Meet Kerri

Hi! Thank you for stopping by to visit! My name is Kerri and I started blogging in 2009 when my second daughter was born. Since then I have returned to teaching full time in the classroom but I still have a passion for blogging.
I love coffee, all things rustic, vintage, clean eating and simple living.

I'll take the Self-confidence with a side of Serenity

I have been MIA for a few weeks. A lifestyle change if you will. Or at least to my diet. I have always tried to eat healthy, before, during and after both of my pregnancies. Yet I still managed to gain weight during both pregnancies. ALOT of weight. Sooooo, I have spent a good part of the last 10 months trying to lose weight.

I can honestly say I am FULLY motivated to eating clean. I have a strong desire to be back to healthy weight. But something is not working for me. Hmph!

While I have been gone, I have been trying several new and yummy recipes. Although I can not take credit for them. Many of them have come from this great blog: Great, clean recipes and she is funny too!

I sometimes think I am the only thirty-something year old woman who struggles with her self-confidence. I mean seriously! I am a mommy and wife, not a teenage girl anymore, yet I still sturggle with it. I guess I thought self-confidence comes with age!

Clean Eating

Although I have been trying for some time now to lose the post-pregnancy weight(is is still called that if she is already 10 months old?), I have been on a Clean Eating kick lately.

And one of my new favorites is Stoneyfield Oikos Greek yogurt in Chocolate. It is heavenly.

Another big step for me has been to not have any frozen yogurt in the house. This is a hard one for me. I am not huge on sweets, but I do like frozen yogurt. Of course, I should not be having it at all because I am lactose intolerant, but SoDelicious makes a really good Dairy free frozen yogurt.

And why is everything that falls under Clean Eating or is categorized as healthy SO much more expensive? It is just another excuse to fall off the Healthy Eating Bandwagon for some!

Have a Great Weekend!

Time for a Picnic

All photos from

All of this unseasonably warm weather here in New England has me dreaming of a picnic. And my two year old has absolutely been loving eating her lunch outside on her picnic table! I actually have never owned a picnic basket, but have really been wanting one lately.
