No one is denying children aren’t the gift that keep on giving. But, as a parent, there are just some tasks in day to day adult life that shouldn’t be accompanied by kids. Namely the weekly food shop. Opening yourself up to a world of whining, potential tantrums and…

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…

Crockpot Chicken Tortilla Soup

http://www.thepiggytoes.com/2013/01/14/crockpot-chicken-tortilla-soup/

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,…

Our Life with Boys... through my iPhone

http://www.thepiggytoes.com/2013/01/09/life-through-my-iphone/

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…

OB-GYN Drama

http://www.thepiggytoes.com/2013/01/04/ob-gyn-drama/

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,…

Crockpot Lemon Garlic Chicken

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…

What an Adventure...

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…

Holiday Drama

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…

Christmas Breakfast Tradition: Monkey Bread

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…

Life, Links and a Recipe

Coffee?  Tea?  Let’s chat!  I’m here and still alive but this is the time of year I usually feel like I fall off the face of the earth.  I feel like I’ve been so focused and wrapped up in my own little family of 4 (soon to be 5) and realize that I’ve not given much attention to those around me!  Is that normal?  Is it just what happens at certain stages of motherhood?  I’m definitely in that stage.  Sometimes I get overwhelmed when I try to keep up.  Sometimes scrolling through…

We started off the month with a jam packed weekend!  I knew it was December because of the amount of activities we packed into 2 days.  I’m still alive (and still prego) and all is well with our PiggyToes!  This…

Give Thanks

Happy Thanksgiving! (a few days late)

Are you exhausted? ; )  This was the first Thanksgiving I hosted and not that I didn’t know it was a lot of work but I think being pregnant with an achy back just made all of the work a *little harder!  I was so sore and sleepy on black Friday but it was so worth it!  The memories, the smell of Thanksgiving in our home all day, watching the Thanksgiving Day Parade and the comfort of being together with nowhere…

Welcome to our Toy-Room

http://www.thepiggytoes.com/2012/11/16/welcome-to-our-toy-room/

One of the joys of, well, all of my pregnancies is that I organize and re-organize everything.  Tell me you’re the same way, yes?  During my last ‘nesting session’, I hit the toy room, purged lots of toys and re-organized everything.  My head was spinning with options as to what to do with all of their toys and…

What I Wore: 6 Months Pregnant!

http://www.thepiggytoes.com/2012/11/14/hello-6-months/

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…

A Letter to my Son on his Birthday

http://www.thepiggytoes.com/2012/11/13/a-letter-to-my-son-on-his-birthday/

3 years ago today, our Roman was born.  I woke early and felt great but I was nervous about what was to come.  I can remember thinking about how crazy it was that I felt so good and in just a few short hours, I would be in a lot of pain.  Repeat C-Section.  I bent over and touched my toes, twisted…
