The Wiggle Room Review

The Wiggle Room Review

January is not my favorite month. The soft winter glow of the holidays is gone and all that’s left is cold days and dark nights. Maryland is far enough north that we get cold, but not far enough that we actually get an abundance of snow. With the winter wonderland of early January long gone, […]

Winter Wonderland

Happy 2022! I hope everyone had a lovely holiday season. We were lucky enough to go home to Wisconsin this year and our little was able to meet so many of our family and friends. It was a wonderful trip. Sadly, we weren’t lucky enough to have a white Christmas while we were home. The […]

Baby Girl’s First Birthday

Last week Friday our girl turned one! I can’t believe we already celebrated our baby girl’s first birthday. It seems like just yesterday I was 100 months pregnant. This year seems to have flown by. Having a baby in the middle of a pandemic is a wild ride but I wouldn’t trade her for anything. […]

Fall is the best time of year in the DMV. Winter is wet and gross, spring is the attack of pollen, and summer gets so hot and humid it’s nearly unlivable. Just when you’re at your wits end the temperature finally drops and the humidity breaks and you’re suddenly reminded why you live here in […]

Mount Olivet Cemetery

For anyone who’s been around this blog for any amount of time, you know I’m not a big history person. That is absolutely Sean’s domain.

Fall Fun at Baugher's Orchards and Farm

I’ll go ahead and say it: fall is the best time of year. I love summer wholeheartedly but after three months of scorching weather in the Mid-Atlantic, it’s easy to yearn for cooler temps and relief from the overbearing humidity. Plus all the best things happen in the fall: the return of pumpkin spice lattes, […]

Five Days in Myrtle Beach

A few weeks ago we embarked on our first-ever road trip as a family of three down to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. It was also my first real vacation since coming back home to the U.S. in 2019 and after a full year of Vacation Deficit Disorder (it’s a thing), five days at the beach […]

A to Z Travel Archive

I’m usually not one for trends, but a few of my favorite travel Instagrammers have been participating in an A to Z travel challenge these past few weeks, and since I’m not going anywhere anytime soon, I thought it would be fun to revisit some of my favorite trips. Come along with me on a […]

A Return to Blogging, But How?

Well, hello everyone. It’s been a while! I love how every time I take a break from this blog I have ridiculous expectations about when I will be able to return. In my What Month Is It post I said perhaps I would be back around Christmas. HA. Anyway. Happy mid-January and happy 2021. We’re […]

Stop Commenting on Pregnant Bodies

This has been brewing in me for a while. I’ve chosen to keep my pregnancy mostly off this blog for many reasons. At this point, I’ve only made it the topic of my blog twice. But this issue I’ve been encountering recently finally pushed me over the edge and I have no choice but to […]
