Our Anniversary Getaway to New York City!

Just do it! That is what we decided to do twenty-four years ago when we “ran off” to the Virgin Islands and got married after six months of dating and we are still running off to new adventures today!
This time we decided to head to the Big Apple and extend a business trip into a weekend mini vacation.
Buckle up and enjoy the virtual ride!

Day One:
Red eye on Jet Blue

Looking tired and crazy but excited! Arrived in New York at 8:30 am Saturday morning. Quick change then off to the subway!

Beautiful Grand Central Station!

On the streets of New York!

I had to pose for a little NYC fashion street style!

The weather was perfect about 70 degrees with a crisp fall breeze!


The hubby had to stop and pose on the “Law and Order” steps of justice. It is his favorite show! I can just hear the theme song!

Next stop 9/11 Memorial


This amazing tribute to the lives lost on that day will leave you speechless. Here is a picture of the fountain outside the memorial with all the names of those lost inscribed on the ledge surrounding it.

Next stop a little retail therapy at the
amazing Westfield Mall across the street from the 9/11 Memorial -Beautiful!

Next Stop- Taxi to Highline!
An urban park that goes on for miles along an abandoned train track above the city. A sight to see!

Day One ended with dinner back at Cipriani Italian restaurant in Grand Central Station right next to our hotel at the Grand Hyatt on 42nd Street.

Day Two-Sunday
The play was amazing!  Performed at the beautiful Rodgers Theater. The story, the music, the performances all live up to “the hype”!



My hubby was a history major so he was really excited to see and hear the historical events played out from such an interesting perspective. It was such a memorable way to spend our anniversary-priceless! The play is coming to Los Angeles next year, so check it out!

Day 3- Monday night
We ended our adventure with a quiet dinner at Benjamin’s Steakhouse, feeling very blessed to spend another year together.

Twenty-four years ago he literally swept me off my feet ( not sure if that would work today, LOL!)
Nowadays, we have a lot less hair, a few more pounds but a ton of fun together! I am so glad we decided to take a chance on love and just do it! Looking forward to our next adventure!

Stay busy being fabulous,

Movies, Books, and Restaurants!

I have been in a “blog fog” lately not really knowing what to write about. Work has been very busy with the start of the school year and I have not been doing much… just eating, going to the movies, and catching up on my reading. So I decided to just blog about Movies, Books, and Restaurants!

The hubby and I love going to the movies! To the point that we keep a huge bag of peanut M&M’s ready to scoop up as our “movie candy” whenever we need it…don’t judge us!

Fall Kitchen Tour

I am so excited….I made my first video!  I wanted to be brave and try something new with my blog so I decided to learn how to create and edit videos!  Well, after many hours and several failed attempts I finally finished my first fall kitchen tour video! I decided to make this video a fall kitchen tour because fall is my favorite season! I love the colors of fall, the cool crisp breezes, college football, and the comfy warm fashions!

I also enjoy decorating my home for every season and my favorite room in the house is my kitchen! I remodeled the kitchen about nine years ago and it is still holding up! Trust me… it has been through many family gatherings, science projects, and sticky hands! It is definitely the center of our home. I am thankful to God for all the years spent with family and friends in this kitchen.

Now this is my first video so it is definitely not perfect! The lighting is not the best and the music is too loud for my voice over LOL. Also, it looks a little blurry in full screen mode so it’s better to view with the mini screen. Overall,  I am happy with the result for my first time!  I hope you enjoy this fall kitchen tour, let me know what you think in the comments! Happy September!

Below is the link to the recipe for the 2 point Weight Watchers Pumpkin Muffins mentioned in the video. Enjoy!
