May has been a crazy month, I’ve been working a lot, blogging a lot and I finally seem to be settling into a better posting schedule for this site. I’ve posted not ONE, but TWO sponsored posts (Kids Email and Tips for Effective Project Management). I also had my first sponsored travel opportunity when hubby and I visited Bedell Cellars a couple of weeks ago.

Wow, May was crazy!

But I did have time to find a few new things I am digging this May. Here is my May Stuff I love list.

I live in a suburb of New York City. We can be in Manhattan in less than an hours train ride. We live about a 10 minute drive to the closest ocean beach. And in less than two hours, we can drive out to the North Fork of Long Island – rich with farms, marinas, and lots and lots of vineyards!

On the East End of Long Island, there are so many wineries and tasting rooms to visit. About three years ago we discovered the best tasting room out that way – Bedell Cellars. We had been longing to return, and I was super excited to recently be hosted by Bedell for an afternoon of wine tasting and a behind the scenes tour of their amazing facility.

I’m pretty reserved, and normally wouldn’t brag about being an expert in anything but one thing I can say I have down pat!

Beach Packing.

I am definitely an expert in getting a family ready for the beach and on to the sand!

Little man has a March birthday, and I started taking him to the beach his very first summer. When he was 5 months old, we spent a week at the Outer Banks with #thegirlfriends. We are so lucky to travel often to Atlantic City, NJ and Naples, FL; and to have spent last August in Hawaii. But we are even luckier that we live a 10-minute drive from an Atlantic Ocean beach!

We love hitting the beach as a family, and here are our MUST-HAVES for any family beach trip!

Little man is about to finish second grade. Word on the street is that third grade is when things start to get real. There is a big jump for the kids in terms of academics, standardized testing and homework. I’ve also heard that third grade is when it is common for kids to start communicating electronically. Sending emails and texts, using iMessenger, stuff like that.

I’m not sure I’m ready for all of this!

My kids currently have wi-fi connected iPads, which they use to play games, watch pre-downloaded movies, and to watch videos on YouTube. We do not allow games that offer the option to play against real people, or communicate with others out in cyberspace. We carefully monitor what they watch on YouTube.

Let’s face it, a long flight with a young one is not anyone’s favorite part of a trip. A means to an end, yes, but I know that my kids are a total crapshoot when it comes to enjoying a long flight. Sometimes they will hunker down with their headphones, giving you hours to relax. But when the boredom (or hunger) sets in, it is best to be prepared!

Momma To Go would like to thank Steelray Project Viewer for sponsoring this post! I love, love, love their tips for managing effectively! This post is essential for anyone from CEOs to those of us leading the PTA! Plus, blogging is so collaborative, I know most of us bloggers can apply these tips!

 

Project Managers need to have a specific set of skills to be successful, using a software like Steelray Project Viewer is key to successfully managing projects, budgets, and timelines.

A project manager is the point person within a company who handles the intricate details of a particular job. Typically they oversee large-scale projects with a diverse task force, a sizeable budget, the constraints of quick timelines, and compounding assignments. Since project managers juggle so many things at one time, they need to nimble, organized, and approachable.

 

Here are six tips to be successful as a project manager:

There are so many things to love about Italy. The coffee, the food, the historic sights… but one of my favorites, is the wine! I love Prosecco, a cold white wine on the piazza, or a deep red with a big bowl of pasta. Yes, only in Italy can I tolerate … no enjoy, red wine.

So when our awesome agents at Exclusively Italy arranged for us a vineyard tour and wine tasting, I knew this was going to be a highlight of our trip!
