RECIPE: Berry Marscapone Bruschetta #SpuntinoWestbury

Spuntino_Stawberry

One of my new favorite restaurants is Spuntino’s Wine & Tapas Bar in Westbury.  If you’ve been following me on Instagram or Twitter, you know I am there ALL the time. I was super sad on a recent visit to know that they had taken down the Strawberry Marscapone Bruschetta off the menu.  Off course, it’s a seasonal item but that was one of my favorites!  I was obsessed with it. Luckily I was able to easily recreate the recipe, and although it wasn’t 100% the same, it comes close and will definitely hold me over until next summer. Your […]

Sports, the Ultimate Classroom

IMG_3607

Guest Writer and Momma-to-be, Latasha Pamphile got to attend a fabulous Mom’s Football Clinic at the NY Giants Quest Diagnostics Training Center at MetLife Sports Complex. Sponsored by the NY Giants and Bounty Paper Towels,  thanks to Suzanne Chan, who knew what a DIE-HARD New York Giants fan I am, I got a chance to meet and speak with Stevie Brown, Safety of the NY Giants (!!!!) and his mom, Karla Brown. It was such an amazing experience!  I never thought about it, but sports is the ultimate classroom. It’s so much more than book smarts, but gives kids the tools to […]

The Ultimate #GameChanger from @Britax

Britax Convertible

Why is it that we often feel like we need an Ivy League degree in engineering to figure out buying and installing car seats for our kids? It seems as though we never really know if the seat is secure enough, or whether or not the seat is installed properly. We can never easily figure out where the seat belts go, or if the LATCH system is providing the proper amount of security. Most importantly, many first time parents don’t even know if they even have a LATCH system and/or does the car accommodate this? There are so many choices […]

RUN DIARY: Training Right #VZWBuzz

runninggear

One of my goals has always been to run the Disney Princess Half Marathon. Not only is it a HALF MARATHON but it’s one where I get to dress up and wear a crown! I mean seriously, how fun is that!?! While it was always one of my goals, I feel like I am finally working on it. Ever since my participation in the #MiracleMarathon I have been on a roll! I started out with running 1 mile a day for 27 days and it was pretty awesome! Towards the end I even started throwing in 2 mile days here […]

Slowing down the Electronic Noise

tv2

This year I am making a conscious effort to cut down the electronic noise in my house.  What is electronic noise? All those devices you can’t seem to live without – cellphone, iPad, Kindle, DS, Wii, Xbox, computer.  I know, SHOCKING for this social media mom who is never far from her phone and computer, who is always on Facebook, instagram and twitter. Why you ask?  I started noticing my children were very hyper.  If there weren’t hyper, it was a problem… for them.  They needed constant stimulation.  They craved it.  Always wanting the TV turned on, wondering if the iPad […]

Putting My Best Self Forward #FashForward

DSC_0133

Anyone who knows me, knows that I struggle with being a fashionable mom.  It’s not an innate part of me, and on most days I’m trying to pull off a casual chic look (most often failing).  But I know it’s achievable!  I look up to moms like Audrey McClelland – a serious fashionista with 5 kids!  I think we all were so thrilled when her 5th child was a girl, all that fashion sensibility has to be passed on to one of course!  Vera Sweeney, who seriously I could believe she wakes up that beautiful every morning, lucky girl.  Then […]

Light Up your Halloween with @Energizer #PoweringSafety

capt_america

I never celebrated Halloween as a kid.  My parents did not understand this American tradition.  With ghost and goblins, skeletons, spiders and witches, as symbolic icons and a neighborhood filled with teenage kids up to no good, egging cars and homes all around, and rumors of hypodermic needles hidden in Halloween candy,  it was no wonder why they feared this holiday and had us pretending we weren’t home that one night a year.  What’s a kids to say when their parents vehemently did not allow Halloween celebrations of any sorts?  The fun and joy of the holiday wasn’t lost on […]

Solving the Mystery around Fire Safety

PART_1413217152388_IMG_2019

Just in time for Fire Safety Week, the National Fire Protection Association launches another amazing interactive app made just for kids called, The Case of the Missing Fire Alarms. Kids all around the country are learning about fire safety in school, and hopefully at home as well, but we all know repetition is a powerful learning tool. While we hope never to encounter a fire in our lifetime, safety is key.  This app reinforces the importance of fire safety in a fun way.  Not only is this an educational app, teaching our children about fire safety, specifically the importance of fire […]
