deal of the day, no the YEAR!!

I was out at some sales with my Mom on Saturday, and I was looking around at one sale. I saw 3 baskets sitting on the floor. I calmly asked the seller how much they were, and she said $2 each!! SOLD!! They were all Longenberger baskets which sell for a lot more!! My Mom used to sell them so I know how valuable they were, so I was SO excited about my deal of the YEAR!! I am going to use the larger one for all of our remote controls in our family room, and add the others to my large collection!

Tonight I went over my bestfriend Melissa's house for a Tastefully Simple party. Let me tell you, don't eat before you go! There was so much to try...yum! I decided on Beer Bread, and Ay Caramba cheese ball mix... I might have to put in another order for some more!!! I can't wait to make it up!

the land of oz

Maybe just a month ago, I learned that Frank L Baum, author of The Wizard of Oz, was born in Chittenago (in Syracuse) and there is a museum!! The Wizard of Oz is my favorist movie and I have tons of memorabilia; so when I heard this I HAD to go! Since we were already in Syracuse, Mike and I stopped in Chittenago before leaving the area. We went searching for the museum but no such luck :( It turns out that the museum is closed and moving to the local library in November. I was kinda bummed, I walked the yellow brick sidewalk and the little town had stores with names inspired by the movie: Ruby Reds Diner, Auntie Em's Pies, Emerald City Grill, and Oz and Ends!!

vino vino vino

The the way back from Chittenago, we decided to stop at some wineries.. We decided on Seneca Lake. We visited Belhurst, White Springs, and Fox Run. I think our favorite was White Springs winery. We tasted 6 wines, and we decided to get Sportsman (dry red wine) and Springhouse White (sweet white wine). YUM!!!

Mr and Mrs Preston

Today we went to the wedding of our friends Spencer and Brittney. They had the perfect day for an outdoor wedding, and everything turned out perfect! Their ceremony and reception were outdoors. The wedding was in Syracuse so we decided to stay the night, and go to the wineries the next day.
Congratulations Brittney and Spencer, we're so happy for you!!
Pictures to come on my kodak gallery!

uno, dos, tres

One of our favorite restraunts is the Uno Chicago Grill. They have one of the best steaks,their deep dish pizza is sooo good, and their french onion soup is out of this world! But the main reason we go there is their Deep Dish Sundae. It contains a hot fresh big cookie, vanilla icecream, whipped cream and chocolate sauce to top it off, baked in a dep dish pan. YUMM!! Maybe we'll go there after I get out of work today!!!

cesar millan

Many people have been telling me that I must watch the show "Dog Wisperer" with Cesar Millan on the National Geographic channel because I have a 9 month old puppy. The other night Mike and I had it on. We both got some good tips from Cesar and we will be watching it again! Coco LOVED watching it also, just look at the pics!!

Friday, July 13


A Friday occurring on the 13th day of any month is considered to be a day of bad luck in English, German, Polish and Portuguese-speaking cultures around the globe. Similar superstitions exist in some other traditions. In Greece or Spain, for example, Tuesday the 13th takes the same role. The fear of Friday the 13th is called paraskavedekatriaphobia.

The next Friday the 13th will occur June 2008.

Due to the large number of negative events that happen in the world, a similar list could be compiled for any combination of day of the month and day of the week. Friday the 13th is also sometimes known as "Dooms day."

~January 13, 2006, and October 13, 2006, were not only Fridays, but the digits in the month, day, and year of each date add up to 13. This last occurred on October 13, 1520, and will next occur on May 13, 2011.

~Lake Storm "Aphid", an out-of-season snowstorm that wrought havoc on the Buffalo, NY area took place on Friday, October 13, 2006.

~The asteroid 99942 Apophis will make its close encounter on Friday, April 13, 2029.

~Hurricane Charley made landfall in Florida on Friday, August 13, 2004.

~Several tornadoes touched down in north Texas on Friday, April 13, 2007

~Typhoon Man-yi passed very close to the tiny island of Okinawa, Japan on Friday, July 13, 2007

I got all this info on wikipeadia.com!! Love it!!

It was an awesome match between the two and it ended with Federer winning his 5th straight championship. Since I tune in every year I would loveee to go there sometime in the future and watch some tennis!!
