Trying New Things Last week was Mother's Day.  I am not a mother, and Pedro certainly isn't a mother, but we decided to go out to eat anyways. What we found, of course, were over-crowded restaurants. We were hungry, so we decided to go into Downtown Hollywood. I don't think Pedro had a specific idea of where he wanted to eat, but I knew he was getting hungry. We parked the Jeep on a side street, and started walking. What we found were lots [ + ]

Gearing Up for Summer Hi. Pedro and I are so excited that summer is here. I know what you are thinking: "You two live in South Florida. EVERY day is summer". To a degree, you are correct but there is more. In the summer months, our routine changes. We work out a bit earlier, and we make sure to get to the beach for at least an hour or two on the weekends. To say the least, we really take advantage of our surroundings. Recently, I became a [ + ]

It’s a New Car!

It's a New Car! Well, after years of owning multiple sports cars, we have transitioned into the realm of Jeeps. Those of you who know Pedro may be surprised, but he learned over the past year or so that sports cars just like to go fast, and fender benders are very costly in a sports car. Our Wrangler purchase is one of the smartest moves we could have made. Not only does it have increased visibility, but it can't go too fast, and it is very [ + ]

CPR/AED Certification

CPR/AED Certification Recently, we attended our CPR/AED certification class. We have to say that this was the best class we have taken. The teacher, Jackie, was professional. She spoke to us on a level that everyone could understand, and rather than barrage us with a bunch of notes, the majority of the time, we practiced technique. For us, this was far more beneficial than certifications of the past, and we will be sure to go back to Jackie [ + ]

Another Year Gone By

Another Year Gone By It is hard to believe that it has been one year since our wedding. So much has changed, and we have so much to feel thankful for. Our families are all healthy and seemingly happy, and though I lost a close friend and client (RIP, Bob T), I gained so much from him when he was alive that I consider myself blessed and fortunate. It is also Pedro's birthday this month, and for a man of 51 years of age he has nothing to compl [ + ]

Summertime Funnertime I already know what you are thinking: "Shereen? Funnertime is not a word". I know, I know. However, it SHOULD be. If you can forgive my grammatical liberties, read on. :) This time of year is so special for Pedro and I for so many reasons. First, South Florida takes a breather as far as traffic and volume of people are concerned. Don't get me wrong, we always look forward to the influx of Northerners. Conversely, it is [ + ]

Bathroom Remodeling Blues What have we been up to.....Well, we decided that we needed to finally remodel the bathroom. It seemed like an easy concept, so we trotted off to a store, picked out all of the things we wanted, and set a delivery date. It's that easy, right? HA! Not so much! For starters, there are permits to pull. What do we know? We haven't renovated a bathroom before. This means we need to hire people to do the work. Another se [ + ]

Winter through Spring Holiday Time

Winter Through Spring Holiday Time This is one of my favorite times of year for a very simple reason: I love to decorate my house according to the holidays. I went from Christmas and Hanukkah to Valentine's Day to Saint Patrick's Day, and it will end, sadly, with Easter and Passover. OK. I suppose I could decorate for Cinco De Mayo, Bastille Day, July 4th, and a slew of other Hallmark days, but I find that ending after Easter leaves me some [ + ]
