I feel like there is a huge emphasis on the postpartum "new mom bod" in our society. Every time a celebrity has a baby there is lots of press touting her getting her body back, or how she looks post-baby.... Continue reading

Sunday was Mother's Day. It's also the day that Oscar turned four months old. I can't believe I've been a mom for four months. It feels like it's been far less and far more time than that. At four months,... Continue reading

Ever since Oscar was born, I've become extra efficient and even more organized than I was before. I had time management down pat - or so I thought. Now? I feel like my time management skills have been thrown into... Continue reading

Oh heyyyy! So this little man is now 3 months old. Time is FLYING! I'm more and more starting to feel like I'm getting the hang of this mom thing. Or just being a mom. I know how Oscar cries... Continue reading

So in 2015, my word of the year was grow. I wanted to grow as a person and grow in other ways. I wanted to approach a multitude of things in life with an attitude of growth. That being said,... Continue reading

It's been a while. I know. You see, one of my plans for the New Year was to get back into blogging regularly. I chose my verb for 2016 (which I plan to blog about soon!), and was all set... Continue reading

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
