Wistful about working

By |August 12th, 2016|Daily Confessional, Momming|1 Comment

Like any job, there are positives and negatives to being self-employed. Maternity leave is both. The positive is that I can choose to take as long a leave as I’d like.

August Resolutions – We’re getting better at this!

By |August 2nd, 2016|Resolutions|5 Comments

I’m a little late writing out my resolutions, but that’s how I roll these days…late.

I can’t say that I was the world exploring, regular meal eating, functional human I’d set out to be in July, but as the month progressed I got better at it. Every half-hour outing to a local café for a latte […]

Hello July.

First of all let me give a huge shout out to all the mommy bloggers out there who somehow find time to write about their lives, take beautiful photographs, eat meals that are made of real food and wear clothes that look quasi presentable. I’m so not there yet.

New parentdom is totally kicking my […]

Welcome to the World, Ethan Dean!

This post has been two weeks in the making. I haven’t had all that much time to write (and when I have I’ve mostly used it for sleep), so I’ve stolen a few moments here and there to cobble together our birth story.

Before I was pregnant I loved a good birth story blog. Then I […]

Ya’ll I could totally have a baby this month.

I probably won’t. My due date is the first week of June, but it’s possible.

The (Big) Fella and I are pretty much set in regard to baby prep. We’ve got The Little Fella’s crib built, stroller ready, and his changing table full of diapers and freshly laundered clothes. […]

March 2016 Resolutions

By |March 1st, 2016|Resolutions|2 Comments

Happy March!
I have no particular reason to love March, but I do. It means spring is upon us and as much as I’ve appreciated the mild winter we’ve had (at least in NYC) I’m ready to waddle around NYC in dresses—they’re a bit more comfy on my ever-expanding body.

Have I mentioned that I’m huge? I’m […]

I promise that my blog won’t turn into a “let me talk about being knocked up 100% of the time” diatribe, but being pregnant is probably the most interesting thing going on in my life these days and there are somethings I’ve been thinking about for a while now: No one tells you about the […]

Happy New Year!!!

If I had to pick any one holiday to be my favorite holiday it would be New Year’s Day. There’s a lot of pressure on New Year’s Eve to have a date, look stunning, and have somewhere cool to go, but New Year’s Day is pure fresh start. I love a fresh start […]

December 2015 Resolutions

By |December 6th, 2015|Resolutions|4 Comments


I guess you could say that I lied. I did not get to update during our vacation. Turns out the resort Internet was not as reliable as I’d hoped and when it was working I was too tired from a day of lounging about to think clearly.

So, while I’m late, I’m going to discuss my […]
