Hey friends! I know I’ve been MIA the last week – with my blog, Facebook, Twitter…basically all forms of social media!   Everything is great here – just super super busy.  Since late last week, I have spent ~12 hours / day at our new house – cleaning, unpacking, watering the newly laid sod (seriously […]

Founder’s Award and a DNS

Founder's Award

Lots of updates from the weekend!! I was notified by the alumni association from my elementary school alma mater, St Christopher’s, a couple of months ago with the news that I was selected to receive the 2012 St. Christopher Founders Award (along with other honorees). The dinner and ceremony were amazing – there were SO […]

Pregnancy #2 vs. Pregnancy #1

My priority these days

One of the questions I’m asked most frequently these days is if my second pregnancy is any different from the first.  They could NOT be any MORE different!  Although I feel and look different this time around, the major change is my overall outlook on my pregnancy. Breaking the news to my husband and family. […]

Happy Hump Bump Day! Well another two weeks have come and gone…I am now in my 22nd week of pregnancy.  I have my fetal anatomy ultrasound later today…despite being able to feel the baby kick and move pretty frequently these days, I always get nervous in the hours leading up to an appointment.  Did/does anyone else experience […]

Mother's Day 2012

Happy Mother’s Day to all the mommies and soon-t0-be-mommies out there! Hope you all had a wonderful day spent with family and lots of good food! I had planned on a long run early yesterday morning but after my son woke up (for the day) at 4:15am and my belly not feeling “right”, I decided […]

Why YOU should apply for the Foot Locker 5 Borough Challenge


Last summer, I applied for the Foot Locker 5 Borough Challenge (FL5BC).  I didn’t think I would be selected so figured there was no harm in applying – I did it on a whim without even telling my husband or family members…A few weeks later, I found out that I made it through the first round […]

How to Run a Marathon while 20 Weeks Pregnant

nyc marathon

Spoiler alert…this post is NOT about running 26.2 miles all at once when you are pregnant!  I’m a believer in the everything in moderation thinking during pregnancy, so I will likely never run a marathon when I am expecting. This past weekend, I ran the 26.2 miles over the course of 3 days.  Yes, I know I […]

Please Don’t Judge My Parenting


I had planned on publishing a different post today, but after last night’s experience, I felt the need to vent. My sister, my (almost) 16 month old son, and I went out for a very early dinner to our local diner.   It’s not as easy as it once was to take him out to […]
