Wonderful Weekend

I had such a fabulous weekend! Friday night I had a great dinner at my sisters, she is really becoming a good cook!  Saturday I went to Pennsylvania to visit Nikki and Ryleah and took Crystal, Dakoda and Alyssa with me.  Saturday night my boy took me out to dinner and then we visited Jason at work and Sunday we cleaned, cut the grass, visited Laura and Alyssa and saw UP!  Woah….I soo need a weekend to recover from my weekend.

Saturday morning Pete and I met Alyssa and Brandon at our normal breakfast place and had a wonderful breakfast, with the good waitress, not the miserable “C U Next Tuesday”!  (LOL  I just heard that saying and been wanting to use it….LOL)  Then we went home and picked up Dakoda and Crystal and headed up to PA!  The kids were so good playing in the car.  That Alyssa….She kept waking Dakoda up when he fell asleep and then would laugh so loud.  LOL

We stopped at a road side stand for produce before getting to Nikki’s.  Oh how I love my roadside produce stands.

Once we got to Nikki’s we covered the kids in sunblock and headed out for some pool fun!  Alyssa was in awe of all of Ryleah’s toys.  I had to drag her outside!

Here are a few (well maybe a few more then a few) pictures I took on Saturday.

Remember When?

I saw this fun little activity on my friend Lisanne’s Blog a little while ago and thought that it would make a neat blog entry to steal.

“If you read this, even if we don’t speak often, post a comment with a memory of you and I. It can be anything you want, either good or bad. When you’re finished, post this paragraph on your own blog and you’ll be surprised at what people remember about you.”

Squeaky Shoes

Last night we were leaving my sister’s house and Brandon went to put on his Sneakers.  They had been sitting outside while Laura and him were camping.  Well he went to slip it on and felt something in it….A MOUSE!  Well now a dead squished Mouse!  LOL  He was sooo freaked out and Laura, Pete and I almost pee’ed our pants.  We called him Mouse Killer all night.  We even had Alyssa saying  “ewe!”.  It was Pretty Gross.  Brandon ripped his socks off and ran inside to scrub his foot.  There was even some Blood on the sock!  YUK!!!

Table for Two

Alyssa at Breakfast!

On the days that Laura and Brandon both work I wake up at 5:20am and go to Laura’s house to get ALyssa up, Fed, Dressed and to take her to Day Care.  This morning Alyssa woke up sooo early.  Like 6:15am.  (Most Likely from all the damn banging her Mother was doing in the kitchen at the butt crack of dawn!!)  This is when I am usually getting an extra hour of sleep, not today (Yawn!).  We snuggled in bed for a while then got up and got dressed for the day.  It was still only 7:10am so we walked a block down to a little neighborhood resurant to have breakfast!  Alyssa LOVES to eat out, LOVES IT!  Who I am I to deny her a good breakfast.  She ate two pancakes and 1.5 sausages.  Little porker!  LOL  after breakfast I took her to day care, but she was tired and clingy.  It makes it so hard to leave her.  She snuggled up in my neck and I held her a few minutes.  She didn’t cry when I left, but I am hoping she didn’t cry once she discovered I had snuck out.  LOL  I love this little lady so much.  I can not wait to pick her up tonight!  The happiness in her eyes when I walk in after work makes up for a long week!

Weekend Over…

The Weekend is over, well it was over yesterday! Why does it have to go by so fast!

Sunday I worked on my Wedding Video for HOURS! But before that we went to Target, Staples, Superfresh and the best Chinese food place in the world!

The weather was so nice it wasn’t a bother to be out and about. I am glad we got all of his stuff done. I hate when we run out of everything at the same time.

I have tweaked a few more things in the Video, changed a song added a picture slideshow and credits….I love it. I can not stop watching it.

My Wedding Day was beyond perfect! I had some nay sayers telling me to got get my hopes up, something will go wrong, etc, etc, etc! But nothing did. I have lovely weather, great hair, an excited groom! The whole day was just what I imagined! I am sad that I have to wait 10 or 15 years to do it again. Oh yeah we are sooo having a Disney Vow Renewal!

I miss my favorite girls. Laura and Alyssa are in Ocean City until tomorrow and I can not wait to see them. Even Pete is missing our girl. She is the light in our lives. I feel sorry for people who do not know this joy! She is so funny and sweet and loving. She makes my life complete!

Well I better get back to work!

Oh but first Happy Happy Birthday to Michele!

Michele & Lisa on Assateague Island

Go Wish her the best!

Saturday – No Rest – Lots of Fun

Weekends are always so busy for the working people!  I would LOVE to be able to go to Sam’s Club on a Tuesday Morning, by I need to work to have money to spend at Sam’s Club!  LOL

Yesterday my boy and I had a great day.  We laid around in bed until almost 11am before  we got up, showered and headed to breakfast!  Our goal was to to to Breakfast and then buy some food….We were all out….100% out!

