This May Be Oversharing Podcast: Episode 3, Overcoming the Vacation Sads

  Hello hello! I’m back with another podcast episode. I’m releasing this one on Wednesday night instead of Wednesday morning because, well, I hated the first version I recorded. I recorded this one a little faster and more off-the-cuff, and while I know there’s a few editing hiccups, this is still a learning process for […]

My Top Accomplishments of 2018

My friend Felicia is one of my favorite follows on Twitter. In fact, that’s how we met. She is a brilliant marketer, writer, human being with a heart of gold and a dark, dark sense of humor—because you need someone to crack inappropriate depression joke with sometimes. She posted a thread on Twitter about her […]

This May Be Oversharing Podcast: Episode 2, Kat O’Leary

This May Be Oversharing Podcast: Episode 2 I have such admiration for my friend Kat O’Leary, which is why I scheduled her as my first guest! Kat works a 9-5 but has more side hustles than I can count—and more than she can remember! On this episode, Kat and I talk about everything from spirituality […]

My 2018 Cookie Swap!

Last Saturday, I hosted my NINTH cookie swap. (WHAT?)  (2010 | 2011| 2012 | 2013 | 2014 | 2015 | 2016 | 2017) Looking back at those posts really took me back on an emotional journey. The happy, silly cookie swaps. The cookie swaps my mom came to. The surprise cookie swap Meg hosted for me […]

The Day I Learned to Forgive Myself

Do you remember the day you learned to forgive yourself, to accept yourself? I do. It was today. As I sat on my psychiatrist’s couch attempting to suppress my sneezes from a nasty sinus infection, I rattled off my usual litany of random questions. She is a wise and brilliant woman (I look forward to […]

Yoga Diaries: Y7 Yoga Silver Lake

Back with some more yoga diaries! I spent last weekend back in California, and obviously I had to get some yoga in there. The entire time I was in LA this fall, my friend Melissa and I kept missing each other, so we vowed to get together this time. She’s also a yoga teacher, so […]

2018 Cyber Monday Shopping Guide!

As I write this, there are 30 days until Christmas. WHAT? When did this happen? The past few years were the most painful holiday seasons of my life. I hope I’m not being overly optimistic, but I’m ready for this holiday season. I actually even got excited for the season a few days ago—a massive […]

Yoga Diaries: YogaWorks Brooklyn Heights

I’m thinking about starting some kind of Yoga Diaries series here. I’m doing a shit ton of yoga, as I attempt to learn more to inform both my own practice and those I am teaching. Obviously, every class and every instructor is different, and every day on the mat has a lesson to teach me. […]

Life Lately.

This meme is my favorite, whenever I’m feeling just overwhelmed with life I look at this and laugh. It embodies exactly how I’m feeling. 
Still showing the house, almost daily. I’ve only gotten feedback like ‘love the house, love the decor’ but only one low offer so far. Sigh. I do feel better now that I know we can push back our closing date if needed, we may not make the 6/7 deadline. 
I’m living on bare minimums as far as food goes – chicken, salmon, and tuna. Add chips, rice, veggies and I’ve got a meal, usually on a paper plate.
Oliver loved this combo last night {I used low fat butter} and you can bake at 425 for about 15 minutes if you don’t have the Instant Pot. I made jasmine rice and asparagus on the side. Plus you can get a huge salmon at Costco for like 25 bucks and it will make 3-4 meals for us! 
A while ago I had bluebonnet pictures of the kids made, we do it every year, Katie happened to be with me so we did a corny one for my Mom. Then we had a canvas made for Mother’s day.
She has the cutest wall hangings all over her house!
Baby Aiden is finishing up preschool for the year, last week is the last week already! We are planning a low key summer, no camps, no family vacation. We do plan to spend a lot of time swimming and hopefully that means a lot of time napping for them. We will continue with Madison’s soccer and math tutoring which is why we decided to forgo the Y camp this year. I highly recommend YMCA camp if you’re looking for one, they are affordable and keep the kids busy all day. I just think our summer funds are better spent on math tutoring for her, she’ll be STAR testing next year and I want her to be as caught up as possible. Mathnasium has a slightly different summer program, so they will do things to make it fun for the kids, but she enjoys going anyways so I’m not too worried about burnout. 
I’m not sure if I mentioned on here that we switched from Kumon to Mathnasium, but I’m SO GLAD we did. Her grades have shot up since we’ve made the move, I think the difference is that they cover ALL the things she’s struggling with not just a part of it like at Kumon. If you’re curious we were paying 100/month at Kumon and Mathnasium is 260/month. I don’t love the fact that you pay for 6 days a week even if you can’t go that often, I wish they had a cheaper 3 day a week option. I think even 5 days is a lot of extra work for an 8 year old and I don’t want her to start to hate math.
