How To Stay Cool During A Heat Wave With Food

Tomorrow New York is supposed to get hit with temperatures in the triple digits so we have to take precautions and try to stay in a cool place and keep the body well hydrated.

I Love Summer But….

When I want my kids to go to bed at a decent time, they don't. Why? Because they say it's still light out. My five year old says "mom, it's not time for bed yet - I can still see the trees.  When it's night time and I can't see the trees anymore, then it's bedtime." WTH? Don't get me wrong.

Maybe I … [Read more...]

I have always wanted to travel in a … [Read more...]

Summer Vacations are Coming Soon

When I think about the Summer, I think about the best Summer vacation I ever had.  It was when my husband and I took the kids to Disneyworld in 2001. We had so much fun especially since we had no thoughts of terrorists.  Even though my kids were only three and five they still remember almost every part of the trip.  We had the best time of our lives.  After Disneyworld, we hopped on the Disney cruise which was the perfect way to end our trip. I think I prefer the cruise over the parks any … [Read more...]
