Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is

So the thing about parenting is that you end up eating your words.  A lot. About two years ago I wrote this post titled “Are You Crunchy or Soggy?”  I happened to reread this post this week, and I came to two conclusions.  First of all, I was/am annoying.  There I was with my ONE […]

40 Weeks + 5 Days Pregnant with Middle

Well.  Hi. I don’t know why I’m updating, other than just to document that I’m still here. This morning when I woke up, I felt incredibly antsy.  I walked around the house in my bra and underwear and managed to accomplish absolutely nothing over a span of about four hours.  Oatmeal went on a 5 […]

Lola Finished a Whole30!

This will be short and quick, but I wanted to make sure I wrote something about my Whole30 challenge. Not sure what a Whole30 is?  Click on the Whole30 Program and read what is and isn’t eaten. Here is an introductory section taken directly from their website.  (By the way… this is not a membership […]

Some like it raw.

I can’t believe it’s the end of another week.  I don’t know how time manages to fly so quickly even though I have such a slow-paced, easygoing life.  I thought that when I got laid off, my days would really slow down as I eased into being a SAHM with Poppyseed.  And the truth is […]

Glass vs. Plastic

I’ve been thinking that it may be fun to start posting about little things we have begun doing around the house that promote healthy living and wellness.  Most of these things are pretty simple, and to be honest we aren’t really sure how big of a difference they will really make in our lives.  I’ve […]

Go Away Stomach Flu

It has been a rough 36 hours at our house. On Wednesday around 6pm, I started to feel rough.  We were cooking dinner (T-bone steaks and brussels sprouts) and the food smelled, well, AWFUL.  I was certain that either the steaks or the veggies were rotten.  When I took a bite – yuck.  Yep, surely […]

Solid food, I’m no fan.

Poppyseed turned 6 months old in October, and to be honest, I was sort of dreading this little milestone.  I knew that at 6 months I’d have to start giving her solid food. I guess I was dreading it for two reasons…. first of all, we have been in such a great nursing routine.  I […]

Just typing.

Today something weird happened while I was at work. I was sitting in a waiting room, waiting on the opportunity to meet with one of my customers.  I heard the snap of an iPhone camera shutter.  I didn’t think much of it and kept tapping at my computer screen, preparing for the meeting.  But I […]

Lola Gives Her Take on Cloth Diapers

Well, I said I’d give a cloth diaper update at 6 weeks, but I’ve quickly learned not to place deadlines on myself with a baby.  But here, finally, is my take on cloth diapers.  (And here is my original post on cloth diapers.) I really like them!  I feel like they not only save money, […]

First Sick Day

Yesterday was my first Monday to be back at work full-time after having Poppyseed. And, today I took my first sick day.  Not because Poppyseed is sick. Because yours truly is. I like to think that I am a tank and never get sick.  I mean, we eat right, we exercise, we take vitamins.  And […]
