My Weekend

**note: pics to come - this is just the 1 i had off my phone**

last week fleeeew by - and this weekend was no different - off and running i went! - got my first beach day in ~ now i have my sun kissed skin *love* ~ lots of al fresco dinning for Joe and I (like all weekend) ~ relaxing at his Mom's most amazing backyard (they renoed it - now there are fountains, a veggie garden, stone paths, a turtle lives in the backyard, fire pit, tiki torches, pool, gazebo's, and all the itty bitty litty things that make a peaceful backyard beyond words! - it would be a great before and after shot)

we ate lunch @ Fushimi again - so YUM YUM YUM
if you go - just be prepared - for 2 people it always costs us $100 give or take
but SO worth it - plus we get drinks!
remember this was where the 2 Mob Wives got into the big fight!

oh in addition it was "Back to the Beach" in Staten Island - so after a day in the sun (cooler packed with beer, berries and hummus) we headed over to the boardwalk to see what they had - no luck in buying anything - fireworks soon followed - and we ended the night with a BBQ with the Cappucci Family!

oh and OF COURSE i hit up my all-time fave HomeGoods in Staten Island - Joe says "we can just look" - few hundred dollars later = THANKS ALOT JOE!

SO much fun stuff this weekend - i have pics to show you all - but of course the downloading part i always have an issue - but i'll get to them soooooon!
