REVIEW: Yo Gabba Gabba! Get Your Sillies Out! Tour

yo

[quote]We’ve Gotta Jump, Shake & Shimmy Them Out![/quote] The kids version of a party in the club would be none other than a Yo Gabba Gabba! Live! Get Your Sillies Out! concert and it’s making its way around to a neighborhood near you. This was our first Yo Gabba Gabba! concert and I’m pretty sure it won’t be our last.  From the moment we entered the very chill Paramount Theatre in Huntington, LI, we were on our feet dancing away.  Yes I admit, even on medical bed rest, I was up and bopping (gently) away.  The excitement in the room […]

GIVEAWAY: Heating Things Up with Honeywell!

HZ-435

Brrrr it’s COLD outside! Winter’s chilly temperatures and icy winds are blanketing the entire country this week. As people turn to their thermostats, some Gender Wars may ensue! Who keeps the house warmer? Who controls the thermostat?  How do you keep warm when your spouse won’t turn up the thermostat?  When I was growing up I was always cold.  My parents never wanted to turn up the heat due to costs and we were often told to layer up.  I still remember the chill.  I’m lucky my husband is a little more accommodating, but when the heating bill comes, we […]

The Art Life brought to you by Blick Art Room Aid Project

20130117-174205.jpg

Much to the chagrin of my parents, I was innately an artist from birth. I was always creating things from simple drawings to hand-making Christmas cards before scrapbook making was even a word. At every turn I was told to focus on the fundamentals, and art was dying even back in my days. I recalled my most favorite art teacher, Mr Potter, always struggling to fight for his talented students who were told… even gym was more important than Art Class. I saw how he fought to get supplies for us when first on the budget cut block was always […]

Bedrest My Way

photo

When my doctor told me that I needed to go out on bed rest, my whole world collapsed around me. Not that I wasn’t already aware that this was inevitable, but I was so proud of how far a long I had come in this pregnancy without having to go out. With Little Miss A, I was out just shy of 12 weeks. With my little man, around 15 weeks it was declared that I settle down for the long haul. In both previous pregnancies, it was a lot easier of a decision, if even at all a decision. I […]

REVIEW & GIVEAWAY: Bringing out the inner animator with the Disney Creativity Studio

 Just in time when the kidlets were getting a little stir crazy this LOOOOONG winter break, we opened a magical package revealing the new Disney Creativity Studio.  The kids were so excited.  What is it?  Can I open it?  What does it do?  Whose is it?  It’s mine!  No, it’s mine!  Mickey is for boys and Minnie is for girls, it’s mine!  There’s a princess on it too!  And then daddy snatched it up.  He mouthed silently, “LIFESAVER!”  After a week of being cooped up, Little Miss A was begging to go to work with daddy and well daddy, always busy, […]

And Away We Go Couponing!

20121217-232710.jpg

So this week began my very first foray into the world of couponing. Taking cues from my dear friend Vera Sweeney of Lady and the Blog and I’m Not Obsessed fame, I set out to save some major $$$. When Vera said you actually have to invest a little in couponing, I don’t think she meant by spending money at Staples on a fancy binder, dividers and pockets. Alas I couldn’t help myself. I got a lovely Pink binder with pretty dividers and invested in those baseball card sheets and coupon sheets. Now that I was set, I hopped on […]
