I have an issue with people criticizing pregnancy weight gain. Women are hard enough on ourselves when it comes to our figure. I can’t imagine being publicly scrutinized by media and strangers for 9 months. I roll my eyes each time someone chastises Kim Kardashian for pregger pounds. Kim can’t catch a break. It’s all […]
B’s preschool does something called Friend of the Week. Each week a different classmate has a turn being the Friend of the Week (FOW). It’s such a great experience for the children. Even though they enjoy being in the spotlight they also learn confidence and assertiveness. It’s amazing how much growth can develop from a […]
It happens to everyone at least once in a lifetime. Your tummy rumbles, you think it’s a fart, you let it rip….UH-OH!!!!! My little B experienced his first shart. Imagine his astonishment when he thought he was merely breaking wind but actually dropped a small bomb in his Scooby Doo undies. I felt really bad […]
When I came back from vacay I brought an extra ass a few extra pounds with me. It’s not my fault. How could I say no to endless macadamia nut dishes, fresh seafood, and pineapple everything?! In addition to that my body was drained and I had trouble adjusting from the time difference. To combat […]
It was a lovely coincidence that my birthday fell on Spring Break. While hanging in Maui with the boys I kept my celebration simple, a fun day in the sand with Mo and B then dinner at Ko Restaurant at the Fairmont Kea Lani. Being with my kids was the brightest part of my day […]
I’ve never taken the boys away for a Spring Break trip. So, for our first rendezvous it was a unanimous vote to head to the beautiful beaches of Maui. (Thanks to a Scooby Doo Wiki Tiki episode Bronson was all in!) I couldn’t wait to get to the Fairmont Kea Lani for the festivities. Having […]
What do me, Danica Patrick, Juvenile, Elton John, and Sarah Jessica Parker have in common? Well, in addition to great hair and expensive taste in clothes, we all share the same birthday. You can see what celebrities were born on the same day as you here.
“Sunshine on My Shoulders” by John Denver could have been blasting in the delivery room while my mom was pushing me out. It was the #1 song on my birthday. This site lets you see the #1 song for any particular date: your birthday, anniversary, etc. On the day Morris was born, it was “Let it Burn” by Usher, and my MD was doing the tootsie roll to “Lollipop” by Lil Wayne as she pulled a breeched Bronson out.
If you want to know how old you are in dog years, your birth tree, or when you were concieved (TMI for me) then check out this site. It will give you a gazillion tidbits regarding the day you were born. I will sleep much bettr tonight knowing that the Mayan Calendar long count date of my birthday is 184.108.40.206.7 which is 12 baktun 18 katun 0 tun 12 uinal 7 ki.
And last but not least, I just might grab some free grub at Black Angus, Captain D’s, Daphne’s Greek Cafe, or Souplantation then hop on over to Baskin Robbins for a free 2.5 scoop of ice cream. This site shows you all kinds of freebies you can get in your neighborhood or online for your birthday. The free swag doesn’t stop there. You can also check out the freebies for your kids and your pet.
So, don’t be a birthday scrooge on your special day. These sites will hopefully make getting older (and wiser) just a little bit of fun.
Smoothies are out. Fresh pressed juice is in. The latest craze in LA is juice. “Everyone” is doing it. The boys and I love it. Our addiction could be worse. Growing juicer, Kreation Juice has a juice bike, truck, kar, and 6 LA locations. They have recently added a 24 hour juice ATM to meet all […]
Mo and B have pretty much cruised through a year of school with their PACKiT lunchboxes. I am quite pleased they lasted this long, but my fave part is that they don’t have that funky lunchbox smell. The boys and I were super happy when PACKiT sent us 2 Mini Coolers. It has the same […]
The 2013 Oscars were kinda a bust for me. The minute I heard Hot Mama Sofia Vergara was hospitalized prior to the show and wouldn’t be rocking the Red Carpet, I should have prepared myself. It all went downhill from there. The E! preshow was terrible. I hate how Hollywood worships a dress simply because […]
