My Mother, Myself

Who doesn’t love the 80’s?  The big bangs, the slap bracelets, the Bangles.  Music and accessories were on point that decade.  But I have to say, I’m glad that I was a child of the 80’s and not pregnant in the 80’s.  During a time where the hair and the shoulder pads couldn’t be bigger, it […]

Prenatal Fitness: Werk It, Mama

At the suggestion of MB’s OBGYN to get moving and at the suggestion of my ass to get up off the couch, we begrudgingly squeezed ourselves into our sports bras and leggings to actually work out this past weekend.  Daunted by the thought of any sort of jiggling or bouncing associated with running, MB and I […]

College Daze

Ahhhh, college.  A time of mindless eating with no awareness of a not-so-distant-future burdened by slowing metabolism and high cholesterol.   A time of endless sleeping without the notion of insomnia brought on by tuition loan repayment, mortgages, or potty training.  A time of bottomless drinking with not a care for the questionable ethics of the […]

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 […]

Body Type Matters

In my younger and fancy free days, there were really only three requirements when it came to wardrobe choices: trendy, CHEAP and just a little bit risky. I experimented a lot with my fashion choices and was never one to shy away from a piece that was quirky or unexpected. The only thought I gave […]

Olive is the New…

I’m the first to admit that I have a problem: I wear too much black.  I’m obsessed.  Black hides a myriad of transgressions—dirt, baby spit-up, muffin tops—and it looks so consistently sleek.  It’s the richest, deepest, most elegant, and most forgiving of all the colors.  My love-affair with black goes back decades, and I may […]
