What a Wonderful Saturday

Today was great, it was an all around great day.  I slept like crap last night and woke up way to early today.  Once I got up I talked to my sister and we agreed to meet for breakfast.  This is one of my favorite Saturday traditions.  I love having breakfast with my favorite people. 

Breakfast was so yummy and I got to sit next to my girl.  She ate so good this morning. 

My Movie Star! by you.


Hi! by you.


When we left Cookie’s Pete and I were heading to Wegman’s to grocery shopping and Laura and Brandon were going to visit his Grandfather.  Poor Alyssa was so so so sad that she wasn’t going with Pete and I.  She tried to get into our car and then cried when she had to get in Laura’s car.  Poor Girl.

Pete fell in love with Wegman’s.  I was pretty impressed myself.  I always think about going there, but with it being a good 30-35 minutes away we never do.  Well today he informed me that we are shopping there atleast every two weeks.  LOL  We got some great deals.  We also bought some stuff for our cook out tomorrow.  Well Laura’s cook out.  We have a pork shoulder in the crock pot almost ready to be shredded for Pork BBQ and stiff for cucumber salad.  I also bought everything I needed to make a HUGE batch of brownies for the graduation party we are going to next weekend.  It was a good haul all around.

Once we got home we put all of the groceries away and headed back out to get some beer.  Pete has been wanting to try some kind…It all tastes the same to me.  I cooked on the grill for lunch then Pete ran to the local Superfresh aka “Ghetto Fresh” to get some things we had forgotten.  We also caught up on some of our shows from this week.

After watching “In Plain Sight” we went and picked Alyssa up and we headed off to Rita’s for some desert.  She is the best.  I swear I have never imagined loving someone as much as I love her!

When we got back to my sister’s she was watering the garden and Alyssa had the very best time playing with the hose…..SOOOO funny!  We let her play for 20 minutes or so then stuck her in the bathtub!  We all played for about another 30 minutes before Pete and I headed home.

On the way home we both talked about what a great day we had today.  I was go glad Pete didn’t go into work today!  I loved my day with him!

I Hate Cancer

I read OhAmanda everyday, she is funny and witty and loves Disney (see the connection).  Today I sat at the computer bawling my eyes out.  This is her Post!  Go Check it out. 

I miss my Mom sooo much.  May is so hard, Mother’s Day, My Birthday (Spending the day you were born with out the person who gave birth to you is just plain misserable) and the day she passed away, all in that order! 

Love you Mom!

I love the way she is looking at me….she loved me so very much!

My Sister’s birthday was today.  I still can’t believe we are getting so old.  We went to Laura’s and had a great birthday dinner. We had Cake and played with Alyssa.  It was a great night!

Dancing Queen

Alyssa loves to bee-bop!  Shanking her head is one of her favorite dances.  She also likes to spin in circles (Crazy Girl)….Here is a head shaker for you all to enjoy!  Hopefully we can get the spinning recorded too.  She makes me smile everyday!

Princess & The Frog

I am so excited about this…..I love the Disney Hand Drawn movies, The Little Mermaid, Lion King & Beauty & The Beast are my favorites.  I hope this new movie stands up to the hype!

Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day is usually so sad for me.  This was my 5th Mother’s Day with out my mom.  I remember the last one I shared with her, she was so very sick and bedridden.  I was just so hapy to be there with her!  I got her new sheets as a gift that year.  They were the sheets that were on her bed when she died.  Isn’t it wierd the stuff that sticks!

This Mother’s Day was wonderful.  I spent it with my two favorite people; Alyssa and Pete!  Here are a few pictures of us getting ready to head to brunch.

After brunch we went to Laura’s Fire Station so Alyssa could visit with her Mommy on Mother’s Day.  We stayed about an hour and a half.  On the way  home Alyssa fell asleep, Pete and I tried our best to keep her awake until we got home so she would nap properly, but she passed out on us.

Once home She and I snuggled up on the sofa for a good hour, or hour and a half.  She napped and I watched Schinler’s List.  When she woke up she wanted “Gaba Gaba” on so then we watched Yo Gabba Gabba and played for a few more ours until her Daddy came to pick her up!

“Enough Pictures Aunt Lisie!”


Just a few things I have noticed and wanted to write down…..

  • Imitation is the most sincere form of flattery, but sometimes is just a little scary and or sad.
  • Some people act younger as they get older….GROW UP.
  • Rain Sucks, I am sick of it.
  • Friends can always be counted on for a smile.
  • I could not live without my TiVo.
  • You just don’t know some people, you may think you do, but you don’t.
  • Why don’t ugly people wear makeup?
  • Take what life hands you and make the best of it.
  • Nothing is better then a 1.5 year old laughing while you chase her through out the house….don’t ever catch her, it makes her cry.
  • Printer Toner Smell makes me slightly ill!

These are just a few random tidbits I have rolling around in my head while I am trying to get some cases filed….Oh the Joy!
