My Next Thirty Years

My Next Thirty Years
I think I'll take a moment, celebrate my age
The ending of an era and the turning of a page
Now it's time to focus in on where I go from here
Lord have mercy on my next thirty years

Hey my next thirty years I'm gonna have some fun

Try to forget about all the crazy things I've done
Maybe now I've conquered all my adolescent fears
And I'll do it better in my next thirty years

My next thirty years I'm gonna settle all the scores
Cry a little less, laugh a little more
Find a world of happiness without the hate and fear
Figure out just what I'm doing here
In my next thirty years

Oh my next thirty years, Im gonna watch my weight
Eat a few more salads and not stay up so late
Drink a little lemonade and not so many beers
Maybe Ill remember my next thirty years

My next thirty years will be the best years of my life
Raise a little family and hang out with my wife
Spend precious moments with the ones that I hold dear
Make up for lost time here ,In my next thirty years

In my next thirty years


At Midnight last night my 3oth Birthday Extravaganza turned into a Wedding Celebration. I was surrounded by my 3 awesome brothers, wonderful friends & My Love, Paul.  Today was our 5 year Anniversary.  Anniversary 1-4 years was celebrated pretty much the same.... fancy restaurant, fabulous dress, Up-do ( that's prom hair if anyone is confused) and of course champagne. 
Anniversary #5 : Sleeping, Hot tub,  Boat,  Sleeping, Takeout, Sleep.
The best Day.

For Paul,
I love you for all the strength that you have given me. For laughing and crying with me, for playing scrabble even under protest, for dealing with my not putting caps on things & yelling at me  for never watering the plants. Your not just my Husband...Your my best friend, my Lobster. 
Thank you for saying I love you...every single day. 

Love Your Wife (Lobster)

Billy Joel & 30

Hello Blog followers,

I am officially 30 years old and starting it off right. I had a great birthday, brunch with Mom & a fantastic boat trip to Connecticut for Dinner. Don't worry I changed on the boat into an adorable dress & sandals. 

Last night 8 of us limo-ed it to Shea  Stadium, home of the Mets  to see Billy Joel. And even though my throat is sore from yelling   & the gentle men behind me was furious that I wouldn't sit down  ( who sits at a concert?) ..........It was an awesome concert.

I learned a fabulous new game called Liar's Poker & would like to send out a sincere thank you to PETE for the hundred dollars that I collected from him! 

For all of you that say ,"Thirty is the new 20". Yeah, not even close.  I think most people ( like myself ) are happy that our immature, unpredictable twenty's are over.  I think we got away with more.  Having a friend hold our hair back on  a Saturday night bingefest is no big deal....Your in your 20''s exceptable. Your living it up, your still able to chill with the spring breakers. When some one asks your age... "I'm  29" , because that 2 in the front just changes everything. You can still party and get away with it.  At 30 you have to turn the class button up a notch. So, I flipped the switch and  now I will be waking up every morning waiting for  the arm jiggle and leg cellulite.
Don't get me may still see me under a block of ice waiting for my chilled  shot of patron to poor down...but I most likely will be in bed by 10!

Special Hugs and love to Eric & Cindy in Boston.....Hope your feeling better Eric!

Birthday Wishes


Yesterday My family celebrated my Aunt Diane's 49th Birthday! She has been talking about it for months and when yesterday arrived I think she was in complete shock that it was finally here. The enthusiasm in opening her gifts was classic. The perfect present consists of 3 things..Lottery scratch offs, Paper ( she prefers a not pad to write on) and last but not least a yummy Kit Kat Bar!

Now I am approaching my 30th  birthday , July 13th at 9:15 mom will happily go over birthing details with me.. & Yes I guess I am  as excited as Diane. My 20's are over & even though I have many wonderful memories...I am glad that they are over. I am moving on from some sad moments that I wish I didn't have to go through, glad that I got through it and praying I never have to do it again.  I do have 2 beautiful face lifts on my side...I look like I have been botox-ed and ironed out..No wrinkles! 

Today was a perfect day...the  warm summer breeze felt awesome as I was fishing off the side of our Boat ( technically it's my boat since Paul named it after me...The Sea Nag). I started to cry......feeling a rush of happiness that I can not describe. When Paul asked me what was wrong I simply told him that I was Happy....something I haven't felt in a very long time.  My strength was tested &  I am here celebrating a milestone in my life. My health,  my 3oth  Birthday and 5 years married to a strong, loving man.  

Sometimes we have to go through really tough times to appreciate the good things in life that we already have....Family, Friends and of course Great Shoes!!! I couldn't leave out my true love!

Wish me a wonderful Birthday and I'm an 8 1/2 in heels!
