HIPSTER CHILDREN

By | May 5th, 2015|BLOG|

Sometimes I like to dress Finn in a pair of high-tops, an early eighties rock band t-shirt and/or a pair of ray-bans. I know this will label him a hipster child, and for some people it will label him 'bratty'. Finn's wardrobe was pretty much rad like this 24-7 until some ladies at his daycare [...]

DIY BluePrint CLEANSE

By | May 2nd, 2015|BLOG, GAZETTE|

So I did a DIY BluePrint Cleanse. When it comes to rapid weight loss programs, I’ll try anything once. I’ve done the cabbage soup diet, the South Beach Diet, the Master Cleanse; and the very controversial Atkins diet (back in the day when all you could eat was lard). I've had the BluePrint Cleanse in [...]

BOYS’ COLORS

By | April 29th, 2015|BLOG, GAZETTE|

Last night I had a middle of the night, Oprah Aha! moment about decorating the boys' bedrooms. Once I thought of it, I couldn't believe I hadn't thought it all along. The revelation? They need color. I've been thinking monotone for the rest of the house and the boys rooms just kind of came along [...]

BLUE APRON, HELLO FRESH, PLATED… IN THAT ORDER

By | March 9th, 2015|BLOG, GAZETTE|

Blue Apron Tilapia Meunière with Moroccan-Spiced Lentils & Rainbow Chard Life with toddlers is pretty crazy at the best of times. My wing-man is down with a back injury, so things have been especially hectic around here. I decided to try a meal delivery service to take some of the pressure off. No shopping for [...]

WEAVING WITH MARYANNE MOODIE

By | October 23rd, 2014|BLOG|

My blog post San Francisco Guide for Guilty Mamas tried to justify my decision to abandon my husband and children for 48 hours of debauchery with a bunch of girls from Cali. That post kind of highlighted the negatives. It’s true, I did develop a plugged milk duct (as well as a hole in my [...]

SAN FRANCISCO GUIDE FOR GUILTY MAMAS

By | October 20th, 2014|BLOG|

When one of my Cali girlfriends sent out an invite to a girls weekend in San Fransisco, I was pumped. My life for the last three months had been diapers, spit up and sore nipples. For nine months before that I was pregnant. So it had been a year between martinis and I was ready [...]

CEMETERIES, ANTIQUING + FRIED GREEN TOMATOES

By | April 29th, 2014|BLOG|

We are back from our trip to South Carolina and Savannah. This post is about what to do in Savannah. Spanish moss and southern charm - I’m into it in a way I’d never thought I’d be. We visited Bonaventure and Wormsloe, shopped boutiques and antiques and made a point of eating as much southern [...]

WINTER ON CAPE COD

By | January 16th, 2014|BLOG|

We are on Cape Cod in the middle of an actual, real-life winter. No 70 degree winters here, because San Diego is long gone. We are living in Robbie's dad's holiday house in Orleans, Mass. We had our wedding reception here in 2010 and it's just as beautiful covered in snow as I remember it [...]

A FAREWELL TO SAN DIEGO

By | November 2nd, 2013|BLOG|

It’s November and it’s still t-shirt weather in San Diego. We went to the beach today and soaked in the last rays of warm weather. It felt like a kind of farewell to San Diego. We're really starting to feel like we're leaving now. San Diego has been home to Robbie for a dozen years [...]
