Now they have thought of everything!

Well hello blog, how have you been?! Its been a while.

So Bay is officially 7 months and practically to the day a friend came by. Ugh. I feel like garbage. Really I do.I have been petrified about my milk supply plummeting with the return of this dear friend so I sought some advice from a fabulous group of women on the Boston Nesties board.

Prescription? Cookies. Lactation cookies that is. No, not cookies made with breastmilk. Wow, if only I could have cookies for a headache. This weekend I will be making my first batch of Lactation Cookies! They contain oatmeal, brewers yeast and flax- all things to keep the milk flowing so to speak.  Very excited!  People swear by these things. I’ll be sure to take photos!

Its been a busy few weeks with ROBAY kicking off again. We are working on getting into a few stores locally. Plus, I have been sewing like a mad woman for some upcoming showers.

I took some time out for me today and made my first homemade banana bread. Came out awesome! SO yummy with a cup of tea. I was in heaven. Sorry no pictures.

Today, well yesterday as its 12, was 9/11. 8 years ago I was sitting in my dorm room and the world changed in a second. I have been thinking a lot about college recently and how the event rocked our lives. My prayers to those who lost their lives that day, the courage that came from it all and the families who still grieve. We have to work together to make this world  a peaceful place for generations to come.

A Nice Break

IMG_1002I was just reading a NYT story on KIND bars. You have most likely seen them if you are a pseudo health nut like myself.  They satisfy my nut and coconut cravings while marathon shopping with Bay. The story talks about the company’s big break with Starbucks and how it was many years in the making.

People ask, how is it being a SAHM, well, I am loving being a mom at home with her baby, BUT I am far from just a stay at home. I pitch daily. I pitch like my life depends on it, as well, it does. I pitch ROBAY STUDIO  constantly. I have been known to stay up til 3 pitching us to stores and there is always those feedings at the computer or while on the phone. In any case, this isn’t a post about me pitching ROBAY, I wanted to talk about that big break. I wonder how the universe decides, ok, you have been working hard enough, here is your big break.  While working for agencies my ‘ breaks’ always seem to come when I was literally on the verge of breaking. I would surrender to the universe and say, ‘ I give up, you win.’ Is that what it takes?

 I wonder…
