Sorry I am late!!!

I am so behind on journals!  I miss you all, and will get there soon!

Let me fill you in on the rest of the Anniversary celebration!

Hubby and I went to the hotel and it was really, really nice to have alone time!  And, my hips are good, thanks for all the concern!  lol 

Thanks to my parents generosity we were able to do dinner at the nice restaurant in the hotel!  The food was gourmet and fabulous!  One of the best dinners out I have had in a while!

As we were waiting for our drinks, I realized that the Giants football team were in the process of checking in for their curfew night! 

The next thing I knew we were having dinner five feet from Eli Manning, Dave Diehl, and Matt Hasselbeck!  They hadn't ordered yet and Eli said hello to me as he passed, so Hubby went over and got his autograph made out to me! 

Then, as we were waiting for dessert Jeremy Shockey came in!  I ran like a teenage girl over to him before he hit the elevator and he very kindly gave me his autograph, too!  He was very sweet and HUGE!!! lol

We also said hi to Tiki Barber!  He has a million dollar smile and is so approachable!  We met him before and have several items that he signed for us, so we did not bother him for a signature again. 

Needless to say, our 15th Anniversary that was supposed to pass virtually unnoticed, ended up being a wonderful treat thanks to Marriott award points, my parents, my Hubby and the Giants!

Unfortunately, my good fortune didn't rub off on the Giants as a team!  The Chicago Bears routed them on Sundaynight.  Boo hoo!  There is always next week, though!

Since then the week has been busy!  I am sorry that I haven't been online very much! 

Go visit CarnivAOL the new edition is out now!  Thank you, Paul!  You are a great guy and put in a lot of time to do this for J-Land!!!

be well,
Dawn

Dawn-- Popped over from Deb's journal (Frosty Thoughts).  Sounds like you had a wonderful anniversary.  Congratulations on 15 years!  Oh, and my daughter would just get a kick out of your cartoon because she says I need a bucket load of coffee in the morning before anyone can talk to me, lol.  My son will go "Mom, is your brain awake yet?"  Ha ha!  De ;)

Libby would have probably passes out if she was to see some of the NYGs like you did. I'm glad that your celebration of 15 years worked out well. Regards, Bill.

I don't suppose you've ever heard of West Bromich Albion? Lol.

Oh the cultural differences! Your Football is more like our Rugby with touches of Come Dancing.

When will you all start following the 'Beautiful Game,' our Football, which you call Soccer. Mind you, our England side haven't been too good lately.

Dear me! And they say we speak the same language!

Glad you had a lovely time away.
