Since this week is packed to the gills, my hubby surprised me by whisking me off to a birthday dinner Tuesday night! We headed to Nobo in Teaneck, and enjoyed a super amazing gourmet meal, all completely kosher. I love New York:)
Then, we spent time planning for a fun BBQ with my officemates last night:
I'm so lucky to work with people that I really, really like. I know it's not that way for everyone, and I really appreciate it!
I want to pop in today to answer some recent questions!
First, a few of you asked about modest bathing suit. This has been the BEST solution for me, since I don't wear normal bathing suits for religious reasons. With one of these bad boys, I can go to water parks, the beach, pools, etc and join in the fun!
I purchased my swimsuit from Hydrochic, which has a wide variety of styles/lengths to choose from (not a paid endorsement, just a happy customer;)) This is the one I have, in addition to a maternity suit.
I've also gotten a few questions about Shabbos:
You may have answered this before, but do you also rush like crazy to clean your house on Friday?
The answer to that is yes, although "clean" is a relative term. Ha! I do more in-depth cleaning at other times, but I do some basic cleaning and a lot of tidying so that we can begin Shabbos with a comfortable, clean home.
Do you keep several sets of dishes?
I do! I have a dairy set of dishes, a meat set, and both dairy and meat sets of pots and pans. I have two of some frequently used appliances, like the blender. My dishwasher is meat only (although one day I may have to add another one!)
Thanks for popping in! Today I'm off to enjoy some birthday extravaganzas?
What's YOUR ideal birthday activity?
