REVIEW: Annie the Musical

Clarke Thorell, Anthony Warlow, Merwin Foard, Lilla Crawford, Sunny, Katie Finneran, Brynn O?Malley and Cast Opening night of the Broadway musical ?Annie? at the Palace Theatre ? Curtain Call. New York City, USA ? 08.11.12

Who doesn’t get a little nostalgic when you hear the name Annie, a story set in 1933 about an eleven-year-old orphan named Annie.  The minute I saw the first advertisement for Annie, I was humming, “Hard Knock Life”. Even if you’re not familiar with the story line, you know many of the tunes made famous by Annie like “Tomorrow” and “I Don’t Need Anything But You”  I was so excited to see the revival of Annie, sharing this heartfelt, lovable story with a new generation. This was my daughter’s first introduction to a Broadway production and it was the most […]

Here’s to a Happy Healthier Holiday with the American Cancer Society!

Hunts-6845

It’s hard to find a family that has been untouched by cancer at some point in their lives.  This year it hit close to home when my mother was diagnosed with Uterine cancer.  While our family has known its share of cancer, having it be my mother made it extra personal.  Everyone in our family took a hard look at re-evaluating our carefree lifestyle choices.  It’s really not that hard to make simple steps for a healthier lifestyle and step towards a cancer-free life.  As part of the American Cancer Society’s Healthier Holiday Table campaign, I’ve adapted one of my favorite […]

Thanksgiving

© SUZANNE M. CHAN 2012

Yesterday I really wanted to write a post about Thanksgiving. All the things that I should be so thankful for. My beautiful children, my husband, my most fortunate life that I have the opportunity to live and so often feel like I don’t deserve.  I keep hearing the Sandy stories and my heart just hurts for them.  So what am I thankful for?  With Thanksgiving right around the corner, I am so thankful for so many things. I’m so lucky, so very lucky and then other times, I’m just not.  But today, I just cry. I don’t even know why […]

The Wee Generation

With baby #3 on the way, I’m amazed how many new things are on the market and how far things have come since A was born in terms of infant safety and health awareness.  When A was born, words like BPA-free, parabens, phthalates were unfamiliar to the majority.  One of the earliest and most important things a mother can do for their baby is advocate for them, starting even before they are conceived.  From taking your prenatal vitamins, to eating healthier and reducing your personal exposure to toxins in preparation for carrying a healthy newborn to term.  Studies have shown […]

Food Myths Debunked!

mythbusters

Over the years we have all heard advice related to food safety and preparation, much of it from word of mouth, or a simple Google search online. But how much of what we hear and read is actually true?  I was actually surprised to find, I was wrong on many counts too!  With food poisoning on the rise each year, resulting in many trips to the emergency room, much of which can be prevented with 4 very simple steps in mind.  I couldn’t believe how careless I’ve been with food preparation.  Did you know that microwaving doesn’t kill all the […]

Baby’s First Picture

CHAN_C-1a

… the first of many many to come.  Meet Baby “C”!  Don’t I have the most awesome OB in the world, I love the “HI MOMMY, LOVE YOU”  While Baby “C” was a complete surprise, we can’t wait to welcome the newest member of our family.  We’re in for the wildest ride of our lives.  I’ve been told, 2 is fun, but 3 is a PARTY!  It’s no secret that my previous pregnancies were fraught with all sorts of ups and downs but this time, is another time.  It’s another chance to do it better… to do it right.  Armed […]

adult_daytime_drink_1

Fall has definitely arrived if you haven’t noticed already.  With cough and cold season just around the corner, it’s time to get re-educated and form an action plan.  Just in time, Zarbee’s introduces a new Extra Strength line of natural cough products for adults and children 12+.  In responses to the FDA’s finding that current children’s cough syrups were unsafe for children under the age of 4 (2008), one of the countries’ leading pediatrician’s, Dr. Zak Zarbock developed Zarbee’s.   Many traditional drug based cough syrups contained potentially dangerous and ineffective ingredients such as Dextromethorphan or Psuedoephedrine or alcohol.   […]
