Date Night at Farmstead Flatbread

Somehow every date night we end up spending so much time leaving instructions about the baby, prepping bottles, and laying out pjs, that we completely forget to make dinner plans! We end up in the car, driving around, asking each other over and over what we’re in the mood to eat, neither one of us decisive enough for an answer.

We passed Glens Falls and continued driving north on Route 9 while we tossed around ideas. I was about to suggest giving up on dinner and going to Martha’s for ice cream when I spotted it. We probably would’ve passed by without noticing anything out of the ordinary, but I’d read about a new restaurant in the old Sutton’s store.

Farmstead Flatbread has a reputation for good pizza, good wings, and good beer. Since that pretty much sums up our interests and hobbies as a couple, (someday I’ll tell you about our brewery-themed wedding) we knew we had to try this place.

When we first walked in, I was shocked. I’d been to breakfast at Sutton’s many times. I remember strolling at a painstakingly slow pace behind my mom in the gift shop for what felt like hours as she looked at every. single. trinket. I silently prayed if I kept quiet, I would eventually get a truffle from the bakery counter. I even saw Rachael Ray in the bathroom once.

Now I hardly believed this could be the same place! It’s open and rustic and fun with a hipster flair. Think metal chairs, lots of wood, and cafe lights. I’m pretty sure Rachael would still approve.

The Pizza

We were seated directly in front of the wood stove, which I worried would be hot and sort of awkward because the chef was cooking right next to our table. It was the opposite. I didn’t feel the heat, and watching the cooking process was one of the highlights of our dinner.

The chef even called a few kids over to get a closer look at the oven. (Not Hansel and Gretel close though, don’t worry!) He explained the process to them and answered my question about how many pizzas he loses in the oven a night, which is surprisingly not as many as I would’ve thought.

The other family-friendly perk is that the food came out in no time. The kids can order, watch it go into the oven, and see it pop out a few minutes later. Oh, and the food is sourced locally. Check the chalkboard in the dining area for the featured local ingredients.

The Beer

I’d rate myself slightly beyond novice when it comes to craft beer, but my husband is a tried and true beer geek. He took one look at the beer selection and called this his new favorite place. Later when we were sitting at the bar, I asked him to rate his top 3 craft beer bars north of exit 17, and this placed. It has a nice mix of local beer and unique beer from all around.

The Other Stuff

A few random things I loved about Farmstead Flatbread:

  1. They had live music on a Thursday night, which added to the whole vibe. 
  2. They hold something called a Bluegrass Brunch on Sundays, and that sounds phenomenal. 
  3. The back of the bar is made out of a vintage pharmacy case, which is simply awesome for us people who have a weird obsession with throwback furniture.
  4. They are on beermenus.com, which notifies you as the beer selection is updated! It’s a beer nerd thing.
  5. There were a lot of people in flannels, and flannel-wearing people always have a good time.
  6. The wings. Just trust me. Chipotle Maple.

Best Dressed Baby (on a budget!)

People constantly ask me where I shop for the baby’s clothes. I’m a little biased, but I’d have to say he is a pretty adorable little model! So…I’ll let you in on my shopping secret. You have to be willing to dig around, get a little dirty, and have the ability to schmooze. (That’s actually a word, by the way. I had to look up the spelling.)

Consignment shops. Consignment sales. Garage sales. Online garage sales. 

{Oh, and Instagram, but that’s not cheap, so I’ll save that for another post.}

That’s it! I got all my good finds digging through bins and bins of baby clothes.

Now, I was pregnant during the summer, so I had way too much time on my hands to get my little October baby’s closet prepped. Garage sales are probably the most work because they’re so hit or miss. I had plenty of misses. But, you might end up hitting the jackpot like I did when I pulled up to what I can only describe as some sort of mansion just after the sun came up on a Friday morning. (This is the BEST time to go, by the way.) There were rows of untouched bins of baby boy clothes. “Oh, he never even wore half of these!” admitted the mom, who looked like a clothing designer herself. Score!

