The Christmas Card Photo Shoot

I know social media has essentially rendered Christmas cards useless, but it’s a holiday tradition I just can’t give up.  We display our holiday cards proudly as an essential component of the Christmas decor.  To those of you who send me one, know that I absolutely love them and I audibly “ooh” and “ahh” over […]

Baby It’s Cold Outside

It’s that time of year again…temps drop and it’s time to say goodbye for good to warm-weather fashion. I have to say this prospect has me pretty excited. There is something about this season that has me wanting to sip hot chocolate by a fire place all wrapped up in my blanket. And even though […]

Family Halloween Costumes

October is the best month of the year, mostly because of sweaters and pumpkin spiced lattes (#sobasic) and Oktoberfest beers and hot chili.  And Halloween is the best holiday because, well, because of costumes and candy.  Though Erinn will begrudgingly put on a costume if you make her, I am obsessed with dressing up.  Perhaps […]

The Small Things

If you know me personally or follow our blog, you know that I’m Italian.  And we Italians are certainly known for our food, but any pure-blood will tell you it’s not about the mouth-watering, cheesy delicacies we whip up.  I mean, every ethnicity has its specialties.  What makes Italians different is how we look at […]

My First Born

Mother’s Day

We don’t live glamorous lives.  We’re not jet-setters, we don’t attend swanky parties, and we practically live at Target.  We’re moms.  And we’re like every other mom we know.  We stay up nights worrying.  We are racked with guilt.  We’re exhausted.  We are a little heavier than we should be.  We question everything.  We pump […]

And Then There Were Two

I have kept two children alive for four weeks now, so that pretty much makes me an expert on being a mother of two, right? On several of these days, I have managed to both shower and eat lunch, which means I’m winning at momming.  And on one of those days, we actually packed up our […]

They’re Here!

I shaved my legs for the first time today.  I also showered and brushed my teeth before 5pm.  No one will see these things, and they are for no one’s benefit, but for 20 minutes today I wanted to feel normal.  Because early mom life is anything but normal. Erinn and I have had our […]
