How I Grew My Freezer Stash to More Than 100 Bags of Breast Milk

With my baby turning 8 months, I can't believe I've been I've been breastfeeding/pumping exclusively this entire time. I've gone through ups and downs of uncertainty if my supply would keep up thanks to illness and everyday stresses. But the other day, I opened up our deep freeze and saw over 100 bags of my [...]


Holiday Hangover

I miraculously survived the holidays. I hope you all did too. Being an introvert, social gatherings are exhausting. Running around from one celebration to another is not my idea of a good time. Every year my wish is to just stay at home with my husband and kids and just enjoy a relaxing day together. [...]

Stitch Fix review – November 2018

I'm not going to lie, lately I've been on a little bit of an online shopping bender. I don't know if it's the time of year or the severe lack of sleep I'm getting, but I've been clicking to my little heart's delight. And a couple weeks ago I decided it was time for another [...]

Pumping: The Real Work

So I'm switching gears today and writing about breastfeeding, or more exclusively, pumping. First, I am of the mind that "Fed is best." Moms can whip their boobs out in public and latch on their hungry babes, or shake up a bottle of formula and I could not care less. All that matters is that [...]

Cracking open the recipe box

Cracking open the recipe box

For something maybe a little more beneficial to my readers rather than my ramblings, I thought I would write a post about some dinner recipes that I like. I'm not a master chef, but I think I do okay. For me to attempt a recipe, it has to be ideally less than 20 minutes of [...]
