Happy Birth-Giving to ME!

So this year my Birthday fell on Thanksgiving! And BOY! do I have a lot to be thankful for! My mom cooked a wonderful 3 course meal (Red Italian chicory risotto, stuffed Capon since a Turkey would have been too much for only 5 people, and cheese cake!) I got to skype phone with my family in San Diego, saw my Papà, Nancy, Grandma, Brother Nick and Finaceè Kathryn! So fun to talk to them! Tonight (Saturday) I'm having a buffet dinner party at our house and, oh yeah, and I got these AMAZING gifts! ;-)

Yes, that is a PRADA zip around wallet! Two good friends, Marco & Stefania, spoiled me with it!
New Netbook, from which I am posting from! Thank you Mamma!
And my sweet husband got me this STUNNING black pearl and platinum diamanteé necklace!

One thing to another..

I guess it's just in my personality to never "keep still". As a child I was continuously scolded by teachers and sometimes my parents about how (hyper) active I was. In fact, at one point in my childhood I was given medication to calm down (ADVICE- Please never do that to your children).
I now realize that my "problem" really wasn't a problem, because I've really never changed.

I'm always doing something new in my life and can't keep still. Today for example, I had the neatest experience interviewing a friend of mine (Chris Lawrence a well renowned photographer). It was so fun to be on a mini-set and feel like I was an actual news reporter! Kinda reminds me of when I would go to the Children's Museum and play pretend at the small news studio they had set up there! I'll post the link to the interview as soon as it's ready!

I love doing random things and trying new stuff! As I said, it's just in my personality, I guess!

‎"Berlusconi's resignation was greeted with cheers and dancing in the streets, as people waved the Italian flag and sang the nation's anthem."

Take the time to watch the video! It really sums it up....

I am so happy! I feel free again.

Baby Boy Jones Update

My Papà sent me this update and photos, He's already taking this Grandpa thing seriously! ;-))) GO GRANDPA!

Baby Boy Jones is off the ventilator and is eating mother's milk through a feeding tube. They are going to try to bottle feed him tomorrow. The photo is a little dark because there is no flash allowed in the NICK-U and they had the lights turned down. He is so precious and soft. We love him so much. They are saying that he may have to stay 3 maybe 4 weeks in the hospital. Please pray that he doesn't have to stay that long.

Sweet Grandma Nancy and BBJ

A baby is born!

Soooo, my little nephew decided it was a good idea to come into this world about 7 weeks early! Poor thing has to be in ICU and in the incubator for a few weeks, but I am happy to report that so far he is doing fine! We haven't got a name yet, since of course Nick and Katie thought they still had 7 weeks to decide! I was told that there are two names in the running which are Preston and Decker, but I by far, prefer Preston!

Baby Jones
Enrico and I had planned our Christmas vacation around this little bugger's due date which originally was December 18th. We had bought our tickets for Dec. 17th hoping to be in San Diego for the birth! Oh well! Some things just can't wait! So we are looking forward to holding this precious little gift when we get there in December!

(Grand) Papà & Nancy
Look at all that blonde hair! He reminds me of Nick when he was born!
