Running happy 

I had back-to-back running days this weekend and loved it. I didn’t get a chance to do my once a week run last weekend so I was glad I was able to get these in.  Saturday I did the same 5K loop I had done the past 2 times and shaved 2 minutes off my… Read More

Back at the (CrossFit) Box

Sunday marked my official first day back at CrossFit. Although I had been doing home WODs for several weeks already, this was my first time back at the gym, seeing some of my fellow Crossfitters, hearing about some of their recent accomplishments and goals. Many of them are currently doing the Open, with Week 3… Read More

Running Comeback and Booty Challenge

It’s been getting quite difficult finding the time to post, but I wanted to do a quick update on my current status…starting the post on Monday night while Frankie is sleeping and I’m enjoying a margarita because it’s #nationalmargaritaday so this mama had a few minutes to spare. By the way, seems like everyday is… Read More

Back on the Barbell

I had my postnatal OB appointment on Friday and got the “official” green light to resume my workouts…so what did I the next day? Went down to my basement to do a barbell WOD, of course! Although I had been carefully doing a few light workouts here and there, including the “no crunches challenge”I had… Read More

First Date Night

Frank and I went on our first date night post-Frankie last night. I very much needed to get out of the house, brush my hair, put on some lipstick and something else besides leggings.

Frankie’s birth story

My life officially changed on December 29th, 2015 when my beautiful baby boy, Frank Hickman IV was born.  I woke up on the 28th around 3am and started feeling contractions, but was not sure if they were the real deal. I paid attention to their frequency and timing for the next 45 minutes and then… Read More

Christmas Love

In my family, Christmas Eve is a bigger deal than the next day. We cook delicious food, make “clericó”, a Paraguayan sangria-like punch, and plenty of desserts and gather at my one aunt’s house. This year I made pizzelles to add a little bit of Italian flair to the table. We eat dinner around 10,… Read More

Baby’s Room

I can finally say that Baby Hicky’s room is ready and the only thing missing is Mr Hicky himself. I’ve never experienced this type of anticipation before… I now introduce you to my little prince’s nursery.    The little toy train we got from Pottery Barn Kids and the elephant collection belonged to his Daddy. Most… Read More
