Documenting 10 pictures on the 10th day of the month. Here is a peek into our day!

ONE

I’m so thankful to my sweet hubby for hanging out with the kids on weekend mornings so that I could sleep in. I finally peeled my self out of bed and made breakfast. Breakfast was a bagel, cream cheese and hard boiled egg with coffee.

TWO

I unloaded the dishwasher and loaded it back again and went over to the couch and snuggled up to watch kids baking championship. We love this show!

THREE

I wrapped a few birthday gifts for the weekend. I love a fun pattern!

FOUR

I started my least favorite household thing, laundry. Ugh!

Five

I got dressed for the day and did my hair. My wet brush is a must to tame this beast. Plus my kids love theirs too

SIX

I popped over to Sarah’s room. She was playing with her water beads set.

SEVEN

Birthday party for Miss Aubrey. Her decor was the cutest!

EIGHT

Back home and in Pj’s. Hubby made dinner and we watched The Titan Games on the couch. After the kids went to bed, I passed out. I wasn’t feeling too well.

What’s Up Wednesday {January 2018}

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

What we’re eating this week…

While on the plane last week I came across a recipe for Fennel Citrus Roasted Chicken in a magazine. It was delish!

What I’m reminiscing about…

Spending 5 days with my family in Florida after my sister gave birth to her beautiful baby boy!

What I’m loving…

Jacob got back into gymnastics and I’m loving watching how much fun he is having.

What we’ve been up to…

It’s been super cold (low 30’s) and rainy. Sometimes J and I park outside of Sarah’s school and just watch movies in the car while it rains. We love the sound of rain and have fun getting cozy.

What I’m dreading…

The hot temperatures! I love winter!

What I’m working on…

Our Spring Break plans. Can’t to travel again!

What I’m excited about…

After a very long and exhausting 3 months Jacob’s preschool opened back up. Due to the Woolsey fires they had to do extensive renovations, which unfortunately took a little longer then expected. He’s so happy to be back at his “old school”. So thankful for his teachers and the sweet pictures they post online.

What I’m watching/reading…

Thanks to my new smart tv I’ve been watching a lot of new shows. Check out my Netflix & Chill post here. My current favorite is Riverdale.

What I’m listening to…

I’ve been listening to Podcasts lately. My favorites are LA Cicks with my friend Sarah, Weekly Dose of BS with the girls from Housewives of Dallas and Rachel Hollis’ Rise.

What I’m wearing…

My Ugg boots on repeat. Eek it’s so cold!

What I’m doing this weekend…

Hubby and I are going to do a lot of dividing and conquering this weekend. Sarah is going to do her first Girl Scout cookie booth and Jacob is going to a birthday party.

What I’m looking forward to next month…

Valentine’s Day with my sweethearts.

What else is new…

Now that Sarah is a Girl Scout she selling cookies in neighborhood. It’s been so fun and a great learning experience for Sarah.

Question of the month is: What’s your favorite family Valentine’s Day traditions?

We have a family dinner with a decorated dining room table, we send Valentine’s, send Cards For Hospitalized Kids and I make them cutesy lunches on Valentine’s Day.

Happy Wednesday!

Netflix and Chill

Thanks to my new Smart TV in my bedroom, hubby and I have been watching a lot of Netflix lately. We’ve seen some really great shows and I thought it would be fun to share some of my/our current favorites and get a new ideas from you.

Netflix

You was amazing!!! The suspense, the twists and turns! Loved every second of it. I’m also a huge Gossip Girl fan (hello early 2000) so seeing Penn Badgley in a starring role was lot’s of fun.

After all the suspense from You I needed something light. I stumbled upon Good Girls and quickly became obsessed. It’s about 3 mamas trying to help their families out. Their mishaps and family dynamics were hilarious. I highly recommended this show if you’re looking for something light and funny.

I’d like to consider myself an organized person, but after watching a season of Tidying Up I went through the house and made a call for donations pick up. It’s that good!

I’m so bummed I didn’t get to see Taylor Swift during her Reputation stadium tour so I was thrilled when I heard it was recorded and available on Netflix. Taylor is a great singer, but she’s an even better performer. This was fun to watch!

