Me time?

I’ve been thinking about the concept of “me time” a lot lately. While it goes without saying that I adore my 6.5 month old daughter, being her primary caregiver 24/7 with no breaks is starting to wear on me a bit. Unfortunately, due to my husband’s career, we currently live in a province with no immediate family and no close friends to give us a break. Let me tell you, I’m feeling pretty badly about not offering to babysit for our friends at our last posting! I had no idea how much an hour or Read more […]

On (and off) the fitness bandwagon

Like many new(ish) mommies, I don’t look quite the same as I did pre-baby. I know I have a good reason – I did grow a person, after all! – but that doesn’t make not fitting into my old clothes feel any better, you know?My baby is 6 months old now, so I’m attempting (half-heartedly) to get back into some shape that isn’t round or squishy. Turns out, it’s much harder to exercise when you have an infant demanding your attention! Long gone are the days of leisurely warming up, then jumping on the Read more […]

What to say?

I’m still really new to this whole blogging thing, and I’m trying to figure out what my “voice” should be. I love reading other Mommy-blogs, and entering to win free stuff – because really, who doesn’t love free? – and eventually, I’d love to be able to do my own reviews and giveaways, but for that to happen, I need readers. And to get readers, I need something for them to read. So, what do people want to read, anyways?I could go on and on about fun stuff like cloth diapers (yup, we use them and Read more […]

A little slice of heaven

This morning started out not-so-great (we’re having some teething issues), but got infinitely better when I realized that Starbucks has rolled out their red cups (ie holiday drinks) today. I got the baby bundled up and we went for a walk to our closest Starbucks – they’re everywhere here, and it’s part of the reason I love it here so much. That, and the fact that we don’t have any snow :)I got lucky and the baby fell asleep on our walk, so for a few blissful minutes, it was just me, a caramel brulee Read more […]

Introduction and stuff

So, I guess I have a blog now. Huh. I never really thought I’d get into this whole blogging thing, so we’ll just have to see how it goes :)A little about me – I’m 28, a Leo/Virgo (so, I like attention and organizing things), love to read although I don’t have much time for it anymore, used to scrapbook all the time but developed some carpal tunnel in both wrists while I was pregnant that put a hold on that, and love celebrity gossip of all kinds. I have no idea what’s happening in Iraq, but I can Read more […]
