My favorite cookie recipe…Psst! They are Gluten-free! 

When my husband and I decided to try Whole 30 in January, we didn’t realize what we were getting ourselves into! Yes, we wanted to do Whole 30 to lose weight, but more importantly, we knew we needed a detox. Afterwards when we went back to our normal lives, we realized a couple of things…

The Stranger in the Mirror

Deep crevices like tire tracks across my belly. Clothes hugging in places they never have before… falling off in others. Roots streaked with gray. The beginnings of wrinkles forming around my eyes… whether from lack of sleep or lots of laughter, you can be the judge. Being a mom changes you. Emotionally, mentally, and physically. Sometimes…

Creating Your Personalized Color Pallete 

If you are anything like me when shopping for clothes, you tend to gravitate towards the exciting accent items. I am always so excited with my purchases until I get home and realize I don’t have anything to match! Because of this and the dreaded, “I got it because it was on sale” phenomenon, my…

The best guac you will ever taste… 

Who loves Guacamole?? *unabashedly raising both hands* So what do you do when you have THREE perfect avocados?  You make a bowl full of guacamole!!  Did you know that traditional guacamole doesn’t include lime OR cilantro? The lime was originally added to prevent the guac from browning, but it eventually became a guacamole staple in…

MeMade Spring Capsule Wardrobe 

My body has gone through a lot of changes in the past three years. First, I lost about 15 pounds, then I got pregnant, and now I am on the downward slope of postpartum. When I look in the mirror, I don’t see the same person anymore!  Because of this, NONE of my clothes fit….

DIY Wrap Dress

Raise your hand if you can’t remember the last time you had a REAL date night… My kid is 9 months old, and this was the first time we had left him for more than a couple of hours! What’s the occasion? Valentine’s Day! My hubby planned a fancy dinner at a new restaurant followed…

Counting Your Blessings

Lately I have really been thinking about my little guy’s birth. Especially as we are nearing his first birthday, I think about how closely we escaped heartbreak. Not many people know this, but he had a Nuchal Cord x3 (cord wrapped around his neck 3 times), his heart rate would drop with every contraction, and…

No-Bake Energy Balls and My Breastfeeding Journey

My breastfeeding journey hasn’t always been the smoothest. Ever since my guy hit the four month mark, he has had other ideas in mind. Every time he learns something new, he doesn’t seem to have time for nursing. SO, when he does decide he wants to end his nursing strikes, I don’t always have enough…

DIY Doggie Fresh Breath Treats

I love my dogs. I really do! I can deal with the crazy shedding, the obsessive licking, and all the other nasty things they do, but what I can’t handle? Nasty booty breath. Especially having a baby who loves to give them kisses… Buying them special breath freshening treats was getting expensive, so I decided…

Quinoa Veggie Biscuits – BLW

This has been one of my many go-to recipes in our Baby Led Weaning journey. I like to make these in bulk and freeze some, so I have quick, easy meals for our little guy. Because, let’s get real, baby food prep can be daunting and time consuming!! Anything to cut the process down so…

Reawaken the Dream Inside of You

I have been sitting here on the computer, fiddling around on facebook, trying to decide how to start this blog post. This is a BIG topic, and I will try to cover it as best I know how. But, this is what is on my heart, so it is what needs to be said! I…

Meal Ideas for Baby Led Weaning

When I first started Baby Led Weaning (BLW), I wasn’t quite sure where to begin! The appeal of BLW lies in its simplicity, so don’t overthink it! I have several go-to recipes, but on the days where I don’t have anything prepared, here are some of the basic meals I feed my little one. scrambled egg,…
