Preschool lunch ideas

This post is sponsored through my partnership with Bitsy’s Brainfood.  The smell of sharpened pencils, textbooks, and notebook paper is in the air. Back to school season has officially arrived! While I admit that there are days where I’m SO thankful for the hot lunch option, for the most part, I enjoy putting together Liv’s […]

Fetal Echo Update

(When things are getting a little crowded in there!) Giant sigh of relief from yesterday’s appointment. Thank you again for all of your heartfelt comments, thoughts and prayers leading up the echo. We appreciate it so much, and I wanted to share an update with ya: Baby’s VSD is “very small.”  Our fetal echocardiogram was […]


  “Mom, where are we driving?” “We’re going home.” “WRONG! We’re going to get an acai bowl!”   (After a feral cat ran away when she tried to pet it.) “Cats hate people. It’s their job to hate people.”   “Last night I had a dream I was being chased by a tiger. I was […]

Family: How workouts have changed in the third trimester

Round 2! Heading towards the finish line (which is really the starting line…) Things are slowing way, way down over here. It’s a quick transition from second trimester honeymoon period to the third trimester slump. For motivation, I’ve been reminding myself of how good it feels to work out, and how great I feel afterwards. […]

Weeks 29-31

and feeling like I’m ready?! (Or at least as ready as I’ll ever be.) It’s weird because as much as I love being pregnant- even with the second pregnancy, which for me has hit faster and made me slower- every time I feel her kick, I just think “I want you to be here already.” […]

Best pregnancy stretches

My neck… my back… My neck and my back. Ok, and my glutes, hips, and round ligament pain, but they can’t really make a hip hop song with that. 😉 During this pregnancy, while I’m fortunate that things have been overall very pleasant and enjoyable, I’ve definitely had some aches and pains. It comes with […]

Family: Breastfeeding supplies

Hi friends! I got a request to write about breastfeeding supplies, so I thought I’d post some of my faves in case you are looking to set up your arsenal, or if you have any tips/ideas to share! I’m not really going crazy with a bunch of breastfeeding gear/stuff for baby #2 for a couple […]

Family: Weeks 27-29

Random thoughts/things that I’ve noticed: -I’m definitely sloooowwwiwng down. Naps have always been one of my favorite things, and I’ve been indulging pretty often lately on the days that Liv will nap. If I can get a lot of my work done in the morning and at night, during Liv’s nap I’ll tie up some […]

How do you get your kids to eat vegetables?

This post is sponsored through my partnership with Bitsy’s Brainfood. We’ve always been thankful that for the most part, Liv is an adventurous eater. She loves things that I didn’t enjoy until my 20s (like quinoa, artichokes, pho, chia pudding, and green juices to name a few), and I’m glad that she’ll at least try […]

Second Trimester Faves

Hi friends! Thank you again for all of the kind and wonderful wishes on yesterday’s post. We sincerely appreciate it, and I will definitely keep you updated as time goes on. <3 It’s so hard to believe that we’re already in the 3rd trimester! While some part of me feels like I’ve been pregnant forever […]

28 week ultrasound update

Hi friends! Hope you had a wonderful weekend. Ours was a great time spent together, but Friday morning was a mix of positive and not-so-ideal news at my ultrasound appointment. I figured I’d share an update with you all since so many of you offered to send well wishes, prayers and happy placenta moving vibes […]

How workouts have changed in the second trimester

Round 2! Slowing down a bit, but still going strong. <3 Second trimester is usually when things need to be modified for pregnancy, and I’ve found that with a few simple changes, I’ve been able to keep up my activity levels, teaching and workouts. I’m thankful that I still feel energized (for now) as I’m […]
