Jersey Girls Love Their Barefoot Sandals!

Ahhh…Oyster Fest 2014. Lobster rolls, crab cakes, clams, oysters, beer and…bling? Something I’ve always loved about the festivals in Jersey is that they celebrate small business owners.  We always find interesting products in our travels and if they are any bit girly, Lulu is at the table, front and center, ready to patronize. Yesterday wasContinue reading “Jersey Girls Love Their Barefoot Sandals!”

Download Your Own Sleepover Pal!

On Saturday night, I reached a milestone in my parenting career. I knew the day would come when I would run out of excuses… Lulu hosted her very first sleepover. This was a monumental event, folks. Lots of prep time and a slight bit of panic on my part since sleepovers are all about the executionContinue reading “Download Your Own Sleepover Pal!”

Still Waiting For The Fun Part To Begin

I had high hopes for today. Anticipated precipitation morphed into a 75-degree morning. Got my workout done early so I could gather my bearings before the kiddies appeared on the scene. All packed up for a day at the shore, well before Lulu and I had to leave for tumbling. All of the makings forContinue reading “Still Waiting For The Fun Part To Begin”

The Famous Hervé Leger Bandage Dress…And No, You Can’t Wear Spanx Underneath

In my past life, the one I refer to as “B.C.S,” 60% off and Hervé Leger would be a magically dreamy combination.  Just FYI, “B.C.S.” stands for Before C-Section. Now, those sales only depress me. Don’t be fooled.  Hervé Leger’s iconic “hold you in” bandage dress is NOT a miracle corset, no matter what anyone tellsContinue reading “The Famous Hervé Leger Bandage Dress…And No, You Can’t Wear Spanx Underneath”

Unrequited Love…At Three Years-Old?!

My two little boys are obsessed with girls. Cooper is marrying Gracie and George is in love with Juliet.   What the heck is going on here???  They’re 3 and 4!!!! Just as an aside, Lulu is 8 and has yet to utter a sweet word about a boy.  I hear about how rude and yucky andContinue reading “Unrequited Love…At Three Years-Old?!”

I Can Do Just About Anything With A Smile…Just Pop That Cork For Me, Would You?

Bath time isn’t fun.  It is AGGRAVATING.  And STRESSFUL.  I repeat myself, over and over, and nobody listens.  Corralling two little naked boys while I try to run the water and pull out the pajamas is like trying to corner a rat.  My blood boils and I struggle to keep the expletives locked up tight.Continue reading “I Can Do Just About Anything With A Smile…Just Pop That Cork For Me, Would You?”

Please Don’t Ask Me About The Shower Scene…

My house is crazy-noisy.  Like, ALL THE TIME. My husband and Lulu constantly break out into song…about anything that comes to their minds and at any given time.  Sometimes, they take turns with piano accompaniment.  Angry Bird telepods are forever sailing through the air.  Super Mario 3D World…UGH…the music alone makes my ears bleed afterContinue reading “Please Don’t Ask Me About The Shower Scene…”

We All Have Delusions Of Grandeur…Don’t Be Afraid To Indulge

Sometimes I wish I was more like Lulu. Yes, I admit I’m a little envious of her height, gorgeous thick hair and huge green eyes (sadly, none of which I can be held accountable for).  But it goes way beyond that.  She’s got such amazing self-confidence.  I’ve never met someone who was so comfortable inContinue reading “We All Have Delusions Of Grandeur…Don’t Be Afraid To Indulge”

My MARVELous Universe

I feel like I live in an alternate Marvel reality these days. Depending on the mood of my three year-old George, a.k.a. Tony Stark, I’m at risk for being blown up by his repulser.  And he’s a VERY temperamental guy. Cooper likens himself to Captain America.  He’s got a thing for shields.  Also, he doesn’tContinue reading “My MARVELous Universe”

Daughter Of The Digital Revolution…And Her AG Cronies

Who knew that AGSM would open my eyes to how very inspirational my daughter Lulu could be? AGSM = American Girl Stop Motion = YouTube craze = Lulu’s new favorite pastime Stop motion videos are super cool, if you’ve never had the pleasure of watching one.  Lulu stumbled upon the YouTube channel and has beenContinue reading “Daughter Of The Digital Revolution…And Her AG Cronies”
