Managing Motherhood

About a month ago I started to feel unsettled with my current life. Don’t get me wrong – I am GRATEFUL for the amazing life I have. My husband works insanely hard so I don’t have to work full-time. My kids are healthy, happy and fun. I am healthy, active and busy. So what the […]

Keeping up with the Ramseys.

This month, Ellie turned 10 months and Jack turned 2 1/2. Jack: – LOVES music and youtube music videos: pentatonix, Daft Punk and Michael Jackson are his favorites. – Favorite movie: Toy Story. He sleeps with a Buzz and Woody doll. Greets you by saying, “Howdy, Padnah (partner)” and “To Infinity and Beyond!” Refuses to […]

24 Day Challenge: Week 3

The challenge ended on Sunday. In typical fashion, I was delinquent in my blogging efforts because I was too busy telling the world I spent the last 24 days sugar-free, dairy-free and gluten-free. I lost over 10lbs. Five inches from my waist and two inches off my hips. To celebrate, I ate the icing of the […]

So long, 2013.

27+

it’s shameful it’s been over a month since my last blog post. I feel like life (this pregnancy especially) is flying by with so many memories and precious moments as a family of three that I don’t want to lose. My mom tells me constantly to write these precious moments down to freeze them in […]

purgatory.

I am currently in purgatory. You know, the place in-between heaven and hell? Yeah. Currently, sitting in a gorgeous apartment with stuff still sitting in my old house. Still in the same city, thank God, but still a huge pain. Especially with a toddler and a Great Dane. I basically scramble around trying to figure […]

Quarter of a Century.

Sorry for the delay in blogging. I turned 25 on Monday. This means I have Alzheimer’s already and they don’t have internet in the nursing home Spencer Pratt shipped me off to live. I can remember being 17, graduating from high school and thinking, “When I’m 25 I’ll get married. Then by 27 have my […]
