Graduation Day + Friday Favorites

In Wednesday’s post, I mentioned my latest pizza superstition. It had come to my attention that the Islanders were winning their playoff games against Tampa on the nights that I had pizza from La Piazza, and losing on the nights I didn’t. Is it a coincidence that I had La Piazza for dinner Wednesday night and […]

Fanny Pack Issues + Friday Faves (Friends & Family Sales included!)

Stoney Clover fanny pack

A few favorites on this last Friday of winter! I’m so happy about the start of the spring season this weekend. While we aren’t totally free from the cold weather, I know we are that much closer to consistent warmer weather…and summer! Although, summer this time around also means my son leaves for college at the […]

Workouts From Last Week (getting closer and closer to spring!)

A few quick notes before getting to last week’s workouts: We will not discuss the time change. I do not want to think about the later sunrises or the struggle it is to wake up for the next several days. The weather last week was warm for this time of year which totally gave me […]

Never Say Never Plus Friday Favorites

Well, I might as well make today’s food post all about our hockey fan foods as life right now is all about Islanders playoff hockey for sure! On the way to the Islanders game last Friday night, we stopped for dinner at Piccolo. The main reason we chose Piccolo was for their bread basket which always […]

I am already considering the fact that the game could very well go into sudden death overtime which means I may go to sleep […]
