I laugh as I type because it was way before the fist pumping started...hahah
All in all it was quaint nice day and I don't regret a single thing about it, I wouldn't change any of it, it was who we were back then.
Looking forward to our 25th wedding Anniversary where I implement Social Media. ha!


Another go at blogging...

Hi There,
Its been a lil while since I posted an entry, but know that I have been reading lots of blogs it can be so addicting..and the more I have been reading blogs the more I am like, hey, I can do this.
It wasn't until I read a popular blog which gave me inspiration as well as amazing tips on creating a blog. 
One particular tip that I was never doing was "Making Time" to post.  If you walked a day in my shoes, you'd probably wonder if I sleep.
My schedule consists of:
6:00am Rise and Shine
7:15am Leave for my 1:15hr commute
8:30am-5:30pm Work Work Work
5:30pm 1hr commute home
6:30pm-9:30 pm baseball practice for my son (who played this spring on a Rec, Travel and now Allstar team) if there is a game even later. But thats another post all together.
10:00pm get home and cleanup and getting things ready for another day.
11:00pm-12am Read blogs
12am Night Night
Some may think I am crazy but a moms gotta work, watch her kid play ball..and all that jazz in between..
Yay I've felt like I "made time"to blog. I can do this...Well thats all for now...

Weekend Review

I just have to share of how proud I am with myself!  The family and I decided to go to the movies to see the Hunger Games on Saturday afternoon, but I was no where near finished with the book, and GOD forbid I went to see the movie prior to finishing it.  So I was rushing against the clock and guess what?  I did it!  I finished that last sentence 44 minutes before sitting in front of the “Big Screen”.  I was so glad that I read before I watched.  Great Movie but even better book!  Now off to begin “Catching Fire”!

Then it was off to baseball.  Nothing like being at a baseball park near Jax Beach, beautiful breeze with a cloudless sky  The joys of living in Florida! To top it all off, a  double win on our double header!  So proud of my son!  “Go Crush”

The hubby and I ended our weekend by relaxing and snuggling with a DVD of The Girl  with a Dragon Tattoo! Great Movie and Great way to end the weekend!

Rules for 5QF: Copy and paste the following questions to your blog post, answer them, then watch for the linky post to appear Friday morning and LINK UP!

1. If you were free to just hop in the car and drive, where would you go? Or, if you could hop a plane and go anywhere, where?

If I were to hop in a car and drive my guess would be that we would take a road trip to see the Grand Canyon and explore all it has to offer.  If I could hop a plane, I would love  to go to Europe.  I have never left the US and would love to indulge in the delicacies another country has to offer.

2. What's your most recently read favorite book?  

Funny you ask, currently I as trying so hard to finish Hunger Games before going to watch the movie tomorrow afternoon with the family.  I know I can do it even if it means not sleeping tonight! hahahah! I only have 166 pages left.

3. What's your favorite Spring Break memory?  

Favorite Spring Break Memory hmmmm well I remember being about 13 or 14 and my grandfather would take me and my bff to Keansburg, NJ and we would go swimming in the pool for hours all while my wonderful grandfather would wait for us. Then the next day he would take us roller skating that was the big thing to do back in the 80's remember that? 

4. What do you put in your child's Easter basket? Or, for those w/o kids, what was put in your childhood basket? 

In the Easter baskets for my kids I always put their recent favorite new release DVD and of course some jelly beans, easter hollow chocolate, and frozen PEEPS for me!  They hate peeps~  I love Frozen peeps!  Anyone ever try that?

5. Do you get a summer haircut?

I was just thinking about this the other day.  I have caramel/blonde highlights and I really really have to re do them.  Just trying to decide whether or not to do natural (dark brown) or continue my highlights.  Its a decision that will have to be thought out.  Cut wise NAAAAA I wanna let it grow..

So there you have it my 5QF!
