Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs

Friday night, we participated in our town library's Second Annual Edible Book Celebration. We won three awards: Best Pre-K to 2nd Grade, Most Clever, and Coolest Mom. Well, that third one wasn't an official category, but we still won it.
I'd been talking to my mom about this contest ever since last summer when Katelyn and I attended the event (but didn't make a cake for it). I'd told my mom we had to enter this year, and go big. So she came out to help. Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs is one of Katelyn's favorite books, and I liked the challenge of making the food look like it was raining from the clouds. 

Feature Story in (201) Health

The below story appeared in the 2013 Edition of (201) Health (from the publishers of (201) Magazine.) The photographs were taken by Magique Studios. I plan to write something for HuffPost so won't delve into it here, but in short: the story was a final nod to my hat collection, which helped me to feel better on the outside while I was feeling so bad on the inside.

First Descents: Aggregate Ironman Challenge - 2.4 Mile Open Water Swim Recap

This past Saturday morning, the rain showers stopped an hour earlier than predicted, and the sun shone on the athletes of the Wyckoff YMCA Lap the Lake Open Water Swim. I participated in the 2.4 mile event-- the swim distance in an Ironman. Ryan and Katelyn came to cheer me on, and my friend, Alyson kindly lent me a wetsuit. (She's a veteran triathlete and is planning to join our Aggregate Ironman Team!)
