Running While Pregnant

I’m a big advocate of making fitness a priority during pregnancy. I have several reasons, the biggest probably being how it improves the way I feel while pregnant. It’s not just me who feels this way – doctors now encourage women to stay active and a lot of research shows that physical activity (in moderation of […]

When You Bite Off More Than You Can Chew

A great phrase isn’t, it? It was pretty much my mantra a couple of weeks ago. Between writing posts and cooking for the blog, freelancing, nesting (I’ve been cleaning our house like crazy), keeping up with running, carrying a 3+ pound child in my uterus and planning and executing our daughter’s birthday party, I began […]

Baked Greek Fries

It’s national French fry day! If our daughter knew what food holidays were, this would absolutely be one of her favorites. Fries are her best friend. I’m not joking. We have to hide them whenever we make them or eat out to ensure she’ll eat the rest of her meal. She’s a very dedicated fry […]

Two-tti Fruity Birthday Party

Our baby girl turned two yesterday and what a second year it’s been! While preparing a picture banner for her birthday party, my husband and I couldn’t help but think how much she’s grown inside and out over the past year, and we both agree that she’s at such a fun age. The difference was […]

Southern Breakfast Bowl with Goat Cheese Grits and Biscuits

I’m going to start this post off with a big old hey ya’ll, because the recipe I’m about to share is full of southern flavor and comfort. I’ll preface by saying this is not your typical breakfast bowl. It’s nowhere near healthy and absolutely full of carbs, bacon grease and cheesy goodness, but it’s worth […]

Cinnamon Sugar Square Marshmallow Treats

I’m not much of a traditionalist when it comes to food. There are certain dishes I’d never want to change, but for the most part, I find a lot of happiness trying meals and/or desserts that add unexpected ingredients or flavors to a recipe. It’s such an experience for my taste buds when I find […]

Babymoon in Newport, RI

My husband and I recently took a trip to Newport, RI, a quaint, coastal town about an hour and a half outside of Boston, and we had the greatest time together. It was a breath of fresh air to spend time just the two of us, and I can’t thank both of our parents enough […]

Oh Hey, Third Trimester!

I’m now two-thirds of the way through my pregnancy – what in the world?! I truly don’t believe it. It seems like just yesterday I held that positive test in my hands and walked straight over to my husband with tears in my eyes. The past 12 weeks have been better than I thought they […]

Red, White and Blue Trifle

As I mentioned in my last post, we went strawberry picking this past weekend at Stade’s Farm and Market. It was such a fun summer activity to do together as a family – I’m hoping to make it a tradition at the start of each summer. Not only was it enjoyable, but the strawberries we […]
