Blessed to Have these Babies: Happy Mothers’ Day!

Happy Mothers’ Day to all the moms out there! I thought today would be a great day to jump on and start blogging again! After being away from Food Marriage for quite a while, I wanted to stop by and share a little of what life has brought us recently!

2016 was a life changing year for our family. Long story short: we found out we were expecting our second child, I made the transition from my full time corporate recruitment job to being part time, my husband took on a new job, we decided to put our 2 bedroom condo up for sale and sold it within a week, and then realized we had to find a new house FAST. We found a house, packed up the old one and moved, and then had our second baby exactly a month after moving into the new house. Whew! Just typing that out was exhausting! But it was one of the best years of our lives so far! Now we get to share our lives with not just one little girl but two!

Mommy and Me Matching Outfits - Navy and White Striped Dresses from Ralph Lauren. Happy Mothers' Day!

Matching Mommy and Me Dresses: All dresses purchased online from Ralph Lauren. They weren’t in a Mommy and Me collection, but I searched Women’s Dresses, Girls Dresses and Baby Dresses until I found coordinating outfits! I’m wearing a size Medium.  Our toddler is wearing a size 3T and the baby is wearing a size 3 Months.  All fit true to size!

Now that we are settling into our new normal, we can actually take some time to sit back, relax, and appreciate all that we have in our life. We have the most beautiful happy and healthy girls and that is all we could ever ask for or need. Being a mom to these two girls has been the most rewarding (and challenging) job that I have ever had in my life. I’ll be honest, I’m still learning how to juggle taking care of both of them at the same time! And there are times I lose my cool. But those little smiling faces and eyes that light up a room quickly melt my heart.

These little ones have made me a more patient person, a more selfless person, and a more loving person. I can’t wait to continue to see them grow and learn new things every day. I am truly blessed to have these babies!

Happy Mothers’ Day!

Happy Mother’s Day

Happy Mothers’ Day to all of the moms out there!!  To help celebrate the day with family, I made these fun candy-dipped Oreos!  They are fast, require no baking, and are so easy anyone can do it!  All I did was take a package of pink-colored, vanilla-flavored candy wafers, melted them down, and then dipped the Oreos halfway into the candy.  I also saved three cookies to write “MOM” on them to top off the display!!
