What To Do in NYC with Kids: The New York Transit Museum

March 25, 2019

I am beyond excited to start this series for a number of reasons. First and foremost we love our city and sharing our favorite things to do here, especially with Owen. I realize New York City can seem really intimidating to live in or even visit with kids, but it doesn’t have to be. Over the past three years we have truly found some gems that make this city so much more approachable with little ones that I’ve been dying to share with you all. The second and kind of silly reason is, these pieces are so fun and natural for us to shoot. They give us a reason to get out of our usual routine and soak up what we love about our home, and most importantly, what our kiddo loves about our home!

But, since I’m expecting and not drinking at the moment I wanted to create a simple cocktail that my friends and family could enjoy and an alternative for anyone else like me who isn’t drinking.

It’s a Girl + Why We Chose to Find Out the Gender!

March 14, 2019

Waiting to find out our first baby’s (Owen) gender until birth was truly one of the greatest surprises of mine and Zack’s lives. We felt, at the time, that it was something so special in a world that pushes for immediate results, information and the satisfaction of knowing all of the things all around the clock. We both felt in our guts for the majority of my pregnancy that he was in fact a boy all along even though we had nothing to compare it to. But even with that intuition it was still the best feeling to get to push him out and officially hear the word’s, “It’s a boy!”.

An Affordable, 30 Minute Trader Joe’s Dinner Hack

March 11, 2019

Zack and I always talk about the fact that I’m the weekday, healthy cook and that he’s the weekend, glutenous cook. Essentially, I’m good at whipping something up with what we have, keeping it easy and quick and usually fairly healthy. Zack will spend hours in our kitchen over the weekend perfecting a single recipe that’s usually buttery, delicious and a little on the heavier side. We both appreciate each other and have found that it’s the perfect balance in our household.

This affordable, 30 minute Trader Joe’s dinner hack is one of my go to meals. All of the ingredients (with the exception of olive oil, garlic, salt and pepper) we’re around $15 and purchased from our local Trader Joe’s.
