Pizza to Pork Pie

My Aunt Kathleen, who’s a nutritionist, teamed up with Martha Stewart’s personal trainer to create a healthier coffee enhanced with green tea, Yerba matte and astralagus and you know what? It’s actually really good. It’s called ULIVJava and it’s under the Martha Stewart umbrella of products. That’s them with Martha on her radio show the other day.

They’re working on getting distribution at the moment, and right now the iced coffee is available in some grocery stores in NYC, Long Island and Westchester.

The ground coffee, which I like so much I purchased when my samples ran out, is available on eBay & the ULIVjava website. I think it tastes chocolatey, without even adding anything - my aunt said that’s the astralagus.

I have some coupons for a free iced coffee that I swiped from my Mom (she’s been doing tastings to help out), so if anyone wants one, feel free to send me your address. Don’t worry, you’re not signing up for any kind of distribution list or anything. It will literally just be me writing your address on an envelope and popping it in the mail.

I wasn’t compensated at all for this - I just actually like it!

I feel like it’s a rite of passage for a toddler to have a picture of themselves climbing in a cabinet and playing with pots and pans.

Shh, don’t tell Fergie’s work that he’s not actually traveling today. He was at a weekend conference and flew back yesterday, but told his office that he’s traveling today.

The original plan was for Fergie to go kayaking this morning, but the place was closed so we made an impromptu trip to the park where we saw some trains (choo choo!) and geese (ducks! close enough).

I swear, every day she surprises me with a new word. It’s just amazing to see that all this chatting I’ve been doing to her since she was born has actually sunk in.

Currently her favorite words are “shoes”, “eyes”, “car” and unfortunately for Nate and me, “no”

Fearless. 

She tried to pet the stingrays too but her little arms were too short to reach.

I’m not sure what it says about my parenting style that she refuses to put the cell phone and maraca down so she can push with both hands.

Apparently the St Leo carnival is a Stamford summer tradition, so we had to make a trip up there.

Pizza fritti is the thing to get, either savory like above with sauce and cheese, or sweet with powdered sugar and Nutella.

I cannot tell you how embarrassed Fergie was to win that giant dog for Gemma. He said he felt like he was stealing since he won it on the first try. Gemma on the other hand was thrilled!

Happy national dog day to my first baby, my favorite sausage dog and the most ridiculous dog I know.

This child is such a ham. She heard the click of the camera, took the bowl off her face and said “cheese!”

Impossible to get a good picture of the two of them. Gemma wanted to point out the doggies on the bench and their eyes (ob-sessed with eyes at the moment) and Nate wanted to eat her granola bar that she abandoned on the bench.

With no plans yesterday, we decided to take an impromptu trip down to NYC. Fergie’s old rugby team was playing some touch rugby in Central Park so that’s where we headed.

My brother and his girlfriend met us in the park (hence the Heineken in a brown paper bag that Gemma took a liking to).

It always seems like a bit of a schlep loading us all in the car and packing her diaper bag full of food, drinks and snacks but every time we’ve gone down to the city we’ve been impressed by how well behaved she’s been.

It was also fun to take her to Central Park since that’s where Fergie and I had our first date 5 years ago on Thursday!
