Pregnancy and a Pandemic

The last few months have been an interesting mix of happy and terrifying.  We found out that I was pregnant at the end of January.  Instantly we were thrilled and chomping to tell any and everyone.  Andy bought me the most beautiful “Yea, we are pregnant!” bouquet and we went about planning which room would be the […]

Whole 30: Week 2

Today I began Week 3 of Whole30. I expected to hit the “Hardest Days” and the “I Dream of Junk Food” stages this week – and I did! I have been dreaming of cheesy pepperoni pizza ALL WEEK! Seriously, all week. Cheesy pepperoni pizza and a gin martini. Not necessary together, but then, I wouldn’t […]

Home

I moved into our Austin home over a month ago, but this past weekend was the first time I got that “this feels like home” feeling. First, our move was a quick and somewhat stressful one. We knew that we had our honeymoon planned for the beginning of April and we needed to be out […]

Update

Things have been ridiculously wild and busy since my last post – which, I admit, was some time ago. March 1, yikes! I’m sorry! I hope everyone had a Happy St. Patrick’s Day and a lovely Easter! A quick recap: I moved back to Austin, stopped working from home – I now work full time […]
