  • Chocolate covered strawberries! Want some? (Giveaway)
    Tweet CONTEST CLOSED! Congratulations Sleepyheadmom! Indulgence goes part and parcel of the holiday season, right? Wel truth is that indulgence normally comes with a pretty apron and hours of work in the kitchen. I love decadent gifts but feel guilty to cave into them. There is just something about perfection in a little bite and as much as I love food, I love “little”...

  • Disney Pixar’s Brave is now available at on Demand!
    Tweet It felt forever that I was yearning for a movie like Brave: a girl who could have her own adventure without a prince. I managed to watch an early screening of Brave and loved it so and was intent on watching it again in the theater but my crazy schedule this year would not allow such indulgence and I resigned myself to wait a long time for it to be released on...

  • ASTRA Neighborhood Toy Store Day! It’s This Weekend!
    Tweet I barely have tucked away the minimal Halloween decorations I had up before I spied holiday decorations (Seriously Starbucks, I love you but those festive cups? Too soon) all over and even a friend on Facebook stating that she had already wrapped Christmas presents (totally means that more moms will be joining me in the slacker-mom club based on that benchmark)....

  • Life Is Good Festival 2012 – A Recap [VIDEO]!
    Tweet If there is one festival in a year that I will make sure I do not miss, it is the Life is Good festival. There were just too many pictures (as you can see by the post about the 2011 Life is Good festival recap)and I felt I could not do it justice so I put together a video of the event. Stay tuned to a separate post about my meeting with Kidz Bop!     Disclosure:...
