my 1st foodie penpal!

This month I signed up to participate in the Foodie Penpals program hosted by Lindsay at The Lean Green Bean! It's such a cool idea - it's like having a pen pal, except you get food in the mail rather than a friendship bracelet! :) Each month you get paired up with two people - [...]

please excuse me…

...as I sterilize my ENTIRE house! Nora's thrush is back (we're on week 3), and I am at a complete loss as to what to do. The Nystatin drops did nothing to help, so we're back to dying her mouth (and my chest) with gentian violet - SOOOO messy! :( I'm spending the day washing [...]

I actually picked out my carseat because it was compatible with the [...]

myoatmeal.com breakfast

Monday mornings are notoriously rough. Actually mornings any day of the week have never been my forte!

Jeff does diaper duty, I nurse her, and lay her back in [...]

post-baby body: month 2

post-baby body month 2

I can't believe it's already time to write this post - I'm not ready! :) I'm going to be completely honest and admit that I didn't put forth much effort in the fitness arena this month. It's crazy how fast I can unravel and fall into bad habits. I think I started running before I [...]
