Good morning! Happy Tuesday! This post is a little random, but I think you guys will like it! Ready? Go!
Baby Matthew (my new nephew) is here! He arrived on Saturday afternoon while I was in Portland (both baby and mom are doing great), so as soon as my flight landed in Boston on Sunday night, I headed straight to the hospital to see him. He weighed 7 pounds on the dot, and he’s the cutest.
I’m actually on the way to my sister’s house later today to spend some time with her and Matthew as well as my mom and grandmother, who are also making the trip to visit the newest member of the family.
Carrots ‘N’ Cake is now on Facebook! I’ve finally ventures into the world of Facebook and set up a page for Carrots ‘N’ Cake. I know, I know, where the heck have I been? I dunno. I’m active on Twitter and Instagram, but just never got into Facebook until now. Please hop on over to CNC on Facebook and give me a ‘like’!
The Whole Foods in South Weymouth opens in 9 8 days! I am super pumped. There’s another Whole Foods about 10 minutes from my house, but the South Weymouth location is even closer. Mal and I are never moving.
Local readers: The South Weymouth location is offering sneak preview store tours next Monday. Details below!
I am hooked on Songza. It’s like Pandora, but better. Instead of just music genres, Songza recommends various playlists based on the time of day and mood or activity, such as waking up, working out, commuting, cooking, barbequing, celebrating, sleeping, and much more. I’m obsessed.

If you’re heading to the beach this July 4th weekend, here’s a quickie workout to take with you. Exercise on a holiday weekend? I’m sure you don’t want to spend a lot of time working out, but exercising on the beach is a lot of fun and challenges your body at the same time.
The sand provides an uneven and unstable surface, which makes working out more challenging because your body has to work harder to balance, which means you’ll burn more calories and give your body a seriously great work. Additionally, the sand provides some cushion for your joints, so running and jumping is lower impact, which puts you at less of a risk for injury.
