My kids slept like champions.

In turn, I slept like a champion.


We bought a giant chocolate bar.

Kristien and I tried to play Trivial Pursuit…

But quickly realized that we lack the knowledge required to play such a game and switched to Monopoly.  I lost.

I bought this lovely body cream.  It smells like a vacation.

I also bought these black jeans!  Target has some really nice jeans, actually.


I’m over wearing maternity pants, and I’m two sizes away from my normal clothes but refuse to feel frumpy any longer.  Yay for clothes that fit!  Worth every penny.


Speaking of clothes, I went through my closet and did a MAJOR purge. I clean it out regularly but I tend to hang onto stuff I never wear thinking I may, actually, wear it again. 


This time, I donated everything I haven’t worn in the last two years for real.  I’m left with a ton of room in my closet. BLISSFUL.


And last, but not least, I’m about to go meet Brandi for a run.  I’m hoping to do 4.0 miles.  That means…


This Week’s Workouts:


Monday: 2.2 mile run

Tuesday: 1.5 mile walk pushing Claire in the stroller and wearing Henry on my back

Wednesday: Rest

Thursday: 2.2 mile walk pushing Claire in the stroller and wearing Henry on my back

Friday: Rest

Saturday: Rest

Sunday: 4.0 mile run (?)

    Looks like you had a fantastic weekend filed with great things! I can’t wait to do a spring closet purge as well- it feels so good to get rid of things- but it is hard to do! I’m thinking of doing a post on this whole organization process 🙂

    xo, Lauren @

    I tried to comment on your leggings giveaway post but couldn’t for some reason — anyway, I’m catching up on blogs and just wanted to tell you that you look amazing. 🙂 I’m six months pp and jealous!

    I love the Mossimo brand jeans at Target! They are the perfect no frills jeans.

  • Nicole @ Broken Road Creative January 25, 2015, 9:26 pm

    Love the new jeans! I’m almost 5 months postpartum and I’ve been having to buy some new stuff myself. My maternity stuff is kinda big but still comfy, yet my regular clothes are, uh, not so flattering right now… and probably won’t be until I’m done nursing (if you know what I’m saying). I hate this phase but hey, the good news is, when you’ve got cute kiddos around, hardly anyone notices what Mom’s wearing 😀

    Love that your kitty was spying your game! I’ve got great videos of our kitten trying to get in on the game night action : ) I love my black jeans. I rarely wear anything else now!

    Glad to know there are other people around 30 years old that also suck at Trivial Pursuit, haha! Glad you had a great weekend. 🙂

    Sorry to hijack the comments with something that has nothing to do with the post, but I tweeted at you and I’m not sure if you saw it. I’m doing a very short distance indoor triathlon at the end of February, and I’d like to do just a little bit of training for it. I did the same race last year with no training and did a decent job, so I figure if I do anything this year I should improve. Do you have anything in your Tri training arsenal that might help me prepare for it? It’s a 300 yard swim, 8 mile bike (spin bike) and two mile treadmill run.

      I didn’t see this – sorry! I would definitely do a lot of bricks – like swim-bike or bike-run combos. I bet that will help a lot too. How were your transition times last year? You could practice transitions too.

      • Kristy B. January 26, 2015, 2:24 pm

        Luckily they don’t time transitions, though I wouldn’t mind practicing because I might do a REAL tri someday. I started yesterday doing a brick — 15 minutes on the spin bike followed by a 15 minute run. Do you think doing one swim-bike and one bike-run brick/week leading up to the race is too much or too little? Thanks for the help!

        • Caitlin January 26, 2015, 2:29 pm

          That would be perfect !

    I swear a good 1/3 of my closet is from Target hahaha. But hey, good clothes!

  • Stephanie @ Whole Health Dork January 26, 2015, 1:00 pm

    Holy smokes, girl! That walking is no joke with all that extra weight! And so jealous of you wearing a tank! We’re getting a wicked blizzard here tomorrow. Pretty, I’ll admit, but I could do without the cold.
    I agree-clothes that works makes you feel so much better! I purge my clothes seasonally, but I’ve gotten so good at purging lately that I’m only left with basics that I love and it’s made my life so much easier to have a more minimalist wardrobe. I highly recommend it!

  • Rebecca @ Bring Back Delicious January 26, 2015, 1:44 pm

    Carrying a little one around all day is definitely tiring! I have an old lady back because of it whereas just over a year ago I could deadlift almost 250 lbs no problem. Boo 🙂

    Congrats on purging your closet. I hated the in between phase of getting back into my old clothes.

  • Ashley January 26, 2015, 2:57 pm

    It is so funny to me to read your posts these days, because so much of it is exactly what I did/felt/experienced just a few months ago (my kids are also 2 years apart and my youngest is now almost 5 months). Your MBAB post, especially! And, those are the exact jeans I bought after Lola, haha.
