I hate deciding what to eat and love having things either prepped ahead of time or easy to grab and go and this is especially true for breakfast during the week. Weekends are great because there is more time - nobody is rushing out the door anywhere and I usually get spoiled by Dave cooking. … Continue reading What to Eat Wednesday: Smoothies & Protein Shakes 3 New Ways
I miss writing. I miss making it a priority and I feel like I say that each time I sit down to actually write. I start writing things 20 times a day in my head but never make the time for myself to sit down and put pen to paper (or fingers to keyboard?) to … Continue reading Throwback Thursday: Remembering Where I Started and Celebrating the Non-Scale Victories
When I got engaged, I was in the middle of a weight loss journey that was really important to me. Dave and I had seen photos of ourselves and realized our happy hours at Applebees with mudslides and boneless wings hadn't been kind to our bodies. By the the time we got married, I had … Continue reading Before and After: Adventures in Body Back
I cannot remember the last 'bad' day that I had and for that I am incredibly grateful. I know if I sat and tried to dig something up I could, but the fact that nothing immediately stands out to me makes me feel super lucky. My kids are generally very well behaved and my husband … Continue reading A Case of…The Wednesdays?
When we found out Alex's due date, we quickly realized birthday parties would be a small problem - he was due April 12, one day before his sister's birthday. He made his debut April 11 leaving us 2 birthdays to celebrate within 3 days and, being mid-April, those days (or surrounding ones) will often coincide … Continue reading Alex & Caitlin’s Joint Birthday Adventure
Mr. Alex, It's 1am and I should be sleeping but, much like so many other moms of the world, my mind is racing and while bed would be best for me, here we are. Sweet boy, you are one. ONE! How did that happen? When did that happen? I feel like we just left the … Continue reading To My Sweet Boy on His First Birthday
Ok, this post has been started and sitting in my drafts since February 16. Almost an entire damn month! I write these things out in my head and then get distracted by a toddler tantrum ready to blow at any second and a baby boy who is almost 1 and destroys any room he's in within … Continue reading Not the Traditinal Valentine
Hello from my new site, Glitter & Goldfish! After realizing my blog was on, quite possibly, the least user friendly site around, I've finally finished the arduous task of moving over all my previous blog posts to their new home. The user friendliness rating tanked even more (as if that was possible) when they had zero … Continue reading New Name, New Website, & a Giveaway!
Quick and easy post because this is too good not to share for all my momma friends. Right when I felt like we were in a good groove, I have recently become stressed with little things like even leaving the house with both kiddos. Alex is still our sweet angel baby but his schedule doesn't quiet … Continue reading Cooking with Kids: 3 Ingredient Spooky Cake Batter Cookies
I just had to edit the date of this entry...I started writing this almost 3 weeks ago. I didn't get far because I didn't know how to write down the best words to convey what I was feeling, or if I really even wanted to share. I actually questioned today if PPD can rear its ugly … Continue reading My babies, I’m so sorry
