Monday Mantra //

May 29, 2017

My mind is straight up mush tonight. We’ve had a whirlwind of a week (and weekend) and I’m just plain ol’ exhausted! I had planned on getting a lot of work done this holiday weekend, but instead I just embraced the moment and kept my laptop shut. While I’m getting us back into a routine, […]

Monday Mantra //

May 22, 2017

I spent almost the entire day in bed yesterday. I woke up well before any human should wake up (like, 3:30am) and went to meet up with some MRTT (Moms Run This Town) ladies to volunteer for the Cleveland Marathon. I was home by 8am, but so exhausted. Like, I took two- 2.5 hour naps […]

Plan The Perfect Birthday Party // Minions !

May 9, 2017

When I planned Ari’s third birthday party, I scoured the web for inspiration. He was dead set on having a Minions party. Admittedly, Minions isn’t my favorite movie. But who’s to argue with a (nearly) three year old?? Not I, friends! In my quest for party inspiration, Ari rewatched Despicable Me, Despicable Me 2, and […]

5 Ways To Get Your Baby To Eat Healthier //

May 3, 2017

Before I get started, let’s clear the air. Just say it with me: “Feeding tiny humans is ROUGH!” Before having kids, all of us (yep, ALL of us!) were all “Oh, I will never let my kids eat that!” Guys. If you don’t have children, never ever make the mistake of saying that! See, I […]
