Leaving on a Jet Plane!

I am going to be away for a few days for a work-related event! I will try to blog using my cell, but not sure how much access I will have. 

If you don't hear from me, that is why! I will be back for posts on Friday and to share pictures of my new car! 

The insurance company officially let us know on Friday night that they are going to total my car (which is a blessing since there was frame damage). We already picked out our new car and get to bring it home on Saturday!! Yay!

Have a great week everyone! Talk to you soooon!

Philly Fun!

This past weekend my dear family from Maine came to visit us in New Jersey. We also spent some time visiting my sister in Philadelphia. Here are some pictures of our beautiful Sunday fun!

Had such a great time with my amazing family! XoXoX

Happy Easter!

Hope you all are spending your day with loved ones!

I leave you with a picture of Guiness and the sheep his G-Ma bought for him! He LOVES it!

It was taken with my brand new iPhone!!! Yay!

Please be a FAB Friday!

So if you read my blog last weekend, you would have seen that my plans for a Fabulous Friday really did not turn out that way. My car was hit in our office parking lot and it was just a disaster. We are still waiting for the final verdict because the car is 'borderline totaled'. It has frame damage so it will most likely be totaled and I can get the new 2011 Ford Fusion Rob and I have on hold. *fingers crossed*

But this Friday I am going to the movies with my Hubs and some friends to see Water for Elephants. I never read the book although I really wanted to do so before seeing the movie. But whatevs :) 

Tomorrow I am going to Jersey City to get measured for my Sister In Luv's bridesmaid's dress for her wedding! I am so excited for her! 

So I will let you know if today really turns out Fab <3

Hope that YOU have a Fabulous Friday!

Puppy Love

I have so been looking forward to Spring and last week I decided to take my favorite little puppy out for a walk while waiting for my hub*star to come home. Here are some pictures from our walking and then grilling adventure!

Getting ready to go on our walk

His ears blowing in the wind <3

Daddy came home! <3 
(he actually picked us up)

Then we made an awesome dinner!

Mmmm ... 

Of course Guiness wants some too!

Hoping for lots more days like this in the near future!

You aren't going to believe this ...

So ... I was really hopeful that last Friday would be fabulous because all signs pointed to FAB!

However .... at about 3 p.m. on Saturday .... something very very bad happened. VERY bad ... 

An employee at my office went to park her car, and somehow missed the brake and hit the gas ... 

This is what happened:

Yes ladies and gentlemen .... my car is the blue one.  

It USED to be parked in the spot to the left of the Gray car. The driver came behind my car and hit it SO hard that it swerved and landed on top of the gray car.


Now we are just waiting to hear whether or not they are going to total my car. I am driving a rental right now and I just really wish I knew what was going on. My car was SOOO close to paid off ... I can't believe this is happening.

So my Fab Friday didn't end very Fab.

One Month.

I honestly cannot believe that it has been 1 month since we lost Maveric. 
I am torn between feeling like it has been years and feeling like it's been minutes.

I did a pretty good job of keeping my mind off of things today. I worked hard all day and when I finally came home, I immediately took puppy for a walk. He was sooooo happy :)

Then we ate dinner out on the patio and enjoyed the beautiful sunshine!

I will be sure to post pictures tomorrow as I celebrate Fabulous Friday but right now I am going to snuggle with my hubs and veg out.

Finding the Strength

"God built man to do limitless things, and he gave us the strength we need to do them all. but one thing mother nature didn't take into account: God didn't build us with the strength needed to bury our own child." -Allen P.

Weekend Recap!

Soooo. We had a really great weekend. 

Saturday was supposed to be the day that we told all of our friends about Maveric so I was really worried about how I would deal... but I am really proud of how I handled it. I even talked about him a little bit and didn't break down crying! 

Here are some pictures of Saturday night at my dear friend Ellie's grand opening extravaganza!

Christiane (my lovely SIL) and Hubs

Clayton and Eric

Jen, Kevin and Beach (Kevin)

Me & My Love

Isn't he cute with Cannoli on his nose!

Clayton and I

And the Hostess to the *mostest* dear Miss Ellie (and her hubs Eric). 

She had this amazing set up (I can't believe I didn't take ONE picture of cupcakes) of desserts, entrees and lots of other things. It was just amaaaaazing. Definitely go to her website to check out some more!

So Saturday was good. It really was wonderful! 

Sunday .... ehhhh ... didn't start off so great. We were preparing to bring my sister our extra Queen size bed on Sunday morning. We had planned this quite a while ago before we even knew we were pregnant (Cindy and her boyfriend had been sleeping on a full size bed). 

However, when Rob emptied our guest room (which would be Maveric's nursery) I just lost it. I honestly couldn't handle the room being empty. I cried for the first time in a week and then Rob hugged me and told me that the nursery would be full some day and I felt better. 

