...Goodbye Sandy....Hello Halloween!

I really hope the worst of Sandy is over and we can all work on repairing what she left. It’s crazy to think of such natural disaster can shake an entire coastline! We didn’t get hit nearly as badly as we had anticipated, but boy was I nervous!

If this storm had taken place before Lily was born, I probably wouldn’t have given it two thoughts. I am always skeptical about the weather and never really completely buy into what the weatherman says (sorry!)

But not this time! We stocked up on canned goods, water, candles, EVERYTHING! We have a generator that my parents gave us a while ago and I had lanterns all over the house. It’s funny how you really can’t keep the house baby-proofed in preparation for a hurricane.

Luckily, we weren’t hit with anything too major. We have a few branches down but we really faired well against Sandy. It’s heartbreaking for me to see the images coming out of New York and New Jersey. Throughout the storm, I followed Bethenny Frankel’s (from the Bravo network) tweets. She and her family were evacuated from their NYC apartment and I can’t even imagine. I would be a wreck!

I’ve been sending thoughts and prayers all week long to everyone that has been hit. I hope for a safe rebuild for everyone and you can enjoy your Halloween tonight.
Take a peek at our pumpkins:

We're going to wait to let Lily have a pumpkin of her own. She just enjoyed watching us carve. Enjoy your Halloween everyone- stay safe!


  1. So I've seen you've already been nominated but I'm nominating you for the liebster blog award. I really enjoy your post.

  2. It's great that you've stocked up. I have cousins in NY whose apartments have been flooded. Here in the Philippines we get typhoons (synonymous to your hurricanes) every other week but one can never expect how big it will get until it comes. So its always better to prepared. Just this year we had monsoon rain that flooded all of Metro Manila, it wasn't even a typhoon. I'm glad that your family is okay. Prayers to everyone there.

  3. btw, Love your blog and am now following it! I've nominated you for a Liebster award. Read about here.
