Lisette High Waist Leggings

Even though I have mainly worked out at the home the past 4 years, I still like to have workout clothes that I feel really good in! I want stuff that fits, is comfortable and that I could wear out of the house.  With the whole athleisure trend, I love when I can wear my workout clothes not just to workout but also to grab lunch or run errands!

Guys, I have a total weakness for baked goods. Mmm. It’s partially a “comfort” thing because I grew up baking with my mom and sisters. It makes me happy!  My 3 year old already bakes with me all the time. We try to balance making healthier dishes with treats like this though.  He’s not even a big cinnamon roll eater- he just wants the icing and sugar haha

I know I just posted a recipe here the other day but I had to get this recipe up in time for Mother’s Day because there is no treat I’d want more than this one!

I’m a bit obsessive when it comes to packing for trips. I don’t know why… I’m not usually a very organized person but there’s something about traveling that brings it out in me, I guess!  I’ll pack a week early, plan out outfits, buy travel sized items etc  So when my husband and I decided we were going to drive to North Carolina (from WA State), I started planning it out right away!

I asked you guys if you wanted me to share this recipe on  my blog despite it not being the most “nutritious” and you said YES so here you go!

These are not a nutritionally dense muffin so if that’s what you’re looking for, keep looking. haha These are definitely more an indulgent, impress your friends muffin that no one will be able to resist!

Placenta

Okay, I know, some people are totally grossed out by the thought of keeping and consuming your placenta…  but I really do feel like it helps with recovery! With my first baby I had it encapsulated but with my second I consumed it raw in a smoothie where I couldn’t taste it at all! In fact, I found the encapsulated pills had a stronger taste.  I definitely “bounced back” energy-wise a lot faster after my second baby;

This little ray on sunshine has been with us for over two months now! It actually feels weird to say that because already life before her seems FOREVER ago! It’s as if she has always been with us. I think because she fits into our family so perfectly!  I was nervous about going from one to two children and don’t get me wrong it is very hard at times but overall I love it! And yes,

I started choosing a word for the year instead of setting resolutions a few years ago. I love it! I love that it is more open ended and not so much about reaching a particular goal. There’s less pressure and more room to grow which is what you really want a new year to be about, right?

Last year my word was ‘daring’ and I’ll be honest, there were multiple times during the year where I felt like I was failing at that!

I’ve been a mom of two for one month now!

I’ll admit I was nervous about going from one child to two. Everyone says it’s a tough transition! And, well, they’re right. Haha But I had thought it’d be the newborn that felt like more work but really, for us, it’s not! Finnley is a pretty chill baby. She sleeps well (as long as she’s with someone) and only cries or fusses to be held/fed/changed.

Fall and Winter are my favourite months to diffuse essential oils! Below I’m sharing some of my favourite blends that you can diffuse and have your home smell like Fall. Great thing about essential oils is not only do you get amazing scents but you also get the health benefits!

Of course, not all oils are safe for everyone!  I have made a point to note which blends are not safe for certain people/ages.

Somehow, I am already 32 weeks pregnant. Um, what?! Second trimester always seems to fly by! I think even more so this time because it was Summer so I was extra busy!

I’ve now reached that uncomfortable stage and it’s getting hard to sleep at night but still, overall, I think I have pretty great pregnancies and I’m very thankful for that!

I thought I’d do a recap of my second trimester outfits.
