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 […]

24 Day Challenge – Week 1

I am constantly looking for ways to improve my nutrition and eating habits. I read frequently. I have many leather-bound books and my house smells of rich mahogany. (Ron Burgundy, anyone?)

ellie lynne.

My blogging hiatus has come to an end. I’m sitting on the couch with another super squishy baby on my lap. She looks just like her big brother. And I was nervous about having another baby. Would I love her like I love Jack? Would my heart be divided? Was it fair to either child? […]

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 […]

the dark side.

When I was pregnant with Jack, Spencer Pratt and I were trying to figure out ways that I could keep working without putting love nugget in day care. I knew it would require quite a bit of sacrifice and commitment to motherhood and nursing to stay with both, but it was too early to retire […]
