Look, it’s baby’s first Christmas tree! We were only one string of lights short, which Neil was running out to grab when this picture was taken. Despite the fact that she’s looking the other way, she LOVES looking at the tree ....more

3 Months Postpartum

Yes, switching to months because the math is just easier. She’s three months old! She’s definitely not a teeny tiny newborn anymore (I packed up those clothes today), and in the past month I feel like she’s become a little fireball of development ....more

Friday Link-up and Loving Lately

Hi, despite the fact that I’m still rocking one arm (said in Amy Poehler’s “Amber” voice), there’s still quite a bit to be happy about this week so here we go! My baby is rocking all the fuzzy footie pajamas and is so squishy I can’t stand it. She’s also discovered her screaming voice and will randomly throw it out there to keep us on our toes ....more


So it’s been a frustrating week. Yup, screwing around at the gym and sprained my wrist. I won’t go into how, because the mere mention of being injured at CrossFit is enough to puff some hater chests and I really don’t have the energy to defend or rationalize ....more

Paleo Dollar Book Sale!

Okay, so I’m not big on sales or gimmicks, but we were contacted to be part of the Dollar Book Sale, and given I have most of these titles, and love them, I thought I’d pass this deal on so you could get these books for a great price! The caveat? ONE DAY ONLY (TODAY, 11/25) — SO ACT FAST! ...more

Friday Link-up and Loving Lately

Fact: The weeks go by SUPER quickly when you are going to bed with your kid before 9pm. I don’t know if that’s a good or bad thing, but when you are getting at least 6 hours a night, I’m going to call win for the time being — even if it feels like you’re missing out on everything. I didn’t get a chance to do much of anything this week besides work, but here are a few things from this week… It’s snowed several times in the past week ....more

How-To: 02-2008 Jeep Liberty window regulator replacment

If you have a Chrysler/Jeep anywhere from 2002-2008 I guarantee that at some point you are going to one day try to roll up the window, hear a pop, and the window no longer goes up or down with the switch. Almost every time this is a window motor regulator that has failed. Where it has failed can vary, but most commonly some of the plastics in the lifting mechanism has broke or come apart ....more

Old School Blogging

I thought I’d just do some old-school rambling. You know, blogging just for the sake of sharing thoughts and feelings — totally unsponsored and unaffiliated. There’s not enough of that going on anymore ....more

What’s in my makeup bag

So a few months ago toward the end of my pregnancy, I wrote about my health and beauty regimen, or really, my lack of. I thought I’d do a little follow-up as I’ve been trying some new stuff and have a few long-time favorites in my makeup bag that I didn’t share in my last post. I’m one of those people who sticks with what they like until its discontinued ....more

First Halloween

Not a ton of pics, but we had fun! We were trying to decide what to do all week, but realized pretty quickly that we are in the awkward stage of having a kid and not being able to go out with our friends, and our kid not being old enough to understand Halloween in the slightest. We had a costume for her (a pea) but she was in such a good mood I was afraid to risk it to get the costume on her ....more
