It’s been eight days since we officially dropped our daughter off at college and as a Freshman parent newbie, I have…
Well, here you go again. It’s the summer and that can only mean one thing. I have to lose weight…and…
The summer is almost here and for me, that can only mean one thing – it’s time to hit the…
I don’t know about you, but I hate going to the gym. I hate feeling self conscious. I hate going to a class and feeling like the most out of shape person there. I hate seeing my reflection in the mirrors and I hate screaming kids in locker rooms and I hate walking into a spin class and thinking there’s a bike available but in reality, three quarters of the bikes are broken and a lot of the participants are on their third class of the morning and they’re not going anywhere.
When it comes to health, there are certain instances in your life that stop you dead in your tracks. For me and my daughter, there’s only one thing that can keep us from cruising through our busy lives — gastrointestinal pain. While I don’t talk about it among friends or strangers for that matter, I typically don’t have many issues when it comes to my gut. But when I do, I pretty much dread that feeling where all you do is pray the pain will stop and you vow never to eat whatever got you into that mess in the first place.
Recently, my husband and a good friend of his opened a 25,000 square foot sports facility in New Rochelle, New York called A-Game Sports. The space is pretty amazing with indoor turf for soccer, lacrosse, baseball, softball, strength training and more. If you play on a team sport, there’s always something for everyone. But what I happen to love about the space is that there are tons of places for parents, grandparents and kids who have been taken along for the ride to hang out, relax and play or in the words of the world’s largest tabletennis brand Killerspin…it’s time to #UnPlugNPlay!
Perhaps your family received the magazine at home each month or read it in the doctor’s office. Either way, Highlights for Children has been a part of many of our childhoods. Devoted fans know that the Hidden Pictures puzzle has always been on Page 14. It’s still there after 70 years! Can you believe no two puzzles have ever been repeated?
Recently, I was introduced to an amazing company called KillerSpin which offers a diverse array of ping pong table options for enthusiasts and professionals. The team at KillerSpin was nice enough to offer two different options to try out. One was a professional table that we’ll be sharing details about soon, but the first is a portable table that’s perfect for living rooms, dens, basements and even when you’re visiting friends and family!
When it comes to computer usage in our home, I have to admit, we are all hopelessly addicted. My husband and I rely on our computers for both of our businesses (yes, two entrepreneurs living under one roof can be stressful to say the least). My daughter, who is a junior in high school is always using her computer for homework, research, group chats, Netflix streaming and much more. And then there’s my son. As an eighth grader, we’ve made it clear that we won’t be investing in an expensive computer for him until he heads to high school but he does still need one to complete homework assignments and projects.
If you are like me and have thousands of photos of your family on your phone, your hard drive, CD’s and SIM cards but have never actually taken the time to create albums or even framed photos for you or your loved ones, I am here to say, stop digitally hoarding those photos and take five minutes out of your day today to order a holiday gift for yourself or your parents that will literally blow them away.
