  • A Drive Through White Mountain National Forest, NH
    Tweet Living in New England we are not only pelted with snow, but we are also witness to one of the most beautiful places to be in Fall. It truly is breath taking to be able to see it for yourself. Simple drives to drop off your kid to school become a spectacle on its own. In fact it has been difficult to not stop the car and take pictures all the way. So whether you...

  • Finally, A Video Of Our Carnival Cruise!
    Tweet FINALLY – It is here. Those cruise pictures that everyone has been waiting for.  Yes, it has been long overdue, but you try to reduce the gazillion womderful memories into something that won’t take you all day to view. Anyway, it is here: And if you missed any of our recaps: http://www.mommyniri.com/2010/09/cruising-our-way-carnival-style/ http://www.mommyniri.com/2010/09/checking-in/ http://www.mommyniri.com/2010/09/floored-with-food/ http://www.mommyniri.com/2010/09/room-with-a-view/ http://www.mommyniri.com/2010/09/cruising-without-children/ http://www.mommyniri.com/2010/10/lifes-a-beach/

  • Life’s A Beach!
    Tweet Well it has been for the past 3 days. This summer the only beach day my kids have had is a playdate with a friend and a birthday party and I have well felt guilty about not being able to spend more time with my laptop than on activities with my kids. Oh, don’t conjure neglected kids in your mind, I am a SAHM so being 24/7 with my kids is what I do but lately...

  • Cruising With(out) Children!
    Tweet So I had enjoyed my earlier trip, without kids. Drawing from past experiences on planes and hotels I was not altogether looking forward to 8 days on a trip with my kids. Don’t get me wrong, I love my kids – to death – but I don’t always enjoy every little thing they do. Having 2 young and highly adventurous kids means they get into everything, and then...

  • Room With A View!
    Tweet The last time, or rather the first time I booked a cruise was in 2003. We had just bought our first house and I knew my fiscally focused husband would be penny watching so I wanted to make one big splurge. Trouble was coming from a poorer background splurging was not in my genes. So I indulged cautiously. I found a 3 day cruise in our BJ’s flyer (to those not...

  • Floored With Food!
    Tweet I love food! There I said it, deal with it. I am one of those people who thinks of food first when someone mentions a special occasion. I do. I could watch Food Network all day (but I don’t). Food is certainly my Achilles Heel. So when I decided to become a vegetarian about 12 years ago I had to psyche myself that being a vegetarian could be just fun. It was...

  • The White Elephant Hotel Residences At Nantucket!
    Tweet We were just drooling over our Atlantis media trip and already restless with very itchy feet so when we were invited to head to The White Elephant hotel residences at Nantucket there was no arm twisting involved. I must confess though hotels don’t make me very excited, well I better quickly add hotels with kids. See I am a light packer but for my kids I...

  • Daffodil Festival At Nantucket!
    Tweet We were fortunate enough to have our first trip to Nantucket coincide with the Daffodil Festival.  Blessed with very cooperative weather and vibrant colors we were in awe of the entire festival. No elbow-digging, foot stepping crowded event this was. Fun and frolic and a perfect family outing. A special thanks to the guys over at The White Elephant hotel residences...

  • Atlantis #JetAdventure Day 3: Beach Olympics And A Car Race Too!
    Tweet Wow, I knew there was a reason I broke up the Atlantis posts, but now I am hoping I can recall it all. Pretty tough considering I am staring out my window to seen snow on the ground. Sigh, I can almost feel the sea breeze on my face as I look at those “summer” Atlantis laundry still not put away. I refuse to put them away, in the hope that Spring appears...

  • Atlantis #JetAdventure Day 2: The AKA Club, Some Animals And Pottery Too!
    Tweet I know you would have been eagerly awaiting Day 2 after reading Day 1 but a stiff neck on my end has somewhat delayed things. Also after that whole experience with the dolphins it would be difficult to imagine how it could get any better. I was thinking the very same thing that night as I wearily went to bed by 9pm, which is not like the 2am bedtime I have at...

  • Atlantis #JetAdventure Day 1: My 1st JetBlue And A Dolphin Too!
    Tweet So I am back. It happened really so fast and yet so wonderful. If you don’t know I was invited to  a special media trip on behalf of Jet Blue, Lego and Atlantis. I know what you are thinking: Lucky girl. And you know what you would be correct. I have been thinking for days, while I tackle my mountain of laundry that awaits every vacationer, of how to share...

  • 10 Reasons To Visit New Hampshire This Spring
    Tweet I live in New England, close enough to New Hampshire to be thrilled I can venture to the serenity anytime. Whenever someone mentions NH lush greenery for some reason always fills my mind. If I was like any other gal shopping would be forefront in my mind, but these days the body is not all that willing to flaunt a dozen outfits that just don’t fit. What...
