Yesterday we went to a BBQ place in New York City called Dinosaur Bar-B-Que. It was so good. We went with our friends from church and had a blast. Our friend Steve loves "meat". hah
He was truly in his glory at the BBQ joint. My hubby leans more towards seafood, but he will enjoy his share of BBQ from time to time. Looking forward to heading back to NYC to see the tree once it is up and visit Rockfeller Center to watch the ice skaters. I also love going to Bryant Park they have little shops set up for Christmas and they sell crafts and all kinds of different items. Last year I got my eye glasses there. LOL I only need readers so I was able to find the strength I needed and they were PINK. My favorite color ! Just couldn't pass them up.
Looking forward to what treasures I will find this year.

Speaking of Treasures - I love this verse "Where your treasure is, there your heart will be also"
Matt 6:21

Thanksgiving 2009

Had a wonderful day with family. We went to upstate NY to my husbands cousins. They have a beautiful home. They have a huge picture window in the dining room and I was hoping to see deer. Well, right after dinner 3 beautiful deer just slowly walk right through their yard right by the window. It was amazing - I was so thankful to see them. We had tons of great food and fun. They have a sweet 1 year old who was just precious. He smiled and acted shy. Really a sweet little boy. Looking forward to tomorrow and some breakfast, errands and shopping !

Kelly's Korner is doing show us your life - Pets
I love to brag about my doggie - Solomon.
He is my baby. He is 12 1/2 years old.
He is a westie. A very spoiled westie.
Just like Kelly's dog Dawson, Solomon follows me around room to room.
Sadly he is the boss. I failed doggie 101 that is for sure.
When my husband came into the picture Solomon had already been with me
for 7 years. Needless to say he was none to happy with this addition to my life.
He is S-L-O-W-L-E-Y starting to accept him. Especially when I am not home, than
Gary is okay. He will give him cookies and take him on a walk. But once Mom hits
home - bye bye Gary. We laugh because many times the expression on Solomon's
face when he looks over at Gary sitting with me on the sofa is pure disgust.
He gives him the meanest look - we just crack up. But we both love the little guy.
He has a yellow duck that he got as a first birthday present. It is his baby.
He carries it around the house crying, seeking the perfect place to bury it. He does
this routine about twice a day. You can see he is totally stressed out until he finds
just the perfect spot. The duck is in the photo above.

Birthdays, Anniversaries, Vacations & Blessings

WOW what a month it has been. Hubby and I had a wonderful trip to Texas. Loved it. Praying the Lord will relocate us one day. Returned from vacation and it was my 50th birthday. Hubby made a special trip after working all day to NYC to buy me my favorite food. This was just the beginning of a special birthday week. My 50th birthday present is a trip to Hawaii ! How much better can it get . . . well two days after my birthday is our anniversary #2 and he took me into NYC to Fresco's by Scotto and wonderful Italian restaurant. I received a beautiful pink pearl necklace. I love PINK and I love pearls. I have the best hubby in the world. The 48 year wait sure was worth it . . . Happy anniversary Hon . . . can't wait for many, many more . . .
