Guess I am catching up again  . . .

We have been so busy with trying to locate a condo to purchase
That we have been keeping it pretty low key.

I did get a nice night out with the girlfriends
We went to our local diner they have great food.
Rosie, Marianne, Denise, Rose and myself.
We had a great laugh when our crazy friend Marianne
brought in a bag with a lily that was dead and I mean dead.
Evidently she was bringing it for Rose and left it in the
hot car all day while she worked. She didn't realize it would
kill the lily.  It was just a green stick in a bag hah hah





















On Good Friday we went to my Aunt's church.
It was a lovely service.

Since it was the first Easter without my mother-in-law
we decided to keep it easy.  Gary and I went to church,
then to dinner in NYC at Carmines
Oh the food is sooo good !

Easter Bread

























Carmines special house salad
























Rigatoni with olive oil and sausage















I was on vacation for a week after Easter.

I am preparing the field for rain so to speak and packing away
non-essentials in the faith that the Lord will open the door to a
condo for us to move soon. : ) Spent a lot of vacation packing.

















Aunt Rose and I saw the movie:
Loved it !

























Aunt Rose and I went to lunch at
The Kitchen Witch
We love this place it is so cute inside
























I also met my girlfriend Cindy for breakfast one day
Bacon Street Grill.  Our poor waitress was having a really bad day.
First she ordered the entirely wrong breakfast for Cindy.
Then she poured hot coffee in Cindy's cup of hot tea.
Then she gave us the wrong bill.  We all had a good laugh.












I also got a hair cut. Wanted something cooler for summer.

























Then we had a 50th birthday party
for my husbands cousin Bobby in CT.
We had a lovely time the house was
just spectacular.

I am doing a great 6 week bible study
That The World May Know
Fire on The Mountain
It is so interesting they are walking through Israel
The scenery is so exciting.




























Our friend Chris turned 21.
I can hardly believe it.
We stopped by the bowling alley to celebrate !















We visited two houses in Middlesex but neither one was for us.
One was nice outside but inside wasn't updated since 1950
The other one was nice but they ripped out an above ground
pool and left the huge whole and mess.  So we carry on looking.

Today we had a lovely time my great-nephew had his first
communion party.

He is such a little man ~ adorable LUCAS











































Here is my nephew Robert, his wife Kristin, Kailyn and Lucas.

Had a fun time at work we did Derby Day.
Everyone was to wear or make a hat.

Catching Up

WOW I can't believe I haven't blogged in so long.

We have been so busy helping my sister in law
with the sale of their Mom's co-op.

It was hard to go through all her things.
She was quite the lady.
Here is a photo from when my
husband was young. 

























We worked hard and got the co-op ready
to put on the market. 

We were blessed that we got an interested buyer
almost immediately.

It is a lovely co-op in a great area.




















We shared many happy times in this apartment.



I have been doing some cooking.

We had Culture Diversity Day at work so I made an
Armenian dish called Eetch.



















Armenian Float in the Rose Parade.







































Last week I made a lemon cake from Barefoot Contessa.
It was really delicious.



Tonight I made a No Carb Pizza using Cauliflower as the
crust.  It tasted really good.

I would have liked the cauliflower to be firmer like
pizza crust so next time I will make it a bit
thinner so it will crisp up.




















What have my "boys" been up too?
Just their normal rascal activities hah

Brothers forever !


























Percy in the sink

















Judah in the cabinet
























Crazy boy



















Playing bubbles


























Percy trying to roll a bubble hah

























Still getting inside any bag they can find

















Percy too !

























Poor Percy hiding from the ever crazy Judah

























Percy with his favorite person ~ DAD
















And this boy turned 2 years old !





















And he still loves his mother


























For valentines day we went to MP Taverna.

















We love the food there.


























Best chicken ever ! ! ! !



























Hubby enjoying his salad

























The view of the Hudson

























The ride home sky  ~


























Hubby was excited. He had a week off work ~
for winter break.

He is a teachers aid for special needs children.

I had to work but he was able to grab a ticket to see
The Chew ! 

He really enjoyed the show.

















Hubby and I are looking to purchase a townhouse or condo !

Oh I am so excited.

I have lived in this apt since I was 29.

That's a lot of years.

I am ever so grateful for this affordable

apt all these years but now we need more space.


















We just completed the paperwork to get pre-approved
than we will get with our Realtor. 

Trusting the Lord for just the right place He would have for us.

We need to be closer to my husbands job and our church.

This will mean a commute for me but I will be going against
traffic so it will be manageable.

This is our 10 year anniversary so we are
planning a trip to Europe !  

Not 100% sure but right now we are thinking
Italy and Switzerland

Italy ~ can you say "food" and "gelato"  ??



















Switzerland  ~ sounds like a dream to me
I am all about "mountains"

















Just a few photos of me and the Mr.















































Totally random ~  I love pink peonies.
Look at this dress I saw in a window !  
Oh if I was younger and skinnier LOL

























I've been doing a new bible study.

I love love love Gwen !














The study is so good and I am only 1/4 of the way there.

She has the coolest hair too!  hah

And I'll close with this great post from Gwen
