The Only View is My Point of View with the Panasonic A500

a500

I try very hard to be a practical gal. While I was intrigued by the buzz around a certain “adventure-action camera” because everyone I knew either had one or wanted one, I couldn’t come up with a reason why I really needed one (to my purse holding hubby).  I saw a few cool videos of people’s snowboard point of view, and while it was cool, it wasn’t the most polished and sometimes even nauseating.  How often would a person say, I need my “adventure-action camera”?  I couldn’t imagine spending all that money and only taking it out for use, once in a […]

5 Criterias for Your Perfect Travel Companion #RBHLuggage #TMOM

IMG_0498

As often as I travel, I am always trying to perfect my packing technique.  Traveling as a family of 6 is a feat until itself and we’re still trying to find the perfect balance between checked in luggage and carry on.  One thing that we have settled on is always having one airline approved carry on roller and more specifically a spinner.  I will put everything in there, including my purse.  Being able to roll it easily is a major plus when running through an airport with 4 kids in tow and often one is in my arms while doing so.

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
