the nanas are here + Friday Faves

Hi friends! Happy Friday! Hope you are having a lovely morning. What are you up to this weekend?

Everyone at our house is happy because the nanas made a surprise visit yesterday. I’ve been in a little bit of a funk lately, so when they said they were driving up from Tucson, I started crying because I was so happy. We’re fortunate that they’re driving distance (or a Southwest sale fare) away, because it hasn’t always been the case. Liv went nuts when she saw them, and we’re so excited to spend some time together this weekend.

I’ve been focusing on slowing down a bit this week, spending time with Liv,

Third Trimester Faves

Hi friends! Here we are at the end of the third trimester, and I feel like I’m waiting for a giant pot of water to boil. Every night when I get Braxton Hicks, I’m like, “IS THIS IT?!” and alas, it is not. Such a tease. No idea when the party will be starting, but […]

Total Body Bootcamp Circuit

Hi friends! How’s the day going so far? I had a chiropractor appointment this morning (sweet relief!), stopped to grab some groceries with noodle, and we’ll probably swim in the bay later today. Some pics from lately: A Mad Beet date with Livi (I got the “Public Lemony” juice and she got the “Acaiwol Nation” […]

Focus On: 21dayfix

Another Beachbody workout down! A group of lovely ladies and myself just wrapped up 21dayfix this past weekend. Since some of us were doing the original workout, others were doing the Extreme, some were doing the meal plan, and others (including myself) were not, the group was really focused on clean eating and group motivation. […]

I dream of sashimi + Friday Faves

Hi friends! Happy Friday! Latest post on the Family page is here.  What’s going on this weekend? We don’t have many plans (Livi has more plans than we do between a party and ballet) and it will be nice to relax and get some things done around the house. I’ve already requested to be beach […]

Family: Weeks 35-37

A little trip down belly memory lane: 8 weeks (when I thought I was totally showing already) 17 weeks: and now, 37 weeks and feeling…. Ready! Even though I think I still have at least another 1 1/2 to 2 weeks left.  Random thoughts/things that I’ve noticed: -I’ve been having Braxton Hicks contractions almost every night […]

One-pan chicken with tomatoes, basil and feta

Hi friends! Happy almost-Friday! Don’t forget that tomorrow is the last chance to get your lotus tank. All the info is HERE. Yesterday definitely felt more like summer than fall, and more like a weekend than a Wednesday because the Pilot was home. He had a lot of “use or lose” leave, so he took […]

Happy Fall! Turn over a new leaf

Hi friends! Happy humpday and happy first day of fall! Even though it’s still 400 degrees here (with lots of humidity), I still feel like I’m in the Autumn spirit. I’m enthusiastically looking forward to plaid shirts, boots, hot cocoa nights, the return of college basketball (YESSSS) and pumpkin-ifying everything. Oh wait, I did that […]
