Life Updates

by Meghann on February 24, 2016

Hi Friends. Sorry to have disappeared there. Life got a little crazy for a minute and I had to shift my priorities.


The plague that took over our household has finally dissipated, minus a lingering stuffy nose that Annalynn can’t seem to shake. Derek and I are both still in recovery mode, lately we’ve been falling asleep on the couch right after we put Annalynn to bed each night at 8:00 p.m.  Last night I fell asleep with my laptop on my lap, thankfully it only fell to the pillows of the couch, instead of directly to the floor.

I recently started a new job (still in the same company, just a different department), which has been a fun new adventure to embark on. I’ve had the same role for 3 years now and, while I’ve really enjoyed my former role, I’m looking forward to a fresh start in a new position. So far I’m really loving it. I’m learning a ton and re-discovering new passion for a company I’ve always loved.


I do have some big news on the family front. Annalynn will be welcoming TWO boy cousins into the family this summer.

That’s right, both my sister-in-law and sister recently discovered they’re expecting boys. We’re pumped. Two more adorable nephews to spoil and snuggle with. I’m one proud aunt over here.

Right now life is moving about a million miles a minute. The weekdays are tough and super busy, but they make the weekends worth it ten times over. Annalynn is growing like a weed and I can’t believe she’ll be 5 months on Tuesday (holy crap?!). Her little personality grows and shines everyday.

I’m doing good. I get in walks when I can, and try not to take a single moment with my family for granted. I’m going to try hard to get some more blog posts up in the next couple of weeks, including some exciting updates with Brooks Running! I was trying to move away from so many baby-related posts, but then discovered I don’t have much else to write about since that’s pretty much all my life is at the moment. 🙂

Thank you for your patience!

The sickness that never ends

February 15, 2016

A belated Happy Valentine’s Day from my little valentine. She may be smiling in that photo, but trust me, it’s been a rough week. Remember that daycare cold I posted about a couple of weeks ago? Ha! That has NOTHING on the sickness my little girl was hit with last Monday. It was bad. Really more »

Body After Baby: 4 Months

February 11, 2016

I had a doctor’s appointment this morning and stepped on the scale for the first time since my 6 week post-op appointment. Couldn’t believe it when I saw the scale dip back into the 130s for the first time in over a year. I am officially three pounds away from my pre-pregnancy weight. I ballooned more »

Today is the 10th anniversary of my 21st birthday. I can’t believe it’s been 10 years since I wore a silly crown and used my real ID to legally purchase alcohol for the first time. Time really does fly when you’re having fun. Instead of impatiently waiting to enter a bar the minute the clock more »

Office Snacking with Orchard Valley Harvest

February 3, 2016

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Orchard Valley Harvest . The opinions and text are all mine. The evolution of my hunger: I thought I was hungry while I was IRONMAN training, but that level of hunger has nothing on how hungry I am while breastfeeding. I read somewhere that more »

Annalynn: 4 Months

Happy 4 months, Annalynn! You are over 14 pounds now and 25.25 inches long. You’re still in size 2 diapers (though we switched you to size 3 for overnight) and fit comfortably in all of your 6 month clothing. Milestones You stole the hearts of all the teachers when you started daycare last month. Mommy cried more »
