Hello, I'm a wife, mother, and an entrepreneur. My family and I recently moved to Jersey City from Florida. I will share with you the lifestyles of the Robinson's from changing diapers, to cooking, to getting my business off the ground, and our adventures of exploring the northeast.

Oh, what a weekend!

I thought I had a weekend planned of fun events for myself and the family. However, it didn't turn out the way I was expecting it to because I got sick. I was feeling great.....well, until Thursday came along. I am sure I caught whatever my lil man had because he was under the weather as well. I was so hype for Saturday to get here so I could participate in the Spa party that our local moms' group coordinated. I was scheduled for a much needed 60 minute Swedish massage and great conversation with the other moms. My husband and I wanted to explore the City with our son and see what fun things we could get into. 

Thursday rolled around and I felt horrible to the point I had to make an appointment to see my primary physician. I called my husband and asked him to come home early because I had an appointment at 4:45 pm  later that day. He was a good sport about it and came home to take care of our son while I went to the appointment. I was prescribed antibiotics for my symptoms and I decided to cancel my massage because I didn't want anyone else to get sick.

Even though I was under the weather, the weekend was not bad at all. The hubby took great care of me and our son. He made sure to pamper me since I was unable to attend the spa party. He ordered take out and we watched movies and reality shows the whole weekend. However, we made it our priority to get up to go to church on Sunday to give praise and thank God for everything He has done for us! Spending time with my family was awesome and I wouldn't trade it for anything in the world. I hope you all had a great weekend as well.

It's the little things that count.....making memories with your loved ones!

Summer, Summer, Summer time!

Today is the first day of summer!

It is going to be close to 100 degrees here in Jersey City! I am definitely used to the heat since we are from Florida, but when its hotter here than in Florida I find that to be a problem. I hope mother nature finds a way to cool us off soon.

This is our first summer in Jersey City and I am so excited to see what the city has to offer during this time of year. I hear that New York has a lot of FREE outdoor summer concerts in Central Park and we want to really take advantage of these types of events. Since, there are no close beaches nearby we will be visiting local parks with water/splash areas. This will allow our son to get out and have fun while cooling off during these hot summer months that we are going to encounter.

The summer also means that we get to travel to Florida for our family reunion in July and Jamaica following in August. We have never been to Jamaica and I am extremely excited to be going for a week to an all inclusive resort.

Stay tuned to see how our summer is going!

Let me know what your plans are for the summer.

I'M BACK!! (Shouty Capitals)

Well, it feels good to be back to blogging! I unknowingly took a hiatus to indulge in my favorite pastime of reading. I know that you all have heard the hype of the Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy. I read the book as part of a book club meet up that I attended and I was not disappointed at all. Everyone has their opinions on this book about the BDSM, but don't let it stop you. There is really more to this book besides the sexual material.  However, once I finished Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy I continued reading several other books, which I will share with you all at a later date. I hope to catch with you all soon.
