Jury Duty. Part 2

So I made it. (Read part one if you have no idea what I am talking about) I parked the car, grabbed my bag and walked through security. The guard told me that jury duty was upstairs. I walked the flight of stairs and turned to see over eighty people in line. My first thought […]

It’s 3am – November 15th, 2014

It is 2:48am. The house is pitch quiet. Once again I have to pee but I am scared to get out of bed because if I wake the dog all hell breaks loose. These are my thoughts: 1. I know I should not say this out loud because it is definitely going to come back […]

Lulu’s Clean Eating Thanksgiving

I still can’t believe it is November. What I can’t believe even more is that is almost Thanksgiving. It just so happens Thanksgiving is the one holiday I enjoy hosting. I am not stuck with matzoh balls, gefilite fish and brisket. I can really go all out and create a healthy, delicious dinner that leaves […]

I had no idea what she meant because I am FAR from balanced but after Susie explained I knew I had to take part! Susie explains her weekly project as: “The Balance Project is a series of relevant […]

The Fresh Market in Livingston!

Today I was invited to a preview of Fresh Market before the grand opening tomorrow in Livingston. I have been patiently awaiting for this store to open.

Can we discuss Homeland?

If you didn’t watch the season premiere yet, don’t read this! But if you did, let’s discuss! 1. The Brody Baby a.ka. Frannie. Did I miss why they named her that? Frannie? Sorry if that is your name but that is a tough name for an infant.  Also not so cute (I know I am […]
