Happy New Year

Kaitlan - Kohler Created

My mind can not wrap around how different life is from this day last year. It was a year ago yesterday that we found out we were pregnant with Kaitlan. Pregnancy is a long process, but when you think about the fact that we’re here a year later with a complete and thriving little person. […]

Focusing on progress not perfection

#ProgresstoSeiko - Kohler Created

I haven’t even begun to think about New Year’s. I feel like I barely eeked through the holidays this year. In this season of the year, and my life in general, I’m finding it all too easy to be hard on myself for not measuring up to my “old self.” It feels like I’m barely […]

What do I need for breastfeeding and pumping? (Part 1)

Breastfeeding supplies - Kohler Created

  Getting started in breastfeeding and pumping. Yes, I intentionally tried to make that sound like an old-school textbook. I’m by no means turning into a mommy blogger, but as a new parent, I have received so much help and great information that I feel the need to pay it forward somehow. Because I have […]

Friday Link-up and Loving Lately

squat bar - Kohler Created

I swear I am the biggest failed blogger. These weeks, they go SO FREAKING FAST. And it’s really not like there is something monumental happening every day, but every day is a little different, you know? My blog would be epically boring if I was a daily blogger, but there is definitely enough that I […]

3 Months Postpartum

Kaitlan (3months) - Kohler Created

Yes, switching to months because the math is just easier. She’s three months old! She’s definitely not a teeny tiny newborn anymore (I packed up those clothes today), and in the past month I feel like she’s become a little fireball of development. She surprises us with something new every day. I read that babies […]


sprained wrist - kohler created

So it’s been a frustrating week. Yup, screwing around at the gym and sprained my wrist. I won’t go into how, because the mere mention of being injured at CrossFit is enough to puff some hater chests and I really don’t have the energy to defend or rationalize. And really, it’s not so bad, it’s […]

Old School Blogging

Food prep - Kohler Created

I thought I’d just do some old-school rambling. You know, blogging just for the sake of sharing thoughts and feelings — totally unsponsored and unaffiliated. There’s not enough of that going on anymore. My baby is 12 weeks old. Let that sink in for a minute. Wasn’t she just born yesterday!? She keeps hitting all […]

What’s in my makeup bag

What's in my makeup bag - Kohler Created

So a few months ago toward the end of my pregnancy, I wrote about my health and beauty regimen, or really, my lack of. I thought I’d do a little follow-up as I’ve been trying some new stuff and have a few long-time favorites in my makeup bag that I didn’t share in my last […]

Eight Weeks Postpartum

Kaitlan - Kohler Created

Please Note: Currently 10 weeks, but with this post, I will be caught up with postpartum updates! Oh my god, I’m the mother of a 2-month-old. The last eight weeks seriously just disappeared. People do not kid, it flies by so quickly, and yet sometimes so so slowly. I’m honestly excited as the days pass though […]

2014 Barbells for Boobs

Barbells for Boobs - Kohler Created

First, thank you so much for all the love for Felix. He was such an awesome cat and I while I know that all pets have to leave us sometime, I wish our vet would have caught the signs of diabetes that our second-opinion vet said were very clear and would have been seen a […]
