And onto punching Hurricane Sandy in the face, you suck major butt.  You have wreaked havoc on us Jersey fist pumpers.  But that's OK.  Since we are constantly the butt of America's jokes, we are very resilient and will bounce back! We will rebuild.  We will conquer the challenges brought to us.

Now onto the next storm that is going to hit us tomorrow with high winds and rain, please be gentle.  Or you can change your mind and just turn the other way out into sea.  PLEASE.  We can barely pick ourselves up from Hurricane Sandy and you will just make it even harder for help to get to where it needs to be.

On another note, we got our power back on Saturday night. Praise Jesus!  It was nice to sleep in warmth in my own bed. I had to clean out my fridge though. So sad. We tried to restock on Sunday, but the few grocery stores that were open were PACKED... we just got some canned goods.  The hubs was able to get some meat yesterday to cook and eggs.  Looks like it will be a while before we can really re-stock.

But I am so thankful that I have my life.  Who cares that we lost power for a whole 6 days and who cares I had to throw out probably about $400 worth of groceries.

Amidst all this hurricane business though, my best friend got engaged!!!!!!!
Me and the newlywed engaged Raffaela!!!!
I am THRILLED and so happy for the happy couple.  Nothing like engagements to put a smile on your face.

In the end, there bad times, sad times... but as always, the HAPPY times trump the rest.

I'm back bloggy peeps... thanks for all the prayers and encouraging words during this rough time.  It really did help.  Y'all are amazing.
