How Junior's Made Me Fall in Love with Cheesecake

This is a Sponsored Post for Juniors.  However, all opinions are my own. Juniors just celebrated 67 years in business. Founded by Harry Rosen in 1950, Junior's landmark restaurant, located in Brooklyn, is known as the home of New York's best cheesecake. It was a pleasure meeting Kevin Rosen, the third generation owner running the business with his brother. As soon as we sat down, we were served pickles, which is nice because it keeps your mouth and your hands busy while not filling you up. I started with the Pastrami smoked salmon, which is exclusive to the Boca Raton menu. At first, I thought it was a combination of Pastrami and smoked salmon (that would have been weird), but it is smoked salmon with Pastrami spices (no meat). Kevin Rosen, the owner, highly recommended it and I'm so glad …

Henry's Classic American Cuisine Does Thanksgiving Dinner To Go

Henry's Classic American Cuisine Does Thanksgiving Dinner To Go

This is a Sponsored Post for Henry’s.  However;  all opinions are my own. Henry's, located in West Delray, was completely packed when I walked in one hour before closing on Thursday.   There was no sign of slowing down. We were greeted by their general manager, Cindy, who made me feel like I was family right away.  The crowd was upscale, and I could tell that most of the people were regulars. I had always been intrigued by this restaurant because of the decor.  It's very sophisticated, but modern and inviting at the same time.  They serve classic, yet elevated American cuisine where you can find something for everyone which makes a great place for the whole family. Even at eight o'clock at night, kids …

How I Keep on Dancing Through Life

This post was sponsored by Astellas as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central and all opinions expressed in my post are my own. Life. What a roller coaster it has been! Fifty is creeping up on me and I'm thinking about how it got here so fast!  But I keep on dancing! I plan on packing in as much as I can the last sixty years of my life because I don't let anything slip away. That's right. I plan on another fun filled sixty years. I have two boys that keep me going under the age of six. They keep me dancing, that's for sure! When I was about 10 years old I wrote a little book. I found it years later when going through old school papers. It was …

Fit Foodz Cafe Boca Raton

This is a Sponsored Post for Fit Foodz Cafe.  However; all opinions are my own. I try to live a healthy lifestyle.  I exercise and try to eat as clean as possible.  I also try to demonstrate healthy eating habits to my kids and I can say that they are pretty health conscious now.  Neither one of them eat red meat, which was not my choice, but theirs. When I was pregnant with my first son six years ago I had a food aversion to red meat and have not been able to eat it since.  I am not vegan or vegetarian.  I just listened to my body.  I love healthy options. I always feel better eating gluten free, however, I do not have any food …

5 Organic Hacks for Cold and Flu Season

This is a sponsored post for Genexa, however; all opinions are my own. It's that time of year again; the flu and cold season is here, and I am having a flashback of last December.  I was out of state for the holidays and got the flu and bronchitis.  Oh, I was miserable.  Then my father got it, and we were all sick.  I went to the doctor and they gave me antibiotics and a whole list of medications, some which made me feel worse.  It was bad. As I laid on the couch, I remember thinking, "I will never feel like this again..."  Since then, I have looked for gentler, more natural and organic medicines to help alleviate symptoms for myself and my family before …

I Brush My Kids' Hair With a Fork

I Brush My Kids' Hair With a Fork

I brushed my kids' hair with a fork.  Yup, you heard right.  I keep forks in my car.  Along with headbands, LEGOS, pens, plastic bags, napkins, coupons, tampons, lip gloss, paper clips, scissors, etc.  I live in my car. But I now keep a hairbrush in the car.  Mornings get crazy with getting the kids dressed, fed and out the door.  I can't deal with the fight over brushing their hair, so we do it in the car. There are days when things go really smoothly.  But most of the time, there is something. The other day I started having hot flashes and I suddenly realized that it's about time I hit menopause.  Somebody posted a 20-year reunion picture of us ten years ago. Why was I …

Step Forward and Try Something New

This is a Sponsored Post for Famous Footwear and The Shelf.  However, all opinions are my own. The seasons have changed, the Holidays are coming, and I sense a shift with everything around me.  I love this time of year.  It's the beginning of a new school year for my kids, and I usually do a lot of self-reflecting after a hectic summer.  It's time to change up my routine! During the summer, we go on a lot of road trips.  The kids love the theme parks like Legoland and I get my exercise running around with them. But the best thing about staying at the hotel is that I also get to lounge around a little while they play!  It's a win win situation! Because it so busy …

Why We Stayed at LEGOLAND® Water Park for the Whole Day

Why We Stayed at LEGOLAND® Water Park for the Whole Day

  This is a Sponsored Post for LEGOLAND® Parks.  However; all opinions are my own. We recently went back to Legoland for my son's 6th Birthday.  We stayed at the Legoland Hotel which is always so much fun.  This time he brought his best friend, Aaron.  It was his first road trip with a friend.  Usually, we go as a family with his brother, so this was extra special.  He felt really grown up. Right away they went straight to the treasure hunt in the room where they found the first of many future LEGO sets to build. The boys had so much fun in the room getting rowdy in the bunk bed!  We didn't get much sleep, between the giggling and excitement for the next day. Then we hit …

How to Get Through Trick or Treating Without a Meltdown

This is a Sponsored Post for Java Factory; however, all opinions are my own.  Also, there may be affiliate links in this post which means if you click on them, I will receive a commission. I love Halloween with all its festivities and all, but I don't look forward to Trick or Treating with the kids.  Gone are the days when they wore their cute little costumes and we hit about 5-10 houses.  They came home ecstatic with the candy but tired and ready to go to bed.  It was easy when they were younger, for sure. Now, it's all about the candy.  And more candy.  And then the fight over how much candy they can eat before going to bed.  Then the fight continues for the …

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

This is a sponsored post in partnership with Breast Cancer and the Environment Research Program. October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and this year I was overdue for my Mammogram.  Shame on me.  I get one every year, especially since I am forty-six-years-old and there is breast cancer in my family.  My Aunt had breast cancer on my father's side and a my mother's aunt died from breast cancer. My mother also had something removed from her breast.  Although, I have been diligent about getting exams, this year I fell behind.  Since having kids it's been so hard to schedule anything for my self care. So, last month I was reminded how important it is when I ran into an old acquaintance with her kid, who played …