We had a great Breakfast at Cookies (of Course) where we had our favorite waitress and not the other lady (mean hag) who works there.  After breakfast we wanted to go to the Farmer’s market, BUT it ended at 12 and we didn’t get there until after 12:30!  LOL 

We headed home to get our reusable shopping bags (why oh why does Sam’s boxes suck now!).  We also needed to pick up the Sam’s Club card.  We shopped at Sam’s and did good.  We only bought Alyssa two outfits and a pack of three umbrellas for our selves.  All of this damn rain we have been having is driving us nuts!

We also bought Meat!  Lots of Meat!  We spent $150 at Sam’s.  Have you ever noticed that everything cost $10 at Sam’s Club.  It you count your number of Items and times them by 10 you will get a round about idea how much you will spend.  We had 17 items and Spent $150.  We had a few low cost items like Milk and Bread, but it was pretty close!

We took home out food and put it all away….My fridge looks like  a butcher shop.  LOL

Then we decided to drive to PA.  There is a store near Nikki’s with great prices.  We took a cooler to keep things cold, but we should have taken the big cooler.  We spent $85 in D&K and got soooo much stuff.  We filled out cooler, actually we had to take frozen items like Breakfast Sandwiches and Sausage out of their boxes to make everything fit!

We met Nikki and Ryleah for dinner.  OMG that child Talks Talks Talks.  LOL  She is the best.  She invited us back to her house to play some games.  We didn’t stay long, Pete drooled over their TV (I know we will be buying a flat screen sooner then later) and looked at Jason’s guns while Ryleah and I played Don’t break the Ice and Monkey’s in a Barrel.  I also read to her.  It was fun.  I love spending time with “my Kids”.  

We stopped for Ice Cream at Handles on the way home.  I love that they have Frozen Yogurt for those of us who can not at Ice Cream.  Pete loved it too.  

It was such a good day.  I was sad that we were not going to Ocean City with the rest of my family, but I made the best of the Saturday and  Pete and I enjoyed spending the day together!

Movie Time

Pete and I love going to the movies.  We have a neighborhood movie theatre that is not only cheaper then the others in the area, but they have, hands down, the best popcorn ever.  It is so good!  

Last weekend we went to see the Hangover.  Ran, do not walk, to your closest theatre and see this movie.  It was a comedy (duh!), but not one of those Will Ferrel Type comedies.  It was funny and witty and so entertaining.  Alot of people in the theatre broke out in applause when it ended.  We laughed the entire movie.  It is a new classic for sure.  I will be getting this on DVD when it comes out.

Last Night we went to see Pelham 123.  This movie had a very interesting story line.  It was entertaining and had a few big named stars in it.  This is where the problem lays.  John Travolta was not very good in it.  Ever single time he said Mother F*cker I laughed.  He did not play a bad  guy well at all.  I kept seeing him  in Hairspray or Look who’s Talking, then I would giggle!  LOL  Pete and I talked about it and we think that Bruce Willis or Ray Liotta would have made a much better “Ryder”.  He was the main character and just so unbelievable.  But the story was good.

Now I want to see UP.  I really want t o see it in 3-D, but the Pop Corn drawls me to Hollywood Theatre and they are not showing it in 3-D!

NJ, DEL, PA & MD – Part Five

After we finished a great late lunch we headed to our hotel in Clarks Summit.  What a pretty area!

Our Hotel!

We went and checked in, love Priceline, and got a Presidential room.  Our room was right next to the Spa.  After checking out the room we went to lounge in the hot tub.

Pictures of our room!  It was so nice. 

After the hot tub we got showers and went a drove around.  It was starting to get late and we were worried places would close since it was a holiday weekend.  We went on the search of somewhere to eat.  We didn’t want to eat at Pizza Hut, I like local places.  We ended up at the State Street Grill.  OMG it was so great!  We wished we were locals so we could go back. 

It looks as if they do not have a web site.  But it was amazing.  They had beer on tap, something local that Pete loved.  Pete got a Burger that was out of this world.  I got Truffle Mac & Cheese and Chili Lime Wings…OMG Heaven!  They were the best wings ever!  We had a great waitress too.  She recommended the deserts we had.  We each got one and shared.  We had Creme Brulee, which was the best I ever had and Peanut Butter Mousse cover in chocolate….OMG  Just thinking about them makes me want to drive 5 hours away for dinner tonight.  LOL

It was a great evening.  We headed back to the hotel and relaxed a bit before heading to sleep.

The Next morning we got up and went to the main building for free breakfast.  I was expecting ceral and muffins, but was greated with Bacon, Sausage, Eggs, Waffels, Muffins, Bagels, Fruit, Ceral, Oatmeal, Joice and few more things.  MMM Best free breakfast ever!

