Dodgers World Series

Even though our beloved LA Dodgers didn’t win the world series last night I thought it would be fun to go back and see our love for the team. 

Ahhhh nothing like that green field and the energy of a game!

Ever since I’ve known hubby we’ve been going to games.

2007 – AT&T Park with Matt and Tyler

2009 – With my sister in law.2010 – Jewish Heritage Night2011 – Sarah’s 1st game!   2013 – With friends, Liza and Charlize.   2015 – Jacob’s 1st game!   After walking inside Jacob fell asleep.  While Sarah was running the bases, little man fell asleep again.  2016 – Daddy took Sarah to a game. 2017 – Unfortunately with the extremely hot summer and our schedule we never got to make it to a game this year. However for Halloween, hubby and I dressed up as #1 fans. We might not have won the World Series, but at least we had fun watching it.

Go blue!

What’s Up Wednesday {October 2017}

I’m linking up with Mel, Shay and Sheaffer for some random monthly fun.

What we’re eating this week…

Monday – Salmon patties and carrot fries

Tuesday – Leftover Shabbat stew

Wednesday – MNO with the girls so I’m eating out and hubby is ordering food.

Thursday – Burger and roasted veggies.

Friday – Crock pot lemon chicken, cous cous and sweet potato souffle.

Saturday and Sunday – out

What I’m reminiscing about…

Spending time with little Sarah at mommy and me. It feels like just yesterday we were doing all the things Jacob and I are doing at mommy and me.

20132017What I’m loving…

Spending time Sarah. We’ve having some great mommy and me date nights while we hit the bat-mitzvah circuit.

What we’ve been up to…

The kiddos have already got to wear their Halloween costume a couple times this week. Sarah is Kooky cookie from Shopkins and Jacob is trash truck.

What I’m dreading…

Looking for a new babysitter. Our babysitter got a job and is no longer available to watch the kids. It took J a long time to trust our sitter so I’m worried it’s going to take a long time once again.

What I’m working on…

Self care. It’s so so hard for me to take care of my self. Sure I take the time to go out with my girlfriends here and there but scheduling an appointment for myslef or getting things done for myself has become so hard. I have waves where I take care of my self and then months go by and I haven’t done anything for myself. I’m realty going to try and make those appointments, not cancel them when kids stuff come up and take care of me.

What I’m excited about…

Getting all fancy and wearing these shoes for my sister’s wedding. What I’m watching/reading…

Hubby and I look forward to Thursday nights!

What I’m listening to…

What I’m doing this weekend…

Boo-ing neighbors, attending a few Halloween events and carving pumpkins.

What I’m looking forward to next month…

My sister’s wedding!!!!!! Ahhhh I can’t wait!What else is new…

I am loving my laser cut pumpkin I ordreed a few weeks ago. I’m thinking of painting it, but not sure if I should just leave as is. Thought? Question of the month is: What’s your favorite Thanksgiving side dish?

I’m not a huge fan of Thanksgiving food. There I said it.

 I find the food boring and bland. But if I had to pick something it would be the stuffing. I love the endless possibilities.Happy Wednesday!


With temperatures in the high 90’s we’ve been playing indoors most afternoons. Sarah and Jacob love playing play doh, but lately it’s been getting everywhere. I saw an easy recipe for slime one day and surprised Sarah after school.    We had so much fun that we decided to do again when Sarah’s friend was over for a play date.

Here is the recipe we used:

One bottle of Elmer’s glitter glue, 1 1/2 tbsp contact solution and 1/2 tsp baking soda.

Knead until it turns into ball. 

Friday Favorites

It’s been a crazy week, heck it’s been a crazy few months, but I’m back with some Friday Favorites.Today I am linking up with Erika, Narci and Andrea to share our Friday Favorites!


