Lulu’s Ultimate Camp Visiting Day Guide 2015

I can’t believe this will be the third summer since I wrote “The Running of the Jews“.  As most of you know this is one of my favorite articles to write because the “stuff” just gets better and better each year. I am assuming most of you have had your first phone call so you should […]

The Camp Bus Departure 2015

It’s 5:40pm Saturday, June 27th. The kids left 8 hours ago. The house is quiet, it’s pouring and Greg is sleeping on the porch. I foresee this is how the summer is going to play out. VERY QUIETLY.  I have had two Bloody Mary’s, a pound of junk food and a blowout. After the last […]

Over the past year, I have been spending quality time in the “Livingston Mom’s” Facebook Group. Everyday someone asks for a recommendation. Whether it is for the best photographer, best landscapers, best shoe repair, best place to buy coffee, eat pizza, roofer, divorce attorney, etc etc etc. ALL DAY LONG. The issue was if you […]

Billy Joel Sings A Lullaby

Last night we took our kids to their first concert.  It wasn’t a question of whom we were going to take them to see, somehow Greg and I always knew it would be Billy Joel.  I have seen Billy in concert four times. Not a record-breaking number but more than most artists I have seen. […]

Living Fitness in Livingston

I believe the key to changing your body (besides eating right of course) is mixing up your workouts. As much as I love Bari and yoga, I needed to find something else to help me with all my problem areas. A friend of mine recommended a trainer that she LOVED. I wasn’t sure about going […]
