I guess it’s a perfect time as any to start blogging about this pregnancy. I had been waiting for that moment where it felt real but to be honest, that moment hasn’t happened yet. Nervous? Maybe. My husband and I wanted this for so long, almost too long and now that it’s here, I’m nervous as heck. As you may know, we’ve had our fair share of challenges. I’ve even blogged about them here. A month before I found out I was pregnant, I wrote that blog post about our challenges with fertility, I said “If we have another child, that would be a dream come true but if I can be honest, I’m past the dreaming stage, my hopes are dwindling and I am facing a harsh reality here that it could very well not be a possibility for us. I have come to accept what I have, what I cannot change and just try my best to be healthy, get healthier and do what I can. If it happens, it happens. If it doesn’t… I guess it just doesn’t. That’s about as easy as it can be at this point. It’s a process that I’ve learned does not come easy.” That was posted September 6th, 2014. On October 25th, 2014, I found out I was pregnant.
Valentine’s Day has passed, but that doesn’t mean you should stop thinking about matters of the heart. Did you know that the entire month of February is dedicated to heart health? Heart disease is a leading cause of death among women in the US and this is all about remembering to take care of yours.
School mornings and breakfast are always crazy at my house and besides cereal or bananas we are always trying to find a new fast option. I also have a kid that loves treats after dinner and some days the last thing he needs is sugar, he has plenty of energy. I had heard about moms taking the Rice Krispy treat idea and turning it into a cereal bar so I figured I would try it out. And the best part is if you have a kid with a peanut allergy you can use almond butter, or I make it that way so that it can go to school in a lunchbox no problem.
During the cold winter months, there’s nothing more comforting than a warm, filling casserole. This one is a family favorite!

I am always trying to come up with arts and crafts projects that will be exciting for my son who would rather play sports, or trains or with any automobile. This one seemed like a fun way to craft and use exciting tools. I also love that it can be saved as a keepsake for later in a scrapbook.
This article isn’t really vegetarian friendly and hey, we get it… my husband has been vegetarian for 13+ years… so I just thought I’d throw that little disclaimer out there.

With working, chauffeuring, play dates, school and fun, there is never enough time to fit everything in. I do love to cook and test out new recipes, however some nights I need quick, easy and not take out. I was drawn to this recipe as it is quick, easy, and with a few minor adjustments I made it a little healthier and it’s all in one and no fuss. It is a full meal in one pan, only a few ingredients, that you cover toss in the oven and voila! I tested it out and my family liked it, so bonus. I figured that I would share it with all of you! Enjoy!!
