I am having just a little trouble wrapping my head around the fact that we are pretty much one week from December. Where did this year go? It's flown, is really the only answer. I'm now very nearly into single-digit... Continue reading

I'm four weeks into my hypnobirthing class and after writing about how I feared labor? I am feeling way better about the whole thing - going into labor, giving birth, and feeling really really good about my choice of childbirth... Continue reading

This is not even remotely the first time I've done a life, lately post. But it's okay. Because Life has been busy lately. Really. Really. Busy. The weekend prior to Halloween we had our first baby shower. My mom, sister,... Continue reading

The world, in general, is a pretty easy to get along in space. But it's also a little scary. I'm afraid of the unknown. Of not fitting in (sometimes I stand out more than I fit in). Of being left... Continue reading

And that's okay. I don't always know what to write. This weekend has been a whirlwind. Lots of emotions. We have a crib for the baby on the way, courtesy of my wonderful grandparents! We have chosen childcare for when... Continue reading

This week, I'm all about appreciating the small things. It's been a busy week that felt like it was too long and too short all at once. I'm so happy it's the weekend! This week I needed to take time... Continue reading

Okay. So I've wanted to build a capsule wardrobe for a while. A long while. But I've had some concern about not having enough to wear. When really? That's all relative. If you have enough versatile pieces you can mix... Continue reading

On Saturday, I took a two hour class at my hospital to learn more about nursing the baby once he is here. At 22 weeks pregnant, I took the class a lot farther in advance than most mothers typically do,... Continue reading

And I'm totally enjoying the weekend full of relaxation and fun. After a busy Saturday morning. I plan to kick back, relax, and enjoy this amazing Blood Orange Soda. YUM! Happy Friday! Continue reading

Y'all. Life lately has been just a bit chaotic lately. There isn't enough time in my day to really watch TV (shocker, I'm catching up on my shows via DVR), except really Doctor Who. Nor is there enough time to... Continue reading

Sunday night we were lucky enough to be able to see the supermoon eclipse. Well, most of it. We ended up with too much cloud cover to catch the blood moon, but what we saw? Incredible. It was pretty awesome.... Continue reading

Lately the 100 days of blogging has been behind the blog work. Brainstorming posts. Working on pictures for future posts. And combating some wicked nausea. Which is why I've been silent online (mostly), and writing up a storm offline. So... Continue reading

Today was one of those simple sorts of Saturdays. Cloudy and cool, and just laid-back. My day began with toast and coffee in the backyard and ended with ice cream and Doctor Who, with a relaxed afternoon in the middle.... Continue reading

The Reds are winding down their season and it's sad to me that baseball is (sort of) coming to an end. We have the playoffs and World Series of course, but to me the end of the regular season is... Continue reading

It is no surprise: I love fall. Especially now. I get to wear leggings and sweaters and tunics and boots. Soon enough. Right now it's in the 80s during the day and chilly overnight, so it's perfect sleeping weather. I... Continue reading

I ran a 7k race. Pregnant. I feel like a badass. In some ways, I feel like I should. In others, eh. It was 4.3 miles. I've run it before. Just not at 20 weeks pregnant. Now, this year, I... Continue reading

Today, we just hung out around the house. Went for a walk. Worked on our baby registries. It was a good day to recharge and get ready for the work week ahead. I'll have a race recap up tomorrow. Tonight,... Continue reading

I don't often write about what I do before a race. I figure most things are pretty common knowledge: train for the race you're going to be running; don't change anything race day, including what you eat before you run;... Continue reading

Tomorrow morning I'm running one of my favorite races: the Hudepohl Brewery 7k. I can't wait! It's A race with a party atmosphere and I am ready to rock it out! All of my gear is laid out and I... Continue reading

Allen went to Japan last month and brought me back a small collection of Kit-Kat Bars Normally you'd think that would be odd. But most of these are flavors I cannot find in the U.S. My favorites? Strawberry, green tea,... Continue reading

If there is one thing that hasn't changed for me over the past 16 weeks or so, it's the amount of time I spend moving. I've been working to keep up with my exercise routine, with some modifications to stay... Continue reading

We had our 20 week ultrasound on Monday. This was the first time in almost 10 weeks that Allen and I have gotten a glimpse of our little one, and we've been eagerly anticipating this moment ever since we first... Continue reading

Now that I'm (nearly) 20 weeks pregnant, I thought it would be perfect to share what got me through my first trimester. Cravings, aversions, nausea, and all. It's a short list, and it's short on photos, but it's as comprehensive... Continue reading

Recently, while listening to the podcast "Elise Gets Crafty," hosted by the awesome Elise Joy, I was introduced to The Great Discontent's 100 Days Project. The Project asks, essentially, "what can you do or create with 100 days?" And you... Continue reading
