A Beginner’s Guide to Surviving Winter in New York

To many people of the world, the winters up in northern USA are pure insanity. With snow piled inches high and temperatures below freezing, it’s almost a wonder anyone gets through it unscathed.

Native New Yorkers are used to these temperatures; they’ve weathered these storms since they were born. But for those of us from elsewhere in the states, you might not know exactly what to expect from your first winter in NY. If you find yourself relocating up toward the big apple, remember these tips to keep yourself from (metaphorically and literally) getting buried beneath the snow.

1. Buy Thick Winter Clothes

You may think you know what winter feels like, but it’s better to be safe than miserable after stepping out in below freezing temperatures because you wore a coat that was too light. Far more important than fashion is function in this instance. Before winter hits, stock up on some specialized winter outerwear and clothes that can be layered. Think things like puffa jackets, chunky woolen jumpers and thick boot socks. You’ll need thermal gloves and underwear, and a hat thats padded to keep your head and ears warm. Long johns may seem like overkill now, but you’ll be so grateful to have them as winter sets in Long before November, stock up on things that’ll keep you warm. Not
everything will look cute, but as long as you don’t freeze, it’s done
what it needs to do.

2.

2. Proper Footwear Is Important

Get yourself a proper pair of boots. Better yet, get yourself
a couple pairs. Sturdy boots coupled with a pair of thick socks will help you wade through snow and not get frostbite doing it. Your boots should also have a good grip. New York is a walking city, and you don’t want to fall flat on ice while trying to get a latté. Again, try not to worry about whether they’re fashionable. It’s far more important that they protect your feet.

3. Invest in Your Home

When you’re not out walking the New York streets, you’re probably going to be in your home trying to keep the heat going. During the winter, the moisture in and around your house or apartment can cause mold and fungus to grow. Take the time to have your home treated before the winter completely sets in and worsens the infestation. Focus on breaking the mold in Brooklyn , NY by investing in a company that’ll come look at your home and treat the mold that’s nestled into your property.

4. Be Careful Where You Stand

I can’t emphasize this enough: avoid standing next to intersections at all costs. Sure, it’s typically normal to stand at the intersection while you wait for the light to change so you can cross the street. But consider this, during the day all of the snow and slush will start to melt and will collect on the sides of the streets. This melted snow combines with everything else on the street including dirt. If a car drives past you while you’re standing at the corner, you’ll be sure to get covered from head to toe in cold, gray slush. Be smart and stand back from corners and sidewalk edges. A dry pedestrian is a happy pedestrian.

5. Snow Removal

Be aware of how snow is removed from your area. If you’re renting or in an apartment building, you’re lucky. You don’t have to worry about keeping the snow off of the sidewalks. That’s your landlord’s job. It’s them that you’ll complain to if the snow becomes a problem. If you’re a homeowner, you’re responsible for shoveling that snow yourself or hiring someone to do it for you. You want the area around your home to be clean and safe for you and others to walk on, so remember to shovel your walkway. Winter in New York can be brutal, but if you’re prepared, you can survive it just like a native.
When the snow finally starts falling, put your warmth before everything else and invest in the things that’ll keep you safe and happy.

Haggar’s Men’s Dress Pants Review #Jeans #CasualWear #Jeans #BigAndTall

haggar1

I received two pairs of pants from Haggar’s Clothing for my son. I have to say that sometimes ordering clothing online makes me a little nervous with not knowing if I’m ordering the right size. I’m sure you can relate it to having those feelings as well. However, Haggar’s made it really easy to know how to order on their site. They had an easy chart to figure out the size that my son would need in their Big and Tall section. It was an easy two clicks for the size and they were ordered! I know it couldn’t get any easier then that! I was so excited for them to arrive because I wanted to see the pants in person, because trying to find pants in the stores is really a nightmare for us. My son does not enjoy shopping and going in and out of at the minimum of 10 stores to find pants for him. So I was so hoping those days would come to an end with Haggar’s. I know that’s a lot of pressure to put on a purchase! Although, I’m sure we are not the only ones that feel this way.

