  • 5 Fall Trends I’m loving — I know, hard to believe pumpkin spice season is almost near. So in case you haven’t seen the new trends coming this Fall here’s a quick recap of my favs. -Red is in! Well monochromatic red that is. – Plaid (but you already knew that, right? Fall and plaid are like PB&) Loving the (yellow and red plaid prints){https://fashionista.com/2018/02/fashion-week-fall-2018-trend-clueless-plaid} – Bold print mix and match.

Especially all the new leopard and snow leopard prints. – Houndstooth I mean, do I need to say more? Obsessed. [2018 Fall Trends](
  • Kitchen renovation with kids — To say I’m overly excited about our kitchen renovation is an understatement. After seven yrs of saving, planning and talking about it, we’re now in the thick of it. Yup, I didn’t think it would be so hard. But not having a kitchen with little ones is pretty challenging. Check out TheMotherOverload IG stories to see all the behind the scenes!
  • Learning about and taking Polyphenol-rich superfruits! — You guys this stuff is where it’s at. Check out Dr Gundry’s site. I decided to take Vital Reds because I’m turning 40 next year and need all the energy. Going to try Primal Plants next for my skin.

  • 🎄Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn't before. What if Christmas, he thought, doesn't come from a store. 🎁 What if Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more. — Dr Seuss

  • “Outside of your comfort zone is where the magic happens.” — Anonymous 😉 When was the last time you did something for the first time? .
.
Today I’m working on a new project that’s way out of my comfort zone. Truth be told, I’m beyond scared and my anxiety level is way up there. But If I want something I’ve never had, then I’ve got to do something I’ve never done, right? Ahhh! Wish me luck 🤪🙈 #comfortzonechallenge #dreambigger #wednesdaymotivation
  • This right here is the reason why my heart explodes daily 🤩 and why I feel overwhelmed and so much mom guilt all lumped together. #realtalk 🤪

Love getting questions from you mamas. One of my favs is “what motivated me to start blogging?” The short answer. After having my first born and finding out about her severe egg allergy. I felt, lost, confused and stressed out. Not knowing anyone else in the same boat, I wanted to reach out to other moms going through what I was going through and to create a community. And boy has it evolved! I love sharing with you more of our life, what seems to work for us, the struggles, and all the brands we love. But in addition, I’m going to do a 180 and go back to my roots. Stay tuned for more allergy friendly quick recipes and this time, w/ the girls helping. 👩🏼‍🍳😄 .
