Boy - it's been a while!

Hello Blog Readers - sorry I have been away so long. I'm going to try and let you know all the exciting things you have been missing. I'll start off with our trip to Disney. We left Sunday Nov. 6th and were in Disney for 5 days/4 nights. We visited the Magic Kingdom, Epcot, MGM studios and Universal parks. It was a great time. David met a lot of characters and we all ate some delicious food. When we left Orlando on Thursday, we made our way to Jupiter, FL for my sister's wedding. Although the wedding itself took place on Saturday, Thursday the festivities started. Thursday night everyone gathered at the Sugarcane Bistro for dinner and/or drinks. Friday after lounging in the sun, was the Rehearsal dinner at a great sports bar. Saturday was the Big Day. Amy could not have asked for a more beautiful day. The sun was shining, but it was not too hot. She looked stunning and had a great time. My Uncle Jack performed a beautiful ceremony and the Jupiter Beach Resort did a fantastic job. Amy and Andrew had an awesome wedding day. Sunday after breakfast with Steve's parents at the hotel we went back to NJ. I have to say, I was happy to be home and VERY glad I had taken Monday off. Friday Steve and I went into NYC for dinner with my co-workers to Blue Smoke BBQ. It was delicious! The rest of the weekend, I did 2 Creative Memories events. On Saturday I did a vendor fair and Sunday I did a Get Together in Bronxville, NY for a friend of mine. That part of NYC is gorgeous. Her apartment is great and she served magnificent food. The next week was Thanksgiving. We spent the day at Aunt Mary's for turkey and the night at Aunt Carol's for dessert and grab bag. My family is nuts and we have a great time together. Friday, Steve and I worked on the house and cleaned. Saturday Tracey, Rich and kids came for the weekend. We went to Shogun 18 for dinner and after we got the kids to sleep, we played scene it?. We cracked up all night. Sunday Steve worked, but the rest of us went to the diner for breakfast. After breakfast, we popped over to Crate & Barrel outlet so Tracey and I could shop. I love shopping. After, they headed back to PA and I went home. Mike & Laura-Ann were waiting for us when we got there. It was time for football. Jill and Joe showed up and then the girls (and David) hit the mall. Steve came home while we were gone and the boys and girls had a good day. Mike and Laura-Ann stayed for dinner. This week I was back in New Brunswick all week - YEAH! Yesterday, I was offered a new job (at UMDNJ) and I accepted! I am not sure when I will start, but I am VERY excited about it. I guess that wraps up the past month - I promise to post more often this month.

Almost ready!

Only 2 days till we leave for FL! I am VERY excited. I got my hair done last night, tonight I go for my pedicure and tomorrow it's nails and waxing. Then packing. I am always a last minute packer - some people like that and some don't. It works for me. First we're going to Disney World. David is going to have such a great time. He's been there 2 times already, but I think this time will be the most fun. He knows all the characters and loves to go on rides. I have made a lot of reservations so he'll get to meet a lot of 'people'. We are going to stop in Universal Studios also - David has never been and Steve and I have not gone since we lived there. Shrek is there and David LOVES him. After we leave US, we're driving to Jupiter. The hotel we are staying in (Jupiter Beach Resort) is gorgeous and that is where my sister's reception will be. I think we're going out for a mini bachelorette party that night - FUN! Friday I plan on hanging by the pool until the rehearsal dinner. Saturday is the BIG day. I can not wait. I love my dress and my shoes, so I am really looking forward to wearing them. I also am dying to see David all dressed up - my little man. I think the wedding is going to be great. Amy will look beautiful and I know we'll all have a blast. Almost all my relatives will be there and that means a whole lot of fun. I'll post pix when I return.
