Are We Citibabes? A Special Offer from Square Spot Lets You Find Out

What was I thinking signing up for a trial class at 9:30am on a Monday morning (a dreary, rainy one no less) down in Soho?

Let’s just say this wasn’t one of my more brilliant plans. A $23 cab ride later we arrived at our destination–Citibabes–but we were already more than 10 minutes late for Citisongs and to top it off, we had to wait what felt like an eternity for the elevator to the third floor.

So instead of trying Citisongs, we enjoyed the open play gym again for one last time as part of our three day trial that Square Spot is offering its members.

Don’t get me wrong. I do not mean to have a complaining tone. It was a great offer for a fabulous facility which i have wanted to check out for quite some time.

Having been to Citibabes, I can say that I am extremely impressed with the facility and if I lived closer, I would become a member. (That’s exactly how I feel about Appleseeds too)

Team Gutterman had so much fun exploring the gyms on Saturday afternoon. Since it was a gorgeous day, we pretty much had the whole place to ourselves!

Here are some of my fav shots that I took:

Ian is rockin’ a Blume shirt. When one thinks of fun, flirty fashion – a gas station attendant’s emblem is probably the last thing on your mind. However, authentic workmen’s patches from the family uniform company were Stacey Blume’s inspiration that launched her eponymous label- Blume. First comes love; then comes marriage; then comes Blume Baby stylin’ in the carriage! It is the perfect way to introduce your new baby to the world. No one will have to ask what the little one’s name is because Blume Baby helps you spell it out with customized onesies, bibs, hats, and burp cloths.Blume embodies comfortable fun for women, men, children, and dogs. The line is sure to begin each morning (or evening) with a smile. Blume’s innovative and unique styles have been a big hit with celebrities (and their kids!) such as Angelina Jolie, Victoria and David Beckham, Mariska Hargitay, Jennifer Lopez, Julia Roberts, Kelly Ripa, The Kardashians, Tori Spelling, Gwen Stefani, Britney Spears, Jessica Simpson, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Brooke Shields and Ben Affleck. Blume fashions can be found in fine stores nationwide like Barneys NY, in the United Kingdom, Canada, Japan and on

To Procreate or Not? That Is The Question…..

Ernie, You’re the One

When I was growing up (back in the day), there were very few options in children’s television programming. You simply watched Sesame Street, Public Broadcasting Service‘s long-running children’s show

I must have adored Sesame Street the same way my son worships Yo Gabba Gabba and Olivia because I named the goldfish I won at a local fair Ernie and Bert. Not long after we brought them home, Bert met his timely demise (as most fair fish do) and was flushed down the toilet.  But Ernie defied all the odds and kept growing and growing.  I remember his tail was so long and beautiful and he kept outgrowing his tanks.  My mom said I was more hysterical when Ernie died than when my Great Uncle Bob passed away.

My son hasn’t gotten into Sesame Street and even if he ever does, Elmo gets most of the glory these days.  But I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to acknowledge Ernie’s birthday on January 28th.  I only wish Ernie could fill me in on his beauty secret because he has yet to start showing his age.

Bert and rubber ducky better have some fantastic plans in place to celebrate Ernie’s big birthday.  Even if they stay in their basement apartment at 123 Sesame Street.

Happy Birthday, Ernie!  Make it filled with your distinctive, chuckling laugh.
