This week we spent the early evening at Brooklyn Bowl, which, to me, is really just a club that happens to also have bowling lanes. It was a launch party event for Yo Gabba Gabba’s live show. My big girl has watched the show. My baby, who won’t turn two until the end of June, […]

Quick aside on this beautiful Sunday afternoon. Yesterday I went to Trader Joe’s for salad fixings. I stopped in front of really pretty red Roma tomatoes. Three of them sitting under plastic.

Big Girl got her American Girl Bitty Baby when she was about three. I was in the city for a girls’ weekend with three of my good friends. We went to American Girl to look around. I ended up walking out with a set of Bitty Twins. I took one, while my friend, who has […]

Over the past 24 hours we’ve had three instances of customer service via Twitter and all I can say is WOW. First, a little background: We own a Kenmore stainless steel refrigerator. It’s about eight years old, but it’s in nice condition. About a year ago it started running all the time. We have an […]
