Friday faves {holiday edition}

December 5, 2014

WOAH, how is it Friday? This week has been NUTS. I’ve been busy prepping that magazine piece I was telling you about on Monday, and the interviews/writing work have been eating up my blogging time. BUT I’ll be wrapping that up this weekend and, hopefully, back to full blogging action next week! (Whatever that means?) […]

Inspiration board #8

December 1, 2014

Hi there! How was your Thanksgiving? Ours was…a little intense. We were traveling for the entire 4 day weekend, which is stressful in and of itself with two kiddos. Mason’s notorious for being a less-than-great traveler, but this time he was also sick, so his sleep was a disaster (and therefore, everyone’s sleep was a […]

My only two holiday “rules”

November 26, 2014

Happy Thanksgiving Eve! My morning so far has been consumed by packing (for 1 adult and 2 kids—and I’m embarrassed about how much longer the 1 adult took… I’m SO bad at packing!) Now, Josh and I are hanging out at our new favorite coffee shop for a bit before we pick up big bro […]

Winter wonderland and a workout

November 24, 2014

As I write this, it’s snowing outside (in the pretty winter wonderland kind of way), I have a really cozy-smelling candle burning (still loving these), and I’m drinking tea (the standard). Bonus: both kids are miraculously sleeping at the same time. It’s so nice that I’m almost tempted to think “maybe winter ain’t so bad.” […]

Reflections on the 10 day no sugar challenge

November 21, 2014

So, my 10 day no sugar challenge is officially over! Now comes the part where I brain dump on you about it. Excited?? The end was actually really anticlimactic. I thought I was going to wake up to angels singing and mounds of golden chocolate in the living room, but it was kinda just another […]

My bloggy comfort zone and day 10 of no sugar

November 19, 2014

I completely forgot to tell you that my first post for the local Moms Blog went live last week. It was kind of intimidating putting myself out there to a whole new group of readers, so I’m glad to have that first post out of the way! Of course, I had to stay in my […]

Inspiration board #7

November 17, 2014

I have two words: TOO. SOON. I ventured out with Mason for his first snow experience of the year, and…it was a little rough. He could barely walk in his boots (I think they’re the right size? It’s seriously impossible to be sure). He threw snowballs straight up in the air and they landed on […]

I mustache you some questions

November 13, 2014

Hey guys! So it’s Day 4 of the sugar detox, and it’s actually going shockingly well. Like, I only dreamt about Oreos one time (why Oreos?? I haven’t had them in like a year), and I even resisted the two tiny leftover bites of chicken nuggets on Mason’s plate (if that sounds gross—trust me, it’s […]

The natural sugar halo

November 11, 2014

I’m definitely guilty of thinking that as long as I’m eating natural sugar, and not the evil white stuff, I’m being healthy. But the more I research and think about this, the more I realize the sad, sad, SAD (it deserves 3 sads) truth: Sugar is sugar. Sure, it’s better for our overall health to […]

No sugar day 1 + newborn pics!

November 10, 2014

Hey guys! How was your weekend? I had one of those “what did I do all weekend?” weekends. Mostly, I remember a lot of hanging out with this super serious kid: On Saturday morning, I went to a hot yoga class, and something horrible happened. I put my hair up in a super tight bun, […]