When the pants arrived I literally ripped the package open because I couldn’t want to see if our shopping nightmares were coming to an end. I felt the pants material and I have to say that I loved it! It was a very nice quality material, not scratchy at all, I loved the invisible expandable waistline, I could not find one thing that I didn’t like about them. So I sent my son off to try them on, there was some grumbling of course that he had to try them on. However, I could hear him from his room when he yelled “Whoo hooo! They fit mom!” I have NEVER had my son excited over pants fitting! Seriously, I was SO excited myself, no driving all over to different stores and trying on more pants then I care to think about, no son having a fit after the 3rd store that had nothing that would fit him! OMG! our shopping for his pants just got so easy by just signing into my Haggar’s account, finding the pants he wants, selecting the size and ordering then we can just sit back and relax till they arrive in 4-5 days! WHAT! someone pinch me because I can’t believe it’s true! I could have done cartwheels down the street knowing that I didn’t have to go through the nightmare shopping trips and my son was excited over his pants. That’s an epic win for this mom! No, that’s not even close to an exaggerated statement! If you don’t believe me, we can take my son shopping for pants and you can have a first hand experience of the shopping nightmare. lol I’m more than happy to share the shopping experience with you, you may run screaming into the night after the 3rd store we go in!

haggar2

The jeans fit perfectly as well! I also loved that they offered a variety of shades of the jean colors as well, so that he doesn’t look like he is wearing the same jeans everyday. I do wish that they offered a black jean color as my son really likes them. However, other then that, we loved the comfort of the way the jeans fit. The material was so comfortable to my son and he is picky about jeans! The material has a quality feel to them and the ones I chose for him were stretchy as well so that they would be more comfortable for him. He was again yelling out “MOM! They fit! I’m wearing them now!” Who is this child??? I have never seen them so excited about trying on pants and them fitting. There has always been frustration, anger, both of us annoyed, but never such excitement! We have found our go to for all his pants needs! They fit perfectly, he loves the way that they feel, fit, and he is excited to wear them!

Haggar3

I also love that Haggar Clothing has great deals on their clothing like for Father’s Day they are offering a great deal! You can purchase 3 pairs of pants for just $85 or 3 pairs of shorts for $55 with FREE shipping! The deal ends on 6/9 so hurry over to get your Father’s Day gifts so Dad can be as happy as my son! Trust me, he will just LOVE them! Don’t forget to use the promo code: 3FORDAD at the checkout to grab this great deal!

Attachment Parenting and How to Practice It Safely

baby sleeping holding parent finger

There are plenty of parenting styles and philosophies and finding the right one for you is most important. Attachment parenting is a philosophy that many parents take ideas from. It’s the general idea that a mother and child should stay physically close at all times, whether that be touching or within reach. For many, probably including you, this seems like common sense, but being committed to attachment parenting can be more difficult than people originally think.

For some parents it’s less of a choice and more of a necessity. Every child is different, and some simply need more attention than others to function. Some babies can be strapped into a rocker and will instantly pass out, while others will start to whine if you so much as leave their sight. Obviously, these are all things that you learn as your infant grows. No child is the same, and they’re always growing and learning. Some parents have started less attached and suddenly become full users of the attachment parenting lifestyle simply because the baby learned it got what it wanted if it cried more often. Kids can be tough.

Sleeping Arrangements

One of the most heavily debated facets of attachment parenting is having the baby sleep close to mum. If you’ve done any research or talked to almost any mother, you know that even the idea of sleeping next to a baby is a scary idea because of S.I.D.S (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome). But with new technologies and research, many of those fears are no longer an issue. New developments in co-sleep beds are actually a great help to many mothers with fussy or overactive infants. Having a hand on the baby while they sleep (and while you sleep) is a great way to help the child fall asleep and stay asleep. One mother who used attachment parenting even started her own blog about her experience and the research she did on the way, and sites like https://cosleepercots.co.uk provide a great resource for new parents of even second or third time parents looking to try something new.

Co-sleeping arrangements have had lots of studies done on them, as well as the alternative, which is usually sleep training. Co-sleeping is said to support mother and child attachment, as well as help to prevent separation anxiety. However, many people are easily dissuaded from its perks because they don’t know how it works or the best way to do it – they just hear the negative press. But with new technologies like co-sleeper cribs, the dangers of co-sleeping have been eliminated while it’s perks are enhanced.

How to Throw the Perfect White Party This Summer

white party

Need a break from the vibrant color-filled parties? Try removing all the colors and instead indulge in an all-white theme. Normally, white parties can be set up with the most minimalistic looking furniture and some arrangements for lighting. White is also the most preferred theme for weddings. So, if you are planning to throw your wedding after-party or a chic summer all-white party, you ought to find wedding rentals near me for styling and design of your party. Here are a few areas to focus on to blend the theme equally well across the setup.

