April was supposed to be our month. We both celebrate birthdays in April. We’d been on our house search and our goal was to buy something by April—plenty of time to close and move in before the wedding. Well, April was our month alright, just not remotely how we imagined… April 1st—I get the most heebie-jeebie, skin-crawly sensation in my […]

And the winner is… (by Mara Unterberger)

July 22, 2013

I have had quite the long history with my boobs. I can remember from a young age wanting to hide them because I bloomed early. When my mom first encouraged me to wear a bra I insisted on only wearing sports bras because I felt that they weren’t really bras. Once I realized what control my boobs had over men […]

You know how you never really feel like a grown up? Like two mortgages, two cars, three children should be a pretty good sign that I’m grown up but I still keep expecting someone to march through the front door and override me (and no I’m not talking about what my five year old does everyday). Anyway, I feel just […]

Vacation 2013 Wrap Up

July 9, 2013

Well, we survived our first family of five vacation! We packed especially light… Manuevered the airport seamlessly… Took in scenic views… We spent lazy mornings in bed… We spent days being pampered… And constantly got along… There were tons of opportunities to capture my beautiful family of five… All in all, though, we had a great time and I had […]

Dear Gabby,

June 26, 2013

Happy 3rd birthday to my beautiful, smart, spunky little person. I know this has been a hard and exciting year for you. You had to learn to share your mommy with our new baby, but you have also learned to be a little mommy to our baby. The love and enthusiasm you give to Noah is so sweet and special. […]

Dear Drew,

June 12, 2013

The other day you asked me why I am so mean to you, it made me think. Sophomore year of college I was struggling to get around without a car. When I talked to my mom about it and how my high school car wouldn’t work going back and forth, she bought me a new car. I was so surprised […]

Weighing In

April 17, 2013

I fought the fight for three solid months that I was not going to give in and my baby was going to be exclusively breastfed. It wasn’t until the second month in a row where my little butterball was lacking in butter that I caved. It might have had something to do with the doctor looking at me with those […]

Shuffling to the Finish

April 8, 2013

Well, I did it. I had a baby, rested up, hit the gym hard and crossed the finish line yesterday. And I, of course, had many thoughts on the matter… For one, running is sorta like pregnancy and childbirth. I spend the majority of the time hating how I feel, all culminating to one enormous pain (in this case it […]

3 Months

March 7, 2013

Thirteen days until I can take Noah to the gym with me. I have been so focused on that marker, a point which will alleviate some of the chaos of my life. Instead of dropping Drew off at school, Noah at my parents’ and Gabby at the gym kids club, we’ll be streamlined to two steps. Phew. The last week, […]

Status Update

January 14, 2013

The last time I felt, as I did this morning, was after a long night of heavy drinking. There was nothing fun about the party I survived last night. The headache I woke up to was less fun than any hungover headache I have ever had. And rocking the night away has a whole other meaning! When my wake up […]
