Happy Monday! Hope everyone had a great weekend. McCoy and I spent the weekend in our Nation's Capitol...Washington, DC. We were there for a kickball tournament for McCoy - and I got to do a little shopping in Georgetown & relax/catch up on sleep. Maggie stayed with her grandparents ... They are the best. And she loves sleepovers with them. It was a great time. We had dinner at Pizzeria Paradiso in Georgetown on Friday ... That place is my favorite! And on Saturday I had lunch at Cafe du Parc. It's a great spot to sit outside, people watch and enjoy a refreshing glass of wine.
Cheers to the week!
Good Morning! It's Monday ... and I was off from work on Friday - so it's nice to be back. Although let's be honest ... being on a permanent vacation would be AMAZING! I was off on Friday because McCoy & I went to Manteo, NC for a wedding. One of my dearest friends - who is both beautiful on the outside and the inside - got married!! Pamela used to be a model ya'll. For real! You might have seen her in a magazine!! She is just the sweetest friend you could have! She's from Suffolk ... her dad is a farmer (Farmer's Daughter & a Model - seriously!) ... and she found the man of her DREAMS! They tied the knot in Manteo, NC - so McCoy and I traveled (w/o Maggie!) to have a little alone time & celebrate Pamela & John's BIG day. I was a Bridesmaid ... and our dresses were beautiful. The wedding was perfect! It captured their love for each other & their strong faith. Now about the town of Manteo - it is quaint & quiet. My Aunt & Uncle actually live in Manteo ... small world! We stayed at The Tranquil House Inn. I highly recommend that place! It was gorgeous ... on the water ... great views ... wonderful food ... friendly staff ! I would definitely go back. If you need a weekend getaway, go to MANTEO! Soo romantic. Here's some wedding pics. Have a great day!
Anyone else a sucker for the entire 'REAL HOUSEWVIES' franchise on BRAVO? It is amazing! Trash! Glitz! Gossip! Glam! These women are table flipping, wine chugging, high heel stomping entertainment for me. I just LOVE it!! And there are new castmembers on the next season of 'REAL HOUSEWVIES OF NEW JERSEY'. It premieres on July 13th. Andy Cohen is a GENIUS! CLICK HERE to read about the new cast.
Good Morning! Long time, No Blog. Hope you are all having a great SUMMER ... WOO HOO! Wait - is it technically even summer yet? I think that happens in like June, but when it's 92 Degrees and the sun is shining ... it feels like SUMMER to me. Right Olaf? (Parents who have seen 'FROZEN' will get that!)
So if you follow me on Facebook (Facebook.com/WooWoo) or Twitter (@WooWoo949) , you will know that I am taking part in this awesome Hot House Yoga Challenge. I've always been a big fan of fitness & running & eating healthy & challenging myself on ways to stay fit! Before I got married like 7 years ago, I tried out HOT YOGA for the 1st time and I loved it. Then I got married, had a kid & got busy. So the yoga took a backseat. But I was thrilled to take part in the #HH21Challenge at my local Hot House Yoga studio in Ghent. For 21 days in May I would need to go to yoga - there are 31 days in the month ... you get the idea. They say it takes 21 days to create a habit so why not create a HEALTHY habit! I have loooooooved EVERY.SINGLE.CLASS !! I am on Day 17 now and I'm actually sad to see it come to an end. Not only have I grown physically stronger, but mentally ... WOW! Yoga is such a peaceful practice. I enjoy the dim lighting in the room, the zen music & the calm voices of my teachers. (Mad love for Zoe!) If you have never tried yoga, don't be afraid to roll out your mat and take a class. You might even see me there.
HAPPY HUMPDAY! It's Wednesday...August 1st. Can you believe it? Already AUGUST!! WOW - Where does the time go? And can you believe it has been almost 6 months since CLOSET FACTORY came to our condo & built that AMAZING closet for me? I love it! And I just "re-organized" it yesterday while Maggie napped. It makes a HUGE difference when eveything is in its place & organized. And you know - CLOSET FACTORY can do more than just closets! They can build ANYTHING you can dream. A Mud Room, a Homework room for the kids with a desk & a fold out Murphy Bed. They can even build you a custom pantry!! I think that is next on my list. It looks like a bomb went off in our pantry. HA!
If you would have told me 10 years ago that I could plug my flat iron & my car into the SAME electrical outlet - I would have told you that you were crazy talkin'. That is sooo "Back to The Future" and just insane. But it's not. And I can. I can PLUG MY CAR INTO THE WALL!!!
OMG. Let me introduce you to the CHEVY VOLT...voted by Car & Driver Magazine as the "Car of the Year" for 3 years in a row, and has won numerous other awards. And my friends over at Mike Duman Auto Sales in Suffolk/Franklin are letting me drive around town in a Volt this week. This car is not only fuel efficient & good looking - but it is FAST!!! I mean really fast. And it looks like a space ship inside. LOVE IT! And let's not forget...the Chevy Volt is a SAFE car too! Definitely family friendly. CLICK HERE for some more details specs from Kelley Blue Book.
OK - I am off to the dentist & then lunch at Hilltop. Be sure to honk, wave & ask me a thousand questions when you see me out & about in my MIKE DUMAN CHEVY VOLT!!
