Having my own children someday has both been exciting and terrifying to think about. Exciting for the obvious reasons, but terrifying because I knew that one day, I’d have to inevitably expose them to my whole family….a family that I’ve never felt quite apart of.
Holy hell. I thought my skin was super dry during the winter. However, my 27 winters in Chicago were nothing compared to the cold weather in Denver.
Before anyone comments or says how unwise I was for going, yes, I’m aware of the “Zika” risk for traveling to Mexico or any tropical warm climate place while prego.
Thanks to my genes, I’ve always had super thin hair, however, one thing I’ve realized over the years is that my hair growth has significantly slowed down. Not something a girl in her late twenties wants to hear.
I’m sure you’ve all heard by my instagram that we’re PREGO with our rainbow baby! It seems like everyone’s is posting the same type of news right now huh? Clearly all of us were all bored during the summer months while we were soaking up the a/c LOL. Truth be told, the hubs and I were not trying whatsoever (and please don’t tell me that annoying line of ..it happens when you’re not trying). I was so sick of trying for a baby after the miscarriage, frustrated with work, AND about to move across the country. A baby in that time frame was close to the last thing on my mind, right next to getting my wax. Little did I know that the altitude sickness we thought I had upon moving here turned out to be morning sickness.
This isn’t the second year that the hubs and I “escaped” our normal family gathering. Although we would have LOVED to go back to Plymouth, MA like last year, we moved to Denver and flights aren’t exactly cheap. In an effort to remain healthy, I had been fiddling with ideas on how to make an AIP stuffing with items I had on hand and after many attempts, stumbled upon a legit recipe.
If y’all haven’t figured out by now, the hubs, pups, and I drove across the country (kind of) to our new digs in Denver. Although we’ve only been in Denver for five months, moving out of my hometown has taught me five important life lessons….
