My BIG {scary} Fitness Goal

Hey friends! I thought I’d take a break from mommy talk and focus a bit on a different aspect of my life - fitness! My relationship with exercise has changed dramatically over the past two years (mostly thanks to Mommy Fitness), and I now truly see it as a POSITIVE in my life. My weekly… Continue Reading →

Unicorn birthday party attire

My sweet Everly is 1 year old! We celebrated with a magical unicorn birthday party last weekend, and I'm still on cloud nine. There are SO many people who hold this little girl dear to their hearts. I just love her to pieces! One year is an awesome stage. Kids at this age are just bursting developmentally [...]

Elephant and Piggie The Musical at The Rose Theater Omaha

Yesterday Eleanor and I got a rare afternoon together just the two of us! We used our time wisely and hit up the latest show playing at The Rose Theater. This marks Eleanor's fourth show at The Rose, and now anytime we start approaching downtown Omaha, she asks if we can "pleeeeeeeeeease go to The [...]

just the two {three} of us: the broken, joyful journey to becoming a mom of two

For about 22 months Eleanor and I had a club - just the two of us. We spent 682 days just her and I. Together we navigated the early sleep-deprived days of infancy as I figured out how to be her mom and she figured out how to be my daughter. We reveled in the toddler stage filled with play [...]

grassfed quick facts

I've had a lot of really neat experiences come out of my blogging endeavors, but this month I got the chance to be a part of something really cool and learn a bit along the way. I've been working with Stonyfield for over a year now, and as you know, our whole family (from the [...]

one change i made to be a more attentive mom

If there's one thing I know about myself, it's that I'm not a multitasker. Yes, I've mastered the art of nursing a baby while making lunch for a toddler, but as far as actual mutlitasking {really attending to more than one thing at a time} goes, I'm an utter failure. But that's ok! I've learned [...]

Energize Your Day With Our Hemp Protein Smoothie

*Thanks to Manitoba Harvest for sponsoring this post through my partnership with FitApproach  Mornings start pretty early around here - both girls are usually up by 6:00.

Bottling Up Babyhood

Yesterday at the toddler Mommy & Me class at Mommy fitness, we talked about the emotional aspects of motherhood. The adjustments that take place when you become a mom: the challenges, the joys, the support we all need, and the changes to our self-identity. The timing could not have been more perfect, as my husband can [...]

clean and simple "mom style"

With two little girls to dress, feed, and prep for the day, my own morning routine is often the last priority. And to be quite honest, that has resulted in many, many days spent in yoga pants and last night's pajama top... yes, even in public ;) A couple months ago, inspired by reading KonMari and [...]

car seat safety checklist

Simple four step car seat checklist to ensure your child is safe and secure at any age

We recently upgraded Everly out of her infant carrier into a convertible car seat. Cue the mom sob - "my baby is getting soooo big!" I had a lot of anxiety around this big decision. You hear a lot about car seat safety in the news - we all know not to have our kiddos [...]

Check out this Mommy & Me Play Date perfect for some St. Patrick's Day fun!

smartypants vitamins

I hope you all had a fantastic weekend! We had an absolutely GORGEOUS taste of spring here in Nebraska! It felt so good to soak up the sun and get some fresh air! We took full advantage of the winter reprieve with walks, swinging, and lots and lots of sliding :) I can absolutely tell a [...]

Does anybody else get tired of preparing the same old snacks for their kiddos? Well I certainly do! And recently I've gotten in the habit of grabbing not so healthy options for the sake of convenience. But a well-rounded snack doesn't have to be complicated! When OXO Tot sent me a few pieces from their [...]
