Halloween 2014 By The Numbers

This was the first year since having kids that I wasn’t out trick-or-treating with them. Fiona’s best friend’s mom was nice enough to take her, and Jake went with his friends. I actually got to sit on our stoop and hand out candy, something I’ve never gotten to do before! I decorated and everything! There […]

So Which Halloween Treats Do You Have To Avoid With Invisalign?

Yesterday was Halloween. Halloween for me has always been about the candy. OK, most holidays for me are about the candy. I can’t imagine Thanksgiving without mashed potatoes and stuffing. Christmas without cookies. Easter without a chocolate Easter bunny. July 4th without…a whole lotta food, eaten in somebody’s backyard. And for me, Halloween is about […]

Here’s What That Obnoxious Woman Could Do To Actually Help Childhood Obesity

If you’ve been online at all today you know that there is a woman in North Dakota who’s planning on handing out letters tomorrow to kids whom she deems too fat for candy. Let me clarify: she’s not handing out letters to all kids, explaining why she thinks Halloween candy is bad. Oh no, if […]

Today’s Agenda: not falling off treadmill edition

So today is the second day of my walking program. The first day involved thirty minutes on the treadmill and some leg toning exercises with exercise bands. Between warming up and cooling down and stretching and all that it took about an hour and a half. So I should be looking forward to today, which […]

So to say my neighborhood gets into the Halloween spirit would be a bit of an understatement. It goes crazy. There are several streets that get closed down. There are live shows. There are insane numbers of people. It’s quite impressive. We actually live on the outskirts of the neighborhood now, where there aren’t as […]

Today’s Agenda: More Slim-Fast edition

So I’m pumped. I said last week that this week would be the true test of my Slim-Fast experiment, since I always lose a lot of water the first week on any diet. And I’m happy to say that I weighed in this morning, and have lost a little over two pounds this week! I’m […]

Today’s Agenda: costume edition

I’m really terrible about buying Halloween costumes on time. But I think last night’s excursion to Party City with the kids might have cured me of my procrastination once and for all. The kids and I had to wait outside – in the rain – just to get in to the store. Then we had […]

Randomosity – Halloween, Cows, Kinect, & Disney!

Halloween Halloween in our neighborhood is HUGE.   Every candy stop is super crowded… Bands play… Scary movie scenes are recreated in open garages… People go all out with decorations… And it gets so crowded that the police shut down a couple of streets, including the one where these crazy people put on a huge […]

My kids on “The Morning Show” – soooooo cute!

Our day started Thursday morning very early, since a car was picking us up at 6am to get us to The Morning Show with Mike and Juliet by 6:45.  (If you’d like to see the kids’ segment, go here.)  The kids got up much easier than I thought they would.  Pasta Boy Cloud Boy pretty […]
