The Greatest Show on Earth #PSF Give Me Your Best Shot


  I’m exhausted. But it’s a good exhausted. I literally just walked in the door from the greatest show on earth…I mean Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus. My family was invited to come to the circus and we had a blast (yes, our tickets were free…but all opinions and enthusiasm are my own). […]

Spring Break Flash Back – PSF Give Me Your Best Shot


  I am counting down the minutes before my kids head to Spring Break. I can’t wait! I’m trying to get things ready so that I can be out of the house as much as possible for the whole week. I found these pictures from Spring 2009, when my kids were a few feet shorter. […]

A Sister Heads Home #PSF Give Me Your Best Shot


  This Sunday we had a couple of very special sisters over for some crock pot Cuban shredded pork burritos. One of them has become a close friend over the last few months and we were sad to be saying good-bye. On Wednesday she finished her mission and headed back home. I know she’s enjoying […]

Spring Break at Medieval Times BOGO – PSF Give Me Your Best Shot


  We LOVE Medieval Times. Yes, this latest family trip to Medieval Times Dinner and Tournament was complimentary, but our enthusiasm for the awesomeness of Medieval Times is 100% authentic. I’ll apologize upfront for the ridiculous amount of pictures from this latest trip. I swear I deleted dozens of decent pictures before choosing the photos […]

It’s Officially Spring! #PSF Give Me Your Best Shot


  It’s hard to believe that Monday of THIS WEEK was a snow day. We woke up Monday morning to 8 more inches of snow and yet another day off school. Just the week before we had all hoped and prayed that THAT snow storm would be our last of the year. This week, we’re […]

Birthday Traditions {PSF Give Me Your Best Shot}


  Birthdays are kind of a big deal around here. Especially when you’re a kid. This week, we celebrated my youngest daughter’s 11th birthday. For some odd reason, she wasn’t in the mood to let anyone know about it – she wanted to keep the birthday completely hush-hush. But not at home. At home, she […]

Where Recipes Go To Die #PSF Give Me Your Best Shot

  This is my life lately: Wake up. Wake kids up. Get kids to school. Update social media. Shower (if I’m lucky). Blog. Cook. Take pictures of food. Eat food. Run kids around in the car. Put kids to bed. Blog. Sleep. Start over.   I do the necessaries, I cook food to feature on […]

The Annual Blue and Gold Banquet #PSF Give Me Your Best Shot

cub scout blue and gold banquet

  Tonight was the annual Blue and Gold Banquet for my Cub Scout son. It has been a few years since we’ve has a Blue and Gold since my older son moved on to Boy Scouts a while ago. This year’s Blue and Gold theme was Inventiveness (or Inventors or Inventions or something like that)… […]

Winter Photo Walk {PSF Give Me Your Best Shot}

winter photo walk

  Despite the fact that I had a streak of bad luck with ice this week (read all about my crazy walk to school here) I was eager to get out of the house with my friend, Lisa, today when she asked if I’d like to have a “date” with our cameras. Lisa and I […]

A Snow-Covered Central Park


  I feel kind of funny posting pictures of snow in New York City when we’re snowed in with mountains of snow right outside our front door. It’s funny to see how everyone copes with a snow day after we’ve had so many snow days this year. Daughter number one is enjoying the day off […]
