Have We Found Our Next Car? Video - Meet the 2013 Chevy Traverse

Needed: three rows, comfortable ride, solid, safe family car

We are on the hunt for a new car. Both of our cars have over 125,000 miles on them and both are almost 10 years old. I know there are cars that can make it to over 200,000 miles but I'm just not interested in gambling on TWO cars because the money it takes to keep them going might not make sense when there is 0% financing right now!

FOUND: 2013 Chevy Traverse is Perfect for Families

In any event, in a future post I will document ALL the vehicles I've test-driven and give you my insights. For now, the friendly folks at General Motors and @GMNortheast allowed me to drive the new Chevy Traverse for an entire week.

Let me tell you... ALL dealers should allow this because you can easily fall in love with a car after driving it for a week. I have spent a week in other GM cars including the ectremely eco-friendly (and wallet-friendly) Chevy Cruze, and the luxurious and roomy Cadillac XTS. But the Traverse fit me, our family, our needs, and our lifestyle PERFECTLY.

Here is a video tour of the Chevy Traverse where I point out all the features that made me fall in love with it!

Disclosure: I received a Chevy Traverse for a week and I was not otherwise compensated nor contracted to write this post. All opinions are my own and this post was not required, reviewed nor approved prior to being published.



Happy Valentine's Day! Our song to us

This Valentine's Day we celebrated with a family dinner - normal for us - and everyone exchanged cards and took turns opening them up.

We also had cake.

Not just any cake

This Valentine's Day we had Ice Cream Cake from Carvel!!

Em went to a birthday party at Carvel where each child got to decorate their own mini ice cream cake to bring home. Not only did they have fun but...

can you think of a better goody bag???!?!?!?!

One that you EAT!

No plastic crap to toss out!


It also inspired a song...and candles:

Want your own?

Here's a coupon for a Carvel ice cream cake so you can enjoy one too!

Now just come up with an excuse to celebrate with one.

Hope you enjoyed your Valentine's Day surrounded by love,



How will the Frigidaire affinity washer and dryer measure up?

Everyone has a lot of laundry, I know that.
But we have the dreaded ladybug.
The thing may look cute on the outside but it's a huge, bottomless pit of dirty, stinky, moldy, icky, bacteria-thriving laundry.

The ladybug is what we use for the girls' laundry and they fill it up 1-2 times a week. It measures 21 inches high by 17 inches wide. When filled it weighs about 25 lbs.

Here's a quick video showing how much laundry fits in the ladybug and how much of the ladybug fits into my current washing machine.

Please ignore my messy laundry room. I'd like to see yours!

I weighed and measured what was left after shooting the video and I measured another 10 inches (high) of laundry weighing approximately 12 lbs (I lost my helper so this is an approximation).

I can only say, I hope the Frigidaire affinity washer and dryer can hold more!
What do you think - how much more of the ladybug will the affinity hold?

My WUSA 9 segment. How did I do?

I can only tell you that I was winging this from the minute I said 'yes'. I wasn't entirely sure of the topic other than I was there as a mom blogger. I wasn't sure what to wear. I ran into terrible traffic to the point that I thought I would miss the segment entirely. And I got lost, a little, on the way. Don't ask as it's a straight shot down Wisconsin Ave. but I drove right past it.

Anywhoo, here's the piece. Let me know how I did!

Twofer get surprised with Disney for their 6th Birthday!

I am known for throwing elaborate birthday parties for the Twofer. I do this somewhat unconsciously. I can't help it. It has something to do with the slight depression that comes over me around April. This depression stems from the fact that my dad passed away when El & Em were just 3 weeks old.
Here's the math:

Twofer Birthday + Anniversary of Dad's dying = let's throw a party and keep our mind off of remembering!

Last year's party (over 40 kids) has cured me...I think I'm finally over it.

This year the birthday party will be in Florida at Disney World!

We decided to take advantage of the Free on Your Birthday promotion and plan a little trip to Disney World instead of a big party. Here is what the girls thought when we finally revealed the surprise this past weekend:

This will most definitely be a series of posts and I will provide a running tab and links so you get the whole story no matter where you pick it up.

Looking for my Mouse ears,
