Ghostly Sea Shell Garland

Sea Shell Ghosts

Sea Shell Ghosts

My family loves to collect sea shells during our summer trips to the beach. So, I try to find creative ways to use them all year round. Here are some shells “dressed up” like spooky ghosts for Halloween.

I draped these ghostly creatures along the…

Things beyond discipline…

“If it is desirable that our children be kind, responsible, pleasant and honest, then those qualities must be taught – not hoped for.” – James Dobson

Mother Holding Child's Hand

You all would agree with the fact that Parenting is not something that one can learn by reading a book or surfing on the Internet. It is much more than…

Good morning friends,

Happy Halloween to all of you!  It’s a cloudy day, here in the suburbs of NYC. I’m taking my kids trick or treating today, after school. My sister and I have a tradition, that has been going on for about 4 years now. She comes with her 2 little ones, and the cousins get to beg for candy, and have a pizza dinner, and just spend time with each…

Paying off Debt

I know when you are in debt, it can be difficult to face the numbers.  I know people who will not open their mail, who just throw their bills in a drawer where they cannot be seen.
I have felt the pressure of debt, avoiding the numbers will not make it go away, or make you feel the burden any less.  I know what it is like to lay in bed thinking about your debt, wondering if you made a payment, thinking about extra fees.  You will find if you write it out and are at…

Read This Before You Have Your Halloween Party!

Don’t ever have a Halloween party and Invite 40 3rd and 4th grade boys! Two weeks before Halloween and I decided it would be a “great” idea to combine both of my boy’s birthday parties. I thought this would be an easy breezy way to “get er done.” I bought adorable Halloween themed invitations and meticulously…

Stuffed Eggplant Canoe

Stuffed what?!

Yes you read correctly Stuffed Eggplant Canoe.

Thursday's Treat!

Last night after work I was exhausted and had a lot to do. I had emails to read, pictures to edit, company coming over and didn't want to invest a lot of time in the kitchen. I remembered I had bought two lovely Eggplants on Saturday after my visit with grandma and the Salon. I only grab them when on sale and the size is right. I don't want to waste time or money if I…

Different Types of Dress Necklines That Women Must Consider When Buying an Outfit

When women are out shopping for a dress, most of them will usually look for one that complements the waistline or legs. Whether you have broad shoulders or are apple-shaped, the best way for a woman to highlight her assets is to opt for a dress having a neckline that can complement the occasion and her body…

A Texans First Winter

{{To read the full post, please click HERE}}

The air is starting to get crisp around these parts.

Just the other day, my son and I headed in to the grocery store to do our shopping, and during the hour we were in the store, a cold front had come in,  and *BAM* it’s here to stay.

So far. I mean, C’mon, it’s Nebraska.

That whole “If you don’t like the weather,…

Preparing for Labor and Delivery: Newborn Babies Make the Pain Totally Worth It

There’s this big part of getting ready for labor and delivery that a lot of us forget – or just don’t know how – to do. I’m completely guilty of it. When I was pregnant with Ricky, I got prepared in the normal ways that you think of getting ready for the hospital: touring the facility, registering in advance, packing my hospital bag. But that didn’t really eliminate the anxiety that kept creeping in as we got closer and closer to my delivery date.

Fear of Delivery

I was…

5 Fun Ways To Help Your Baby Talk

Babies cry a lot and we often need to guess why. Do they want more milk? Do they need a diaper change? Is it colic? Are they too tired? Are they feeling sick? If only they could tell us! Well of course, they won't start talking until they're about 8-10 months old, and even then, their words still won't be as clear as we want them to be.

In our country, many parents "baby talk" their kids thinking they are not capable of…

The issues we have with money

I love money

I don’t know about you, but I really like money. I like generating it. I like seeing it in my bank account in green, not red.I like going to the mall and being able to enter a store and buy me a shirt without feeling guilty for wasting the family budget on a personal whim. I like buying new shoes for the kids.…

Seminars and Classes

This post is to encourage you to avail yourself to seminars, conferences and classes.  I know it costs money to attend and it takes planning for your family and sometimes rearranging schedules.  We need to recognize the need for concentrated growth in our lives.  Just like vacation time is important to relax and refocus our lives at times.  Times of investing in the Word of God, and classes/seminars that better our lives are necessary.  It is nice to go to a one day class, but there is a…

Halloween Costume Deals


This is one of my daughter’s favorite time of the year.  Halloween involves her two favorite things in life, dress up and candy!  It is one time during the year where I will let her dress up outside of the house and get as much candy as she can carry.  With all the different outfits out there, trying to find your child’s “ideal costume” can be expensive for a one night…

Jazz Up Your Fall: Farro Chickpea Salad

My husband broke my #1 cardinal rule of grocery shopping: thou shall not enter the store without a list.

Since my back surgery,  I cannot lift, so lucky (or unlucky depending on how you choose to look at it) for me, my husband is in charge of buying food.  He means well, and he has been amazingly supportive of his temporary role as keeper of the house, but I have a system down that I am…

Ready, get set, GO! It’s that time again. What are you waiting for? Are you one of those last minute shoppers, motivated by the adrenaline rush of bouncing from store to store to pull together something that makes sense for a haunted night of ghost and…

Potty Training: Finding Middle Ground Between “Ready” and “Pulling Your Hair Out”

There is no roadmap

There is so much that people don’t tell you before you have kids. For the most part, I’ve been ok with this collective omission, with one major exception: potty training.

No one ever mentioned, even hinted at the horrors that awaited me with potty training.  I had two difficult birth experiences, a hard time with breast feeding my first, and 20 plus weeks of hormone injections with my second and nothing, nothing comes close to the misery…

How I Screwed Up Halloween

I have screwed up royally with Halloween in our home. 

As a rabbi I am very clear that Halloween is a pagan holiday that was adopted by the Christians. As Jews we are not supposed to celebrate…
