On to the next one

Villanova upset the #1 seeded Appalachian State today!  I can’t believe it.  I ended up driving home to watch the game with my dad.  Things were looking really good and then my nephew showed up, I was a little nervous that this change in viewership might change the momentum of the game, but, luckily VU wouldn’t be effected by the arrival of not just one but 3 other fans during the game.


we tried to see how close we could sit to each other for the entire game, fun!


Times like these when you win by a lot makes superstitions seem crazy, but the second things start going south – there’s always some other thing to blame.  Now Nova is headed to Eastern Washington University in Spokane, WA!  They play Friday night for the Semi-finals!!!




After Villanova sealed the deal we did a little Christmas decorating for my parents.  This year they bought a joke of a tree (super small in a huge ceiling-ed room).  It will definitely be a tree to remember.

Then we went to Mangia’s restaurant.  This is one of the main reasons anyone comes home to Slingerlands…







Mangia’s also owns Bountiful Bread in Albany and they make THE BEST rolls in the 518.  Highly recommend it!

I enjoyed a selection of everyone else’s meals because my salad was too drenched in creamy dressing for my liking.  Tasted like a big glob of Coleslaw.  When we got home we feasted on Ella’s special “mini apple pies”.  I will post this recipe in the future.

And for breakfast this morning…








My dad had made waffles and I sauteed a green pear in cinnamon, a little bit of butter and sugar.  








Now it’s off for shopping on this cold and rainy day.  Hopefully we are only people with this great idea.
