Snow Day

March 2, 2015

It’s very rare that we get snow worth talking about in Albuquerque.

But this weekend we got hit by a pretty good storm, which left us with almost 6 inches of snow! Even though the snow has kept me indoors and away from the gym, I still loved waking up to all the powdery white that was blanketing the whole back yard.

Logan woke up and I showed him the snow falling out the window. “oooohhh, know, know” with the cutest little toddler voice and pointer finger pointing out all the white. Then he saw his slide and almost freaked. “Uh-oh maaaaaam, halp, halp!”. Never thought a slide buried in snow could cause a breakdown.

We did a few snowman crafts indoors to let it warm up a little outside. Construction paper, glue, google eyes — we built a snowman, and I found myself getting that damn song stuck in my head. Drew snowflakes with chalk.

Then we dawned our fuzzy boots.

We went out for a walk and to gather up some snow.

I’ve heard and seen so many posts about Snow Cream, but we never have snow, so I was determined to make some this time around. After a nice stroll, with some sprints added in, we were ready to come inside and warm up, or cool off, I’m not sure which one yet. But the Snow Cream definitely helped.

This stuff is to.die.for. and I kinda wanna live where the polar bears do so that I can make this everyday. 1/2 c Silk Cashew Milk, 1/4 cup sugar, splash of vanilla, 4-6 cups fresh snow, sprinkles — and a splash of coffee added in to mommy’s cup [I shoulda done a shot of Baileys].

Having a snow day was fun and unexpected, but it’s already starting to melt, so back to the dessert tomorrow.

My Miscarriage

February 25, 2015

I debated long and hard about whether I wanted to write this post. I realized though going through this process that there are so many women who are or have gone through the same thing. Hearing someone else’s story has been a big help to me. Being able to connect, and knowing that you’re not […]

How Not to Loose Your Mommy Marbles

February 24, 2015

Oh my. People always said having kids was hard and I used to laugh it off [and think that my kid was gonna be this totally unique child who was well manner, listed to every word I said, and never threw a tantrum]. Then, I actually had a kid, and realized how wrong I was. […]

Spring Break Body READY

February 16, 2015

I’m almost afraid to talk about it — SPRING. Like, the time we all kind of come out of hybernation and realize exactly what happened to us during the winter time. We’ve got that pale un-seen sunshine skin, we may still be carrying some holiday weight, and our energy is zapped because time change is […]

What {the baby and} I Ate Wednesday

February 12, 2015

Let’s get to some eats! My fuel for the gym was my Spark/Rehydrate/Arginine Extreme/Mass Impact/BioCharge with 3 Catalyst. Breakfast was some easy oats and egg whites. Logan had the same thing, on a smaller version — but no MNS for him. I didn’t snap any pictures of our snack because we were out running errands, but […]

vday card 2

Since having Logan, holidays have become a little more special, and Valentine’s Day is no exception. I actually feel kind of bad, because I don’t really think about Lucas for these holidays anymore, now I think about all the fun things I can do with Logan, cute things I can get him, and how we […]
