Back to School GIVEAWAY + Updates at The Mall at Prince Georges = Awesome!

It's almost back to school time! These mornings, my youngest enjoys vigorously crossing the days off the wall calendar as we inch towards the first day of the new school year. For her, it's an exercise in destruction. For me, it's a countdown to how many days before I can drink my coffee while it's still hot. It's the little things, people. 😃

Speaking of not so little things, it appears that my young man has gone through a couple of growth spurts this summer. I did, too; in solidarity.... ;) So when the Mall at Prince Georges (MPG) invited me to check out their latest renovations and hear about upcoming events while conquering our back to school shopping, I thought: perfect timing!

Strong Mama: A Prenatal & Postnatal Exercise Class For Mamas!

After I had my first child, I had high aspirations of getting back into the exercise game lickety split. Or maybe it was visualizations. Either way, the mind was willing but the body was not. Things had changed and I didn't feel strong enough to jump back on the exercise saddle. Which made sense because, well, the last thing any new mom wants to do is suffer the inevitable consequence of a jump....

Ways to Save at Whole Foods Market

I'm really digging the new Whole Foods Market in Riverdale Park.  Sure, I love all of the incredibly colorful produce and am childishly entertained by fruits that look like they're from outer space (looking at you, Jackfruit), but I also appreciate the increased accessibility to foods that are free from artificial preservatives, colors, sweeteners, flavors, etc.
