Billy Joel on Howard Stern

Billy Joel on Howard Stern

I love Billy Joel. Hands down he is one of my favorite performers ever. Seeing him in concert literally made me pee my pants (TMI?). I had tickets to see him again on March 4, 2003, and unfortunately was detained in a hospital room after having given birth the day before. In all the craziness [...]

Girls Night Movie Review: Labor Day

Peach Pie

Some time late last year I saw a list of books being made into movies for release in 2014 and I grabbed a few on the list to read. One of those was Labor Day. I really liked the book and looked forward to seeing the movie but just never got around to it while [...]

Age Appropriate? The Fault in Our Stars

What Age is Appropriate for The Fault in Our Stars

With all of the talk about the movie coming out this summer, “The Fault In Our Stars” (by John Green) is getting a lot of attention. While it’s billed as “Young Adult” fiction, you may be wondering what age the book is really appropriate for. The short answer is that it depends on the kid. [...]

My daughter accidentally discovered a great free offer for you last night. Her friends were talking about this cool game, Despicable Me Minion Rush, and she wanted to know if she could download the app to her tablet. After checking it out, we told her that she could since it was free and had good [...]

Throwing a #DisneySide Karaoke Party

Disney Party Food

For an afternoon, my tween and teen (and all their friends) actually acted like kids again and not little adults. I can’t thank Disney enough for that! When I first found out that I was selected by MomSelect to host a DisneySide @Home Celebration, I was so excited. Then as I started seeing the box [...]

Divergent Shirts at CafePress

Divergent Shirts

One of my favorite book series of the last few years was the Divergent Trilogy (except the final book, which I am still on the fence about). The first book in the series, Divergent, was one of those books that I absolutely could not put down. Most of my friends who read Young Adult books [...]
