Common examples of condiments include ketchup, mustard, mayonnaise, salad dressing, soy sauce, barbecue sauce and relish. Often added to a food to introduce new flavors or enhance… Continue

I don't know about you guys, but I am a total organization freak! I love to have a place for everything...even though everything may not always be in its place. On a recent date my hubby had to literally pull me away from the window of the container store because I was in heaven! Now, with a second baby on the way my love and need for organization has multiplied ten-fold, and it's not just my little man's room that's getting a complete overhaul, my daughter's room is getting an entire… Continue

Let’s go tropical with Lychee Lime Drink:
I am a big fan of Lychee. As a kid, I used to wait for summertime so that I can enjoy this tropical fruit. That time I didn’t know the health benefits of Lychee.. After some reading, I came to know that Lychee fruit is packed with lots of health benefits. It contains vitamins and minerals that are essential for healthy living.
Since, I like it a lot so I thought of trying out some drink with it. Here is my… Continue

It’s summer; it’s hot outside. Summer heat always calls for some refreshing drinks. We usually have get together, potlucks, gathering during summer.

Let’s make some refreshing non-alcoholic summer party drinks that you can enjoy at any time of the day. They are not only perfect for kids (as they do not have any alcohol… Continue

Summertime is my favorite time!
Yes it's hot, it can be sticky but let's look at the bright side...
It takes you half the time to get dressed, daylight is much longer and as a mommy or daddy you get a break from homework duties I say thank heavens for that!!!
On my walk around the park the other afternoon I came across a struggling mom.
Struggling, because she had two kids, five bags and a carriage.
Wow, I had to stop and really… Continue

This week Teagan turned 4 months. I can't believe how quickly she is growing and changing and how much I can love one little person. I knew our lives as new parents would change, but you never really know how it will be until the little one arrives. Here are a few things I've learned along the way. Continue
1. My house will never be perfectly clean ever again.
Anyone who knows me knows that before Teagan I was very OCD about the cleanliness of my home.…

Yesterday I attended the Fauquier County Fair with my husband, two kids (2 and 4) and my parents. Having just moved back to the area after 20 years, we enjoyed the country atmosphere, field parking, and smell of funnel cakes in the air.
For my readers who are not familiar with Fauquier County, it is pronounced Faw-Kyeer and is NOT a curse word as long… Continue

I've been thinking that I wanted to write a post to share more about who we are, for those who don't know us, or at least...don't know us very well. But I wasn't sure where to start until yesterday, after a conversation with a dear friend. We were talking about how it's easy to look at how someone chooses to do something and feel like in order to measure up, we need to be doing the same. It's so hard not to compare ourselves to others sometimes, isn't it? Truthfully, I really struggle… Continue

This is what’s important. You need to skip the vegetables sometimes, and just have waffles with loads and loads of whipped cream for dinner. Read extra stories before bed, and use your silly voice. Sing extra songs. Tickle often. Tell your daughter that she is beautiful always, no matter what. Play make believe, get on your hands and knees and be a fire-breathing dragon. Make messes, make so many messes. Messy rooms are places where kids were… Continue

We love Salem, MA. It is one of the places, along with New York City, NY and Mystic CT, that we visit any time we have the chance. Salem has been our Halloween/October destination for many, many years. We also try to visit during the year when it is not as crowded. So we are in Salem a couple- three… Continue

A few weeks ago I posted photos on my instagram page showing how beautifully my mother in law's fruits plants have grown. She has a papaya tree, avocado tree, banana tree, mango tree and more grown. There are a few others in their beginning stages. It only took about 5 years for some of her plants to start bearing fruit and I was thinking I should've started growing plants as soon as we bought our house. By now I would have… Continue
