Pizza Making at Rosso NYC

New York, NY 10011
(212) 242-2310

My girls love to cook and bake. They are constantly watching shows on the Cooking Channel and Food Network like Cupcake wars and their absolute favorite Netflix series which they've watched over 10 times, Zumbo's Just Desserts. So when we heard about Rossopomodoro (Rossonyc) offering kids pizza making classes we couldn't pass on the opportunity.

This service is fairly new so if you'd like to book a class or party just call the restaurant and let them know. It's super affordable and so much fun. The restaurant provides all the ingredients as well as an apron and a chef's hat. I mean, who doesn't want to be a chef for a day?

Maternity Style

Mixing hi's and low's is one of my favorite outfit combinations. 
Since I've been struggling to find cute maternity clothes during this pregnancy, I have to rely on my trusty readers to recommend shops where I can potentially find fun items that aren't the obvious maxi dresses.

Happy Birthday Jayleen

Every passing year is bittersweet. Hazel turned 7 earlier this month and today Jayleen turns 10!! I’m really grateful for the young ladies these two are becoming but I’m also sad to see their not babies anymore. #happybirthday

Cada año que pasa es agridulce. Hazel cumplió 7 años al principio de este mes y hoy Jayleen cumple 10 años. Estoy muy agradecida por las dos señoritas que se están convirtiendo, pero también estoy triste de ver que ya no son bebés.

Getting Out of a Creative Funk

IMG_6517

I guess you could say I've been in a creative funk lately. Waking up and doing anything at this point seems impossible. Some of it has to do with my complicated pregnancy and some with just personal issues. I honestly try to shake it off but at times it seems pointless. Nonetheless, I continue with my daily uplifting routine such as my shower ritual (read if you missed it here), breathing exercises and reading uplifting quotes. Here are some of my favorite inspirational quotes that I am currently loving and always put me in a better mood.

Happy Birthday Hazel

I can't believe this little girl is already 7 years old. Where does the time go?
For her birthday I brought her over to CoolMess. This is a fun ice-cream making shop where you can also have savory meals. We went here for lunch and for dessert decided to make our own ice-cream. Our toppings were Oreo cookies, marshmallows and caramel. 

Hazel isn't the type to love sweets but when it comes to vanilla ice-cream she's all over it. I knew she would love this place.

Yesterday I was feeling a little down and had major back pain from shoveling the snow last week. I know I shouldn't be doing this but I like to keep myself busy throughout the day. Anyways, Moe was really mad at me for doing so and recommended a few topics to write about on the blog that would keep me busy without having to do any lifting around the house. These were his exact words "Please don't do any heavy lifting. Use your strong mind and create something on your blog". One of his suggestions was doing a Spring cleaning post. I've seen these go around every year and they are all the same. They all talk about cleaning your house and organizing your closet. I wanted to provide something different.
