Homemade Beans & Rice

My little guy is about as brand loyal as one year olds get! When it comes to food, he’s pretty much obsessed with the Plum Organics pouches. And of these pouches, his absolute favorite is the Plum World Baby Mexico pouch. The ingredients are beans and rice with sweet corn, red bell pepper, cilantro and lime. Pretty fancy for baby food, eh? Well at $1.30+ per pouch I thought, maybe I can make a close approximation for the nugget for less per serving. I found these recipes online and thought I could......

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......

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......

Why American Express Lost Our Business (and United too)

This blog was never a place to just air grievances. And I promise that is not what we have become. As I slip into my new groove, this blog and Kosher, She Eats will get back on track. However, I have found that this is the best way to broadcast a large amount of information. So … here is the letter my husband sent to American Express and why AmEx lost our business. Names and amounts have been redacted to protect all involved. To Whom It May Concern:...

Update on the No Pants Dance

I was over at my favorite financial advice website, LearnVest, reading an article about this woman’s quest for a perfect credit score and I realized… I just stopped my No Pants Dance updates when I got engaged. I mean, to be honest, I was a little bit distracted by my handsome fiancé and our wedding and then our honeymoon and now our adorable puppy BUT that is no excuse. Let’s start with a recap. I decided to do the No Pants Dance in May of last year. Read about that here. Then......

Etsy Wins For Details

I have just found so much success on Etsy for details for our wedding. I wanted a wedding hanger for my dress… found it on Etsy. I liked the history behind the wedding dress label… found it on Etsy. Here’s that history: In the 20’s and 30’s, couture gown designers starting designing personalized labels for their clients, and attaching them inside the gowns. Now brides can use this special touch to make wedding gowns truly their own. When the tradition of labels for wedding gowns started, it was seen as the last......

Ketubah!

Ketubah!

We did it! Whew! Pulled the trigger on the not only the ketubah but on the language as well. Harder than I thought it would be. Think about it. You have to buy a piece of art, that is going to hang on your wall forever, that will extol your love for each other (in a non-cheesy way) but that meets the legal requirements of Jewish law so if we ever move to Israel, they believe we are legally married. That’s a lot of pressure on one little piece of art! After......

We Found THE Band!

They are super versatile, passionate musicians and we are excited to have them rock out at our wedding! It’s coming together!...
