When you have the same sex child for number two, you do not get another shower or a sprinkle. You do however get the chance to buy the things yourself that you wish you had registered for the first time. For me, this meant placing a focus on convenience and sleep. Before Tommy, we were […]

Pregnancy Update: Week 39 | Baby #2

Happy early 4th of July! I took off last week to spend some quality time with Tommy and we 100% enjoyed it. Now that Dad has joined us in Cape Cod, I am of course the second choice but I am OK with that because it meant I got to sleep in today. I wanted […]

Nutty Greens Smoothie Recipe | Sneaking Veggies Into Tommy’s Diet

Getting Tommy to eat a nutritious diet is challenging. Like most first-time parents, I assumed that he would happily eat the freshly roasted veggies I prepared for dinner or green eggs aka eggs with spinach for breakfast. Turns out, I have become one of those moms I was subconsciously side eyeing. Getting your kid to […]

I Need To Stop Working Out

I took a 60 minute spin class 3 days before my due date with Tommy. Afterwards, I’m sure I did nothing for the rest of the day. I no longer have that luxury so I stopped working out/taking classes for the most part. Last night, I was feeling overwhelmed. I decided in May that I would […]

Being a first time mom, you over prepare. You buy too many things, you overanalyze your birth plan, what your eat, and then the second time around, it’s like, “Yep, I’ll figure it out.” You’re too busy with your other child to really prepare. I filmed a what’s in my hospital bag video 3 days […]

This post is sponsored by Stop & Shop. All thoughts and opinions are my own. Grocery shopping is overwhelming. I rarely bring a list which isn’t always the smartest option but it allows me flexibility to buy what’s on sale and in season. I’m also always eager to try new foods, especially if they are […]

There are so many lists online with what you should and shouldn’t do when you’re pregnant. Personally, I think most of them are overrated. This isn’t one of those lists. Don’t eat sushi, they say. I don’t eat raw fish because I have gotten food poisoning from eating raw oysters and it was worse than […]

My Ultimate Baby Registry Guide 2018

Registering for your first baby is overwhelming. I kept asking people for suggestions but tried to be a minimalist, and ended up with a few hits but ultimately, I returned a few things and then bought things with my store credit as I learned what kind of baby Tommy was and what I truly needed. This was […]

Tommy Update | This is Two

It’s been awhile since I’ve done a Tommy update and I’ve been getting a ton of questions so I thought I’d share a little update on the things you guys are interested in. Huge disclaimer: I am a first time mom. I don’t know what I’m doing. I’m just doing the best I can. This […]

How My Obsession With Fitness Has Evolved Since Becoming a Mom

Today’s post is sponsored by Zappos. At 29 weeks pregnant with Tommy, I ran a half marathon in San Francisco. Now at 29 weeks again, I don’t know how I did it. I know why, but I don’t know how my body was able to do it. They say you can continue doing whatever you’ve been doing […]
