Bergdorf’s Afternoon Tea

When you don’t live close to your mom, you appreciate her in a whole new way.  Liam was so excited to have his grandmother in town and, to be honest, so was I!  We always fit in a girl’s shopping day when she comes to town and this visit was no exception.  To start, we donned our best hats and headed out to high tea at Bergdorf’s.

Woodloch Resort

If you are within driving distance of the Poconos, do yourself a favor and book a stay at Woodloch, Trip Advisor’s #1 family resort in America.  Woodloch is an all-season, inclusive, mountain lake resort.  It’s been family owned and operated since the 1950’s, which explains why they know how to bring the family together for lots of fun and quality time.  With an activity program, tons of amenities, entertainment, one of the world’s best spas, and a championship golf course there is truly something for everyone.

St Patrick’s Day

“May your troubles be less and your blessings be more and nothing but happiness come through your door.”  St. Patrick’s Day is just one of the most fun holidays to celebrate!  I love the inclusiveness of everyone being Irish for a day: the green everything, the shamrocks, the parades, the music, and of course themed food and drinks (corned beef and green beer anyone?).  It’s a holiday everyone young and old can get into and enjoy.  You see so much spirit around town it’s like being back at your high school spirit week (How’s that for a throwback?!).

Blackhawks vs Rangers

“Hello out there, We’re on the air, It’s hockey night tonight!”  If you’re a hockey fan you are likely familiar with The Hockey Song by Stompin’ Tom Conners.  This Midwest girl was born and raised with Chicago Blackhawks in my blood.  I was there when we won the Stanley Cup in 2013 in Boston, and I am a steadfast fan even when it’s a rough year (like this one, for example).  Read more

Harlem Globetrotters

As I have been telling you guys, Liam has become obsessed with all sports!  He loves going to games, wearing jerseys, playing them, meeting athletes…anything related.  So when his dad recently took him to see the Harlem Globetrotters, well, let’s just say he is still talking about it weeks later!

Love is Liberty and Liberty is Love

Maybe you have read my recent blog on Liberty, our new special-needs Biewer Yorkie with cerebellar hypoplasia. Well, she has been in our home for 3 weeks. It has been an exhilarating, educational, heartwarming,  and introspective time for the family. Bottom line: we love this dog immensely. We can’t see life without her. Living with a disabled dog is time consuming and stressful; similar to a human baby. You can’t turn your back. Every moment has trepidation associated with it. But, the sense of warmth and purpose and humanity make this activity worth the effort. Read more

Playroom Holiday Pop Up by Fatherly

Want to know how to keep a kid entertained and happy for hours?  Take them to a cave FULL of the 100 Best Toys of 2018.  We attended Fatherly’s holiday pop-up event, called The Playroom, and it did not disappoint.  Liam was thrilled with the littleBits workshops, Lego play station, the jump pit from RXBar Kids, and oh so casually mentioned that he would love to find a Monzi Go-Kart under the tree this Christmas!  Read more
