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
Not the Traditinal Valentine
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
New Name, New Website, & a Giveaway!
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!
Cooking with Kids: 3 Ingredient Spooky Cake Batter Cookies
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.

My babies, I’m so sorry
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
Sometimes You Just Need a Sticker
I contemplated quite a bit about writing and sharing this. I struggle regularly with wanting things to be perfect so the thought of writing this and having it serve as a reminder of the not-so-great days seems backwards. But, in the spirit of transparency, here it is. You know I like to keep it real and … Continue reading Sometimes You Just Need a Sticker
10 Things I’ve Learned After Baby #2
Oh, how things have changed! My last post was what seems like so long ago and I was super pregnant. We've now had Alexander home for about 2 months and we are in the constant process of finding our new "normal"...even if I question what normal is or if it even exists at all when your … Continue reading 10 Things I’ve Learned After Baby #2
Saying Goodbye & Awaiting Hello
It seems like the more pregnant you get, the more you find yourself mourning the 'loss' of something, whether it be your current family routine, your personal time, hobbies you enjoy and you know will be tough to find time for, your ankles, or even the ability to bend over and tie your shoes without asking for … Continue reading Saying Goodbye & Awaiting Hello
The Unspoken Guilt
T-minus 33 days (hopefully) until our newest family addition will make his appearance into the world. This, in other words, means I am a hormonal, waddling mess who happens to look like I am smuggling a watermelon under my shirt everywhere I go while attempting to look put together. It's fabulous, really. In all seriousness, I … Continue reading The Unspoken Guilt
Goals Check-in: How is it Already February?!
Seriously. Where did the first month of the year go?! I don't know how many times I thought to myself about things I wanted to write about and then...just never did. I don't even have any good reasons as to why not! Seems silly when writing can be so therapeutic to me; there is something … Continue reading Goals Check-in: How is it Already February?!
