Taking Care of Mama

A 30 BEFORE 30 update!

March 25, 2014

Run ONE mile without stopping or dying. (ONE MILE. Is it SO hard?) Have another baby. July 6, 2013! Complete 30 Day Shred. Hopefully move just ONE last time for at least several years. Bought a house May 31, 2013! Finally make the mommy and me aprons I’ve been planning to make for the last year. We [...]

You’re not doing a good job (and other lies we imply)

March 13, 2014

Me and my clingy guy this week while working in the garage. I’m obviously not amused. I’m attempting a garage sale this weekend (and of course now rain is scheduled for Saturday), there’s a birthday party to plan (Bluebelle is turning 4!), and I have so much other stuff on my plate that my stress [...]

When all you need is a break.

February 21, 2014

Can we do some real talk this morning? Okay, good. Let’s begin by this unfortunate truth: women tend to be really hard on each other. We are. I don’t know if it’s because we are hard on ourselves, or if guilt is a motivating factor, or our struggles with jealousy. I think it can sometimes [...]

To you, new mama.

February 14, 2014

For the new mom: Welcome to the club! I see you.  I really do.  You are my friends.  I have rejoiced with you.  Shed tears over your absolutely perfect bundles of joy, and I love watching you marvel.  Every time you do, it reminds me of my own babies and how much I love those [...]

Competitive at Heart.

February 13, 2014

For your enjoyment… a pic of me and my friends back in the day. (8 years ago!) Let me tell you something about myself that you may or may not know. I like being the best. When I was a kid, schoolwork and things automatically came pretty easy to me. I didn’t struggle with schoolwork [...]

From Scratch.

January 29, 2014

The early days of marriage is a whole lot of trial and error. This is especially true in the kitchen. I remember trying to find a way to create something that both me and my husband would love — and something beyond the hamburger helper and other quick meals we mastered in college. Meals became [...]

Filling my bathtub.

January 27, 2014

Sometimes we fill the bathtub just to drain it back down again. That happened to me this morning. I had just eased in after putting Squishy down in his crib, planning on him to nap for the next hour. It had been his routine the past 3 days and so I was banking on it [...]

Stepping back, stepping up

January 24, 2014

Just a quick life update as well as a few revelations that I’ve had these last few months. It’s been obvious that I haven’t resumed my frequency in posting on here since delivering Squishy 6 months ago. In fact, I’ve taken a break from my physical computer for a while (and I hate compiling blog [...]

My words for 2014.

January 1, 2014

I’m going to keep this brief as it looks like a Toys R Us exploded in our house and I’m in the midst of trying to dig a tunnel to get through it. I’m sure you are suffering through something similar! Plus, Heavyweights is on TV and I love that movie. I’ve been thinking about [...]

How’s this for motivation? Be ordinary.

December 20, 2013

  Me. Second-day hair, garage sale shirt with a paint stain on it, putting up ornaments. Totally boring. A few days ago I read a post written by my friend Megan about how she gained 1,000 blog followers in 6 months. I’ll be honest, she does intentional blogging far better than I do. I can [...]
