Melt Mobile Stamford, CT Review

I recently had a chance to check out Melt Mobile. I really enjoyed my Caprice Grilled Cheese Sandwich. My Husband had an old fashioned Grilled Cheese. The bread was perfectly grilled, the cheese was melted to perfection (maybe even mixed with two different kinds, not sure), and the containers were just the right size for our sandwiches.

As with any grilled cheese sandwich there was a little grease, but hardly the amount I had expected. The Ladies aka the owners were such nice friendly women. I really enjoy my experience and I recommend you check it out. My only gripe are the hours. They are open from Tuesday through Friday 11:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. I would love to see them open on the weekends, and in a different location. The parking for Veterans Park is not great, but it is worth the trip. I hear they are on Bedford Street once in awhile which is much better in terms of parking. They accept cash or charge which is very convenient!

So this is the famous Melt Mobile Truck. How cute huh?

Here is a photo of the owners. Are these Ladies on a Grilled Cheese Diet? They have lost so much weight since they were on 3 Days To Open with Bobby Flay on the Food Network Show.  Maybe they can make us the Grilled Cheese Diet Sandwich! ;)

As soon as you walk up, you will spot this regular menu along with a specialty menu for items they are cooking for the week.

 I ordered the Grilled Cheese Caprice which I believe was a weekly special.

My Husband had the Original Melt aka Grilled Cheese Sandwich.

Cute packaging for their sandwiches. 

For more info, you can find these ladies on

One tip I will give you, check out their Facebook page before you head on over just in case something is wrong with their truck. You never know what might happen, and they are usually good about notifying their Facebook fans about any issues.

Growing old with the love of your life.... Disney's UP

I couldn't help but post this adorable collage.  Disney's Up is one of my favorite movies. I cried like a baby when I watched it. If you haven't seen it, I highly recommend it!

I recently married the love of my life, and this photo definitely represents how I feel. Are any of you brides or newlyweds out there feeling the same way?

Brief History of the Boy Band Era

Although the term "boy band" is mostly associated with groups from the 1990’s and onwards, other antecedents exist throughout the history of pop music.
I guess if you really think about it, boy bands have been around for many generations. Did you know that the earliest of boy band music came from the 19th century? That's right, the good old fashion A cappella Barbershop Quartets. Basically a group of males singing in a four part harmony. This was way before my time, but I am sure I would have been a screaming obsessed teenager had I been born during that era. 

Some of the early boy band genre groups were The Osmond’s, The Jackson 5, The Monkees, and The Beatles which helped create a platform for today's Boy Bands. Did you know that in a boy band, all members of the band can sing? It is a common tactic of a boy band, as opposed to having a front man take the lead while the rest play instruments. This method was effective so that no single member of the band dominates the stage. Basically a way to create a drama free atmosphere for the group. Having said that, members of the band would still fall into their own stereotypical categories for example: Donny Osmond- the cute one!

Let's see... Does anyone remember Menudo, New Edition, New Kids on the Block,  98 Degrees, All 4 one, N Sync, and Boyz II Men? New Kids on the Block were one of my favorite groups growing up! I was also obsessed with N Sync, and would sing my heart out to Boys II Men.

Did you know that the New Kids on the Block was the first commercially successful modern boy band formed in 1984? They even found international success in 1988.  

Let's not forget the awesome boy band N Sync. I am still a huge fan of JT!

My reason for this post is because recently I have been hearing a ton of buzz about a new boy band group called One Direction. I love staying current, especially in the pop culture department. . I first learned about them from a friend at work. She took her kids to see them in concert about a month ago, and now that is all they will talk about!

I have seen so many tweets, and posts on Facebook about the group as well! I have decided to let you in on a few fun facts about the group.

Fun Facts:

  • One Direction was formed on television in UK’s version of The X Factor. 
  • I kid you not… Harry has four nipples and has been is said to be linked to several cougars. Right! His curly hair is legendary though!
  • Niall doesn’t have a driver’s license, and is the only one that isn’t British. He is Irish!
  • Liam and Louis both recently bought their girlfriends cars.
  • Zayn had fish and chips for lunch on 7-17-12. Check twitter. ;)
  • Their first CD is called Up All Night, and is debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200

Are you a One Direction Fan? What fun facts do you have to share? Are you a boy ban fanatic? What was your favorite group growing up? Tell us, we want to know!

Join me on Crowdtap if you want to earn Amazon gift cards, free Old Navy Samples, free Woolite samples, and more! It is really easy to do, and a lot of fun.

Ok back to Woolite! So I tried Woolite Dark on my faded jeans. I took a close up shot of a faded area of my jeans. Tried the Woolite Dark, and voila! Very impressive. Jeans look as good as new! Tide has competition now. I always loved the smell of Tide, and always felt it washed my clothes the best, but now that Woolite can also bring color back to life!!! Oh yeah! I went ahead and bought their Woolite Extra Care for Dedicates since this worked so well. Stay tuned for more reviews.

How to pay tribute to your loved ones on your wedding day.

Many of us have someone close to our heart that is missing on our wedding day. For me, it was my late Brother Bill. He was the sweetest man I have ever known. He was so caring and loving, and had the best smirk in the world! Not having him there on my wedding day was so painful & difficult, so I had to figure out a way to honor him. I knew he would have loved my husband, and definitely would have given us his blessing on our marriage.

For my husband, he wanted to honor his late Father Arkady. After my husband proposed, we went over to his Mother's house for dinner the following day. She went into her closest, and took out his Father's ring. It fit like a glove. His father's ring was made out of rose gold. It was so touching to have him wear it and honor him on our wedding day. Our Rabbi mentioned the meaning of the ring, and said some kind words about his Father during our ceremony.

For me it was not so easy. How could I honor my brother? What do I have of his that would do the job? Well my Rabbi gave me such an incredible idea. He told me to use Bill's Tallit from his Bar Mitzvah. He mentioned that he would drape it over the two of us during our ceremony. I was so thrilled and thought it was a fantastic idea!

On the day of my wedding, I was absolutely prepared for this moment. I was so excited to marry my best friend, and to honor my brother at the ceremony. I couldn't help but feel so emotional and shed some tears as the Rabbi draped the Tallit over the two of us and said some kind words about Bill. It was so touching, and I will never forget it, for I truly felt his presence in the room there with us. 

Recently, my sister sent me a photo of her and I delivering my Brother's Tallit to him during his Bar Mitzvah. I had to put the two photos together. It just made sense! I plan to frame this photo, along with his Tallit in a shadow box, and give it to my Mom. I will post the finished product.

My Brother Bill's Tallit

Dried Flowers- what you can do with them...

I love flowers. I love the memories behind the flowers I have received or have collected. It could be something as simple as my husband bringing me home flowers on Valentines, or a flower I collected in a park. Even flowers I have collected on our honeymoon, or various vacations. 

Save your flowers! Put them in an old book, and let them dry for a few days. Then you can laminate them and have fun enhancing their beauty using an online photo program.

I plan to make a crafty flower book of our 2012 memories. Since this was the year we got married and went on our Honeymoon, I expect to have a great collection!

Remember, you can blow up your photos and frame them.
