If you haven’t been to the Poconos recently, you just might want to take a visit. It’s most certainly not the Poconos I remembered as a child and Camelback Mountain is beyond amazing! Only 90 minutes away from New York City, they have so much to offer.

I recently got a private hardhat tour of the facilities and while […]

Take in the Vista with @CarnivalCruise Lines

CarnivalVista_01_LR

Like many New Yorkers this winter, I am constantly dreaming about getting out of this frigid cold and taking my family to a beautiful and relaxing place. While doing dishes I often catch myself staring out of the kitchen window and can almost picture myself sitting by a pool, admiring the views around me while my kids are having fun and being well taken care of. The busier life gets, the more I know we could really use a get-away. When I heard that Carnival Cruise Lines was unveiling a new ship, I couldn’t help but feel the excitement. My […]

Right inside the app you can view your bills and payment history as well as get a snapshot of all your services including the phenomenal My Rewards+ where you can check your current points and ways you can score more points! Recently our FiOS Gateway router got an amazing and yet stealthy upgrade and through […]

Adopt US Kids: Foster Love this Holiday Season

adoptUSKids

Christmas is the best when you have kids. They seem to feed off each others’ excitement and wonder. The lights, the sparkles, the gifts…it’s almost too wonderful to contain. Sure, there’s still the chasing and messes and craziness, but at the end of the day, there’s nothing better than making cookies and drinking hot chocolate by the tree with your kids snuggled next to you. The older they get, the more Christmas memories you make, and the more we reminisce and build on that magic year after year. For 402,000 kids in the foster care system, and 102,000 who are […]
