Dear BabiesRUs and your horrible Customer Service

So... this is email I sent BabiesRUs after all the horrible experiences I have had with them in the past few months. I think it's a pretty good email if I do say so myself!!!!
To whom it may concern:

I have been doing a lot of shopping at BabiesRUs lately as my sister is due in March. All I have to say is that I am so saddened and very, very disappointed with your store in the past few weeks! Every time I have tried to purchase something for my sister, at your store or over the phone, there has been a problem and a VERY rude employee at the other end of the situation. Numerous times things have been left out of the bag and I have had to return to the store to pick up the items. When I present the registry they forget to scan it and then I needed to return to the store to return the items and then repurchase them. It i so apparent that your employees do not value your customers with the way they speak to your customers in store as well as over the phone. Having a baby is supposed to be an exciting time for a family! Picking out baby clothes, toys, furniture, and accessories is also a huge part of that preparation. But when it is nothing but a hassle followed by a headache with no one polite to help you it becomes discouraging. I should want to shop at your store, not turn around and go somewhere else to buy gifts because I know I will be treated better. What should keep me coming back with everything that my family has experienced? I thought you should how one of your customers feels!
what do you think? I m still waiting for a response from them... But I won't hold my breathe!! They are such a big company I highly doubt they care about lil ole me!!!

Approaching the big 3 - 0

In a few months I am going to be thirty. There, i said it. I said it and I got it out of the way. This is something that I have been struggling alot with lately!! When I turned 29 I had a little bit of a meltdown becuase I couldn't believe I finally hit the last year in my 20's!! and that was a BIG deal to me!! I called it my early life crisis....I just always figured I'd be alot further along in my life then where I am now.. I thought I'd be in a better job making a TON of money(but don't we all?), I thought I'd be married, and have atleast 1 kid.

But as I stop and think about it I am really happy!! I have a great home on the beach, wonderful friends, a great family, a beautiful puppy, and an amazing man that loves me with all of his heart!! What more could a girl ask for? I think about it and have come to see that I am very lucky, luckier then some people and I should be very thankful for that!!

As I stop and think about turning 3o in March and I think about all the good things I have to look forward to and I smile!! I smile because I know that my 30th Birthday is going to kick off the rest of my life and happiness I have to look forward to... Brian and I have been talking more and more about getting engaged which is very exciting for me.. My 30's are hopefully going to bring me an engagement, a marriage, kids, and continued happiness!!

So I need to stop look at 30 as being old, I need to stop looking back at my 20's and being sad about everything I did and had. I need to focus on my 30's and all the good things I have to look forward to - cause I certainly have a ton to look forward to and that makes me happy and excitied!!

Tasty Tuesday

I made this Spinach & Artichoke Dip for a Thanksgiving appetizer to bring with us to my Aunts house and it was a HUGE hit... Everybody devoured it I thought to share my recipe...

  • 2 packages frozen, chopped spinach - thawed

  • 2 cans of quartered artichokes in water, chopped finely

  • 1 1/2 cup of grated cheese

  • 1 1/2 cups of light mayo

  • 1 TBLS of Crushed Redpepper

  • Half of a yellow onion, diced finely

  • dash of black pepper, salt, and garlic powder

Drain the water from the spinach and the artichokes. Add mayo, cheese, spices, and onion, mix well and place in a baking dish. Put in a preheated oven (350 degrees) and bake for 20 minutes or until bubbling and brown on top.

I served it with Tortilla Chips, Melba Toast, & Pita Chips... If you like tomatoes then you can deseed a tomato and chop it up and put right on top after it comes out of the oven. Not only does it add color but it makes it taste yummy as well... Enjoy!!

