LONDON: First Impressions

Growing up I watch my dear aunt take my cousin, her only child, all over the world. These weren’t your usual jaunts to the beach or Disney World. Rather she went to Mallorca, Greece, Spain, the Gallapagos Islands. I smiled when my aunt told me she knew my cousin was no genius, not that she wasn’t smart, but she wasn’t extraordinary in anything that would make her monetarily wealthy of sorts, so she decided, waste not on education but rather travel and let her see the world. I thought to myself, what an amazing gift, the gift of travel. When […]

Trust Merck, Trusted by Professionals Since 1899 and Now You!

There was a time, long ago, before I was in the medical field that any medical talk would leave me flustered and feeling really stupid. I hated feeling like that and thus avoided any conversations that related to science or medicine and even avoiding doctors in general. Of course at some point in your life, you’ll need one and can’t avoid the conversation. Not understanding simple things when a doctor was talking to me and needing to have blind faith that they had my best interest at heart was scary for me. In part I blame my crazy need to […]

Forget Orange, We’re Going Teal

Who doesn’t love Halloween. It’s a favorite in our house.  Having grown up in an anti-Halloween household, it’s been such a treat to enjoy this holiday with my children.  From the time they were wee tots, they’ve been dressed in costumes and gone trick or treating in their strollers, toddling and now running from house to house. Collecting the candies and treats were always so much fun, even if I didn’t always let them enjoy the fruits of their collecting. Once my older son was diagnosed with severe food allergies, I was sure Halloween was done. It was heartbreaking but […]

REVIEW: What about BOB (Revolution Duallie)!

So being a mom of 2 little ones (one of them a newborn) can certainly be overwhelming, to say the least. Between the bottles, meal preps, endless diapers and uncoordinated nap times, planning an exercise regimen for myself seemed close to impossible. I had all these great intentions… I will go the gym and take classes while the babies are in their childcare program at least 3 times a week I will use the treadmill or elliptical that I have in my basement while they nap(ha! Like they will ever nap at the same time) or I will get up […]

ANAPHYLAXIS: We’re All at Risk

There has been a lot of focus on anaphylaxis in the news thanks to Mylan’s NOT recent, but gradual price hikes to a shocking approximate $750 per prescription. While that is horrifying and a reality for many families, I am fortunate enough to work for a wonderful healthcare system which covers my 2 sons’ prescriptions.  Between the 2 of them, we always have on hand 4 prescriptions at any given time. Given Marcus’ history alone, with his over 2 dozen life threatening reactions that have required the use of the epi-pen jr, it’s heartbreaking to know that this start of […]

Chores in the Digital Age #VZWBuzz

If you didn’t get the news flash…my daughter got an iPhone for her 9th birthday. I still have mixed emotions about it, and may go on a bit of a rant here, but there is some legitimate and valid arguments from both my husband and daughter. She was definitely getting more social, many of her friends at school already had phones and she was getting left out of conversations and messages, also Verizon’s new plans which just rolled out giving us more data with carry over making it perfect timing. With our upcoming trip to Mexico, the included plan access […]

Recoup and Rejuvenate with FiOS

First let me tell you that going back to school is NO JOKE.  Add working full-time, 3 kids and blogging and it’s a recipe for exhaustion. It doesn’t stop there though, going back to school also involves no breaks and going straight through which meant a summer intensive session for this gal. Intensive doesn’t even begin to describe what the past several weeks have been like.  As my family can attest to, there was no time for anything other than school, school and school.  It was rough for everyone in my family.  We all looked at my calendar, almost religiously, […]

Get In Touch With Your Inner Spy with Canary

Yes Canary is an all in one security system.  It’s got all the bells and whistles you expect from a top notch security system like: hi resolution camera video and audio recording motion-detection 90+ decibel siren night vision …but it is so MUCH more than that! First of all, let’s just say it’s a thing of beauty while being totally discreet.  In fact for the first few weeks my family thought it was nothing more than an air freshener and paid it no mind. While I should have felt guilty for letting them believe that, it’s not a completely lie. […]
