Today’s Agenda: Liar liar edition

So yesterday I wrote that I was going to start a new walking workout program. Only problem is, I never got around to it. So today I told myself that I wasn’t going to start writing until I could write that I had already started the program. I even tweeted that I was headed to […]

Have a great burger recipe? Here are two great contests!

The following post was commissioned by the National Pork Board & Johnsonville. Wal-Mart has two new pork products in its freezer section that have my husband salivating: Johnsonville Bratwurst Patties and Italian Sausage Patties. To celebrate these new products, The National Pork Board and Johnsonville are sponsoring the “No Ordinary Burger Recipe Contest.” The idea […]

The Faces of Ground Zero exhibit

If you get a chance before September 12th, stop by the Time Warner Center in Columbus Circle to see this exhibit. Many of the pictures are lifesize, and the accompanying stories are moving. Originally posted on Selfish Mom, from Amy’s cell phone (so please excuse any weird formatting). All opinions expressed on this website come […]

My first laser hair removal treatment

So I’ve been toying around with the idea of getting laser hair removal for years. I’m a hairy chick, and I take care of it by an annoying and time consuming combination of waxing and shaving. Or I just wear jeans when it’s 95 degrees. Both methods leave something to be desired. The only thing […]

Tough decision? Bounce it off of Bounce!

The following post was commissioned by Bounce. Bounce – the very same company that keeps my socks from sticking to my pants – has a very cool campaign on Facebook right now, called Bounce It Off Millions. You just go to the Bounce Facebook page and click on the Bounce It Off Millions tab on […]

Today’s Agenda: hitting the ground walking edition

I was supposed to start my new exercise program yesterday, or so I told myself. I even contemplated getting on the treadmill at 1:30am before bed. But no excuses today, I’m doing day one of an eight-week walking program. I get one day off a week on the program, I guess I used this week’s […]

Toss and Chop review: chopped salads at home

Last month I went out for lunch with my fellow Blogging Angels and got a delicious salad. It was one of those great places where you can add whatever you want and then they toss it in a big bowl with dressing and charge you an insane amount of money. But I don’t care, those […]

Today’s Agenda: adopt-a-turtle edition

So I woke up this morning to find that one of my turtles had destroyed the little thermometer that used to hang out in the bottom of their tank. I should’ve taken it out before. I’ve seen them snap at it, but it would just bounce out of their mouths. I guess one of them […]

Hurricane Irene, with the benefit of hindsight

I spent Saturday getting ready for Hurricane Irene’s impending arrival in NYC. I thought I was well-stocked, but then woke up to realize I was out of turtle food. Not wanting the turtles to escape their tank and try to eat the cat, I decided to go out before the weather got too bad. It […]

Bobby Flay’s egg salad, AKA The Best Egg Salad EVER!

I like to think my normal egg salad recipe is really good. Mayonnaise, onion, dill, mustard, salt, and pepper are all mixed with hard boiled egg for creamy eggy goodness. And it is. But Bobby Flay’s egg salad recipe is another thing altogether: spicy and tangy with some crunch, it’s a hearty, tasty egg salad […]