Consignment shops and consignment sales are a little easier to navigate. You’ve got enough of a selection here to know you’ll find something in the size you need, and they usually have quality standards, so everything will be in good condition. 

Of course, load up on the Dreft and wash it all once or twice when you get home! I bought lots of different sizes and spent at least a week sorting everything into plastic bins, washing and folding neatly so it would be ready to go when baby needed it. (Boy, am I glad I did that before the baby arrived! People warned me I wouldn’t have this kind of time on my hands ever again, and they were totally right.)

This upcoming weekend is huge for consignment sales in our area. They’re bringing out the spring & summer gear just in time for the season change over. The tricky part is the competition factor. (If you’re like me, though, that’s what makes it so thrilling!) Every mama within a 30 mile radius with an interest in a bargain will be at these sales.

Sip & Canvas Mother’s Day Giveaway!

Raise your hand if you were bummed when you read that Sip & Canvas in Glens Falls would be closing!  Luckily, one of the instructors, Robin, decided to take over the business starting in May and will keep the painting (and sipping) going into the foreseeable future! 

They’ll be in the same Glens Falls location and are accepting gift cards through April before the business changes hands. To celebrate this new beginning, we’ve teamed up to give away 2 seats to a May class! Check out all the paintings offered in May, including a few family paint nights when the kids are invited too.

I admit, I’m famous for stick figures and having to label my drawings. I figured there was NO WAY my canvas painting would look anything like the picture on the calendar, especially if I was going to be drinking wine at the same time I was expected to be creating art. (On second thought, maybe that would help?)

Anyway, the instructors at Sip & Canvas are amazing. They somehow walk you through the whole experience and explain each step in a way that makes it totally do-able. The studio itself is inspiring- you’ll feel like a real artist when you take a seat in a stool in front of your own painting station. Bring a friend or two, and it’s a night to remember. Don’t worry about taking a selfie, they’ll gather your group for a photo to commemorate the evening!

Who would you bring to a night out at Sip & Canvas? Where would you go for dinner before your painting sesh? Comment below for extra entries in the giveaway. Happy Mother’s Day, ladies!

5 Reasons to be More Like a South High Marathon Dancer

If you live in our community and haven’t heard of the South High Marathon Dance…well…I’m not sure that’s possible. Just in case it’s your first time reading about this event, let me start out with a little background info.

Basically, every year for the last 39 years, local high school students worked to raise money for our community. (Not just South Glens Falls, but all the surrounding areas as well. Chances are, if you haven’t been impacted by this dance, you know someone who has, even if you don’t live in SGF.) In 2016, they raised over $760,000. Yes, that’s 3 zeros after the comma. Whatever you’re picturing when you read about 800 kids dancing for 28 hours straight, this is better.

Yes, there’s sweat. Yes, they’re tired. But this dance isn’t just about overcoming exhaustion. In fact, this isn’t something one can describe with words.

Truly, the dance is a feeling. A spirit. A movement. You have to be there to feel its heartbeat. Pictures, words, numbers- they don’t speak to the magnitude of this thing. The kids are pouring their souls into showing spirit, however difficult it may be at 3 in the morning, to show solidarity and support for local people in need. To get an idea of what I’m talking about, check out the 2017 promo video.

Let’s stop to think about the magnitude for a minute. These are teenagers. They are the embodiment of all the qualities we hope our children will show someday. They are not only role models for younger children, but also for us as adults! In a world where bullying and negativity about youth plague the news every day, here’s an example of a group of young people working tirelessly to raise money and lift the spirits of others.

