Well that was fun!

My mom returned her kayak.. and got a Wii!!!

It's the new, sleek, black Wii :)

I have been playing it for an hour.. when I should be going to bed. Ha ha, I even got my stuck up brother, (who only likes to fish or do something that involves fishing) to play!

It's going to be a lot of fun, and I hope it keeps the family together-

I want some sex..

... and that's exactly what I got!
Sex and the City that is... :)
I went and saw Sex and the City 2!
And I loveddd it,
a lot-
It is soo much different from the first one! This time it's Charlotte and Carrie with the problems, and I guess Sam with her "going through menopause". The beginning of the movie is a little much, you will see why, but other then that the movie is great! Go see it with your mom, friends, or heck, go see it with your boyfriend, that's what I did! (And i'll be seeing it again with my mom). But really girls, go see it!!!

Just one of those days..

My father told me to go pick up the boat trailor from the boat landing today and when my mom and I got there, we noticed a few cats.. okay more like ten or so cats, just relaxing.. some were eating, some were cleaning themselves, some were starting to scatter. When I walked up to them, I noticed there was a cute homeless pup that was hanging out with all the cats! I seriously think, he thought he was a CAT! Of course I had some food in the car, so we gave the cats some moist food, and gave the pup a can of dog food, and I had a plastic bowl in my car, so I gave them fresh water. They all ate together, but you know dogs.. they want all of the food! So then he started acting up and howling at the cats! lol. I'm going to keep an eye out on him though- a guy pulled up and said the pup has been there for nearly 3 weeks! (Poor little guy.. ) And then when another guy pulled up with his dog, the sad homeless pup looked as if he wanted an owner. . . If only he wasn't so skiddish! I would take him home with me!

Some sky..

The past few days we've been having quite some storms! But these storms have been leaving us with beautiful skies, it's just so breath taking..the first two photo's were on the way to Hilton Head, and the bottom two were taken in Charleston tonight. I love taking pictures after storms, the clouds are just so amazing after the storm leaves.. God really knows how to paint, huh?

I can't wait for summer to come.. I just love :
The river,
fresh lemonade,
tanning oil,
being on a dock,
snow cones,
the breeze,
beach hair,
playing marco polo in the pool,
fresh cut grass,
hand picked blueberries,
falling asleep in the shade,
chilled wine coolers,
sand bars,
watching the stars while laying on the trampoline,
Dill Pickles,
rain storms,
watching movies at the Drive-in,
straw hats,
beach towels,
and especially the sun..

What do you like about the summer?

Food of the day: Lentil soup with spinach, chick peas, and noodles!

While leaving work today, I caught something poking it's little head out of the grass on the golf course.. this isn't something you normally see! So I thought I'd take this opportunity to take a photo just for you all to see!

Food report: Gilligans! Jason and I went to Gilligans for dinner tonight, I had tilapia topped with shrimp, with sides of string beans and mashed potatoes. Jason had shrimp with fried okra and steak fries. And of course we had complimentary hush puppies.

New York Trip..

Hey everyone! I got back on Tuesday from New York. It was a verrry long drive, but it was worth it!
We got there late 5pm. on Saturday, a long day stuck in traffic- but at least we made it! We saw my Great Grandma at her house for few mins, but he we just had to get to our hotel to rest from such a long day! Ha funny story with the hotel, it was being renovated (Thanks for posting that on your site damn hotel). That night we ate at this really tasty pizza place called A Mangiare' Pizzeria, I got yummy spaghetti, mom got pizza. Then we went and got some beer from the neighborhood mart.
The next day was my Great Grandma's Birthday Party! We got ready then went to Antun's which was two mins away, so that was nice. Antuns is a brunch buffet for weddings, parties, baby showers, whatever! There were many parties going on at the time, all in different parts of the building. It was a really cute set-up: Every party gets up and goes to this amazing buffet filled with breakfast food like sliced ham, croissants, waffles, fresh fruit, salads, then lunch foods like salads, pastas, warm dishes, and then you get dessert, amazing dessert, all types of cakes, jello, cookies.. it was just great! While we were eating, they were serving orange juice, and mimosa's! Of course I preferred the mimosa's over the orange juice :) so I, along with the table next to me kept asking for refills. Ha ha. Nothing like getting a little tipsy at Great Grandma's party! We met a lot of people some were family that we didn't know, and other's were friends of Grandma's. I'm so glad she had a lot of people there to celebrate this amazing day! We all sung Happy Birthday, which was happy and sad at the same time, it's just so great that she made it to 100! After that we stopped at a real bakery, filled with the most amazing desserts! We bought Grandma some goodies! Then it was off to tour the Village of Sleepy Hollow. We went to the cemetery of Sleepy Hollow, then to the Hudson River, and then to this place where baby geese were to take pictures!
Then it was back off to Grandma's. We went there ate some of those goodies we got at the bakery. She has this house keeper/ helper named Julia, she's from Poland! She is the cutest little woman I think I have ever met! She is just so energetic, it's crazy.. and guess what? She's 80 years old! The whole time we were there she just wanted to feed us! Ha ha. After Grandma's we went to this other restaurant. I got Ravioli, Minestrone Soup, and beer. My mom got pizza, again.
The next day was just sad.. really really really sad. We started our day off by going to the Eastern Orthodox Church that my Great Grandma used to go to. Let me just say, the churches in New York are breath taking! I'm not religious in any way, but this church was just so en-powering, and beautiful. You could just feel God there. I know it sounds silly but that's how I felt. I lit a candle with my mom and then we took a few mins to breathe it all in. After the church we were going to go to the cemetery to see where my Great Grandfather was buried, but it was just too sad for my mom and Aunt. So we went back to Great Grandma's. My Uncle had to say his good bye's first cause he was leaving on a plane, let me just say, he did the ugly cry.. and later on that day, my mom, Aunt, and I were going to do the ugly cry and then some! But before the ugly cry- my mom and I walked to the Pizzeria down the street, yeah, my mom got pizza AGAIN, I ended up going to another pizza place a block away (with a pizza box in my hand from the pizza place across the street) to get a tasty Cesar salad! We went back to my Great Grandma's house, ate our pizza then had to say our good byes. It was very sad saying our good byes, my Aunt said it first then left as fast as possible, it was just my mom and I left to say ours to my Great Grandmother and then to Julia who was also crying! I just felt so bad leaving, seeing her cry like that is just so heart breaking to me. She just kept saying this is the last time.. and I don't want it to be! Luckily Julia was there to watch over her.. and hopefully God was, too. I love her soo much, she is just the most amazing woman I know. If she wants to leave, I hope God gives her that wish. It's sad, but she wants to go home.
Hopefully we will see her one last time, if not many more-
Happy Birthday Great Grandma!
