Let me share with you the conversations that a household of girls might experience… Conversation between the 5 year old and 3 year old while getting ready for school in the bathroom: 5 year old: “Is Jack going to be at school today? Don’t you think he’s cute?! Is he your Boooooyyyyffrriiieennndd?!!!” 3 year old: “HE’S NOT MY […]

IMG_9838

Chocolate chip banana bread is probably one of my favorite carbs. Besides sourdough bread, restaurant bread, garlic bread, breadsticks… Oh and cookies and cakes and muffins. Those are carbs too right? My mom would make banana bread ALL the time, and still does. Whenever I would visit her house with my girls there was bound […]

Reality vs. Expectation

The other day I was walking with one of my mom friends and we were discussing some of the ‘crazy-ness’ that goes on in our every day life. Whether it be motherhood, wifehood, cleaning the house-hood…We talked about it all. After the conversation I had this constant thought in the back of my mind that […]

Wait what? Am I blogging? Are pigs flying? (Check out the end of this post to find out why I was kind of absent!) Are you guys mad at me? I hope we can still be friends, despite the fact that I’ve been THE worst. But I feel like, or at least I’m hoping, that […]

As I laid in my bed Sunday night and reflected on the day, tears began to fall down my face. It was 11 p.m. and the baby was nuzzled up next to me. If she or I moved, she quickly searched for me to nurse  and then would fall back asleep in a matter of […]

Have you ever been to a Cold Stone? Do those even exist anymore? Besides paying an arm and a leg for a scoop of ice cream, cold stone was THE place to go way back when. There was one right by my house and a lot of times all the cool kids would be like, […]

Salads have become my mommy life saver recently. This is not a fabricated sentence at all, so believe me when I say this… My baby slept 45 minutes total during the day yesterday. That’s right. 45 minutes. Not a solid 45 either, I just added all the minutes she slept and it was 45. I […]

Chocolate Birthday Cake

Chocolate Ganache Birthday Cake via The Diva Dish

Every year on my birthday, I go all out on Dessert. I indulge in something sinfully delicious, and it’s been a tradition that I really really really enjoy. Like really. Of course I don’t wait a whole year to have dessert, but if I do happen to be in a situation where dessert is present, […]

My Journey to a Healthier Me

Life has a weird way of teaching you lessons. Before, I didn’t really know what was good for me. Like a jelly bean green juicy jumpsuit. Yes, yes I did. It’s weird, because sometimes we truly don’t know that what we’re doing isn’t the best for us. Since I was little girl, I’ve always had […]
