Rise

So far so good for the New Year- both my kids slept in today. Thank goodness, because L was up until just past one, and S was only twenty minutes away from midnight before I finally got her down in her crib last night. My brain was still going last night when I finally laid down after my first early […]

Granulomatous Mastitis: Part Four

Brief Synopsis: I was diagnosed with a somewhat rare condition called idiopathic granulomatous mastitis in August 2018. Because of it’s rarity, there’s not a lot of helpful info on this crazy inflammatory disease on the internet, which was very frustrating when I got my diagnosis. Luckily I’ve managed to find a group of women who also experience this condition, and […]

Green Beans and Shrimp Stir Fry

You guys. I found a way to get Lincoln to eat green beans. Without complaining. I’m jotting down this quick and simple recipe now before I forget all about it and spend even more time down the road lamenting how I cannot get my three-year-old to eat anything other than peanut butter and jelly or chicken nuggets.

Ibotta is an app which basically lets you do “backwards couponing.” What I mean by this: Instead of […]

Essential Rewards: March 2018 Box

It’s Lincoln’s favorite time of the month: when the Young Living essential rewards order comes in! He just loves opening up those tubes and seeing what’s in them. Then he likes to play with the (unopened) bottles like they’re Little People figures. They go in his trash truck, his play airplane, or he just lines them all up and talks […]

Disclaimer: Not Pregnant

Confession time. For the last 7-8 days or so, I’ve been 100% convinced that I’m pregnant. Like rushing to Amazon to buy pre-natal vitamins convinced. Like heading to Target to look at newborn sleepers and maternity jeans convinced. Like counting out the estimated due date and figuring out how maternity leave would fit into my school year convinced. I had […]
