Hockey In Summer + Fanny Packs + Fashion Finds

Stoney Clover fanny pack

Lots of Friday Favorites to discuss today (how is it Friday already?) so let’s jump right in! Hockey Playoffs In Summer?! Never in my 42 years of life have I experienced a hockey season during the summer. Until now. Looking back at this photo from an Islanders game in December, I had NO IDEA when […]

Forgot The Cinnamon, Trader Joe’s & Recent Eats

Trader Joe's

  Even though my workouts didn’t go as planned last week, my mood was PMS-free! Everything (and everyone) was so much easier to tolerate. My biggest issue last week was going to Trader Joe’s TWO TIMES for cinnamon and leaving BOTH TIMES without cinnamon. I need cinnamon for my oatmeal! How screwed up can a person be to keep going to Trader Joe’s for cinnamon […]

Highlights From The Week & Weekend Eats

  What a week. I feel like I say that way too often but it’s how I feel these days! The fact that we are entering February this week makes me really happy though as it means we are getting closer to March. A part of me hates that I rush the days away but […]

Thursday Things

Have you seen the adorable new ice cream collection from Paper Source? My son knew that I liked it so he made sure I received a few of the ice cream things for Mother’s Day including this soy cream candle! It smells so good and really turns into a delicious body cream. He also made me […]

Thinking Out Loud 4.7.16

  I think it’s great that Amanda (our weekly Thinking Out Loud host) has been enjoying herself in Hawaii but if you want my opinion, it’s time for her to come home already. My days are not the same without talking to her all day long! Saturday night following the 10k race, I had to […]

More To Me Than Running

  Yesterday morning wasn’t so bad. My son woke up on his own and didn’t give me an issue getting out the door. The only minor problem we encountered was him blaming me for not putting all of the new pencils we bought over the break properly into his binder pencil pouches. Where was he Sunday […]

WIAW- October Happenings

  I thought about skipping out on the What I Ate Wednesday fun this week because it is suddenly October 1st and we need to discuss some happenings. But…. WIAW is part of my routine and without my routine I feel all sorts of off-balance and I don’t want to be off-balance so I figured […]

14 Miles and Barbie’s Birthday

  If I had a theme song at the moment, it would probably be Yellow by Coldplay. I don’t even love the color yellow, it is just a coincidence that my sneakers have all ended up this shade from the rainbow. You will notice that I am still wearing both pairs of Adidas. My older […]

Panera Bread For Lunch And Friday Links Of Interest

  So yesterday after chatting with you all about DJ, her book and being married to former hockey player Pavel Bure, I read an article about Hilary Duff and former hockey player Mike Comrie getting divorced. Maybe Hilary should read DJ’s book on marriage? Just a thought. I can’t believe it is Friday already. I […]

Who Collects Lip Balm?

As a little girl, I always liked to collect things that interested me. It started with Hello Kitty and stickers, hockey cards and sports memorabilia. As I got older, my collecting matured to collecting things in the housewares department that involved cupcakes and desserts such as dishes, paintings, ice cream bowls, napkins, dish towels….you get my point, yes? […]

Very Cherry Berry Blend and Red Mango News

Good morning sunshines! I know I know, I am way too cheery in the morning. I am actually a bit tired this morning. The little boy and I spent some quality time together last night at the Islanders game. It was a random Tuesday night for us to be there but when he asked if […]