Décor

Everything from the furniture, the garlands, to the lighting and the balloons can be white. This creates an all-dimensional ambiance that looks superbly white. Throwing off a completely white theme might miss out on the specialty of metallic edges. I mean, total white-out may not turn out to be what you have expected but metallic finishes and silver linings can give a special feel to it. When organizing your seating arrangement, carve out an ultimately relaxing area with white living room furniture complemented by silver or gold pillows. Cornering the furniture from all sides, high cocktail tables should be set up for the guests to get handy with the booze. For centerpieces to look magical, load up white flowers to keep the floral density minimal and inspiring. If you are hosting a day event, lighting can’t do much good. However, if you’re kicking it off in the evening, paper lanterns with warm lights can mesmerize everyone with the striking golden glow all through the night. You cannot forget balloons – stock up the place with small and large ones to notch up the atmosphere of the party.

Drinks

Champagne should run like water at the event. The guest should be served at the start and there must be frequent rounds to sensitize them with the party. An efficient caliber of bartenders should be showing skills and creativity by preparing a special line of ‘white’ cocktails, mojitos and margaritas. Lemon drop martinis and white sangria should lead in the lineup of drinks. Make sure the drinks are light and there should be an arrangement for guests who get hammered enough. One more thing, serve the drinks on metal trays or white trays with silver edges to intensify the appeal. Remember, these extra metal touches provide for the richness of the theme and have a captivating aura to it!

Food

The theme entails light food for serving. You can, though, have a couple of energy-rich foods on the menu too. Don’t offload the courses of food at once, keep it consistently flowing. Start off with appetizers like cheesy puffs, sizzling skewered haloumi cheese served with white grapes, crab ravioli, buttered cauliflower and hot tartlets to mark a savory decadence. For desserts, creamy coconut bites, chopped banana topped with dark chocolate and vanilla eclairs brushed with maple syrup – just yum! For more delightful recipes, follow the link.

Extras

You can arrange for beaded necklaces or twig crowns for women while the men can have metallic handkerchiefs to go along with their ensembles.

portable folding bench

We are going to make sure your very comfortable at the games this summer because that’s very important to have a comfortable family cheer team.

So we have found the Cascade Mountain Tech Portable Reclining Seat to make those bleachers much more comfortable.

water bottles

Now that you have your comfortable seating, don’t forget you need to keep your family hydrated during the game! The adorable Personalized water bottles for the family everyone can have their names on them so that they know which one is theirs. They come in a variety of colors as well with your name engraved for you. You also want to make sure that you have plenty of snacks for the family, even more so if you have little tiny ones with you.

coleman cooler

The Coleman 42-Can Wheeled Soft Cooler With Hard Liner will make it easy to have lunch, snacks, and everything that you need handy. I don’t know about you but my kids start from the time we get to the field till we are ready to go home with the “I’m hungry!” or the “I want a snack!”. So I make sure I have healthy options available for them to choose from. I like to pack apples, grapes, and oranges for the kids to choose from for snacks. I also pack raisins in the pocket of the cooler to keep them handy for a smaller snack for the kids. We also pack a clean eating veggie pasta salad, sandwiches, and some other goodies for our lunch like string cheese. We are then ready for the game and to have everything we will need while there. I also pack extra drinks to refill out water bottles with so they stay cold on those hot days.

Your now all ready to go to the field, have a great time watching your child play. No matter what sport your child plays your going to be comfortable, have some great foods for the family to eat and keep them cooled. Not to mention on those hot days keep your child’s drink and the rest of your families drinks cool in those great water bottles with their names on them so that there is not the which drink is mine? I don’t want that one because it’s hers or his! You can have a relaxing day and just enjoy the game.

How to Talk With Your Teen about Dating Violence #Teen #DatingViolence

Teen-Talk

Teen dating violence is not one of the topics that a lot of parents think to cover with their child. You cover stranger Danger, drugs, STD’s, having “the talk” about sex, and other topics that they need to be aware of. However, this is now more then ever a talk that you need to have with your teen. One in three teens are subjected to dating violence but are not making you aware that it’s going on. They believe that it will stop or it’s their fault it’s happening.

If you have a teen it’s time to have a talk with them about dating violence. You want to make sure that they are aware it does happen and what to do if they experience dating violence. You want to open that communication with your teen so they feel comfortable to come to you and discuss it if they are a victim of dating violence.

