She's 3.5 years old already and she talks like a teen... seriously, after this picture she got a LOL Doll and goes "like oh my gawsh." She's spunky, sassy, opinionated, loving, and full of fun, most of the time. I like her best when she's sleeping though Threenager IS a real thing. #3AndAHalfYearsOld #ToddlerLife
Today was important. This is important. "#TimesUp so I won't be a #MeToo." Miranda understands the basic idea of her sign and it breaks my heart that it even IS a sign. But, this is important. Today was important. Thank you to all who marched, especially those in this picture!! ✊️#WomensMarch2018 #LincolnMemorial
#2017BestNine There were a lot of goofy family times and lots of Hanson. There were a lot of great times with a lot of smiles. I didn't post as much as I wanted to or follow IG as much as I wanted to because like the world being a mess, so was (is) Instagram's timeline. 2017. Let's continue the good stuff and do better with the rest in 2018!! Happy New Year, again!! #Family #Hanson #Yorkies #Bye2017 #Hello2018
I have some wonderful friends around the country that I got to have some great times with this year. I love you all dearly and am thankful we've been brought together. I wish I'd posted these pictures earlier, because your faces make me happy and you mean so much to me I hope we can have as many gts together in 2018 as we did in 2017!! #Friends #TravelBuddies #ConcertBuddies #BFFs #
Since 2017 is coming to a close, and these guys were such a huge part of my 2017 (and lbr, the past 20 years of my life), I figured I should share at least one set of this year's Hanson selfies. So congrats on 25 years as a band and thanks for an over the top year- can't wait to see what 2018 brings!! (Zac & Taylor shots are from Carnegie Music Hall, Isaac's is from Fillmore Philly- and huge shout out to @honey080bee for being an awesome bro and snapping a pic of me taking the Zac selfie because that's my fave of the lot ) #Latergram #Hanson #ZacHanson #TaylorHanson #IsaacHanson #Hanson25 #MOETour
A fully lit menorah is such a beautiful thing to see- but also sad since it means the end of our 8 crazy nights!! Hope everyone celebrating has had a wonderful Hanukkah, and those that celebrate any other holidays this year have a very merry and safe season!! (If you don't celebrate anything- congratulations, you probably still have money in the bank.) #Hanukkah #HappyHanukkah #EighthNightOfHanukkah #Candles #Menorah
Finally got to eat some latkes tonight, laughed a ton between a bunch of kids running around and playing both PieFace Showdown & Cards Against Humanity (one with the kids, one without), and waited for 4 menorahs with 7 candles each to be lit so there was a ton of light!! Miranda's shirt couldn't have been more appropriate for this evening at Nana's with all the (local) cousins!! And in case you didn't know, that's Gail and Bridget Rebecca BB joining Night 6's pic #Hanukkah #HappyHanukkah #SixthNightOfHanukkah #Candles #Menorah
Special shout out to all the places carrying Hanukkah gear. I know the Jewish population is minuscule in the scheme of things, but finding things meant for Hanukkah when it seems the world is focused on other holidays, really means a lot!! So, Build A Bear, Bed Bath & Beyond, Target, and all the small shops we've found online, thank you for making us feel included!! #Hanukkah #HappyHanukkah #ThirdNightOfHanukkah #Candles #Menorah
Today we went to a jewelry store because Miranda decided she wanted to get Rob a gift on her own- and she wanted to get him a Star of David necklace. She got some money out of her piggy bank, put it in her purse, and we went. She told the lady what she wanted, was shown a few different options, picked the one she liked, and paid for it all by herself!! It was so cute, I couldn't even stand it. Obviously, she was super excited to give it to him after the candles were lit!! Happy Night 2!! #Hanukkah #HappyHanukkah #SecondNightOfHanukkah #Candles #Menorah
My calendar had me believing tomorrow was the first night of Hanukkah... it was a rush to find our usual menorah and we failed. So, this year we'll be using this beautiful wooden menorah Rob's grandfather made, isn't it awesome?! Happy Hanukkah, to those that celebrate, hope the first night has been last scattered than ours!! #Hanukkah #HappyHanukkah #FirstNightOfHanukkah #Candles #Menorah #Presents
