Do you remember in the movie My Big Fat Greek Wedding how the Dad was obsessed with using Windex as a solution for everything? Well friends, coconut oil is my Windex 😉 . Every time my husband tells me about an ailment, my first response is typically me asking if he wants some coconut oil for it, hah! It’s safe to say I’ve developed an obsession with it in the last few years.

Tips for Dealing with Sleep Deprivation
Happy Monday, Friends! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend.
Feeling a little sleepy today? If so, I hear ya! Little Miss will be 7-months-old this week and still is not sleeping through the night whatsoever. She is currently cutting her second tooth, so it seems to be at least momentarily getting more difficult instead of easier in regards to me being sleep deprived. Lately she’s been waking up a minimum of 4 times per night, sometimes up to 10. I also try to wake up before her (usually around 5 or 5:30a) to get an hour or two of work done before she wakes up for the day.
Needless to say, I’m exhausted.
There’s a few tricks I have up my sleeve that I use on a daily basis to help me power through my day and still remain productive even though I haven’t had a good night’s sleep in a very, very long time.
Whether you haven’t been getting as much sleep as you really should be due to working, studying, a small child, insomnia, or a fun night out, I hope you’ll find these tips for dealing with sleep deprivation helpful! [Read more…]
Goal: Meal Prep
One of my goals to accomplish over the next few months is to start meal planning and prepping on Sundays.
I am juggling a lot during the week with taking care of my 6-month-old daughter and working from home simultaneously (I use zero forms of babysitters during the week), so anything I can do on the weekends to ease that burden a bit and make our home run smoother is something worth trying!
