Saturday Check-in

Hey Guys!

I just wanted to check in and say hi.        Today was a pretty fun day around here.

Since we live just 1 1/2 miles from the beach, we try to just eat breakfast at home on weekends in the summer because there is just too much traffic to go out to get something.   Today Pat and I were both in the mood for bagels though, so we decided to get some coffee and bagels from our favorite bagel shop.

We of course took our favorite furry friend along for the ride.


We also may or may not have forced him to take some pictures with us.     🙂

After breakfast, I did some laundry, went food shopping, and cleaned the house for a bit.      I then went to visit my mom who just had hiatal hernia surgery about 2 weeks ago.  It was a pretty involved surgery (6 1/2 hrs.) and she is currently in a rehab facility for a few more days before she will be able to go home.    We talked for a while and she showed me around the facility, which was gorgeous and really modern.

After I got home from seeing my mom, Pat and I decided to take a bike ride together since it was actually a pretty cool day out (for July).     We went on a bike trail near our house and covered close to 20 miles or so!   I have a feeling my booty is going to be sore tomorrow!!    🙂

We decided that since we got a pretty great workout in, we deserved to stop for a cocktail on our way home.    We met another couple at the bar and chatted with them for a while before heading back home.      After we got home, we Pat grilled up some steaks for dinner.   Bosco even got his own little filet mignon (SPOILED Shih Tzu!).

Now we’re all just hanging out on the couch and watching TV.

Have a great night,  guys!

What was the best thing you did today???

Thursday Target Trip

Happy Thursday, guys!

I made a trip to Target today and here are some of the things I bought..



Love these!   I have one just about every day.


Oatmeal and butterscotch??   Yes, please!  🙂



I can’t wait to try this!    I think I will make a cup as soon as I am done with this post.   🙂



I have heard a lot of great things about this, so I can’t wait to try it!

Have a great night!    Tomorrow is Friday … woohoo!!!    🙂

Little bit of this, little bit of that

Hey guys!

So it is still about 150 degrees out here in NJ (give or take).       Me and heat / humidity are NOT friends.     I can’t wait until the Fall!

Last night Pat and I went to a homemade ice cream place by our house and they had chocolate chip cookie dough sauce as a topping … as in smooth, creamy, tasted just like a warm, fresh out of the oven chocolate chip cookie sauce .. and let me tell you, it was DELICIOUS!!!!   I have been thinking about it ALL day.    haha    🙂        I didn’t even think to get a picture of it, but you can be SURE I will be having it again and will get a picture next time (which I am sure will be VERY soon!).    🙂

One of my favorite stores of all time is Express.    Some things there can be a bit pricey, but the quality of clothes is AWESOME.   Some of my favorite pants and shirts are from Express and some I have had for many years and they still look new.       I also love that they send out coupons pretty much every month.     Here are a few new shirts and pants that I bought today for work.


Since I had a coupon, I was able to get 2 pairs of black pants, 4 shirts, and sandals for $180.00.   I was really happy, since the pants alone are $69.99 each!     🙂

Have any of you guys tried these yet?


If not, you need to!       They are DELICIOUS!    These are the 8th or 9th package of them I have bought.

Have a great night!

What is your favorite clothing store?   Favorite topping to get on fro-yo or ice cream?


Hey guys!

It is SO hot out!!!


I want to move somewhere where I never have to see that it is 100° in my car again.      suggestions???

Pat said I need to move to Alaska … I am considering it …   I will have to discuss with Bosco tonight.   🙂


This was Bosco’s reply when I told him he may need to get a job as a sled dog.




This face is too cute for manual labor.    🙂


Some things I’m LOVING this weekend

Hey guys!

I thought I would share some things I am lovin’ lately.


This watch.   It is actually my sister’s .. I just “borrowed” it from her .. (AKA saw it at her house, put it on, took a picture of it on, then sent her a text that said going to borrow – thanks!!!)   🙂     What else are sisters for, am I right?




I LOVE this cereal and individual packets for just 110 calories?    Delicious and super convenient!


My hunny after a hard day’s work.  🙂


These are DELCIOUS!   You need to go get some NOW.   🙂


afternoon walk with the hubby


grilling for dinner –  steak for the hubby and grilled shrimp and peppers for me!


because 1 picture of Bosco is not enough.   🙂

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!    🙂

Hey Guys!

Does anyone have a 3 day weekend this week?   I didn’t – I had to work today, but thankfully it went by super fast.
