February 2015

Ahh! She’s three months old.  I can’t believe.  Time flies when you have a baby, but a SECOND baby?!  Time goes even faster (you must fall into a black hole after the birth of a third or fourth!).   As Claire turns three months, we mark the end of the so-called “Fourth Trimester.” And she’s [...]


Yay!  So excited to pass this deal along... I have a great TOTALLY FREE offer for readers looking to jumpstart their spring cleaning! Although I can’t tell by the snow outside my window, spring is right around the corner.  And that means it’s nearly spring cleaning time.  I didn’t realize before becoming a homeowner how [...]



We got hit with a few inches of snow on Monday night!  It was the good kind, too – no freezing rain to make the roads miserable and close down the entire city.  Just big, fluffy flakes that were perfect for making a little snowman.   I was extra pumped because the snow delayed my [...]


I feel the need… the need for speed.  In everything I do lately, but especially in my workouts! With two small kiddos, it is SO not easy to get to the gym.  Or out the door for a run.  But it’s really important to me, so I try to find the time to exercise.  Unfortunately, [...]


Whoa, Baby!

Did you have a nice weekend? We did!  MomHTP came to visit because the Husband went out of town – together with his sister, Kristien took my mother-in-law on a CRUISE for her 60th birthday!  I hope my kids take me on a cruise for my 60th!  Hah.  I would’ve tagged alone, but it was [...]


Book a Week + Everything in My Kindle

This week’s Book a Week was an important one for me. I read How to Talk So Kids Will Listen and Listen So Kids Will Talk.  I actually started this book last year but only got through two chapters before I set it aside.  The introduction recommends reading it sloooowly so you have time to [...]


Scroll down for the giveaway!   I’m starting to focus on getting faster.  I use the term “faster” loosely because I’ve never been a fast runner – but I’d like to speed up my normal in preparation for the Publix Savannah Women’s Half and 5K on March 29.  (I’m race ambassador and am doing the [...]


Wednesday Morning

Are you having a nice day?  So far – mine is pretty good!  I absolutely love our morning routine right now.  I wake up with Claire and feed her, and then I go into the bathroom to pump.  Henry always hears us moving around and comes sprinting up the stairs to hug his little sister.  [...]


Best Sports Bra Ever

So I was digging through my exercise clothing drawer (okay – it’s actually four drawers!) and trying to organize things.  I’ve weighed between 125 – 165 pounds in the last year, and I own a ton of gear in a wide range of sizes.  Every time I get dressed for a workout, I end up [...]


Valentine’s Day Weekend

Did you have a good weekend?  We certainly did.  I feel like we jammed a lot in – you’ll see!   First of all, I had three awesome workouts.  I was feeling pretty sluggish during the week because Claire reverted back to waking up every 2 – 3 hours.  It was painful.  Must have been [...]


(True story) 1. Decide to go to the playground.  Begin process of leaving the house.   2. Tell toddler he’s got to get dressed.  Go upstairs.  Get clothes.  Come downstairs to dress toddler.  Where is toddler?  Toddler is hiding.   3. Search for toddler.   4. Find toddler behind the bathroom door.  Chase toddler into [...]


The Worst Hair Cut Ever + Book a Week

Last week, Henry was going through a “moment” and was being a stubborn little man.  I think it actually coordinated with a mental leap because I’ve noticed a lot of new cognitive developments (like he suddenly figured out how to actually hide and be quiet during Hide and Seek – not doing this <— gosh, [...]


How to: Toy Rotation

My friend posted a link to an article about an easy toy rotation method in our Mom’s Group, and since then, several of my friends have tried it out with great success.  I decided to also do it after I realized that Henry doesn’t play with 80% of his toys – and he really doesn’t [...]


Oreo Rice Krispy Treats

Happy almost Valentine’s Day! Do you have fun plans?  We’re hosting a fun couples potluck on Saturday night, and I am really looking forward to it.  It’s also pretty amusing to try and explain the holiday to Henry.  He currently thinks that Valentine’s Day is all about eating chocolate and Daddy giving Mommy a pretty [...]
