Don’t Hate Me Because I’m Tropical

What child of the 70s didn’t secretly hope to one day travel to a magical island where dreams could become reality? Hope to be greeted by a suave man named Mr. Roarke and his trusty little sidekick Tattoo. Hope to have all their wishes fulfilled and hope they didn’t come at a price…   Because […]

Life Is Most Certainly Better With Pets

Better With Pets Summit

If you could talk to your pet in a way that you knew they would understand, what you would say? I’m might say something like, Hey Layla, could you please stop chewing everything in the house? But I’d also say something like, Hey Beamer, I never thought I’d love another cat the way I loved […]

Blogger Bash NYC: Mom’s Day Out

IMG_2542

While nobody emailed me last week wondering where my Field Trip Friday post was, I know it was on your mind. You were wondering why, if I promised to take my son on a fabulous (used loosely) excursion every week to make the most of summer, there was no post last Friday. My Field Trip […]

For Those of You New to The World of Fadra

All Things Fadra

I’m so stressed about the upcoming week. Not only am I continuing to tear apart every single drawer/cabinet/closet in my house in an attempt to live with less stuff but I’ve got a major project and several sponsored posts all due in the next two weeks. In addition to that, I’ve got two scheduled trips. […]

Lessons My Son Learned At Tuckerton Seaport

DSC05259

At seven years old, I’m starting to realize my son is spoiled. I don’t mean in a disciplinary way. He has manners and is generally polite. He also has a lot of stuff but let’s face it – that’s the plight of the only child. When I say “spoiled,” I’m realizing that he hasn’t been exposed […]

2014 Disney Social Media Moms: Day 4

This is it, folks. The last video from the celebration. And it was quite a celebration. I know there are plenty of naysayers out there. I know there are people that just don’t get the Disney magic. That’s cool. You can just go about your lives. But for those of us that went and want […]

2014 Disney Social Media Moms: Day 3

  The days are getting longer and my evenings getting shorter. So the time it takes to edit a video is getting rougher. Especially tonight. Tomorrow morning, I have to (voluntarily) be up and out by 5:30am. Honestly, it doesn’t matter if I’m on East coast or West coast time, 5:30am is still FREAKING early! […]

2014 Disney Social Media Moms: Day 2

Today was the BIG conference day and what did I learn? A lot. But let me start with the obvious. I’ve learned that shifting to West Coast time and spending a long day in Disney town makes it really really tough to edit and upload a video at the end of the day. Especially when […]

2014 Disney Social Media Moms: Day 1

Here I am sitting in sunny southern California wondering if I’ll really feel the Disney magic here. Even though Disneyland represents the original Disney park, I just felt that it wouldn’t be the same as the massive complex in Orlando known as Walt Disney World. Truth be told, it’s definitely Disney here. Maybe it’s more […]
