AC Wedding....

Recently I was invited to a wedding in Atlantic City NJ by one of the teachers I work with.  The best part was hubby and I decided to make it a mini vacation and spend the whole weekend down there.  The wedding was Saturday night and so we went down on Friday to relax after a 2-1/2 hour drive.  Had a lovely dinner out and since we are no really gamblers decided to go back to the hotel, relax and rise early for some site seeing and shopping.

They have a Tangers Outlet there and so we stopped at the Coach outlet and got me a present......one I have wanted a long time.  But the stores have very high prices, while the outlets are more reasonable....

and so here is my latest purchase..  After shopping we had a light lunch, returned to the hotel for a shower and made our way to the wedding ceremony and reception.

Had a beautiful night with beautiful people.....

Ever since I......

moved into my current neighborhood....from day 1 - I was greeted by my new neighbors and asked if I would be interested in joining in their annual block party.  Never having been to one, much less a part of one.....I agreed and quickly became one of the neighborhood party goers.....flash forward 10 years and having just celebrated another block party..each year it gets better and better as more young families move in and the street is overrun with young children, including my grandchildren.  It was a beautiful day, with lots of kids, friends, family and food.....games, rides and music..





Way into the night....all had fun.....until next year.....

I would rather.....

be on a beach, be starting my cruise, reading a book, drinking a glass of wine......instead I am getting ready for our annual block party on Saturday.  I one day deal....but it has taken me almost two weeks to prepare for it....


It is an amazing day, with water slides like above, cotton candy, jumpers and lots of music.  Families are outside from morning to night, cooking and eating all day.  Kids are running all around and having fun.  But it is still work....been shopping, preparing and cleaning.....still have to get buns for the hotdogs and hamburgers...and ice for the chest.

But I still would rather be on my deck, reading one of the many books on my Kindle.  With a glass of wine....At my age, quiet and serenity....like going to the beach, is a must.  I do love the grandkids and sometimes we go to the zoo....which is ok...love the outdoors and I do get to sit from time to time.  I would also rather be on a cruise (oh wait, I have one booked) soon to the Bahamas....ahh....where someone else takes care of me....cooks, cleans and entertains me.....I can do that.

What else would I rather be doing? Crafting....making more jewelry items like bracelets and necklaces.  It is a way for me to relax also.  I would also rather be having a mani and pedi which I need.  Another relaxing thing to do.  But alas, we all have responsibilities.....but interspersed with that we must find time to relax....and smell the roses.....

Vacation......

Mostly everyone gets one.....one week, two weeks....maybe a month.  If you are in my position, you get two months..the whole summer off....relaxing, spending it any way you want....what to do, what to do?


OK, time to show off what I do.....grandkids....never ending play time, excitement.....and energy.  Of which I find I have none...but somehow they keep me young, keep me from thinking about my own ailment, and push me to LIVE LIFE.

These are only 4 of our my 8....and more pix to come after this weekend when we have our annual block party....must rest now to save up my energy for play time......BeaderBubbe signing off....for now