Getting Back to Blogging

So I have been MIA for a while now... I think I needed some time away to realize that I really do miss blogging.. I miss the writing, I miss my readers and Bloggy friends, just miss it~
I've just been so busy I've found no time to really go online except to check Facebook and my hotmail email.. I have a Gmail account that I NEVER check! It is linked to my blog and I use it for junk email. I should probably check it since I have like over 2000 emails, lol.. Maybe one day I start and check a few at a time..
So, so much has been going on!! My best friend just had a baby.. I'm getting ready for my nephew to arrive in March and with the holiday that just past and Christmas around the corner I feel crazed!!! I can hardly believe it is almost december.. it feels like yesterday I was going back to work and the summer was winding down... I feel like the older we get the quicker the time goes.... I guess thats night a bad thing!! I just want the spring to get here and get here fast! I want to change the clocks back so it stays lighter later!! But as soon as the Spring gets here I will be closer to turning 30.. Last year on my 29th Birthday I had an anxiety attack about turning 30.. But now as I look at it 30 is going to be great.. I have a lot to look forward and I think that fun stuff is going to happen in my 30's... Getting married, starting a family and having kids, hopefully a new job, etc.... I don't think it'll be that bad!!

Always Remember Never Forget - 9/11

Always Remember Never Forget
I will always remember this day... I will always remember this day so perfectly in my head; like it was just yesterday!!
This picture was taken 3 days prior(which happens to be Brian's Birthday) from my friend who was up in a helicopter watching a boat race. It is so eerie to see - knowing now that the building would be gone in 3 days!

I decided to go into work early that day! I took the 6:50 Express train to the city and arrived at Penn Station in about an hour! I got off of the train and picked up a strawberry scone and carton of OJ for breakfast... ( I was single at the time and much younger) So, when I saw 3 HOT firefighters outside I felt compelled to spark up conversation. We chatted for a minute while I waited for a cab.. i was lazy that day and didn't feel like walking.. Then they got a call and said they had to go.. Little did I know that those firefighters were being called to the World Trade Center because a plane crashed through one of the towers..
I decided to give my mom an early morning phone call just to say hello. She was watching the news.. We talked for a few minutes and then I had to go! She was watching the news and mentioned something about a plane crash in city. After we hung up the phone she said she tried calling me back, but the phone line was busy for the rest of the day. She always says she wishes she told me to get back on the train(that's what she tried to call me back, she said she knew somwthing was wrong.)
The girl infront of me, waiting for a cab, was stressed because she was late for a meeting at The Trade Center. Little did she know that her being late could have saved her life! There were no cabs in sight so I decided my lazy ass should start walking. I still can remember hearing all of the police and fire sirens as I walked the New York City streets and made my way to my building.
So as I got to my building on Broadway, I took the elevator up to the 44th floor and when i got off I noticed the building was empty, more empty then usual. As I walked through the halls I came to the TV's and watched as the The Tower burned, smoke pouring out!
I went to my bosses desk, wrote her a note staing I was in and that I was going to head back to Jersey. I had no idea what was going on - but I new it wasn't good.
I headed down and out and I hoped in to a cab. The was one of the scariest parts of the day. As I rode alone to Penn Station the cab driver (of different descent) muttered under his breathe and laughed about how "we finally got them" how "we finally did it" how "we finally brought them down." He started speaking another language and began to chant - I started to cry and asked him to pull over.. I wanted out! I paid and got out of the cab and walked the rest of the way!
I rushed into Penn Station with the rest of the crowd, found my train, boarded and then took a BIG sigh of relief - I was headed back home! I felt safe! Then, all of the lights went out and over the loud speaker a voice came on saying to Exit the train, to walk quietly, and exit Penn Station. I exited the train and saw Police Men and Bomb sniffing dogs everywhere.
I am not a very trusting person - but for some reason during this chaotic mess i started to talk to this older gentleman that lived in Jersey. He was a lawyer in New York, also on the train with me trying to get home. Little did we know we'd be stuck in the city all day long. He took me under his wing(I was all alone in the city that day) - we sat on the street with thousands of other people and shared his walkman radio to listen to news updates. He even bought me lunch. At one point we decided to walk and as we made our way I will never forget this, he said "look" and pointed as we watched the tower collapse. We watched the smoke pour up onto all of the other buildings! I felt such sadness...
I finally made it home on the 5:30 train and headed back to New Jersey.. I rode the whole way with the lawyer I spent the entire afternoon with until he got off at his stop. He is a man I will never forget. Like I mentioned I am not the most trusting person when it comes to strangers; but this man was incredible and really helped me out during this horrible day!
I often think about 9/11 and those firefighters. I wonder if they made it out ok, I wonder if they were killed...I wonder about the lawyer - I wonder if he thinks of me on that day!
Do you remember where you were on 9/11?

