^This quote from Winnie The Pooh is one of my favorites. It's always so hard saying goodbye to my family when my trips to NY are over as well as when their visits to see me are over.^

Currently...


Feeling... Happy and loved. My family is down visiting and I'm having a wonderful time spending quality time with my sister C, BIL A, niece A, and nephew M. However, they are leaving tomorrow so I'm starting to get sad.

Reading... I just finished reading Amazin' Again by Greg W. Prince about the 2015 New York Mets team and season. It's a really great book and if you're a Mets fan, I definitely recommend it. The next book I will be reading is A Parcel for Anne Browne by Miranda Dickinson.

Watching... I haven't watched much TV this week as my family has been visiting but I've been recording all of my shows. I watched Survivor last night with my sister and I watched Chicago Fire this morning.

Listening To... Lots of Sam Hunt, Kenny Chesney, Jake Owen, Matthew Morrison, Finding Neverland OBC Recording, Alex & Sierra, Lea Michele

Thinking About... The awesome time I'm having with my family

Working On... A list of blog posts and LJ posts I want to make

Wanting... It to stop raining.

Excited... That my family is visiting and that I have such a great relationship with my sister C. She's one of my very best friends.

Loving... My family/quality family time, being an aunt, reading, baseball, the New York Mets, my daily iced coffee

1. Weekend Trip to New York

Last weekend, I went to NY for the weekend as my nephew, N, was making his first Communion. My mom and I arrived on Friday and went to lunch with my sister K & brother R. It was great to spend some time all together. After lunch, we went to my brother's house and I finally got to meet my adorable fur-nephew, Rocky. He is such a cute puppy! He's a Golden Retriever and he's absolutely adorable. My nephews J & N and I played with the dog, they showed me their baseball and football cards, we played basketball, and had pizza for dinner. Then my mom and I headed to my sister's house. We pent some quality time with my nephew M & niece O before they went to bed. The Communion and the party were on Saturday. It was really nice getting to see my cousins that I haven't seen in a while. On Sunday, my nephew M had a play and he was wonderful in it. We also went out to lunch for Chinese food and went to Barnes & Noble. I really enjoyed getting to see my family and spend quality time with my niece & nephews.

2. Amazin' Again -Greg W. Prince

I'm currently reading this book about the 2015 New York Mets and it's a really awesome book about written by one of the blog writers from Faith & Fear In Flushing. I'm almost half way through it. It's a really great account of last year's team!

1. NY Mets Home Opener

Today is the NY Mets home opener. Unfortunately, it's on when I'll be at work so I have to DVR it. I think the home opener of your favorite team should be a day off work, lol! The Mets are 1-1 on the season with winning one against the Royals and losing one against them. I really hope the Mets have another incredible and amazing season!

Feeling... Happy. I won two giveaways on World Autism Day and it made my day. I won an Autism sticker set for my planner and the person who did the giveaway made a donation to the Doug Flutie Autism charity in my name. The other giveaway I won was a $20 Etsy shop credit.

Reading... I just finished reading A Girl's Best Friend by Lindsey Kelk yesterday. I have two picks waiting for me at the library and I will be starting one of them tomorrow. The book are Keep Me Posted by Lisa Beazley and The Center Of The World by Jacqueline Sheehan.

Watching... New York Mets baseball! Baseball season is back and I'm so happy. In addition to baseball and all of my usual shows, my mom and I started watching Army Wives from the beginning on Netflix. We started watching during the 4th or 5th season, so we decided to go back and watch it from the beginning. It's really interesting to see all of the things we missed.

Needing... Quality time with my family

Wanting... New sneakers and some new NY Mets shirts

Excited... For my weekend trip to NY happening soon

Hoping... That certain plans fall into place

Loving... My family, being an aunt, baseball season, the New York Mets, planning in my Erin Condren Life Planner, watching and making Periscope videos

Weekending: Baseball Opening Day


This weekend was the last one of my Spring Break. 

Saturday was a really fun and lazy day. In the afternoon, I filmed a Periscope video. I've done about 7 videos and it's really fun. My videos are planner related and it's fun to meet new people who share the same hobby as I do. My mom and I binge watched about 6 or 7 episodes of Army Wives. When it was originally airing, we started watching it when it was in the 4th or 5th season, so we started watching it from the beginning on Netflix.

On Sunday, I did some cleaning in my room and helped my mom organize some of the kitchen cabinets. I also filmed another Periscope video. At night, it was time for opening night baseball. The Mets started the season playing the Kansas City Royals who they played (and lost against) in the World Series last season. They lost last night's game 3-4. I'm so excited that baseball is back and I'm hoping that the Mets have a great season! Let's Go Mets!!

This week has been my Spring Break. I've gotten some things done in my room such as going through my closets and donating clothes. I've done some shopping and spent lots of quality time with my mom. Today, we went and saw My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 and it was really cute! It's been a really fun and relaxing Spring Break.

Tomorrow is World Autism Day. I have Asperger's and this day is very special to me. I love anything that spreads awareness for Autism and Asperger's and this day was created just for that!
