    Our Weekend

    The last few days have been rough in our house. Three of Olivia’s teeth have decided to make their debut at the same time. So needless to say, days are rough, but nights have been rougher. I spend most of my days feeling guilty. Guilty that I can’t do anything…

    Baby #2: 23 Weeks

    I’m 23 weeks into my second pregnancy. I have to say, I’m in awe of the female body. I’ve been reading blogs for years with women who talked about their bodies before, during, and after pregnancy and now that I’ve experienced it for myself, I gotta say-women are awesome! Now…

    I’ve been home with Olivia for a while and I have to say that I am really liking it. When I started going back to work after my maternity leave, to a job a loved, I was doing just fine. When we found an amazing daycare in LA that loved…

    Myke and I think our daughter is pretty cute. I mean, look at her! Last night, while we were watching TV, one of our nightly rituals. She went around the corner and we noticed she was over there and laughing at herself and we couldn’t figure out what she was…

    We Visited Daddy at Work!

    My mom has her house cleaned every couple weeks and so to get out of their way, I take Olivia out for a few hours. For this particular afternoon’s adventure, we visited Myke at work. We were able to go to his office, meet everyone there, and put names to…

    Ricotta Pancakes

    If there is one thing you need to know about me it is that I love Fixer Upper. Anything related to them, I will be suckered in. This past year, just like every other woman, I was looking forward to Joanna’s cookbook coming out and like a good husband, Myke…

    Monterey Getaway

    One of the many reasons we are happy to be back in northern California is the travel. We love that you can drive  45 minutes and be at a lake, but still feels like you are hours away. My brilliant in-laws wanted to take Myke and I to Monterey for…
