Random Rambles…

Happy Sunday (night)!

This is your last chance to enter to win a sparkly soul headband!


The winner will be announced tomorrow whenever I get my post out. We’re going to chat more about the undulation rope.


So, what’s up? Did you all have a nice weekend? We did a lot of the usual. Dinner Friday night….as I type I can’t even remember where we went? That’s pretty bad, huh? Mike’s in the shower so I can’t even ask him like I ask him everything I can’t remember. Like, what the weather is supposed to be? What I went into the kitchen to get? What my moms name is? I’m scary. It’s beyond mommy brain at this point.

It’s not even like I drink.


Although I was harassing our friend on Saturday to give me his martini olives. Michael swore they made me tipsy. It’s pathetic.

My brothers girlfriend is the bartender so we just kept asking her to 2 sets of olives at a time. I’m so weird… The obsession developed with martini olives when I was pregnant. Soaked in a virgin Mary…mmmmm. Now I love them fresh out of the martini glass. I actually haven’t had a martini since my 21st birthday when Michael fed them to me alllll night at Blue Martini downtown –and my brother had to take care of me for 2 days after. It’s actually why I really don’t drink at all (except a glass of wine or a beer here and there). Lightweight.

Today we had a first birthday party of friends of our little boy. Ella’s little boyfriend.. We were actually really excited about it for the past few weeks since it was her first kid party! There were way more adults than kids, but it was still cute. We are starting to plan Ella’s party now…3 months away! Crazy!!! Any party planning tips are appreciated!


When we got home I realized that I had forgotten I wanted to take a picture in her cute outfit.She already had the shoes off and she was crawling all over the place so it didn’t happen. I caught her re-arranging her bookcase (that I shortly after straightened up finally)


Her first tooth broke though yesterday. Finally. It’s so teeny but so cute.

Her sleeping has been so inconsistent lately and unpredictable. Don’t take ANY sleep advice from me. I am so weak. I could never do the let her cry thing, and half the time I rock her in her nursery between the sound sleeper, the comfy glider and her cool room (and snuggly self) I doze off with her. When I do put her in there almost asleep, 10 minutes later we get this…


Crocodile tears.


I had more for you guys….but if you read the third paragraph you’d understand why I’m ending it here. It’s late. Mike and I are going to check out that new show “Luck” on HBO then I’m going to head to bed. Work and back in the gym tomorrow. Can’t wait.

We’ll chat more fitness and food tomorrow.

    Ella’s outfit is so so cute! And the pic with her crocodile tears cracks me up! What a little ham she is!

    I’m enjoying vino again and oh how wonderful it is, but it certainly doesn’t take me much to get a buzz. I’m a renewed lightweight.

    Have a great start to your week lovely!

    My hubby and I have been reading about sleep patterns and such bc I have a friend who has a child that is almost 2 and will not go to sleep without mom or dad lulling him to sleep. I’m a huge softy and can only truly speak when I have my own little one but we both agreed we are going to try our best to let them cry it out when the time comes and not sleep with them. Who knows what will happen when baby C arrives but that is our plan lol

    I could never let Matthew cry it out when he was a baby either–I’d rather cuddle it out with him 🙂
    Sleep deprivation is serious business—maybe you’ve just got sleepy brain!
