Some Natural Things I’m Lovin’ Lately.

Hello y’all! Yes, I’m still alive.


Man, people warn you that having a baby is the hardest, most exhausting and most overwhelming thing you will ever do, but nothing really prepares you for it.  The sleepless nights and breastfeeding have been the most difficult things for me.  Luckily, I have the breastfeeding thing down (finally), and my body is slowly adjusting to the lack of sleep.  Lucy isn’t really on a specific schedule yet, so there are some nights she is up every 2 hours, and some nights she will go 4-5 hours.  She even had one (glorious) night last week where she slept for 8 straight hours – I was still up every few hours checking on her of course.  🙂

Pregnancy. 23 Weeks.

Bryan and I had a really nice weekend camping with a few of our friends at Fish Eating Creek in Palmdale, Florida.  We spent all weekend in the great outdoors surrounded by birds, the smell of campfire, and laughter from a hysterical game of Cards Against Humanity – if ya’ll haven’t played this game yet, you need to. Hilarious.  I don’t think I’ve ever seen Bryan (or his friends) laugh so hard.

When we got home, I decided it was time to check in on this little baby’s growth! So I did some reading – somehow I’m 23 weeks pregnant already, baby is about 1 pound and the size of a large mango. I hadn’t read any updates on my pregnancy app for awhile so I was shocked to see how much she had grown in such a short period of time.  It’s no wonder I feel like I’m getting larger and larger by the second – because I am!

5 Simple Things I’m Lovin’ Lately.

It’s been awhile since I’ve done a Things I’m Lovin’ Lately post, and with all the total eclipse love I’m feeling today, I thought it would be the perfect time.

Speaking of….did anyone get to see the eclipse?  We didn’t. Why? Because it didn’t hit totality in Florida, and because we were too lame and cheap to go get glasses.

It was rather humorous watching Bryan attempt to view it while he kept yelling at me and the dogs, “DON’T LOOK AT IT!”

Just Some Things I’m Lovin’ Lately.

Wowza. How is it already June 8th?

Time flies…

And speaking of time, it’s time again for another round up of things I’m lovin’ lately.  Why? Because it’s been 3 months since my last one  and because I’m feeling all sorts of love today.  AND because I’m lovin’ uhhhh lot of things lately.  AND because I have been sick, busy and too tired to cook any extravagant meals, so if y’all want to hear from me, this is pretty much all I got right now. Capiche?

Oh, and… 

I kid. I kid.  That’s all I got.

Things I’m Lovin’ Lately- March Edition.

I’ve been up since 5 a.m…

And it’s my day off…

Thanks uhhh-lot Bryan.

Honestly, as much as I hate the thought of crawling out of bed so early, once I’m up and have a cup of coffee in hand, I’m good to go.  Quite frankly, I dig it.  What’s not to love about the early hours of the morning – it’s still dark outside, most (normal) people aren’t awake yet, and it’s quiet, the list goes on…

Things I’m Lovin’ Lately – March Edition.

I don’t know about y’all but I absolutely HATE losing an hour on my weekends.  Yeah, yeah, I know we end up getting more daylight.

Blah, blah, blah…

But, as Bryan always says, “I don’t even give a care.” It’s an hour out of my favorite day of the week!  Sunday funday quickly becomes Sunday not-so-fun and rush to get everything done day.  That’s a mouthful.

5 Things I’m Lovin’ Lately

I’ve always been a very indecisive individual (just ask Bryan).  It’s hard enough for me to decide what I want to do each day, let alone what I want to eat.

When people discover that I’m a vegetarian, they often ask me what my favorite foods are, and what are my favorite products (hair care, lotion etc…). Honestly, I go through major kicks with food and products. For several years, I ate so many bananas, and now I can barely bring myself to eat half of one – I do because I know they are good for me, but usually I have to blend them into smoothies.
