The amount of times "write" has been on my to do list is laughable. We're in the season of life where the to-do lists get lengthy and are often never finished. Instead, I tried making "need to do" and "want to do" lists thinking I could go back and forth and, while that helped in … Continue reading Connection through Sharing
This draft has been sitting in my folder since April 3. Almost 3 months have gone by and I have opened and closed it more times than I could count. It's been written in my planner on my running 'to do' list ever since I started it. Still, I haven't been able to bring myself … Continue reading Losing LBR 3.0 – Dealing with Miscarriage
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!
