Yesterday was a good day. Like, a really good day. First, I found a Snuza Hero at Target for $40 off. I’ve had one at the top of my “to-get before new baby” list for a long time, and it just so happens this one was a return from online, so it was automatically discounted. […]

a bumpdate! 17+ weeks!

17weekbump

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 […]

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 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. […]

A lot has been happening in life lately. I kind of alluded to the fact that things have been kind of crazy around here. More on that later (sorry). But a week and a half ago I had a chance to kind of set all of that aside and went[ to the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo […]

Oh hey, it’s a week later already. Short work weeks don’t equate to long blog weeks, that’s for sure. Cause I haven’t even had a chance to TALK about our Memorial Day Weekend, let alone sit down and write about it. Saturday  // So those big plans I had to go to yoga, Crafty Mart at […]

I wanna go running. //

It was only a matter of time before Moosh proclaimed that he wanted to go running. I merely suggested going running on Memorial Day, and next thing I knew he was all “Mommy! I wanna go running! I wanna go running!” Of course I didn’t anticipate him actually running. On days when I don’t take […]

Blogging // Authenticity // and the Truth

I created my blog years ago as a space and an outlet for me to share the happenings in my life with myself and a few people who may actually read it at the time. Over the years it transitioned from me being single and living in Syracuse; to Chad and I dating; to us […]
