Heidi Klum's Pink Stroller: Swanky or not?

Hmmm.  I think it fits the “swanky” category since it is custom ordered from Teutonia and a trendy cotton candy pink.  This stroller is from Teutonia’s  t-300 series and the pricetag for the chassis alone is over $500.  Want it for less? Well the quality won’t be nearly as good  – especially if you are … Read more

Allison Sweeney on her weight, the Biggest Loser & motherhood

The Biggest Loser host, longtime star of Days of Our Lives, author of an upcoming book, and mom to Ben, 4, and Megan, 1—Alison Sweeney has a breathtaking array of accomplishments. Sweeney sits down with Working Mother magazine this May for a heart-to-heart on balancing home and demanding career; her sunny outlook on life; how she met her husband, California Highway Patrol investigator Dave Sanov; the best surprise on becoming a mom and lessons she’s learned along the way.

On going from struggling with her weight to getting fit and healthy:
“From the time I was 12 I was overweight, and as a teen I definitely struggled with my weight. I tried very extreme diets, like the papaya diet. It was about me feeling insecure and lacking confidence. Overcoming that was a long process.

In Hollywood anything goes.  Little boys wear pink and it is trendy & cool.  Kourtney Kardashian has Mason dressed in these Haiden Surf boardies with pink accents. I love these surf shorts but wonder if Kyle will get away with it in the suburbs. What do you think?

Pregnancy Truths

  • “I got pregnant, and I was like, ‘Oh, God, it worked! Oh, no!’ Chris [Ivery, her husband] and I were super happy, then I got terrified! Will I know how to do everything right?

Jennie Garth Loves Veggies & Hidden Valley Ranch

Classy Mommy was invited to see Jennie Garth in New York City last week as she was promoting a fabulous effort from Hidden Valley Salad Dressings and the Love Your Veggies campaign to get kids to eat their veggies. I wish I could have gone in person. I could use some expert help in the veggie department.

Sigh. I wish I could get my kids to eat their veggies. Truly, it is torture in our house.  (And yes, I’ve tried the dip it in salad dressing trick – and it doesn’t work yet at our house. I think I might resort to allowing the kids to dip them in Ketchup or even honey if that would work!)  Really, the only veggies I can get my 4 yr old daughter to consume are canned green beans. Texture of fresh veggies seems to be a deal breaker in our house.