I love a good belly laugh, but I don’t find a lot of comedians funny. Sebastian Maniscalco is hilarious!!! And his Stay Hungry show was amazing! Complete belly laughs and even a few tears. Loved it!

Amazon Prime

We also watch shows on Amazon Prime so I made a separate section for those movies/shows.

Looking for a show you have to think a bit, then Homecoming is your show. It’s labeled as a physiological thriller, but it’s not scary. Just an edge of your seat kind of show. Without giving to much away, Julia Roberts plays a caseworker at a secret government facility where she starts therapy with a special soldier.


My friend, Beth told me about The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel show a couple days before my birthday. She simply said it’s a must see and I would love it. Guess what I did on my birthday weekend? Binged Mrs. Masiel and thoroughly enjoyed myself. She’s witty, quick, hilarious and a joy to watch. Can’t wait for season 3!!

What are you watching? Have any favorites we should check out? Please share below.

Documenting 10 pictures on the 10th day of the month. Here is a peek into our day!

At 8 am the fog was super thick. I could barely see anything past the traffic light!

Back home I unloaded the dishwasher, made coffee and plopped on the couch to watch “Tidying Up” while J played independently.

I finally pealed myself off the couch and made our way into town. After we ran a couple of errands we ended at Costco.

We got my favorite almond poppy seed muffins and a whole bunch of other stuff.

We unloaded the car, made lunch and headed to pick up Sarah from school.

Thanks to a Chanukah gift, I was able to call her on her watch to let her know where we were parked.

Back home we did homework, ate a snack and went outside to play. I like to leave my phone at home from 3-5 so I don’t have any pictures from that time.

Around 5pm hubby came home and I realized I didn’t have a few items for dinner. Jacob and I walked to the store while Sarah went to the neighbor’s house.

I don’t like our townhouse but I LOVE our neighborhood. There is so much greenery everywhere and we can walk to the market.

Spotted these new “Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups” made with sunflower butter. I was intrigued but have not yet tasted them.

For dinner we had soup, salad and grilled cheese. PS if you like corn chowder soup I highly recommended this brand!

After bath, books & prayers the kiddos were in bed. Hubby and I watched the new show, The Titans and then went to bed. Anybody else watch it? We love the competition!

Happy Thursday, friends!

Friday Favorites

Today I am linking up with Erika, Narci and Andrea to share our Friday Favorites.

ONE

We started the week out with Sarah’s class holiday party. As the room mom I was in charge of putting together 4 activity stations for the kids. We had a cookie decorating, finger snowman, snowflake decorating and snowball toss. Getting to help out in Sarah’s classroom in my FAVORITE.

TWO

I met up with a friend at a new coffee shop this week and checked out the trending turmeric & ginger latte. It was so yummy! A new FAVORITE go to drink.

THREE

With all the holiday stuff in stores, I get overly surprised when I find something Jewish to add to my Chanukah stash. I found this gem at Bed, Bath & Beyond. It doesn’t really smell like anything but it’s nice to be included.

FOUR

I love sharing tidbits of my life on social media. Thank you Instagram for capturing my #topnine FAVORITES.

FIVE

Sarah and I “baked” treats for our friends this week. Baking together is our FAVORITE. Until of course she drops my food processor and breaks the attachment bowl. #tistheseason

Happy Friday, friends!

What’s Up Wednesday {December 2018}

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

What we’re eating this week…

I’m loving our Farm Fresh To You delivery! I take a protein out of the freezer during lunch and use whatever veggie is in our box. It’s been so fun trying new veggies out!

What I’m reminiscing about…

I chaired my first PTA event and it was a success! Thanks to my family for putting up with my shenanigans these past few months.

What I’m loving…

Due to Jacob’s preschool getting damaged in the Woolsey Fires, his school is renting out a space in a school in another city. Due to the long commute the teacher suggested he stay a bit longer. You guys!!! He’s been napping at school and is loving it. It’s so crazy to me. He’s never napped with others in the room and much less on a mat. I can’t believe it! I’m so proud of him!

What we’ve been up to…

Celebrating Chanukah!

My 37th Birthday!

PTA Holiday Party

My friend, Jen gave birth to Miss Blake.

Disney On Ice with the kiddos

Family outing to Snow Day LA & Snow Day at the Zoo.

