Weekend 7.24

Watching the Summer Olympics? Amid the controversies, we're a bit unsure. Meanwhile, Saks is having a sale, we're eyeing affordable rain gear & more summer fun.
Are you guys watching the Olympics this weekend? I’m feeling…some kind of way about the whole thing.  Normally, I’m a big (huge) Olympics fan. I grew up competing in all kinds of sports, my Dad was a professional hockey player in his pre-kid years, and so Watching The Olympics was a big deal. A whole family affair.   In fact, one of...

Weekend 7.17

Scotti's recovering from brain surgery -- so we're into prayer & distractions -- cool jeans, Saks OFF sales, the NSale + a few more funsies.
It’s been a week, Gang. Scotti -- my sister -- went into surgery on Wednesday (for her acoustic neuroma), and the first couple of days after were pretty tough. Pain levels were high (as one might imagine after brain surgery), but they’ve managed to find a pain management schedule that (mostly) works. Scotti’s up and moving around (her balance is actually...

Weekend 7.10

We're chatting about silky dresses at Saks, our favs bags (think TUMI, Clare V), post-pandemic etiquette & kiddos going to summer camp. Join us.
For those of you who reached out asking about Raines’ Outward Bound experience…he had an absolutely epic adventure. And if you haven’t yet heard of Outward Bound, it’s a company that specializes in “wilderness expeditionary courses” and has been around since…the '70s, I think. I first learned of Outward Bound because my Dad was totally enamored with the whole idea...
We're reading "If You Give A Mom A Cookie," checking out cute tops, waxing poetic on good beauty products & wishing all a Happy 4th! Join us.
Happy 4th of July Weekend! I hope most of you are out enjoying some sunshine and BBQ, so I’ll keep this one short. As I type this, we’re en route to Vermont, but I’ll be back next week for the all of the NSale craziness. Since I have nothing helpful or interesting to say -- truth be told, it’s been a...

Weekend 6.26

But in all seriousness, I love the idea of camping. I love the thought of sleeping in a remote, Pinterest-looking wilderness, with a sky full of stars.
We dropped Raines off last weekend for an Outward Bound 8-day expedition that includes hiking, rock climbing and camping every night in the wilds. And by "the wilds" I obviously mean bugs, bears, snakes, falling off cliffs, potential loss of limb, serial killers... Yeah, those first few nights were really rough. For me. Not yet sure how Raines fared, but...
“Happy Juneteenth Day” is -- according to many sources -- the appropriate phrase (although others disagree). As I’ve been falling out of love with July 4th these last few years...
Happy Juneteenth Day!   Truth be told, I literally just Googled “is it OK to say happy Juneteenth” and found that “Happy Juneteenth Day” is -- according to many sources -- the appropriate phrase (although others disagree). As I’ve been falling out of love with July 4th these last few years -- a day dedicated to celebrating the founding of a...
Have I wished sometimes that I could go to a Mom’s Night Out & have a glass of wine? Sure. But who am I kidding? It’ll never be just 1 glass of wine.
On June 8th, 2014, I woke up, hungover, in a Caribbean resort, wincing with hazy memories of trying to hit my husband while he held our 18-month-old daughter on what was supposed to be a nice family vacation with my in-laws. “You couldn’t have waited until the last night to ruin the trip?” I grimly thought to myself (my...
If you've been reading here for any length of time, you may have gleaned that my husband, Chris, is what one might call a discerning consumer. To be fair, he'd never outright say that a gift sucked -- he's far too gracious and polite -- but he's genuinely the hardest person to shop for in our family. In part...

Weekend 6.12

We're officially on summer vacation. The last day of school was Friday, and it felt a bit...anticlimactic. Both boys have been on a hybrid schedule, so only half of their class was even there on the last day. Everybody is just done. Raines is going into 8th grade next year, which means high school is just around the corner. That...
We've got 2 routes for finding useful father's day gifts dad will love: something fun. Think: gadgets, patio accessories or toys that make him light up like a kid. The 2nd = an everyday upgrade.
The Father's Day countdown has officially begun. Since it's just a few weeks away, we figured it would be helpful to kickstart your brainstorming with some gift ideas that have worked for the TME team in the past. Buying gifts for men can be a challenge, so here are a few favs that have been wins for us. 14 Useful...
