Recent Eats + A Running Update + Nanny Talk

Morning guys! How’s that for a long blog post title?! I guess I have a lot to say today! :) First up, I’m back on the grain salad bowl train for lunch – I almost added some soft boiled eggs to this a la my Kale and Quinoa Salad with Soft Boiled Eggs, but I had already had eggs for breakfast and that seemed like a lot of eggs, so, chickpeas for Continue Reading …

Valentine’s Day Recap

Hi guys! I hope you had a nice Valentine’s or Gal/Pal-entine’s Day! Ours looked a little different this year vs. previous years… :) (Please ignore our hot mess of a couch in the background, lol… new parent life/the tidying struggle is real.)

Rainy Weekend

Hi guys! We had a really rainy weekend over here, and unfortunately Matt and Riese both came down with bad colds, so we didn’t do a whole lot! I did get out for a nice outing on Saturday morning, though – my brother’s girlfriend was in town and she loves yoga and brunch as much as I do, so we had a fun girl date. We went to a 9 a.m. yoga class so I Continue Reading …

Food Highlights

On Friday, I ate some leftovers and went to bed early with Riese while Matt stayed up and ordered food with a friend who was over. Saturday morning, my friend Jackie came over with brunch! Yay Continue Reading …

Week in Review

Hi guys! Whew, it has been a busy week over here trying to balance mom time and work time. I have a feeling this will continue to be a challenge. :) In exciting news, though, we are finalizing a contract with a new nanny (after our original one bailed on us last minute – see Monday’s post if you missed it), and I actually like her more than our Continue Reading …

Thank You! + Recent Eats

Wow, you guys. I cannot thank you enough for the outpouring of support and kind words that you shared on my last post sharing some of the mom struggles I’m having right now. It means so much to me to know I’m clearly not alone in this, and I know that many other women will read those comments and know that they are not alone, either. This mom stuff Continue Reading …
