Happy Friday!


Happy Friday Lovelies!  I hope you all had a nice week!  Please excuse my erratic posting schedule lately but I have been enjoying my Summer and not taking my blogging too seriously.  When I have something fun to share, I do but if I don’t or I am too busy I am trying not to stress about it.  I am going to make this a quick one because I am heading up to the Catskills in a little bit for a long weekend!  Please pray that the weather holds out for me because the forecast is looking like a lot of rain.

Playing Tour-Guide In NYC – A One Day Itinerary!

2016-06-23 09.00.32-3

Normally as a New Yorker I tend to avoid the more touristy parts of the City.  I am usually rushing somewhere and certain areas are so congested I have to steer clear in order to get to my destination as quickly as possible.  (Ah hem Times Square – I am looking at you!)

Simple Tips For Road-Tripping With Kids

Ten years ago my husband and I moved with our two year-old daughter from Eastern Long Island to Staten Island (approximately two hours away). It was hard to leave my friends and family but Billy got a great job that required him to work in New York City and I knew I would soon start working there as well. Our current home was just too far away for a daily commute (especially when we had a little girl that we were eager to get home to.) It made more sense for us to live locally. In the years following our move Taylor and I have driven out to visit about once a month. With such frequent visits, it makes me so glad that we have a great car to get us there. Often people get put off purchasing a new car due to misconceptions that it will be a large upfront payment. But there are many other ways to go about getting a new car. One of these is car leasing. Anyone who feels this would suit them should contact a lease broker. Anyway, we go for long weekends, breaks from school and spend at least a week out there every Summer.