I was a dancer myself, and I return to the dance each year in whatever capacity I can. Each year I tell my fifth-grade students how lucky they are to have the opportunity to participate in this event when they get to high school. I talk to them about how we can carry the feeling of community into our everyday lives. How can we be more like the dancers? What are they teaching us about how to move forward after this event? Adults and kids alike can learn from the dancers. Here are 5 ways to be more like a marathon dancer:

1. Give everyone a hug or a high five.

When you arrive at the dance, you’ll notice a lot of hugging and high-fiving. Tons of smiles are being thrown around, and you’ll probably hear some random cheering in the hallways. If you look really closely at what’s happening, you realize what they’re doing is spreading the spirit…with everyone. The kids genuinely want everyone at the dance- visitors, other dancers, recipients, to feel good.

They have a heightened awareness that their actions are contagious, and they choose to spread kindness and love.

We could mimic this in our own lives! When you’re feeling good, smile at someone. When you think of a compliment, say it out loud. You never know what someone else is going through. You never know what one small gesture could mean.

2. Just keep dancing! (Even when times are tough.)

Remember your last all-nighter? Well, these kids stay up from when they start the school day Friday morning at 8 until Saturday at 11pm when they finally arrive home and collapse on the bed. They’re also moving nearly the entire time from when the dance starts Friday evening until when it stops Saturday night.

As a dancer, the worst time for me wasn’t during the night. I still had adrenaline running through my veins during the night. For me, the most difficult part was Saturday, late morning. The rush from the excitement of being at the dance had worn off, my legs had gone numb, and I couldn’t quite muster that SHMD spirit. 

Every dancer probably has some negative thoughts and wonders how they’ll keep going, but somehow they do. Maybe they catch a glance of a recipient, or maybe they see a younger student watching them, dreaming about someday when they’ll get the chance to dance. Somehow they summon the strength to push on through that rough patch, and don’t we all need to do this at one time or another? We can learn from their determination.

3. Work, work, work.

The kids don’t start working on Friday night of the dance. Their efforts begin months, sometimes the entire year, before the dance begins. Students collect bottles, make phone calls, save coins, plan fundraising events, sell baked goods, etc. Whatever they can think of to contribute to the dance, they do it. No one has to remind them. They are a group of motivated youth putting in the time and effort to benefit someone else. 

I happen to absolutely love my job, but there are days when even I wish I could hit the snooze button. (Though my newborn doesn’t always let me do that!) Next time you’re tempted to grumble about extra work, think like a marathoner. You’ve got to keep working, even when the goal is long term. Keep working even when there’s not going to be any gratification today. These little steps and small contributions on the days when you aren’t in the mood are the ones that make a difference in the end.

4. Put others first.

The dancers have one main motivation for all this hard work and dedication: The recipients. They know to smile and say hello to anyone in a yellow shirt because that person has been selected as a person in need. But beyond treating the recipients with respect, the students treat the visitors to the dance, the alumni, and each other with respect. There’s a feeling that we’re all on the same team, and of course, we are.

Every day I urge you to consider what you might have in common with those around you. Smile at one another, open the door for someone, encourage someone, spread a positive vibe. We all need to feel supported and welcomed, and we can use these small gestures to help others feel the same.

5. Have a passion.

The first 4 reasons to be more like a dancer are driven by the passion these kids have for working toward a common goal. If we carry that same passion to use to push us toward our goals in life and toward helping others, the world will be more like SHMD.

So dancers, kids, adults- let’s remember the spirit of this dance, the way it makes all of us feel, and let’s carry that into our community every day. Let’s remember to always be considerate of one another, knowing at any time we could be the ones in need of support. 

To support the dance, please visit www.shmd.org to donate.

If you can’t visit the dance, tune in to the site to see it streaming live March 3rd and 4th. Here’s the schedule of events. The best time for kids to watch the dance is during the costume parties, and of course you won’t want to miss the ending when the recipients speak and the grand total is announced.

Amazon Prime Valentines (That make you look like a total Pinterest Mom)

Remember Valentine’s Day as a kid? Your mom probably sent you to school with 24 character valentines in that little cardboard box. You’d write a name on each one, fold it in half on the perforated line, and stick it closed with the heart stickers included. If you were really lucky, your mom would splurge for the ones with a lollipop, and all your classmates would get super pumped when you put a heavy valentine in the handmade mailbox.

