I have not been to a Chuck E Cheese’s birthday party since I was a kid — until last week. So. Much. Fun! The pure joy on my daughters’ faces made me giddy from the time we walked in. Everyone had such a great time — yes, even the adults.
When it comes to shoes, there is a fine line between choosing shoes for aesthetics and comfort. Let’s face it; a lot of cutest shoes are not the most comfortable. I know, I have them in my closet too. But what if you could have super cute boots that received glowing compliments and were really, […]
If you have ever wanted to play a video game for “just five more minutes” so you could beat the next level, then its time to get off the couch and use your desire to level up to help you get fit. Goji Play takes gaming to a new level by using the motion of working out […]

This post brought to you by Chobani. The content and opinions expressed below are that of The Suburban Mom. Thanks to my husband, my youngest loves Greek yogurt. Loves it. And it is all because her daddy eats Greek yogurt and a banana for breakfast everyday. From the time she could eat yogurt he has shared […]
In an ideal world, my kids would eat fruits and veggies at every meal. In fact, they would choose fruits and veggies for every snack. The whole family would eat the correct MyPlate portions all day long. In a perfect world… But while I do my best, I live in the real world. The go-go-go world where kids want […]
Before I became pregnant with my oldest, I had never eaten an organic food. Well, maybe once or twice by chance, but it certainly wasn’t something I sought out. I never looked at ingredients, and I never thought about how something was made. If it tasted good, I ate it. Then I got pregnant, and […]
“Mom, my throat is dry and scratchy.” Sigh. That’s how it starts in our house, with a quiet whisper of a “dry” throat. That’s my clue that a cold is about to make its way through the family. But the question is, will it be a small cold or something bigger? I am never sure. Thanks to […]
I have a confession to make. I can’t stand emptying the dishwasher. When my husband goes out of town, we use the clean dishes out of the dishwasher and let the dirties pile up in the sink until it is overflowing. My poor husband is left to empty the dishwasher 9 times out of 10. (In […]

I am so excited about the newest piece of furniture in my house. It is exactly what I have wanted for ages, and now it is mine. It looks perfect, it will be fun to decorate each season and best of all this Providence Buffet Table/Media Console from Better Homes and Gardens for Walmart has storage! For […]
From short trips to the beach, weekend trips to Disney and a seven-hour road trip to North Carolina, my family has plans to be on the road a lot this summer. Destination fun! But on the way to fun, I’ve gotta keep the kiddos fed. Because inevitably someone is always hungry. Always. This summer families on the […]
It’s pool season, and my girls have already begun the daily request to go swimming. While my oldest has turned into a fish, diving and swimming, my little needs a bit more confidence. She is taking swim lessons, but for now she prefers to stay on the steps. To help her gain confidence in the water, I got her a Stearns Puddle Jumper.
Fairies, adventure, love and rock and roll! That is the new animated film by George Lucas Strange Magic, and my girls loved it. Now available on DVD, Strange Magic is a magical story about fairies who just happen to know some very popular rock and roll tunes. So popular that my daughters were amazed when mom and […]
A good sandwich always makes me think of my grandfather. He loved a thick sandwich with meat, cheese and veggies piled high. He used to call it an Army man’s sandwich. Of course, a sandwich isn’t complete without my favorite condiment — mayonnaise. And making a sandwich with Hellmann’s Real Mayonnaise just got easier with […]
