Mocktails!

Mocktails!

I had a recent request from a newly pregnant mama for mocktails. My apologies for having all of these cocktails and none for the pregnant, nursing or those who just maybe want a non alcoholic drink! I pretty much hated all drinks including water during my pregnancies, so I sometimes forget others who want to [...]

At Home Mani

At Home Mani

I have been doing my own nails since high school. Occasionally I will splurge on manicure at a salon when I get a pedicure, but that is few and far between. This year I think I have only gotten one pedicure out, so getting pretty good at doing my toes too! An at home manicure [...]

Mom Bod

Mom Bod

Everyone has a different image that pops into their mind when they hear "mom bod". I will admit that I was scared of my body changing when I got pregnant and didn't know what to expect. I knew my body was going to do whatever it needed to do to grow my baby. I didn't [...]

1 to 2 Transition

1 to 2 Transition

So, the transition to two kids was not "easy" but honestly it was "easier" than zero to one kid for me. Let me explain... I thought I was super ready to have a baby, I had my first baby when I was 35. Both my husband and I were a little "older", we were well [...]

I Like Piña Coladas!

I Like Piña Coladas!

Piña Coladas used to be saved for tropical vacation. I am not really into sweet or frozen drinks for that matter. Plus I know how much sugar is in this drink, so I shy away, even if it sounds great. So I decided to create a healthier version! Plus this is a great (virgin) treat [...]

What’s in my Diaper Bag

What’s in my Diaper Bag

When I had my first baby, I had a HUGE diaper bag, and I brought everything with me and still felt like I always needed something else. By the time my second baby arrived, I got really really good at leaving the house with only the essentials (diapers and wipes), pending on the trip of [...]

Mommy Fog

Mommy Fog

Recently I had a few weeks, where I was just overwhelming exhausted all of the time. I just couldn't seem to snap out of it. It didn't help that the baby wasn't sleeping great and most nights I ended up on the couch with the dog. Oddly enough the baby sleeps better with my husband, [...]

Mommy Survival Tips

Mommy Survival Tips

With two babies, two years apart, I have picked up a few things along the way. Life is still a daily circus, but I can pretend to have some control over things. Don’t fold clothes-I folded the girls clothes until our oldest started to dress herself. In that processes she would mess up all the [...]

The time is now!

The time is now!

I have wanted to start a blog for at least 10 years. About 6 years ago, I remember being in New York for New Years and meeting a gal who was a food blogger. I was so envious of her! It not only sounded like the coolest job ever, but she really seemed to love [...]
