Adventure Of Meno Review!

2010-01-26T20:03:27.480-05:00

Thanks to The Classy Closet I was introduced to a fun collection of books called "Adventure of Meno" written by Tony and Angela Diterlizzi. This 6 book series introduces us to Meno, a throw back to the 50's space elf who finds himself an adventure with every story. The wording in the books are unique and silly, making reading time with kids fun. Follow Meno as he explores Earth and finds exciting adventures!"Award-winning author and illustrator, Tony DiTerlizzi, has been creating books with Simon & Schuster for over a decade. From his fanciful picture books like, Jimmy Zangwow’s Out-of-this-World Moon Pie Adventure, G is for One Gzonk! andThe Spider & The Fly (2003 Caldecott Honor), to young chapter books like the New York Times best-seller, Kenny and The Dragon, Tony always imbues his stories with a rich imagination. His middle-grade series, The Spiderwick Chronicles (co-created with Holly Black), has sold millions of copies and has been adapted into a feature film. Tony grew up in South Florida, and lives in Amherst, Massachusetts with his wife, Angela, and their daughter. Visit Tony at www.diterlizzi.com."I first want to start of my saying how much my kids enjoyed reading Adventure Of Meno books. Especially my 5 year old son who is starting to read. The words are simple yet silly and unique, which always make my kiddies chuckle! The illustration is colorful and quirky....kind of reminds me of Dennis the Menace meets The Jetsons :) We got to review 2 of the 6 book collection. Book One: Big Fun and Book Two: Wet Friend. I love that at the end there is a Pronounce Menu that helps to decipher what Meno and his friends are talking about! There is also a song to sing with your kids at the end. I give Adventure Of Meno two thumbs up! I can't wait to buy the other books for my kids. Make sure to head on over to Planet Meno and discover more. The website introduces you to Meno and all his friends, take a sneak peak at one of the books and there is even downloadable print outs for your kids! And check out this video the writers did. Make sure you keep an eye out for the two latest books UH-OH SICK and YUMMY TRIP due out April 6, 2010 :) Check out The Classy Closets Mega Review on Adventure of Meno!Win It!

NYC & The Martha Show Highlights

2010-01-26T20:04:20.476-05:00

My mom and I took the train into NYC for a girls getaway! We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express on 26th St. The hotel was recently redone and was super chic! The beds were so comfy, pillows like a cloud and a staff that was very accommodating. I actually forgot to pack my tooth brush and the front desk provided me with a complimentary one. I was impressed! Plus the hotel was about a block away from the Martha Stewart Show (the main reason we made our way into the city) so that was an added bonus!We got all dressed up and headed to The 21 Club on 52nd street. We sat in the Bar Room which has walls and ceiling adorned with antique toys and sports memorabilia. There were about 5 gentleman waiting on us and it seemed they each had a job. Here was what we had for dinner....everything was shared :)Mixed Greenhouse Greens, herbed goat cheese, roasted marinated beets, fig-balsamic vinaigrettePanko-Crusted Crab Cake, roasted sweet corn purée, chipotle sauce, pickled fennel, violet tatsoiGrilled Dry Aged Sirloin,roasted fingerling potatoes, baby vegetables, hen-of-the-woods mushrooms, bordelaise sauce Pommes Soufflées Vanilla Bean Crème Brûléewith espresso biscottiGrand Marnier Soufflé, crème chantilly, fresh berriesThe next day we woke up at 6:00 am got ready, ate breakfast at the restaurant next door to the hotel then walked down the street to stand in line for the Martha Stewart Show. We got there pretty early and when we got our seating tickets were #15 and #16 in line. It was nice to finally meet some of the bloggers whom I had only known from twitter and surfing blogs. Everyone was super sweet! We were finally seated in the studio and awaited the start of the show! We had a blast, Martha was amazing in person and it was really neat being a part of the taping. My husband tapped the show for us and we were hoping to be seen a couple of times since we were right in the front row. No go! I think there were a couple side profile shots....we were sitting on the wrong side. In front of us was the staff and cameras. Oh well, it was an experience and we had a blast! Plus we walked away with a cookbook from one of the guests. Now I was hoping for a laptop or ipod, but the cookbook will do :) allowFullScreen='true' webkitallowfullscreen='true' mozallowfullscreen='true' width='320' height='266' src='https://www.blogger.com/video.g?token=AD6v5dxsiFVI7wnIfo8BXqv3zPTJQCBPYPVNg9IkMB-_2oxvA9-PGNKa4LgmvkQNhmn6iv2VuJU00Nu40yVXd7wC' class='b-hbp-video b-uploaded' FRAMEBORDER='0' />The rest of the time was spent navigating through the city, shopping, trying different restaurants and eateries. We did walk all the way down to Chelsea Market, a indoor market place filled with divine shops. My mom got a lobster roll that was so fresh....and we even got 5 pieces of chocolate for $9! That was a rip off but still yummy. I know my Mom wanted to do more sight seeing but I get home sick so fast and could not wait to get home to my hubby and kids. Thanks Mom for the memorable trip!

I'm Still Here....Barely!

2010-01-05T22:13:22.171-05:00

So these past couple weeks have been so hectic and crazy! Besides all the holiday mumbo jumbo, I have been busy with work, the kids and life in general. To top it all off I was so sick the week of Christmas...it was probably the sickest I have ever been. So slowly but surely I am picking up the pieces and attempting to return to normal. I also started up a jewelry business and have been devoting a lot of my extra time to that. So please hang in there....I have some great review/giveaways coming up. Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday and Happy New Year!





2 Feet of Snow!!!

2009-12-20T15:35:30.020-05:00

We got hit hard by the blizzard here in New Jersey! Our cars were buried, the patio set is barely visible.....it's going to be a white Christmas!!! The kids had fantastic time playing in the snow, and it was hilarious watching them try to walk in it. It came up to my son's hips and my daughters shoulders! After about 2 hours of playing outside, everyone came in for chicken noodle soup and yummy hot chocolate :)

Did you get snow this weekend too? What are some of the things you make or do on a snow day?

Andrea, owner of Anna Bella Jewels, sent me this stunning Green Amethyst Necklace and Cultured Fresh Water Pearls. It's absolutely breath taking in person, the pictures definitely do not do it justice. It's a sterling silver extension necklace with a lobster clasp, cultured fresh water pearls and a large 16.5 mm x 11 mm green amethyst drop. It's definitely a show stopper and conversation piece. I love how delicate it looks, but it's truly sturdy and made well. Because it's an extension necklace, the piece can be made to be shorter or longer depending on what top you are wearing it with. The colors are amazing together, the white pearls and green amethyst really match up nicely.

We recently took the kids to one of our local Cranberry Bogs. It was really neat and we learned all about how cranberry's are harvested and that NJ is one of the main producers of the cranberry. Fun stuff! Saturday Nicholas and Melina had a blast at our church's harvest festival then out around the neighborhood trick-or-treating! They got way too much candy :)Happy Wordless Wednesday!