Nowadays, the stakes are higher. You see one of your friends posting on Facebook about the valentines she’s starting to craft 2 weeks beforehand. It involves baking, glitter, a Cricut machine, and a full page photo cutout of her kid holding said baked good. You look at the calendar. CRAP. It’s February 10th. You start to tell the kids to get ready to head out to the store when it hits you. AMAZON PRIME. You can stay in your PJs AND still craft a valentine like one of those Pinterest moms!

I realize using Amazon Prime isn’t exactly as great as supporting local small businesses, but sometimes we have to allow for a little two-day shipping in our lives. And…I do get a little commission from Amazon if you use my links, so I guess you could say part of your purchase goes to support a local family. Not to worry. I have another post planned with more local valentine ideas for those of you who would like to step up the Vday game and are also willing to leave the house. 

Each of these Valentines have only two steps:

Step One: Click BUY IT NOW.

Step Two: Click PRINT.

Before we start, here are some extras you might need to add to your Amazon cart to jazz up any of these valentines. The Washi tape is the best because you can simply stick the gift to the printed card, and it’s done!

 

I’ve got my eyes on you!

You know every kid is going to be walking around the classroom with these on after these fun valentines are handed out. It’ll be the perfect photo op! Simply buy, print, and assemble. Sadly, the heart shape won’t ship in 2 days, but the 80s style are just as fun!

Free printable card here!

I hope your Valentine’s Day packs a punch!

Who doesn’t love the ol’ punch balloon? Forget the candy! If I was a kid, this would be my favorite valentine. Who am I kidding? This would be my favorite as an adult too. It’s very therapeutic.

Buy balloons here and they’ll be at your doorstep in two days. You may want some clear party bags as well.

Print the adorable card here.

I’m wild about you!

Remember tearing through those paper Valentines looking for the best stuff that came with them? Might as well give the kids something they’ll save! The flinging lizards would be a sure hit. By the way, I don’t think these are only boy valentines. Girls like stretchy creatures too!

Print the Valentines here- 3 styles to choose from!

Hope you have a colorful Valentine’s Day!

This could be used with crayons, highlighters, gel pens, whatever! You could tie up a few with twine or put the whole thing in a bag and top with this card. Here’s the printable!

 

I’m crazy for you, Valentine!

Crazy straws are the BEST. Here’s your printable from Ginger Snap Crafts.

You’re the balm!

The girls will go crazy for this one or this one! It’s cute and useful, especially in February in upstate, NY. If you get the tube chapstick, stick it onto the printable with Washi tape!

Hope your Valentine’s Day is a ball!

Trust me, the teacher will love you for this one. ūüėČ Print the topper here.

Simple and meaningful tradition

My mom is so thoughtful. She used to wrap up a little something for me to open the morning of Valentine’s Day. It was usually a cute pair of pjs with hearts all over, and I always loved that tradition! As I was on the hunt for Amazon Prime valentines, I got sidetracked looking at a few cute traditions for Vday and thought I’d share! Isn’t this SO sweet? 

I know. I totally have to do this. Here. Add the supplies to your cart while you’re at it:

 

Hope this helps save you a few bucks, a trip to the store, and also scores you points with the little ones. Have any other ideas for quick and easy Prime valentines? Send ’em our way! 

Easy Valentine Ideas Guys Will Love

I admit, I was much more creative with gifts for the hubby in past years. Now I’m busy planning the baby’s outfit and photoshoot for Valentine’s Day, and I need something quick to let him know he still has a spot in my heart even though I’m pretty obsessed with the newest little Valentine in my life.

Here are three ways to win your guy’s heart this Valentine’s Day: 1. Beer. 2. Food. 3. Socks. (How do they get holes in those things SO quickly?) And the best part is…you can find each of these things locally, which means you can show some love for our community at the same time!

