Goodbye Texas, Hello New Jersey!

Wow, its been awhile since our last post back in September, 2010.  Rowland and I have been dealing with many changes, the first one being our son Alex, enrollment in the Marines.   He has since graduated Marine Boot camp, Parris Island, SC and is currently stationed in Beaufort, Georgia studying Satellite Communications. 

There is also a cross country move on the horizon for Rowland and I back to our home state of New Jersey.   We will be moving back to Jersey the end of February and are very happy to be returning back to our home town state.  We have missed our family and friends very much and are excited. 

About 2 years ago, Rowland's job took us out to the state of Texas and were lucky enough to have lived somewhere different and to experience a different way of living.  We have enjoyed our stay in Texas, learning about good Texas BBQ and Tex Mex.  Texas is a very proud state and it is evident everywhere you go, what other state flies there state flag everywhere?  We have ventured to all the mom and pop eateries and got a chance to visit local spots such as the Fort Worth Stockyards, JFK Memorial, Fair Park, Dallas and more.   We also have seen the beautiful splendor of farm life with pastures of cows and horses sprinkled throughout the lush farm land of summer.  We will miss the beautiful sunsets and remember Texas in our hearts for all the warmth and hospitality they have shown us.

Going back home and being close to our families makes for a great homecoming.   See you down the Jersey Shore!

We will be back soon with all new reviews from the New Jersey and
Tri-State area with all new food reviews and fun!   Also, from our home in  New Jersey, homemade recipes from our kitchen.

See you soon!


  1. Wow! What a big move...but how wonderful that you get to go home! I've been missing you guys, and I'm glad to hear about so many great things on the horizon. Take care! Stay warm (we are freezing donw in Austin!)

  2. Thanks Monet, We are happy to be going home. We have had some really cold temps also in the Fort Worth/Dallas area!

  3. Welcome back to the East Coast and looking forward to future postings. I am a New Yorker so we are neighbors now:)
