Teacher Appreciation Day is one of my favorite days of the year. There's no one I appreciate more than my kids' teachers. Having spent 11 years in the classroom, I know that teachers do not need this day to feel appreciated, because most feel
I met this vendor at two different holiday events; one in Westchester and one in Greenwich. I was shocked that these "mommy necklaces" had not taken off in Westchester. Another vendor in the area sells them too. I purchased a necklace from each of
We don't keep a calendar of events. We considered it and realized that every other site has one and that's where people go for "things to do." However, the other sites usually list things for the kids-- Not the moms. So we've decided to publish

With spring holidays around the corner, I'm finding it hard to get motivated to locate recipes and prepare for the big meal. Today is a snow day, and I have comfort food on my mind. I'm making homemade cookies and muffins and preparing my
Some of the best pics on Instagram are pics of food. I never post what I cook and rarely post what I eat. But I love looking at others pics. I started following this food account and learned that it's created by
I've been taking pilates reformer classes for years. No matter where I have gone, it involves an extra charge beyond the gym membership, as it's considered private/semi-private group training. In the past 7-8 years, I have taken these classes at larger gyms such as NYSC,
Being the mom of a really girlie girl, I never knew the hours of fun (and quiet) LEGO could provide. Also never knew that it could (and would) eventually consume my entire first floor. What started as a shelf for LEGO creations quickly transformed
I love structure, schedules and plans. But I also love being creative and spontaneous, sharing a good find when I want to. I realized last week that I have been lacking in the "eat" posts and made it a priority for this week. I've
As parents, we complain that our kids are tech-obsessed and rely too much on their devices, yet we are very much the same. They spend an excessive amount of time on screens, tablets, connected to wi-fi
Every Friday night, I look over the topics that we've posted to go out in our e-blast on Saturday morning and I notice that I didn't touch on every single category (eat, shop, play.) In an ideal world, I would post 3 times each week,
Last month, I was looking at my March calendar and realized that I needed some new and fresh topics. I needed guest bloggers. People who would write about topics that women are interested in, related to eating, shopping and playing in and around Westchester.

A couple of times a year, Emma Westchester and Athleta Scarsdale team up to bring out some #momslikesus for a Shopping Event. It's a nice way to get to meet some local women, who are starting businesses or working as independent consultants. The common
