JoMarie’s First Valentines Day

I LOVE Valentine’s Day and I always have! Long before I had a Valentine of my own or before I got to celebrate Jo’s first Valentines Day with her, I have just always loved this Holiday. My Mother is 100% to blame 😉 She always went over and beyond on both Valentine’s Day and Easter with making my day so special each year! I remember feeling so loved and excited to wake up on these Holiday’s and search for my Easter basket or find a cute little something for me on the kitchen table the morning of V-day. This has 100% rubbed off on me as there is nothing I...

Baby Update:: 2 Months

Good Morning! I cannot believe we have a 2 month old already! I thought it was a good time to do a little blog update on how things are going 🙂 Life as a new mommy has been such an adventure and I really think I was put here to be JoMarie’s momma and love her with everything I have. When I was pregnant I would constantly think how things would be once our daughter was here with us. The reality is 20 times better than I ever imagined during those 9 months of carrying this sweet girl in my belly. Maternity leave is going great and I literally get sick...

Post-Baby Fitness

Good evening!! Late night post for you 🙂 I got little miss to sleep, Nick is in bed, and I brewed a cup of coffee for a late night of school work. Yep, school work. So here I sit, blogging and avoiding my school work 😉 I have recently started to workout again since giving birth and thought I would do a little post on that. Currently I am doing the Kayla Itsines 12 week BBG challenge (when I have time to do it) and I’m also getting back into my lifting program. It feels great, but I have learned some things along the way as well. Be nice to...

Weekly Goodness:: Take 51

Happy Friday everyone!! It has been a long time since I’ve done a Weekly Goodness post. Not for a lack of goodness, more of a lack of time 😉 JoMarie is deciding to nap today after a tough night of sleep, and I for some reason am WIDE awake, so I thought I would pop in to say hello to MyGoodness readers! I’m sure you can guess what my main goodness going on around here is 🙂 you guyssssss, she’s just too stinking cute and we can’t get enough of her. I have a full post coming up about being a first time mommy so far and how she’s doing...

JoMarie’s Birth Story

One month. It has been one month since we brought the most beautiful little human into this world and I still can’t believe it! This last month has been incredibly exciting, emotional, exhausting, and beyond anything we could have ever imagined. Life has an entire new meaning for us and this little girl has fulfilled us with overwhelming happiness. JoMarie is sitting in her rock n play next to me right now and I could just look at her for hours, and I have 🙂 I appreciate your patience and understanding with MyGoodness blog as I have most definitely been taking this time, to enjoy this special time that I will never get...

Welcome JoMarie!

Good Morning! On December 4th at 9:36pm our world took the best possible turn we could imagine as Nick and I welcomed our daughter, JoMarie Evelyn Elioff, into the world! I have thought about what to say in this post for the last few days and finally decided words just cannot describe the love and happiness this little sweet girl has put in our hearts! The last almost three weeks have been spent staring at JoMarie’s little face, learning new things about her each day, playing with her dark dark hair and rubbing her oh so kissable, chubby cheeks. My contractions started around 9:30 the morning of 12/4, which happened...

Third Trimester:: 39 Week Update

Good Morning!! I hope you all have had a great weekend with your loved ones and a wonderful Thanksgiving. We had a really nice weekend and a great Thanksgiving with family! We have a lot to be thankful for this year and with being SO excited for our little one to arrive, Nick and I did a little something fun for the two of us, we text each other each day this last week, something we were thankful for with each other. It was simple things like “I’m thankful you got up with the dogs last night” or “I’m thankful you take the garbage out every single week” or much...

Yeah BABY! **giveaway**

Hi lovelies!! I hope you are all enjoying your week and are ready for Thanksgiving tomorrow if that is a Holiday you celebrate. We are excited to spend tomorrow with family and be one day closer to welcoming our little bundle of joy into this world. She seems to be pretty comfy as of now so we are doing our best to enjoy this time before she joins us. I am excited for today’s post ladies!! I am teaming up with Rodale Books and Jillian Michaels team, who is offering a fun giveaway for one of My Goodness readers. Expecting mama’s, or have a loved one expecting, you will want to enter...

All Your Questions About Nesting Answered! Impact on Health, What To Avoid and Enjoying It

Good evening loves!!! I have a post for you tonight on NESTING!!! I just had to 😉 it’s what is consuming my world and I thought a blog post would be fun as I’m recently learning of so many new pregnant mamas. So exciting!! I have a 3rd trimester post coming up for you all, as we have been told we are good to bring this little girl into the world whenever she is ready!! I figured I should get a post put together soonish. Okay so for those of you interested, lets talk nesting! While almost every aspect of pregnancy has been pretty fascinating to me, it’s also pretty bizarre. Our bodies...

Showered With Love

Happy beautiful Friday everyone!!! How the heck are you?!? I feel like it’s been a bit since I have checked in with my wonderful blog family 🙂 These last couple of weeks have been very busy and so much fun spending some time preparing for the arrival of baby. Side note: do you all laugh when I talk about how busy I am all of the time when you know our daughter isn’t even here yet?!? I laugh at myself so feel free to laugh with me, I know!… I have no clue what busy is yet 😉 Anyways, back on track Jordyn!!  I just ended another graduate class and started...
