Hello Friends, I hope you all had a wonderful and restful long holiday weekend!

Today the weather didn’t cooperate so I didn’t get a chance to sit by the pool, so instead I watched “The Haves and Have Nots” marathon on OWNTV Network and worked on my Blog with next week’s posts.

Hello Friends and Happy Saturday

Hubby and I are enroute to New Rochelle, NY to attend the wedding of my cousin Kyton and his fiance’ Shivon…hey guys we are on our way!

 

Unfortunately, we will be missing Middletown’s Annual Old Tyme Peach Festival which is a major event for our little town. I know this year it will be bigger and better than last with perfect weather!

Here is my review from last year’s Middletown Peach Festival 2012

I hope you have a wonderful weekend and I’ll see you on Monday with some exciting news!

Hello Friends and Happy Tuesday!

What in the world happened to June – it just flew by without saying “Goodbye” or anything!  Before I knew it, it was July and my second month of Nutrisystem foods had arrived before I posted the results on Day 28.

Take a look back, this was me on Nutrisystem – Day 1.

Here I am on Day 39 ….

Now I am back on the program, we will be attending a Wedding in August and I want to lose another 5 pounds.  I am  eating my Nutrisystem meals, doing a little more exercise and there’s no more long holiday weekends so I should be fine…huh, what…oh the wine….nevermind…that is all!

Are you a Winer – do you like trying new Wines – if so, I want your Wine Winning recipes!

I am not a wine connoisseur nor do I don’t spend a lot for a bottle of wine.  I am a sucker for a deal and love fun colorful bottles, and this is where I shop on FriYays after work.

Smirnoff Ice has a new flavor Peach Bellini, although not a wine, it is one my summer favorite drinks

 Last weekend I added Peach Bellini Ice to Talenti Alphonso Mango Sorbetto and topped it with Whipped Cream

On Thursday night, The Delaware Financial Literacy Institute hosted a “Green Tie Friendraiser” at The Chase Center on The Riverfront.  The “green themed” event began at 6:00 p.m. and as guests mixed and mingled waitstaff presented trays of succulent Hors D’Oeuvres which included a Crab-Avocado Salad Wrap; Grilled Tenderloin Crostini with Brie; Applewood Smoke Bacon Wrapped Shrimp; Caribbean Coconut Chicken with Mango Sauce; Mini Cheeseburger Sliders and Vegetarian Vietnamese Spring Rolls.

On each table there was a “What’s Your DFL-IQ” sheet that contained clues about the program, completed forms were then entered into a drawing for a chance to win a Gift Card with Travel Mug or a Basket of Wines.  The mellow sounds of A-Z Music was heard as they played smooth Jazz throughout the evening.  Mary Caraccioli, The Money Confidant, began the presentation with the history of DFLI, a not-for-profit organization that provides FREE financial literacy programs and the importance of the local business support.  Emilio Cooper, Board President and a rep of Citizen’s Bank, a Corporate Sponsor also spoke and announced that DFLI had recently received the 2013 Excellence in Literacy Award – Non Profit.  Ronni Cohen, Executive Director also spoke briefly and introduced her small, hardworking staff as well as a video that contained testimonies and accolades from several participants and instructors who were also present at the evening’s event.

The highlight of the evening were the eloquent remarks from Victoria Acosta, she and her sister Samantha are “smallpreneurs” whose family business, Precious Pillowswas started by Jennifer at the tender age of 10.  She spoke of how DFLI planted the seed that allowed her to become successful and they have been chosen to represent their company at a Christian Technology Camp this summer.  Victoria is an A+ student, involved in sports and church activities and is truly an inspiration to others in and above her age group.

“May your days be filled with success and your nights with Precious Pillows!”

Dinner was buffet style with Nacho stations as well as a Cheese/Fruit/Vegetable and Dip table.  An open bar served soft drinks, a variety of wine, Twin Lakes Winterthur Wheat beer and a special Green Tie Cocktail – Rita’s Juicy Pear Water Ice & Vodka, which was also available as non-alcoholic.

As guests departed they were given a green dfli monogrammed coffee mug containing a bookmark and donation form.  It was a wonderful evening and I will definitely contact my employer to request a donation be made to this worthy organization.

Happy Fri-Yay!

Finally the end of an exhausting week, so ready to sit back, relax, and have a glass (or two) of wine.  Enjoy your weekend, be safe, stay blessed and tell someone “I Love You!”

TVOne just ended it’s first season of their new sitcom, Belle’s starring veteran actors Ella Joyce, Keith David and  Miguel Nunez as well as Elise Neil and newly minted reality actress and home girl (money earning Mt. Vernon) Tami Roman.  The show is narrated by 12 year old Nadka Alaya as Pam in a role similar to Aaron Meeks as Ahmad in Soul Food.   However, unlike Soul Food, this is light comedy, not forced comedy like Roc or The Hughley’s or extreme unreality like Basketball Wives, light comedy similar to Sparks.

As a “fifty something”  wife and mother, I enjoyed this show for several reasons: the time, 10 pm on Friday…end of the work week…after dinner…after hubby and sons have gone to their rooms…after weekly home pedicure…and after the 4th glass of Red Wine has kicked in. Light comedy with an excellent cast of characters that appear to work well together, great guest appearances like Wendy Williams and Gary Dourdan, a show that I hope remains on the air for a long time.

Thank you, TVOne for bringing family programming that I truly enjoy!
