Life and Halloween

Holy smokes, I don’t think my life has ever felt so fast paced as it has this year. Last week was really crazy.  I was really busy at work, and then on Friday Oatmeal and I packed up and went to Louisiana for my best friend Anna’s 29th birthday.  (Her REAL 29th birthday… possibly the […]

Poppyseed is 6 Months Old!

6 months!  That’s SO big! So tonight I was nursing Poppyseed after a fun hour of playing and taking the pictures below.  Oatmeal got home from work and laid down in bed next to us.  We were just lying around and talking and I got a little mischievous.  I said, “Honey guess what…I’m pregnant.” Oatmeal’s […]

Busy, busy life…

I feel like the days have just been whizzing by as of late.  Nearly every night I sit down to write a blog, but halfway through I’ll remember I needed to do something work-related or I’ll hear Poppyseed start to move around in her crib anxious for her 10pm feeding.  One thing leads to another […]

Paleo Shrimp Alfredo

Last week I came across a really good recipe for paleo spinach and artichoke dip.  I bought everything I needed to make it, but I got a little overconfident and purchased fresh artichokes rather than the jarred kind. Big mistake.  Artichoke: 1 point.  Lola: 0 points. Yep, it took 4 knives to get beaten that […]

This is the truth and I’m sticking to it – sleep deprivation makes me a nut job.

First of all, Poppyseed has been sleeping much better over the past few days.  I think that she was in a growth spurt or something and that’s why she was waking up at 2am.  I started making sure she was taking good long feedings at 10pm so that she’d be good and tanked up for […]


We are going through a little bit of a rough patch lately.  Poppyseed began sleeping though the night at about 12 weeks old.  It wasn’t consistent at first, but gradually she went from sleeping through the night once every three or four days to being a REALLY good sleeper.  She was sleeping through the night […]

I’m not Superwoman.

Today, someone called me Superwoman for the third time.  For the third time, I felt absolutely ridiculous. I was talking to someone at work, and they know me fairly well.  They know I’m happily married, I’m a new mom, they know my family is paleo and they know I work full time.  They asked me […]

Food Confessions

Oh hi, blog.  Long lost friend.  Let me invite you into my kitchen, where I will recap the conversation that just took place between me and my husband…….   Me: “Um, honey I have a confession.” Oatmeal: “Okay.” Me: “Well I said we would do the 30 day paleo challenge together, with the exception of […]
