    Cheeky Chic Studio was created to house all my projects.

    I’m a Marketing Director during the day and in my off hours I work on consulting businesses in brand creation/recreation, renovating two homes, training for races, and traveling.

The Pump Dump

So I’ve been back to work full-time now since May, and have left these little nuggets In the capable hands on my mother-in-law. So far I’m managing OK with not really sleeping the past 4 (almost 5) months. With Hunter, I remember sobbing because I was so tired and felt like the torture chamber of … Continue reading

Green Thumb

My sister and I have these grand illusions that we have a green thumb. Growing up, my mom instilled a healthy dose of manual labor chores that included pulling weeds from the many flower, hosta, and fern beds in our yard. Getting up early on Saturday and Sunday mornings, armed with a bucket, gloves, bug … Continue reading

Mama day all day

Well since I blew the budget on my push gift we did brunch at the yacht club (isn’t that so pretentious sounding) on the river and went for a boat ride instead of gifts. We were out on the water for about 5 minutes when we got pulled over by the coast guard. Naturally I … Continue reading


Greyson’s Birth Story: Natural, pain-free childbirth

***Beware: If you are about to experience labor for the first time or have any issue with blood, vomit, placenta, feelings, etc. this story is probably not for you. I’m leaving nothing out on my experience with natural birth, so you’ve been warned. Also, there are about 13 mentions of the word fuck in this story. … Continue reading

Christmas in April

Good god, I’m very far behind on posting. Seems like I’m using instagram more and more for ” light ” blogging. I need to clean up the gallery on my phone so I’m starting with Christmas, which runs parallel to transforming our living room. We had given ourselves a goal of having new paint, molding, … Continue reading

So I hip hop

Hope everyone had a good Easter yesterday. Ours started out with putting together puzzles the Easter bunny had left Hunter and also enjoying a healthy diet of McDonald’s breakfast after it was decided that James and I were too tired to cook anything. After getting dressed in actual clothes (a dress, no less) we headed … Continue reading


Ice Ice Baby

My sister came in town for 5 days to help take care of me and the household while James had some flights. She not only did chores, but made me tons of mason jar salads, homemade pizza and pasta, and best of all took Hunter on an adventure to the Science Center. But Hunter wasn’t … Continue reading


Mama and Baby Hospital Packing List

I’ve gotten a number of questions from my friends about what to pack for their overnight bags while in the hospital recovering from labor. Here is what I brought this 2nd time around. You will notice on this list I don’t mention food or entertainment. The hospital we went to had a free snack center … Continue reading

Belly Bandit

Let’s talk tummy time, and I don’t mean for Greyson. I’m talking jelly belly review. If you’ve ever given birth before you know that empty cavernous feeling in your belly once the baby is born. A massive amount of weight that was once being lugged around by your body is instantly gone after birth and … Continue reading

Getting Settled

So far so good, as we settle into day 6 with Greyson. Taking him to his first doctors appointment this afternoon and I’m optimistic on the weight gain as my milk came in pretty quickly. Yay for nursing Hunter until he was 18 months. I swear, the 2nd time around on caring for an infant … Continue reading

The Day.

I hate how I told myself months ago that tomorrow, my due date, is nothing more than a lucky guess for 40 weeks and don’t place any importance on it. But here I am, now at “40 weeks” and trying to not feel overly excited, grumpy, and anxious all at the same time. I had … Continue reading

The Children Were Screaming…and other bedtime adventures

To prepare for baby #2, we started working with Hunter on changing rooms and moving into a big boy bed. First step was removing the walls on the crib. Ah, the thought of him just roaming around scared the crap out of me. I wanted to keep him in his crib until he protested (or turned … Continue reading

Home Tour

It’s DOUBLE FRIDAY! Ohmygosh, remember when I used to post like everyday? Oh, how fancy that was of me. So back in September James and I allowed our home to be part of our local historical societies Home Tour. Some peeps on instagram and facebook wanted to see more photos of our house, so here … Continue reading


“You do realize I’m taking your photo, right?”

My MUCH older sister ( okay, she is only like a year older than me) wanted me to take her family photos, plus some headshots. She is really pretty and has wig-like quality hair, so this was a very easy session. Actually, I was a little nervous that her son, who is 5 and has a … Continue reading
