Run, Forrest, Run

Visiting Day 2014. Excited parents from all over the country traveled near and far to visit their beloved kids at camp. Some drove, some flew, some ferried, and some ran like Forrest. But everyone made it. I have decided to break Visiting Day into two posts. This post will be the one that captures many […]

The Devil wears Angelrox

I was at the beach few weeks ago and ran into my friend Randi who was wearing the coolest outfit over her bathing suit. I asked her where she got her ensemble and she began to tell me about this line called Angelrox that I never heard of before.  Remember a million years ago there […]

I was trying to figure out what to bring to a July 4th party today. Every year I normally make cake balls which are a crowd pleaser and never a let down. This year I figured since I joined the CSA and received strawberries and rhubarb for the past three weeks I would use them […]

The Departure of the Camp Bus

This past week has been total lunacy. Between the kids home, last-minute shopping for camp, haircuts, ortho appointments and dentist appointments it has been crazy and chaotic. And, it didn’t help I got a brand new puppy last week  that I want to kill at night. But I won’t delve into that and complain because […]

3am with Amy Selling – June 23rd

It’s 2:55am, where am I? In my car. Can you believe it? ITS 3AM AND I AM IN MY CAR!!! Why? Because I can’t bear to listen to the dog cry for one more minute. Day 7 and the dog HATES the crate. Hate is an understatement. The screaming, crying and pawing to get out […]

The Miracle Of Challah

Terri explained that once a month she gathers a bunch of friends and takes orders for this extraordinary challah. Terri then has a pickup time in which you […]

The Goodie Guide to Trader Joe’s

3am with Amy Selling – May 31st

It’s 3am – instead of this fox screaming, I have the parrot jungle outside of my window or maybe 30 hummingbirds. When I moved from the city to the suburbs I didn’t realize I was moving to the zoo. These are my thoughts:   First thing I did was check Facebook at 3am, not sure […]
