Thing I Didn’t Share Friday (8/2)

Thing I Didn’t Share Friday (8/2)

  1. On Wednesday evening, my friend Lindsay and I went to The Posh Closet’s children’s consignment sale together.  They didn’t have very many options for baby boys, but I did find a few cute things for Michael.  After I finished looking in his section, I had fun helping Lindsay pick out clothes for her daughter (like a precious pink polka dotted raincoat).  I also bought a few outfits for my nieces.  The sale was on the smaller side, but the items that they had were in great condition and mostly brands like Baby...

How to make time for exercise (as a mommy)

How to make time for exercise (as a mommy)

I was really fortunate that I was able to exercise all throughout my pregnancy with Michael.  I was even power walking and jogging up until a few days before giving birth…although some might argue that I was just waddling. After Michael was born, I kind of had my hands full (go figure), and if I had any extra down time, I sure wasn’t thinking about working out. Napping? That was a whole other story. I’d take one of those any day of the week. Regardless of how tired I might have been, my body eventually started to beg for...

Things I didn’t share Friday (5/3)

Things I didn’t share Friday (5/3)

  1. My latest food kick is tilapia (still love my salmon though!).  I’ve been breading it with gluten-free breadcrumbs, which I make by putting some Udi’s bread in the food processor.   A little pepper and a squeeze of lemon along with some veggies, and it is the perfect quick and easy dinner. 2. Lucy has a nasty habit of constantly staring at me.  Not only is it extremely annoying, but it is tremendously creepy.  She rarely (if ever) does it to MT or the baby and specifically targets me…which makes the whole...

Blogs I’m loving lately

Blogs I’m loving lately

  Before I dive into this post, I’d like to wish my dad a very Happy Birthday.  For his sake (and mine), I won’t reveal his age, but I will say that he looks very very young. Happy Birthday, Dad! *** I love reading other blogs, and I’m guessing that you probably do too. (Although if mine is the only one you happen to read, consider me extremely flattered.) Over the past few months, I’ve added a bunch of blogs to my Google reader.  These blogs all relate to health, beauty, lifestyle,  and/or being a mommy. I...

Mini Vitacost haul (video)

Mini Vitacost haul (video)

Hi there! I won’t bore you with all of the technical details, but I started to have some major behind-the-scenes blog issues on Saturday evening.  (You may have read my updates on Facebook and Twitter.)   Luckily, I’m back in business! I’d like to thank my amazing web designer Renee for her help in resolving the issues.  She’s a peach. *** I purchased a few healthy fun things from Vitacost last week and made a short video after I received my order.  I’m sorry that it is a little blurry.  I filmed it in one...

My favorite YouTube channels

My favorite YouTube channels

  For the past year and a half, I’ve been into watching YouTube videos.  I actually got really into them after Michael was born because they are a great way to pass the time during those nighttime feedings (although he only wakes about once a night now!). Not only is it entertaining, but YouTube came in handy when I was trying to figure out how to collapse Michael’s stroller (no joke), and when I wanted to learn how to get our stainless steel appliances super shiny. It even helped me remember the lyrics to the Jem theme...
