Pro parenting tip: if 3 out of your 4 kids have birthdays within a few weeks of each other, combine them, and make yourself 87% less crazy! But seriously, Rivkah’s 6th, Avi’s 5th, and David’s 2nd pizza and face painting party was a success. Also, I have no idea how elementary school teachers do this every day. YOU ARE ALL SAINTS. And now I’m off to bed rest!
PS Rivkah’s @pippaandjulie x Disney dress should come in adult sizes bc I want one too
I went to Butterflake in NJ today to pick up some treats for the teens of @newyorkhebrew and discovered CHURROS LAYER CAKES EXIST. Also, I just realized my feed is quickly becoming a tribute page to Mexican desserts. 🍰
PS I didn’t buy it but I plan to fantasize about it for the rest of time
Today was basically insane (i live next to the post office where the latest bombs were found), but there’s good news — @thedoughnutproject partnered with @andazmayakoba.mx on some pretty adorable #DiadelosMuertos doughnuts. They’re pan de muerto flavored (think sweet orange blossom) and have a skull-shaped shortbread cookie on top. 🍪
You can buy them at @thedoughnutproject downtown from Oct 29 - Nov 4, so start saving your calories.
@andazmayakoba.mx is also giving away a 2 night stay, and all you have to do to enter is post a photo of your own Dia doughnut (or regram mine, that’s cool), and include the tags #andazmayakoba and #doughnutproject.
Or, if you just want some doughnuts, tag a few friends in the comments and I’ll invite you over for some freebies. 🍩
Got 3 out of 4 in a pic without pizza all over their faces, ate a giant salad, and didn’t forget my keys, so I’m feeling pretty good about life 🤷🏻♀️💕 ...also, holler if you want to talk about David’s hair routine.
OMG! Did you know @nickelodeon is relaunching Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles? Better yet, there's a major #TMNTxAmazon event happening in NYC this week on Wednesday, Oct 10. Most obvious good news ever? I'm partnering with them and bringing my big kids (and the little one in my half shell), because we're all oozing with excitement over this. Can you tell? Now be honest, which turtle is your fave? I'm team Raphael. The event will be at 72 Spring St from 4-8pm and is open to the public, come join us! #ad
Staying in the city this weekend, but deeply missing these scenes from last week in our Woodstock neighborhood. Anyone else obsessed with fresh mountain air? (ps yes, when we are up there the kids are always covered in dirt. Don’t judge.)
REAL TALK: I already told you I'm pregnant, but what I didn't share was why I left my last job heading up a bridal and women's lifestyle publication. I suppose I didn't heed the warning of my peers and colleagues when they told me of their riddled pasts with this company. Unfortunately, after months of being prohibited from publishing anything that might be "too Jewish" and being told to stop complaining about it because it was inconvenient, only days after management got wind of my pregnancy, the man in charge kicked me to the curb (which wasn't what anyone might expect from a self-proclaimed "girl power" publisher). It was a shame, because I had met every expectation, over-achieved in performance reviews, hit new traffic highs for the publication in my control, and brought in never-before-seen press and celebrity acclaim for the company -- but as most women know, merit is often not enough to keep a job.
Don't worry though, friends! I'm still writing up a storm for other outlets, filming, and growing a very special creative endeavor in my womb. I'm sharing this because you may relate or see it drawn out in a more public way soon enough, and I wanted you to hear it from me first.
Here's to strong women. May we know them, may we be them, may we raise them.
I have a tiny Manhattan kitchen and it’s currently brimming with dozens of round challah loaves in anticipation of #RoshHashana. This year’s varieties include standard plain, sesame, cinnamon streusel, raisin, and my personal fave — CHOCOLATE CHIP! (Yes, that’s chocolate chip you’re looking at.) Wishing everyone out there all the sweetness, success, and health in the world for this new year! 🍎 🍯
PS be a sport and comment with something positive happening in your life right now. Your happiness = my happiness, and I’d love to share some joy with you!
As of last week, we have been married 7(!) years, which is basically nuts 🥜. In an effort to keep things fresh, we do a lot of weird stuff, like this week, we are communicating mostly in music videos... and we are competitive, obvi. Even with his limited English he may be winning this one. Anyone else on team Weird Relationship Games?
Here’s a secret: nothing on the planet — diy remedies, western medicine, or otherwise — has ever made my body feel quite as healthy as the Dead Sea. I know it’s not a miracle for everyone, but for me it definitely is. Feeling kind sick-ish today so I’m looking at pics of the last time we were there! Missing Israel 🇮🇱 .🌴Brb as I barf 🤢.
