meaghan and me

  Oh hi! Happy Monday 🙂 I have come to really like these Week in Review posts, thanks Meg for the link up! So I published five posts last week which feels huge for me right now because balancing event industry writing with my usual blog writing has been a bit harder to do these days. I […]

New Clothes, Salads & Baked By Melissa (week in review)

  What a difference a week makes! Although there are still some minor Bar Mitzvah details lingering around (like waiting for the pictures from the photographer and coordinating the service video from one videographer to be edited into the party video from the other videographer) I definitely felt more like more like myself over the last several […]

Mitzvah Mom, French Toast Bagels & Holiday Weekend

  In less than two weeks, the Bar Mitzvah will have come and gone which means that I can go back to being a normal person rather than a Mitzvah Mom and you won’t have to listen to me talk about the planning anymore. I promise. For now though, just be proud with me of each […]

The Week, The Workouts & Apple Crisp

  Linking up with Meg’s Week in Review! Last week saw the return to our back to school routine as well as my usual running schedule. After a cut back week, I felt fresh and ready to roll out there! I have been running a bit later in the morning though as my son decided to take the bus […]

Do I have to put a bra on? (week in review)

cranberry walnut salad plus avocado

  I was beyond thrilled to have my son home from camp last week but having him home also meant the following: My house is no longer tidy for more than three minutes at a time. Each time I tried to straighten up, my son blew on through like the windstorm that he is, making a mess of everything I […]

  Linking up with Meg to chat week in review style today! Blog Stuff: I am working really hard at sticking to my focused hours in the morning after taking my son to school. I don’t check my phone or my email during this time. I focus on my blog for one hour before switching over to dedicating […]

whole wheat blueberry banana pancakes

  Happy Monday! Let’s chat Week in Review style… Blog Stuff: I get so lost in my blog sometimes without even trying — drafting posts, working on the behind the scenes technical stuff, organizing things, responding to comments, loading photos — if I didn’t love this blog and the blogging community as much as I […]
