Friday Article in ThisIsTheBronx
You guys know how much me and Tanya love, love, love history! So, I've taken it upon myself to do a continuing series of history-oriented features about great points of interest in the Bronx.
This week, I have highlighted two NYC Landmarks which are also listed on the Register of Historical Places, both of which are located on the campus of The College of Mount Saint Vincent in Riverdale.
More Riverdale Historic Sites and Landmarks – Fonthill Castle and the Administration Building of the College of Mount St. Vincent
The Bronx (The Borough of Universities) is home to fourteen colleges, four of which have NYC Landmarks and/or buildings listed on the National Register of Historic Places found on their respective grounds. With such an enormity of structural treasures right in our own backyard, enjoying a close up and personal visit is easy for Bronx history buffs like myself!
The College of Mount St. Vincent has two NYC Designated Landmarks, both of which, date back to the 1850’s. Located in Riverdale, the 70-acre, urban College of Mount St. Vincent is home to Fonthill Castle and the Administration Building, two landmarked historic buildings. read more

Valentine's Day RECAP
We have a few hours here of no rain and I've got a bunch to do in the garage before those gray clouds darken the sky and the space loses it's light. So I'm gonna get right to it.
Yesterday was Valentine's Day as we all know and as I had shared with you our gang had plans of going as a family to the movies to see "Isn't it Romantic" and going to dinner at Huntington Ramen & Sushi.
Well for starters, the movie was a HOOT. We were all laughing throughout the entire movie. From Chaplin who is 7y to Dave who is one of the biggest movie critics around. It was funny!
Straight after the movie ended we had gone to have dinner and I was starving!!
So of course I ordered plenty and it turned out to be just enough. Check out the pics from HUNTINGTON RAMEN & SUSHI below:
It was a pleasant day and a nice night out with the family.
I finally opened my gifts which were all travel related and I'm sure they are going to inspire a trip or two!!
So excited for Elisa and the girls heading to WDW tomorrow.
I know I'll be jealous and then we will tag team vacations as my gang heads to Tahoe in 7 days!
I'm also super stoked about our upcoming event with Vera Bradley. Be sure to mark your calendars.
Well I've gotta get things rolling before the rain starts pouring.
Ciao 4 Now,
