Q & A (and Odds and Ends)

So...about home decor Wednesday.  There was a good reason for missing it this week, I promise;)

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? 


  1. always fun to keep up with you!

  2. Happy happy birthday Keshet-hope you have a wonderful weekend!

  3. Happy birthday!!! My hubby takes me out to dinner every year for my bday, we always take our birthdays off work and do a lot of nothing.


Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a comment! I love hearing your thoughts:)
