Favorite Find: Fabletics

5 Reasons I'm Wearing Yoga Pants Today And Not Doing Yoga: 5. Grocery shopping with a toddler is an olympic sport - I'm just dressing the part. 4. Wrangling and buckling 3 wiggling  bodies into their carseats requires flexibility. I need my pants to move with me. 3. I'll be the first to admit it. My kids don't listen to me. When I tell them not to run down the street, I need to be ready to run after them. 2. I considered wearing jeans, but then I remembered wearing them would have required me to do laundry yesterday and that just didn't happen. 1. I think my new yoga pants are awesome so do I really need any more reason than that? (wearing Forward Tee in white and Lima Capri in camo/black) Actually, I am obsessed with an entire line: Fabletics. And all of my friends who use Fabletics have a mutual feeling about this brand. Example: The other day I showed up to kiddie soccer in my new camo capris to see one of my friends wearing the exact same pair. We looked at … [Read More...]

First Trip to the ER

first trip to ER

I pass a brand new urgent care facility almost every single day. Every single day I think to myself, "Wow that's convenient. I hope I never have to go there." And with three boys, people are shocked when I say I haven't been to the ER yet. With all the crazy crap they do, like jumping out of trees, diving through each other head first like invincible lunatics, falling off tables they shouldn't have climbed on in the first place; we've been lucky so far. But I can stop knocking on wood now, because as of last Friday, this all changed. What promised to be a lovely evening filled with wine, pizza … [Read More...]

Fall Fashions on SALE

I've been doing a lot of closet staring recently. You know, when you open your closet and you leaf through each hanging item and then you stare........ stare........stare.... and nothing. You don't know what to wear. You aren't necessarily going anywhere. Yoga pants would be so easy, but you don't want to go there. The air is coolen-ing (word?) and you should have so many options with all of the items that have been untouched all summer, but this transitional time of year makes it so hard figure out what to wear. I've been consigning/donating a ton of clothes recently and am ready to make room … [Read More...]

5 Reasons I Run {Radnor Run}

Radnor Run

5 Reasons I Run: 5. Because no one can bother me for 30 minutes straight. When I am running I can't change diapers, I can't do dishes or fold laundry, or make dinner or even put little lego people heads on little lego people bodies that somehow popped off. The only thing I can do is to put headphones on and tune out the world. 4. It's free.  Well, once you subtract the cost of my double jogging stroller. 3. Because at some point in the day I am going to have to feed my kids dinner and I'm going to need a clear head in order to do that. If  you haven't read my post on what it's like to … [Read More...]

Zucchini Lasagna Recipe

zucchini lasagna

You know when you can just tell that someone is a good cook? Even if you've never even tasted their cooking you can just tell by the things that roll of their tongue? Like, "Oh, I was going to do a glazed salmon in the oven for dinner tonight, but instead I think we might just have leftovers from last night's zucchini lasagna." Hmm, and suddenly your breaded chicken tenders with dipping sauce (cough*ketchup*cough) don't seem so gourmet anymore. I have a friend like this. Everytime I see her I ask her, "What's for dinner tonight?" for two reasons: 1) for the drool factor and 2) for some … [Read More...]

How to Share Photos Privately with Seahorse

seahorse app

I read somewhere recently that we are living in the age of the image. Images are everywhere and as a mother of three, I am guilty as charged. My iPhone photo gallery has thousands of images of my kids..... And while I may not find the time to write milestones in their baby books, thanks to images, I'd say their childhood is pretty well documented. But guess what? I don't want the world to see all of these images. Shocking, right? Sometimes I just want to share my child's yogurt covered face with the people who, by default, are forced to think it is equally adorable...like say their … [Read More...]

The Hell that is Feeding My Kids Dinner

feeding kids dinner

When I thought about what motherhood looked like before I was a mom, let's call it the "pre-mom vision" for short, I envisioned myself snuggling armfuls of children on the back of a tractor filled with hay, cheerily volunteering at their schools and receiving compliments from the teacher about how kind, smart and hardworking my children were. I envisioned myself jumping up and down and cheering at their sporting events with a smile ear to ear and tearing up with pride as they put their foot on the bus for the first time. And those things really do happen, but I never, ever, ever, ever, … [Read More...]

How Do You Make Money Blogging?

how to make money blogging

I get asked this question a lot, so I am just going to lay it out there for ya. The convo goes something like this: "Oh, hey Lindsey! How are you?" "Great! You know....busy, busy!" "I love your blog by the way!" "Oh thanks! Appreciate that. Thanks for reading!" (awkward pause) "So like, do you just do it for fun or do you make money blogging?" I get asked this question at least once per week and as my readers, I thought you should know the answer to this question. The short answer: YES! Can my husband quit his job and rely on me to support our family with my … [Read More...]

Salute Your Socks with Sandals

free people birkenstocks and socks

Would you ever consider wearing socks with sandals this fall? I’ll give you a minute to decompress. I know right now you’re all, “What!! Fashion is so stupid, why would I ever wear socks with sandals? That’s so asinine. Socks with sandals have been the trademark of dorky dads for years!” Or maybe you weren’t quite that dramatic and your reaction was more along the lines of, “This girl is crazy, I’m done reading.” To which I say, “NO! Don’t punish Lindsey just because I want to push my heinous fashion views on you, it’s not her fault!” Take a deep breath, relax your forehead … [Read More...]

10 Things You Can’t Do with a Toddler

My toddler is into everything. No really. Everything. Did you see that video I posted on YouTube? I mean, I can't babyproof my house enough for this kid. There is nothing that he can't find, get to, and destroy. So just incase it slips my mind, I've written a list of 10 things I can't do with a toddler, my toddler, specifically, but I think its safe to assume this applies to most toddlers as well and therefore I'm sharing it with you. 10 Things You Can't Do with a Toddler: 10. Serve hors d'oeuvres.  I mean, technically you can serve hors d'oeuvres.....if you are into eating mutilated … [Read More...]

Smile Brilliant Custom Teeth Whitening Trays {Giveaway!!}

smile brilliant teeth whitening

There comes a time as a mom where you look in the mirror and come to understand why you are no longer referred to as "miss" by perfect strangers. No.... Those days are gone and now you are known as "ma'am". Really? Does it have to roll off your tongue so easily? No hesitation? "Thank you, Ma'am." "Excuse me, Ma'am." "Have a nice day, Ma'am". Wait a minute, does all this ma'am-ing means I don't look like a 23 year old anymore? Are you suuure you don't want to to ask for my ID? To be honest, I'm okay with all of this. If anyone would like to take my three children for one … [Read More...]
