And then she blogged…

About nothing in particular. But better something about nothing than nothing at all. Or something like that… Clearly I am terrible at blogging now. I blame it on my lack of sleep and extremely energetic/time consuming 9 month old. So please direct any complaints to this guy — Speaking of that guy, he is almost … Continue reading

Paleo Apple Crisp

This stuff is AWESOME. No flour, no eggs, no dairy, no refined sugars. Its just the bite of sweet I need with no blood sugar spikes and I’m not hungry 20 minutes later. It tastes so good, you’ll be shocked that it isn’t bad for you! Seriously make this. I got the recipe (along with … Continue reading

6 days in

About a week in and things are ok. No shopping, which actually feels great. It’s allowing me to take stock of what I really want rather than constantly accumulating the so-so stuff. Even after just one week its refreshing that the “I wants” are dying down as I have a month to think about whether … Continue reading

Starting Fresh (again)

I lied. I wasn’t ready to blog. I was delusional from sleep deprivation. So 5 months later here we are. Still incredibly sleep deprived, but I can function now. And now that I’m starting to come into my own in this mommyhood world I am ready to make some changes. I am putting my hopes/goals … Continue reading

New Year, fresh start

It’s been a while… The last time I posted it was 2012 and I was 34 weeks pregnant. Fast forward to today and its 2013 and we have an 8 week old baby boy running our lives! Meet Andrew Jacob Quail, born November 8, 2012! We are SO in love. Its been a crazy whirlwind. … Continue reading

34 weeks and counting…

here we are at 34 weeks. i thought i felt large at 26 weeks, HA. i’ve hit that infamous point of “i don’t want to be pregnant anymore”. while i’m continuously grateful for this miracle, i’m ready for the miracle to relocate from my stomach. breathing, sleeping, eating, and a seemingly never ending list of … Continue reading

Feathering Our Nest

as if i wasn’t lucky enough to have a beautiful shower back in maryland a few months ago, this past weekend my sweet friends threw baby and i another gorgeous shower here in cali. the shower was absolutely gorgeous, nothing short of pinterest worthy, my friends quite obviously have impeccable taste. they appropriately themed the … Continue reading

fall style

the daylight is changing and that means its time for my favorite season (although i haven’t seen a “real” fall in about 3 1/2 years.) its still in the high 70’s/80’s during the day in these parts, but its nice and cool in the evenings, giving me false hope. regardless, my roundness prevents me from … Continue reading

grateful

i just want to say thank you to all of our amazing friends and family who have been supporting us as we prep for baby Q’s arrival in a few weeks. i am truly overwhelmed, humbled and feel completely undeserving. all your generous gifts of baby essentials (and ridiculously adorable non-essentials), dinners cooked or delivered, … Continue reading

wiped

i feel as if i am back in my 1st trimester. we’re at 30 weeks and i’m exhausted. by the time i get home from work i can barely walk the dog and come up with something for dinner, let alone throw together a blog post. i will come back eventually, but in the meantime … Continue reading