These dapper gentlemen are Christmas to me. Being Jewish and (obviously) not celebrating Christmas- I don't have family memories of decorating a tree, opening presents at 6am Christmas morning, going to church (besides that one time I went to midnight mass with cousins or that time when I was angel in my preschool's Christmas play), etc- I don't have the typical Christmas traditions that many in this world do. I'm one of those lonely Jews on Christmas. BUT, 20 years ago they released Snowed In and for 20 years I've sung along to all the songs during the season. The songs have a bit of a different meaning to me than they do for most, but they do mean the world to me. Getting a new album of Hanson Christmas songs this year AND getting to see a whole show of Christmas songs last night was truly wonderful. This song will always hold the most special place in my heart from when @meganrflr and I would sing it endlessly to get it just right so we could perform it for her family- it was the obvious choice for which video to share!! (Full song on my Facebook) So, thank you, @zachanson, @taylorhanson, and @isaachanson for being my Christmas tradition and making everyone come together with your glorious music. (And thank you, @markohudson for being such a great producer on both albums- getting to see you on stage last night was a true treat!!) @hanson @playstationtheater #Hanson #WhiteChristmas #SnowedIn #FinallyItsChristmas #Christmas #ChristmasMusic #Acapella
Some parents have a kid that wants to be a princess... then there's my kid who wants to be a princess but also loves Walking Dead and wants to be a walker. So, here's my little walker princess featuring Gail as her snack!! Happy Halloween, once again, everyone!! #HappyHalloween #WalkerPrincess #ZombiePrincess
How do I become a professional opossum cuddler? Or start a possum rescue? I am so obsessed with this cutie at Irvine- and really any possum ever- I just feel myself go into an Elmira from Tiny Toons mode whenever I see them. Plus, they'll eat ticks and that's amazing. #Opossum #Possum #IrvineNatureCenter
Being in the middle of tour time is making me nostalgic af. So I went through my pics from this year's Hop Jam and found a few gems but this is my absolute fave. The joy on all the guys' faces while playing to any crowd intensifies the joy on ours- and this pic of Zac just radiates that. Nashville was an amazing show and I have 3 more shows in the next week. So, if you see me and I look like a smiling buffoon- this is why. #TBT #Hanson #ZacHanson #HopJam #HopJam2017 #Tulsa #ConcertPhotography
As I sit at BWI waiting to board my flight for Nashville, I'm gonna TBT to the last time I flew- this past Saturday!! Did I like it? I honestly have no idea. Will I do it again? Hell yeah. Thanks to Hoffie for having a birthday and suggesting we all do this, Wes who made sure I didn't die in there, and to Hanson for having their #IWasBornChallenge which gave me the courage to just do it!! @iflyus @iflybaltimore @hanson #IndoorSkydiving #IWasBorn #DoGoBe
Well. This happened today...
It was weird leaving her with a bunch of strangers for the first time ever. She's going somewhere she already feels comfortable, so that was helpful. Nonetheless, we've been lucky enough that Miranda has always been with someone she's related to, and trusting others to take care of her is just weird. She walked right into her classroom and made herself at home- she played inside, played outside, did some arts and crafts, had a snack, and the first day was over.
The only hopes I have for her are that she is kept safe, has fun, and continues to be the caring person that is against bullying. Like most parents, I never want to see my kid on either side of bullying and fingers crossed the other kids she'll encounter in her schooling will have parents teaching them the same.
Oh, and if you didn't think I was the type of parent to do one of these signs, you thought wrong. Thanks to Rob for making it for her!! #FirstDayOfSchool #Preschooler #StandAgainstBullying
Had so much fun last week at Pier 6 enjoying Switchfoot and Lifehouse while working for JACK-FM! And I'm kind of obsessed at how this shot I took of Jon from Switchfoot came out Ready to be there again tonight for Goo Goo Dolls!! #Switchfoot #JonForeman #LookingForSummerTour #iHeartMyJob #ConcertPhotography
