Date Night With Noodles & Company

nood5

When MomConfessionals was asked to check out a recently opened restaurant in Garden City, we were all too happy to oblige.  After all, who would pass up the opportunity to try some tasty new foods, let alone pasta dishes?  It was an offer us foodies were happy to receive. I was fortunate to have a private tasting with my husband last Saturday night and I’m so glad that we were able to share the experience. To say our experience was catered to our liking is easy, given the personal attention you will get when you eat at Noodles & Company. While […]

Gettin in the Game with Nerf Rebelle Rapid Red Blaster #NerfNation

rapidred

Growing up in a house full of boys can be tough.  I can sympathize with my Ava when the boys are rough housing, playing pirates with swords, cops and robbers or even sports that simply don’t allow girls.  It’s tough.  Don’t get my wrong, she can definitely stand her own against the 3 of them, but is it too much to ask that she not be “the girl” rather just one of the kids?  That’s why I love Nerf Rebelle and their line of blasters that get girls in the game.  Ava was super excited to get her hands on […]

DEALS & STEALS: Honest Shampoo + Body Wash

Honest Shampoo + BodyWash

One of my favorite brands is Honest Co.  I simply love it for the kids and have recently gone completely HONEST in our home.  Word on the streets has it that Honest Co products can be found in Target, Nordstroms and even warehouse stores like Costco but I have been a monthly subscriber since the company started.  I’ve found products are still cheaper with a subscription and with so many choices in products, choosing 5 a month is a tough one, making the subscription a no-brainer for our family. Have I considered purchasing at a warehouse store?  Not once, until […]

It’s Just You & Me #TargetWedding #Sponsored

© SUZANNE M. CHAN 2010

It’s hard to believe that my husband and I have been married for almost 10 years.  That’s a LONG time.  In 10 years you can fall into a routine with your partner, you can also get too comfortable with one another.  After 3 kids, my husband and I now cherish the few and far between alone time we get.  We are fortunate enough to have family that help with childcare so we can take a quick getaway.  These getaways are a great way to rewind and remember why we fell in love in the first place.  Of course I always […]

Simple Teachings about Simple Giving #SIMPLEGiving

© SUZANNE M. CHAN 2013

I’ve been having an ongoing lesson with my children on being charitable.  If there is anything that I want my children to learn, it’s to be charitable.  In recent years I’ve learned that being charitable reaps multitudes of rewards.  I am a strong believer in karma and what you put out is what you get in return.  Whenever I get the chance to impart the wisdom of charity in its many forms, I accept it. It’s so simple to be charitable and Champions for Kids has partnered up with Dole to encourage community projects across the country benefiting children in […]

Are you ready for the New School Year?!

20140830-730

For the last 10 months I have been tutoring an amazing 7-year-old, aka the Little Miss, who just needed a little extra encouragement to get her work done and work to her fullest potential. Much of the work we did was homework handouts, spelling words, and reading. Once school was out, it was my job to figure out how to keep the learning fun. I was grateful to discover the new game “Are You Ready For 2nd Grade?” which kept the spirit of summer with a sprinkling of learning. I don’t know who was more excited, the tutor or the […]
