What I’m reminiscing about…

Cutting Jacob’s hair for the first time at his birthday and haircut ceremony. I can’t believe we finally cut his hair!!

What I’m loving…

Jacob has been phasing out of naps. Even though this stay at home mama loves nap time, I’m kind loving not having to worry about being home for his nap time. My babies are growing up!

What we’ve been up to…

May was lot’s of fun! My mom came for visit in the beginning of the month, we celebrated Jacob’s 3rd birthday, I celebrated Mother’s day with a fun fulled day of activities, we attended 3 birthday parties, I went on a Motherhood Walk with my friend Eynav, we celebrated and baked cheesecake for Shavout, a Jewish holiday, sang karaoke for Cheryl’s, Sarah completed 1st grade, Jacob and I attended our last mommy and me, we said bye to my mother-in-law as she moved on to new adventures and ended the month with a family trip to Vegas. Phew! It was a busy month!

What I’m dreading…

Potty training!!! I know i’ve been talking about doing it a few times, but time never felt right. However with preschool starting in September he needs to be fully potty trained before he starts school so this mama has some work to do. Any tips? I dread this part of being a mama. What I’m working on…

Catching up on my blog life. I have a huge to do list and a several drafts. This summer I’m hoping to really focus on my blog.

What I’m excited about…

Summer concerts with the family. Aside from hanging by the pool most of the summer our family loves hanging out at the park, playing, bringing a picnic and hanging out while listening to music. What I’m watching/reading…

Sarah and I are back at it with watching our favorite baking competitions. This time we are watching Best Baker in America. So good!and I’m still watching my usual, Southern Charm and Real Housewives of NYC. CAN’T.GET.ENOUGH!

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!

While trying on costumes the other day, Jacob spotted his favorite BLUE engine, Thomas.I’m loving my BLUE tassel earnings I got while In Florida last month.

I’m not one of those moms that makes fancy lunches. My daughter gets a sandwich, a carb (chips, crackers, or bar), a fruit (cut up fruit or pouch) and something fun (fruit snacks, a cookie, a leftover candy from a party, etc).

I do have one tip to share. squirt lemon juice on sliced apples and place in baggie in the fridge. It saves it from getting brown and tastes even sweeter. Happy Wednesday!
