What I’m reminiscing about…

Lake Arrowhead with my family. Due to barely any snow this year we decided not to go this year. I miss our annual winter vacation. What I’m loving…

I love yoga, but I don’t love the gym. For months now I keep saying how I’m going to look for a class, then I found one and it was canceled due to low enrollment. Ugh! Then I got an email from the teacher that her co-worker has a few openings. So on Thursday evenings for next couple of weeks if you need me, I’ll be here. What we’ve been up to…

There is so so much going on! I’m always working on something. My to do list is always never ending. We just finished celebrating Purim and now it’s time for Passover. What I’m dreading…

Summer in Florida. Even though I love love going to Florida I don’t love the weather. We have two trips planned this year for my sisters wedding and its going to be gross. What I’m working on…

Oshrat’s bachlorette! We’re going to Palm Springs to celebrate! Can’t wait!!What I’m excited about…

We recently went to a really fun family outing. We attended a Harlem Globetrotters game. The kids were entertained and us adults loved the tricks too!What I’m watching/reading…

My kids have been watching Care Bears recently and I just love it. Talk about old school! It reminds me of those Share Bears I got when I was a kid. What I’m listening to…

Capital Letters by Hailee Steinfeld

What I’m wearing…

February has been crazy! One minute I’m wearing shorts and the next minute I’m wearing boots. What I’m doing this weekend…

Celebrating my friend, Melissa’s 40th birthday in Portland! I’ve never been and have always wanted to go. What I’m looking forward to next month…

My baby girl is turning 7! Where has the time gone!!?What else is new…

We recently went to a Sustainability Festival and the kids got to go inside a trash truck!! My kids love and wait for the trash truck to come every week. They were so excited!Question of the month is: What is your favorite Spring Break vacation?

Spring Break usually falls on Passover so we don’t travel during the holiday. Last year we hosted a dinner for our sweet friends.Happy Wednesday!

Friday Favorites

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


Fun Fact: When I’m pregnant and the year after the kids are born, I don’t wear perfume. With J turning 3 in a few months I decided it was time to buy a new bottle of perfume. I’ve been looking for a new perfume for a while now, but always keep going back to my FAVORITE perfume, Viva La Juicy. It’s so not me! The gold, the pink, but I LOVE love this scent. It’s sweet but not floral. The scent is gentle and not overpowering. I was getting ready to order a bottle when I saw this set. It came in the mail this week. Can’t wait to start smelling good again. TWO

I met up with my friend, Liza for drinks one night. Getting out for a couple hours with a friend is my FAVORITE.


Now with my iWtach influencing me to move around more I decided to sign up for a yoga class. It was nice doing something just for me.


Working with Foodstirs has been so much fun! They recently came out with Minute Mug Cake Mix! It was scrumptious!!! A FAVORITE way to end the day! FIVE

Jacob and I met up with friends, Aubrey and Blake for story time and a picnic at the park. It was such a beautiful day! Meeting up with friends is my FAVORITE. The kids play and the mamas get to catch up. Happy Friday, friends!

Last weekend was super busy. We attended a birthday party, a MNO, hung out with the neighbors and attended a Superbowl party. Hanging out with my neighbors is my FAVORITE. TWO

Our friends, Jen and Remy joined us this week for story time. Going to these type of events make being a stay home mama my FAVORITE. THREE

Hubby took Sarah to get a new pair of glasses last week, but unfortunately I missed the Facetime call. We went to go pick them up this week. While these might not be my favorite, the girl wearing them is my FAVORITE.FOUR

Going to Mommy and Me with my little man is my FAVORITE. We celebrated Valentine’s Day a bit early with a PJ pancake party. See more here.


Thanks to my friend, Liz, I’ve been going to my new FAVORITE, Joi Cafe. If you are local you should check it out! There coffee is made with coconut creme and is out of this world. This time I also got the Mediterranean salad. Yum!!! SIX

I got the kids an indoor trampoline. Its definitely been their FAVORITE this week. Happy Friday, friends.

Valentine’s PJ Pancake Party

Twice a week Jacob and I attend a 3 hour Mommy and Me class.We recently had our Valentine’s PJ Pancake Party and it was the sweetest thing.

