My Guilty Pleasure

I get so excited for Monday’s ( I know what you’re thinking, what is wrong with this girl). Well, everyone has a guilty pleasure, whether it is a TV show, an activity or food. For me it is the Bachelor on Monday nights. I am off of Mom duty for the evening and settle in […] Read more…

Maintaining a Healthy Lifestyle

I am always being told how lucky I am that I lost the baby weight, and that I look smaller than I was before I became pregnant. The thing is, it’s not luck, it’s a lot of hard work. The first half of my pregnancy the doctor was worried at how much weight I gained. […] Read more…

What’s in My Closet?

When it comes to fashion, I am not the most out-going or fashion-forward and I do not like to spend a lot of money on clothes. I do; however, like to look nice. There are certain basics I always like to have in my closet. Jeans: Not just any jeans, but a pair that fits […] Read more…

WOD Outfit

On a cold, rainy, dreary winter day in Ohio, the only motivation to get to the gym and work-out is a cute outfit. I love wearing bright colors and clothes that accentuate my assets. I think I have nice legs and like to see my arms when lifting weights, but I wear a looser top to […] Read more…

Winter Hand and Nail Care

Prior to Austin, I loved to get my nails done. It was one of those luxuries that just made me feel good. Since he was born, I haven’t had the time or the funds to continue going to the salon, but I still try to keep up with the care at home. Here are a […] Read more…

My Weekly Exercise Routine!

“Exercise gives you endorphins. Endorphins make you happy. Happy people just don’t shoot their husbands, they just don’t.” -Elle Woods, Legally Blonde. This is one of my favorite quotes and has been since I saw the movie. It’s just so true. When I exercise I feel so much better about myself and seem to be a […] Read more…

Family Time

For the middle of February in Northeast Ohio, the weather this weekend was unbelievably warm! The weather reports said 60 degrees on Saturday and my car hit 67 degrees when I was driving home. We spent some quality family time together outside. There is a charity softball tournament that happens every February: snow, cold, sunshine […] Read more…

DIY Towel Bib for Babies and Toddlers

I was visiting my sister-in-law, Rachel, and nieces the other day and Austin wanted to eat lunch with us. He’s been on solid foods for about a month now, so she gave him some applesauce, which he devoured. However, this post is not about babies and solid foods or what he was eating. It’s about the […] Read more…

Austin and the Cats

Once Austin was born, I was a little nervous as to how the cats would react. My cats are very different from each other. Penny, a Russian Blue, is four years old. Piper, a Brown Tabby, is a year younger. Penny is very social with many dog-like qualities and Piper is skittish and terrified of […] Read more…

Baby Friendly Entertainment Center

  So now that Austin is 6 months old and sitting up on his own, I know that rolling, crawling and walking are coming soon. I have been trying to figure out how to baby proof. One of the areas I was stumped on was my entertainment center. It was far from kid friendly. Because […] Read more…
