Mamavation Monday – Oops It’s Tuesday Edition

October 18, 2011

I missed reporting in last week due to being ridiculously busy and yesterday got away from me, but I’m still here and still working hard! I tried on the offending dress that kicked my butt back into gear and am liking how it’s fitting a little better now, but still have some more work to […]

Mamavation Monday – Feeling a Little Better

October 3, 2011

It’s Monday again and I’m sticking with my promise to myself to get back on track. Still not focusing on numbers, but I did note that I dropped 4 lbs from last Monday’s weigh in. Being that I did not work terribly hard on exercise last week and I did splurge this weekend a bit, […]

The past two weeks have been a whirlwind! Starting with our weekend away in Lancaster, PA for the Day Out With Thomas event and other fun local attractions (a whole series of posts about that bunch of awesome coming this week) and continuing through the SheStreams conference last weekend, I’ve been an on-the-go gal.

Mamavation Monday – I’m Back (Again)

September 26, 2011

It’s been awhile since I’ve shown my face around a Mamavation Monday. Earlier in the year I was kicking butt, dropping pounds and feeling great about myself. Then one day, something happened.

September 21, 2011

September 14, 2011

Some of you might remember a little over a year ago, when we had a frightening hospital stay with then 3-yr-old D. Unbeknownst to us, he had gotten ahold of a button battery and swallowed it. What presented as a severe “tummy ache” was actually a battery that had lodged itself in his esophagus and […]

We’re Spending a Day Out with Thomas!

September 13, 2011

It’s been a bit since I’ve posted about our fascination with trains in this house. Our toy bins are still overflowing with our wheeled friends and just last night, I rolled over to find a couple of engines sharing my bed. Trains have held my boys attention and been a constant companion of theirs practically […]

Team Umizoomi Preschool Math Kit Review and Giveaway *Closed*

August 15, 2011

As much as I am in denial that K is starting Kindergarten in a few weeks, to be followed by D next fall, I have been working as much as I can to get them prepared for school. They’re both home with me all day, so we rely on workbooks, computer games and educational TV […]
