Postpartum Fitness Update

I’m about 16 weeks postpartum and I’m s l o w l y starting to see the fruits of my labor. As cliche and stupid as it sounds, I started BBG and I’m finishing week three tomorrow. It’s been tough and I’ve been sore all over, but every time I finish those circuits, I feel […]

Cheetos

Do you like them plain, puffed, Flamin’ Hot, Flamin’ Hot with Limón? Perhaps you like the Cheddar Jalapeno, Chipotle Ranch or the XXtra Flamin’ Hot. I like mine Flamin’ Hot with Limón. So good. Just like the many types of Cheetos that are tailored to your palate’s perfection, you can’t deny the many ways to […]

Family Fourth

I hope you had a wonderful 4th of July resting, relaxing and eating a bunch of yummy food! The roads were pretty empty and that’s saying something because here in Los Angeles there is traffic at all hours of the day. I hope people were with family and friends enjoying a meal or two and […]

My Birth Story

I had Everly in 3.5 hours, including labor and delivery. The end. While that’s the shortest labor and birth story ever, let me elaborate on some of the details. I had just sold my car of 13 years that happened to break down a few weeks before Everly was born (it must have been a […]

The Big Reveal

I’ve been meaning to do a gender reveal post, but since the hubs is out of town I had to make do and use photos from last year. At least it’s yellow right? I don’t know who decided yellow was a gender neutral color, but I guess it worked out for me. I don’t really […]

Boycott

I don’t know about you but I’m gonna boycott maternity clothes for as long as I possibly can. I have nothing against it. It’s just a personal choice I’ve decided to make to save myself from unnecessary purchases I don’t plan on wearing long term. My mom bought me three maternity leggings so hopefully that […]

23

I wish I was 23. This post isn’t about Michael Jordan either. It’s actually the first fashion post about styling the baby bump at week 23. Although I’m actually 25 weeks now, I wanted to share one of my holiday pregnancy looks with you. It’s actually been quite difficult to style a growing belly as […]

Thanksgiving

I know I’m a day early, but I just wanted to wish my blogging/Insta community a Happy Thanksgiving! May you count your blessings, enjoy time with friends and family, eat some yummy food and enjoy the Black Friday sales as we officially welcome the holiday season. This year is not a typical year for me […]

Peter Pan Polished

I have to admit that I wear workout gear 3 out of the 5 work days since I work with children with disabilities and I’m going to get sweaty anyway. When I teach my college class, I try to look business formal because I want the students to think I’m much older than them and […]

Sayonara Summer

This summer was long and hot. I only made it to Portland and Vegas, but it was still nice to get out of LA for a while. I can’t wait to get back to school and start teaching. I feel like fall brings a cleanse and a renewed focus that we lose during the long […]