This is the breakfast area!

After Breakfast we headed to the outside lounge and just sat and talked.  Check out wasn’t until 12:00pm and I like to get my money’s worth!  LOL

After checking out we started talking about what we wanted to do for the day!  SHOPPING!  We headed to Amish Country to hit up the outlets in Lancaster.  On the way we decided to go to Good and Plenty for lunch.  Pete loves their buttered noodles.  I swear we went here for noodles.  LOL

Shopping was fun!  I got a bunch of stuff and so did Pete….THEN we hit the Disney Store outlet and Alyssa scared big!  Plates were on sale so she got 5 of them.  A new Bathing Suit and cover up for the trip was needed too!  We also go a few gifts for a birthday party we had to go to the next week!

I also got a new Coach Purse.  Oh La La !  I need to take a picture of it.

We stopped at Sonic after the outlets for a Cherry Limeade.  MMM!  So good!

NJ, DEL, PA & MD – Part Four

During our Trip we were so close to Scranton, PA we decided to go to Margie’s brother’s restaurant.  I am a big hotdog fan and I have heard his are the best….Well Now I can sat they are.  Everyone needs to tgo to Coney Island Lunch.  MMM MMM Good!  Margie’s brother Pete was not working so we didn’t get to say Hi.  BUT we did have the BEST Texas Wieners EVER.  We had a Texas Cheeseburger too….I wish I had double wieners.  LOL  The burger was good, but nothing beat the hotdog.  Oh the mustard was sooo good!

When we got on we wanted to sit up front, in the first seat and some punk kid pushed his way to it before us!  So we were in the 2nd seat, this seat had way less leg room for my tall boy!

If you look closely you can see the headstones built right into the back wall of this church!  This is the only church that survived the Indian war.

There is an Indian face in this mountain.  It is a profile shot.

Imported Photos 00600 by you.

In this cave it is always 38 degrees.  No matter how hot or cold it is outside.  During the 50’s there was a restaurant built here and they would open the doors and let the cool air in as AC in the summer.  They also stored all of their food in the cave.  Free refrigeration.  This is a trick they learned from the Indians.  The Indians used this cave as a storage place for food.  You are not allwed in the cave right now because the bats who live in the cave have something wrong with them.

The morning after the party we headed to North NJ to plant flowers on Pete’s brother’s grave.  Since his parents moved to AZ this has been our job.  We don’t mind and we planted some pretty ones.  I for got to take pictures.  Pete took some with his phone to send to his parents.

After planting flowers we hit up Herbies for some Ice Cream and Hot Dog Johnny’s for a quick hot dog.

Playing Catch Up!

A few weeks ago we were heading to NJ for a Graduation Party.  First stop was a visit to the Grave Yard.  It was the 6th anniversary since my Mom passed away, May 23rd.  What a sucky day.  We made the best of it and took Mom flowers.  I also took a bunch of pictures at the graveyard.  I know some people think this may be morbid, but I am interged by graveyards, I find them so interesting.  Plus I have my camera and Alyssa was looking cute!

Lisa? Lisa Who?

Ok Ok, I think I was blogged out.  I was bored and just haven’t had much to say.  Work has been soo busy that I have to actually work like the whole day.  LOL 

My Grandfather is still doing horrible, I just don’t see how he is going to recover from any of this.  I feel horrible for his suffering!  I have slacked off on going to visit because it is so hard.  He is so not himself and it hurts too bad.  I already miss him, he is gone, not himself, not anything.  It it so tough. 

I have been spending lots of time with my Alyssa girl.  She is growing so fast and I don’t want to miss any of it.  She is so funny, she really cracks me up sometimes.  Just last night she had me rolling when she would take two deep breaths then stick her whole head under water in the tub!  LOL Then the sweetness soaked in while I was snuggling with her while she took her bottle and fell asleep in my arms.  That great baby smell is the best!

My house is a wreck, I have not been home long enough to give it a good cleaning.  I need to set up our home network too.  I have bene trying to back up my pictures because I ran out of space on my laotop!  EKKK!   LOL  I also want to get the office in shape this weekend.  It is still so full of wedding gifts and leftover DIY wedding projects.  Pete needs to start studying for his tests and needs a good space to do it.  We have a new desk to put up and organize!

This weekend Laura is going camping (I miss ALyssa already) and my Dad is going to the Ocean.  Pete has a dentist appointment and I just have so much to do around the house we are staying home.  Hopefully we will get alot done this weekend!

Here are a few pictures:

Mix butter, peanut butter, and chocolate chips in a double boiler just till melted, then remove from heat. Place 3 cups miniature marshmallows in a buttered pan and spread on warm mixture. Save a few chips and marshmallows to decorate the top, or be generous and add extra.