“I knew to talk with Jen about alcohol, drugs, sex and all those other parenting talks, but I never knew I had to teach her about dating violence,” said Drew Crecente, whose 18-year-old daughter was murdered by her ex-boyfriend. “I did not realize that it was such a pervasive issue at such a young age.”

In fact, 81 percent of parents either do not believe that TDV is a problem – or do not know if it is a problem or not.

In an effort to combat this epidemic, Crecente founded Jennifer Ann’s Group to increase awareness about teen dating violence, as well as provide educational information to help teens, tweens, and young adults identify and avoid abusive relationships through free educational video games.

“Parents have a largely underrated influence in preventing TDV, and it begins with a sit-down conversation, but knowing what to say and how to say it is also important,” says Crecente.

1.Encourage open, honest, and thoughtful reflection. Talk openly with your teen about healthy relationships. Allow them to articulate his or her values and expectations for healthy relationships. Rather than dismissing ideas as wrong, encourage debate, which helps young people come to his or her own understanding.

2.Be sensitive and firm. Parenting a teen is not an easy task, especially when it comes to helping him or her navigate their way through relationships. To be effective, you will need to find the balance between being sensitive and firm. Try to adapt to the changes faced by your child. Be willing to talk openly and respect differences of opinion. Realize that the decisions you make will sometimes be unpopular with your teen – that’s okay.

3.Understand teen development. Adolescence is all about experimentation. From mood swings to risk taking, “normal teenage behavior” can appear anything-but-normal. New research, however, reveals that brain development during these formative years play a significant role in young teen’s personality and actions. Knowing what’s “normal” is critical to helping you better understand and guide young people.

4.Understand the pressure and the risk teen’s face. Preteens and young teens face new and increasing pressures about sex, substance abuse and dating. Time and time again, young teens express their desire to have parents/role models take the time to listen to them and help them think through the situations they face – be that person!

5.Take a clear stand. Make sure young teen knows how you feel about disrespect, use of abusive or inappropriate language, controlling behavior or any forms of violence.

6.Make the most of “teachable moments”. Use video games, TV episodes, movies, music lyrics, news, community events or the experiences of friends to discuss healthy and unhealthy relationships.

7.Discuss how to be an ‘upstander’. Teach teens how to stand-up for friends when he or she observes unhealthy treatment of his or her peers.

8.Accentuate the positive. Conversations about relationships do not need to focus solely on risky behavior or negative consequences. Conversations should also address factors that promote healthy adolescent development and relationships.

9.Be an active participant in your young teen’s life. Explore ways to know more about your teen’s friends and interests. Find activities you can do together.

10.Be prepared to make mistakes. You will make mistakes. Accept that you will make mistakes, but continue to help teens make responsible choices while trying to maintain that delicate balance of being sensitive, yet firm.

DirtyBird Energy Sensitive Multipack Soap Review

Dirty Bird bar soap

I received the DirtyBird Energy Sensitive Multipack Soap to review with our family. I have to say there is a great variety of soaps that are perfect for the whole family. Since several of our family have sensitive skin, we couldn’t wait to try the soaps.

The DirtyBird Energy Sensitive Multipack Soap comes with 6 bars of soap in a great reusable container that you can also use to travel with you. The Multipack comes with 2 Recovery, 2 Relax, 1 Original, and 2 Replenish bars of soap. The Replenish bar of soap is unscented, the Relax bar is Lavender scented, the Original is Peppermint scented, and the Recovery bar is Eucalyptus scented. The bars are 5.5 oz bars are a great size and easy to handle when your using them in the bath or shower.

I tried the Relax bar as I had just been feeling a little overwhelmed lately with everything on my schedule and also from us being sick so much this winter. So I could really use something relaxing to help the tension go away. So I grabbed everything and headed in to see how it would work. Now, I only have time for a shower, because as many of you know when you have kids and grandkids they are going to go and locate you and bug you the whole time. So I told everyone that they were not to knock on the door, try to get into the bathroom, or anything else till I reappeared. I went on my Merry way and of course I got as far as in the bathroom and one of the kids needed to use it. OY! However, at least it was before I was trying to get relaxed.

dirty bird replenish

I got into the shower and I could just smell the lavender scent it was just like “Ahhhhh!” So I got into the shower and when the hot water hit the soap it lathered up really well and it smelled even more like Lavender in the bathroom. I have to say that I just loved the the way that the soap felt on my skin as well. It was a very silky on my skin, I also had very dry skin from this winter and it was making the dry skin feel better as well. I was actually starting to relax and I could feel even some of the stress leaving my shoulders where it sets up camp and just stays. I felt so much more relaxed and ready to take on my schedule and my family after my relaxing shower. It really was heavenly, I have been using the relax for several days now and it really just makes me so much more relaxed and ready to take on everything that comes my way.

