A Sneak(er) Attack

I could seriously eat frozen yogurt every day, especially in the summer! I can’t say the same for K–All he wanted was the little m n m’s. He literally picked them off this with fingers! These native slip ons have been awesome this summer for his little piggies! We decided a little summer rain wasn’t going […]

My Bravest Public Act

Diapers and Diamonds talks mom bathing suits. No, I’m not splitting an atom or barreling into a burning building to save anyone, so this is definitely not the bravest public act, but, to me, this is an edge-of-a-precipice moment.  I am putting pictures of myself—IN A BATHING SUIT—on the Internet.  I may have lost my […]

I Just Wanna Wear a T-shirt!!!

As you read the title of this post, I hope you did so with a pleading whine, because that’s the tone I’m feeling most days.  Dressing up is exhausting.  Work is exhausting.  Kids are exhausting.  Sometimes I just don’t want to do all this adulting.  I want to binge-watch Netflix in my underwear and Facebook-stalk people […]

A Midi Movement (Or The Death of The Yoga Pant)

Ok, so when I use the word death I am being a little dramatic, but let me say this—as someone who has made yoga pants synonymous with pants, I think this calls for a flare of drama. Since my son was born almost two years ago, my collection of what were once only workout pants […]
