I just came back from an amazing family reunion hosted by my wonderful cousin Jen. I got to see cousins that I hadn’t seen in a while (and some that I hadn’t ever met before, how incredible is that?). As I sat and talked with people who I was only connected to by our shared… Continue reading How Not To Be A Jerk
Let’s start off the year (the Gregorian year, whatever, you know what I mean) with some interesting links, a review, and a giveaway! Not in that order, though.
A few days ago, as I was nursing the baby, the phone rang. I got up, still nursing, walked over and answered the phone. It was my husband, and when I told him what I was doing, we both laughed. Nursing child #4 is very different compared to child #1! With my first, I would… Continue reading Top Four Essential Breastfeeding Supplies
This morning I thought I locked myself out of the house. I wanted to warm up the car before the kids got in it, but I had to use the set of car keys that doesn’t have a house key on it, because I needed the set with the house key to, you know, lock… Continue reading On Not Rushing Things, and a Kids’ Passover Cookbook Giveaway!
This year, I learned a more refined way to describe the phenomenon of picky preschoolers from my son’s nursery school teacher. Instead of calling them “picky eaters,” she says they have “discriminating palates.” Isn’t that nice? After I shared some of the struggles of dinner time at our house, many mothers shared with me that… Continue reading Cute Dinner Trays for Kids – Giveaway!
Well, Pesach is just two weeks away! Some of us are up to our ears in preparations, and others of us are still in denial waiting a bit longer to begin. My friend Ruchi has an excellent post on doing Pesach cleaning in one day and maintaining one’s sanity. Chaya Kurtz has a guest post on… Continue reading Giveaway: Let My RV Go! A Frum Pesach Novel.
When Miriam over at Overtime Cook contacted me about participating in a Rosh Hashana Blog Party, I was excited, but then I thought, “hmmmm, this seems like a food blog thing, and my blog isn’t really a food blog.” I mean, I don’t take pretty pictures of food, and I don’t do recipes. I just… Continue reading Anatomy of a Super Salad, & a Rosh Hashanah Blog Party!!!
I was so happy to see the great response to this giveaway (and I know Chanale was also thrilled!). Thanks to everyone who participated and shared it. The winners, picked through a random number generator, are: Chana S., who said “I love listening to music when I’ working…” and Miry, who said “I love music… Continue reading Giveaway Winners of Chanale’s newest album!
I love Chanale Fellig’s music. When I heard that she had released another CD, I wanted to get it. And then I dawdled, and things came up, and we moved, and, well, I didn’t buy it until a week and a half ago. And what a shame that I waited! It’s a fantastic album. I… Continue reading Review and Giveaway of Chanale’s newest CD
I love getting cards in the mail. When I see an envelope addressed to me (and that it’s not a bill or donation request), I get really excited. In this day and age of quick results and instant gratification, there’s something touching about someone taking the time to pick out a card, write a thoughtful… Continue reading Rosh Hashanah Cards Giveaway!
