My heart is so full after the sweetest weekend with my two boys. I'm feeling spoiled! Mike sent me off to have my nails done on Saturday while he snuck to the store with Charlie to pick up groceries for the most delicious Mother's Day dinner. I'm fairly no frills when it comes to self-care, but … Continue reading first mother’s day.
Oops. It's a Saturday post again, isn't it? Oh well! I was enjoying my post work cocktails too much to muster up the energy to post last night. I made a blueberry simple syrup from Charlie's leftover baby food and mixed that with torn basil, a wedge of lemon, vodka and soda water. It gave … Continue reading the friday post – volume 11
It's been a hectic couple of weeks at our house. Last weekend was full of friends and extra happenings which carried over to this week. There are just phases like that, you know?

I'm the person to whom 'brunch' really means 'second breakfast' because I couldn't possibly wait until 10am to eat for the first time. I'm married to a non-breakfast lover (other than hearty breakfast potatoes topped with an egg … Continue reading an adaptable recipe for muesli.
This article made me chuckle last week. If you haven't been living under a rock, you'll have heard about Kate Middleton stepping out just 7 hours after giving birth looking fit for the red carpet. It's been quite the hit in the news lately, and moms are making hilarious comparisons of their own looks after … Continue reading radiant after birth?
It's Friday! We've had our dear friends and their little girl in town this week so we've gone over to their Airbnb for dinner one night and had them over to our house for another. It's kind of made the week fly by in a daze of Cuban food, extra glasses of wine and fancy … Continue reading the friday post – volume 10
I just had to document this silly little phase. Charlie started scooting around on his belly on Tuesday and it's hilarious. He moves like a little fish! He pushes off with his right leg and pulls himself along with his arms. So funny. Mike told me that yesterday morning he was crawling around on his … Continue reading charlie scoots.
In a large box under my bed lives my mix and match collection of bikinis from the last ten or so years. I pull it out nearly every weekend to throw on a suit for the beach, but I've been having mixed feelings about them lately. I just feel so exposed! I will be forever amazed … Continue reading swimwear for a modest mama.
Mornings can be so hard with a baby, amiright? Honestly, mornings were hard when I only had to get myself ready. Adding a squirmy little guy to the mix has not made it any easier. I've been back at work for nearly four months now, and I've collected a handful of tips to streamline our … Continue reading one small way to make getting ready for work with a baby easier.
