Almost forgot to tell you

Hey guys!

How is your week going so far?

Well so far my “oops, I ate about 10000000 calories this weekend, so I am definitely going to go to the gym EVERY AM next week” (as in this week – the one that is almost over) idea has not been been practiced yet. MAYBE tomorrow.

Speaking of a NEED to get to the gym, I almost forgot to tell you guys that Pat and I booked a vacation! As many of you may know, we have a timeshare in Aruba and love it there. Well this year we waited too long to book anything and there weren’t many weeks that were available that we were able to go.  So this year, we traded in our week and decided to go to TWO places!

We are going to Vegas for 4 nights.



Then we are going to drive to Palm Springs, CA where we will stay for 5 nights.



I am SO excited!! Pat and I have been to Vegas together when we first started dating over 10 years ago, and he has been in CA for work, but I have never been there. I am a little concerned about how HOT it is going to be since we will be there in July, but it looks absolutely BEAUTIFUL.

Time to get ready for work!

Have you ever been to Palm Springs?  Tell me some things we must do / see in Vegas!

Have a great day, guys!


8 Years Ago …

Hey guys,

8 years ago today, Pat and I said “I DO”.


On this day, we said “I Do”

To think 8 years later, you still try to convince me that girls aren’t supposed to poo.


You asked me to marry you on a rainy day in December.

To this day, it is one I will always remember.


When it comes to breakfast, lunch, or dinner, you know to not expect too much from me

You dusting, vacuuming, or cleaning … all things my eyes have yet to see.


You like going to the beach and spending hours in the sun

I find getting my nails done fun.


Several years ago, my car was hit by a deer

You once paid me $5 just to drink a beer.


I often ask you to rub my feet

You get mad when I play songs on repeat.


We like going on vacation, to the movies, and to a concert or two

We’ve seen Van Halen, Motley Crue, Billy Joel, and Kenny Chesney, just to name a few.


We both think Bosco is the cutest thing we have ever seen

You’ll be sure to sound the alarm if your food is touched by a bean.


Baseball, Miller Lite, and Skiing .. these are some of your favorite things

You tell me I have too much jewelry and won’t buy me any more rings.


When Doritos are near, you like to stuff your face

I can eat Orange Tic-Tacs by the case.


You’re smart, sexy, and more recently, a very good runner.

One thing you are not though hunny, is a Mr. Fix-it or plumber.


When we get back from a bike ride, we know there will be a race to the house

I once called you screaming when I was in the basement and saw a mouse


When you wear your glasses, you look just like your brother

You often tell me quotes once said by your mother.


I like to make fun of you for being 10 years older

In the summer, you get mad when I turn the thermostat much colder.


You have always treated my family like they were your own

We both have 10000 pictures of Bosco on our phone.


When I ask you to take me on a long ride, I don’t give you much of a choice

When your singing annoys me, I threaten to post a video of your Bon Jovi voice.


Since we’ve been together, I’ve had many shades of hair

Inside a house in your hometown, there once lived a bear.


We both recently developed a love of country music and even bought our own cowboy hat

Bosco was very upset when he learned you once owned a cat.


Ten years worth of memories – from Bahamas, Key West, Aruba, and of course the NJ shore

Cubby, Jake, & our man Bosco…can’t wait to make so many more!


Enjoy this video that I put together for Pat:

Pat & Lisa




Happy Anniversary, Pat!   I love you.   XOXO


Have a great day!!

Don’t be Jealous

Hey guys!

This week absolutely flew by, and I’m not complaining!  Pat is away with friends for the weekend, so it is just me and Bosco. A few of Pat’s friends spent the last week hiking in VA / DC and since Pat couldn’t take the week off of work, he decided to meet them in DC tonight until Sunday to spend some time with them before they head back to FL.

So what did I do with a night free to do whatever I wanted you ask??

Well, first I went food shopping. Most weeks I like to go super early Saturday mornings since there is no one in the store at that time. Since I did not have much on the agenda tonight, I thought I might as well get it out of the way tonight.  There were actually a lot of people around my age in the store at that time doing their food shopping for the week.   I came home, put away all the food, just ate a quick dinner, and then headed to Bed Bath & Beyond.  Our vacuum broke earlier last week and I couldn’t wait to get a new one. (Yes, my life is super exciting!  haha)  I vacuum pretty much every single day, so I am so happy to have a brand new one to use.


I also spotted these K-cups while at Bed Bath & Beyond and had to get them. I will be trying them out tomorrow AM for sure!



After I got home from Bed Bath & Beyond, I decided to give Bosco a bath (which he was of course very happy about).



Now he is all clean and I just want to eat him up.


I know, I know .. it has been a super crazy and exciting night over here. TRY to not be too jealous!


Have a great night and weekend!!
