Trim Healthy Mama

This is my newest adventure, I'm very excited about it! I ordered the book "Trim healthy mama", and basically I'm hoping that it will help me feed myself and my family in a more healthy, (sugar free), way. And also to get "trim". The recipes are delicious! I did have to invest in some pricey ingredients, such as stevia, flax seed meal, etc. I'm going to meal plan and try to use the least expensive ingredients I can.
I had no idea how much sugar and carbs were in the "healthy" things I was eating,  even bananas and grapes. Not that fruit is bad for you, but berries and apples are much better for you!

These are trim healthy pancakes, grain free and sugar free, topped with berries and plain greek yogurt. DELICIOUS. 
The recipes are pretty much gluten free, there's a lot of dairy, which I'm experimenting with, because some dairy upsets my tummy, and it's not Willow's favorite either, (I'm still nursing).

So welcome to my THM journey, hoping that along with my gym membership....
 this baby weight disappears soon ;)

This is hard work.

Two kids, one mom.

This is hard stuff people! I finally had my emotional break down yesterday while chugging another glass of wine, (I'm not an alcoholic...yet).

There's only one mommy, and I'm supposed to feed, diaper, wash, put to sleep, spend quality time, dress.... TWO children. And in the midst of that if I find a MOMENT to myself it's a miracle.

Especially on the days the newborn decides to eat every hour. God forbid I try to shower myself.

On top of that, I'm supposed to make dinner.............EVERY night. This 3 meals a day thing is a bunch of crap. Isn't 1 good enough? And can't that 1 meal a day be a lunchable?

When I'm not doing any of those things, I'm washing cloth diapers, (which is why willow is temporarily in sposies), or 2 baskets of laundry a least, OR cleaning, because the dishes are piled a mile high every day, and there are crumbs all over the floor from my two year old, and cat hair all over the carpet from the dang cat.

I'm a mess, I don't know how I went a month before losing it. Maybe cuddling my adorable babies was enough to keep me sane.

But now I'm done, now I'm ready for these kids to be 18 and go off to college, or put them in daycare and work full time. I know this is just a phase, we will figure out a routine soon.

So there's my vent for the day.

Anyway, here's my cute baby!

Changes in life.

I've been thinking a lot about my blog, and I feel like some major changes need to take place!
When I started this adventure, I was a newlywed, no kids, working full time as a stylist, traveling, dressing in adorable dresses.

And now, I'm a stay at home mom of two, you guys do NOT want to see what I wear day to day.

It's usually just my underwear and a nursing tank, and even when I go out it's a v-neck and maternity shorts, because I had a baby 3 weeks ago and my pre preg shorts don't fit yet. *face of agony*

Here she is, Willow Laila, born June 29, 7 pounds 7 ounces! Cutest little girl I've ever seen :)

I don't have a disposable income to spend on modcloth dresses, and most of the wouldn't look good on my post partum body anyway!
I have decided to make my blog less fashion and more about my life in general, life with a two year old and a new born, life trying to find flattering clothes with DDD milk boobs, life with cloth diapering and baby wearing, and also about make up and fashion! A mix of everything :)
 I will also be sharing my post baby weight loss journey, AGAIN ;) 

Anyway, there's an update, hoping to write more soon, instead of posting every 6 months when I actually wear a cute outfit. haha.
