And, that was July.......



A month filled with beautiful faces and memorable places......




Wine on the porch? Perfect partners for a hot July night!
(honestly, the dress made sense when I put it on that night....not so much in this pix...but, realllly....it is a great dress...a bit funky and fun but great, nonetheless....and it looked good in the mirror...damn my camera!!!)
Oh, and what's July without a little porch sitting....with glass of wine close by????
(yes, you caught me with my contraband smokes....)
And, another new pair of red shiney shoes?
(YES, I did need another pair....I swear!)


Yes, this is what rockin' July in Judiland looks like!
(I'm in a rocking chair...in July.....get it?)

And, it definitely wouldn't be a great July without a girls day out.......with my dear, dear college roomies and our sweet daughters....
(we were channeling Bahama Mamas and yes, I know....these girls are gorgeous!)


Believe me, you'd be checking me into the funny farm if I didn't get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life to get some extra time relaxing with our wonderful kids!
(I take no responsibility for my son's t-shirts.....just sayin'...)

And, as much as it's a shocker.....we got them to dress up for a special night out..TOGETHER! Their smiles make me smile....
(trust me, they looked exactly alike as babies....)


And, how about that little July romp in a quaint little town with my cute fella?
(we find a Starbucks everywhere! Truth be told....if you don't have a Starbuck's, we ain't coming to visit....)
And, let's not forget about that fun night out in Bloomfield NJ with la famiglia....
(everyone else is blurry due to wine....)
Or, that visit to Hoboken to see the Cake Boss.....
(we never got in the place but we didn't want a cake anyway....)
Or that quick lunch in West Orange.....
(yes, I dragged him to another Irish Pub.....)

Or shedding those tears.......
(happens everytime I see a bride with her daddy....)
Or my guy and I dressing up......
(my Leopard print dress with the perfect matching clutch and his pink tie.....we couldn't have planned it.....and we didn't!!!)


Or having the chance to be reminded that love is grand.....
(truly, madly, deeply....and, isn't that cake amazing?)

And, last but not least.....we even did some celebrity stalking in July!
We went on a little book tour with our favorite New Jersey Housewife!!!
How could we not love her? She wrote the book Skinny Italian.....
(if it wasn't for Toni, I would have never known the joy......)



Yes, that was July......
