Happy Monday guys! On Friday we were fortunate enough to be invited back to experience Jack’s Pumpkin Glow in Fairfax. We had such a fun time last year, we couldn’t wait to go back. We did decide to leave Luke with a babysitter this year since he goes to bed at 6:30pm![Read more…]
We are in full teething mode over here, so today’s Frugal Friday post is devoted to this.
Happy Tuesday! I’m on the train heading back home after a wonderful NYC trip with my sweet friend Katie. Look out for a recap later this week of where we wined and dined![Read more…]
Well, we made it to Thursday guys! Hope your week has been treating you well. I feel like this week flew by. It’s hard to believe that our Labor Day weekend trip to Omaha, Nebraska for our dear friend Meg’s wedding was almost three weeks ago![Read more…]
Happy Thursday! Anyone else feel like this week just flew by? Here are some of the things that are making me smile. As always, please feel to play along in the comments. 🙂[Read more…]
Happy Tuesday before LABOR DAY WEEKEND. Can you believe it people, we are actually approaching Labor Day weekend? I cannot.[Read more…]
On Saturday, Luke turned 1. (Cue the tears and gasps of how time absolutely flew). We still cannot believe that our “baby” is a year-old now and we are still in the post ” birthday party and weekend visitor” glow today.
Auntie Christy and Auntie Danielle flew up for the big par-tay and it was great to have them visit for the weekend.[Read more…]
A couple of weeks ago, our clan headed down south to Atlanta to visit my brother and his family. We made the most out of our four days there, that is for sure!
Here are some photos if you would like to see.[Read more…]

- And here is to you, August. Otherwise known as Luke’s Birthday Month!!! I cannot quite believe that he will be turning 1 in 2 weeks. It is absolutely shocking to me. More on that later. 🙂 One of the things that I really wanted to do post giving birth, was get back into shape at my own speed and capacity. This included getting back into my yoga practice. I have to say I am pretty pleased with my journey so far. I’m building strength, testing my flexibility again, and definitely feel stronger in my upper body. One of the things I knew I needed to work towards again was feeling like I could successfully finish hot power yoga class. I immediately started going to slow flow yoga classes and a hot slow flow yoga classes as soon as my OB gave me permission, but a HOT POWER YOGA CLASS was the goal. I am proud to report that I have gone to a handful of these classes and felt good (and sweaty and like the class kicked my butt!) One of the things that I knew I needed to upgrade was my yoga mat, given how much I knew I would sweat and how active I would be in class. I found this information extremely helpful when deciding which mat to buy. I loved all the in-depth reviews and loved the comparison infographic. I especially loved the importance the researchers put on eco-friendliness in terms of the different yoga mat offerings. I ultimately decided to buy my yoga mat from Lululemon and I’ve been very pleased so far.
