Switching planning systems has been a long-time hobby of mine. From paper-based to digital, here is a short history of my foray into the world of planners and where I have ended up (at least for now). continue…

My Latest To-Do List Strategy

I used to really be annoyed when people would say it’s impossible to get it all done. Even highly accomplished self-help authors and organizing and productivity gurus.

Mainly because I believe strongly that anything is possible and find it annoying when people deem anything impossible, even the seemingly impossible feat of having a to-do list of exactly zero items.

It’s Okay If It’s Not All Done

I still don’t agree with the statement that it’s impossible. But I believe I have finally come to a place where I can be okay with the fact that it isn’t all done. continue…

I was nervous about having to make a dash for the hospital. Being packed made me feel more ready for the delivery. Here are my top 25 delivery items to pack: continue…

Toasted Coconut Mocha Frappuccino

The other day I wanted something sweet but not bad for me and couldn’t come up with anything in the house. Somehow the idea of a mocha frappuccino made with coconut milk came to mind. So I googled it and found this recipe by Minimalist Baker. 

I messed it up the first day but ended up with a delicious iced mocha latte by accident. The Minimalist Baker recipe calls for freezing the coconut milk, but I wanted the frappuccino now so I hadn’t taken the time to freeze the coconut milk and thought I could get by with skipping that step and just adding regular ice cubes. If you are impatient like me, you could try this, but it does not integrate and you will end up with a very cold iced mocha latte, once you separate out the chunks, which also tastes great!

As I was enjoying my accidental iced latte, I went ahead and froze the rest of the canned coconut milk in ice cube trays as described in the Minimalist Baker recipe. The next day, I was very excited to try making the frappuccino with my coconut milk ice cubes and it worked! continue…

What is Mommy and Baby Yoga?

Claire and I went to our first mommy and baby yoga class the other weekend. We loved it!

I had no idea if mom and baby yoga was a thing, but if it was, I wanted to try it. Claire is now about 2 and a half months old. A few weeks ago I searched on YouTube for a video we could try but didn’t find anything that interested me. I recently found out that there is a place in Scottsdale that offers mom and baby yoga and decided to give it a try. continue…
