A New York Wedding!!!

Soooooooooo these pics are SUPERRRR out of order, basically the reception is first and the wedding is last, buuuuut yeah, you all get the point!!! It was a BEAUTIFUL WEDDING AND CELEBRATION!!!
I'm happy to say that there is NOW another Filipino welcomed to this crazy-aweseome Italian Family...whoop, whoop!!! And WELCOME ADRIAN, we all are excited to get to know you, and just so you know, I WILL be YOUR FAVORITE Cuz-in-law...Just ask Kevin...theres NO WAY AROUND IT!!! Heh, heh!!! :))))
Soooooooo when the Mangino's came for my brother Abraham's wedding in Bohol, Barbara joined me for CELBEB status in the PI, which is what happens when you have blue eyes there, we neverrrrrr DREAMED that a few years later she would find her own Filipino knight-in-shining-armor in nursing school in NYC!!! (I think that's where they met! LOL) Although, being American, she didn't quite have CELEB status with her blue eyes with him being Filipino AMERICAN, BUUUUUT she DID let him know RIGHT AWAY that she has been to the Philippines...Hee, hee!!!
Father daughter dance, Uncle Mike, my mom's big brother, still got his swag!!! LOL
Okaaaaaaaaaaaaaay I'm not going to go over every pic with you all but the reception was held at a beautiful mansion place, with a BOMB COCKTAIL hour and several courses when it was meal time...I got the duck, if only to say I've eaten duck...LOL
The wedding ceremony was held at Our Lady Of Mercy Catholic Church in my Aunt and Uncle's neighborhood where there family has attended for most of their lives!!!
My beautiful cousins, the Bridesmaids...Cara and Laura....
at the reception Cara said in her speech that she wanted a baby sister so bad and her babysitter told her to pray about it so she did and she said she must have prayed really hard because God answered her prayers and gave her NOT one baby sister, BUUUUUT TWO...Aka: THE TWINS!!! LOL

Anywayz, we're all looking at the oatmeal and the wife says to her hubby, I was going to get this kind BUUUUUUUT....and she starts to say WHY she's not going to and her husband interrupts her with a smile and says, BUUUUUUUUT it's $2 A BOX???
And she's like, Oh no, that's not what bother's me! It's because, AND her husband interrupts her AGAIN with this HUGE GRIN on his face and is like, WELL IT SHOULD BOTHER YOU!!!
Idk WHY buuuuuut it just totally and completely cracked me up!!! Like I can SOOOOO see that conversation in MY FUTRE!!! AHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

Hiking Update!!!

Weeeeeelllll my hiking days are looking like they're over for the next little while!!! We have these huge beetles that would be bad enough if they were just crawling on the ground, that I can deal with, buuuuuut they FLY!!!! if they stayed away from me like bees generally do, I could handle it, buuuuuut nooooo they are friendly, like, hey! Let's hang out, I'll just ride on you as you hike!!! NO, I can NOT HANDLE THAT!!! I'm just like, I'm NOT cool with you guys, WE ARE NOT FRIENDS!!!
I texted Sis. Kathy Mackelhaney, cuz she is like the super woman of Pentecost and Outdoor exercise, well her and her husband are marathon runners and mountain cyclists, So I'm like, SISTER, what do YOU DO ABOUT BUGS??? Or are you just truly SUPER WOMAN??? She texted me back a pic of OFF bug repellent! And I'm like, buuuut does that keep them from landing on you??? She said she doesn't know about that buuuut it does keep them from biting you, which is good enough for her! THAT IS NOT GOOD ENOUGH FOR ME!!! EEEEEEKKKKS!!!
Then I google info on these bugs that look like huge flying roaches! It says that they are ACTUALLY called Palo Verde beetles and THEY ARE HARMLESS!! Yeah, soooooo are roaches buuuuut I still don't wanna be friends with them! It went on to defend them and say that they are just "Love Bugs" these bugs spend the last three years of their lives living underground and come up NOW, to mate (Find love) ANNNND DIE!!! I'm like, OKAAAAAAAAAAAAY, that is NOT making me feel ANY BETTER about these bugs!!! The only thing WORSE than them landing on me, IS THEM MATING AND DYING ON ME!!! EWWWWWWWWW!!!
They're all like, they're just lonely bugs looking for LOVE!!! I'm like, that's NOT LOOOOOVE, I know, i'm SINGLE BUUUUUT THAT SOOOO ISN'T LOVE!!! Try ABSTINENCE YOU LOSERS!!! Seriously, no sympathy for them!!! I think there's a lesson in this, they mate and DIE...THE WAGES OF SIN IS DEATH!!! These are NOT LOVE BUGS...THEY ARE SIN BUGS!!!
I did buy some repel, that is supposed to kill some bugs on contact, Ima try it buuuut I have feeling my hiking days really are going to take a hault till September, since these bugs go away at the end of August!!!
Looks like, I'm going to have to break down and JOIN THE GYM...I was going to have to do it EVENTUALLY for the AZ summer...120 degrees...we DO usually have a few deaths from people that STILL try to go hiking during our summer.... buuuut I'm NOT going to be one of them!!! LOL I was just hoping for one more month of hiking, I had two more big mountains I was really wanting to Hike first...Squaw Peak and I gotta wait...Stupid  SIN bugs...BOO!!!

You know your Italian WHEN...

You know your Italian WHEN...
You don't bother with SHAKING the Parmesan cheese shaker at the pizza shop...
You just take off the top and POUR!!!
Uh huh...Can I get an AMEN??? Or how about when your family ACTUALLY agrees to go to an Italian restaurant to eat, BUUUUT they bring THEIR OWN REAL PARMESAN CHEESE to put on the food!!! Yes, yes, that would be MY FAMILY at BUCCA DI BEPPO!!! One place my mom would ACTUALLY EAT at, until they refused to take TWO of her coupons, after that, NEVERRRR AGAIN!!!! BAHAHAHAHAHA!!!
