Krisch’s Restaurant is Worth Every Calorie

Krisch’s Restaurant and Ice Cream Parlour is a staple in Massapequa.  Stepping into the restaurant is like taking a step back in time.  The entrance is lined with mouthwatering chocolate treats that are impossible to pass up.  If you have to wait for a table, purchasing a few of these confectionary masterpieces is an awesome […]

My Love Affair With Sugar Has Come to an End

A couple of years ago I had some health issues which in turn caused weight gain.  Of course it wasn’t bad enough that I was sick, now I had to look in the mirror everyday and be reminded of it…awesome (input sarcasm).  Since then I have been trying to lose the weight.  Every Monday I […]

End summer boredom at Round 1 in Hicksville

  “I’m bored.”  I think this is one of the most irritating things to hear from my child during the summer.  Kids spend all year waiting for summer break and when it comes they suddenly have nothing to do.   In my quest to entertain my children (I know that’s wrong, but I need to […]

“The Sinner” on USA is a MUST see!

Usually the only time I tune in to channel USA is to watch reruns of “Modern Family.”  A few weeks ago….while watching a rerun of “Modern Family”…. I saw a preview for a short mini-series starring Jessica Biel. I’m a big fan of thrillers and the fact that Jessica Biel was starring in it definitely […]

Do You Hygge?

So I’m sitting in my living room today with rain pouring outside tapping against the glass, an unfinished puzzle in my den, my niece and nephew playing with my kids somewhere in the house, laundry waiting to be folded while I stare zombie like on my phone alternating between Facebook and Candy Crush.  Does this […]

Middle School Sucks…For us and them!

Remember that feeling the first night your baby slept through the night?  How about the first time they were able to dress themselves?  Tie their shoes?  Life finally seemed to be getting easier, right?  WRONG!  Just when you think you have raised a sweet, adorable kid…Middle school happens.  There is no other way to describe […]

Magic Sleek: Is it worth it?

For most, summer means sun, beach, BBQ, and vacations.  For me, summer means FRIZZ!  I basically spend June – September looking frightful.  I need the absolute perfect weather conditions for me to have a good hair day.  The slightest moisture in the air causes a major problem.  I have tried Keratin, which does amazing things […]

Make the Most of your Staycation: Floral Design Night

My mom and I recently signed up for a floral design night at Bethpage Florist and had such a fantastic time.  Before I arrived I was feeling hesitant about the class.  I’m not very creative and I imagine that is a necessary component of floral design.  However, as soon as we arrived the cheerful florists […]

Campagne House in Bethpage

If you are wondering where all your neighbors are on Friday night, chances are you’ll find them at the newest watering hole in town.  This new hot spot is all the rage for Bethpage.  Go there for lunch or dinner and check out their all too tempting dishes.  Their mouth watering share menu makes it […]

Get Hot & Sweaty on Date Night

I absolutely love date night.  With kids it is so easy to forget that at one time it was just the two of us.  Date night gives us a chance to reconnect, even if only for a couple of hours.  For us, date night has mostly consisted of dinner and drinks.  As my kids have […]
