StorkSak Noa Diaper Bag | Review

I recently got my hands on the StorkSak Noa diaper bag.  I was really excited about this because the diaper bag I received at my baby shower for David, while adorable, was never quite functional enough. It was big and bulky and hard to carry. As soon as I got my Noa, I busted it out and was so impressed. In addition to all the traditional ‘baby’ stuff (changing pad, etc) it came with a mini organizer. I also got a quilted stroller organizer.  I was very impressed with the value for the......

Oh Baby(iators)

We were first introduced to the world of Babiators at a maternity leave lunch date. Several of us had babies at the same time and were on maternity leave together. We sat outside and my little guy got the bad spot, right in the sun. So the ladies collected supplies for us. A frilly, girly bonnet, a muslin to drape and bust up the sun, and a pair of Babiators....

Your New Best Friend Has Your Back

My mom used to brag that from the time I could walk and had my balance, she made me carry my own ‘stuff.’ Wipes, diapers, blankey, etc. She got me a tiny backpack in the early 80’s and relieved herself of the burden of a diaper bag. I didn’t think it was silly, per se, but let’s say that I didn’t get it. Now I get it. Between my purse and lunch and workout clothes and his nap supplies, extra clothes, wipes, lunch, etc… and then carrying the wiggly toddler through the......

Baby Gear

I get totally overwhelmed when picking out baby gear. I have, on several occasions, been researching products and looking at different ones, gotten overwhelmed and bought whatever I had seen first. There are so many options out there! I do love my some BabyGuyNYC and Lucie’s List for recommendations (OMG I love BabyGuy boxes and he’s why we got the UppaBaby system) but it can all be SO overwhelming! One resource that I have found that I cannot live without is Diapers.com (and Soap.com). Seriously. It’s like Amazon but it’s baby focused......

Of Babies and Husbands

I have a husband and I have a scootchy, army crawling almost toddler. They both get into plenty of messes. Between my husband’s garden and CrossFit workout clothing, he makes plenty of laundry. I’m always looking for ways to get the stink out… I gave up on stains on those a while ago. But now, with an scootchy baby and a house full of hardwood, I have a new challenge… getting nugget’s clothing looking like new. I’m a big fan of Purex but truth be told, lately, I’m a big fan of......

Purex Post: Dial Hand Soap (GIVEAWAY)

As you may know, I am very fortunate to be a part of a program called Purex Insiders. They often will send products for me to test and talk about along with some coupons. In this case, I was sent two Dial products to try and blog about. One was their new Miracle Oil Hand Soap and the other was the Sugar Cane Husk Scrub. I was a bit skeptical about the miracle oil because I wasn’t sure what kind of residue would be left behind. I am REALLY particular when it......

Update to American Express Post

A while ago, I posted a letter about our issues with American Express and United Airlines. You can read it here. Here is our update… We were kindly contacted by some folks at Amex who put some of their best people on this situation. The agent who helped us was very kind and worked very hard for us. But it boils down to this, airlines are notoriously difficult and not interested in being the best at customer service. They were unable to do anything for us but did compensate us for being......

Review: Mayim’s Rainbow Cabbage Salad with Tahini-Lemon Dressing

As you read in this blog – Review: Mayim’s Vegan Table – Kosher Hubby and I each selected a recipe we wanted to make out of Mayim’s new cookbook to review. This is the one Kosher Hubby chose. He wanted something without pasta, bread, potatoes, etc. We just don’t have those items in our diet, or at least very often. He chose this because he enjoys cabbage salad and thought it would be a great addition to our dinner. If you want to see my choice, it is here – Review: Mayim’s......

Review: Mayim’s Shepherd’s Pie

As you read in this blog – Review: Mayim’s Vegan Table – Kosher Hubby and I each selected a recipe we wanted to make out of Mayim’s new cookbook to review. This is the one I chose. I got really excited because for a long time, I thought Shepherd’s Pie would probably be a delicious dish but it was never Kosher (since most include ground beef and dairy). Mayim’s recipe offered me the opportunity to try something I couldn’t before. She says it serves four. It lasted more than a week in......