My son who has EDS, sensitive skin and allergies to a lot of soaps used the Replenish bar. It has no scent, a nice 5.5 oz bar, and he was excited to try the soap. Since the Relax soap bar worked for me and I had have allergies to soaps as well. So he was going to go try it, so he got all of his items ready for the shower and since he has the allergies we watch his skin close after he showers to ensure he doesn’t get hives. So he went in took his shower and when he came out of the bathroom I got his report on the Replenish. He said that he loved the way it lathered up, the way his skin felt so soft after his shower and it didn’t feel tight like it normally does. He really liked the way his skin felt, the way it felt like it was moisturized, he really liked it and has been using it ever since. I think that the Replenish would be great for a Mommy to be as it hydrates the skin so well. We all know that our bodies go through changes while we are pregnant so it would be great for Mom’s to use as well.

My son also tried the Recover soap bar, he gets a lot of bumps and bruises due to his EDS so we tried the soap bar as well. He has only tried it once so far but he just loved the Eucalyptus scent of the soap. He told me that it lathered well, that it felt really nice on his skin when he used it, that it didn’t dry his skin. He is going to keep using it with the Replenish bar soap and rotating the bars. We haven’t used it long enough to know if it helps to encourage bruises, Inflamation and bumps to heal quicker. I will however, update this review once we know how it works with them.

Freezer Meals to make with leftover Ham #FreezerMeals #HamMeals #HamRecipes #Easter

ham

There are a lot of great recipes that you can make and freeze with leftover Ham from Easter. So I wanted to share some of my favorites with you.

Ham & Cheese Homemade Hot Pockets

Pizza Dough
1-2 cups chopped ham
slices of American Cheese
bag of Frozen Broccoli

Take the dough roll it out to a small circle, add some ham pieces, slice of cheese and a couple pieces of Broccoli. Then fold in half and take a fork and close the edges on both sides. Be sure not to over stuff or they will leak. Bake at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes on a greased cookie sheet. Let them cool and put them in Sandwich bags to freeze individually. Then just take one out and heat them in the Microwave till hot and serve.

Here are some more recipes that you can use as well:

Ham & Scalloped Potatoes

6 potatoes
1 can of Cream of Mushroom Soup
1 cup of Ham
1/2 cup of Milk

Clean and slice the Potatoes, You can leave the skin on or remove it, Then in a freezer bag, just throw the potatoes in and Ham, then mix in the Cream of Mushroom Soup. (Do not add the Milk to it till you cook the dinner.

Ham and Macaroni and Cheese (from the oamc digest)

8 oz. elbow macaroni
1 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
3 cups shredded cheese
2 cups cubed ham
2 cups thin white suace (recipe follows)

Heat oven to 375 degrees. Cook macaroni and drain. Place half of the macaroni in and 2 qt casserole dish. Sprinkle with half the cheese. Add all of ham. Top with remaining macaroni and cheese. Pour white sauce over casserole. Cover and bake for 30 minutes.

THIN WHITE SAUCE (for macaroni and cheese)
1 Tbsp. margarine
1 Tbsp. flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
1 cup milk

Melt butter. Blend in flour, salt and pepper. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until mixture is smooth and bubbly. Remove from heat. Stir in milk. Heat to boiling, stirring constantly. Boil and stir 1 minute. Use as directed in recipe for macaroni and cheese.

Notes from a tired oamc cook (don’t know who this was!): I was tired and worn out at this point. I decided that the Ham and Macaroni and cheese would have to be a SAR (Some Assembly Required) meal. I placed three cups of cheese in a qt. size freezer — then I placed 2 cup bag another qt size freezer bag. I placed a rubber band around these and froze them. At meal time – I will use this recipe. I will stir in the ham before baking.

The following recipes are from “Dinner’s Ready” by Andrew Schloss and Ken Bookman, a “chain cooking” cookbook, where you make completely different meals out of leftovers from previous meals. These look good. Where there is a leftover used, I posted that recipe too, in case you wanted to do it their way or adapt these recipes.

Here are some more great recipes:

* Delicious Ham & Potato Soup

* Ham & Cheese Ziti

* Cheez Ham & Potato Bake

* Ham & Bean Soup
