Hurrican Sandy part 1??

We are batting down the hatches. Jack got his big boy bed set up today and Thomas sheets ordered.  Now I just have to swap bedding over for Charlotte to his old crib.

We have been busy the past 2 weeks since last updates. 3 halloween functions (hopefully we'l have a 4th Wednesday with trick or treating). Bronx Zoo trip...awesome time! Tim's home on vacation for almost a month total, so we are also loving him being home.

I am organizing pictures now and will post tons soon promise.  xoxo

Little People Palooza at the Bronx Botanical Gardens

Saturday the 13 Fisher Price was hosting a LP Palooza at the Botanical Gardens, my sister Kim and I decided to bring the kids a few weeks back.
Saturday morning, we picked her up, got our Starbucks and set out to the Gardens. Jack was ready to see his favorite toys in action, Michael, Eddie and Sonya were there Live singing and dancing. Both kids were mesmerized by them, watching intently at first and them Jack danced in the on the steps, clapping and singing along too.

It was a short show, so after we head to the Children's Garden so Jack could run around and they had other toys and FP sponsored play area, parade and pumpkins everywhere- carved out or made into figures. Jack and Charlotte had a ball. We didn't have enough time or we would have stayed much longer, going back is on our list of things to do.


Day out with Thomas

We decided to go to The Day out With Thomas in PA September 16th.  My parents were gracious enough to order tickets and book the hotel we'd stay in over night. So off we went! The hotel was awesome, we plan on going back in the spring time to stay there again, dosimeter outlet shopping and Dutch Wonderland Amusement park too!

Here is a recap of some of the events with Thomas!

Quinny Yezz

I participated in a Focus Group over 3 weeks for moms in/near various cities all over the world.  I represented NY among a few other moms,  on the final week we were told it was a focus group for Quinny strollers. I was told from the beginning I would be paid $40 gift card to Amazon when the community was completed with possibilities of prizes.  Little did I know I would be selected to be among the moms to receive a new stroller!

It is their lightweight travel in mind umbrella stroller, with a price tag of $225USD, a steep price for an umbrella stroller, but it keeps up with the Quinny reputation and price tags of being awesome and expensive. I received the Red Signal one and it took literally 3 minutes to set up, just add the seat on.  Only complaints/issues is the ease of opening and closing, it is a bit stiff and take a minute to open/close, others reviewed this stroller with the same complaints.  This stroller is not on the market in the US just yet though, soon I am sure.   It is made especially for the urban communities and city life in mind, folding up to praticially nothing and with a strap to carry on your shoulder up stairs or down and onto buses, cities or trains.

Project Life..starting to get creative

This year I did Project Life, I had the binder and a picture(s) for each day of the year.  There are TONS of freebie templates and ideas on the internet, espeically now on Pinterest.

So I decided now that I got the newest photoshop to make some of my own, starting with cards that are the month with a mini calendar. They can be used for the start of each new month or however else you please.
