Still working on my recap from MCM…but until that goes live, I give you some halloween joy of Jackson’s costumes from the past three years!
Jackson The Turtle.
Jackson The Banana
Jackson the Dinosaur at a fancy Howl-O-Ween Party.
and before that as a spider!
What is the best pet halloween costume you have ever seen?
It has always been a goal of mine to get Jackson in a ewok costume – I think it would be perfect for him, but I am just not that crafty!
Scenes from the 2011 MCM Expo:
Marines, Marines all around!
I wish this was the official tshirt from the race – I kinda loved it, except it said “Support Crew” on the back!
A little outline of the marathon route:
This is the first race I have ever been in where we got a patch! I kinda liked it!
I was NOT liking the shirt they gave us. It is a horribly rough material, not technical by any means and the mock turtle neck is a little weird too.
The back of the shirt was a little weird too.
Oh well, I didn’t let an ugly race shirt get between me and my 3rd marathon! Stay tuned for my Marine Corps Marathon 2011 Race Recap!
There are 138,435 feet in a marathon.
And I will be running each and every one of them bright and early tomorrow morning!
Stay tuned for an update on the expo and a race recap!
….oh! and wish me luck! I will need it! 🙂
Today I had the pleasure of meeting RhodeyGirl & PhillyBoy’s Bambino!
This was the first time I had ever met a baby this young – Bambino is only 1 month old!
Sabrina is such a natural with Bambino, it was fun to chat with her about how her first month as a new mom has been. It’s so amazing to see how much she and her hubby, Trig, are in love with their brand new baby. Their little family of 3 is so cute!
Baby Raffi played with us for a little while during our visit, but then he pretty much passed out and slept in everyone’s arms.
It’s pretty easy to fall in love with a snuggly, sleeping, adorable baby – I know I did!
Is it me or is a good chunk of everyone you know pregnant, trying to get pregnant or just had a baby? When did that happen? When did we all become grown-ups, and parents??
Either way, its hard not to get the baby fever after meeting a sweet little angel like baby Bambino. He is going to be a heart-breaker for sure!
Do you and/or all your friends have baby fever right now?
So you may have noticed the past week or so my posting has been a little sporadic. I apologize for coming and going inconsistently on my little blog but I have been a little preoccupied with my job. I am currently in the process of opening a brand spankin’ new store – its been an amazing journey, but its taking up a LOT of my time! All my hard work will be worth it when it opens this Friday!
I wanted to share with you just a few of the images I have created regarding the store store opening!
Do you enjoy my “Jersey” theme??

Today I got to check out the 2011 TASTE Philadelphia Festival of Food, Wine and Spirits at the Valley Forge Convention Center.
I had a great response to my giveaway for free tickets this week I was excited to check out the festival myself – thanks so much to Zareen for tickets!
The food, wine & spirits were very tasty – and similar to last years eats and drinks! Here are a few tastes of what Charles & I enjoyed today!
Swedish Fish vodka = awesome!
Chocolate Raspberry Stoli = double awesome!
We had an awesome time eating and drinking our way through the festival! The perfect way to spend a Sunday afternoon together!
Another fantastic day at the Food & Wine Festival- can’t way to see you again next year!
Hey Philly Friends! It’s that time of the year again – The Philadelphia Food & Wine show has come to town!
