28-Day Blog Challenge

Tomorrow is the big day! February 1st is the start of a new month and a blank slate for your blog. Enter: the 28-Day Blog Challenge. The idea: We all make blogging resolutions, to-do lists and wish lists. But how many of us actually commit to putting some of those goals into action? For 28 [...]

Chasing Her Dream: bama+ry

A year ago this week, I found out I was pregnant. It was the most exciting and terrifying news I’d ever gotten, and I spent the next 41 weeks preparing for my little BabyBug. Now my Audrey is here, all big cheeks and giggles, and she’s the light of my life. I can’t imagine not [...]

Breastfeeding & Pumping…So Far

I *try* not to cross streams too much because this is not a baby blog. But I just put together a huge list of breastfeeding and pumping resources and thought it might be helpful for those of you who are moms, who are pregnant or who are curious about how it all works! If you [...]

Facebook Stalkers, Beware: Clear Your Searches!

How to Clear Your Facebook Searches

I’m always a bit skeptical when I hear people bitching about Facebook or offering conspiracy theories on how this “evil” company is using our information (see “You Oughta Know: Facebook and Your Copyright“) but in this case, I’m about to advocate being very vigilant about one feature. Your Activity Log. Ask yourself this…would you be [...]

You Have to Want it More

On Sunday, it was 86 degrees outside and I was tired from a busy morning. I wanted to sit, watch football, maybe drink a beer and enjoy the last few minutes of the weekend. But I wanted to be healthy more. So I put on my shoes and went for a run. On Monday, when [...]

Stuff So Nice I Bought It Twice

Old Navy Active

This post is sponsored by Old Navy. Check out Old Navy’s Active wear in stores or at oldnavy.com #GetYourActiveON. I have not been this excited to write a review post in a long time. I was offered the chance to try out some of Old Navy’s Active wear line and thought I’d like it. I [...]

I’m launching a 28-Day Blog Challenge in February, and I hope you’ll consider joining! The official link is already published, so you can take a [...]

Strapping the Girls Down

Under Armour Sports Bra

I was, let’s say…well-endowed before I had a baby (see “Your Breasts Look Like Grapefruits“). But man, oh, man, my post-baby body is nuts. In the first few weeks after giving birth, I barely recognized myself in the mirror. Don’t think I’m bragging, though. I would trade for Bs in a moment. Since I don’t think [...]

Let’s Be Pals (App Me, Maybe?)

Welch's Light

The only time I successfully dropped a significant amount of weight, I counted calories. Sure, I saw results on the scale, but I became obsessed with numbers. How much had I eaten? How much had I burned? What was my current weight? (See my “Weight is Just a Number” post with pictures…)It all got to [...]

Right Before My Eyes

On Tuesday, as I drove home from work, I came THISCLOSE to being in a serious car wreck. It was one of those “life flashing before my eyes” moments, and it left me shaky for more than an hour after. It was 100% the other driver’s fault — and it was an egregious traffic error [...]
