One for All, the Dyson Digital Slim DC59 #cutthecord

mini

It’s no secret, I am a huge Dyson fan. The test for me as far as suction power goes, is always that horrid trunk carpeting which every tiny little grain gets stuck for an eternity in.  Ever since I vacuumed my car trunk right before handing it in to end my lease, I was hooked.  2 Dyson upright vacuums and 2 handheld cordless later, we haven’t looked back.  With 3 kids, having a vacuum cleaner that you can depend on is so important.  Gone are the days I am vacuuming once a week, in fact it seems like I am […]

This is 36. #Fit2BMe

finish

When people say age is just a number, it must have embedded itself somehow as a mantra in my head.   After my 30th birthday, I simply forgot how old I was.  It’s not often you’re asked your age anymore when you’ve got children.  Along with forgetting how old I am, I also forget how old everyone else is, well except for my children and my husband, who by the way is 1 year closer to 40 than I am, in case you didn’t know.  Ask me how old my parents are and it’s easier for me to tell you the […]

Are you in the Danger Zone? #NYC #knowyourzone

readyny

With all the recent natural disasters, our devastating winter that rendered NYC under house arrest, it’s not hard to believe that NYC wouldn’t be susceptible to hurricanes.  This week kicks off Hurricane Preparedness Week (May 25-31st).  Do you know if your home or business is located in one of NYC’s six hurricane evacuation zones?  Check out www.nyc.gov/knowyourzone to find out!  These zones are ranked by their danger of flooding from storm surge (with zone 1 being the most likely to flood). In the event of a hurricane or coastal storm, residents in these zones may be ordered to evacuate.  I was thrilled […]

From Infant to Toddler, We love the Gymini Developlace #tinylove

20140508_213529

With 4 kids its hard to keep my home from looking like a hurricane that struck a toy store.  I have toys for each age group and I love toys that can cross age groups.  Not just for the bang for the buck but space saving as well.  Any parent of multiples can understand this craziness.  Even if you have the space, too much can make everything look like clutter. One of my favorite brands that I can always count on for that is Tiny Love.  I’ve gushed over my love of the 3 in 1 Rocker Napper (best invention ever!) and […]

{ disclosure:  I attended a #DisneyKids Preschool FAM Tour, where a portion of our expenses and lodging were covered by the Walt Disney Company.  The invitation did not include an agreement for coverage or posting, nor were we compensated for this post.  All images were taken with the #Nikon #D3300, a gift from Nikon, the newly announced Official Camera of Walt Disney World and Disneyland. As always, all opinions expressed here are my very own  } I know many people who get nervous about a trip to Disney. It definitely can be a little overwhelming at first glance but if […]

A Day in the Life of Me #GDNY #MNOMovie

10155985_10152449375645159_1310450403511919310_n

Imagine my shock when I was contacted a few days ago by Good Day NY to appear on their Mother’s Day segment… as a Mom Blogger.  WHAT?!   I actually thought I would have to say no since it was Grandparent’s Day at my kids’ school and I was really excited for this special day for them and their grandparents.  I had it, as always, well planned to the minute.  Drive the grandparents to school, grab breakfast, grocery shop and then pick them up, ending with a nice family lunch.  There was no time for a TV appearance. I thought, […]

Marching to the beat of your own drum with #Bose Soundlink Mini #VZWBuzz

172079_10150134545770159_8353836_o

What ever happened to sound systems?  You know the full surround sound with woofers and giant speakers.  I don’t know how it happened or even when it happened but they have completely disappeared from our home.  It was a profoundly sad realization especially when I’ve always thought our lives should be put to music.  You know like in movies.  Am I the only one that thinks that?  For me music has always been an emotional expression.  Just like Meredith and Christina on Grey’s Anatomy, I’ve been known to break out into a spontaneous dance.  I didn’t even need a dance […]
