Own your skin. Own your excuses.

Let’s talk about honesty and taking responsibility for where we are at currently with our health. We all have health and fitness goals  whether it be to lose the baby weight, lose weight in general, gain weight or muscle, slim down for a wedding, or perhaps just eat healthier to feel better. Before you dive into […]

7 Months Postpartum + Making Changes

Image 1

Today I am 7 months postpartum. Really, he is already 7 months?! This baby stage has seemed really long some days and to quick other days. I love seeing his little legs kick in times of joy, hear him say mama in the wee hours of the night and see that spark in his eyes when his […]

LONG update on life…life with FPIES

It has been a busy, hectic, tiresome last two months. I haven’t had the energy to write or really know where to start. So much has happened, changed and is still changing. But before I get to lengthy let me just say I knew from the time my son was 3 weeks old that something […]

The One

Jason and Meghan Engagement 274

It’s not our anniversary or anything but I was thinking about my love story because my daughter has been asking to wear my rings and tells me Daddy rescued me from a tall castle. She is really into the Rapunzel story. I can remember going through high school and then college wondering who I would end […]

Dairy-Free Cream Cheese Chocolate Chip Cookies


These cookies are amazing! The cream cheese def makes them a hit. I found some dairy free cream cheese and it is really good. I put it on anything I can. It’s fantastic and taste just as good as the real stuff. Not all dairy free items can taste as great and I still have […]

She would pick […]

Chasing a Clean House Dream

I have always been OCD about keeping up with a clean house. Over the years it’s been reduced to wanting a clean few rooms, a clean room, a clean space and now just a clean counter. Something was ingrained in me from childhood that if chores weren’t completed than I couldn’t have any fun. If […]

Sweet Potato Brownies & Dairy Free Chocolate Frosting


I am now on a dairy free diet due to my son’s suspected dairy allergy and so I have been on a baking spree making whatever I can to keep my sweet tooth happy. I’m learning all these cool acronyms (DF:dairy free) and reading labels like whoa! Plus, it’s been a new eye opening challenge […]

Who is the role model here?


I’ve got a toddler. There are many days and many situations where the things she does really frustrate me. I know most are done out of curiousity and experimentation so to calm me down I really try to focus on that. Loading up her toothbrush with lotion because she wants to see how it taste Hearing […]