I am getting there folks. 
We are getting there.

GTKY Sunday!

Getting to know you from:

1. Do you watch/read the news?
I usually have the news on all morning when I am getting ready so I can listen to the stories that actually interest me. Then when I get home from work I usually turn the news on while I make dinner. So watch mostly!

2. How would you describe your "look"?
I am a cute-casual type. I love jeans and cute tops and accessories. I try to look my best always but some days my energy level is just .... not there. 

3. Did you play sports in high school or college?
I played a little intramural softball and volleyball in college!

4. Would you rather give up lipstick/gloss or high heels?
Heels. Hands down. I hardly wear them anyway because I have awful coordination. I adore cute flats!

5. What's your favorite show to watch on tv?
I looooove Modern Family, Bethenny Ever After, Big Bang Theory, Mike and Molly. Basically funny sitcoms are my fav!

6. Would you rather bake or cook?
Bake! Mmmmm Mmmmm Good!

7. Shorts or Skirts?
Skirts! Definitely!

8. What's your favorite scary movie?
I can't do scary movies anymore! I used to love scary movies during thunderstorms, but now I cannot do it. Scary movies are just too scary. 

Go over to Mannland and link up.

I *heart* Nail Polish!

Last week I had painted my nails this color


I loved it. It's a beautiful light gray color. 

So now .... I am trying to decide between my other favorite spring nail polishes:

Splash of Grenade

Lapis of Luxury


Sew Psyched

I had a very difficult time trying to decide which nail polish to use this morning, so I asked Husband what he thought. He chose Lapis of Luxury in about 2 seconds. lol. 

So Lapis of Luxury it is! 

I am so excited that today is Ellie Meisner's grand opening. This girl is amazing and so is her food! 

Have an amaaaaaazing Saturday everyone!

Fabulous Friday!

What's Fabulous this Friday you ask?!

- Little Fockers: We are going to watch this tonight and I am so excited. I have heard lots of good reviews about it so I am really excited. 

- Sleeping in Saturday Morning!

- A day closer to seeing many of my dear friends tomorrow at one of my dearest friend's Grand Opening celebration! See Ellie's Facebook Page here!

- This Friday will be 4 weeks since we found out that Maveric was gone. While it isn't fabulous that he is gone, it is fabulous that I am surviving and Rob and I are closer than we ever have been before. Guess it's a bittersweet fabulous, but I am trying to be positive here!

Wanna share what's fabulous this Friday? Link up!

Wee Bits Wednesdays

I decided to begin participating in Leigh Ashley's Wee Bit of Me Wednesdays!

{one} what is one food that, as an adult you love, but as a child you said you’d never touch?
hmmmm ..... baked beans! I had a babysitter who literally would force me to eat baked beans or I would have to sit at the table until I fell asleep. It was awful. I hated them. Now they are mmmmm  mmmm good.

{two} did you go to college? if yes, what was your major?
I did go to college. I went to Pennsylvania State University. I loved it. I loved the football team and my friends and the entire town. I started off with an undecided major and then decided I was interested in psychology. I then also added a concentration and minor in Business focusing on Industrial Psychology. I am now working in Human Resources and love it.

{three} what’s the most wild animal you’ve seen in real life (not counting the zoo)?
In real life ... not counting the zoo .... it would have to be a 4 foot Wild Turkey right in my driveway. It was the FREAKIEST thing. I had heard *gobble gobble* all morning while I was getting ready and my husband repeatedly told me that I am crazy. We went to leave to go to work and as I opened the garage door, I saw something move. It was a HUGE turkey that was just HUGE! hahaha. It ran away as soon as I started to open the garage door.

{four} have you ever been to a fortune teller?
Yes. She told me that Rob and I would be together our entire lives, that I would have 2 boys 3 years apart and that I would be pregnant by the end of 2010. Technically she was right about being pregnant by the end of the year (if you go by my last menstrual period) so we will see about the two boys. I want to go back and ask her when I will get my take home baby. 

{five} can you juggle?
No. Not coordinated in the least.

{six} hardwood floors or carpet?
Hardwood for sure. But my house is half and half. 

{seven} is it called “soda” or “pop”?

{eight} what was your first car?
A 1992 Blue Saturn Stickshift. I loved it.

{nine} what is the most decadent dessert you’ve ever eaten?
Ellie at Cinderellie's Sweets made me a Chocolate Hazelnut cake for my last birthday. O.M.G. it was to die for. I would seriously eat it every week if I wouldn't be the size of a house.

{ten} how often do you rearrange your furniture?
I have changed the furniture a few times since moving in, but I think we are pretty settled now. We were trying to figure out which room should be the living room since we really have two. 

Well that was fun. I hope that you enjoyed learning a wee bit about me!
