No Child Goes Hungry #FightHungerTogether

momconfessionals

If you’ve been following my blog for a few years, you’ll know how near and dear ending child hunger is to me and how honored I am to be invited to work with Conagra Foods again as one of their ConAgra Foods Child Hunger Correspondents. For more than 20 years, ConAgra Foods and the ConAgra Foods Foundation have been committed to fighting child hunger in America, donating food and investing in partnerships to find solutions that are within reach. Not only is this a friendly reminder of how far I’ve come from being that hungry child but also to be thankful for […]

Mr. Met’s Kids Club is Back and Better Than Ever! #metsmoms

get-attachment

It’s finally spring time and for my family that can only mean one thing: baseball is back! For those of you who have been following through the years, it’s safe to say you are aware that we favor the NY Mets in my home, but as a mom, being a Mets fan isn’t just about the team. While I’m all about David Wright and the Amazin’ Mets, as parents, the game is as much about my family’s enjoyment of a day spent together at the ballpark, as it is about who wins. Being at Citi Field to take in a […]

Girls that Love to Brunch with #AsellinaJunior

IMG_0046

This past weekend, Ava and I got an exclusive sneak peek at Asellina’s new Kid’s Brunch menu which debuts this Easter weekend.  Along with her best friend and her mother, we had been looking forward to brunch at Asellina in the gorgeous Gansevoort Park Avenue Hotel from the minute we got the invite.  Already impressed with their adult brunch special menu, the adults were super excited to bring the kids in on the fun too. Greeted by the host, the girls were giddy choosing their entertainment packs and sat down to personalized kid menus.  We sat back, sipping on our bellinis […]

FOOD FOR THOUGHT: The “Dirty” Secret about Allergies

The Microcosm Within

I was young once. Now, I am a boomer. When I was growing up, I never knew any child with a food allergy. Allergies of any kind seemed rare. Yet now, allergic concerns are frequently encountered. Just a few weeks ago, I was on a flight from Phoenix to Philadelphia. Shortly after the trip began, the flight attendant announced that no nut snacks would be passed out with in-flight beverage service since there was a passenger on the plane with a peanut allergy. After I got over my shock that there might have been any snack at all, I reflected […]

IMG_3523

Spring is finally here and that can only mean one thing: Its time to bring out the bright colors and fresh, new spring clothing. I for one, love to spend time browsing the isles for some eye catching attire that my children will not only look adorable in but can feel comfortable in as well. Last month I had the chance to get an exclusive sneak peek at the spring collections of several brands such as Janie & Jack, Gymboree, Crazy8 and Pottery Barn Kids, and I couldn’t help but get even more excited for the arrival of spring. With […]

Sesame Street Live – Review & Last Minute Ticket Giveaway!!

IMG_3038

Last weekend my family and I got on a train to New York City to go see Sesame Street Live at Madison Square Garden. While I knew my two-year-old would be thrilled at seeing his favorite characters, Elmo, Cookie Monster and all of their friends, I wasn’t sure how my five-year-old would be able to sit through what he dubbed as “my brothers favorite show”.  Not to my surprise, though, he became just as excited (if not more so) the second he saw the first Sesame Street Live poster at the entrance to MSG. From the moment we entered the […]

5 Reasons to Love Verizon Wireless #VZWBuzz

Just in time for Valentine’s Day, there’s no better time to move on over to Verizon Wireless.  I never compromise on quality and service for a cheaper deal, but now Verizon’s making price a non-issue with their best ever pricing!

For a limited time, new customers who port-in their wireless number from another carrier and activate their new Verizon smartphone on Edge will receive an additional one-time $100 bill credit per qualified line.

All the things we did when we dated and it was so much fun to do it again... 10+ years later! #anniversary #bliss #peace #exoticpresidentiallife  Making school lunches will be a new experience for me this year. @planetbox makes it fun for me and my little kindergartener! (Sunbutter & jelly "sushi rolls", clementine, carrots and hummus, cheese stick, and a veggie muffin.) #PlanetBox #planetboxlaunch #bottlerocket #planetboxlunches #planetbox  Beautiful...  4 mile run with this as my backdrop this morning finished with a swim right from our room into the infinity pool @karismahotels #bliss #nokids #peace #TMOM  Private cabana on the beach @karismahotels and my first drink in over 8+ years (no more breastfeeding! - Actual trip goal is to be able to hold liquor!) #nokids #TMOM #bliss #peace
