When You Really Need A Good Night Sleep


As a Behavioral Coach, I often (more often than I would have thought) work with people who are not sleeping well. When someone tells me they are not getting enough sleep, I ask if they have a hard time falling asleep or a hard time staying asleep.  Many people suffer from one or the other, and some suffer from both.   So many people would feel much better, they just really need a good night sleep. The biggest reasons that we discover as to why my clients are not sleeping well are either due to being in pain (or getting stiff) or having too many things on their minds, making  a million and one thoughts preventing the sound sleep.

When an individual has too many thoughts circling his or her min...

The Good Dinosaur – Take the kids this weekend!

Your kids have probably seen the ads on TV previewing “The Good Dinosaur”, the newest Disney-Pixar movie officially in theaters Thanksgiving Day.  If your kids are anything like mine, you might get asked all through Thanksgiving dinner to take them to see the movie.  You have a choice of taking the kids to see “The Good Dinosaur” this weekend or battling the crowds in the stores to go shopping.  My choice?  THE GOOD DINOSAUR is your ONLY choice!

THE GOOD DINOSAUR asks the question: What if the asteroid that forever changed life on Earth missed the planet completely and giant dinosaurs never became extinct? Pixar Animation Studios takes you on an epic journey into the world of dinosaurs where...

Noodles & Company

One of the newest Noodles & Company locations opened only a few months ago in Farmingdale, and it is surely something you do not want to miss!

Our family was invited to Noodles & Company in celebration of their launch of the new Kids’ Meals!  We were super excited to get to try many of their dishes, and since we had never been to a Noodles & Company before, we weren’t sure what to expect.  We knew there would be another blogging family there, and when we realized it was the other Massapequa/Farmingdale mom, my friend Tina from Macaroni Kid Farmingdale/Massapequa, we were excited to be spending a nice night with her and her family while we tried Noodles!

STEW LEONARD’S Farmingdale Christmas Shoppe and Tree Lighting


Long Island, you have NO IDEA what we are getting! I’ve asked people in Massapequa and Farmingdale about their excitement over the new Stew Leonard’s Farmingdale store and most of the responses I got were that we already have one. LONG ISLAND, WAIT UNTIL STEWS OPENS!!! We only have the liquor store right now. Stew Leonard’s is more than a liquor store, it is a unique grocery shopping experience!  No, wait, it is SO MUCH MORE THAN grocery shopping!  Just look at what they are offering before the store even opens in January!

I am thrilled to announce that Stew Leonard’s is opening their Christmas Shoppe & is hosting their 1st Annual Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony!  You have got to see this...

Photo Gifts Deals


Every year we make it a point to take our annual pictures of the kids for our Christmas cards.  I also always like to create a photo gift for our family members.  The grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins love to get a special keepsake of the kids, and love to see how much they have grown and changed over the years.

I am in the process of trying to figure out what to get them this year!  I have been looking for photo gifts deals, so I thought I’d share my findings!

When I was six years old, no one had an email account.  I don’t even remember being able to read and write at that time, although my aunts always said that when I was two I knew my Dad’s work number and would call his office and ask his secretary if I could speak to Lou.  But times have certainly changed.  My six year old wanted his own email account.  I wanted to be pro-active and keep him safe, but at the same time, I don’t want to say no to him wanting to email his Dad or grandparents when he is not with them.  I was on the hunt for safe email for kids.  Hearing about KidsEmail.org, I had to check it out.

KidsEmail is safe email.  It protects kids while giving them their freedom.

‘Santa’s Little Helper’ out tomorrow, my interview with “The Miz”


I had the pleasure of interviewing WWE’s Mike “The Miz” Mizanin this morning.  He and Diva Paige are starring in the new film “Santa’s Little Helper”, arriving on DVD and Digital HD tomorrow, Tuesday, November 17th!

Last night, we made it a family movie night and previewed the film.  We all really enjoyed it! I will be posting more about the film in a few days along with a “Santa’s Little Helper” Giveaway!

Ho-ho-hold on tight for holiday hijinks in this hilarious family comedy. After losing his job, a slick-talking businessman Dax (“The Miz”) is given the chance of a lifetime—to be Santa’s second-in-command...
