It is a chocolate chip cookie cone. That's right, a chocolate chip cookie in the shape of an ice cream cone! As soon as I saw that, I knew I had to try it.
Let me just say, the cheesecake flavored soft serve I had them fill it with was also delicious.
What a treat. Some of the best moments in life are those that are completely unexpected.

It's that time of year again. This weekend is the CT Wine Festival in Goshen, CT. I have had my tickets for weeks now and can't wait for noon tomorrow.
Last year was my first time going and John and I had tons of fun and knew we would be coming back this year. It's like a carnival for grownups!
Wine tastings from pretty much all of the CT wineries, specialty food tastings, live music, craft sales, and more! What more could you ask for?
I probably won't be posting anymore this weekend, so until next week,
Kayleigh Apicerno ♥

The other day, I went in the cupboard to fetch my dog a treat only to discover they were all gone!
Fortunately, there were only a couple left anyway. The box was not empty. A mouse had left some droppings in return.
We had a mouse in this same cupboard a few months ago, back when the weather was still cold. He was caught and is long gone by now, so it looks as if another mouse is sneaking around in the walls.
I can't blame him. He is hungry and i would probably do the same thing if I were a mouse.
You better watch out. My boyfriend is not as understanding as I am.

The weather was near perfect and I finally made it to the beach. The boyfriend and I spent all but a few hours together, except for the time when he was at a meeting and I was with my best friend (and her new kitten!). It was good to see her.
But now it is back to work and another crazy busy week. I do not feel that I am "living for the weekend" but it would be fine with me if something exciting and positive happened during my work days. Each day starts to feel just like the day before around the office.
I cannot complain, however, since I have a job and it is a fairly good one at that.

Here is a great picture I took with my phone during my walk:
Oh, Happy Day!

During my 10 minute break, I started flipping through the pages and reading some of the shorter articles. There is magic in hardcopy print. It is an experience one simply cannot have reading articles online. Even the ads were interesting to me.
I look forward to reading the rest of the magazine and marking the pages with a pen. This is something that I have not had to opportunity to do for a long time.

I was pretty stressed at work the other day. I remembered seeing a quote online that said something along the line of "Just smile and you will start to feel better instantly." I figured, what they hey, might as well try it. Almost as soon as I did, it started to work and I started to feel happier.
Smiling releases serotonin in your brain, a chemical that makes you feel happy. That is why this works.
Just keep smiling!

Her full name is Lizzie D. Puppy, and she is a four year old Rottweiler. Kayleigh still says she is a big goofy puppy though! And she is. Lizzie spends her days sleeping and getting belly rubs. What a life!
Apicerno comments often, "I love this dog!" and "What, she's not spoiled. Okay, maybe a little!"
When Kayleigh and Lizzie are together, everyone in the room can feel the love.
The name Kayleigh was given to her by her parents after they heard a song, "Kayleigh" by Marillion. Her surname, Apicerno, is her father's name. Apicerno is of Italian decent on her father's side, and English/Irish on her mother's.
Kayleigh has many goals for her life. She wants to travel, learn as much as possible, become financially independent, and raise a loving family.
