Review: Kidizoom Smartwatch from @VTech – The Latest in Wearable Technology for Kids


  At four and a half years of age, my son is just beginning to learn how to tell time. He loves looking at clocks and letting us know what the time is wherever we go. When I was offered to check out the new Kidizoom Smartwatch by VTech, I thought ‘what a great way to help him learn how to tell time all on his own’. I didn’t realize just how much more the VTech Smartwatch would actually be. A wonderful wearable gadget of sorts, the Kidizoom Smartwatch not only tells children the time, but it can also take […]

Reflecting Back While Moving Forward : Celebrating the 2nd Birthday of Our Second Child.

The path on which we grew into a family of four was not the easiest of journeys to be on. For starters, I was ready for a second child much sooner than my husband was and while we were both thrilled at the sight of that positive pregnancy test I think the fact that it happened right away threw us both for a loop. We had compromised on a minimal 2.5 year age difference between our first child and second child but considering that it didn’t happen right away the first time, we agreed we’d begin trying when our eldest turned two.  Just […]

A Very New York City Texan Thanksgiving #HillCountryBK


One of my absolute favorite holidays is Thanksgiving! There really isn’t a holiday that is more about good food (and company of course) than Thanksgiving.  But preparation for Thanksgiving can be quite the undertaking. Ever since my mother in law moved in to help with the kids, she also took over my kitchen.  The only time I really get to be in the kitchen is during the holidays.  Even so, these days I’m more often running around with the kids and its become harder and hard to plan and put together an entire meal.  Its become simply nicer to be […]

RECIPE: Berry Marscapone Bruschetta #SpuntinoWestbury


One of my new favorite restaurants is Spuntino’s Wine & Tapas Bar in Westbury.  If you’ve been following me on Instagram or Twitter, you know I am there ALL the time. I was super sad on a recent visit to know that they had taken down the Strawberry Marscapone Bruschetta off the menu.  Off course, it’s a seasonal item but that was one of my favorites!  I was obsessed with it. Luckily I was able to easily recreate the recipe, and although it wasn’t 100% the same, it comes close and will definitely hold me over until next summer. Your […]

REVIEW: Big Hero 6 #FandangoFamily #BigHero6


GO! RUN! YOU MUST SEE THIS MOVIE!  This is the next FROZEN.  I am insanely crazy about this movie.  I was given the opportunity to screen this movie a few weeks ago and I have to say going in the only thing I knew about the movie was that my 4 year old really really really wanted to see this movie.  I have no idea how he knew about the movie, but he has been asking for weeks if we could see this movie when it came out. Unfortunately, the screening was at the start of his bedtime… on a school […]
