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.

I Got Some Fabulous Treasures For Pink Saturday

I had a wonderful week off this week. The dental office I work in always closes for a week in the summer and a week at Christmas. Unfortunately, I was the only one in my family on vacation, so it was just me and my little man for most days. We did manage to get down to the beach on Friday....but it was pretty darn cold!! 67 degrees and very overcast. But the way I see it, no matter how bad the day is at the beach, it still beats a day where I live. ha, ha, ha.
This pink Saturday I am sharing the lovely treasures my sister sent me.....She always has such great things to share on her blog and I am always so envious. She was sweet enough to locate some beautiful things for me and here they are....

This little apron is soooo adorable. It has puckering and the little pocket almost looks like a heart

I just LOVE this statue of the Blessed Mother...the little rosary bracelet has very light pink beads on it.

This bar of soap (which I will only keep for display)has such a yummy Rosemary scent and is very Frenchy

And last but not least are these 3 coasters tied with pink toule (sp). I am one of those people that does not like to untie my little me it looses something when you do.

I hope you all enjoyed my treasures from my sister Marcia (Vintage Frenchhen) as much as I do.
Thank you my beautiful sister dear and thank you to our wonderful hostess Beverly at another fabulous Pink Saturday.

Pink Saturday for My Sister

My sister, Marcia at always has such amazing pink items (along with just about everything else she blogs about). You really must go and check her blog out....I am so very jealous(and she is also having a giveaway of some fabulous things, so be sure to sign up). She is having a wonderful time right now with her son, Frankie who just got back for his 3rd? 4th? tour in Iraq. We are all so happy he has come home to us safe and sound. This blog is in honor of her today. She has always been one of my very best friends and I am so blessed to have her as my sister. She has such amazing talent when it comes to decorating her adorable little "Red Cottage" and she is such a sweet and kind person, everyone adores her. She is an amazing cook and had her own little catering business for a while. Some of the foods she comes up with I would never even have imagined, but she did take after our aunt in that respect (some of us thought she may have been adopted since the majority of us in the family are your common, everyday cooks except for her)
My sister is about 8 years older than I am (I am #6 and she is #5 in the line up and I was an accident for sure), but for most of our lives we have been very close. She was always there for me when I needed someone and I was always at her house- especially when her children were small. She has such an amazing relationship with her kids and they love her so much.
Marcia is the only one of us kids that live close enough to our parents to help them out when they need it. And although we all know how tough that can be... she always has the right thing to say or the right thing to bring when needed.
I know this really has nothing to do with PINK SATURDAY and I really have just gone on and on, but my sister is very special to me and I just wanted All of you to know.
Happy Pink Saturday and thank you Beverly at

What a way to spend a summer day

Oh how I love being a mommy. I spent another fabulous afternoon with my two girls, my grandson and my little man.
Giovani thought he was just so cool wearing his shades and floating around the pool. At one point I seriously thought he was going to fall asleep.
As you can see, Giovani really enjoyed the water today

A new computer, but too late for Pink Saturday

Hello Friends,
I had computer troubles this week and so I didn't get to sign up for Pink Saturday....sooooo sad. But now we have a new laptop and I am on my way to blogging once again.
Although I am not a part of Pink Saturday this week, I did want to get a little Pink in anyways.

Here are two of my favorite little boys in their new little pool (with a pink top ring).
It was hot today and since my grandson, Aidin was over we decided to take a little dip.....aaahhh summer.
