This is what I call a Lazy Mamas Crockpot Dinner! I came up with this dish one morning with no recipe, I wasn’t inspired by anything in particular; I opened my refrigerator and had carrots, pre-sliced mushrooms and chuck roast. That was dinner. You can see how lazy I was because I didn’t even cut the carrots, but with…Continue

Oh my. Valentine’s Day is this week and I am very very pregnant with not much energy by the end of the day to do much. We plan to stay home with our 2 little boys, cook a comforting dinner (bc it’s cold outside!), eat chocolate (that’s a given) and well, just love on each other…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

I’m alive. and large. and Pregnant. Still. I haven’t wrote in my blog recently because honestly, by the end of the night (my blogging/writing time) I’m spent and my brain stops functioning. Literally. It stops. I’ve been a busy little bee around our nest though! Some days I ‘forget’ that I have an extra X lbs attached to my…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

For those of you who don’t know, my parents have owned a hairstyling studio for almost 30 years now and it has been one of the most fun parts of my ‘girly’ life. Growing up, I was able to experiment with hair color, styles, beauty products and more! A girls dream, right? I’ve had some of the best…Continue

I put together this crockpot on a cold, snowy day. I knew by lunch-time that the last thing I wanted to do was stand in the kitchen cooking dinner come 5pm so this was perfect! I put all of the ingredients in the crockpot, stirred and turned it on high for 4 hours.
Though I couldn’t taste anything (thank…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

Have you ever logged onto Facebook and felt like you could comment on just about everyone’s status update?
In a not so kind, bubbly or loving way?
Well, I guess you could say that I know I’ve reached that point in pregnancy where I need to keep quiet. and calm. and hold…Continue

It’s safe to say that I love sweets. And chocolate. And cookies. And well, I’m pregnant too (as if I haven’t mentioned that recently *wink*). Pregnant or not, I will never turn down the opportunity to eat something sweet! I had the chance to review a product (of my choice) from…Continue

*NEW STYLE POST* What I Wore: 34 weeks Pregnant! http://www.thepiggytoes.com/2013/01/16/what-i-wore-34-weeks-pregnant/
Can it be that in just 6 weeks; well, 5 weeks 4 sleeps (who’s counting?) we will meet our 3rd child!?! Time really flew by this pregnancy yet I find myself saying, “I’m not going to make it.” much earlier than I did before! By the end of my days, I’m…Continue

I put this crock-pot together on Sunday when the boys were recovering from the flu. Yes, I already know what you’re thinking… Mexican food? With the flu? Crazy, right? Well, they pretty much spent Friday and Saturday on the couch, eating nothing but toast with jelly,…Continue

There has never been a dull moment in raising our 2 boys. Never. Each day, each week, each month, each year has been such an awesome adventure and has opened my eyes to a whole new world. My way of thinking has changed, the way I view the world around me is different, our way of playing, how we talk… It’s always been…Continue

The start of January meant one thing to me: Baby time! Time to get all of the Christmas decor put away & time to focus on having our 3rd baby! I, like many mamas spend the last couple months of my pregnancies resting and nesting. I call it my ‘R&N Time’… Get the nursery together, wash clothes and blankets,…Continue

I threw this crock-pot together last minute after pre-school and it turned out great! Though the colors in the picture are kind of ‘boring’… the flavor of this dish are NOT! Our boys loved it; and it was even more delicious over Creamy Parmesan Rice! I also steamed their fav veggie- edamame! Wonder why the love edamame? ; ) Its playful and kid friendly – so fun to ‘pop’! Lastly, I didn’t want to take the time to brown the chicken like the directions say, so I literally threw every last…Continue

Let me just start by saying, whoever thought that taking a road trip when your 8 months pregnant… wait, no. I should really start by saying how sweet it was that my hubby took the time to plan a little family getaway after the holidays. In all honesty, it was an awesome idea; one I would normally love if I weren’t 8 months pregnant with a God awful back problem. I knew this would be quite an adventure as it was, taking 2 toddlers and a psycho dog to the mountains. Now…Continue

I can only imagine that every member of my family just read the title and clicked on it so fast thinking I was writing a post about them! Slow your hearts down… I’m writing to all the mamas and friends who have written me over the course of this month. I’m at a stand-still right now with nothing to do. That’s right… NOTHING. It feels odd and I’m a little out of place. I have nothing to bake or cook, nothing to wrap, nothing to clean and only 1 basket of laundry to fold. SO I guess, as…Continue

I love that our little family now has a few traditions throughout the year and this is one of them! Monkey Bread. I only make it one time a year; on Christmas morning and this year I am especially excited for it (probably bc I’m pregnant and have been craaaaving it since December 1st!)
Monkey Bread is prepared on Christmas Eve and left sitting out on the counter until morning. Then, all you have to do when you wake is pop it in the oven, set a timer, and voila! 20 minutes…Continue
