Hello there! I'm climbing out of my cave and thinking about posting again regularly on my blog. If you scroll down a teeny bit you'll see that I haven't posted since October 1, 2013. Yikes! So what's new with me? Well I am still a working mom of two boys. Not long after my second… Continue reading Hello Again.
Little Brother is Here!

I was a little bit concerned since I don't eat meat except fish and being pregnant… Continue reading Pregnancy & Protein
Bump Watch – 32 Weeks
This week I am 32 weeks along. Only 8 more weeks to go. The time sure is flying by! Things I am looking forward to post-pregnancy, in no particular order: Wearing regular pants instead of pants that come up to my boobs Wearing shirts and dresses that don't tie around the back People not staring at… Continue reading Bump Watch – 32 Weeks
