Your fitness stories (Jamie, Rebecca, Samantha and Erica)

Yesterday, I write a little post about my Zumba story and put the call out for some of yours. The key to consistency is finding a workout you LOVE and I was so excited to hear about what pushes your workout buttons. I received quite a few awesome comments and stories via email, and thought…

Just what the doc ordered + Friday Faves

Sniffle soup all around!   (Please note the creeper in the background.) Thank you for all of the get-well wishes. I’m still fighting the good fight. Yesterday we laid low, drank lots of tea, watched some Elmo on Youtube while snuggling, and had chicken, carrot and rice soup for dinner. I figured it would be…

In the spirit + Friday Faves

Everyone is in the holiday spirit in our house, especially Bella with her snowflake bandana.  We decked the halls the other night, and it always feels so good to take out our ornaments after they’ve been packed away. Last year was incredibly sentimental because when we’d previously packed them up, we had no idea where…

Friday Faves and Beasts

My favorite beast and I had a movie date last night. We watched “Crazy, Stupid, Love” and I’m not really sure the Pilot liked the “Hey girl…” lines we were quoting while enjoying a shirtless Ryan Gossling. Bella’s: “Hey girl, wanna play fetch?”  The movie was pretty good. I was in the mood for something…

Tips for DOMS and Friday Faves

It’s been quite a while since I’ve tried anything dramatically new or intense -preparing to get pregnant, being pregnant and recovering is a pretty long stint to keep things lower key- so I’m the most sore I’ve been in a long time. From all of the pull-ups I did -and they were modified, but it’s…

7/13: Friday Faves

This candle: I almost always have a candle burning, and picked that one up at the BX last weekend for $4. It smells clean and lovely.  Baby’s first hummus. I made Liv a plain hummus for dinner last night (just chickpeas, water, a little oregano and garlic) and she went crazy for it. We’ve got…

Hi friends! It’s the WEEKEND! Also Father’s Day weekend 🙂 Any fun plans? We’re having dinner at the dadoo’s tomorrow night and I’m scheming up ideas for Sunday with the Pilot.

Happy Meal

Hi friends! How was your Friday?? I’m a little late posting tonight, because it was one of the very few times in my life when I wasn’t sure what to write about. Of course I cried watching the Royal Wedding (as expected- so beautiful), went to work for a half day and ate some very…
