You guys! I have risen from the dead. Sort of. And it is all thanks to David Bowie. Yes, the David Bowie. Stick with me here. You know how everybody loves hearing about another person’s dreams? Yeah, like I said, stick with me here. [Read more…]
Holy moly (in Andy’s words). What a long ass recipe title and what a weekend. If you followed along on Snapchat and Instagram, you know what I am talking about. If not, ummm, why aren’t you following along on, like, the one weekend a year I go out with my gal pals???? I understand. I am sure you live a more exciting life than me so you didn’t want to see all the over drinking and over eating I did all weekend long in my beautiful Chi town. (Recap post coming soon). [Read more…]
I’m back from vacation. I think this is my sixth summer going to the Wisconsin Dells with Mike and his family. Now that I get to share this trip with my kids, it has taken on a different level of fun and significance. As much fun as we had, I still came home to a suitcase full of laundry that needs washing.

Well, guys, we met the neighbors and I think it is safe to say we have made friends!

It’s about that time in the post pregnancy phase of life in which I come to realize that all the benefits that come from carrying a baby, i.e. beautiful thick hair, clear skin (and for me, weight loss), have sadly come to an end. The move into the new house kept me preoccupied for a while. But we have many mirrors in this house so I can no longer avoid my own reflection. Big old chin zit. Great. Oh boy, is that the start of a bald spot or receding hairline on the right side of my head? I am 100% sure I am not carrying a baby currently, but that looks like the start of a food baby/beer belly. Ugh!
I have to admit, I did notice this a few weeks ago. It was like I didn’t want to admit it was happening though. I then started to do this weird kind of reasoning with myself. Tell me if you have said some of these things to yourself recently. [Read more…]
