What a great weekend.  Me, mom and the kids left around 12:30 and headed to the beach.  We had to stop for our annual Arby’s lunch but then got right back on the road. 

We checked in, headed for some specialty shops and had dinner at the Dough Roller…yum!

The next day, we headed to the outlets for some Christmas shopping:)  After dinner, we bundled up to get ready for the lights!


We hopped on the tram..and we were off..





Sorry pictures are so poor..i just had the camera on my phone:/


Our newest picture in front of the poinsettia tree.  This is my favorite picture every year:)

I have so many exciting things planned this month..Happy Holidays all:)

This is the view from our room!

lil b keeps sitting in the window to watch the lights.

When we got back from dinner last night, look who was hanging out.

The kids were so excited that Skip Friddle joined us at the beach.

We’re off to a long day of shopping at the outlets…this is where my Christmas begins ❤

Long time no blog..right?

So much has been going on, but believe it our not, the chaos has been a little more manageable.


I had allergy testing..ugh..the itchiest 15 minutes of my life.  I was tested for 28 allergens and had a reaction to 26:/  At this point they are working to open my swollen nasal passages so that we can get the meds in there to clear up the gross stuff. 


We celebrated kp turning 8 and lil b turning 6…


We survived hurricane Sandy, and celebrated by dressing up like a skateboarding zombie and a kitty cat…


This little princess welcomed winter with a holiday performance to the Nightmare Before Christmas….


We welcomed Skip Friddle after Thanksgiving dinner…

I am so thankful this year that my dad is healthy and cancer free, my husband and children are happy and healthy, that my mother and my sisters remain my best friends ever and that so far..this is the best year by far.

Bring on Christmas!  I have so much to share with you…stay tuned:)

this is what we wake up to every morning…this hair is impossible…

anyway, on to the yummy stuffed peppers I made last night…


1.5 lb of ground beef or turkey

1/2 bag of boil-in-bag brown rice (cause a busy mom likes convenience)

1/2 can tomato sauce (save other half)

2 eggs

1/4 c of bread crumbs

salt and ground pepper to taste

4 peppers

Preheat oven to 350°

Mix all ingredients in a large bowl

core peppers

stuff peppers with mixture

top the peppers with more sauce

bake in oven for 1 hour


I like to cut mine in half right away and top with more tomato sauce….

I paired tonight’s peppers with some Steamfresh veggies…

i wanted to take a pic of my yummy dinner but I was super hungry and ate it…I have two left over for today…but 1 is reserved for P ditty..so I am already looking forward to lunch today!

the kids have already started to prepare for Christmas…
