the truth about this 2nd pregnancy //

June 30, 2015

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. […]

I wanna go running. //

May 27, 2015

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 […]

We have been busy busy bees as of late. But we’ve also managed to sneak in weekend naps and late PJ mornings on the weekends as much as possible. This weekend, however, may be the exact opposite. There are so many exciting things going on and I’m going to try and squeeze in as many […]

Cleveland Marathon // Real Talk

May 14, 2015

OK, friends. It’s time to get real. I’m currently signed up for the Cleveland Half Marathon, which is this Sunday morning… … and I have NOT properly trained. At least not as of recent. As of recent my training runs have been short. Like at most, 4 miles. Even though I was regularly running 10+ […]

weekend wrap up //

May 6, 2015

After last weeks drama that nearly put Moosh into the hospital for an overnight stay, we welcomed the weekend with open arms — and hesitation. Cause who knew WHEN this kid would have another episode, right? Well he definitely wasn’t feeling himself Friday. In fact, after a quick trip to Café O’Play where we pretty much […]

weekend wrap up //

April 14, 2015

Friday  // After a long day at work and a long day at the sitter for Moosh, we wound up at our favorite local indoor play place, Café O’Play, to try and burn off whatever energy he had left. He had fun, but that quickly turned into a meltdown. So we headed home thinking the […]

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 […]

life lately //

March 11, 2015

The last month has virtually flown by. It’s been a whirlwind of exhaustion, cold, fun, illness, and what was nonstop marathon training. Here’s a recap of what we’ve been up to as of late: 1. It turns out my kid is afraid of giant plants. A few weeks ago Moosh and I went up to Cleveland to […]

why I’m no longer running a spring marathon //

March 3, 2015

I must admit — I bit off more than I can chew. There are several reasons I’ve decided not to run the Pittsburgh Marathon. But the main reason is that it is taking away from time with my husband and son. Don’t get things twisted — Chad is incredibly supportive of my aspirations to run […]

Manitoba Harvest Hemp Hearts Review + Giveaway //

February 17, 2015

In our house, we are always looking for new ways to get healthy, sustainable, protein and nutrient-packed superfoods in our diet. We eat chia seeds by the spoonful. Seriously. Fueling our bodies for workouts (and just fueling for the day, in general) is majorly important. I’m learning this is especially important during marathon training. Yikes! […]
