Liam is teething so I decided to make baby teething biscuits for him to try.

These biscuits are incredibly hard.  They’re perfect for teething, but I should not have added all that sugar.  Next time I will cut the sugar in half, but for the first try I wanted to follow the recipe adapted from Wholesomebabyfood and just added cinnamon for flavor.

Casual Outfit: Floral & Pink

April 2, 2015

Happy Wednesday!

I’m actually not wearing pajamas all day so I wanted to share my casual outfit. You see how I’m posing? Awkward much?  YES! It’s cause I don’t know how to pose for outfit pics, lol! It’s been years since I’ve blogged an outfit!  This blog is definitely NOT a fashion blog.  I know pajama fashion and that’s all, lol!  Personally when I shop for clothes I look for comfort, affordability and things I don’t mind staining  since Liam’s meal time can get messy, lol!

I call this my “mommy outfit” cause it’s loose fitting, comfy and casual — almost as comfy as pajamas!  I was going to wait to share outfit pics when I saw results from my 21 Day Fix Extreme workouts, but seriously ain’t nobody got time to wait, right?  I gotta just do it!  God made our bodies in all shapes and sizes and this is me, 11 month postpartum me who just finally started working out last month, lol! I can’t even begin to tell you all the excuses I had to NOT  exercise but at the end of the day I just needed to find inspiration and motivate myself.  Being healthy for my family and fitting into some pre-pregnancy clothes I refuse to giveaway to Goodwill/ThredUp/SalvationArmy is what motivated me!  My friend Kiara’s before and after pics also motivates me!

This dainty rose quartz necklace is special to me because it was a Christmas gift from Justin and Liam.

These baby pink  mid-rise cropped jean leggings by Mossimo are a comfortable and affordable find at Target.  I love the length too!  I’m 5’1″ and these hit right at the ankles.
