road trip must haves1

This summer I’ve travelled solo with Moosh a couple of times. Well, guys, I’m a freaking pro these days! And we’re taking one last small trip. And while I’m putting together our travel necessities, I decided to share our go-to road trip list! 1. A LeapPad (and/or iPad). We bring both. Especially on a long […]

a bumpdate! 17+ weeks!

OK, so compared to when I was pregnant with Moosh, I have been seriously slacking in the documentation of this pregnancy. Perhaps that’s because there hasn’t been much to document, other than the nonstop illness. But other than the hyperemesis, this pregnancy has been healthy. Well, at least for the baby! The Bump — This […]

A few weeks ago Moosh and I travelled to Cincinnati to meet up with Justine, our photographer, who documented our elopement in Maine. Yeah it’s complicated. She visits family every year in Cincy, but lives in Maine, where we got married 3.5 years ago. It’s close (enough) for us to make the trip for some […]

it takes a village

After Moosh was born, it became crystal clear that the saying “It takes a village to raise a child” is 100% true. I was, and forever will be, eternally grateful for everyone who brought over a meal or sacrificed their time to come clean our house and do the laundry. We even had several family […]

I’d like to report that over the last couple of weeks my health has taken a dramatic turn for the better… but instead, it’s gotten even worse. My ‘morning sickness’ is being treated with 3 different medications at the same time, and I’m still throwing up an average of 3 times a day (on a […]

Pregnancy has taken over my life, friends! Seriously. I’m sick pretty much all of the time (truly, very, very, sick). But as much of a cluster that this pregnancy has caused these last few months, I’ve also managed to fit in some happy to our lives. And I’ve been quiet about ALL of it… because […]

Happy Fourth Of July Weekend!

the fourth

Stay safe. Have fun. And celebrate with the ones you love! Looking back at this picture from last year, it’s hard to believe how much older Moosh is! And that it’s been a WHOLE YEAR since my sister-in-law visited us from Denver! Though we won’t all be together this year, we’ll still be going to […]

the truth about this 2nd pregnancy //

My pants started to get tight prior to even finding out I was pregnant. Which totally made sense once I found out I was pregnant. However, that happens FAST with a second pregnancy! Dang! People weren’t kidding! Morning sickness that lasts all day and taking care of a crazy ass toddler is hell on Earth. […]

The other day on Facebook I shared that I called my kid an asshole — and meant it. And I started thinking about all the people I likely pissed off; all of the moms (& dads) who would never dare call their kids an asshole, let alone share it on social media. But truthfully? They’re lying. […]
