I’ve gone for a long walk every day since the weather warmed up on Friday; it’s been wonderful! I like being able to bundle Jax up (he falls asleep right away), listen to music and walk for an hour. It clears my head and I feel refreshed when we get home.
While I’m pleased that it’s already helping me shed the last few pregnancy pounds, I’m way more excited about the toned legs I get when I’m walking a lot. I think I gained weight in my thighs while I was pregnant! Such an uncomfortable feeling that I’m excited to fix.
My dad also offered to watch Jax if I want to go out for a bit…..so I may look in to going to a yoga class once a week. For now that’s all that I can manage until he’s a bit older when we can do momma & baby yoga. I don’t want to overuse my parents help and burn them out.
Finally. FINALLY. I just had to have a baby the year of the worst winter in 25 years and be stuck inside for 2.5 months! Ha. Oh well, it’s warming up…Today was 2 degrees…I walked in a sweater! It was gorgeous. I went for 2 walks, actually….my legs are sore! Pushing a stroller uphill while completely out of shape is TOUGH!
I need to remind myself of this. That being said…dishes, laundry and other chores are what I do during “me time” because it relaxes me. I’m not doing chores instead of spending time with Jax.
Let’s just take a moment to appreciate my brother’s beard. Is it weird that I’m posting this picture? I dunno. It’s on the Facebook page for his beer club so I doubt he’d care.
An oversized, beer drinking, hairy baby. Yuuuup. (Just kidding.)
As much as I love my green smoothie, I really wish this was beer. Mmmm.
Stone cold fox. Dayum.
Think about the first name you were ever called,
and then think how long it took until
you got called a pussy
or a slut,
or a bitch,
or a whore,
all of which are words that fall too close to ‘girl.’
Think about the first time you got called a ‘girl’
and they said it with a sneer.
Like it was a bad thing.
For a boy, it is the lowest degradation to get called a girl.
For a girl, it is the lowest degradation to get called a girl.
Remember, black widow spiders and female praying mantises eat their partners after intercourse.
Remember, it’s the lionesses who hunt.
They come back with bloody muzzles, dragging bloated carcasses as the alpha lion strides around with his mane puffing out.
Remember, it’s only the female mosquitoes who drink blood.
We’re the ones who do the necessary work, dirty our hands,
fuck or fight or both.
We’re often the smaller sex, which makes us a harder target
as we slink close and sink our teeth in.
Remember: we’re deadly.
You should be proud to be called a girl."
Can I get a hell yeah?
the worst things to ever happen to fashion:
- fake pockets
- making every single shirt see through
- seriously why does it have to be see through
- what is the fucking point i just have to wear another tank top or cami underneath it
- it literally defeats the purpose of being a shirt
- and every single shirt is see through these days this annoys me more than fake pockets and trust me that is an issue
I’m glad I found this audio because the video is pure cheese. I love when classically trained musicians cover modern(ish) music and I LOVE Michael Jackson. THE ENDING, OH LORD. Awe inspiring.

This behaviour is NOT OKAY. RAISE YOUR SONS TO RESPECT WOMEN AND NOT BE MINDLESS FOLLOWERS. Not all men are mindless rapists, but there’s WAY too many that think that they have the RIGHT to force sex on girls and women. It’s wrong. It starts with our children. As I said…RAISE YOUR SONS TO RESPECT ALL WOMEN. No one deserves this. NO ONE, EVER.
1. Is this real? He’s been asleep like this for almost an hour. No soother, no rocking, no swinging. I…I’m not sure how to react. He woke up every 2-3 hours throughout the night and has already had a 45 minute nap since 6:30 this morning! I’ve kept him busy singing and dancing around more than I usually would, so I guess he’s worn out from laughing!
2. I love breakfast. This is my new obsession. Smear apple slices with peanut butter and sprinkle raisins, pumpkin seeds and sunflowers seeds on it. Deeelicious.
Recently he started napping during the day as long as I snuggle him and stroke his nose when he starts fussing. Cute and weird. WHAT EVER IT TAKES.
Behind the scenes: I dropped my phone on him when I tried to pick it up off my knee. How?! No idea. Don’t pretend you haven’t done it least once! 😛
Chris went in to work today even though it’s his day off (and that is lame) so it’s just us today. It’s supposed to warm up to 2 degrees, so we’re definitely going for a long walk after lunch!
