OMG! It’s been a LONG time since I’ve posted a true life update! Sorry about that – but I am sure by now you’ve noticed some changes with the look of the blog. Making these changes (which aren’t complete yet) are time consuming!
I have to start by saying I can’t hardly believe it’s the middle of August! Where has the time gone?
The first fun friend time I want to tell you about is when Bill and I headed to North Jersey to visit my BFF, Linda. Her daughter (one of Bill and my Goddaughters) was visiting from CA with her 2 daughters (I affectionately call them my Grand-Goddaughters – Ha! I know it isn’t a real thing – but to me it is!). We had a wonderful time, floating on the lake, playing with the girls, drinking wine, visiting and just enjoying each other’s company.
I can finally tell you about my daughters Bridal Shower! It’s been in the works for quite a while. Maeve Michelle did know about it, but only to save the date. She was not involved in the planning or details.
What a great day it was – and a huge thank you to all who came! Jaime (the Maid of Honor) and I had chosen a spot that was mid-way between where Michelle lives in SW PA and where we are here in NJ. Thanks to Ulrica for driving, and Elise for using her phone to Skype with my Mom so she could watch the gift opening! A HUGE shout-out to A Tea Affair in Lititz PA for delish food and tea and helping make the day special!
Hold on – I’m not done yet!
Next up was a visit from Steve & Debbie! We hadn’t seen them since the Spring 2014 Rally, although we read each other’s blogs and are FB friends and keep in touch that way. Bill and I were so happy they took the time to come hang out with us! They are on a whirlwind NE tour, their goal is to hike the highest point in each state! You can follow along with them here: Down the Road with Steve and Debbie
The look on Debbie’s face says it all! YUM!
Steve with his homemade pork roll, egg and cheese on a hard roll with salt, pepper and ketchup! It’s a NJ tradition!
Our most recent visit was Jo & Ben – and Peyton! They are traveling nurses and are currently “stationed” in VA, but had a break between contracts so lucky us!
Girly day – out for pedi’s!
Working on our tans! I sadly think we are now done with friend visits, although our daughter will be spending some time with us, hopefully my son as well. Bill and I have loved seeing everyone and acting as tour guides and showing off our home state!
This doesn’t mean it is our last visit – as our daughter will be coming and staying with us! More on that soon!
