I spent a few hours on Saturday melting crayons into molds to give out as favors for the Halloween Party at work! They turned out amazing!



My adorable kittens have mastered all the levels of the cat tree in remarkable speed! It is hilarious how fast they speed up and down this thing!!!  My older cat just stared in awe and amazement!



This is soooo me!!! It sums me up perfectly!!! Ha Ha - I sent it to my boyfriend! He agreed ;-)



I harvested the concord grapes at my boyfriends house...I wanted to make grape jelly but I do not thing enough survived to do that :-(  I need to read about grape growing and find out why so many are dying in the beginning of the year before they ripen....



This Saturday is my boyfriends birthday...he will be 60 and we are having a bowling party with his family. I ordered a cake and had this little gem put on a picture cake....so stinkin' cute!



 Hope you a…

Wednesday Hodgepodge

Welcome to Wednesday Hodgepodge!  I'm joining in with Joyce and others for the weekly hodgepodge. Can't wait to read everyone's responses! 1.The first question today was submitted to Joyce by Marla from Marla's Musings.  She asks, "At what age did you feel like a grown-up?  What keeps you young now?
I truly STILL do not feel grown up and I am mid-40s now! I feel better and younger than I did in high school. I think that is due to the fact that I actually workout and try to eat right now that my age is quickly accelerating and back then, I just did not care! I ate fast food and junk everyday and NEVER worked out really. I am acting responsible but I still love acting like a kid too!!! I hope that never changes!
2.  When did you last buy a vehicle?  Was this by design or because you had no other option?  Was the car/truck purchase for your own personal use or was it bought for someone else to drive?  On a scale of 1-10 (with 10 being delightful and 1 being "pa…

Dilemma - End it?

I have been really letting my life ride on coast lately and I am not sure why but recently I realized that I need to get back to making me a priority.
I realized that I let others dictate my time and activities instead of it being me deciding what to do and where to go and with whom.
Not that I am forced, mind you, just that I put my own needs way after others in my life.

So, lately, I have slacked off my meetings (my total sanity), slacked off my workouts (from three hours a night to three hours a week) and slacked off my housecleaning and kitten snuggling time (spending most of my time away from home). 

The slacking was okay as I thought I was working toward building a future with someone. 

Well, I found out last night that we have VERY different goals for this relationship.  

His plans are for things to stay as is and date forever (or live together ... that's his big goal). He seems very serious and steadfast about this like he has his mind made up. He said he will never get married …

Wednesday Hodgepodge

I am going to try something new and join in with Joyce and her Hodgepodge questions today. 

Happy Halfway Through Wednesday!


1. When was the last time you relocated? Did you move yourself or leave it to the professionals? Are you happy staying put or is there a move in your future?
I have been in my same condo for the past 8 years! That is so surprising to me. I honestly cannot believe it has been that long. Every move I have ever done was with the help of my poor family. They lug dressers and beds and TV's like champs! Actually, we always help move each other...it;s a family thing I guess. I am staying put now I think...who knows what the future will bring but right now my plans are to stay put and follow Gods will - LOL.

2. When were you last moved to tears?Explain. I cried about a month ago when I had to put my adorable cat Angelica to sleep. Here is the post - It was so horrible and I can not even begin to explain the grief I felt for days (weeks)!

3. Do you have rules about eat…

Vacation Accomplished

Happy happy Monday everyone! I am officially back from vacation! It is completely amazing how fast a week can go when you are not at work!!!

You can tell that I had an amazing time since I have not posted since day two and it is over! LOL

I am now going to hit you with a bunch of photos from the rest of my beach vacation to Stone Harbor, NJ in no particular order...

I spent many days (all day) on the beach playing with these adorable kids (my nieces and nephews). We build dribble castles, boogey-boarded, and turned into bronze Gods and Goddesses (at least I did - LOL!)



We went to National Night Out on Tuesday which is a National holiday where people go out in their towns and celebrate Law Enforcement. Stone Harbor had a great one!!! We even got to sit in the back of the cop car!!!!



This little girl was at National Night Out...what a little entrepreneur...she used her allowance to buy a balloon making kit and was making them for the kids for donations. What a great idea and she was so stin…