My sister was visiting for 6 days last week and I still feel like I have not yet recovered. She had quite the list of things she wanted to do so we kept busy all week long. Spending so much time my sister is my FAVORITE!     TWO

Going on a mommy and me date to a Moroccan themed bat mitzvah and getting matching Henna tattoos was a FAVORITE.THREE

The kids were off of school on Monday for teacher work day so I took the kids to an indoor play place for a hot and sweaty morning. Spending time with both of my kiddos is my FAVORITE. But in all honesty I had a 2 hour quiet time put in place when we got home. These places give me a headache and mama  needed a break.FOUR

Getting surprise mail from my friends is my FAVORITE. Thanks for thinking of me!FIVE

It was my turn to bring snack to Jacob’s class this week. I made my FAVORITE Pumpkin Egg Casserole with challah bread. It was amazing!!!

Spending one on one time with my little man is also my FAVORITE!


My friend, Sarah and I took the kids one afternoon to this little Pumpkin Patch near our home. Going to the Pumpkin Patch is my FAVORITE. It  only had a few things for the kids to do, but at least we got some cute pics.


My friend, Whitney took this picture after class one day. His little cheesy face (and his bow-tie!!) is my FAVORITE!


Just as I type this post the Dodgers beat the Cubs 11-1 and are now on their way to play in the World Series!!! Go blue! The Dodgers are our FAVORITE.Happy Friday, friends!

10 on 10 {October 2017}

ten on ten button
Documenting 10 pictures on the 10th day of the month.
Here is a peek into our day!
I’m not a morning person, but thankfully my hubby gets it and wakes up with the kids when he can.
While I got ready, he fed the kids breakfast and surprised me with a breakfast sandwich to go.
Thanks babe! Love you!!
After I dropped off Sarah at school and drove Jacob to his class field trip at the farm for their Harvest Festival.
The day started off cool, but it quickly got hot and we were all melting. An ice pop was the perfect way to end the day.
J fell asleep on the way home, but I needed to run an errand so I transferred him into the stroller.
I transferred him once again into the car. I didn’t want to test my luck so I passed through a drive thru and let him sleep in the car some more.
It was hot and I wanted to do some things around the house before the afternoon chaos so I transferred J to his bed.
I ran the dishwasher, did a load of laundry and cleaned up breakfast.
I got 30 minutes before he woke up. Boo!
We picked up Sarah and drove back home. I forgot my phone at home.

The kids had a little iPad time while I did more laundry.

I was craving chocolate so the kids and I baked a Foodstirs kit.

After indulging, we all went out for a walk.I love seeing J try to keep up with the big kids.

When hubby works late I get lazy and don’t like to cook. Since we needed milk and a new dinner, I took the kids to the store. They each got a little cart and picked out their dinner. Sarah wanted fish sticks and Jacob wanted pizza. 

I was wiped and needed some downtime. I reached 12/12 standing time at 6pm! I put on a movie and ate on the couch.

By 8 both kids were bathed, read to and put to bed. Hallelujah!!

I plopped on the couch, watched Housewives of Dallas and worked a little bit.

Love this show!

Hubby and my sister finally arrived. He was working late and my sister is in town for a visit so he picked her up from the airport. We caught up for a few minutes and then I went to bed. 

Such a busy day!

I love looking back at these posts and seeing what my day looked like.

See previous posts below.

Color Inspiration {October 2017}

I’m linking up with my friend, Whitney for our monthly Color Inspiration.

If you blogged too make sure you link up at the bottom of the post!

This month we are talking all things BLACK.


I’m a big fan of hats! I wear them to cover up a messy hair day, it blocks the fun and because I think they are cute. My favorite summer hat is an all BLACK baseball hat from here. I also like wearing a BLACK wide brim hat in the winter from here.


I’m not much of a make up person, but if I’m going to wear any kind of make up it’s going to be mascara. I usually buy BLACK and switch off between a few brands. Currently I’m using Revlon Dramatic Definition.


We went to the outlets last week for shoes and I stumbled upon this super cute BLACK bag.


I really love a mask after a long day. I don’t get to do it often, but when I do I really enjoy it. Recently I tried the charcoal masks. Its super weird at first. It looks like BLACK paint, but feel so good on. Happy Thursday, friends!

Make sure to grab the graphic and link up with us!
