#MyPrintly - Mom Meet Up

Sunday night I headed down to the Double Tree Suites located near Times Square for a night of printing and crafting with HP.

 Ready to print some memories
Picture I printed and frame I decorated using washi tape
 We all scream for Ice Cream
We got to decorate our own cupcakes with mickey sprinkles - ahhhh!!

Shop for HP picture printing printers here.
It was a night of printing memories with the newest HP printers. No more being too lazy to take your memory card to a pharmacy or places that have photo printing machines.
You can now print from the comfort of your home.
The options are unlimited from fun apps to edit your pictures:
HP Social Media Snapshots 
HP Cards

From sticky paper, sticker pictures or card pictures. All you need is imagination!
I'm not lying when I tell you that I printed about 50 pictures.
We were than able to decorate some frames to put our pictures in.
Whoever said you can't play with your own food -lied.
I had a lot of fun decorating my one cupcakes and creating my own sundae.
It was definitely a great way to end a weekend.

Loved being able to print memories and finally show them off on my walls.

Father's Day Gift Guide 2015

Fathers Day is just around the corner and here are a few last minute ideas :)

1- Fogless Shower Mirror from Toilet Tree: 
A fogless shower mirror - yessss. Not only is it a perfect idea for the special guy in your life but it's also a plus for you. I like using a mirror when I shower and use my face cleansing gels, and there's nothing worse than a fogged up mirror that doesn't let you see yourself properly. If you go to their website now, their entire line of fogless mirrors is Buy One Get One 50% Off and Free Shipping.
You can get one for your husband and your dad! 

2- Nature Box Subscription: 
Does your dad or husband love to eat, do they love to try new yummy healthy treats? Nature Box is a  monthly subscription box, there are three subscription options and they can cancel at any time. Why not gift them one or two (or more) of Nature Box goodies. They will receive 5 full size bags full of pure yumminess. The more months you gift the more you save. You can check them out here -

3- Gift Cards:
He's a little picky? A gift card is the way to go. Let him pick his own gift. Buy him a nice card and gift card to go along. It's also nice when you receive a gift card and buy something your heart really wants. Plus, if your dad or husband is a runner like mines are they can pay for races. Which can become expensive to a runner.

4- Saucony Guide 8: 
Your dad is a runner and he needs a good pair of shoes. Check out the new Saucony Guide 8 in Lime/Navy. Super lightweight and perfect support for those who need it. The runner in your life will run happily in these :) While looking cool!
They will also be easy to spot in these brightly lit new sneakers.

What will you be getting the special guy in you life?

Retro 4 Miler Recap

Spreading out the running gear for the next day.
Finish line selfie - done!
With my biggest supporter at the finish line.

The Retro 4 miler was a blast, I loved watching people run in old tees and dressed like the runners used to back in the 70's. The weather was good, there was no humidity which made for a nice cool run I felt strong and ran faster than usual. I shaved off 3 minutes from my last 4 mile race.
I always love 4 mile runs around central Park, just because we skip most of the killer hills - lol.
That won't be the story next week during the Oakley Mini 10k when we go around the park.
I'm ready for those hills just hope the humidity stays away.

#CMOMFrolic Friday Morning Fun

The Childrens Museum of Manhattan has a new exhibit for littles age 0-5 and it opened yesterday the 5th. It's a fun sort of hippie area for little ones to play and dance in.
There's a mouth slide where little ones can slide down a tongue! They also have to retro looking van where little ones can climb in and dream of driving away to far away places.

They also have foam pits, where the little ones can use the foam shapes and build stuff or climb in. Valentina loved climbing in and playing inside the foam pits. 

There are also a lot of interactive play areas, where the kids can press buttons and watch the lights come on. I must admit that Valentinas favorite part of Frolic is the music section. There she found maracas, mini pianos and lots of singing mom workers. We spent a good 40 minutes, singing and dancing while playing with the maracas. Video will be up on the YouTube channel.

If you are a parent in New York and have wanted to visit the CMOM now is the time, Frolic is definitely a fun new exhibit. Even the bigger siblings can have a little fun :)

Have you been to CMOM before?
