We as women wear so many different hats that it would be nearly impossible to list them all here. You don’t have to be famous or popular to be recognized because we all have made history by touching someone’s life and that’s cause for celebration.
Like you, I am sure there were women in your life that were very special and deserves to be celebrated. For me it was my grandmother, Nina Margaret Midget – she is the one who made me the celebrated woman that I am today!
Who are you celebrating this month?
Stay Blessed – No Stress in 2014!
Hello Friends and Happy Monday!
I trust you all had a great weekend with an opportunity to do something special with your family or friends. Saturday evening after spending all day sitting on hard gym bleachers at our son’s 1st wrestling tournament, hubby and I attended a festive family event. The family members were some that we had never met before nor did we know they live only 12 miles from us.
It was at my mother-in-law’s funeral this past summer that a cousin told us about this annual family affair and invited us to attend. It was a festive evening spent with our new found family members and their wonderful friends.
Here are a few highlights from the evening.
Their home was beautifully decorated and decked out for the holidays
Plenty of food and drinks…
Chatter and Cheesecakes…
Joyful jokes and jolly …
Many conversations and memories from past…
Festive photo in front of twinkling windows…
Giggles, games and gambling…
A night of Festive Family Fun led to a our first Snowy Sunday…
Did you do anything festive this weekend?
Hello Friends and Happy Hump Day Wednesday!
Hubby and I left early Saturday morning so we could attend the Wedding of my 2nd cousin Kyton Carolina, who was getting married to Shivon Anderson in Mt. Vernon, NY. We wanted to be on the road before 9:30 am so that we could cross the GW Bridge before noon…unfortunately it didn’t happen.
It was smooth sailing going across the Delaware Memorial Bridge
Driving the New Jersey Turnpike wasn’t too bad either…until Exit 11 and that’s when the backup occurred due to road construction!
Finally the skyline of NYC
Crossed the GW way off schedule
We finally made it to New Rochelle at 1:00 pm. but with less than an hour to relax and converse with our friends before dressing. Sherri and I sat outside and had a Barcardi Mojito which definitely helped me unwind, hubby stay inside and talked with Curtis.
Now I am ready for a Wedding
I cleaned up nicely – right?!
We made it to the Church a little late but thankfully we didn’t miss any of the ceremony.

Congratulations Mr. & Mrs. Kyton Carolina!

Unfortunately my family fun ended abruptly when our son called to tell us he was rear-ended in the school parking lot after football practice. Hubby and I never made it to the reception at Glen Island Park instead we turned around and headed back to Delaware.

What a WWW – Whirlwind Weekend Wedding!
BTW – Kyton was a Jr. Usher in our Wedding 23 years ago – talk about feeling old!
Hello friends, I hope your day was productive and stress free but if not, have I got a Vlogger for you!
Cook E doeFace is my “play cousin” from Philly, she reminds me so much of my real cousins in New York, like them she makes me laugh and brightens my day.

With so much hatred and negativity in today’s world, it’s nice to have an escape, a place to go if only for a few minutes to kick back, relax and enjoy. So if you need some funny in your life, check out my “cuz”, I guarantee she will make you smile!
“Cook E doeFace Place is a relaxing place where you can get great, easy to make recipes, for novice all the way to the pros.”
