Friday randomness

February 6, 2015

Hey guys! It’s funny to me that my last post was called “Am I dead?”…and then I proceeded to take an even longer blogging break. So, alternative title for this post: “Am I sure I’m not dead?” Still totally alive and totally swamped! But in a good way. I’m loving everything I’m doing right now. […]

Am I dead?

January 23, 2015

In case you were wondering… I’m alive! Hi! Just being a super flaky blogger right now. Life is crazy, as usual. For one thing, I’ve had multiple meaty freelance projects come at me at the same time, including a 4-page spread (!!) for that magazine I wrote for last month. This time I’m writing about […]

Travel advice wanted + post-baby body update

January 12, 2015

Ok, let’s start with the important stuff: we booked our Florida vacay! Mid-April, 6 nights, Ft. Myers beach. We somehow got an insanely cute 3 bedroom house with a private pool for less $$ than ANY of the hotels I looked at. I guess the secrets are: 1) booking a place 20 feet from the […]

Vacation hunting and fitness planning

January 8, 2015

Hey guys! As you can see, I still haven’t recovered my old blogging habits since the holiday break… (Womp womp.) One huge reason is that I’m planning a family vacation to Florida, so my spare time has been eaten up by endless internet searching. (It’s seriously a part time job right now, since I’m obsessed […]

Not the holiday story I was hoping to tell

January 5, 2015

I’M BACK! And I have to say: I’ve never been more eager to get back to a normal routine. The past two weeks have been…dramatic. Before I get into the whole saga, check it out: my first magazine contribution is hot off the press, and it comes complete with my first published name misspelling! (It’s […]

The parenting marathon and living room barre workouts

December 23, 2014

Whew. The last four days have been tough. Last Friday, Mason started getting sick, and over the weekend, it progressed into pneumonia. He was sicker than I’ve ever seen him. Completely listless, zero appetite, and—here’s the worst part—zero interest in sleeping. The nights have been almost as long as the days. When he wasn’t zoned […]

“I don’t like stuff that sucks”

December 19, 2014

Guys: I have a new book crush. (And yes, I will explain that title, haha.) Several months ago, I put in a request at the library for a book I’d heard about somewhere on the interweb. There was a long waiting list, so I figured I’d see it in a year, and totally forgot about […]

Truth time + adult Christmas is kind of lame

December 17, 2014

Guys! I don’t think I’ve slacked off this much in the blogging department since…ever! I’ve been waiting for inspiration to strike, rather than “forcing” it, and so far, the result has been: a whole lotta nada. I should feel guilty and stressed about it, but for some reason, I feel pretty darn happy. Liberated, even. […]

Good news and a little holiday photo shoot

December 12, 2014

There’s something I’ve been looking forward to saying for months… My BodyFlow video is DONE! (In case you’re like “hrmm?”: to complete my certification as a BodyFlow instructor, I had to record myself teaching a full live class and send it in for review. Talk about nerves!) I had a really supportive class, which was […]

Surprise benefits of letting go

December 10, 2014

Hey! Wow, things have been a little quiet around here. I’m not stressing about it, because, well, THIS…but I wanted to stop in and drop a quick what’s up. (Who talks like that? No one. Absolutely no one says that.) I feel like a bunch of random Life Things are coming to a head at […]
