  • 77Kids Adds Kiddie Fun In Newly Opened Stores!
    Tweet Yesterday I attended a store opening for 77Kids. I admitted to the kind folks over at 77Kids that I had never used their clothing on my 2 girls then stopped the moment I uttered those words. I totally had forgotten that when I took part in the 77Kids Do Good day in Boston they sent a t-shirt each for my girls. I recall loving how soft they were but also felt they...

  • Mars Needs Moms
    Tweet I attended a screening for the movie just before I went to Disney so needless to say this post is a little delayed. Firstly I loved what an amazing build up to the screening this was since the screening had a pre-celebration with Radio Disney, science crafts and also mini-massages for mom and dad. Can you tell that it would be a fabulous time already? 3D movies...

  • Drinking Your Nutella?
    Tweet I was one of those late bloomers. I only tried Nutella a year ago, which would be a cardinal sin considering I am somewhat of a chocolate snob and a nut-oholic so Nutella should have been an obvious choice. Of course that totally meant I would miss it – which is exactly why I am the last to know about anything. My favorite nut is by far the hazelnut which...

  • 7 Ways To Annoy Your Friends In Social Media!
    Tweet Ok, I get it.The world is a smaller place thanks to social media, and I have more friends now than I ever did. This also means that because my friends (and family) read my blog it leaves little space for me to really blog about what’s on my mind without offending someone. On that note my newer family of friends has somehow managed to get on my nerves, with...

  • HOP Releases April 1st – Win A HOP Prize Pack!
    Tweet CONTEST CLOSED! Congratulations Richa! There are few movies that you really look forward to see, and with children in tow the options become slimmer. Add to the mix the need for quality cinema and seriously you would need a fine tooth comb to find something. It is sad that I have to admit I missed the screening to HOP, but happy to say I was at Disney World  at...

  • Tangled: Win It On Blu-Ray + DVD!
    Tweet CONTEST CLOSED! Congratulations Kelly! So you know how much I love the movie Tangled if you saw my review on the screening some months back. Well the truth is we have gone back and watched it a few times since then. In fact I had to see a few bad movies to appreciate good quality cinema. To say that I am eagerly awaiting the DVD is an understatement indeed. Anyway...

  • Tacky Tuesday: Spitting In Public!
    Tweet You know I announced the series Tacky Tuesday earlier today so here is one of my pet peeves.  Spitting in public.  I don’t care if you spit out the car window or while walking or whenever – it is gross and it makes me want to throw up seeing it. I don’t care if you think it is butch and you just “have to do it” it is a filthy habit....

  • Tacky Tuesday!
    Tweet My Friday 5 series, when I launched MommyNiri.com was so popular but I could barely keep up. It has not died but gone into hibernation and will certainly resurface given the right, ahem, topic. I try not to be negative in my blog but have a right to whine somewhere. Well I hear it from my kids all day so I should have an avenue too.  So I decided to create a Tacky...

  • Sometimes A Hotel Is The Destination!
    Tweet A few years ago I wanted a get-away. I wanted a road trip 4-5 hours away to get to a place I liked. Hubby, obviously, was not in agreement (surprise, surprise). He bemoaned the effort, and the expense, and the expense of the effort. Then he suggested a local hotel in another town that we had good memories of meeting in. Thus became a (cheaper) holiday that was...

  • TJ Maxx Serves Up Their Spring Collection!
    Tweet I was fortunate enough to be invited to attend a Spring collection showing from TJ Maxx and Marshalls. I have yet to spend the giftcard they kindly gave me after the event and when you see some of what they had on display you can see why it was confusing what to choose. Thanks to these fresh designs my Spring has already been kicked up a notch!

  • Just Ask! Screenings For Breast and Ovarian Cancer Campaign! (Win A Flip Video Camera)
    Tweet CONTEST CLOSED!! Congratulations Aleksandra! Sometimes we feel helpless. We want to help but are not in a strong (financial) capacity to make donations. Then campaigns step in and offer to do it for you and it becomes easier. Say clicking a “like” button gave $1 towards testing/screening for women who would otherwise not be able to afford it. (up to...

  • Seeking Social Good!
    Tweet Sometimes you get an invitation that changes everything. Attending an event where there is no showcasing a product, or expectations of blogging or tweeting about the event may be unheard of normally. In fact I actually chose not to tweet etc while at the event because there is nothing like a 140 characters to NOT deliver the full message and thwart any good message...

  • What A Week. What A Year. What A Blast!
    Tweet Have you missed me? I’ve missed me. It is not like I am ignoring you, seriously not. I have been cooking up some interesting stuff. Some I will let you in yet, and some in a bit (let’s just say the ideas are still simmering). Want to know what’s been going on? Happy birthday MommyNiri.com! I started blogging in March 2008, and launched the MommyNiri.com...
