Week 22: Mind, Body, Baby

5 months down, 4 to go, and feeling great! I love pregnancy; it's seriously fascinating that there's a little human being growing inside of me. And I feel this crazy bond to my belly; talking to it, rubbing it, nurturing it with healthy foods and dousing it in lotion. And now that we're starting to… Continue reading Week 22: Mind, Body, Baby


Week 20: It’s a Boy!

Mark and I are thrilled to announce that we're having a boy!! We found out yesterday with a "silly" gender reveal party using silly string (thanks YouTube). It was so much fun!

Week 19: Baby B Would Like to Facetime…

It's been about two months since we last did a Baby Facetime, so we didn't exactly know what to expect. But wow, medical technology is amazing!

Week 18: Goodbye, Pants

I've been getting creative this week with hair ties to extend the waistbands or just letting the top button free. But it's officially time for summer dresses and those… Continue reading Week 18: Goodbye, Pants


Week 17: The Honeymoon Period

As of yesterday I'm 17 weeks pregnant which means Baby B is just about 4 months along and the size of a pomegranate. Wait... I'm 4 months pregnant?! No way. I have a hard time believing that! It feels like yesterday that we found out about Baby B on that Easter Sunday/April Fools Day. Time… Continue reading Week 17: The Honeymoon Period

The Impossible Burger: Is it a game changer?

The Impossible Burger is no ordinary veggie burger. It sizzles like meat, it bleeds like meat, it looks like meat, and it tastes like meat. But it's made entirely from plants.  I think it'll go mainstream because in my 21-year experience as vegetarian, this is the best veggie burger I've ever had. And the company has raised… Continue reading The Impossible Burger: Is it a game changer?
