    Good morning and happy Friday to you!

    I’m back on an oatmeal kick now that Fall is here. Anyone else? I used to eat oatmeal ALLTHETIME, but once I did the whole Paleo thing, I stopped eating it on the regular. It really is the best breakfast. It’s so darn filling and you can switch it up every morning, so it’s never the same thing twice. In the mix (below): Rolled oats, banana, pumpkin seeds, sliced almonds, and a big ol’ scoop of high-protein white chocolate chip peanut butter. I was in the mood for hot coffee (I know, who am I?), so I whipped up a Pumpkin Spice Latte to go with my bowl of oats.

    On Wednesday morning, I hit up the gym for a 5-mile treadmill run followed by 1,000 meters on the Ski Erg, which is my new favorite piece of cardio equipment. It’s so tough!

    Quinn and I also played basketball for quite awhile at the gym. He loved chasing after and throwing the balls. He seriously had such a blast.

    Maybe basketball is in his future? He is pretty tall for his age (33 inches at his 15-month appointment)!

    Post-workout, I mixed Starbucks VIA Instant Pumpkin Spice Latte (heated then chilled) with vanilla protein powder and a little soy milk. OMG, it’s tasty.

    We’re still working on the food throwing in our house, but we’ve (sort of) taught Quinn to put what he doesn’t want on the table next to him. Well, I was doing something in the kitchen and not watching him while he ate, and when I turned around, I saw a perfect little pile of broccoli on the table. Haha! I guess broccoli wasn’t happening for lunch!

    The weather was absolutely gorgeous, so Quinn and I took a trip to explore Jacob’s Pond in Norwell.

    It was our first time there and it was so beautiful.

    Rolling Down Thames Street

    October 3, 2015

    Greetings from Newport, Rhode Island! A little someone woke up bright and early this morning (I assume he was too excited to sleep!), so we were up and at ’em before the sunrise. Mal and I both wanted (needed?) coffee, so we got ourselves ready for the day. (Quinn thought the hairdryer was hilarious.) The […]
