It's Opening Day!

Spring is here...and with that comes much anticipated nicer weather, the desire to be outdoors and baseball season. I will admit I am not a huge professional sports fan, but I do have a special connection to this team...keep reading to learn more. If you are a Philadelphia sports fan, there is somet...

Fun Friday....movie events

Dinner and a movie...perhaps the most classic fun Friday night there is, and of course another thing which has been limited over the past year. We are lucky to have the luxury of watching many new and recent movies in the comfort of our own homes with all the streaming that is available, but let's n...

Fun Friday...finish your day sparkling!

So here we are..."the Working Moms" just a couple of hours ago celebrating the end of a busy week. What better for a fun Friday idea, than drinks with a good friend after a long work day. I finished up in the OR and then stopped by Lisa's place which is just 10 minutes from wh...

Fun Friday...Get dressed up & support a good cause!

A night out with great food, people, music and dancing can be so much fun. When it is also a fundraiser for a great cause it becomes a charity gala, and it can be a very special night. A dear friend I work with has been involved in organizing an incredible event for the past 7 years in support of Sp...

Fun Friday...For little kids and big "kids" too!

Roller coasters aren't for everyone, but what kid does not enjoy a day at an amusement park?  When your kids are small, some parks are better than others. You definitely want something geared toward younger, smaller kids or it will be a frustrating day when they can't get on most of the rides. ...

Fun Friday...A view from the sky

August of 2018...A day in NYC to celebrate my younger daughter's 16th birthday which is actually in September, but she wanted to have this day before my oldest went off to college. She chose to spend the day in her favorite city with an activity she had wanted to do for a long time. We also brought ...

Fun Friday...International Travel: Part 2...Italy

Earlier this month, I did a "Fun Friday" post about international travel, and mentioned I would do a follow up post about a trip to Italy, so here it is! As we are almost at the end of the first month of 2021, we have not seen any change in our travel restrictions, and sadly I think it may...

Fun Friday...Something New...Polo!

An opportunity to try something new can be a little scary depending what it is, but also so much fun. I grew up around horses and used to ride competitively when I was in high school. My younger daughter has also been a competitive rider over the past several years. It has been a lot of fun to now b...

Fun Friday...European travel...high hopes for this again in 2021

First of all, I would like to wish everyone a very Happy New Year and a wonderful 2021!! The expectations are huge for this year, so let's hope it can bring back some sense of normalcy to the world. A major part of that would be the ability for us to safely and freely travel. This has been missed mo...

Fun Friday...The holidays at Hershey Park!

Hershey Park... the home of great rides, a water park and of course chocolate world has some wonderful festivities around the holidays. We live just over an hour from Hershey, so we have taken full advantage of this over the years. When my kids were younger, we went for an overnight trip once at Chr...

Fun Friday...let's have a party at the concert!


I will never get tired of this view during a Carbon Leaf concert at World Cafe Live in Philadelphia.  If you saw yesterday's post, you have been introduced to my love for this band. I took a little trip down memory lane yesterday with photos from concerts over the year...

Fun Friday...Post-Thanksgiving Edition

First of all, I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Celebrations were likely smaller than usual for a lot of people, but based on all the posts I saw on social media, many embraced the idea of a more intimate dinner with immediate family and still managed to enjoy and feel thankful.

Fun Friday...A little opera with dinner!

I think most of us realize now more than ever, that one of the ways we like to have fun is going out to a restaurant. The limitations we have dealt with over the past several months and continue to deal with now have definitely changed this simple yet enjoyable activity. It can be fun to have favori...

Fun Friday...a long weekend away and a new activity!

In November of 2016 we took a short pre-Thanksgiving trip to another one of our favorite places, Naples, Florida. It was a common place for me to go for orthopedic meetings, so the girls and my mom joined me for one and loved it there. We then went for spring break a couple of times, and it became a...

Fun Friday...Party time!

When one daughter is a senior and the other is a sophomore, it's a great time to have a pre-homecoming party for both! What better way to have fun than to throw a party. We enjoy having parties at our house, and this was a special one. It was the pre-party before the Homecoming dance in 2017. We hav...

Fun Friday...Halloween Edition

As I explained in yesterday's post, I love Halloween and not only have I had fun at home with my kids, but also at work with my partners and staff. Several years ago, I suggested we have a Halloween Happy Hour in the office just for something to do at the end of a work day to boost morale. I thought...

Fun Friday...A favorite for fall!

Crisp weather, beautiful colors, pumpkin patches and corn mazes are just some of the wonderful things which come along with the transition to the fall season. For many years we went to the same farm every October to pick pumpkins, which usually included a hay ride out to one of the fields, and their...

Fun Friday...The teenage girl concert scene...also great for mom & nana!

We all love music in my family, and there is nothing better than live music.  Concerts are so much fun. Both of my daughters have favorite artists, and we were able to see them in concert several times.  These were all amazing experiences. I too have a favorite band which will be a good to...
