Biggest Baby Shower!

Some of our favorite events of the year are Big City Moms Biggest Baby Showers. They are held all over the country and they are fantastic. Last night was the Biggest Baby Shower in NYC. These events are a great way for companies and brands to showcase their products to media, bloggers, celebs and, most importantly, expectant parents. We actually launched Sage Spoonfuls at the Biggest Baby Shower event NYC in November, 2011.

We love getting to see so many of our friends and partners at these events. This is me with Gigi Lee Chang, who is the CEO of Healthy Child Healthy World.  She is awesome and we are huge fans of the organization.

Alex is the best partner and pitchman I could have ever hoped for. I'm truly blessed to have a husband who believes in and supports my vision. It's so much fun for the two of us to see how Sage Spoonfuls has grown. It's gone from a start up to one of the most trusted names in baby food products in only 2 short years. This is something I am truly grateful for and extremely proud of.

We love speaking to moms who used Sage Spoonfuls for their first babies and look forward to using it for their second. Really rewarding to hear such amazing feedback!

I always love speaking on the panel about nutrition and the importance of homemade baby food. Last night's panel was moderated by the very fun Alicia Ybarbo and Mary Ann Zoellner, who are Today's Moms and the authors of the popular book Sh*tty Mom. We had so much fun! I was joined on the panel by Rachel Blumenthal of Cricket's Circle, Dr. Jennifer Trachtenberg and Farnoosh Torabi.

One of the highlights of the event was meeting and chatting with Nicole Polizzi aka Snooki. She was absolutely lovely and super nice. She was at the event signing copies of her new book Baby Bumps. We talked about baby food, boobs and books!

Last night's event was extra special - it was Big City Moms 10th Anniversary. We couldn't be happier for our good friends Risa and Leslie. They are amazing women and deserve every bit of the amazing success they have with Big City Moms!

Can't wait for the next event!

A Sunny Easter At Home

I've never been so happy to see Spring as I am this year. Being in NY, we had the longest, coldest and most brutal winter I can ever remember. We all felt like bears in hibernation. Now that Spring has officially sprung and we've been flush with sunny days, we've thrown open the windows and doors and are enjoying every minute of fresh air that we can get. I can already sense a new level of happiness and joy in the kids that only long days playing outside can bring.

We were especially excited about Easter this year. It was our first Easter in our new house and we were hosting a big group of family and lifelong friends and lots of kids. We spent Saturday decorating, dying eggs and getting ready for the big day. The kids had so much fun. They love making crafts and had the best time sitting at the kitchen table together decorating Easter egg pictures to put up all over the kitchen.


I love holidays, entertaining and just going all out. Childhood goes by in a flash and I want to make as much magic for the kids as I can. We filled their baskets with books, puzzles, crafts, fun stuff for outside and, of course, Peeps and chocolate. As intense as I am about eating healthy, clean and organic, there are some days that the kids just need a free pass - Easter is definitely one of those days. They had gummy worms for breakfast and enjoyed every minute of it!



The Easter egg hunt was awesome. We had 16 kids flying all over the backyard trying to grab every egg they saw. I have to say, they were great. The older kids even left a few eggs on the ground so the littlest bunnies could have some too. We were highly impressed with their restraint.

We had a little backyard Indy 500 going on.

The look on Mason's face sums up the day - happy, carefree and outside. I couldn't have wished for a more perfect Easter. I hope you all had a warm and wonderful day with family and friends too.
