Mota-Vational Quotes

  • "Life isn't about how to survive the storm but how to dance in the rain!"
  • "The happiest people don't always have the best of everything, they just make the best of everything they have."
  • "Every morning in Africa, a Gazelle wakes up. It knows it must run faster than the fastest lion or it will be killed. Every morning a Lion wakes up. It knows it must outrun the slowest Gazelle or it will starve to death. It doesn't matter whether you are a Lion or a Gazelle... when the sun comes up, you'd better be running."

Happy Thanksgiving!

Thursday was Thanksgiving day, and I have to say, we have so much to be thankful for! Since I was a little girl it has been a family tradition for us to wake up and watch the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. It was truly amazing to have the once in a lifetime opportunity to watch the parade in Harold Square from the 10th story of the Publicis NY building across the street from Macy's. Our window was literally right above Meredith and Matt(from the Today show).It was truly breath taking!

After the parade we went to have a traditional Thanksgiving dinner at Gallagher's Steakhouse, which was fantastic! It was wonderful spending the time with my family, but we definitely missed all of the family we were not with!

After relaxing for a while, we decided to take Riley to Rockefeller Plaza to go ice skating. We had NO idea what we were getting ourselves into when Steve and I agreed to take Riley without Drew and Shelly! We were absolutely exhausted after hauling him around the ice (let's just say 50 pounds of dead weight), whew, makes me tired just thinking about it. =) But it was totally worth it when eating our last dinner in NY we asked him what his favorite thing was and he said the parade and ice skating with Aunt Lana and Uncle Steve! =) Made my day!
