Over Thanksgiving Break, we were introduced to Telestrations, and it is hands down, the most fun board game I have played in a long time. It is the perfect family game — fast moving, easy, enjoyable for every age, and so much fun.
Immediately after the first time we played this, I purchased one for our family. It is a game that the kids ASK and BEG to play — it is so fun for everyone in the family.
The game is exactly what it sounds like — a combination of telephone and pictionary. You receive a word, you have to draw it, and then the next person guesses it, the next person draws it, etc….It is so fun and every time I play, we laugh SO much.
Over Spring Break, we became pickleball obsessed. So much that we played every single day and even bought our own equipment — which is big news for our family that never partakes in racket sports together….
We were first introduced to the sport at our resort in Mexico where they had a court. Pickleball is basically a small court tennis but played with a wiffleball type of ball.
Every morning for the past several years, the first thing I do is complete the mini NY Times crossword puzzle. I have a competition on who can do it fastest with my brother and father and send them my times when I am proud of them (anything under 40 seconds). I usually can tell how smart I am going to be that day based on my success on the mini crossword. I have it as an app on my phone, but you can also do it on the computer. It is fun, addictive, and not time consuming — which I love!
In the app, there is also the bigger crossword (thanks but no thanks) and Spelling Bee!
I know, I know, May is ALMOST OVER (GULP SLASH HOORAY!) but here is what I am loving this month!
1. Come From Away
Heart warming yet super emotional play.
I have always categorized myself as “sensitive” and “emotional,” and for whatever reason, I am currently even more so this past week. During these phases, I am prone to feeling like an outsider… overlooked, unseen, and forgotten. At times, I have let those irrational feelings get me down. So yes, I am trying to look at the silver linings, and realize what is important (or not important), and to feel grateful for what I have and who I am. So it is no surprise that when I saw the Broadway show “Dear Evan Hansen” this week, it struck a chord… a number of them.
Happy early Fashion Week! The Josie Natori Fall ’15 show is at 10 AM this morning. I’ll be recapping tomorrow, but check out Natori’s Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter for coverage all day. Bonne chance! On to today’s post….
Even though my husband is the son of a fashion designer, his wardrobe was far from fashionable when I first met him. Think oversized shirts, boxy suits, pleated shorts, and even worse…. baggy pants. I don’t like taking credit for much, but I definitely have had a positive influence on his wardrobe, with the biggest difference being that Ken now wears clothes that fit. You gotta love a man in some tight fitting pants! Ken has improved his wardrobe with a number of different brands. I did a post a few years ago on shirts, and the latest evolution has been casual pants from Bonobos.