Up first, BEER.

We are beer connoisseurs in this house, so I know I can never go wrong if I pick up a good brew like this one from Argyle Brewing Co. (And they were super sweet when we showed up with a baby in tow.) We have plenty of options for good beer locally, and this crafty (pun intended) Valentine couldn’t get any easier to make! 

Print these beer-themed Valentines and stick them to your beer bottle or growler. You could print with a home printer and use tape or a glue stick to attach them over the existing label, or if you want to get really fancy, print them on actual labels to stick on the bottle. 

{Like the shelf in the background? Shout out to Adirondack Upcycled for that beauty.}

Next, FOOD.

I love this idea for giving him a couple of big ol’ muffins! I’m thinking Rockhill Bakehouse might have the perfect, giant muffins for your hunny if you’re not into baking. 

Here’s a similar printable for your muffin.

Or, you could order 6 specialty cupcakes and chocolate-covered strawberries from Baked by Jordan. She is running a Valentine’s Day special, so place your order now. ($25 for 6 of each) What a treat! 

6 Cupcakes & 6 Chocolate Covered Strawberries from Baked by Jordan!

Here’s a printable for the cupcakes!

And last, SOCKS. 

Because what guy doesn’t need socks? Mine wears his down as soon as he gets them. Stop by Fountain Square Outfitters for a quality pair, and tie them up with some twine and this adorable Valentine.

What are you and your sweetheart planning for Valentine’s Day?

5 Reasons Why I Love Glens Falls

You may have heard Glens Falls was named the best city in New York State for a successful 2017. Even though the article referred to it as Glen Falls (yeah, we’ve heard that one before), it points out GF is affordable and has been awarded a revitalization grant. Beyond that, there are so many other reasons to love this charming little city.

The beautiful historic buildings

Next time you’re waiting in traffic at the circle, instead of turning up the tunes to drown out the noise in the backseat so you can review your to-do list in your head, look around and play a game of “I Spy” with your kids. If you’re on Ridge Street, you might spy an old clock on City Hall, built in 1900. Or you could point out the beautiful brickwork on the D.H. Cowles and Co. Building. They might be interested to know the original building on this corner burned in one of the three major fires in Glens Falls. If they want to know more, plan a trip to the Chapman Museum to visit the DeLong House and learn about the history behind our city.

The Farmer’s Market and Take a Bite

Strolling around the summer market on a beautiful Saturday morning, you’ll find fresh veggies, flowers, locally-produced products, and activities for the little ones. Refill your gallon of Battenkill milk, taste a crepe from Dickinson’s Delights, and pick up some fresh flowers for your kitchen table. We don’t have to miss out on these goodies in the winter because the market is held inside Sanford Street school. Find more information here.

If you haven’t yet experienced a Take a Bite on Wednesday nights in the summer, it’s a must try! Local eateries set up booths with samples of food, dessert and drinks. Bring some cash because each sample costs a few bucks, but you’ll walk away feeling full after trying out all the local bites! The kids will love walking up and down the streets, and there’s often a band and other fun activities happening in conjunction with the food. On a nice night, the streets can be packed, but you’ll find lots of other moms navigating strollers since everything is held outdoors.

The beer

On your next date night, tour a few of the breweries and restaurants serving a variety of craft beer. Downtown GF has quite a few options now! Almost every place you stop is serving up good brews. Download the Untappd app to log your opinions about your tastings. Need a driver? Check out the Hoppy Trails Brew Bus! Here are just some of the restaurants and breweries boasting unique taps.

Crandall Library

Grab a coffee, head into the library, and find a quiet nook to read for as long as you like. Bring your toddlers to the playroom, your young ones to go on the computers or read to a therapy dog in the children’s area. Your teen will love the room where only young adults are allowed. If it’s been a while since you’ve visited the library, take another visit. If books aren’t your thing, check out the DVD selection and look through magazines. Stop by the bulletin board to read about upcoming events at the library, including the infamous book sales where you can score books for almost nothing. We’re lucky to have this community hub downtown.

