Life Lately: What happens instead of blogging!

Gahhhhhh.  Another “Life Lately” post.  I know, I know you guys want boozy recipes! I really, really wanted to make a jello shot for Cinco de Mayo. (See how far behind I am? It’s almost Memorial Day) But I got a little busy.

And by that I mean drinking watermelon margaritas, eating smores, tasting wine and hanging out with Cookie Monster and my bestie from college.

Life is tough lately. Here is what happens and why I don’t blog:


“Family Friday Night, Family Friday Night, Family Friday Night” Yep we I chant this over and over as soon as it’s upon us.

This is where Austin gets to play in jumping water fountains and mom gets to eat alfresco and drink fancy margaritas. Every. Friday. Night. It’s my new favorite tradition.


Then another time I was going to blog I decided to go for a run to get Austin to fall asleep (he passes out in the running stroller) and when we got back I was really tired and decided to take a shower and do my hair instead.  Then he woke up. Free time over. True story.


The next weekend we went to Sesame Place in Philadelphia. We met up with my bestie from college and her family.  Austin and Sophia were just the cutest thing I have ever seen.

It was SO NICE to hang out with a friend that has the same schedule. That’s never happened before. I didn’t feel guilty for meltdowns at the dinner table, taking out iPhones to calm down said meltdowns, or calling it a night early. They totally GOT IT. The kiddos naps were even timed the same.

Missing them already. Can’t wait for our next family adventure.


And then, something even as simple as grocery shopping keeps me from blogging. Had to stock the fridge with vacation detox foods when we got back. This week we are eating cabbage salads with celery and grapes and a thai peanut dressing and some rotisserie chicken meat for lunch and scrambled egg whites with cheese and asparagus for dinner (poor Nick).

Snacks are cottage cheese, Ellie Quark, melon and peanut butter and bananas.

So ONE HUNDRED PERCENT, I repeat 100% … I will be blogging this weekend. I know I have said that before BUT I have some exciting new partnerships to tell you about and some new work I am going to be doing with with that means I have to step it up (i.e. actually do some work).

A sneak peek into the book is coming soon too! Just waiting on some graphics. Also working on a new video (yessssss). Okay, talk to you soon.

    Oh my gosh, I feel your pain on the blogging front. It’s SO hard to find the time lately. Honestly, I don’t even know how you do all you do! Work full time, young child, book, workout, fun weekend activities. It’s crazy how busy life gets!
