Say “Yikes” and move on

I totally stole this from a meme, but it’s so perfectly accurate so I had to steal it for the title.

This is my life mantra. When something doesn’t go your way, when you try and fail, just say “yikes” and move on.

Pregnancy Cravings

That was a bit of a misleading title because I haven’t really had any real cravings with my pregnancy so far.  Like I am not saying to Dan at 9 pm I want a cheeseburger and fries from McDonald’s, nor do I feel the need to have ice cream all the time.  The closest thing I have gotten a craving is wanting a butternut squash soup from Panera Bread.

What you can control

This week I went into Monday pretty stressed. Even though I followed my own, “Fighting Sunday Scaries” guidelines, Monday morning still got me good.

All the squashes

Last night I made stuffed acorn squash and as I was finishing off the rest of Dan’s acorn squash (yes I eat HIS leftovers, never the other way around) when Dan said, “You know, I really like most squashes but this just isn’t my favorite.”

I tried not to take it personally because I thought it was a pretty freaking great dinner, but I can’t fault him either. If I were to rank all the squashes, then acorn squash would probably be my least favorite too.

Fighting the Sunday Scaries

The Sunday Scaries. We all know what it is, and we have all experienced it at SOME point. I don’t care who you are, what you do, or how much you love your job, there has to have been at least ONE Sunday you have gotten nervous, or just simply thought, I don’t want to work tomorrow…

I love my job and I own my own business, with no one to report to, and I still get this every so often.

The Babymoon

This past weekend we went to Maine for our “babymoon”.For the expecting mamas out there, I would highly recommend doing a little weekend getaway with your husband before that beautiful babe arrives. We kept it short, simple, relaxing, and beautiful, and it was exactly what my heart and soul needed.

September Meal of the Month

This is one of my most FAVORITE meals to make for the Fall.  I gotta be honest, I am not a huge “soup” person, but I will ALWAYS pick this if it’s on the menu at a restaurant and we make it at home all of the time.  It’s warm, filling, a little sweet, and a lot of delicious.  

It is also dairy-free, so that’s a win/win =] 

I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

Learn Something New

When the seasons change, the bathing-suits get packed away, and the kids head back to school it always brings me back to that “new school year feeling”.  

When I was in school, I would always get so excited to wear a new outfit on the first day, see my friends again, and secretly, I always got giddy excited about learning something new.  I loved the smell of new parchment paper and the must of an old textbook that you would get to write your name in because you “owned it” from 2008-2009.  (I don’t even know if they still use these anymore.. But still! It was the best.) 

There was something magical about a new beginning and the unknown.

What I am looking forward to this Fall

One thing I absolutely LOVE about living in New England is that the season’s change.  

This summer was weird, probably for most of us. Even though I love the summertime with my whole heart and soul, my sister and I kept saying that we felt like this Fall would be a turning point. Let’s just say we were looking forward to this year’s change of seasons.

Mother’s Intuition?

It’s a… Mother’s Intuition?

If you follow me on Instagram you might have seen the announcement that Dan and I are expecting a baby boy come February of 2021! I’m not exactly sure of the due date because I keep forgetting to ask. =]
