My Birth Plan

At first I said I was having no birth plan and just winging it like I do the rest of my life. While that is still true to some extent, I realized having a tentative plan can help. As we all know, childbirth is never convenient or expected. It can happen a month early, or it can happen 2 weeks later than expected. You can go in hoping for a natural birth and end up needing a c-section. You just never...

Week 27 & 28 Pregnancy Update

HOW FAR ALONG? 27 and 28 weeks pregnant! DUE DATE… February 26, 2018. HOWS Mama DOING? Good! Just bigger belly over all and feeling it. I definitely feel pregnant. The first thing people look at is my belly when I’m in public. It cracks me up and I love it. People have also started rubbing and touching it asking when I’m due, I oddly don’t mind that, though! Week 27: had a really bad case of round ligament pain one...

Holiday Gift Guide for Him

Why… Why is shopping for men SO.DANG.HARD? I’ve always had trouble with it, but it’s even harder when your man buys things he wants/needs when he wants or needs them.

For the Fitness Lover: Foam Roller – this is a must for stretching...

Healthy Protein-Packed Banana Bread

Banana bread reminds me of my childhood, especially around this time of the year. Growing up right around the holidays, our neighbor would bake everyone on the block...

6 Months Pregnant Update: Weeks 23-27

My sixth month of pregnancy has come and gone JUST.LIKE.THAT. I am currently in my 7th month now, as I turn 28 weeks pregnant on December 4th, 2017. Part of me feels as if pregnancy is going so slow, but the other part feels like it’s flying by. Weird how that works, huh? Before I know it, I’ll be going into labor and meeting my little man! INSANE! It has been a crazy month with moving, traveling, holiday’s, etc. so...

Holiday Gift Guide for Her

I love buying gifts for other people, but for some reason I also find it extremely challenging. Luckily if you feel that way too, I’M HERE TO SAVE YOU! Cue: a holiday gift guide for her. Shopping for gifts is always about the specific person you’re shopping for. Every person has different interests, different needs, different styles, and more. So, I came up with gift ideas for various types of women. Don’t worry, the men’s gift guide is coming soon...
