August 28, 2014Visitation
Casa de Beth has been open for summer vacations. It's very convenient to visit a friend who lives in or near a major tourist area. In my case many come to go to New York City so I've become quite the tour guide and really look forward to these visits as it keeps me in touch with my city. I've found that once families settle into a house and routine they don't necessarily enjoy all their city or area has to offer. Until the recession challenged all our vacation monies then staycations became popular and our cities thrived from it. Last year I had an amazing Bend, Oregon experience when I went to visit a friend. We hiked, fly fished, went to yoga class, cooked, talked watched movies it was awesome. I am thrilled to reciprocate with a Broadway show, shopping on 5th Ave and a stroll through Greenwich Village. Swapping vacations are what good girlfriends do. So when can I expect you?
August 27, 2014Scheduling
Usually I eavesdrop on the karate moms while waiting for my double din black belt ( hey a moms gotta brag) to take class. But it was in the restroom at karate after a kickboxing class that I heard my latest chick schtick. Two gals were washing their hands after class, ...
August 26, 2014Field Trip
Field trips are an important part of the school year. I remember being sick for my second grade field trip. I was devastated to miss our class trip to the Philadelphia Zoo, that really was worse than the chicken pox I had. My kids will never understand that since there ...
August 25, 2014Attention K-Mart Shoppers
In looking back on my columns it's been filled with travel. I'm so content to people watch and eavesdrop. Lots of great content happens this way. I'm waiting on a flight right now and the gate agent is hilarious. Let's just say he'd like to give you a run form your ...
August 22, 2014Outlet
While at the Charlotte, South Carolina airport I learned that a working electrical wall outlet is considered prime real estate. You see many people sitting in the floor plugged in and texting away. I could have probably charged for the one by my seat. The look of ...
August 21, 2014Sweet Potato Cake
Hello from Charlotte, South Carolina. This is such a charming area, too bad I just spent the last three hours at the airport. I'm in town for a CMB board meeting and last night our group went to Mert's for Soul Food. Salmon cakes, chicken wings bigger than a newborn, ...
August 20, 2014Surf and Save
I am not a mall shopper. When a trip is eminent I plan accordingly with a list in hand. I needed; a gift card from American Eagle, t-shit from Hot Topic, shoes from Macy's and another shirt from The Gap my daughter and I ventured to the mall last night arriving ...
August 19, 2014Let Go
Once a woman grasps on to something she usually doesn't let go for awhile unless she's non-committal and that typical joke usually blames a man for the punch line. My girlfriend Rosie decided one day out of the blue that she would never eat beef again. She read ...
August 18, 2014Keep it Clean
Cleaning supplies don't really fall in the category of dumb things I gotta buy. That's stuff that's needed; Swiffers, mops, sponges, toilet bowl cleaner etc. I was shopping for some cleaning supplies for my daughter who will be moving into a dorm room. The Dollar ...
August 15, 2014Mo Milk
Different regions take and order their coffee differently. Ordering coffee in the south is different compared to the north east coast I am accustomed to, this is where regular coffee automatically comes with milk and sugar and "light and sweet" is a way of life. Cream ...
