Busy Livin’ with Lil’ Beanies //

June 18, 2016

It’s no secret that being a mom to a toddler and a newborn baby is hard work. Now, more than ever, I have to stick to my routine and my plan to make sure our days run as smoothly as possible. For me, that means writing out a schedule each night for the following day. […]

Weekend Wrap Up //

June 9, 2016

I mentioned yesterday that I got really sick on Friday afternoon. Truthfully, I was feeling a bit ‘off’ on Friday morning. I thought it was from just lack of sleep. Turns out, I had a ‘bug’ of sorts. I took both kids upstairs to my bed and turned on the TV. I thought if I […]

postpartum fitness // wishes + plans

January 17, 2016

I know I’m not postpartum yet, but gosh, I cannot wait to get back to feeling like myself. Don’t get me wrong, I’m giving myself as much time as necessary to heal, postpartum. However, this warmer than usual winter has had me in a bit of a jealous fit from time to time. Especially since […]

Huggies Little Snugglers // Surviving Life With A Newborn

December 13, 2015

With the anticipation of Baby Girl coming in just a few short weeks (wishful thinking, I know), we honestly haven’t done much prepping for her arrival. I learned the hard way the first time around — things don’t go as planned and you actually need very little to take care of a newborn. The one […]

Snack Good. Feel Gooder.

December 5, 2015

Moms. We’re responsible for keeping it all together, so to say. And friends – I’d be lying if I didn’t say I’ve dropped the ball a time or two daily during this pregnancy. I won’t forget important things, like feeding Ari. But… I’ve been known to forget to actually eat for myself. Until it’s too […]

On The Go Snacks with Perfectly Simple

August 29, 2015

Last week I shared our Road Trip Must-Haves (when travelling with a toddler). And then we travelled. And each and every one of those items was a must-have! Seriously. Well, one thing I didn’t anticipate was (finally) getting my appetite back. So a pregnant mama? hungry in the car? Enter my newest healthy, on-the-go, snack […]

running // the cheap sport.

April 8, 2015

I used to think that running was the sport that required little monetary investment. All you need is a pair of shoes and an open road. Right? Wrong. Oh so wrong. Sure, you need shoes. But the more you run, the more often you need to replace your shoes. And only the right shoes will […]

Fat Tire Bike Ride and Wine Tour.

June 21, 2011

 Tweet A week ago we did our first wine tour — on a bicycle! I found out about this wine and bike tour {called the Fat Tire Bike Ride} on Living Social and figured, why not? Others I talked to were… skeptical. Drinking wine and riding a bike!? Seems dangerous. I assured them, no, it […]
