Bring Your Kids To A NY Liberty Game! #ShowUp @NYLiberty @KidzVuz #Ad

    Last week my family had the pleasure of going to see a NY Liberty game at Madison Square Garden.  Although we are native New Yorkers, we don't often get to go cheer on our home teams due to our everyday work and school schedules.  Thankfully, the summertime is the perfect time to share these activities together.       My husband, father in law and son all decided that they would go see the game together since they are all huge basketball fans.  It was so sweet to see three generations of the men in this family heading out to watch the NY Liberty do their thing.  The Liberty have qualified for the WNBA Playoffs in 13 of its 19 years.  This is a fact that my son won't let me forget.     Led by Head Coach Bill Laimbeer, the Liberty are determined to improve on last year’s performance with top WNBA talent like Tina Charles, Epiphanny Prince and Essence Carson, veterans like Swin Cash and Tanisha Wright, as well as new … [Read more...]

Adventures Of A New York City Family In The Mazda CX-9! #DriveSTI @MazdaUSA @DriveSTI #Ad

      It's no secret that we had an extremely rough winter here in New York City.  Aside from our hectic schedules throughout the work week, we also had to maneuver around all the snow and harsh weather to plan creative outings as a family.  The Mazda CX-9 was the perfect fit for our family to be able to spend quality time together this season!  Not to mention its gorgeous leather trim interior which was love at first sight for my husband and I!     Since I have an eleven year-old and a nine year-old, they always want to invite their friends and cousins on outings with the family.  That usually means that, aside from our medium-sized family of four, Hubby and I have to make sure that we have enough room in the car to safely accommodate everyone on road trips.  After all, not having enough space can make us lose serious cool points with the Tweens!     So we all packed in to the Mazda CX-9 and headed around New York for some weekend fun.  If you are familiar with the area … [Read more...]

Winter Fashion Tips For Kids! #Troop8X #HTC8X

    When it comes to dressing warmly during the Winter, my boys drive me completely crazy.  Sure, I always make sure that they have all the warm coats, hats, scarves, and gloves that they need to wear during the cold weather.  Whether or not they actually wear them all the time or keep from losing them a few times throughout the season, is another story.     As you can see from the photo below, it can get quite cold and frosty during the winter months here in New York City.  We experience cold conditions along with snow and freezing rain.  It's important to not only keep warm during this weather but to also look great doing it!  When it comes to kids, nothing says fashionable like donning outerwear and accessories that have their favorite cartoon characters on them.         My younger son loves wearing his Angry Birds hat and, thank goodness, because it's the only one he will wear this Winter!  On the other hand, the best way to get my older son to cover his head … [Read more...]
