Paleo Cookie Dough Popsicles: Two Ways
Wow, ok. Can we say mom brain altogether now?? I just hopped on to do some work on the website and realized I posted this recipe without any sort of awesome commentary to go along with it!? What is wrong with me?! I know you guys all come here for my witty comments, right?
Well, you're out of luck today because this mama is EXHAUSTED. For some reason, I hit a wall this week and my creative energy is at an all time LOW. Ok, that's dramatic, but I am zapped you guys. Working full time, blogging, podcasting, and keeping my two beautiful tiny humans alive is a serious balancing act sometimes!
I also want to comment on something that happened the other day. A reader commented to me privately that she doesn't understand how I "do it all". Meaning work, make food, stay alive, etc...and I just want to be 100% perfectly crystal clear. I absolutely don't do it all. I just don't. My husband helps A TON. Thank God for him, he's a saint..a saint I tell ya! I also have a VERY narrow list of priorities, and a set my expectations for the things outside of that list very very VERY low. So imagine the lowest expectation you can set, ok, now go lower. That's me.
It also took me a very long time to get to this place that I am at currently. Meaning me, thriving most days, rather than surviving. There were days the first 2-3 years after my son was born that I literally was a zombie. Sleep deprived, sluggish, mentally in a rut, physically in a rut, and not living my best life. It was a long, hard, uphill climb out of that hole, but here I am, and now I try my best to focus on the foods I eat and feed my family, the way I move my body, and the friends and family I surround myself with. Everything outside of that is just not a priority.
You also HAVE to follow my instastories to know the real me. I somehow manage to stay in pajamas all day during the weekend...sometimes I transition to yoga pants...sometimes. I rarely get my coffee before 10 am. Our house is a mess. Our dogs are cray. There's white hair everywhere. It's the best. Also, get on that podcast life! I share so much more of REAL life there, if you want to get to know who I am, that's the place to be.
Anyways, friends. Life isn't always what it appears to be, moral of the story. I hope you look at me and see a real, authentic person, and I encourage you to reach out! I love to get to know people, and I'd love to get to know YOU!
