Congratulations Mr. Barack Obama...

I continue to be moved by the historical events that took place yesterday.



America’s 1st African American President. I was elated when he won and like so many Americans I cried for his victory.



I continue to think about the possibilities for America and for it’s youth.



As a child I can recall so many times when I experienced prejudice as a Spanish/Puerto Rican American.



I know what it is like to be prejudged based on nationality rather than my… Continue

7 Years

Yesterday was my 7 year wedding anniversary. It's amazing because for 7 straight years the weather has been the same as my wedding day....absolutely gorgeous. So if you want to plan a party, plan it for Sept. 7th. LOL!







It's also amazing how time goes by and quickly. The past 7 years have not always been marital bliss. Truthfully, there have been "ups and downs" as there have been for the many marriages I know. I have had some really fun times and those times were… Continue

MOMpreneur Perks - Night Out!

When Beth Feldman of http://www.rolemommy.com/ sent me an evite for a "GIRLS NIGHT IN", I quickly clicked on "view invite" and read the details. This is what part of the invite said:





At our debut event, it'll be all about relaxation with complimentary massages, manicures, drinks and appetizers.





As soon as I saw the words "complimentary massages" I was in. I didn't care who I had to track down to babysit the kids! I was a shoe in! I was not going to miss my… Continue

Solve Your Gift Giving Headaches With Wish Lists And Gift Organizers

Writen by Titus Hoskins



Let's face it, not everyone likes buying gifts. Many people dread the idea of going out and finding appropriate gifts for the people on their list. For many it is a daunting task, no matter what the occasion… Continue

Husbands away and I can't play....

Soooooooooooooo DH is in Scottsdale, Arizona on business and I am Jealous! Yup...I am jealous. He is in a nice hotel room, probably had some room service, had dinner with adults, and will eventually play a little golf. Isn't it cool how men play golf while doing business(o.k. some women too).



When I was working, we NEVER got to play a sport while conducting business. Now when I conduct business, it's at the Park, a play date or a toddler class.





I mean after all, I am… Continue

One Email

Yesterday was great! I received a nice email from a very happy member/customer.







She's is probably http://www.mykidsregistry.com/ biggest fan. Her daughter's birthday is coming up and she used used our einvite function to invite party guests, she created a wish list and ordered her party supplies through http://www.birthdayinabox.com/. She saved a tree and saved gas & time by ordering party supplies. Sharing her daughters wishes through a wish list was just an added… Continue

Well, it happened. Yesterday was the big day.

I turned 40.

WHOO HOO!



I am so relieved it's over. WHEW! I love everyone's birthday but my own.



I woke up today completely exhausted. Last night was an insomniac night. Couldn't fall asleep until 4:00 am. Was it because I was freaking out that I was 40! NAH...just one of those nights.



Please - I know - I am dying today. Thankfully Nana came to the rescue and took B for the day and princess is fast… Continue

BLOGGERS BLOCK and...

I often have BLOGGERS BLOCK and can't seem to think of something to write about.







I sometimes think "GET IT GOING GIRL...I should walk around with a notebook". Sometimes I have these great ideas for my business and my blog and say "Tonight I will get to it, you'll do it when the kids go to sleep".







Well, by the time they are in bed, it's a little too late. I get caught up answering my email, straightening up, over hearing bits of a fun reality… Continue

a.k.a "Writer"

Wednesday night I went to the Premiere of the Closer(avail on TNT) in Manhattan at the bar Ultra. I was so close to not going for a few reasons. At the last minute I was able to get a babysitter and meet my DH in Manhattan.







FYI - I love living so close to the city that I can just JET in if I choose to. Ideally, I think you all know by now I am a Manhattanite deep in my heart and would L-O-V-E to live in some gorgeous townhouse on the Upper West side, Greenwich Village, or… Continue

It's 12:00 a.m. DO I KNOW WHERE MY BED IS???

No...I obviously don't. I think my bed is in a tiny room upstairs. It was last seen at 7:00 a.m. this morning, wearing a king size comforter, sage green, and my beloved remote controls lay on top and oh yes..the clean laundry from yesterday still in need of a home all lay on top of the bed!



BTW, have I discussed with you my poor relationship with laundry? We don't get along. We've had this on going battle for a few years. I think it heightened when the kids arrived. I've actually… Continue

Roll of the Dice

Follow up from my camping blogs..www.mykidsregistry.blogspot.com



So the camp thing...I think I will take him to the sport zone today. If camp doesn't approve of the idea when I call them, then we are off to the beach.



O.K. on a mompreneur level, I have been so consumed with B's camp life and new medical information that I have been neglectful of my business.



I am excited about some of the changes I just made to the website but realize it is a roll of the dice… Continue
