While I was walking around Hobby Lobby trying to encourage some laboring, I collected these beautiful flowers in my cart somehow. I needed a little pick me up after taking Christmas down, the house felt so bare. At least the house was cleaner than before- just boring and plain. I was thinking about the beautiful […]

They’re purple.” Brian- “But I didn’t plant a purple cherry tomato vine. I planted a red one.” Me- “It sure looks purple to me.” Its always fun to have little […]

More about NYC... and some great gelato.

Loved visiting Trinity Church- close to ground zero. My husband loved this history of this place, and I loved the old bell, the old headstones and the hydrangeas. Visiting ground zero was humbling and amazing at the same time. No matter what your beliefs or feelings are about the events that transpired on that ill-fated […]

The Blue Lemon

The Blue Lemon- pure clean food with a twist. I know the name is a little different, but let me tell you about the food. The sweet potato fries were to die for. They have a special sauce- better than your typical fry sauce, and the flavor satisfies your taste buds. Their salads are fresh- […]

Carlo's Bakery- another check off my bucket list!

When my husband and I first started planning our BEA/New York trip- would you believe the first thing I said I wanted to see was Carlos Bakery? Not the Statue of Liberty, not Central Park, not shopping…. but a bakery. But not just any bakery. The best of the best. My son and I watch […]

Rainy, bubbly, New York.

Do you see the bubbles?¬† Yes, I do too… sometimes it rains in New York. And it happened to rain the day we went to Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty. And by rain, I mean the heavens opened up and water flooded the streets. I washed these shoes before we came to New […]

Cleaning out the office....

When you clean out your office, many times you find some unexpected surprises along the way. This weekend, while cleaning out my office I came across a stash of Girl Scout Cookies! Surprise! I had hid them back in March, then the piles slowly gathered around them- and somehow I agreed that my children could […]
