Big Apple Circus in Boston {Giveaway}

Spring break is right around the corner and I am already planning my week off with the kids.

Thankful Thursday


Good morning! Has this week flown by for you like it has me? Before children, it felt like forever to get to the end of a work week. After children, I swear I just blink and the week is over. Maybe it's just because I want to pause my life right now and savor every moment. I found this quote on Pinterest and love it: "The bad news is time flies. The good news is you're the pilot." Here's Continue Reading

What a Treat! Harvard Sweet Boutique

It's always fun when UPS comes to your door with something unexpected but it's really a treat when you get a package from Harvard Sweet Boutique. My UPS driver came on the perfect day too: one when I was craving sweets but had nothing in the house besides my kids' fruit snacks (which would never cut it when you're craving cookies). When I opened up the brown box and saw the beautifully wrapped Continue Reading

Providence Family Fun with the Harlem Globetrotters #GlobieFamily

Now that we are a family of four with two toddlers, we are always looking for family friendly activities to do together. We've visited local children's museums, aquariums and zoos but there is something extra-special about seeing shows that come on tour. This year we have been lucky enough to attend Disney on Ice, Yo Gabba Gabba and are very excited that the Harlem Globetrotters are coming into Continue Reading

Our La-Z-Boy Playroom Re-do is Complete!

Finished Playroom

We have been living with our new La-Z-Boy sleeper for a few weeks now and I honestly don't know how we lived without it for so long. The new sofa has completed our playroom/Mom room and made the space an essential living space of our family. The sofa is so comfortable that the kids nap on it, my husband has slept on it and it's big enough that my friend and I can both comfortably share it during a Continue Reading

Thankful Thursday

HAPPY THURSDAY!! It's a beautiful day in Rhode Island and we are gearing up for an epic snowstorm tomorrow evening through Saturday. I can't wait! This morning, I headed to Target to stock up on milk & bread (such a Rhody thing to do) and the essentials like snacks and even some sleds I snagged for 30% off. There is so much to be thankful for: a toasty warm house to head into Continue Reading

It’s Arrived! Our new edition: the La-Z-Boy sleeper sofa!


One of the conditions my husband set when we built our home was that he *HAD* to have a finished basement to house his man-cave. I was fine with that because I envisioned the other half two-thirds of the basement as a playroom for the kids. The basement has been wonderful for our family, however we have always missed something in the playroom: a couch. When I hang out down there I'm always Continue Reading

We got our sillies out at YO GABBA GABBA LIVE!

yo gabba gabba

Jackson is still dancing, 4 hours after the show ended. We saw Yo Gabba Gabba Live in Boston at the Orpheum Theater today and simply put: had a BLAST. As soon as the kids saw DJ Lance Rock come on stage, they were dancing in the aisles (or in Sidney's case, in my lap). We happened to sit behind my friend Kameron from and our kids became fast friends. Jackson had a new Continue Reading