What I’m listening to…

I’m still listening to my friend, Sarah’s podcast called LA Chicks. You should check it out.

What I’m wearing…

Last weekend we were invited to a family ugly sweater party. I’ve never been to this type of party so I was on the look out for a Chanukah themed sweater. Thanks to Target there were two options. I chose the Live Laugh Latke sweater. Such a fun night!

What I’m doing this weekend…

Sarah has a birthday party to attend, we are going to a holiday party, hubby and I are going on a day date to somewhere really cool (I promise to blog about it) and we are ending the weekend with our town parade.

What I’m looking forward to next month…

Checking out the snow! We always plan a trip to play in the snow. Can’t wait!

What else is new…

The kids start winter break this Friday! I can’t wait for lazy mornings, adventures and lot’s of time to bake.

Question of the month is: What is your favorite last minute gift idea? I’m a big Amazon fan! If it can come to my door in 2 days and I didn’t have to take my kids into a store where they will ask for a snack and then another one I’m golden. Check out my Amazon Gift Guide here.

Happy Wednesday!

What’s Up Wednesday {November 2018}

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

What we’re eating this week…

My kids are big fans of pancakes, but sometimes due to time and busy mornings that’s just not possible. I’m a big fan of the brand Kodiak Cakes so when I was saw they had microwaveable pancakes cups, I was sold. Yum! This stuff is so good!

Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day! A cup of hot coffee and some kind of egg dish is my perfect pair. A few years ago hubby made this breakfast for me and I’ve been hooked ever since. Some people call it egg in a basket, egg in a hole, or even one eyed jack. Whatever it’s called it’s my current fav!

What I’m reminiscing about…

Spending the weekend with love for our 10 year anniversary!

What I’m loving…

Target’s new feature Drive Up! Do you have it in your town? I love it! You order your items on your app. Then they send you a message 2 hours later (mine was only 1.5 hours later) that’s is ready to be picked up and tada, you drive up, click on I’m here on your app and THEY WALK OUT TO YOUR CAR AND HAND YOU YOUR BAG!!!! No more over spending, or taking a cranky toddler or a daughter that always wants to “look” at the Bullseye section! It’s been amazing! I highly recommend it.

What we’ve been up to…

The Woolsey fires hit really hard in our town! Jacob’s school is still not operable, A few of Sarah’s classmates and teachers lost their home. After 2.5 weeks Sarah returned to school where she received sweet messages from her teacher and principal.

What I’m dreading…

Nada!

What I’m working on…

Cleaning out my home! Yes, I always say this, but if I don’t toss/donate/sell things every few weeks my home gets cluttered and that drives me crazy!

What I’m excited about…

Seeing snow! We are planning our annual snow day trip to Lake Arrowhead. Here we are last year at Mt Frazier.

What I’m watching/reading…

I had a little cold last week so I took some time during the weekend to recharge. I grabbed Reese Witherspoon’s new book, some hot tea and box of tissues.

What I’m listening to…

My friend Sarah has the funniest Podcast called, LA Chicks. I’ve been listening to it while cooking dinner. So fun!

What I’m wearing…

Lot’s of GREEN! I wore the color green 3 different ways while on my anniversary trip.

What I’m doing this weekend…

Celebrating Chanukah! It starts on Sunday and I can’t wait!! I love seeing the holiday joy through my kids eyes. We also have a birthday party, my aunt Aline’s birthday, a synagogue event, taking the kids to the zoo and a friends Chanukah party to attend. Phew! It’s going to be a busy one.

What I’m looking forward to next month…

My birthday! I turn 37!! I’m so thankful to have my health, my family and loved ones in my life.

What else is new…

Someone recently asked me my what my hobbies were. I looked at them and totally blanked. Ummm other then nap time and bed time, I don’t have time to my self. Then I saw this and new I had to share it.

Question of the month is: What is your favorite Elf on the Shelf trick? 

Well since we don’t celebrate Christmas or have an Elf on the Shelf I thought I’d share my favorite candle instead. I usually get my candles from Bath and Body Works, but after the super strong fall candles we got I decided to look for something that wasn’t so strong. I found this cinnamon and nutmeg candle at Homegoods the other day and just love it!

Happy Wednesday!
