Vega Protein Cashewmilk Yogurt Alternative Review

I am not a vegan but I like to eat a plant-based diet when I can. One brand that really changed my impression on this way of eating is Vega. For nearly 10 years, I’ve been preaching my love for their protein powders and nutritional shakes. They taste the best in my opinion, use quality […]

Connor, Two Month Newborn Update

I’m sharing a two month update for Connor partially for myself and for others who might have a baby younger and wondering, what’s next? Maybe you have a baby the same age and curious if you’re getting more sleep than I am! While every child is different and there is no normal, I love being able […]

Boston Fitness Studios with Childcare and Classes for Moms & Babies

Finding childcare in Boston at a gym has gotten so much easier since I had Tommy. No longer are moms only able to workout at the big gyms but plenty of fitness studios also offer babysitting at select times. I wrote a post 2 years ago on this topic and realized it needed a serious […]

How Much Exercise Do You Really Need?

As a former gym rat who thought I’d get “so skinny” if I ever ran a marathon, I can tell you that the more time you workout does not directly impact how much you weigh or how strong you get. It’s about training smart. This should come as a relief if you are reading this postpartum or […]

20-minute End of Summer Family Friendly Dinner Idea

Nutrition is a science and our beliefs are constantly being challenged when new studies are published. Everyone is doing the best that they can with the information they are given. I don’t buy all organic food but I do try to buy organic when it comes to meat and dairy products. When it comes to […]

How much weight I have to lose isn’t weighing me down

It’s funny how things change in ways you never expected. I fully expected to be overwhelmed with two children but I’m shocked to feel rather stress free. Everything is a phase, I know that now. While both kids may be crying at times, Connor won’t remember and Tommy likely won’t either. One way I usually […]

I regretted that I didn’t document my labor and delivery with Tommy so this time around, I didn’t care how unpretty I felt, I shot video using my phone when I could. Here is my labor and delivery vlog… don’t worry, this isn’t a TMI post so if you don’t want to see a baby coming out, […]

Preparing To Jump Back To School + Our Preschool Commute

This post is sponsored by Zappos. I am very excited about Tommy’s first day of school next week. Back to school shopping has been challenging with a newborn and I’ve been relying on online shopping. When do you think they’ll start offering to have your kids hair cut at your home? Tommy is a very active little dude […]

Baby Safety: TurnAfter2 Campaign

As a social media mom, there are many aspects of my life that I share, but I am always very cautious to avoid being the target of any “mommy shaming.” Anything car seat related is always a hot button issue. Is the baby buckled in the right way? Is the seat secure? Is the child […]

Back To School Shopping Favorites 2018

For the first time ever, I’m looking forward to going “back to school!” Maybe it’s because I finally have a child old enough to go back to school. Tommy will be going to pre-school 3 days a week from 8:30-1pm and I am pretty excited although it is 90 minutes shorter and 10 minutes further […]
