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

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

Post-Sandy “Day of the Docs”

Pinterest comes in so handy... mark your Rx bottle with the correct amount of doses so you don't lose track!

First off, thanks to everyone for reaching out to make sure we were ok in Sandy's wake. We are fortunate to not have any damage, but I feel sick over everyone's loss in NY & NJ. I'm sending lots of prayers their way and hope relief comes soon. Since the last week was all about Sandy, it appears today is officially "Day of the Doctors." It started off with a call from Dr B. (the plastic Continue Reading

Week in My Life: Sunday {last day!}


A better title for this post would be: "The Calm Before the Storm." Everyone knows Hurricane Sandy is headed our way. Not specifically Rhode Island, but the entire Northeast. It is a pretty scary storm. I try not to worry though, because there is nothing I can do except for be prepared as possible. We have bottled water, non-perishable foods the kids like, batteries for our 2 remaining (working) Continue Reading

Week in My Life: Wednesday

Adventuroo WIML wednesday

Totally failed as a blogger today and forgot to take any pictures until 1pm. Jackson was sick. I got a much needed mani/pedi. Our driveway got a top-coat of asphalt and I realized the abundance of freshly-fallen leaves while trudging through my front lawn with newly polished toes. Watched my kids play together (also known as Jackson yelling at Sidney for every little move) and then got ready for a Continue Reading

Sidney’s Cupcake Birthday Party
