The Perfect Ambiance at The Perfect Price!

So my office had a Friday luncheon out to celebrate my coworkers birthday.  It also served as farewell to me for maternity leave as that would be my last day in the office, because little did we know I would deliver that upcoming Sunday. Anytime someone in our office has a birthday, we ask where they want to go and schedule to go for a late lunch. Timing is important, because on a…

  • To my #MCM my husband, an amazing father who we celebrate not just yesterday but everyday! We might not say it enough but I hope you know how much we love and appreciate everything you do for our family. Thanks for being the best father to our kids. We hope you enjoyed your day and gifts! .

  • So my husband keeps telling me how much he enjoyed dinner! I never cook scallops (the texture just isn’t my fav) but made them, baked blackened salmon and made a pesto pasta with spinach and tomatoes. I’m also not afraid to try new meals (thanks to Pinterest). So someone asked me how often I cook like this... and well because I’m a wife and mom (3 big boys at that) I try to cook every day! Knowing that’s unrealistic I’d say I do at least 4 home cooked dinners a week (this does not include breakfast and lunch) so my hubs and kids never complain about food! .

  • Here’s another picture lol because TT @camille813 wanted one with her mouth closed lol #HappyOneMonth #CodiLynn
  • Time already seems to be flying I can’t believe #CodiLynn has already been here a month! I’ve been so hard on myself with such unrealistic expectations of hoping to already snap my body back (totally trippin and needing to remind myself it’s only been 4 weeks) trying to find time to write all these articles to catch up on  #courtneycoverscleveland salty I missed out on working eastern conference finals and the NBA Finals... the list just goes on! I’ve just been doing the most while being incredibly emotional and beating myself up for no reason. The reality is... I’ve been too tired to do anything but be a MOM this month and I had to come to terms with that... I can’t do everything or be everywhere  and while that’s hard to accept I’m totally FINALLY okay with that! I love being a mom, wouldn’t trade it for the world and right now that’s the only job I’m going to focus on!! Heck maternity leave will be over before I know it and I’ll be back to working anyway- so I’m going to enjoy this break while I can! #tootiredanyway #blogger #workingmom #postpartumjourney #1monthpostpartum #1month #momlife #mommyhood #maternityleave #babygirl