365 Day Project

So I am thinking about doing the 365 Day Project.

What it is: Taking 1 photo a day for 365 days.

Why do it: Taking a photo a day is a big undertaking with big payoffs. Here are just a few reasons why you should consider doing it:
Imagine being able to look back at any day of your year and recall what you did, who you met, what you learned… (Often we find it hard to remember what we did just yesterday or even last night, let alone a whole year ago!)
Your year-long photo album will be an amazing way to document your travels and accomplishments, your haircuts and relationships. Time moves surprisingly fast.

Now I just need to pick a date to start and commit and go from there!! I think this could be an awesome thing to do. I may even make a new blog just devoted to this... Hmm.... We'll see!! But I def think it's such a cool and amazing idea.. and something I'm sure I will LOVE looking back on?

What do you think?

Are My Friends Gone? and an update!

I have been such a BAD BAD blogger.. I guess it was my turn for losing that Bloggy Feeling! I just wasn't spending a lot of time on the computer and I wasn't really feeling like posting! I really enjoyed my summer and spent a lot of time outside with Lola and recently I started back to work which gave me even less time! **Big Sigh**
But hopefully now that I am back in the groove of things I will start to gain a little more free time to post some stuff and re-enter the bloggy world. I just hope I didn't lose all of my followers and readers :(
That would make me really sad.. Though I haven't posted I still read blogs and keep up to date with everyones posts, I just haven't been commenting! But I promise to start soon..

So things have been really good in these parts. The renovation in Brian's building should be completed in about a month or so, give or take a little.. It's crazy because I never thought that broken down, skeleton of a building would ever take shape. It has been 3 years in the making... If you don't know what I'm talking about I'll explain.

Brian and his brother have owned this building(2 finished commercial spaces on the 1st floor, which are rented) and 4 unfinished apartments on the 2nd and 3rd floors.. He has been working on them for 3 years doing a little bit at a time when the money was available... Now he has been concentrating on them and they will be done SOOOO soon.. and I can't wait! Once they are rented I can see the stress in Brian disappear and then hopefully we can move forward.. Woo-Hoo... I'm just so happy for him but this was something weighing so heavily on him.. And now to have it almost done and rented is HUGE!!!!

We were talking about how exciting of a time it's going to be once it is rented and how nice it will be for him to be bringing in extra gauranteed money... He told me that in the Spring we'll take a nice relaxing VaCay... I told him I liked sparkly jewelry, especially ones you can wear on your left ring finger, lol....

New Kicks

These are my new sneakers... And I love 'em!! I've been needing new sneakers and Brian bought these for me, we picked them out together!!
We actually ordered them from PiperLime. Have you ever been to PiperLime? They have really great deals on all different kinds of shows for Women, Men, and Children. They also have some really cute handbags... Also, if you Google Search coupon codes you'll be able to find an extra deal. I found a $15 off coupon. Gotta love it!!
Happy Shopping or Browsing...

Back to School Blues... AGAIN!

I have a severe case of the blues.......
It's the," I have to go back to school and I hate it" blues...
This summer I truly enjoyed the quiet time... And all of my time with Lola.. It was soo awesome being away from work...
So now I've started the countdown til the last day of school, lol.. 10 months and counting......

Classes begin on Monday and I am NOT looking forward to it. I guess I just need to get back in the swing of things right? I need to get back to a routine. And i'm nsure the sooner i do the easier it'll be, for me and for Lola, lol.. Lately i've been thinking about getting a pet sitter/dog walker for 2 days a week so Lola is completely bored every day all day. I can come home for lunch but not every day and right now Brian is working local which is good cause he can come home. But some of the girls i work with use this lady that they really like and really trust, which I feel is very important. And she only costs $15.00 for the entire hour. I thought that was a very fair, resonable price. Not like the $18.00 for the half hour the lady down the street wanted! I thought that was a rip off... So we'll see.. Maybe i'll get her to walk and play with Lola once the weather cools down a little. Bulldogs don't do well in the heat at all so right now it would be a waste! And I don't want to pay someone to watch Animal Planet with her for the entire hour, lol.. I will keep you posted!

