Happy Monday babes!  I’m happy it’s another new week to start and Monday!  Am I the only one who does this?  Before I had kids, I mourned the loss of the weekend with serious Sunday blues.  But now, I love that I have a fresh start and a reset button each week.  It’s comforting and […] Read more…

Life Lately // March 2018

Oh hey there girlfriends!  Remember me?  These days I seriously cannot get my life together to save my… life.  This little blog is not the only thing to feel abandoned; my work, my house, my diet, my workouts, basically everything in my life has been the hottest of hot messes.  I honestly have never felt […] Read more…

Body Confidence After Baby

Today, I want to discuss one of my least favorite topics, but one that always seems to be top of mind:  body confidence after baby.  UGH.  Like, the biggest ugh of all time.  This is a sensitive subject, so I am just going to give my two cents on it based on my own experiences […] Read more…

Goal Setting In 2018

  Resolution is such a hard word.  Sure, I make resolutions, but I almost always ditch them by February or March.  This year, I resolve to set goals.  I’m not great at setting goals, mainly because I am afraid of failure.  If I set a goal and don’t achieve it, I beat myself up over […] Read more…

Looking Back on 2017

Happy New Year!  Even though we are a couple of days into 2018, looking back on 2017 is still important to me.  It was a big year for our family, filled with more changes jammed into a small space of time.  I both loved and hated this year.  It was an emotional rollercoaster with hurdles, […] Read more…
