10 on 10 {January 2019}

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!

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.

My friend recently told me about the Marvelous Mrs. Maisel and I am hooked! I saw 2 seasons in 10 days! Eeek! I love it! I love how she’s Jewish, witty, funny and quick.

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!

Hubby and I went to a wedding this week. Hanging out with him is my FAVORITE.TWO

Sarah was the Star Student last week. She brought home her poster and asked for a picture with it. Between the wind and the rolled up poster we had some laughs getting this picture. Laughing with my kids is my FAVORITE.THREE

I’ve been feeling pretty blah this week so when hubby told me he was running behind at work I asked my friend, Erin to watch my kiddos while I go to my Yoga class. Yoga is my FAVORITE. Thank you Erin I owe you one!FOUR

We played with bubbles this week at Mommy and Me. Seeing the kids running around trying to catch the bubbles was super sweet. These little moments with Jacob are my FAVORITE. FIVE

Brunch is my FAVORITE meal of the day. So after I volunteered in Sarah’s class I took myself out to brunch. I got a power grain bowl with 2 fried eggs, harissa sauce, and sauteed kale. Yum!! Happy Friday, friends!

Friday favorites

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

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

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!
