I’m Doing My Part, Are you?

Yesterday was Earth Day so it was a great day for yard work, which my husband and I did. After a few hours of working, we started to get hungry so we decided to go to TGI Fridays for lunch. After we filled our bellies with a delicious lunch, we headed out to Lowe's for some water filters for our fridge and sink. The reason we wanted to purchase water filters is because we want to treat Mother Earth the way she should be treated - with respect and with less trash.  We buy a case of … [Read more...]

Wordless Wednesday – A Piece of History, A Piece of My Childhood, Almost Gone!

I'm speechless. I don't know what to say. I could not help but noticed what's being done to the old Yankee Stadium.  I'm shocked! I had to take pictures while waiting at a red light heading to my mom's house. I knew this day would come but to see it in real life, it's just blows my mind. A piece of history will soon be gone forever. A piece of my childhood will soon be gone forever. Damn, I feel old and depressed looking at these pictures.  I wonder what my Dad is saying in … [Read more...]

Wordless Wednesday – Beeper?

Where I live, kindergarten is only half day so I'm on a search for a school that has a full day kindergarten for my five year old.  I received applications for some private schools and a couple of Catholic and Christian schools.  On one of the applications, I could not believe what I saw.  I have not seen this option on an application in YEARS so I thought it would be PERFECT for a Wordless Wednesday. :) Happy St. Patrick's Day all.  Today EVERYONE is Irish! LOL Enjoy your day! … [Read more...]

31 Days to Build a Better Blog Challenge – Day 2

Today's challenge is: Day 2: Make A List Post When it comes to blogging, I'm not much of a "list-poster".  I make lists (like shopping lists) but not all the time.  However, I've done a few list posts in the past but I only found one.  I had to look through my old blog archives to find it. It was a post that Jerry Springer inspired me to write.  I know, I know, that show is trash TV but believe me, I'm not the one that records it (hubby does). If it were up to me, I wouldn't see … [Read more...]

31 Days to Build a Better Blog Challenge – Day 1

I've been blogging off and on since 2006 but I've been consistent for the past two years and what a journey it has been. I never thought I would meet other bloggers or even go to events in my favorite city, New York City. When I first started out, it was meant to be "an online journal."  Something to keep me from going "insane." Staying home with kids is not an easy thing to do so writing brought me my sanity, so to speak. I still have my first blog up and running over at Blogspot.  If you … [Read more...]

This Mama Definitely NEEDS A Smartphone!

Verizon and JuiceBoxJungle sponsored me to write this post, and they asked me to talk about the ways a smart phone would affect my life as a parent and make it better. For the past year, I've been debating whether or not I should get a smartphone.  With the iPhone out, I can honestly say that I am envious of all the AT&T subscribers but ONLY because they have an iPhone - not because of the service.  In my area, AT&T is terrible.  I've heard from many people that they either have their … [Read more...]

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Just when I thought Valentine's Day meant just another day, my wonderful husband hands me a huge heart-shaped box of chocolates  and a beautiful card.   He even gave my sister (who babysat all 3 kids for me yesterday so I can attend an event) a box of chocolates as well as our two daughters.  Isn't he the sweetest?  He wasn't always interested in Valentine's Day so this was a HUGE surprise.  He always said it was all "too hyped up and all bullsh*t".   So needless to say, his feelings for the … [Read more...]

Last Wordless Wednesday Of 2009

Is this our future? LOL Just kidding. After I parked our car at our local mall, we looked back and that is what we saw. My daughter thought the dog was cute so she wanted me take a picture. Doesn't he look like he's driving? :) Enjoy! … [Read more...]
