Getting Back to Normal...or the New Normal

Now that we are officially in the New Year, I finally feel like I'm getting back to myself.  My new role in life has me ridiculously tired every. single. day, so I was beyond psyched when Jeff got me a new Nespresso machine for Christmas.  It's the first thing I go to in the morning (besides the baby, of course).

I'm currently obsessed with it because for the past 2 1/2 months I've been dairy free and for a limited time, soy free.  So that meant no iced lattes from Starbucks.  And the first six months of Amelia's life I lived off of grande iced lattes from Starbucks, so you can imagine how bummed I was when she developed an allergy to dairy.

Enter the Nespresso.  Now I make delicious almond milk lattes with steamed milk right from my kitchen - and I also use it to entice people to visit.

But this morning was even better because I'm starting to introduce dairy back and I got to have this ridiculously delicious donut with my morning coffee.  Sigh.  Happy mama, indeed!


  1. I'd love to hear how you discovered the diary allergy with the baby!
    I am interested!

  2. oh man, i'm with you! one of my girls (i have 4mo old twins) has a dairy allergy and i've been off of dairy and soy as well... so excited that you've been able to reintroduce!! that donut looks sooooo good!
