Barre3 Challenge {Giveaway!}

by jenna on December 18, 2014

December 26th

You guys know by now how much I love barre3 online workouts! I completely credit them to helping me stay in shape during pregnancy and bounce back after. I haven’t gotten to go to a real live yoga class in forever, so right now barre is the only exercise {other than lugging my heavy baby around} that I’m doing right now. And for those of you who don’t believe you can get a real workout at home….just try it!! I squeeze in 30 minute online workouts during naptime and feel better all day. I have definitely seen results postpartum from doing this form of exercise and I absolutely stand behind it in any way, shape or form.

Gingerbread — real gingerbread — is my absolute favorite holiday treat. I’ve loved it since I was a kid, and I chalk that up to the fact that it’s a rather old fashioned type of treat. Like something they would have eaten on the prairie. You know.

I haven’t done too much holiday baking this year, partly because Grayson has been keeping me so busy, but also because we are leaving in a few days to spend the holiday with my family on the East Coast and I don’t want to waste any treats. However, gingerbread has been an exception. I always bake gingerbread every year in December and enjoy every last crumb of it.

The Babywearing Post

November 13, 2014

I’ve been meaning to write this post forever so here goes! When it comes to “babywearing” (aka wearing your baby in a wrap, sling or carrier) there are SO MANY OPTIONS. And while I’m no babywearing expert, I have tried tons of different carriers in the past six months. I’ve bought, sold and traded carriers. […]
