tech baby

Figuring out your new baby can be a daunting task, and when your pediatrician asks you how many wet and poopy diapers your newborn is having, it can be hard enough to remember what day it is, let alone the number of diapers your baby has had. When we got pregnant, we got some great [...]

One Word Wednesday: spin

10k kickstart

My husband recently started training for his first half-marathon, and seeing him dive into a training program got me thinking about what my post-baby goals should be. I originally had been searching for a 5k to tackle at the end of the summer, but his commitment motivated me to stretch myself. I decided to sign [...]

a whirlwind weekend

Another great weekend on the books at the Murnan house! We were SO busy, and Nora was an absolute trooper keeping up with us! With our marvelous weekend and our marvelous baby, it's only fitting that we join HealthyDiva's MIMM! So what made this weekend so marvelous? 1. Jeff, Nora and I toured 4 gyms [...]


Today's blog challenge from Liv, Laugh, Love is on the topic of faith. I immediately thought of a conversation I had with my mom while rocking Eleanor in her nursery. I had tears in my eyes looking down at my perfect little girl, and my mom asked me what I was thinking. I couldn't say [...]

I don't have a specific goal weight or measurements, but I'm going to use them as one example of monthly measures of progress. I was 123 lbs when I got pregnant, but I don't have any "before" measurements. I'm [...]

follow friday

I first started blogging as a personal release, but Makingmine grew as I started regularly reading other bloggers. Now checking my blog feed is just as much part of my morning routine as my cup of coffee. Want to know a few of my "must reads?" 1. Coffee Cake and Cardio I actually found Ashley's [...]

baby & me

Twice a week Nora and I head out to the hospital where I delivered to attend Baby & Me classes. Officially, it is a breastfeeding support group. Unofficially, it's an opportunity for new moms to get out of the house, put on clothes that aren't milk stained, and have some adult conversation :) I'm not [...]

notes for nora

Today's blogger challenge from Liv, Laugh, Love is to write a post about music. I thought about writing about my favorite running songs, but I just couldn't commit (maybe that'll be a post for another day). Instead, I've decided to share about the music of being a mom. When we brought Eleanor home from the [...]
