• First Snow

    This weekend, the Northeast got the first snow of the season. It was a little extra special because it was our first snow day in our new home. Coming from New York City, where the snow turns grey and slushy within hours of it hitting the ground, the snowfall was all sorts of magical. The 6 inch blanket covered every… [See the Post]

  • Gift Guide: Boys 8-11 years old

    As much as I love Christmas, as the years pass it gets more bittersweet. Alex is growing up and I know that the years of him believing in Santa are coming to a close. This year we still visited Santa and wrote our Christmas list so I thought it would be fun to share what Alex is asking Santa for,… [See the Post]

  • Practicing Fractions with Cuties #100DaysofSunshine

    I recently partnered with my friends at Cuties for their #100DaysofSunshine campaign. All opinions are always my own! If you ask Alex what his favorite subjects in school are, he will tell you lunch and math. He has had a love for math since before he even started school. His kindergarten teacher was shocked to learn that he already knew how to… [See the Post]

  • We Bought A House!

    If it seems like its been quiet around here for the last few weeks, you’re right, but I have a good reason – WE BOUGHT A HOUSE! We are officially homeowners and even though the house is empty except for some inflatable mattresses and folding chairs it already feels like home! Coming from New York City, Connecticut feels like the… [See the Post]

  • Pomegranate Arugula Quinoa Salad

    I partnered with Bowery Farming for this sponsored post to share how I #EatCleanGreens! As adults, I think we all know it is important to eat our vegetables, but have you ever stopped to think about if all vegetables are created equal? Even organic vegetables can travel 100s of miles before they reach your plate. This is how Bowery Farming is… [See the Post]

Tech Savvy Munchkin

As I write this munchkin is sitting on the couch laughing hysterically at Talking Tom.  Basically its an app for iPhone of a cat that repeats everything you say in a funny high pitched voice. So munchkin talks and laughs and the cat repeats everything, which makes munchkin laugh even more and you get the picture. It really surprises me…

New Park!

The new park is super great.  Unlike most of the parks in my neighborhood, there is a lot of grass, a great new playground just for littler kids and a lot of paths to run on.  I used DailyMile to calculate that running there, through the park and back home will be about two miles.  I hope to be able…

Cake Batter Pancakes!

Since I didn’t really get to spend Mother’s Day with my munchkin because he was with my parents, we had a special Mother’s Day breakfast this morning.  I had the recipe for Cake Batter Pancakes bookmarked for months and I felt like today was the perfect day to finally try it out.  I am a huuuge cake batter junkie.  I’m…

Slow Cooker Salsa Chicken

Today was supposed to be a productive day.  Too bad that didn’t happen. I pretty much sat around all day in my pjs watching really bad tv shows and intermittently napping on the couch.  My defense is that I’m sick.  I don’t know if its allergies or a cold but I really woke up feeling like yuck. The one productive…

Leopard leggings and other subway trends

So my first final is out of the way and I get to relax today before I jump back into studying tomorrow for the next one. Since yesterday was Cinco de Mayo, Munchkin and I celebrated with a Mexican lunch.  Since the weather was really nice after the cold and rainy Wednesday, so I decided to take a walk to…
