Driving Into 2015!

Happy New Year! I hope you all had a wonderful time celebrating the holidays with family and friends. We had quite the eventful past week and a half. Joey turned one. We traveled to see all of our family for Christmas, welcomed our new adorable nephew, celebrated my other adorable nephew’s 5th birthday, rang in the New Year, was asked to come on MSNBC live on New Year’s day to discuss resolutions, celebrated my cousin’s wedding, and are now finalizing our plans for Joey’s birthday party Whew! Just writing all that makes me feel tired. But not Joey, he’s still not a napper. He’s too busy driving his sweet new ride (pictured above) from his aunts and uncles! I think I was under the impression he may turn the corner at one year, but not so much. I am not giving up hope though!

Quick Breadless Quiche

If you need to get back on track after a holiday full of eating rich, and possibly less-than-healthy meals and snacks, start fresh today with this easy recipe.

Eggs are a delicious meal option for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. But sometimes, finding the time to prepare them can be a challenge. These easy breadless quiche is not only a whiz to prepare, but it’s great for reheating for a quick meal anytime during the week. You can also vary it by selecting any vegetable, meat, cheese, or seasoning you would like to toss in for a different taste each time you make it. Here’s a simple ham, egg, and cheese recipe that you can alter depending on your taste:

I hope you all have a wonderful time celebrating with family and friends! I will be back to my regular posting schedule next week. Enjoy your holidays!

Year One Reflections

I can’t believe Joey is turning the Big 0-1 this week! This year really flew by (well at times it felt like it was moving VERY slowly, but overall it went too fast!). As we get ready to celebrate his big day, I figured I would look back over the past year and reflect on how different life is now and how I wouldn’t want to change that for anything.

This time last year, we had just moved into our new house and we were finally finishing up with the construction. In fact, the first day of my maternity leave and the very first day of no contractors in the house, was of course the day I go into labor. I was so looking forward to a few days of quiet and rest, but no such luck J Leading up to Joey’s arrival, I remember being excited but so nervous at the same time. Mostly, I just was very stressed about the part about him actually coming out. I also just didn’t feel ready. We just moved, the nursery wasn’t set up, and I didn’t know where anything was.
