Hi, guys! It’s late here and I’m exhausted, so I’m going to whiz right through this post and give you the cliff notes from the day. Here goes! Early-morning Rice Chex with my little love. Quinn would much rather eat “on the go” than sit down for a meal. There’s way too much to do and see! This boy never stops moving. Iced coffee for mama! I also finished off the rest of Quinn’s Chex….

Good morning and happy Friday, friends! A little recap from yesterday… While I fed Quinn, Mal cooked us breakfast (scrambled eggs with ham and cheese). Quinn’s two front teeth are coming in, so the poor little guy wasn’t loving his bottle like he normally does. However, he loved these Super Puff things that my sister gave me (Matthew apparently loved them at Quinn’s age), so he ate a bunch of those, slowly with the sides of his mouth,…

Most random blog post title ever? I think so! Haha! Yesterday, my “morning” started at 4:30 AM when I heard Quinn crying. Mal actually got up with him, so I could sleep a little longer. Well, I’m actually not sleeping very much/at all during this flare. I wake up every hour or so in pain because the cramping is so bad or to go to the bathroom or to change my clothes because I have sweat…

Hi, guys! Just popping in to give you a little recap of yesterday! Breakfast Q and I were up at 3:30 AM, so by the time we finished with everything, it was just about 5:00 AM, so I started my day. I figured while everyone was sleeping (both Q and Murphy ate breakfast and then went back to bed), I should get some work done. Breakfast was a pita with almond butter and banana slices…

Good morning! Happy Hump Day! Breakfast Yesterday morning started with an especially delicious breakfast. I love it when meals come out so much better than expected! I had two waffles with melt-y almond butter spread in between and warm, sweet cinnamon apples on top. So yum! To make the apples, I just chopped up a couple, placed them in a microwave-safe bowl, drizzled honey and sprinkled cinnamon on top, and then nuked them for 90…

Good afternoon, friends! After breakfast yesterday, I spent the rest of the morning work, work, working and then took a break for lunch around noon. The morning flew by, so I didn’t even realize it was lunchtime until my stomach started to grumble. Lunch On the menu for lunch: a leftover Italian “hot plate” with grated Parmesan cheese on top. Quick, easy, delicious, nutritious. Leftovers rule. Snack A little while later, I snacked on a…

Did anyone else watch last week’s episode of New Girl when Jess does impressions of Urkel and Michelle Tanner to impress her new (younger) neighbors? Well, it reminded me of The Mindset List that my brother-in-law told me about the other day. He’s a college professor, so he uses it for his students. The Mindset List is an annual list of values/things that shape the worldview (or “mindset”) of students about 18 years old and…
