Meet Little Miss Hannah

Meet Miss Hannah! She was born on September 23 at 2:58 pm. On Sunday, my water began to leak and by Monday morning I was in labor.  My husband and I headed to the hospital.  I was admitted by 11:40 am and everything else happened really fast.  By 3 pm, my husband was holding her […]

Nesting: Crocheted chevron blanket with flowers

I have never been a crochet person. I find knitting to be much easier, but I also do not like to feel defeated by something. When I was poking around on Pinterest, I found this pattern http://www.redheart.com/free-patterns/rickrack-rainbow-baby-blanket and started asking my mom (the master crochet woman in my life) how difficult she thought it’d be. To […]

Fit Prego: Pain & Gain

Baby bellies! I’m sure going to miss this but I may be too busy enjoying some new baby smell. The weight though…I won’t miss monitoring the gain!  It hasn’t been easy for me. Never has been. I’ve always stepped into a pregnancy already obese or overweight. I’ve never been allowed to gain a lot. I […]

Fit Prego: You might wonder…

You might be asking…why this picture?  Well these jeans are the very same ones I continue to talk about.  They are my Vera Wang size 14 capris.  Of course, they no longer go over any part of the belly but the rest of my body has remained the same!  I did it!  I did it […]

Fit Prego: Good to go

We have made it to the good to go! Still healthy and holding strong! The doctor has been testing my thyroid and the hormones with the medication seem to be doing well. Baby is doing great. It’s quite odd going from overweight pregnancies to this one. I was always kind of content and didn’t really […]

Nesting: Car seat blanket

There are so many ideas out there…so many ways to customize a certain concept.  I sat down and decided to combine a handful together to better suit our needs for a car seat blanket. Inspiration from… http://ahandmadechildhood.blogspot.com/2012/01/nesting-35-hooded-car-seat-blanket.html http://www.running-w-scissors.com/2011/03/car-seat-blanket.html http://www.imperfecthomemaking.com/2012/01/tutorial-hooded-car-seat-blankies.html My main concern with making one of these was the overheating issue we have had with […]
