A few weeks ago, I noticed that our dryer was taking a long time to get our clothes dry. I decided to get my older children to help me do some investigating and try to find the source of the problem. I had a feeling that there was some lint trapped in the dryer hose but after investigating a little bit we discovered…Continue

Nobody would argue that people are busier than ever these days. Between work, spouse, children, home and other commitments, there is more and more competition for our time. And those companies that manufacture goods understand this and cater to the demands of convenience and ease. But at what cost?

We had the most beautiful Spring day in Pittsburgh on Saturday… Sunshine & Blue Skies!
There was still a chill in the air; a perfect day to throw on a scarf! I pulled out my white jeans and wore them for all but a couple of hours before my 3 little boys reminded…Continue

Everyone has their ‘thing’ that motivates them to lose baby weight, get healthy and tone their body. For me, after 9 months of pregnancy, there’s nothing like a NEW OUTFIT in my PRE-PREGNANCY SIZE that motivates me to get my body back!
Some can/will put a time frame on when they want/need to fit…Continue

I got dressed! Like, not yoga pants, a sweatshirt and pony-tail dressed, but really dressed. You know, in real clothes? Having an infant around the house can make any mom compromise her style but I want to show you one of my favorite post-partum ‘looks’ and give you a few tips too…
For me, a comfortable skirt is…Continue

During my weekly pre-natal appointment, I couldn’t help but think about what a shame it is that this practice met me at this point of my pregnancy. I’m definitely not myself. I’m at the end of this roller-coaster ride. Ready for it to be over. Ready to get off and not ride again until I eat an ice-cream cone, take a bathroom break, lounge around,…Continue

FEBRUARY IS OFFICIALLY HERE!!!
Let’s shout it from the rooftop! I made it to February! Only 3 weeks, 3 sleeps to go! Or 24 days! What sounds better? I can’t decide if saying the number 3 vs. 24 or saying the word weeks vs. days sounds better. Either way; I…Continue

As of today, I have 4 weeks, 3 sleeps left in this pregnancy; yippee!!! Unless however, baby decides to make an appearance earlier (which I would be totally fine with). A lot has changed for me this week. Baby dropped and moved off of my sciatic nerve (yay!) and into pressure zone (boo!…Continue

When I was pregnant with my son, I had trouble finding cute maternity clothes. Most of the stores that I went to only had a very small section of maternity clothes. In fact, most stores don’t carry any plus sized maternity clothes unless you go to a specialty maternity store. Plus sized mom’s shouldn’t have to settle for clothes that aren’t comfortable or don’t fit her growing belly. I wanted to help mom’s find cute plus sized maternity clothes without going from store to store and…Continue

In 10 weeks and 5 days, we will officially welcome our third child into this world… I CAN’T WAIT!!! Not that I want to rush through Christmas and New Years but hopefully after that, time will go by fast because I’m ready to start life with 3 little ones! And SOOO excited and ready to meet our precious baby too! So this is my 29th week of pregnancy and while on a hunt for maternity pantyhose (ick!), I found up a pair of sparkly flats and couldn’t pass them up! And I had the…Continue

I’m thrilled to say, I made it to my 3rd trimester in pregnancy! And though this may sound weird, I feel justified now in waddling, groaning when I get up from the floor (or couch) and having that extra piece of chocolate (after the 1st four pieces)! So, this past week I attended a Girls Night Out Party and though I had all intentions of dressing up, it was a cold night, I had a long day with the boys and I just wanted to be comfortable.
Dresses make me feel…Continue

It feels so good to say hello to the 6 month mark! I’m still sporting my scarves these days and nixing a coat! It works for me (for now) but I’m sure with cold days to come, I’ll be forced to pull out my puffy jackets and hats! I popped into Anthropologie for the first time in forever and must admit, I…Continue
This week marked the first time I received a ‘negative’ comment regarding my prego appearance. While out trick-or-treating, I was greeted by a neighbor who said, “So its not just extra clothes you’ve been wearing. You are pregnant!” Followed by, “WOW! You were never this huge with your other 2! It has to be a girl!”
I mean, let’s face it (or I’ll face it)… I know the number on the scale is quite high (for me) at…Continue
