TOL – Modern Technology, Gym Class & Slow Walking

10k race

  I have so many issues with modern technology and one of them is how available we all are, or really, how available people expect that we are because we are so easy to reach. Kids today not only have cell phones, they now have the ability to text their parents from class to say […]

Cold S’mores {No Bake & Super Easy!}

cold smores

  I first learned about cold s’mores during the summer of 2006 when my son was enrolled in the sweetest little cooking class for preschoolers (it was actually the summer before he started preschool, he wasn’t even three years old!). It was a mommy and me style cooking class where we made simple and easy recipes with […]

Thinking Out Loud – Did I Tell You…

  I talk and text with so many people in a day and I consider my blog writing a form of communication as well therefore I often forget who I tell what and in what form I tell it. Did I tell you… That Lulu Lemon has an in-house tailor? You can even have your work-out […]

I Don’t Own A Scale

Yesterday was a long day. A beautiful, wonderful and fun day but a long day just the same. Although, who am I to properly judge what qualifies as a long day? Normally by 9:00 am, I have already put in a full day and would easily put my pajamas back on and call it a […]

Back-to-Back Long Runs

  When I heard on Friday that my son’s little league game was switched to 9:00 am Saturday morning (meaning you are on the field at 8:30 am) instead of 3:30 pm in the afternoon, I was less than pleased. I don’t think the coaches really cared or understood that Saturday morning is my long run morning. Naturally […]

TOL And Chocolate Chip Day

  Just about my entire post deleted itself upon publishing this morning. Be thankful you weren’t here when I realized this horrendous occurrence for then I had to calm down, suck it up and rewrite all of the words I  struggled to replicate. Parenting thoughts: I have a ten-year-old son. I am soon to be […]

Vacation From Cooking?

  The little boy (who really isn’t all that little anymore as I watch him inch closer in height to myself) woke up yesterday morning claiming a sore throat in the same sentence as informing me that the first pitch for Mets opening day would be at 1:00 pm in the afternoon. Did he really think […]

Thinking Out Loud- Pretzel Spoonz And An Ah-Ha Moment

  In honor of Amanda, our Thinking Out Loud host, check out the newest pretzels from Snyders: Pretzel Spoonz! Click on the image or here for the link to the Hungry Girl article all about these new perfect-for-dipping Pretzel Spoonz. I love a fun utensil but I never really cared for the pretzel. Are you a pretzel […]

Mighty Maple Is Back In My Pantry

  Thank goodness Spring is really only a few weeks away (in my mind that is) because my 11 mile run outdoors Saturday morning was just down right horrendous due to the weather conditions. This was one of those runs where you mentally battle to keep yourself going. For some reason, I had it in my mind that I […]

Sometimes I Am A Pitbull

  Well good morning. I was a very lucky girl today. The temperature when I woke up was a balmy 32 degrees signifying the return to my running path. I am pretty sure it had been a good two weeks since I went for an outdoor run. While two weeks doesn’t seem all that long, […]

Whole Foods Haul, Oatmeal Tips And Sesame Street

  I have been wanting to tell you something since I had lunch at Whole Foods on Saturday. Worth every penny by the way. Don’t ask me what was in the box – I get all scoop-happy when I see my favorite roasted anything and just pile it all on into the brown box. OK […]
