Thursday Things

Hey guys!

Happy Thursday!     How is everyone doing?    I had off of work today, so today has been GREAT over here.    I still have lots of vacation days left that need to be used by the end of the year, so I decided to take one this week.

Speaking of vacation, Pat and I decided we are going to go away for a week in early October.   What we haven’t decided yet is where to.    We own a timeshare in Aruba and haven’t been there in 2 years, but we checked out flights last night and they were crazy expensive so we’ll have to see.      We can always trade in our week in Aruba and go to another Marriott Vacation Club Resort, so we are going to look at our options.

Even though I had off today, I still got up pretty early.   I am a morning person and always have been!    I did some laundry, cleaned the house a bit, went to the gym, and then did our food shopping for the week.


I picked these up while food shopping and can’t want to try them!

I also got this container of kiwi and strawberries.


How juicy and delicious does this look??!!

After food shopping, I decided to hit up the outlet stores by our house.


I have yoga pants that I am in LOVE with and wanted to get more.


I actually got 2 pairs of the blue ones because I liked them so much!


When I got home, I had to go through the necessary bag inspection by Bosco.    Bosco MUST look through any and all bags brought into the house.   I think everything got the All – OK!    🙂


I also wanted to get a cowboy hat at the outlet stores but wasn’t able to find one.     Pat and I are going to see Kenny Chesney this weekend and we both want to get a cowboy hat to wear to the concert.     I went into about 20 – 25 different stores that I thought could have them, but apparently there isn’t much of a demand for cowboy hats.    🙂


I picked this up at Bath & Body Works yesterday and LOVE it.      It smells and feels incredible!


Well, I am off to go look for a cowboy hat.      Enjoy the rest of your day!!   🙂


Memorial Day Weekend

Hey everyone!

Is anyone else glad it is a 3 day weekend??      I know I am!   🙂

Last night my sister came down to stay over for the weekend.

Since it was Pat’s Birthday last week, she made him a cake.


The cake she made was delicious.  My sister is an AWESOME baker.   Although she is a dental hygienist, she wants to own her own bakery someday.  Whenever it is someone’s birthday, a holiday, or any special occasion, you can be sure my sister will bake some unbelievable treats.  She has even made a wedding cake for one of her friends that got married last year.

Bosco was a little concerned about how long my sister was going to be staying over due to the size of her overnight bag.


We had a fun night of pizza, cake, catching up, and TV.  Obviously Bosco didn’t find any of this too exciting.

This morning we were all up early because my sister and Pat were running the Spring Lake Five.   The Spring Lake Five is an annual 5 mile run held every Memorial Day Weekend in Spring Lake, NJ.   I am NOT a runner but went to cheer them both on. There were over 12,500 people registered for the run this year.

Even though it was cold and rainy, it was a fun kick-off to the holiday weekend.

Have a fabulous weekend!!   Doing anything exciting??
