Obsession: Chobani Greek Yogurt

I think I have been watching too much Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen because I have been saying “I am obsessed with…” so much lately that my husband now asks me Andy-style, “what three things are you obsessed with this week?” Any other Real Housewives and Andy fans out there with me??

So my latest obsession is Chobani Non-fat Greek Yogurt. Let me explain why.

Having gestational diabetes with my second pregnancy was the best thing that could have happened to me. At the time it wasn’t, but in retrospect it absolutely was. Even today, three years later, I still eat a modified diabetes diet, which entails eating 5 times a day: three small meals and two small snacks. I also never let myself go more than 3 hours without eating something to keep my blood sugar stable. Eating this way has been great for my metabolism and gives me energy (which is important when you are a mom!)

This Mother’s Day…

…will be better than last years for me.

I was crabby last year on Mother’s Day.  Thinking about it now makes me laugh.  I was about 34 weeks pregnant, hormonal, uncomfortable and knee-deep in managing my gestational diabetes.  I was bitter.  I felt like that Mother’s Day of ALL Mother’s Day I should have been handed the world on a silver platter.  My poor husband could do no right. He grilled fish for dinner without asking me, and I was not in the mood for fish.  The nerve!  Oh my gosh, I was a nightmare.

What a difference a year makes.   This Mother’s Day already feels like the BEST one ever, and it is not even Mother’s Day yet!  I have a healthy, happy 10 month old and a spunky, growing up so fast, almost 4 year old. Life is GOOD.

Here are my two little monkeys that make me a MOTHER.  A very, very happy mother.   Sometimes I think “I am so happy God gave me these two!”  I feel so lucky to be their mom.  I often look at those two little faces and wonder how I got so lucky.  Must be living right or something.

This Mother’s Day, all I want to do is be with my family.   Maybe a little outing to Laguna and a margarita and chips & guac on a patio somewhere would be fun too, but mostly I just want to be together.

I wish all of you hard working moms a VERY happy Mother’s Day!   Our job is hard no doubt.  It’s relentless, 24/7 work. But it’s the best job in the world.

Thank you for reading my blog, I appreciate all my mommy readers more than words can express. So what are YOU doing this weekend?
