If you follow me on Instagram, you know that I’m participating in Ali Edwards’ Week in the Life! I’m super excited, as this is the first time I’m putting real effort into completing this project. I think it will be awesome to have a mini album that showcases what our life looks like right now, especially since Althea is growing up TOO fast, and things will be so different at this time next year! In an effort to keep things organized, and so I don’t forget the details when I go to put my album together next week, I’ve decided to post about each day here! I hope you enjoy a little peek inside our day-to-day life, beyond what we’d normally post on Social Media :)

Sunday Reflections

Up early for Mass! Didn’t get much sleep after a late night out. I use the Sleep Cycle app as an alarm, but since I put my phone on my nightstand, it looks like I slept really hard. I actually tossed and turned all night, because I don’t like being alone!

I wore the cross my dad gave me last week for Confirmation to Mass today. It was a nice change to go by myself and actually pay attention to the whole thing. Also, the Eucharist. So awesome.

He’s home!!! And he brought a LOT of beer back with him 😳  We bought this fridge from a friend when I was overflowing our kitchen freezer with breastmilk. We never did get it hooked up when we needed it back then, and now that I’m done with that, we turned it into beer and pop storage instead.

It’s a beautiful day for a Baseball Game!! We bought my parents tickets to see the Pirates play the Yankees as a thank you for helping us so much with house upgrades. It was the perfect day and we had a great time! Let’s Go Bucs!

Thea had a really big day at the ball game! First, the tv cameraman was filming her, then she was on the Jumbotron, and then she got to run the bases! We joke because it took me 30 years to get on a jumbotron, but it only took Thea 15 months!

After the game, we took a walk around the Strip District, and Grandma and Pap found a wine tasting. Luckily they had something to keep a bird busy! (Well, until she started eating the chalk and we had to take it away from her!)

She is wore out after a jam-packed weekend. Love that little double butt chin 😍

Today was busy and my parents have taken over the spare bedroom so I didn’t think I’d get a chance to do my yogacamp session. I was in bed, but couldn’t sleep thinking about how I didn’t want to miss it. Decided to roll out my mat in the living room and get it done.

——-

I’m so glad I completed a full week of this project! I think I’ve shown a good representation of a typical week in our life right now, and I look forward to having this as a comparison for years to come! Next year could look at whole lot different, as we try for baby #2 and potentially move to a new, forever, home! I hope you’ve enjoyed following along and getting this little peek into our real life!

Saturday Reflections

Today is unusual. Jut just left for an overnight event with his brother, and my Bird and I have a busy day ahead. I’m up super early to get a few things done before she wakes. First thing on the list is posting my words and photos for yesterday.

Today is unusual. Getting my yogacamp session in early. I’m definitely not as flexible in the morning, but it felt good to stretch, and I’m looking forward to seeing what kind of effect this has on my mood for the remainder of the day.

Today is unusual. I was about to make us eggs for breakfast, but then I realized the best husband and daddy in the world left the bottom of his muffin for Thea so I don’t have to share mine. #everybodyneedsajustin

Today is unusual. We’re used to running out the door 10 minutes late to everywhere we go. Somehow, we had lots of time to waste this morning, so we tried to get to the Big Book Sale at the Oakmont Library, but we were very disappointed by the lack of children’s books available 🙁

Today is unusual. Taking a day trip to Erie with my girl, to attend a bridal shower for my brother’s fiancè. I remembered to fill up before we left, so I don’t run out on the turnpike again!

Today is unusual. She’s so mad at me but just got in a solid 2-hour nap. She’s tired of being in her car seat, she’s hungry, and she probably needs a diaper.

Today is unusual. Someone handed her a basket of toys to play with, and instead of picking up the dinosaurs she went right for all the gross bugs!

Today is unusual. I found a new scratch on the car, but this time it wasn’t my fault! No idea where it came from.

Today is unusual. Shopping lately is all about Althea, and rarely about either of the adults in this house. Mama is in desperate need of new bras, and VS is having a sale, so Thea’s hanging out with Grandma and Pap while I make my selections!

Today is unusual. She’s up two hours past her bedtime, but we took the risk of taking her out to dinner at TGIFridays, and surprisingly, she’s being a complete Angel!

Today is unusual. Starting round 2.2. Praying we’ll have some good news to share in a few weeks!

Today is unusual. I think I can count on one hand how many times I’ve gone to bed alone since we got married. I’m not a fan, and I’m going to hug him so tight when he returns tomorrow.

Sometimes I think this can’t be real life

March 27, 2017

Alternatively titled: I believe in soulmates, and I believe I found mine. (And I’m pretty sure my husband found his, as well!) *This post will be schmoopy, and mushy, and may seem a bit braggy (though I promise that’s not what I’m going for). Don’t say I didn’t warn you. When Justin and I met, neither […]

In an effort to blog more often, I’ve decided to share a few tidbits about what’s going on around here. Perhaps I’ll find the time to make this a regular check-in. Going strong with no sugar or processed food during Lent! We allowed ourselves to take part in “Indulge Sunday” with breakfast from Oakmont Bakery, […]

Here we go again!

March 20, 2017

I have stared at this screen for longer than I care to admit, debating whether I wanted to put this out to the world or not. For one, telling people makes it real, which is scary. For two, it means people will form an opinion, and even at 33 years old, for me, that is […]
