I’ve Been a Bad Blogger

I admit it, I haven’t been my usual blogging self lately. I’m normally good about posting three times a week and following my editorial content calendar, which I put a lot of time and thought into. But recently, I’ve been too exhausted to finish a sentence let alone type one. My exhaustion is due in part to work ramping up a bit, but it’s mostly because this mom machine is busy baking a new baby. Yep, baby number two will be here in a little over six months!

We are so excited to add another layer of crazy to our home, and Olivia is thrilled that she’s going to be a big sister. She’s already been practicing her lullabies on her baby dolls, though her baby burping skills still need a bit of work—it looks less like burping and more like beating the crap out of her baby dolls!

Anyway, please just bear with me for a little bit longer as I drag my feet into the second trimester and get back to my normal self (rather than my current self who is usually asleep on the couch by 8:30 p.m.). I’ve already started filling in my editorial calendar with fun new posts and recipes to share!

This weekend, I am planning on making some healthy coconut bars that we recently had at a birthday party for Olivia’s little friend. They were a huge hit with both the little ones and their parents, so be sure to stay tuned for that recipe. I’m also going to try recreating this delicious spicy black bean hummus I just had—fingers crossed that turns out share-worthy.

In the meantime, thanks so much for your patience and for reading. I can’t wait to share this next adventure with you guys!

About mommachine

I am a wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend and colleague. And trying to balance all of those roles at once can be utterly exhausting. Being the Type A control freak that I am, I try to run my life like a well-oiled machine. But sometimes the wheels get a bit squeaky (or just fly off completely, let's be honest). I have to slow down (yeah right, I know), give the different parts of my life a little tune-up and get back on the road.
