Fresh Starts

Tie my shoes. Fight the dog off. Retie my shoes. Open the front door and take a deep breath. Stretch. Start my running playlist. I can do this.  Mile One: it was fine. Yes, I was definitely slower than my 12 minute mile pace. Okay, I was a lot slower. Whatever. It’s fine. Check my … Continue reading

French Onion Soup – 7pp

French Onion Soup – 7pp

FRENCH ONION SOUP – 7pp   I’ve had quite a few people ask me about French Onion Soup. Is it hard to make? How do you make it? Can I have some? Etc. French Onion Soup is probably one of the easiest soups to make in my opinion. It’s incredibly flexible. Don’t like beer? Use … Continue reading

Operation Stop Stressing and Make a Baby

CVS sent my shipment of Fertility meds. There is nothing more depressing than having a sharps container in your house for your fertility needles. Whomp whomp. I had an ultrasound done the day before we left for the beach to see how I’d responded to the Femara. My NP called me back an hour later … Continue reading

I still remember exactly what I was wearing the day the ultrasound tech couldn’t find the heartbeat. It’s been 51 … Continue reading

Protein Milkshake Bar Review

Protein Milkshake Bar Review

The folks at the Protein Milkshake Bar reached out to me and asked me if I’d like to try a sample and do a review. They let me choose my flavor, and honestly, it was a difficult decision choosing between Rocky Road and chocolate mousse for me. So, I got my sample and the first thing I did was … Continue reading

Health Screening BS

Health Screening BS

It’s the most wonderful time of the year. Our annual work health screening. /sarcasm I hate doing this shit. It just genuinely rubs me the wrong way.  I happily get an annual flu shot.