Each parent was told to bring a Valentine’s that did not include food. With Jacobs love for all things that move I was on the hunt for something whit wheels. I found this set of cars on Amazon.To my delight they came individualized wrapped. All I had to do was find a printable that matched our theme, sign Jacob’s name and staple it to the bag. Ta da! To print, click on printable and then print. We were also asked to sign up for food. We brought yogurt. The pancakes were a huge hit! After each kid decorated their bag they then put their Valentine’s card in each classmates bag. I love these little memories with my little Valentine.

It’s been a crazy month. I locked my self out of the house 2x, I got t-boned, and bit all my nails off from all the craziness. So happy it’s February!


We started the week off with a TuBishvat festival. We made fruit kabobs, stomped grapes, made pita and planted flowers. Festivals are our FAVORITES.

See past festivals we’ve attended below.

Avocado Festival

St. Patricks Day Festival


If you know me personally you know how much I love love my Game Boy. In fact I still have and play with my original Game Boy from the 90’s. So when I saw that you can get a cover for your phone and still play my beloved game I was super excited. How cool!!!? Totally my FAVORITE this week!THREE
Even though I speak Hebrew I (unfortunately) don’t speak enough of it with my kids. So when my friend told me about a class that was forming for elementary school aged kids in the area I jumped on the opportunity and signed Sarah up. She came home this week with this Tu Bishvat treat and I almost teared up. Seeing her learn Hebrew is my FAVORITE. FOUR

This week we celebrated a Jewish holiday, Tu Bishvat. It’s one of my FAVORITE holidays. We invited friends for a yummy meal.  FIVE

I was recently contacted by a company to showcase my easy zucchini fritters. Yay, can’t wait to share more news with you! Requests to share my love for food are my FAVORITE. Happy Friday, friends!

What I’m loving…

My TuBishvat centerpiece! It was so simple and so much fun to put together.

 What we’ve been up to…

Trusting a sitter to watch our kids is very hard for me. However hubby and I need to get out and have some adult conversations every so often. So when our sitter started a new job she was no longer available. After searching for a few months I am happy to report that we found a babysitter! It was a long process, but she’s watched the kids once this past month and all went well. Can’t wait to plan more outings with hubby. What I’m dreading…

Potty training Jacob. He will be 3 in April and it’s kinda sorta time, but ugh! I really don’t like this part of parenting.

See my potty training system here.

What I’m working on…

Cleaning out every corner and every hole! I’m going through a major haul over here. I have the women’s shelter pick up my big loads, but have recently heard about Give Back Box. You request a label on their site and then print it at home. See more here.

What I’m excited about…

Visiting my friend Melissa next month! She’s celebrating her 40th so we are all flying in for the celebration. What I’m watching/reading…

Housewives of NY, Fixer Upper, SHark Tank, This is Us anddddd Vanderpump Rules! Can.get.enough!!What I’m listening to…

Never Be The Same by Camila Cabello

What I’m wearing…

The weather is so flippy floppy that one day I’m wearing scarves and boots and the next day I’m wishing my legs were shaved so I can wear shorts. Oh So Cal!

What I’m doing this weekend…

We have a birthday party to attend and going to our friends house for Superbowl. What I’m looking forward to next month…

Celebrating Valentine’s Day and Purim. We still don’t have our costume, but we are looking at options. This is what we did the last few years.

Incredibles in 2017Superheroes in 2016American Indians in 2015Minions and Gru in 2014What else is new…

Friday Favorites

We started the week off with a potluck at the park. It was nice getting out and meeting new families.TWO

Jacob has been all over the place with sleep. One day he will sleep 3 hours and the next day refuse to nap. The other day I decided to just let him play in his room. 15 minutes later I walked to see him on the rug asleep. Oh toddlers!THREE

Sarah has become quite the accessorize queen. On this day she is wearing a unicorn headband, kitty knee high socks and a princess necklace. FOUR

Hubby worked late a couple times this week so it was just me and the kiddos. I needed a minute so I asked Sarah if she would read a bed time book for Jacob. I walked in and found them like this. Sweet loves!FIVE

I’m on week 3 of Whole 30 and have been loving all the new recipes. Here are a few things I made this week.Happy Friday, friends!