So as the summer comes to an end I look back at all the fun times we had this summer" relaxing on the beach, taking Lola for late night walks, BBQs with friends, early day Pina Coladas, and days off. I guess now I'll be looking forward to holidays off and next years summer break!

I hope everyone enjoyed their summer... It's Back to School time baby! Ughhh.....

Puppy Review & an AMAZING GIVEAWAY

Lola and I recently received some toys and lots of all natural dog food & treat samples from an AWESOME store - Luke's All Natural Pet Food!! If you haven't already checked them out please do so

The Jolly Teaser Ball is such a great toy for dogs of any age. It is the only toy that keeps Lola occupied for hours. She is determined to get the ball on the inside. And it is very durable! Lola loves to chew and this toy can withstand the constant chewing. I highly recommend the Jolly Teaser Ball.. Not only will it keep your dog entertained but it will give them lots of exercise which is great on a rainy day!!

Then there was this AWESOME toy.... Lola really, really loved the Lion Squeaky Squiggker. . What I think she really loves about it is the fact that the arms and legs and very long and that they each have a squeaker in them. She loves when I drag it along the floor so she can chase it. It is made out of a very durable nylon material that can really withstand her strong teeth. Bulldogs love to chew and this is a great toy for her. Not only is it cute but a great toy to keep her entertained for a long time.

Lola also received a Sampler Pack that had some great food and treat samples that she really loved! It was great because it gave me the opportunity to try different foods and treats to see exactly what she likes and does not like. Loloa is a treat girl, she loves her cookies and treats. She really enjoyed Zuke's Jerky Naturals in Lamb. She also loooved Flying Basset Organics Super Hero Treats - Plant Cell Supplements. Those treats were actually for both dogs and cats. Her favorite food out of the pack was the Orijen Puppy Formula kibble. It is a grain free food which is very, very important. It contains 75 % premium animal ingredients and 25% fruits, veggies, and botanicals.

PILLOWS: Yay or Nay?!?

So you know Brian and I moved into our new place back in April. In May we bought our new couch from Macy's furniture and I love it.. It's awesome. I saw pillows from Macys that i really, really liked but couldn't bring myself to spend $125 for 1 pillow. It's just way to much $$, eventhough they were perfect. Brian and I have decided to to a beachy theme throughtout the place since we are living at the Beach. We have done, brown, white, light blue, and creme throughtout the apartment. So for months I have been searching and searching for the perfect pillows but couldn't find anything that I liked or I would find something I loved and it just didn't match. I looked in tons of stores and online at tons of reputable sites.
I was looking for to get something blue to coordinate and we couldn't find anything...

Yesterday while I was suppossed to be shopping for a gift for someone else I decided to stop in the pillow section of the store. I saw these pillows (see below).
I think I like, I think I may even really like them, but I'm not too sure. And I know, I know - I'm being crazy about pillows. I don't even know why!?! But I found these pillows and they were very cheap and are made very nicely ($12.00 a pillow not bad huh).
So what do you think, do you like 'em?
Yay or Nay?

FYI I got the Blackberry Storm and it is amazing!! I love it!!! I was due to upgrade and with my Blackberry Pearl on the fritz I decided to go for it.. For all of you that say it is hard to use you've never tried it, it;s easy, lol!!!
I know it's a short post but i need to figure out all the new stuff on this phone!!

Blackberry Storm - Pro or Con

So I currently have a Blackberry and I looooooove it! I love everything about it except for the fact that it is getting a little old and a little beat up. I have the Blackberry Pearl and was thinking about upgrading to the Storm but have heard soooooo many mixed reviews on it. So I thought to ask you guys. Have you heard anything on this phone? Give me the good and the bad? I really want to hear from people that have had experiences with it or know someone who has. It's a big strp to upgrade your phone cause with upgrading comes learning and getting acquainted with all of the new things which can be one big pain in the ass. So before I go and splurge let me know what you think! I really REALLY want the IPhone but Verizon doesn't carry them....

