We need some music this morning and this one always gets my blood pumping !!!
I’m going to write my, “Thankful ❤ ” blog today as I will be on my Road Trip next week…I’ll try to put up some post’s next week with cool pictures (I know everyone just loves those 🙂 ) We are going to be out East for the Thanksgiving week. I really love road trips. I think the journey is the best part of the vacation. It’s a constant changing picture of everything weather, geography, cuisine… It’s also a comfortable feeling when the place you are going feels like your second home. Being with family and friends who you don’t see every day, the ocean (which the husband has to go see no matter what). He loves the Atlantic and I’m pretty sure we will live by it some day. I have been to Virginia Beach so many times, I have become really good friends with the lady who owns and operates the, “Life is Good,” store. I go out there #1 because the husband has to see the ocean and #2 I have to go buy some new Life is Good clothing. It’s just a given when we go see the guys in Richmond, Virginia Beach is out second stop.
I can’t believe I’m not even there yet and I’m already putting up pictures…Okay this will be my Pre Thankful Thursday blog post. I’m really looking forward to going there for the donuts. I dream about these donuts all year long. We took a picture of Connie at one of my favorite donut bakeries in Richmond.
The other one is, “Duck Donuts.” I will definitely be in Donut Heaven…
So you’ve seen a couple of the places and things I will be doing. No theater this trip but I’ve seen them dance the Nutcracker a gazillion times. I’m looking forward to February and seeing Cinderella. We will probably fly then.
Then it must be Song Lyric Sunday…Y A Y The theme for this week is “Waste.” I have a great one for this from one of my favorite groups, The Eagles. My Song is, “Wasted Time.”
I don’t know where I came up with, “Waste,” as today’s theme. When visiting other’s Song Lyric Sunday the theme was, “Soul.” Well it seems a bit late to change it. I don’t know where I came up with waste 😉
I’ll be working indoor’s this weekend as the painter finishes his Monday’ Masterpiece. This is really beautiful ❤
Good morning blogger’s…Another day of listing, lister’s gotta list. This has really become part of my day. It has been my planning journey. It really has been a quite long journey, it has evolved and it has grown into something wonderful. Today’s prompt is, “Places I’d visit for the food.” Here is my layout for the day…
I know it’s Monday and this is a day late, but better late than never. These weekends go by so quickly and I was out all day, both days. Then last night I remembered Song Lyric Sunday. This theme was pretty easy for me when it comes to songs & music. I picked out one from a group from back in the day. They were one of my fav’s !! ABBA and my song for this Song Lyric Sunday…..drum roll please……..”The Winner Takes it All.” Enjoy ❤
I was going to use a different song than this one, but then I watched the youtube video and I liked the lyrics and referencing the Lord and a Rosary at the end. That pretty much sealed the deal for this Sunday. It seems sometimes we could all use a little prayer sometimes and this weekend would be a good place to start…Blessings
I have had a great week !!! So sad it is coming to an end but so much to look forward to this Holiday season !!! Connie came home on Tuesday and we literally have not stopped since he got here. We went to the movies, Wednesday night…Free Solo. A totally amazing movie. We had lunch at California Pizza Kitchen !!!
Then on Thursday (yesterday) we went to the good old hockey game. He bought the tickets and flew home and surprised us with the tickets for the his dad’s birthday. What a great guy. Great seats and they won. It was so much fun. We had Dinner before we went to the game at PFChang’s, hence Connor with the chop stick fang’s…
We made it to the game after dinner and there’s nothing like a hockey game with family. It’s something we all really love to do. Here’s a youtube condensed version of the game Blackhawk’s vs. Ranger’s. It really was an exciting game !!!!
He’ll be going home this weekend but we will be going out there for Thanksgiving. Road Trip, baby Y A Y !!! Just hope the weather will cooperate in the mountains, even if it doesn’t we will still be going just a bit slower…
When we were at the game last night, they were handing out posters, “Authentic Fan.” On the back was their entire schedule for the season. Just so happens when we go out east they will be playing in DC vs. the Capital’s (Stanley Cup Winner’s last year) so that’s where we will be. I know I said I would never go to an away game again, but I don’t care. I’ll behave and it’s going to be so much fun. Then we will be spending Thanksgiving with their friends and families, so that should be fun. Oh and we will also be staying at the Jefferson Hotel in Richmond. My absolute favorite place to stay. It is rich in history and a beautiful hotel.
Shopping in Cary Town and OMG, I’ll be filling up with the Sugar Shack and Duck Donuts. It’s going to be so much fun this year and the Holiday’s…I’m really looking forward to them. Christmas, New Year’s and yes the Winter Classic. It’s turned into a real family tradition and we are so blessed…Enjoy your weekend blogger’s ❤
Three little words…How often do you say that. Me and the hus say it everytime we hang up from our phone calls, when we wake up in the morning, when we go to bed at night, whenever we leave the house. It’s like saying, “Hello or Goodbye” for us. It’s just what we do. We do the same with our kids. Just three simple little words that mean so much. I love you ❤
It’s a great day today !!! Looking forward to a great week.
I just love the pic…Time goes by so fast. Where did it go…That’s Connie up there in the middle he’s 26 now the baby and our oldest is going to be 36 in November. I’m not older since I stopped having birthday’s around 40 years old. Have a great week blogger’s ❤
I just love, love, love Friday and the weekend and especially payday !!! It’s all good. I just paid myself, my usual Amazon order. I just love ordering on Amazon !!! Planner kit is on it’s way from Scarletlime/Planner Society Girl. Connie’s coming home with a special surprise for his dad..(Hawk tickets, shhhh) and I get to go too !!!! Woo Hoo !!!! What a great guy. Those tickets are not easy to come by and the price tag on them is hefty. He’s a great kid and we just love him to the moon ❤ So looking forward to next week.
I just love this song so I must post it again. That’s my love & life, “Perfect.”
It’s almost November and that means Road Trip Baby, Y A Y. That means I get to use my TN (Travelor’s Notebook). It’s going to be a great holiday season this year. Winter Classic is right down the road, i.e. South Bend, IN at Notre Dame !!! Yes we are going Y A Y, again. Thanksgiving is going to be in Richmond. Staying at the historic Jefferson Hotel. Just beautiful. Life is good ❤ I think I’m going to get a new pair of shoes today. You know what they say…
Stay tuned b/c I’ll have some really exciting news IDK when, but soon.
Good Tuesday morning blogger’s…OMG I am so glad that’s over. Yes exactly, “What is over?” I’m sure your asking yourself. First let me tell you I am no stranger to medical procedure’s/hospital visits/yadayadayada…. I have had 5 children (3 naturally and 2 with an epidural) I was in the hospital for over a month when I was in a very serious car accident/coma i.e. traumatic brain injury, and surgery once.
This morning I had a doctor’s appt. for a blood test. The doctor wanted me to get it before my appt. next week. I was a complete basket case. Really, I made the husband come with me. My appt. was at 8 am because it was a 12 hour fast. I worried all day yesterday and was up half the night. Well it was a no brainer. I went in (made the husband come in the room with me) and she took the blood, done !!!!
I will tell you though, there’s nothing like the having the love of your life staying home from work to take you because you’re scared and you need him with you. As she was drawing the blood, I looked across the room and there he sat smiling. He winked at me, and I was fine.
He is my forever, he is my happy place ❤ I think I’ll date myself, but this is our song from back in the day ❤
