Another weekend without a baby appearance...

Well…that whole 35 percent chance of having the baby by Monday night isn’t looking so promising anymore! The kid is still cooking – and KICKING – in my belly. Which I really don’t think could possiblyget any bigger than it is right now!

But since the babe didn’t make his big appearance this weekend, I definitely got to check out the season finale of the Real Housewives of New Jersey – did you? It was pretty fantabulous – although slightly sad to see everyone’s…

39 weeks pregnant and time to issue this child an eviction notice!

So now that I’m 39 weeks pregnant with a babe that’s actually facing the right direction for once, it’s time to try to get this show on the road. Mama’s tired of being pregnant and swollen. So, my dear child, it is time for you to be served with an eviction notice from my belly.

Contractions in the middle of the night are always fun

Last night – well really early this morning – I woke up with some serious contractions. We’re talking to the point of tears here. And for a girl with a super high pain tolerance – well, this was surprising. Ricky heard me crying – yes, I can admit it – and woke up.

“What’s wrong? What’s going on?” he asked.

“I’m having contractions (sob) and they REALLY HURT!”...Continue reading at …

Work from home guide: how to set up a functional office

So you guys know that I office from my house – and being able to do this is one of the biggest reasons why I absolutely love my job. Sure, I do go into client’s offices from time to time, but being able to work from home more often than not has been huge for both my own productivity and for what we need as a family. I get a lot of questions about how to be successful working from home, so I created a new series all about just that. Last week I wrote about…

How I Became Mrs. Galster: Chapter Sixteen

The only problem? An unforeseen snowstorm that hit the entire state that night.

Here’s the thing about having a husband that runs a commercial snow crew: if it snows, he’s on. It doesn’t matter if we’re several hundred miles away on a weekend getaway. Snow = hubby’s on the phone. A lot. So while this little mama may have been ready to hit the hay, Ricky’s phone had different ideas for our night. Basically that it was going to go off every twenty minutes until six am...Continue reading…

Happy Rosh Hashanah!

No matter what your background is, t's a wonderful time of year to rejoice in new beginnings, wipe the slate clean and begin your story on a brand new page. Give an old friend a call today, start a new book, or make a bucket list for fall that lets you focus on finding joy in the small things. Spend some time reflecting on the past, the present, and the future...and then go make today a great one.

38 weeks pregnant means a weekend full of nesting

I literally nested all weekend. Which means that my house looks and smells amazing, but I still don’t have a baby yet! Well, unless you count Lucy as a big baby. Let’s just say that she’s been a little needy. To the point that she thinks she’s a full-on lap dog. Ever had a dog her size try to curl up in your lap? Ok, ok – she doesn’t try to curl up in my lap since I really don’t have one right now. She does, however, try to curl up in Ricky’s lap and it’s completely hilarious.…

38 Weeks Pregnant and not feeling very productive

Fact: I am 38 weeks pregnant.

Fiction: Being 38 weeks pregnant is soooooo comfortable!

I can literally feel all of the weight this baby has gained in the last two weeks. My stomach no longer looks like *just* a basketball, it looks like a basketball that has another deflated basketball on top of it. AKA: It’s time for the baby to be done cooking...Continue reading at …

How I Became Mrs. Galster: Chapter Fifteen

…I made a split second decision to go with our happiness and see what happened. And I haven’t looked back since.

As the days rolled by, it was suddenly December. The holidays were upon us – and I was so excited to shop for a Christmas gift for Ricky that I couldn’t stand it.

We were busy, but things really weren’t that eventful: For our first Christmas together, I found the classic velvet stockings to hang by the fireplace at Pottery Barn – they were gorgeous. One for him, one…

New series featuring tips on becoming a WAHM. Today's topic: monetizing your blog

I’ve been blogging for a long time – six years, to be exact. While the types of blogs I’ve run has been varied – from fashion and sports to my now mommy-centric lifestyle – one thing has remained the same: I blog about my own life and my own experiences. The things I love and the things that drive me crazy. This combination – along with being able to create quality content – is how I got into blogging. I love to write stories, I have since I was a kid. So blogging became my outlet for not…
