As I said in my last post, I'm working on getting back into blogging after so much time off. Because of my other commitments, I'm doing this slowly, so please be patient. I'm working on a whole lot of research, including the benefits of bone broth and "superfood" smoothies, how to heal diastasis recti, more… Continue reading This Blog Is A Work In Progress
As you may already know, a fact which I certainly have admitted to before is this: When I get pregnant, I get really sick. Last November, I learned that I had, indeed, become pregnant with our third baby and went through the usual long-lasting nausea that accompanies my being with child. What we didn't… Continue reading Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia, Part 1: Where I’ve Been the Past (Almost) Year
I just heard you groan. You're thinking, But you just told me that dieting does not necessarily help me lose (or gain) weight. Yes, yes I did. Dieting does not help maintain healthy body weight.

Some… Continue reading Working Out with Toddlers

Let me tell you, I've thought about you and this blog many times, but transitioning out of the military, being a mom, and finding work (and working my Jamberry Nails business) have really consumed my every waking moment. Regardless, I am extremely thrilled to be… Continue reading Share Your Thoughts and Opinions with Me!
First off, Happy New Year! I hope that you find much joy in it. When things get hard, think about how far you've come instead of focusing on where things went wrong! Second, I know I promised a third part to my major articles and links series in December, but life ate me. Seriously.… Continue reading May 2016 Bring You Joy!
I haven't been on hardly at all lately. I've been caught between three giants that are taking all of my time: My family, because that's just where it's at 🙂 Getting ready to move to MI in December--this is fast approaching! National Novel Writing Month because it's awesome! I suppose I should add Jamberry onto… Continue reading Where In the World Have I Been? (Articles & Recipes, Part 1)
