Thank Heaven For Little Girls #Gigi #ReadBrightly- March 24th, 2015

I kicked off this past weekend by taking my mom #Nanadoll to see #Gigi on #Broadway.  #VanessaHudgens shines in her Broadway debut as #Gigi.  Her costumes are incredible!  Set in the magical world of La Belle Epoque Paris, where fashion, glamour and passion prevail, Lerner and Loewe’s celebrated musical is a romantic comedy about one young woman’s journey to find her true self… and her true love.  The musical includes glorious songs such as “Thank Heaven for Little Girls,” “I Remember It Well” and “The Night They Invented Champagne.”   This is a #DIVAMUSTBroadwayShow

Brunch is essential to having a fabulyss weekend which is why we’ve trained #BlakeyBleu to enjoy this meal and make it as much fun and as #DeLysscious as possible!

New York City pretty much has everything, but the one thing sorely missing on our concrete island is Bounce U.  My son bounces up and down when he has a birthday party at #BounceU.

Time sure has changed since we were growing up.  Today’s kids can get whatever they need at the touch of their fingertips, on their phone no less!  How did we ever survive before Google?

With #Easter right around the corner, its time to get hopping on some fun crafts.  Here’s an easy one that only requires white lunch bags and a printer.  Download these adorable FREE Bunny and Chick Easter Bags pattern courtesy of Green Lily Designs.  Print the bunny and chick on 3.5×6.5 inch white paper bags, cut around the ears and head and you’re done. You can even add a little pom pom bum for a finishing touch.

#SnowySpring #ReelMoms #Sharenting-Friday, March 20th 2015

I may wear red soles, but I will never be able to pass for Dorothy.  Instead of making a sandcastle, I am sporting snow boots and throwing snowballs.

If this is the first official day of Spring, I can’t even imagine what April Fool’s Day has in store for us.  Today is also #InternationalDayofHappiness so #BeHappy, plus its Very Hungry Caterpillar Day.  We can all relate to Eric Carle’s fun picture book of the little caterpillar who binges out and then hibernates.  The good news is he emerges as a beautiful butterfly so get ready to spread your wings.  The forecast is calling for 50′s tomorrow which will feel like a heat wave.
Happy Birthday #Mr.Roger (I love this quote)

Wondering if you should take your family to see Cinderella, Home and/or Insurgent this weekend?  Check out the latest #ReelMom segment which aired on the Today Show at 10:30am this morning.  Its always such a special treat to do these fun mom movie review segments with my #FabULyss friends Suzanne Rust and Tamara McNamara.

You may want to think twice before you post lots and lots of pics of your kids this weekend.  #Sharent is the new term when you overexposed your children on social media.  My boys are very specific on what is allowable for me to post about them.  I was part of an engaging discussion on this topic on #FoxNews #HappeningNow

#ZoomCityArena #Chores #BadBarbie #FishintheDark #LuckyLeprechaun-Tuesday, March 17th 2015

I have absolutely no plans to travel to China to take Jax to the House of Mamba, so Nike gave us the opportunity to do the second best thing.  Jax was in all of his glory when he checked out Niketown’s Zoom City Arena.  I never expected him to last over two hours in any store.  This one even carries shoes so the acorn doesn’t fall far from the tree!

I’m beyond proud of my star Olliepop who appeared on The Today Show’s segment on toys to make your #Staycation a blast.  He is so natural and literally shines in front of the camera.

I got to voice my opinions on why BlakeyBlue will not be playing with high-tech ‘talking’ Barbie on Fox New’s The Willis Report.

It was such a treat to be a lady who lunches and take in a flick with my mom.  As far as sequels, The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel did not disappoint.  Nanadoll and I found it delightful.  It was witty, thought-provoking and fun.

Thanks to #FabULyssfriends, my birthday celebrations continued on.  For 90 minutes, I laughed non-stop at Fish in the Dark, Larry David’s new comedy at The Cort Theatre.  There is no one who can make me blush this genius does.   Such a special treat to go back stage to meet #Larry xo

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!  Here’s a recipe for Lucky Leprechaun Cookie Bark which promises to make your day magically #DeLysscious!

Ingredients
  • 14 whole Thin Mints or Mint Oreos, broken up.
  • 1½ C pretzels, broken into pieces. I used the small stick pretzels
  • 1 lb. white chocolate, almond bark or melts found in the bulk food section
  • 1 C green M & M’s , mint flavored work great or just milk chocolate.
  • green and white sprinkles
Instructions
  1. Cover a large cookie sheet with wax paper
  2. Spread broken cookies, pretzels and about ¾ C of the M & M’s onto the waxed paper
  3. Place white chocolate in a container and microwave for 1½ minutes
  4. Stir and then microwave for another 30 seconds until melted and smooth
  5. White chocolate melts faster and burns easier than chocolate
  6. Drizzle the melted chocolate over the cookie mixture, spreading with spatula if needed to coat evenly
  7. Sprinkle remaining M & M’s and colored sprinkles over the chocolate while it is still wet
  8. Do not let it harden
  9. Place cookie tray into refrigerator until set and firm
  10. Remove and gently break bark

A #FabULyss Weekend Getaway @ The Quogue Club-March 9th, 2015

Yesterday was #InternationalWomensDay…

Quogue Club At Hallock House/ most #FabULyss weekend retreat in the Hamptons

the-inn-at-quogue

Looking for a #FabULyss weekend getaway?! Look no further. We found the Quogue Club At Hallock House. Understated elegance and exquisite taste are captured throughout The Quogue Club at Hallock House. The freshly renovated, nearly 200-year old 14 room boutique hotel features exceptional decor personally created by world-famous designer Alexa Hampton, perennially one of Architectural Digest’s Top 100 Designers. The decor is #FabULysslyGorgeous (my dream home.. will be decorated like this one day).

Guests are delighted by the premium amenities, exclusive beach privileges and easy access to the rest of the Hamptons. The Club is just steps from the Hamptons Jitney stop, a short bike ride from pristine beaches, 20 minutes west of Southampton and a mere 90 minutes from Manhattan.  My husband and I decided to take a much needed #PTO (Parent Time Out) this weekend and stay out East at this charming hotel. From the minute that we drove up to the hotel I knew that we were in store for a wonderful, relaxing weekend.  We stayed in one of the beautiful cottages (I honestly never wanted to leave the bed.. it was soo comfortable).  We had the most #DeLysscious dinner (far surpasses any 5 star restaurant in NYC). Our brunch was equally as yummy, probably the best eggs benedict I have ever had.

My #DeLysscious glass of white wine is calling my name #TheQuogueClub #HallockHouse #PTO#ParentsTimeOut
