My Nephew Just Got an MLB Record

My nephew Matthew is a huge baseball fan. I don't just mean he loves rooting for the Yankees (smart kid), but he lives, breathes, and if he could, would eat baseball. Matthew's head is pretty much like an Encylopedia Baseballtanica. Just full of facts and figures about ball players you've never even heard of. For anyone to be that motivated and that fascinated by baseball history is just impressive, especially when that someone is a 13 year old kid from New Jersey. Matthew regularly blogs about baseball history over on his own Baseball With Matt blog. But he recently made it to the big leagues. He is now an official Pro Blogger ...

We’re Getting a Red Robin! Yummmmmmmmmm!

So Allie texted me this photo earlier today. (Can you "text" a photo? What's the proper verbage here? Anyone?) She was out shopping at the local Palisades Mall (a.k.a. The "Ugly Mall") and saw this sign. I've only eaten at Red Robin a handful of times but I've loved it every single time. Really good burgers, and I'm particular to the French Dip, actually.

Edible Chanukah House Giveaway (Ends 12/2)

Sure we could do any of those, but they're all pretty much associated with Christians. So instead, we spin our dreidels, stuff our faces with potato latkes (mmmmm), and light about a zillion candles. But you can cross one of those off my holiday wish list now that I've found a Vanilla Cookie Chanukah House from Manischewitz! The company sent me a sample of the product to try out and ...

Diary of a Wimpy Kid Book Giveaway (Ends 12/10)

If you're a parent, chances are you've heard of the Diary of a Wimpy Kid book series from Jeff Kinney. There've been seven books in the series so far, along with a handful of live-action movies. The series tells the story of Greg Heffley, who's just an average kid trying to make his way through middle school, while dealing with his older brother Roderick and younger brother Manny. The series is written in a first-person style, accompanied by loads of hysterical doodles/comic strips that tie in directly with the story. I recently had a chance to promote the latest book in the series, Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Third Wheel ...
