Last week was crazy. Three nights out (one including my internet soul sistah), playdates, lunch dates, appointments, a photo shoot for my kids…but really, can we go back to the three nights out thing? I’m sure many of you take no issue with spending three weeknights out and about, but OH MY GOD, it’s so […]

That button is genius, right? Thanks for the nice comments about my belly, by the way. I have to admit my favorite was an incoming link about how good I looked for 19 months pregnant. 19 MONTHS pregnant? Hell, I LOOK FANTASTIC. The belly is definitely popping, which is perfectly coinciding with my incessant need […]

A perfect surprise on a rainy Friday evening. Have a wonderful weekend!
If I had to pick one food item that has made my life with a picky and active toddler infinitely better, it would be the smoothies from Ella’s Kitchen. My friend Lauren, who works for Ella’s Kitchen, introduced me to these little wonders a couple of months ago and Wito has been hooked ever since. […]
Hello! Quite a lengthy break I took there, but trust me, you wouldn’t have wanted to hear the ample amounts of complaining coming out of my pie hole. I’m in the 11th week of of a much queasier pregnancy, although this comes as no surprise to those who follow my Twitter updates. (The benefits of […]
