Around Town | The Grape Life

Cravings!

Cravings!

What is it about being pregnant and wanting junk food?  I’ll be honest, I’ve never been a super healthy eater, however, I never really have been a big fan of cookies, cake, candy or other sugary foods.  That is until I was pregnant with Kylee.  I CRAVED chocolate when carrying her!  I had a secret […]

Eat or Toss?

Eat or Toss?

My husband and I are constantly questioning if our food has spoiled – steak we forgot was in the fridge, opened bacon, and leftovers from 4 days ago. I grew up eating food that I’m sure was on the brink of being too old.  My mom would tear off the moldy crust so I could eat […]

1st Pregnancy vs. 2nd Pregnancy

1st Pregnancy vs. 2nd Pregnancy

This pregnancy has been SOOOO different than my first. I’ll start off by saying, Kylee was a dream pregnancy. The worst part was over after 12 weeks when I got some energy back. Weeks 6-12 I could barely keep my eyes open or walk around the block! I would occasionally get sick if I didn’t […]

My "New" Body

My “New” Body

Before kids I considered myself in decent shape.  I was a dance teacher for years, frequented the gym and ran my fair share of 5Ks.  I’ve never “loved” my body, but I was content.  My first pregnancy I gained a lot of weight.  It was after she was born I realized I had a lot of work to do.  At […]
