Saga of a 2nd Baby – Different Choices & Patient Empowerment

Saga of a 2nd Baby – Different Choices & Patient Empowerment

Well it’s been just about four months since little Piper Ann, our 2nd child, was born. It has actually been a little harder than I imagined, if you can believe that, haha! ! After my first, I figured, it would all be much easier…and it was in some respects. There were a lot of things I didn’t *plan* to stress about so much the second time – the actual labor and delivery (been there done that right?!), breastfeeding basics (I had a terribly hard time the first go, so I felt like anything would be easier!), baby sleep basics (again, I learned the...
The BEST Granola Bars Ever

The BEST Granola Bars Ever

So my mom finally left today after staying nearly 2 months. She got here four days before Piper was born and has never left. Can you say #SpoiledDaughter?! It has been such a blessing and hopefully she liked being here as much as we liked having her. Wyatt is going to have a hard time tomorrow morning when “Neena” isn’t around to play with him. *Sniff sniff* I wanted to make sure my mom had some healthy snacks to take on the road back to North Carolina. In addition to cranberry scones, grape gummies, and a huge protein shake for lunch, I made...
Healing our Dog’s Cancer without Chemo

Healing our Dog’s Cancer without Chemo

I have been slacking in the blogging department lately…shame on me! I guess when you have a little one at home and one on the way, some other things  tend to steal your focus. That’s definitely been happening lately. Wyatt has been EXTRA clingy and must know his soon-to-come sister is about to steal away all his attention. Plus, I’ve been very anemic my whole pregnancy so that is really zapping my energy. It is making me seem like the laziest person alive because exerting myself takes so much more work now! So if I cook dinner, or vacuum or mop,...
One Girl’s Journey on Whole 30 – Weeks 2 & 3

One Girl’s Journey on Whole 30 – Weeks 2 & 3

Cristin has been such a trooper. She has devoutly stuck to this eating plan and is gracious enough to continue to share her experience (and some cool pictures) with us! *************************** It has been a busy couple of weeks! So busy that I’ll have to share my experiences from both Weeks 2 and 3 with you in this post. As I anticipated, Week 2 proved to be a little more challenging than Week 1. I attribute it to the fact that in Week 2, the excitement and “newness” of the experience was starting to wear off and the reality that this was...
One Girl’s Journey on Whole 30 – Week 1

One Girl’s Journey on Whole 30 – Week 1

After suffering from fatigue for months, my close friend Cristin recently decided to start the Whole 30 diet. I’d never heard of this eating plan but am already very intrigued with it simply hearing about the changes Cristin is seeing. I also like one of their rules: “You are not allowed to step on the scale or take any body measurements for the duration of the program. This is about so much more than just weight loss, and to focus on your body composition means you’ll miss out on the most dramatic and lifelong benefits this plan has to offer. So, no...
How I’m using my Essential Oils

How I’m using my Essential Oils

  Not long ago, I decided it was time to explore the essential oil (EO) realm. It seemed like a very natural progression for me given my other interests! I have been really enjoying them and wanted to share how I’ve been using them on me and my family. After doing some research, I decided to buy the bulk of my EOs from Mountain Rose Herbs and some from Native American Nutritionals. Stretch marks. I made a salve to put on my pregnant belly. Once I hit the 20 week mark, my tummy started feeling tighter and a little uncomfortable. I use an almond carrier...
