Madelines Memory

A Little Bit About.....

My photo
Madeline was my grandmother on my mother's side. She was an amazing little Irish woman. How blessed we were to have her. Not a day goes by that I don't miss her. I am the wife of my bestfriend, the mother of four amazing kids ages 25, 22, 17 and 4. I am a grandma to 2 beautiful little boys and the mom-in-law to a terrific man. I come from a big wonderful family. My parents are my idols. My dad was always the silent one and my mom was the "tough" one. I have so much admiration for them and love being their daughter. I have 4 sisters and one brother, but I only have 3 surviving sisters now. My sister Michele passed away suddenly in 1989. I married into an amazing Italian family. I believe in God and Angels, and Ghosts. Not bad ones, but ones that just can't decide if they should stay or go. I believe that if you want something bad enough, you just need to believe and it will be yours. I believe that everyone means something to someone and this life without you would be miserable.

Hello Old Friends

Hello, I know it has been so very long since I last blogged. I just can't seem to find the time or energy for everything that I have going on.
I have started a new blog for my work...hopefully I can keep up on that one at least.
We would love it if you could "follow" us at We will be covering some interesting dental information and how your mouth affects ALL of your body and health.
I will blog again soon (so many new things going on in my life)
Ciao for now, Dana

So, so busy.....and a new grandson on the way

Hello my dear friends...I know it has been ages since I have blogged about anything, but my life is a little hectic-and my 2 year old DOES NOT ever let me on the computer!!
I don't have any pinks to share today, but I do have news....I am going to be a grandma once again!!! We are all so very excited to be expecting another grandson in July. (After having two little boys running around we were hoping for a girl, but now we are going to have 3 little boys....and we are feeling extremely blessed)
Happy Pink Saturday to you all and thank you Beverly at How Sweet The Sound for allowing us to be a part of such a fun gathering.
Happy Valentine's Day to you all

Pink Saturday

Hello Friends and Happy Pink Saturday.

I have had quite a busy week. My youngest daughter turned 16 on Thursday!! yikes where did those 16 years go? Emily is such a beautiful person both inside and out. She is so caring and loving....but she is also 1/2 Italian and is pretty Hot tempered too, just like her daddy!! She decided for her birthday dinner that she wanted me to make home made turkey burgers, french fries and broccoli slaw salad. Quite a tasty meal if I do say so. And on Saturday we will be going to Knott's Berry Farm in Buena Park for the day. We haven't been there in a while so we are pretty excited. It will be little Gio's first time and we keep telling him that he will get to see Snoopy (who is the "mascot" there) and that he is going to ride some really fun rides...which he loves!! Can't wait.
I found these pictures on my computer folder...not sure how they got there, but thought they were so pretty and Pink!!
Thank you once again Beverly @ How Sweet The Sound for hosting us once again and I hope you all have a "Pink" Saturday......

Happy Halloween Birthday to my Dad

Today is my dad's 88th birthday.....doesn't he look amazing?
My dad is such an amazing person. He is so caring and giving, never thinking of himself before others. He and my mom have been married for 68? years and I can only remember them arguing one time (and that was pretty devestating- even though it only lasted about 5 minutes).
I love my parents so very much and I am so proud to be their daughter.
I love you dad, Happy Birthday

Late for Pink Saturday

So sorry my friends, but I am late posting once again.
I have had a hard week. On Thursday I stayed home from work with a Horrific migraine...and I still feel as though I am weak from it. Uugghh.
Well, I am ready for Fall and the leaves to turn....although where I live that doesn't really happen, so I thought these images would suffice.
Happy Fall to you all and a lovely Pink Saturday. (Thank you Beverly @ How Sweet the Sound)

Pink Saturday

It is Pink Saturday once again...and I am soooo ready to get "cozy" in some cooler Fall weather. However, this weekend is going to be in the triple digits again!!! I love the summer, but I am really looking forward to some cooler weather and the holidays!!
I would just love to slip into these Pink jammies and curl up under a nice comfy blanket on the couch.

Or if I need to run some errands, this Pink Hoodie would be nice too.

Thank you again, Beverly at How Sweet The Sound for hosting Pink Saturday. And I hope you all have a Pink Weekend.
