Head Out of the Sand

My run yesterday morning started out terrible. That first mile felt like forever. My legs were screaming to stop. But I didn’t stop. NOPE. You see, I know the difference in the kind of screams that come from my legs. Sometimes the screams are legitimate and need to be listened to immediately. And then sometimes, my legs […]

Mental Cleaning

You see this? Hmm. I wonder if the people at Verizon saw yesterday’s post and are trying to toy with me. They must know that I hate retrieving my mail from the mailbox so why not torture the poor girl with useless flyers in her front door. I must say, writing up yesterday’s post made […]

What Would Your Friends Say?

If your friends were to describe you in a few words, do you know which words they would choose? I think my friends would choose the following words to describe me: funny trustworthy wonderful mother honest easy going loyal intelligent creative patient WAIT…PATIENT? Yes, I suppose one can say I have patience. BUT… Not when it […]

Weekend Recap and Mixing Up The Menu

Well hello!  I almost didn’t wake up on time for me this morning – between the sun rising later and later and my new cable box which lacks a clock on the display, I woke up in the dark and without seeing the time, assumed it was 3:00 am and went back to sleep. It was not 3:00 am. […]

Three Tip Tuesday- I am back!

I am such a creature of habit that not being able to say hello to you all yesterday totally threw off my morning. Admit it, your morning was thrown off too and you may even think you missed me a bit. The site is still undergoing changes so please bear with me if you have […]

Sounds and Smells

The winner of the Bestowed Box Giveaway is Meghan from the blog, Fitness CrEATures. Congrats Meghan! ******************************************************************************************************** I am a morning person. I have never used an alarm clock in my life. If I sleep until 7:00 am it is a miracle. I may wake up naturally but the first thing I do is look for my […]

Happy Friday!

Happy Friday! I am so ready for the weekend, especially for our Mother’s Day breakfast tradition! The boy and I actually ended up at our favorite diner yesterday for lunch on our way to his orthodontist appointment. I need more giant egg white omelettes in my life. This was seriously delicious. It was such a […]

Mother of Year Strikes Again

If I didn’t already qualify for Mother of the Year,  I secured the top spot last night for sure. Not only did I take the boy last night (on a school night) to the Islanders/Penguins playoff game, I excused him from Hebrew School, I sported an Islanders T-shirt in support of the orange and blue […]

Italian Cravings

I couldn’t be happier that today’s forecast calls for 70 degrees. Considering yesterday was in the 40’s and I was wearing my winter coat, scarf, gloves, Uggs as well as covered in a blanket at Little League last night, I am more than ready for a touch of spring. And for a run outside. I […]

Friday Finds

I have been up for a while watching the breaking news. One terrorist dead and the other on the loose. Public transportation in Boston shut down while they try to get’em. I am confident they will catch him but wow, so scary. I hope that everyone in the Boston area stays safe and heeds the […]

Mother of the Year?

Are you allowed to vote for yourself as Mother of the Year? Or At least write your own essay and submit it to your local newspaper for when they ask for entries to determine the local Mother of the Year? If so, I think I will start writing my essay. You are correct – that […]

A Day in the Life of a Dr. Oz Star

I still can’t believe I was on national television yesterday. Thank you to everyone that tuned it to see me! Totally amazing. I watched the episode with my son and we had a good time spotting me throughout the entire show and previews. I also did what any normal celebrity would do during their moment […]
