A whole lot of random

Hey there strangers

Where oh where have I been?  Hiding I suppose.  There is too much to recap on some I’m going to give you a lot of random:

  • Stopping breastfeeding is no joke.  It’s difficult physically and emotionally.  I made it through immediate postpartum without getting depressed, but this surely got me there
  • I’ve been in a funk as a result
  • Having a less-than-special Mother’s Day didn’t help matters
  • Things are looking up however
  • We leave for NYC/Boston in a couple days –> meaning I see my bestie and her little tater tot in less than week Open-mouthed smile
  • Zone Perfect sent me their Perfectly Simple  bars to try.  Pretty nice of them, I’d say.  I tried the Peanut Crunch and it reminds me a lot of the YouBar I created.  Very tasty and something I would definitely buy again (I’m pretty sure I’ve seen them at Target).
  • My hair is falling out in the fistfuls.  This depresses me too.  I’ve always had serious hair envy so now I’m even greener with jealousy for those that have luscious locks.
  • I bought a pair of colored jeans – pale yellow.  I’m still on the hunt for mint ones, but everywhere I’ve looked is sold out of my size. 
  • My personal training is going well.  It’s amazing how much more she pushes me than I would do on my own.  I’m grateful for that.
  • I made a really tasty cranberry banana bread last week. I should have taken pics.  It’s pretty damn blog worthy.
  • My dad now owns 3 buffalo.  Tell me that isn’t a random piece of info Winking smile
  • Today I attended a lovely baby shower and wore a new hi-lo dress.  Perhaps I’ll show you tomorrow?
  • Our new furniture arrived.  Cons: pretty sure I need to buy a new area rug to match now; the cats have already scratched it leaping off with their back paws (grr).  Pros: looks great in the living room, good size, super firm, and Bean looks adorable in the chair

The time has come

Hey there friends,

The time has come – I’m back to work today.  I’m excited, but also my heart is aching over missing my little bean.  I never imagined it would be this hard.  Perhaps after a few days, it will become a bit easier. 

It was a pretty darn good weekend though.

Friday I spent the day with some other mommy friends and kept that evening low key.

Saturday, Zach and I finally bit the bullet and purchased a new couch (and chair).  As I’ve mentioned, we loathe our current couch and have been searching high and low for something we liked.  We found this:


We should have both pieces by mid-May.  Woohoo Open-mouthed smile

Following the furniture shopping, we hit up a new wine bar that was nearby.  The outside ambience was very strip-mall, but the interior was nice.  And, I ended up having a fabulous uber cheap Carmenere that I now want to buy by the case. 

We followed our wine adventure with some Yogurtland (cookies and cream with pralines and pecan and dulce de delicious and tons of toppings):


Being that Saturday was rainy and cold we opted to stay in for the rest of the night and watched The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

Wow.  Just wow.  I had read all the books and thought they were phenomenal.  The movie actually did the first book justice and left me looking forward to the next two in the series.  The movie is intense, so beware. 

Sunday was typical errands day: Peets, groceries, getting work clothes ready, working out, and preparing bean’s stuff for the babysitter.

Alright, here I go…wish me luck Winking smile
