I'm A Little Bit Country...

Last fall, I wrote a post about a visit we took to The Catskills and how we fell in love with the magic of it. We haven't stopped thinking about wanting to explore some more areas and potentially purchasing a "get out of the city home" there. It's a quick drive from Hoboken. Most areas take about an hour to an hour and a half to get to and we can tell you right now, it's worth it! The Catskills, to me, maintains the nostalgic vibe of what it was in its hey-day! It's a place to unplug, spend time with your family, and just have fun in FRESH AIR at your own pace. We decided to try a completely different type of resort than the bungalow village we visited last time. You can read more about that

Little List: Bring Your Baby Workouts

The early days and months of motherhood are hectic and overwhelming. Getting back to the gym is difficult, especially when you have an adorable little one who needs you every 5 minutes (okay...maybe every 2 minutes).

Get Glam at the 2nd Annual Beauty Bar

Last year, we tried an idea and sold out FAST! Beauty Bar was a super fun GNO complete with vendors, services, cocktails, treats, and the much-talked about and highly Instagrammed gift bags. People took Ubers home just because of the massive bags! This year, we made it bigger and better...all of it! We have three types of tickets...VIP scores you the ULTIMATE gift bag, Standard scores you a really really good gift bag, and the General Admission with no bag option gets you all the free stuff that the others get you: Makeup Demos and Tutorials from Amanda Mayr Photo Booth from Platinum Photo Booths Braid Bar from Blo It Out Lounge Express Manicures from Suite Tee Massages from Hudson Sport a

Like so many in Hoboken, we are big fans of Dr. Kapoor and the team at Hoboken Smile Specialists. When Dr. Kapoor first opened her doors, we both booked appointments for our kids' first dentist appointments. The first appointment can be so stressful, and we were excited & comforted by the idea of a dedicated pediatric dental practice. Those first appointments for both Eliza & Kane were great, and we have been singing the praises of Hoboken Smile Specialists ever since. It has been three years since Dr. Kapoor first opened her doors, and so much has changed in both her personal and professional lives! After welcoming her baby girl last year, Dr. Kapoor got a first hand look into every day lif

Father's Day Contest Finalists!

WHO'S THE BEST DADDY?! WINNER GETS A FREE FAMILY PHOTOSHOOT FROM LITTLE HOBOKEN PHOTOGRAPHY! Submitted by his wife, Casey: "I know there are tons of amazing fathers out there, but my little man’s dad is the best :). I knew my husband, Josh, was going to be an amazing father by the way he’s raised our, now 8 year old, pup, Bear, but ever since our little Nate was born, Josh has continued to blow me away. He is a natural, hands on daddy — always there to support our family, whether that means to get our little 5 month old Nate to giggle, change a blowout diaper (and clothes, bedding...all you mama’s and daddy’s have been there), give Nate some extra snuggles and rocks when he’s worked up and w

One PROUD Family

HAPPY PRIDE MONTH! The month of June is "Gay Pride Month" and we couldn't be prouder to introduce you to this family. Sam & Ashley, along with their son Wyatt have made Hoboken home. When we shared on our Instagram that we wanted to feature local LGBTQ families, these two reached out wanting to share their love and beautiful family with the rest of us. They wanted to help us highlight the diversity in our city, as well as normalize the conversation around LGBTQ families. We met up with them for a photoshoot & to discuss all that the community should know about this Hoboken family. Tell us how you met! The good old-fashioned way-- at a bar! We both reluctantly went out on a random Thursday

The Property Mom: Interest Rates and Buying a Home

If you take a look at the news on any given day, you are guaranteed to come across a headline about the recent rise in mortgage interest rates across the country. Understandably, this news can cause some concern if you are in the market to purchase a new home. As a real estate agent, I frequently get asked by buyers what this means for their home purchase plans. I advise my clients that a rise in interest rates should not deter them, and being knowledgeable about the topic will help them to better navigate the buying process. Today’s interest rates are currently staying near 4%, however, many economists say interest rates will continue to trend upward this year, and an increase closer to

2019 Father's Day Gift Guide!

Dads. They are superheroes, protectors, grill masters, best friends, and can rile up the kids like no one else. They may have some trouble dressing your kid for school or locating the jelly in the refrigerator (at eye-level, right in front), but mine takes out the garbage and kills spiders, so hey, it's a trade-off I can live with. That's not all, of course. The dads in my life provide comic relief during chaotic situations, handle bedtime like a champ, and make sure everyone is safe and happy at the end of the day. Dads often want for nothing, or occasionally ask for something really exciting.. like socks. This year, I tried to come up with a mix of both unique and more traditional it
