Sick Tall Mom

After running errands, and fitting in some play time, Itty Bitty truly had a full day yesterday. I tried to make sure he was eating and drinking enough, but I seemed to have forgotten about myself. At 3:20pm, a massive migraine struck, and I had no choice but to lay down. Itty Bitty was, thankfully, exhausted as well, and I put him down for a rather late nap. Ideally we like him to go down about 1:30pm, but we were…

What I Did This Weekend – The Ms. Tri-State Pageant

I am writing this blog post at 2:30am on a Monday morning. Itty Bitty is sound asleep, and the usual culprit of my late nights– new parent induced insomnia — isn’t to blame.  I’m up because of a wonderful natural high. That, and incessant charlie horses and cramps that keep bending my toes and feet into contortionist like positions. Ouch. That’s what I get for wearing 5 inch heels for almost 10 hours straight, right? Why the heck would I…

Making Healthy Choices and Getting Fit in Providence Rhode Island – #BalanceRewards #shop

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. Being a new mom often makes you push your own personal wellness priorities to the back seat. But for how long can one use the excuse “I’m a new mom,” or “I’m too busy to take care of myself like I used to?” I’m no longer allowing myself to make any excuses in regards to my health. In my opinion, 2013 was all…

I Said Goodbye To Frizzy Hair Thanks To The Keratin Concept

It’s a rainy day here in Rhode Island, so I thought I’d share with you a fun little story. I vividly remember the day I first found out I was going grey. I was at the Ryan Center at the University of Rhode Island, vocally warming up with my a cappella group, Afterhours.  We were preparing to sing the national anthem before a basketball game, and our hearts were all beaming with excitement. As we were huddled in a circle…
