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 […]

The Trouble with Wubble

Wubble Bubble Ball review

If you’re a Trekkie, you’ll probably get the reference to the post title. It comes from the infamous episode, “The Trouble with Tribbles.” Tribbles were cute, furry little ball-like creatures that quickly took over the Enterprise wreaking havoc on the food supply and generally annoying the Klingons. They were cute, but troublesome. Much like the Tribbles, […]

When Almond Met Coconut…

Almond Coconut Ice Cream

It was just a few short days ago that I was celebrating National Ice Cream Day. I was testing out a new ice cream ball for homemade ice cream and I thought that if I was going to do it, I was going to do it right. Well, you know that saying… “A moment on […]

Show & Tell Tuesday: Episode 11

It’s getting real now. I’m up to 11 episodes of Show & Tell Tuesday. At this rate, I’m going to have 12 episodes soon! I’ll be honest, though. I kind of ran out of time to do a video at home like a real show & tell so instead, I took it on the road. As soon […]

Have a Ball on National Ice Cream Day!

National Ice Cream Day

Have I got some good news for you… It’s Sunday! And while that might typically mean the day when the weekend comes to a close and everyone prepares for the work week (and in some cases, the school week) ahead, the third Sunday in July stands for something different. It is, indeed, National Ice Cream […]

Field Trip Friday: Pets, Mexican, and some trampoline time

IMG_2458

I planned to have big plans for every Friday of the summer. But the best laid plans… One life lesson I’m trying to teach my son is to go with the flow. It was the primary theme of our camping trip and by the end of the weekend, I think he finally got it. So […]

The Evolution of My Home Style

Living Room

I have a secret to confess. I’m a little obsessed with home decor. Knowing that, you’d think that I’d have all these great decorating posts or even DIY stuff on my blog (because I do actually DIY). But it’s been my secret for all these years and somehow it feels like documenting it all would […]

Field Trip Friday: A world of Hard Rock, Discovery, and very colorful parking

Field Trip Friday Port DIscovery

It start with a Living Social deal posted by my friend Cara. Super discounted tickets to the local children’s museum, Port Discovery, in downtown Baltimore or a greatly reduced membership rate. In the back of my mind, I heard Evan last summer ask repeatedly to go to Port Discovery, which we did. A few times. […]

5 Sports for Kids Who Don’t Like Sports

Sports for kids who don't like sports.jpg

If video games were a sport, I’m pretty sure my 7 year old son would already be on a varsity team somewhere being eyed up by major colleges in preparation for a career in the big leagues. But alas, video gaming is not really considered a sport. And I can’t base my retirement on my […]

Show & Tell Tuesday: Episode 9

Show and Tell

This week, I’ve got something HOT to show you and it’s all because of a book I’m reading. It’s called “Does This Clutter Make My Butt Look Fat?” (Answer: yes). So as I’m going through every single corner of my house, I’m asking some hard questions and coming up with some easy answers: IT’S GOT […]

Field Trip Friday: Sharks, jellies, and an unforgettable moment in history

IMG_2313

In case you missed last week’s post, I’m attempting to have a field trip (re: adventure) with my son every week this summer. Work is important. And I still work. But I’m learning to rearrange my schedule and work smarter so that I can spend more time with Evan guilt-free. Last week, I wrote about […]
