Every pregnancy is different. Every baby is different. Every child is different.
These are things we hear as moms and expecting moms, and while true, it doesn’t necessarily sink in until it’s experienced. At least for me it didn’t until my second precious daughter came along.
My dear Lily has done her best to make a distinction from her big sister since day 1!
Her sister was born before her due date, Lily was born a day late. Her sister was very active during the day but slept like a champ at night, whereas Lily was incredibly mellow during the day and sleep was definitely NOT in her vocabulary. Her sister has always been pretty good about eating and trying a mix of fruits and vegetables, and that Lily isn’t having it!! HA!
She will eat fruit (not all of them) and not touch a single vegetable, and (like her father I’m told) boycott most everything that’s placed in front of her during mealtime. It’s frustrating to say the least, but this mama has options with the help of Happy Baby’s Clearly Crafted™ Pouches!
We received complimentary meals in exchange for this review. As always, my opinion is 100% honest and my own.
A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to visit the restaurantEstablishment, while on my girls trip. There are a number of great food options in Atlanta, but some placesreally stand out. This is certainly one of them!
From the rustic decor based on elements of Atlanta’s rich history, to the incredible service, this is a place you must try if given the opportunity! Oh, and did I mention that the food is phenomenal?!
A very special thank you to Le Petit Marché and Sun in My Belly for providing these meals in exchange for an honest review. As always, my opinions are 100% sincere and my own.
I absolutely love breakfast foods. I am a firm believer that breakfast is a meal that can, and should be enjoyed at any time of the day (dinner included), and I am always on the hunt for a place that really takes this meal to another level.
On my recent girls trip in Atlanta (more on that to come), we found not one, but two amazing restaurants that made my breakfast-loving dreams come true!!
This meal was provided by Dinner Thyme in exchange for an honest review. As always, I only share what I love and appreciate your continued support!
If you know me in person this won’t come as a surprise to you, but cooking is not my thing.
Ok, ok. Now everyone in the “Amen” corner please settle down. LOL.
In all seriousness, I don’t enjoy cooking. I don’t even enjoy grocery shopping. In fact, I despise it. And while my husband will graciously eat all of my meals (let’s face it, the man has to eat something), there are only a handful of dishes that I feel I really knock out of the park.
In addition to my general disdain for the whole process, there’s this thing called time that no one ever has enough of. Evenings are especially challenging with my husband’s work schedule, church activities, getting the girls to bed on time (HA!), etc, but we have to eat!
We don’t want to fall in to the quick but unhealthy fast food routine, so we decided to give Dinner Thyme a try!
This means beautiful blooms, allergy attacks, unpredictable weather, baseball season (Go Giants!!), and of course, the yearly race to get swimsuit ready.
Did anyone else kinda cringe a bit at that last one?
I’m not thrilled with where my body is these days, but If you’ve followed me for any length of time you’ll know that I’ve been trying my best to remain consistent in my workouts. Not just for pool days, but to establish and maintain a healthier lifestyle in general and set a good example for my girls.
One area that is a struggle for me is snack-time. I want something easy, quick AND delicious, and I usually have a craving for something sweet. ‘Healthy’ isn’t always the first requirement, when I’m scrambling for something at the last minute, but I’ve finally found a great option with VitaTops™ MuffinTops!
