Extra, Extra! Are you Subscribed to The Daily?
Good day and how are you?? I kept thinking that yesterday was Saturday because the girls didn't have camp, so now that it is Saturday, I feel like I got a bonus day!
First, an apology to Tanya for having her find out about the photo shoot at the barn with Tedd and Kelsey. It came up suddenly and I forgot to tell her. We talk ALL DAY LONG so I can't believe I forgot that little tidbit.
Needless to say, the photo shoot went great!! It was for Newsday under their Long Island section. I had a wonderful chat with the photographer, Jeremy about this story. He was not sure when it was going to be published, but of course, I told him all about Travelin' Cousins and our Long Island blog page. I don't know who took more pictures - him or me!
Today is a bit of a crazy day. Have to get 2 dresses quickly hemmed (for monday!) that I want to take with me. Then I have to go get my hair conditioned along with a manicure. After that, I want to pack a few last minute items like bathing suits and flip flops for the time we are in San Gimignano, where our villa has a pool.
And when I woke up this morning and saw the rain, I realized, I hadn't yet packed slickers for me and the girls. Another thing I need to pack.
One last thing -- did you ever purchase something that just made your day? Well, my Mac Book Air doesn't have a slot for camera cards for uploading photos. This is a necessity when writing a blog!! So, I ordered this little device from Amazon (a bit bigger than a flash drive) that plugs right into the USB slot, which has multiple camera card slots. I used it yesterday and I have not been able to stop talking about it!!
Now, I'm really all set for Italy since I can use any of my cameras to take videos and/or photos and be sure that I will be able to share any and all with you during the trip!

So glad that I just about finished packing yesterday! What a chore it was! A FUN chore, but still very time consuming. Of course I still have a few last minute items to throw in, but that should be easy peasy!
My afternoon was consumed with being on a mad search for some photos that I wanted to use for an upcoming Throwback Thursday. Quite some time into the obsessiveness, I finally located the album and you'll be glad to know that "all was well again." ;)
During the day, through our texting, Elisa sent me a few of the pics that she shot of Kelsey, and boy were they cute!!
Last night, I watched a youtube video that got me thinking about a good prank to pull - I luv pranks... I was laughing hysterically just thinking about it! However, I was surrounded by a bunch of dull, boring, fuddy-duddies who wouldn't dare entertain my amusing idea.
I'll tell you one thing B O R I N G doesn't do it for me! And one of the BORING bunch, happened to be Dave B.
He really got under my skin.
So now, I'm not quite sure that I want to go out on our "date" to celebrate the first night we met.
I get over things rather quickly, and last night I was over this idea.
Initially, it was such a sweet and even romantic thought. To surprise me with a dinner date on the anniversary of the night we first met. 'Dreamy!'
But then to ruin it by having such a poor attitude. I'm disgusted!
Go buy a sense of humor and then give me a call.
Okay enough with my vent session!
Let me tell you how thrilled I am to finally be going for a mani/pedi today. I just can't wait to show you my "vacation/cruise" nails!!
I also have plans of going to the mall this afternoon to pick up a few extra items that I'd like to take with me on the trip.
Oh, and by the way, PLEASE tell me that you are subscribing to get your dose of the Daily!
We certainly don't want you to miss out on any of the fun Europe updates from both myself and from Elisa!