New Show - Nurse Jackie

Have you seen the new show Nurse Jackie on HBO?
I've been watching them OnDemand as they come on and I am really liking it. I wouldn't say I love the show but I'm really digging it!! I always liked Edie Falco when she was in The Sopranos so i figured I'd give this show a try. Besides, I love watching DVR'd or OnDemand shows because I can watch them at my own pace. I really love getting up early with Lola, making a cup of coffee, and cuddle with her as I watch my shows!!
What is it with me and ER/Hospital dramas? I just love 'em!
Here is a little bit abour Nurse Jackie:
Nurse Jackie Peyton is far from ordinary. As an ER nurse, she navigates the rough waters of a crumbling healthcare system, doing everything she can to provide her patients with the best care possible. Whether she’s lighting into a smug doctor for failing to heed her advice, or stealing a fat money clip from a man who stabbed a prostitute and giving it to a pregnant widow, or forging the organ donor card of a man who just died, Jackie Peyton is compelled to make sense of the chaos and to level the playing field whenever she can. Right or wrong, it’s Jackie’s brand of justice all made that more manageable by a daily diet of prescription pain medication.

Check it out on Showtime, Monday Nights @ 10:30.... It's pretty good!

Stolen English Bulldog Puppies...... HELP!!!!!!

Below are 2 pictures of Lola's brother & cousin that were stolen from the breeder's house last Thursday in Freehold, New Jersey.
They were stolen from the front of their house.
There is a $5,000 reward for their safe return.

I know a lot of you reading my blog don't live in NJ or the surrounding area but MANY OF YOU DO!!! I check my Google Reader everyday and a TON of people are from NJ, NY, & PA...




Oliver was someone's puppy. The breeders were petsitting him while his very, VERY now devastated owners were on vacation. They want him back - no questions asked just returned safely.

THIS IS OLIVER - Oliver is a 14 week old English Bulldog Puppy
THIS IS HARLEY - Harley is an almost 12 week old English Bulldog puppy.
Brian and I actually named Harley! We really loved him as well but really wanted a girl. If we had more room we would have bought him too!! I feel so sad and hope they are ok!!

The Bachelorette - Who Will She Pick?

So by now I'm sure you all know how much i LOVE bad reality TV... I love love love it! I don't know why. I know most of it is fake, but it entertains me.... especially The Bachelor & The Bachelorette.. I watch them all and I love them all... And I'm usually good at picking the boys that will make it to the end... I love seeing the exotic places they travel too, the beautiful dresses they wear, the good dinners they eat, and all of the amazing dates they go on.. It's a lot of eye candy, especially when there at 25 hot guys (well they are not all hot, but most.)
I really like Jillan this season.. She seems so nice and like such a real girl....

So who will she pick?
Kipton or Ed

TGI The Weekend.. Almost..

I'm sooooooo happy it's Friday and that the weekend is almost here...Brian has been so busy and we've been on different schedules this week that we really have spent much time together. So tonight and the entire weekend we can spend some quality time together and just relax.

Saturday Plans

Go to the beach, go for a ride on the Harley (weather permitting), attend a 1st B-day Party, Have dinner & drinks with good friends.

Sunday Plans

Going to the beach, and RELAX ALL DAY LONG.

I am sooo happy we have no plans for Sunday. I love days when we can just relax. Since we are living right on the beach we can go back and forth.. Brian and I don't like staying at the beach alllll day long. We both get bored so we do like an hour at a time. Which is good especially since we got Lola. We go back and forth, take her out, get some lunch, have a few drinks. It really is a good situation and so conveniant especially since beach parking is always crazy!!

What about you? Any big plans this weekend?

Whatever you do I hope it's a good one! ENJOY :)

A Different Me!

So i really think I need to change my way of thinking and the way I act.
I'm going to rant for a quick minute so stay with me.
I like to think I'm a really nice person. I have a HUGE heart, I'm caring towards others, Infact I tend to put everyone else before myself. And I think that's where my problem starts.
I'm a pleaser and I love to do things for others. But i start to get upset because people don't really ever seem to return the favors. I mean i don't expect people to do anything for me I guess it would just be nice every now and then for someone to think about me the way i think about them. I don't look for big things just the simple things!!! The simple things sometimes make all the difference in the world.
Maybe I'm feeling a little sad today, a little stressed, a little out of it... I don't know why!! I'm missing something but i can't quite put my finger on it... Anyway i hope I figure it out soon or I'm going to be washing a lot of wine glasses. Red wine usually solves the problem, no it usually makes it feel better, at least for the night!!
