How I Get My Newborn to Sleep Through the Night

If there’s one association people make with newborns, it’s sleepless nights. “How are you sleeping?” seems to be the first question people ask new moms (and dads!), and for good reason… most newborns are on 2-to-3 hour sleep cycles, waking up frequently throughout the day and night. I’m unsure if I lucked out twice or just […]

Why I Broke Up with Olive Oil

You know that recurring childhood thought that went something like “if a little bit is good, then a lot must be amaaazing”, but after a few overly-salted meals and 7th grade make-up nightmares (let’s leave the blue eyeshadow in 1985 where it belongs) you realized that minimalism isn’t so bad? Well, there are a few […]

3 Sweet Drinks to Keep You Slim This Summer

We all fall victim to the occasional coke or soft drink, but with the caloric content of a 20 oz bottle of Coca-Cola carrying 240 calories and 65 grams of sugar (that’s over 3 times the 20 gram recommendation for women made by the American Heart Association), one too many indulgences can quickly set you […]

Taco Tuesday

When it comes to dining out, I’ve recently fallen victim to complacency in a major way. We have our Dallas go-to’s – great pizza? Cane Rosso or Pie Tap. A fresh submarine sandwich? The Great Outdoors. And tacos – oh, the beloved tacos – Torchy’s has been our go-to for years now (if you ever […]

You’re Having A Girl

“You’re having a girl!” Those are 4 words that I had expected to hear nearly 4 years ago during Avery’s ultrasound. I’ll never forget the shock when I was told “boy” instead. But God had a plan, and although I may not have understood it then, His picture is coming together so much clearer now. After […]

We Have A Surprise!

You think you’re surprised? Imagine our reaction! It’s been a wild few weeks since finding out that we are expecting another little peanut. I’ve been MIA because every time my fingers hit the keyboard I’d want to blurt out my secret. Agony!! So this whole thing is wild and scary and exciting and many.many.many emotions. […]

4 Nutritious Toddler Meals

In my house, we like junk food. We like pizza, we like pasta, and we LOVE sour candy. Mmm. Not just us adults, but the toddler too. As much as I hate to admit it, that kid can put away some pizza (I’m secretly proud). So in order to balance out our weekend cheat meals, […]
