Can I have those ropes?   I still have some of my makeup on from yesterday. I got most of it off but can’t seem to figure out how to get the eyeliner off and not screw up my lashes. So I’ll just keep it for another day. It looks good anyway. So the photo … Continued

Chokes and Arm Bars   My mood is off.   I don’t know why.  Could be that I’m tired…could be catching a cold…could be it’s been too long since Josh has been home.   Not sure. Yesterday the boys had their very first BJJ tournament.  I’d say it went well.   By luck of the … Continued

Where’s my kitchen?   One of the strange things about being military and moving every few years is that sometimes my brain forgets where I live.   Last night, not only did my brain think we moved to a new house, but I couldn’t remember where we came from.   It was a strange panicky … Continued

Daily Grind   I’m sorry I haven’t written as often.  My ability to write is directly tied to a specific time of day.  Morning.  And lately… my mornings have been unpredictable.   Restful sleep is now a distant memory and I catch myself thinking about what it will feel like to sleep through the night … Continued

Coffee Couch   I’m sleep deprived.  Very. Georgia has been fairly inconsistent in her sleep patterns but our 13-year-old lab Daisy is pretty obnoxious….consistently.   Last night Georgia woke up 4 times.  Usually, it isn’t that many.  Then after she was finally asleep, Daisy woke me up by barking to be let out of her … Continued

Just say no   I almost typed March 25. Nope Christy…it’s not March. That weird time warp feeling has happened to me more than a few times lately. It makes me feel like I’ve lost my mind. I think it has something to do with pregnancy and postpartum hormones…but could also just be a result … Continued

Mom Brain…   Sometimes I sit on my little couch in my office and balance coffee between my pillows and my leg.  Well today, I spilled it and it burned my butt. I really need to get an ottoman or something in here.  Oh wait, I know why I don’t have an ottoman in my office. … Continued

Picture day    I am nervous. Today is my photoshoot and I’m going to Seattle with Georgia to have my hair and makeup done, take pictures and celebrate. Celebrate what you ask? Well… I guess me…at this postpartum stage…right now.   Normally words just dump out of my head when I write. But today they are … Continued

Punching bricks   Yesterday I took both boys to 2 separate doctor’s appointments for nagging issues.   Henry has been complaining of ear pain, but with no fever, I was hoping it was just sinus pressure.   Well, I took him in yesterday and turns out he had impacted wax pressing against his eardrum…again.   … Continued

Don’t Eat That!   Last night Logan got to feel the baby kick.   He didn’t want to at first… I think it scared him a little bit…but then when he did, it was all smiles.  He couldn’t believe it.  He said it was like a little troll in there trying to get out. Welp … … Continued

Time Budget I didn’t sleep well last night.  Not sure why.  I woke up around 3 and then couldn’t fall back asleep.  I had this funny thought that I was like a rotisserie chicken because I just kept flipping and turning to find a spot I would fall back to sleep. I remember thinking around … Continued

​​​​​​Crazy Town Today is Henry’s birthday.   He is 8. We are going to celebrate by going out to dinner and having cake.  Henry picked Outback for dinner.  We never go there, so I have no idea why he picked that spot…but it’s his birthday…so I’m not mad about having steak. Today will be lots of cuddles … Continued

Birth Squats Yesterday I made a post on instagram about squatting to give birth.   I posted a picture of me doing a goblet squat and in the caption commented that with both Logan and Henry, I gave birth on my back, completely numb.  With baby number 3, I am going to try to be in different … Continued

​Push to that Rock Mentally I play a game…. It has always helped me do things that feel hard.   I break the “thing” up into manageable bites and then repeat that interval. I mentioned this to you once before in regards to dishes.  I only pick up 10 dishes at a time… leave the rest … Continued

Talk to Myself It’s Christmas Eve.  I’ll be honest.  All week long…probably like many of you…I have been stressing about gaining weight.   I have thought about it way more times than I would like to admit.   Yes.. I’m know supposed to gain pregnancy weight, but I know it has sped up a little the past … Continued

Window Within This morning I have my anatomy ultrasound.   If I remember correctly from 8 years ago, they basically check the baby’s heart, all the organs, head size etc.  They also tell you the gender if you don’t know it. Unlike with the boys, I found out her gender at about 13 weeks.   I was … Continued

Ruffles and Bows I’m back from a one night trip to the mountains.   I took the boys and met a friend in a cabin.  She brought kids too, so together they had a blast sledding, digging igloos and warming up with snacks and treats.  I got to do a 2 mile snow shoe hike in the woods … Continued

Too Big for Yukon Guess what popped up in my facebook “on this day?” A picture of me, 38 weeks pregnant with Henry.   Makes sense because his birthday is just around the corner. Looking at the picture I’m not sure if I feel excited or afraid.  Probably both.   I was cute but gigantic.   It’s hard … Continued

Double Mindset In my closet I have about 40 workout tops.  3 of them currently fit.  I’ve been cycling through my workout pants and they still work for now. All of a sudden, my baby bump just seems much bigger. My body is changing rapidly at this point.  It’s a bizarre feeling.   I wake up … Continued

Lean In The boys started taking Jiu Jitsu about a month ago.  Now they go 3x a week at a spot right above my CrossFit gym.  They received gi’s for Christmas from my sister and for 45 min a session they learn a combination of what I would best describe as wrestling and survival. They seem … Continued
