I Choose Comfort For Christmas

I Choose Comfort For Christmas

You know what’s worse than being in the stores on Christmas Eve for last minute Christmas shopping, wrapping hundreds of gifts late into the night before Santa’s arrival and preparing an endless bounty of food for all your relatives? Being pregnant with your third kid while doing all the above. The Anti Mom Blog family is expanding to one more, and my belly is officially growing by the minute. I wasn’t even out of my first trimester and my clothes were already too tight and the pooch popped. To add to my already growing list of stress this holiday season,…

Palm Beach Zoo: South Florida’s Hidden Gem

Disclaimer: I was provided tickets to the zoo in exchange for a review and giveaway. All thoughts and opinions are my own as always!  I am little hesitant to even tell you all what I’m about tell you. Selfishly, I don’t want to let the best kept secret of South Florida out of the bag! But, I am not that much of a creep, so I am going to fill you in on the amazingness that is the Palm Beach Zoo. Starting as just a petting zoo back in the 1950’s, the Palm Beach Zoo has flourished and grown to be…

Chocolate Crinkle Cookies

Chocolate Crinkle Cookies

Typically, we don’t do a ton of baking in our household. We leave that up to my mom who has it mastered down to a science. I sometimes may give off the vibe that I do not bake, but there is not one Christmas that goes by that I don’t make cookies! I recently started making Chocolate Crinkle Cookies because they were my absolute favorite cookie growing up. I used to love to help my mom bake and these were ones she would let me take the reigns on. Now that I have two daughters of my own, I like…

One Stop Holiday Shopping at BJ’s Wholesale Club

One Stop Holiday Shopping at BJ’s Wholesale Club

BJ’s Wholesale is the place to be this holiday season! Your time is very valuable around the holidays and the last thing you need to be doing is going from store to store getting everything you need. The grocery store for food, the mall and toy store for gifts, the local Christmas tree tent or Home Depot for a tree – I am getting exhausted just writing this! Forget that holiday rat race and head to BJ’s Wholesale Club. This place has everything – and I mean EVERYTHING you need for the holidays all under their big old roof. I…

Hanukkah Round Up

Hanukkah Round Up

Hanukkah is officially here! For the next 8 days and nights, The Festival of Light is upon us. That means some great east, lots of candles, presents and of course, family! My husband is Jewish but coincidentally never really celebrated Hanukkah. After we got married, I thought we should start celebrating Hanukkah for our kids sake. So there I was, 6 months pregnant planning my very first Hanukkah dinner. I made matzoh ball soup, stuffed cabbage and latkes (aka potato pancakes). We lit the menorah, ate like champs and exchanged little presents. It was everything a non-Jewish girl thought it…

Rustic Chicken Recipe

Rustic Chicken Recipe

We are a chicken family. I’m telling you, we eat so much we may start clucking soon and I’m totally okay with that. My husband and I share a love for cooking and eating, so it’s not rare for him to jump into the kitchen on any given night to try out a recipe he found. Not long ago, he did just this and thinking about it is making my mouth water. He reluctantly told me he was watching Ina Garten’s Barefoot Contessa and saw her make a delicious roasted rustic chicken with croutons. The way he was raving about…

Trader Joe’s Mandarin Orange Chicken

Trader Joe’s Mandarin Orange Chicken

I do not hide my addiction to Trader Joe’s and frankly, I have an unhealthy obsession with going there. Lucky for us, the closest TJ’s is no more than 15 minutes away. We were trekking to Wellington (which is about a 45 minute trip) to do some TJ’s shopping and we couldn’t be happier with the newest location in Boca Raton. They really have such amazing deals and some of the best kept secrets that only TJ’s can offer up. I read on a blog that one of the items that was a must try at Trader Joe’s was their Mandarin…

Frozen Gift Guide

Frozen Gift Guide

Disney’s Frozen is the hottest thing ever and it’s no surprise the world of merchandising has capitalized on this immensely! My girls are constantly asking me for anything Frozen-related. The past couple months, the stores have been adding more and more Frozen merchandise to the shelves and they typically are flying right off! Not surprised at all. So just some friendly advice – if you see something Frozen-related and are contemplating getting it – just get it! More than likely the next time you go back for it, it won’t be there. To avoid any toy aisle fights, I found…
