Is Summer over already?? (Pic Heavy)

Just when I thought that the Summer would hang on for a little while longer, poof, it's gone!! One week we're having hot, humid 95 degree whether and the next we get cool, breezy nights. Don't get me wrong, I would much rather sleep comfortably in cool breezy weather than waking up having to peel my face off my pillow because I am drenched in sweat. Yes, I do have an air conditioner people but times are hard and Con Edison is beating people up with the high electric bills so I try to use my handy fan when need be. Ok, enough of my ranting...lol. I obviously felt the need to get that off my chest. Must be because I only hit the beach 2 times this summer and I am an absolute Sun Whore. I love tanning despite the fact that my skin will probably wrinkle before my time but hey, who is paying attention to my wrinkles anyway....LMAO! Ok, Ok. I promise, I will stop.

Over the weekend,I had the pleasure of attending two events. On Saturday I went to my friend's baby shower. I was worried because Tropical Storm Danny was supposed to hit NYC hard on Saturday but to my surprise after a cloudy morning, the sun peaked through and made a dreary day beautiful! There were a lot of people there and the DJ totally rocked the party out. I had "Lucy" with me so here a few pics of that day.

On Sunday, we headed over to a BBQ that our dear friends Janessa and Greg were having at the Ross Dock Picnic area underneath the George Washington Bridge (NJ side). Here are some random shots from that day.

hey girly, keep me updated on how it goes for you with setting your cam to auto focus. Trust me, you will love it and you will find that you nail your focusing more often than using the shutter button :)
