Sunday, December 16, 2012


My prayers go out to the victims and families of the tragedy in Ct. I cant begin know the devastation and pain that they must be feeling today. And I also can not fathom the evil that laid in this young mans heart that he would commit such a crime. I pray for the babies and the adults that tried to save them.  God bless them and their families.

 Do not stand at my grave and weep,
I am not there, I do not sleep.
I am in a thousand winds that blow,
I am the softly falling snow.
I am the gentle showers of rain,
I am the fields of ripening grain.
I am in the morning hush,
I am in the graceful rush
Of beautiful birds in circling flight,
I am the starshine of the night.
I am in the flowers that bloom,
I am in a quiet room.
I am in the birds that sing,
I am in each lovely thing.
Do not stand at my grave bereft
I am not there. I have not left.”
Mary Elizabeth Frye

Tonight we are going to see something called "The voices of Christmas' It should be nice.

SOoooo Tomorrow I am going to win the Powerball lotto.... I think i heard it is up to $550 million. So This is what I am going to use my money on :

Anonymous donations to victims of Hurricane Sandy

House for Mom
House for Dad
House for me... (near the water would be nice) 
Help out my friends and family
get a brother or sister for my puppy Teddy
a Australia Vacation
Rent a bunch of bouncy castles for the adults and have a kick ass party!!!
rent a yacht in the Caribbean and sail around for a month
a couple new cars...including a jeep and a new fiat in PINK :)
book a stay in the Cinderella suite in the Castle in the Magic Kingdom
Go to the Culinary Institute of America and learn to cook from the masters :)

But mostly I would use my money to help people...including victims of Domestic Violence, Cancer victims, MS Support Charities and several other positive causes. I could change so many peoples lives with that money.... I pray that I win so I can do good for others but if I dont win I pray the person who does will good also with the money !!!   

Wordless Wednesday

PROOF GBE week # 80

 GBE Week #80 ….Single Syllable Challenge

The challenge this week is to write an essay, a bit of fiction, poem, song lyrics, or whatever using ONLY single syllable words. So this is my take on it :) 

I don’t need proof that you are kind, you show it to me
I don’t need proof of sound, I hear your song
I don’t need proof of your light, it guides my way
I don’t need proof of fear; you put it in my past
I don’t need proof of dreams, they are found in your arms
I don’t need proof of hope; I find it in your words
I don’t need proof of peace; I know it in your touch
I don’t need proof of love; it lives in your heart and mine
I don’t need proof of my wish, It came true when I met you

Hi Everyone.... we are currently getting ready for Hurricane Sandy to strike. We are expected to start feeling the effects around 5 pm tonight but just from the way the trees are swaying, id say we are already starting to feel it. We are all prepared with water, ice, candles, flashlights, batteries and most important...SNACKS hahaha... We usually lose power during this storms and last year we went almost a whole week with no power...but this time i am using the Power of Positive Thinking and Im gonna say we will be FINE. :-)

Anyone else in the strike zone???   Well I hope that you and your families stay safe.  I am wishing that my friends on the FDNY and NYPD stay safe and dont get stuck working straight for days. Stay safe everyone...I will keep you posted on our progress !!!!

Have fun !!!!!!!!!!!!!

I saw the Bee Gees!!..........

........... Well not really..hahaa but they were the most excellent Bee Gees Cover band called " Stayin' alive" . Here is their link .  We went Sunday to see them. It was supposed to be an outdoor concert but due to possible thundershowers they moved it inside an adjacent theater. We were all kind of bummed because we had bought our chairs and coolers and were ready to have some cocktails and laughs and possible dancing but instead we were inside and couldnt do any of those. We quickly forgot our disappointment when the band took the stage and started singing. They were AMAZING!!! Every song got better and better and we were singing on top of our lungs . They sung all of the Bee Gee's hits, Andy Gibb's , and some other hits from the 70's . It was soooo much fun and by the end we were all standing and dancing in our seats.
If you ever get a chance to see them, make sure you catch them. You wont be disappointed :)

ps ....i know you want to dance now to Stayin' Alive :)   hahahaha

Teddy's thought for the Day 7/27

 Teddy says :   Find a comfortable spot in the sun and you will be happy  :)


We survived we survived the storm last night. We had some bumps in the road such as lights going on and off (they eventually went off for about a hour but luckily came back on before it started to get too hot in the house), we had some downed tree branches and the worst of it was that we lost internet for about 3 hours...THE HORROR haha. But I had last 50 shades book to finish, which I did so that kept me entertained while I was unable to get online. I know our storm was a mild in comparison to the storms the mid-west has been getting but we were still very concerned. Especially when my very MEAN friends started to post pictures on my Facebook wall. Here is some of the pictures that my 'friends' sent me to scare me ... yeah they are REAL FUNNY <rolling my eyes> hahahahaha

Dutchess County Balloon Festival

Here are some of my photos from a Balloon Festival we recently went to. The launch was at 6am over the Hudson River. We had to get up at 430am but it was totally worth it. The balloons were a sight to behold. Next time I will arrive earlier so I can see them being inflated. I hope you enjoy.....
