Thursday Things 5.11

Did you know it’s National Salad Month and National Chocolate Custard Month? IN THE SAME MONTH. It’s also National Date Your Mate Month, so Ryan let’s go to Culver’s and pretend to eat salads and then actually eat way too much chocolate custard. Also, who makes up these “national month” things? It’s slightly ridiculous. Master…

10 things I didn’t realize before having a baby

You will count in weeks/months. Ryan and I used to get a kick out of parents who would tell us, “She is 7 weeks” or “He is 19 months.” Now that we’re parents ourselves, we totally get it! There are so many developmental milestones that happen in the first few years of a little one’s life…

Fifty percent of you reading this probably think that pickley pizza looks disgusting and the other 50 percent of you probably think it looks delicious. Let me tell you, that’s buffalo chicken AND garlic sauce on there and it was delicious. Chicken mentioned above came from our crock pot meal prep we did this week. It’s…

Why I loved having a C-section

There’s often a stigma that goes along with having a C-section. Maybe it comes from not experiencing hours of labor pain or not having a baby the “natural way”. Maybe it comes from the idea that a mother who has a C-section has chosen to take “the easy way out”.  Today I’m tossing aside those…

Thursday Things 4.20

Are you a productive rainy day person or a snuggly rainy day person? I always find myself wanting to curl up with a good book or watch a movie with Ryan, but I get restless get things done so I can have fun outside when the sun comes out. I resonated with the rationale behind…

Lincoln 2 Month Check-in

  EAT Since day one Lincoln has been an eager eater. We still do feedings about every 2-3 hours. We introduced the bottle in a moment of exhaustion when he was one week old and he gulps one down every few days like a champ. This portion of the post will become a lot more…

Thursday Things 4.6

Photo from a brunch date with Ashton Thiessen How is it already April? And how do I have a two-month old child? I just spent a bit of time thinking about our life last year at this time. Oh, how our life has changed in crazy awesome ways. So remember last year when Bulletproof coffee was all…

Thursday Things 3.16

Two reasons to love Daylight Savings: It’s now significantly brighter at dinner time and our baby now sleeps until 6 am instead of 5 am. Ryan and I took two hours to watch a forty minute TV show on Saturday night due to frequent breaks for Lincoln-related activities (and snack making). I think it was…

Thursday Things 3.9

Ed Sheeran’s new album that was released last week is officially the sound track to Lincoln’s life, because his mom plays it all morning when they’re home alone together. Making caramel sauce out of coconut milk – how cool is this? I am kind of obsessed with Whole 30’s and maybeeee even want to do one?  I…

Thursday Things 3.2

Our baby is one month old today! This past month flew by and we can’t believe that every day we get to wake up and hang out with the cutest little baby in the world. #LincolnsSoCute (Sorry I had to.) Yesterday I finally posted a mega long post on Lincoln’s birth story, so years from…

Lincoln’s Birthday

Note: This post is long. Like 1721 words long to be exact. If you make it all the way to the end, you rock. You can come cuddle Lincoln sometime and have a cup of coffee with me. If you don’t read the whole thing, no hard feelings. You can come back and read a…
