The Socially-Distanced Pediatric Care Changing the Game for Boca Moms During COVID-19

Let me ask you this question: If your child gets sick right now, what are your options? With social distancing guidelines in full effect, the LAST place we want to end up with our kids is a germy doctor’s office or Emergency Room. I’ve been shouting it from the rooftops for YEARS! But, if you haven’t become a member of the game-changing Boca VIPediatrics yet, there is actually no. time. like. the. present! Seriously. Launched in 2013, this (currently socially distanced pediatric care in Boca) concept is the answer to all of your parent prayers and peace-of-mind. Plus, there is NOTHING quite like it in our area.

Boca Raton Patio and Pool Makeover Reveal featuring Outer

Since the day #modernbocadad and I moved into our “forever home” almost 7 years ago, we wanted to make over our Boca Raton patio and pool. Our pool was built in 1981 and while our ages may be close, it was in much rougher shape initially.

Boca Raton Patio and Pool Makeover
Yuck.

See all those spots? No matter how hard we tried to clean them, black algae would constantly settle in, especially during the hot, summer months. The pool’s surface had worn away in many places due to its age and, in my opinion, was an eyesore considering it was a focal point of our house.

The Best NewAir Home Beverage Fridge, “Bar” None…

When we re-did our kitchen in 2017, we had to nix our dream of building a ‘home bar’ to stay on budget. We had so many cabinets and pricey counter tops to buy, I just couldn’t justify the additional cost at the time. But then I got the itch…that home renovation craving to do a project this fall. Can you blame me? I’m married to Handy Andy Boca after all! I’m the queen of the ongoing honey-do list. 😉 But I’ll be honest. It was also fueled by NewAir (remember their amazing 19 bottle wine cooler??) shipping us a ridiculously cool (pun intended) 126 can Newair Home Beverage Fridge to try out.

I mean, how could I NOT include it our dream/future home bar?

With the capacity to hold up to 126 standard cans, you can fit all the drinks you want inside — without having to make room for a larger appliance. That’s over 20 full six-packs, so you’ll never be left high and dry in the middle of a party or with your thirsty children.

The Best Ever Boca Raton Kitchen Makeover

This Boca Raton kitchen makeover post is sponsored by ShelfGenie; however, all thoughts and opinions are my own.


As 2017’s Hurricane Irma was rolling into town, so were our new kitchen cabinets. Great timing, right? Modern Boca Dad, now better known locally as Handy Andy Boca, spent an entire afternoon dragging boxes of brand new white cabinets from our garage into our guest room to make sure not a drop of rising floodwaters got anywhere near them. This Boca Raton kitchen makeover was our BIGGEST investment in our home to date and I desperately wanted it to turn out beautifully!

Spoiler alert: it did. The bulk of the project was completed before the holidays that year. We suffered little damage from Irma, thankfully, and Handy Andy did the install himself. Since that time, we’ve added a sparkly backsplash, wine cooler and strip lighting under the upper cabinets. We’re even planning on building a bar to round out our Boca Raton kitchen makeover! But the best investment into the kitchen we made BY FAR was partnering with ShelfGenie, Continue reading The Best Ever Boca Raton Kitchen Makeover

The Best South Florida Home Projects for Spring

I love spring! But a lot of the time, spring in Florida is like an early summer. I guess this depends on where you live in state (and if you are always here, or have a second home up North). But for most of us, spring is just the beginning of summer…at least in my opinion. It’s not bad, though! I will take warm weather anytime over Florida’s winter’s chill. Spring is the perfect time to take advantage of all that Florida has to offer and it’s also a great time to start on some home projects.

Here are my favorite South Florida home projects for  spring:
