Weekend + Last Week’s Workouts

I’m a little late getting to this post but better late than never, right? We had a great weekend and I thought I would share some of it with you guys. We are really getting out of the house a lot so that we can get to know our new city as much as possible! There is a lot to do here and we are learning the food is incredible. (Also, I couldn’t load all of my pictures for some…

Adjusting to TWO

I thought I would write a post about how life is now that I have two little ones. A lot of people told me that when you have your second child it’s not twice as hard but ten times as hard. I agree and disagree with this. A lot of it is as expected. I feel more comfortable with a baby this time around since I’ve done it before. I also enjoy the moments I have more because I know…

We Are Moving – Again

I can’t believe I am writing this post and it’s a really hard one to write but we are moving. Again. After being in Nashville for only a year and a half, we are now making our way to Charleston, South Carolina. It’s hard to believe that in January of last year we moved here to Nashville from Chicago and now we are already moving again. With an extra child in tow! The reason we are moving is a common…

Today I Didn’t Cry

I didn’t cry today. I didn’t shed one tear. Why is this significant? Because yesterday, I cried. Yesterday, I cried a lot. I cried when the baby kept waking up at night and my husband wasn’t there to help me because he’s gone for work. I cried when the baby then woke up at 4 am and fussed for about 4 hours straight. I cried when my toddler hit me and threw water at me. I cried when my toddler…

Mason’s Birth Story

My second labor was very different from my first. With my daughter, Adyson, my water broke naturally and she was born 3 1/2 weeks early (but perfectly healthy!). This time, Mason decided he liked it in my belly a lot more and stuck around for a bit longer. However, we did end up forcing him out since I was induced. Being induced was not something I wanted. Nothing against anyone else who chooses this but I just felt that I…
