Why you should VOTE!!!

November 8, 2016

Every time there is an election, I get excited. We live in a country where we are free to choose our government officials – the very people who will make decisions that impact our lives on a daily basis. We are also free to speak our minds and share our thoughts and feelings on each […]

Opening Alert: American Cut Bar & Grill

February 19, 2016

It’s been a few years since we moved out of New York City and we are still discovering the New Jersey dining landscape. To say it doesn’t compare to NYC is hilarious, I mean who are we kidding??? In a one block radius, NYC beats the dining options of most states, if not countries! Needless […]

5 Tips to Cultivate Gratitude

November 5, 2014

I was all caught up in the little stuff. The minutiae. This one was pushing my buttons. The other one was constantly whining. I hit a low point a few weeks ago when I completely lost it on my six year old. She didn’t want to go to bed. When I finally tucked her in, […]

I think you’re going to love me today. Frozen is coming to a town near you…ON ICE! Can there be anything better than Frozen on ICE??? I just love saying that! Gotta hand it to the folks at Disney – when they have a cash cow, they pull out all the stops and MILK IT. […]

Frozen + Passover = Chozen

April 9, 2014

I think I may have mentioned that this household is OBSESSED with the movie Frozen. We listen to the soundtrack at least once a day, and the movie gets a good 5-6 runs per week. We have even renamed our daughters Belsa and Annya. We are now in the midst of preparation for Passover. We […]

HAPPY Hump Day

March 26, 2014

It’s Wednesday! It’s Hump Day! Halfway through the work week…Yeehaw! Last night, the girls and I had a dance party. We blasted some tunes and got our groove on right before bathtime. It was so much fun – full of giggles, silly dance moves and jumping. Mind you, this is not always how things go […]

February 21, 2014

I don’t know about you, but by the time it’s Friday, I’m pretty gosh darn tired. The last thing I want to do is slave over the stove for hours. I still want something healthy and delicious, and I want it now. Enter, my first (easy)… Friday Night Fix: Baked Rigatoni with Roasted Broccoli and […]
