Breakfast for Two

A simple way to make breakfast for both baby and you. It’s time for my baby to start eating solids, can you believe it?! Instead of buying pre made baby foods full of preservatives, I simply put aside a little of whatever I’m making for myself, blend and feed. Not only is is easier, its…

Shopping for Busy Moms

Oh how I miss the days when it was just me, myself and I on the road headed to the mall to do some shopping for myself. How simple life was! I’d get to drive at my own pace, have my windows down, listen to any song I wanted and spend all the time in…

Outdoor Fun

You’ve got to be to kidding me… it’s the end of September?! This month flew by, and I can’t believe I haven’t posted anything so far this month. Truth is, I have tons of photos ready to go but I just haven’t had a chance to hop on WordPress. Excuses aside, here are some special memories…

Organizing with the U.S.H.

I used to think having a dog was messy. Then I had kids… Wow does the clutter pile up on ya. Now that I have 3, I really understand how messy it can be. Keeping a clean and organized house is practically impossible. I have toys laying around everywhere, clothes in every corner of the house,…

Recovery: My C-Section Story

The photos above were taken about 6 hours after Johnny was born. This was the first time Giada got to meet her new baby brother, a moment in which she had been preparing for months beforehand. It’s amazing how calm he got once she started talking to him, he definitely recognized her voice from all…

John Fox’s Birth Story

You know how people say, “I don’t care if the baby is a boy or girl, black, white, green or purple… as long as it’s healthy”? Well, I had a purple baby. This is the lengthy story of the night I went into labor at 37 weeks & 6 days with Mr. John Fox… I remember…

Currently Craving: Funfetti Crescent Rolls

My daughter came across this recipe on Pinterest. Yes, even she- at only 4 years old- can fall victim to the black hole of Pinterest. So, as Giada would have it, an immediate demanded was prompted for it to be on the menu that day (after threenager comes what…?). I knew she was insistent on…

Dad: The Superhero 

You are so much stronger than a superhero to me. I don’t recall Batman or Superman ever doing all the things you can do all the time and I’ve never seen Captain America fix all the things you know how to fix. Your heart is a lot more bright & shining than Iron Man’s and…

Dear Giada

Dear Giada, I just wanted to make sure you know how much I love you. I know every time I tell you, you say “I know mom, I love you too”, but I really hope you understand how deep my love is for you. You may never understand until you have children of your own,…

Currently Craving: Oatmeal in a Mug

Some things are just better in a mug, am I right? How good does a nice, warm cup of creamy oatmeal sound… Now picture it in a mug, cozied up on a chair with your favorite spoon. (Am I the only weird one who has a favorite spoon?) 😜 I’ve been craving the traditional cinnamon…