Supporting Small Businesses

I could write for hours about the shops, restaurants, and activities run by local business owners. (Oh right, that’s the point of this blog!) As a small business owner in Glens Falls, I had the chance to talk to the people of our area daily, and I know they want to keep our businesses thriving. Whatever you do downtown, you can feel good knowing your money is going back to help our city.

The Coffee Shop Awards

Confession: I’m a coffee shop addict. As a teenager, my time was spent¬†lounging around a table with friends, sipping on endless refills of Joe. In¬†college, ¬†I would spend hours in a booth listening to that quiet coffee shop hum as I typed up a paper on my laptop. In adulthood,¬†I still do my best work in coffee shops. I’m not about to give up this obsession as I enter into Mommyhood! I will find a spot to park that stroller, and I’ll do whatever it takes to raise my little buddy as a coffee shop connoisseur. Each¬†shop has a different personality of its own, a different purpose, and a different reason for visiting. Hopefully these Coffee Shop Awards will help you choose your next hang out wisely.

 

Tastiest Treats: Spektor Coffee

140 Glen Street, Glens Falls

The award for the most decadent homemade goodies and rich lattes and brews goes to Spektor Coffee! If you haven’t stopped in yet, let’s see if this convinces you. For breakfast they offer french toast, something called a Bruleed Bowl (YUM!) and a banana Nutella crepe among other luxurious treats, most of which are homemade. They even have smoothies for the little ones!

Best Place for a Meetup: Spot Coffee

221 Glen Street, Glens Falls

Spot Coffee has the best location when you need a lot of space or you want a nook to call your own for a stretch of time.¬†Strollers could be fairly easily navigated here, and there are lots of different options for seating. You’ll find couches, tables, and even a side room that feels semi-private from the rest of the shop. There’s almost always an open seat. You could push a few tables together to accommodate a large group, and they have a lot to choose from on the menu for¬†both kids and adults.

Most Flavorful Brews: Cool Beans

2 S Western Ave, Glens Falls

297 Saratoga Ave, South Glens Falls

280 Quaker Rd, Queensbury

I won’t try to say Cool Beans has the best coffee because I know coffee opinions run strong. I will say Cool Beans has a way of incorporating flavor into coffee that isn’t overwhelming and doesn’t taste like it’s¬†loaded it up with a bunch of sugary syrups. They have several flavors to choose from each day, including decaf for you pregnant & breastfeeding mamas. South Glens Falls has a drive through window for Moms on the go!

Best Lunch: Rockhill Bakehouse

19 Exchange Street, Glens Falls

You might have to wait a few minutes for a seat here during peak lunch hours, but if you’re looking for a soup, salad, or sandwich, this is your place. During the off hours, you can linger a little longer and check out the selection of books to borrow, board games, and if you’re lucky someone might hop on stage and play a little tune while you’re there. Rockhill has a very special laid back, local vibe not to¬†be missed!

Downtown Date Night Scavenger Hunt

If you’re anything like us, your date night starts out something like this:

“Where do you want to go for dinner?”

“Wherever you want!”

“But what do you feel like?”

“I’m good with anything. What are you in the mood for?”

*Long pause*

Here’s a fresh idea!

What if you didn’t have to choose? With this date night idea, you’ll park your car somewhere in downtown Glens Falls and just walk around. Don’t commit to one place! Try as many spots as possible. Grab a drink and an app at one, dinner at another, dessert somewhere else, and follow it with a drink in a new place. Take a stroll down the street and peak in the windows of places that are closed. Strike up a conversation with the people around you.

Need some inspiration? Try printing out this date night scavenger hunt¬†to take along on your evening out. Photograph yourselves completing each of these tasks. We’d love to see your scavenger hunt results! Use the hashtag #downtowndatenight

Happy hunting!
