NYC Soda Girl has missed you!  I know I have been completely MIA 🙁 I usually write my posts at night, but for over a month now, my 2 year old has decided that sleeping is not for her…I’m talking about we’re all up until 2 – 4am nightly…I am a walking zombie who now gets NOTHING done – NOTHING!  Our neighbors have even lovingly started to bang on their ceiling (our floor) – as if we are not holding and soothing our girl as she cries – UGG! How do I even survive a little?….

Funky Shredz Headband Giveaway!

I’ve mentioned it before, but we recently moved and I am now SURROUNDED by towers of boxes that need to be unpacked. It is not an easy task. With 3 kids aged 4 and under and all their classes and activities and feedings and playing and general just needing me, I’m lucky if I get through a box a day.  Every once in a while the “baby” will nap when the older two are at school (they only go for a total of 12 hours a week) and I can actually unpack a few boxes in a row if I really focus and push through. It is quite the work out.  I’ve realized 2 things that have helped me through these rare opportunities…one is obviously my Diet Coke, and the other is my favorite headband:

Clearly the soda caps print brings a smile to my face, but it’s more than that. Funky Shredz headbands are comfortable and do a great job of keeping my hair out of my face.  Beyond that when I have to quick switch gears from physically strenuous activity to running out the door to pick up the kids, I don’t have to worry about my hair because I know it’s in place AND it is stylish.  For me the soda caps print is a fun daytime headband, but Funky Shreds has TONS of other prints to choose from and many of those you could easily wear out at night.

With the holiday shopping season coming up and today being Small Business Saturday, I thought I’d mention these awesome headbands to you. Here’s some info from the owners:

“We created Funky Shredz because we saw a need for a fashionable and functional headband with a truly comfortable fit. One that could be worn for hours, before or after your workout. Our tag line is “studio to street” and we believe that every print should be beautiful, fashion forward, and easy to wear for your work out and more! We also have amazing kids prints in all latest styles!”

They are sold individually OR in a 3 pack called “Funky Trios” which you can customize.

I’ve personally gifted a trio pack to an avid gym goer who had been telling me she couldn’t find something stylish that would also hold up during her workout – it was a perfect match!  This holiday season I’ll be stuffing some lucky girl’s stocking with them!

Funky Shredz has generously offered to sponsor a NYC Soda Girl Giveaway!  One lucky reader will win a headband of their choice (up to $20 value)!

Waiter Appreciation

Best NYC soda, beverages, mom, New York City, NYC, soda, soda fountain, Uncategorized

Yesterday we had quite a morning. I woke up more tired than usual, and for some reason everything ached. I mean, even my teeth ached – what is that?! After getting the kids dressed and fed, I checked the weather, it said 70 degrees, with the “real feel” at 75 degrees. That brightened my mood.  The crazy insta-cold spell we just experienced here in NYC had gone away for a minute. I put on a springy/summery dress and thought I was all set.

The morning flew by. The kids each had a 15 minute piano lesson and then our cleaning professional (aka Our Savior) came and next thing you knew it was time for school…but oh yeah, we didn’t eat lunch yet-oops. Through all of this, I began shivering. I became convinced that it was actually still freezing outside. So during the 4 hours from when I woke up until the time we left the apartment, I started adding clothes.  When I finally realized what I looked like, there was just no time to change my outfit…so yes, my dear NYC Soda Girl Readers, I left my home in this get-up:

tired outfit

 

 

We raced towards school but first stopped for a quick lunch nearby.  I can only imagine what the staff thought of me. My crazy outfit, my face in a perma scrunch because I was so tired I could barely keep my eyes open and because of my teeth aching and my expression of “Help Me” as I looked into the hostesses eyes… The 4 of us quickly sat and ordered and I downed my first diet soda.  To be completely fair to this establishment I will not review it today, as I was too tired and stressed to really pay attention to the drink…but I do want to give a shout out to the waiter. When he passed by and I asked for my next diet soda, adding “it’s just that kind of day”…he came back with these:

double soda

THANK YOU DEAR MAN, THANK YOU! There is nothing worse than being stressed, then finishing your drink and needing another with no waiter in site…I now wouldn’t need to worry. I think that brought my stress down a bit – it’s the little things, you know? Oh- and we miraculously made it school only 2 minutes late – other students were still filing in through the door – phew!
