It’s been one month…

(Written on 10.02.2017) It’s been one month…. …Since I held you in my arms for the first time. …Since I felt that feeling of joy that is delivering a baby. …Since I felt like a superhero again. …Since our confusion that you were a boy and not the girl we had been told we were expecting. …Since my heart stopped beating a little. …Since I held you for the last time. Since I kissed you for the last time. I really don’t know where to start this. I have had all these ideas floating around in my head the past […]

The 12 Posts of Christmas #9: Christmas Baking

And just like that…it’s over.  All of that planning and prepping…is over. Pretend like you’re reading this on Christmas Eve, because that’s when I intended on posting it.  Why I thought I would be posting on the Eve, I have not a clue. I made two new recipes this year.  I made gingerbread cookies (sorry, I guess I didn’t take a picture of them).  They taste good, but are a pain in the you-know-wutt to cut (do you see what I did there?  no?  ok…nevermind).  The dough is really tacky, even after sitting in the fridge for more than 24 […]

The 12 Posts of Christmas #7: Candy Cane Ornament Kid Craft

How is it December 22 already?  Here I was, in disbelief of it being 2 1/2 weeks until Christmas, and now it’s only 3 days away? Now don’t be confused.  Amanda at From J to Z usually posts first, but I’m switching it up! I don’t do many kid crafts with little A, so I decided that I am going to try to be better at that.  These little ornaments would kill a few birds with one stone: Craft, gift, and giving Ayden some much needed mommy attention while I am so busy with getting the house and Christmas stuff […]

The 12 Posts of Christmas #6: Handmade Christmas Ornaments

Yes, I’m late…story of my life.  I’ve been so busy with trying to get Christmas stuff done and trying not to let the house be mistaken for a landfill.  I SO thought I was ahead of the game seeing as I did this craft LAST FRIDAY!!!  And here I sit again, after 9PM on Friday, writing this.  Please do not ask me where last week went, because I can honestly say I do not know.  Just trying to keep up with dishes, laundry and my 3 year-old…there isn’t much time for more.  Throw in trying to get ready for Christmas, […]

The 12 Posts of Christmas #4

Welcome back to the Christmas collaboration From J to Z and I find ourselves in.  Here’s the 4th Post of Christmas   Here we are, 13 days away from Christmas Day!!!  So that means I only have 12 days until I need to have everything done (since we celebrate with the big family on the Eve).  And finally today…TODAY, I started my Christmas crafts.  One of those crafts was this terracotta pot candy jar that has been stalking me on Pinterest.  Maybe it’s the other way around…moving on! Well, I finally decided to get the stuff and actually make it.  […]

#2 of The 12 Post of Christmas

  Well hello there!   I hope you all enjoyed the first installment of The Veronica Blog and FromJtoZ Christmas colab.  If you haven’t checked it out yet, here ya go! It has been a little while since my last post.  I had been so busy with Thanksgiving preparations.  And then my little baby boy turned THREE on Black Friday so we had his birthday party on Saturday.  So I was busy with that.  I’m not really sure what’s happened to the last week and a half, but it just hit me that there are only 2 1/2 weeks until […]

Pumpkin Protein Oat Bars

If you know me, or have been following me for…well, any amount of time.  You know that I struggle with staying on a healthy/active lifestyle.  Eating healthy and exercising regularly just doesn’t come naturally for me.  It is a real fight in my head between good and evil.  And for the last few months, evil has one every time.  Even the days that I randomly got out for a jog, I couldn’t stick with the eating well part. I’ve never been a “meal prep” kind of eater for two reasons.  A) I never know when I want to eat until […]

How I organized my Pinterest

Anyone else have way too many pins? I know I cannot be the only person out there that has way more pins than I will ever utilize. Pretty much anyone with a Pinterest account (most likely) has this “problem”.   Just like Pinterest, itself, I have evolved, in how I organize it. I didn’t start using Pinterest right away when it first came out.  I didn’t know what it was.  I thought it was weird.  And then I got curious.  I caved.  I now…like many…have a Pinterest Problem. Seeing as how I didn’t really know what I was doing when […]

When all else fails…COOKIES!!!

Oh my!  Could it be true?  Could my last post really be a month and a half ago???  I know I’m not the every-day-blogger, but that just seems like a long time. A lot has happened in that month and a half, so I’m not surprised that the blog got left out.  I will spare you the details, and just pick up like where I left off. I was “challenged” by a friend of mine to do a #write31days challenge.  Where I would publish a blog post every day for 31 days.  I accepted the challenge…over a week ago.  Who […]

Throwback Thursday 08/21/2014

Today’s #tbt is Ayden’s very first RAYS game.  Well first, if you don’t count the Spring Training game we attended when I was pregnant (before I found out I was pregnant) and the regular season game after I found out. It was an afternoon game (the only kind that made sense to go to with a 9month old baby. We were able to take Grandpa with us (Berk’s dad, his mom had to work). It was a very interesting trip for me as I had to pump in the back seat so that I didn’t have to take Ayden anywhere […]
