I can’t begin to tell y’all how amazing it is to be home! I just love not having classes or homework or crew practice…
I was looking forward to warm and sunny weather after all the rain DC had this spring, but it seems like I have brought the rain down south! Florida has literally been in a drought, and then I come home and it’s been raining EVERY day! After Soccer Dad told me that my pale legs looked sickly and unhealthy, I decided to lay out by the pool on Sunday. In an attempt to get a little color, I opted for SPF 30 instead of the usual 70; I did use 55 on my face though. Well lovelies, I turned into a lobster. I am just completely fried. Yuck.
I posted a few months ago about my lost voice and sore throat. Well, I haven’t exactly gotten over it… My voice is not 100% and I have frequent sore throats. Soccer Mom took me to a ENT doctor. He threaded a camera down my nose into my throat. It was awful. I just kept thinking about those men who feed a snake through nose for money. Yuck.
Enough ‘Yucks’… here’s some YUMS! I’ve been cooking up a storm this week!
Sunday: “Soccer Player Cookies”
A sweet variation on the classic chocolate chip cookie. Made with oatmeal, grapenuts, and dark chocolate. Family favorite (and Sporty Sister’s friends are obsessed too, hence the name!)
Mmm… Diced strawberries!
Monday: “Strawberry Shortcake Cookies”
Delicious adaptation on the timeless strawberry shortcake. The cookie is extremely tender and moist. Can’t eat just one! (From Martha Stewart Living)
Tuesday: “Shortcake Biscuits”
Inspired by the cookies, I decided to make traditional shortcake biscuits. Downright divine!
I’m announcing my giveaway tomorrow!!! I’m SO excited 🙂
No one will know the size of your jeans but they’ll know if they don’t fit! Struggling with my postpartum body… and just decided to go to the store and buy jeans that fit! Who knows what will happen down the road (my postpartum body always feels foreign for a while), but for now I have jeans that fit and that I feel good in. 🏻
Leave a comment with “jeans” and I’ll send you links for my outfit! 🔗
Can’t wait to fill Rory’s @petitekeep trunk with special memories and treasures 🏻 Jack’s is tucked away in his closet and every once in a while I open it up to store another item and reminisce on all the wonderful moments of his life so far. Love these keepsakes 🤍🍼👶🏼
After quite a tough pregnancy, from the first days all the way to the very end, I’m finally starting to feel like myself again! Nothing better than feeling a bit more “me.” I am trying to prioritize taking care of myself by carving out little slivers of time to do things that I enjoy… I don’t have unlimited time for hobbies, but I’ll take what I can get! I’m working on a couple of small needlepoint projects and I’m excited to start on Rory’s stocking soon🧵 🪡
My Valentine + Valentine Baby ❣️ After a very stressful start to the year, Rory’s birth felt like a bright light of hope and positivity. I’m so, so grateful for a healthy (and speedy!) delivery with Mike by my side.
(If you’re local, I switched to @madisonaveobgyn and this experience was night and day compared to my first pregnancy/delivery. I am *eternally* grateful for incredible care both during pregnancy and especially during delivery. It makes a huge difference.)
