Balancing Act

Well, hello there! I can’t believe it’s been a week since I last posted! I really didn’t mean to fall out of the blog world…

Things have been pretty crazy in my world. We moved over the weekend which was quite a process. Our apartment is pretty small compared to the 3-bedroom townhome we live in in Colorado! It was really overwhelming; i didn’t know where to start when it came to unpacking.

Monday I started my new job. I was excited about it, but also really sad that I wouldn’t be home all day with my daughter anymore. It’s such a shame that most of us mommies have not choice but to spend more time away from our kids than we get to spend with them! 😦

The job is going really well, but I am struggling with how to fit everything into my life – work, motherhood, daily household chores, exercise, blogging… It’s definitely a balancing act. Hopefully I will get it all figured out. It’s just going to take some time.

My posting is going to be pretty sporadic for the time being. And, unfortunately, I just don’t have as much time right now to read all your lovely blogs. 😦 Can’t exactly do that at work during my first week! 🙂

I will try to keep up with all of you when I can! I’m definitely planning my first trip to Trader Joe’s this weekend, so I’ll have to make time for a special post about that!

In other food-related news…

I finally had my first bowl of pumpkin oats. Umm…where has this been all my life?! Soooooooo good! Warm, comforting, and filling. Awww yeah!

  • 1/4 cup of oatmeal
  • 1/4 cup of oat bran

This was the perfect fall breakfast. I highly recommend it!


I probably won’t be back on here ’til Saturday. Enjoy the rest of your week! 😀
