• Fun & Adventures


    Good morning, friends! Mal and I had quite the special day yesterday. The nice folks from the Chatham Bars Inn (CBI) invited me for a complementary spa treatment and lunch at one of their on-site restaurants, so we turned the opportunity into a day date. As new parents, it’s not always easy to get away and spend time alone […]



    I felt the magic of swiss herbs in Ricola® Herb & Throat drops as part of a sponsored post for Socialstars. #swissherbs Last week, Mal and I took Quinn (and Murphy) on his first hike of the season. It’s finally starting to warm up here, so we took advantage of the beautiful weather and took […]

Alternate title: How to Behave at a Bachelorette Party When You’re Running a Marathon the Next Day Over the weekend, I drove down to Newport, Rhode Island for a friend’s bachelorette party.

    Quinn had his first joyride yesterday! (I realize “joyride” typically refers to stealing or recklessly driving a car, but I assure you, Quinn drove responsibly and purely for enjoyment.) Rewind to Christmastime  My mom wanted to update her living room, so she talked about getting new slipcovers for her couch and loveseat. My sister and I considered buying them for her […]



    Let the travel adventures continue! Ok, so on Tuesday morning, I left Seattle to fly to Minneapolis for a blogger trip, which was hosted by General Mills. (Mal flew home solo with Quinn because, well, he is Super Dad. Somehow they scored an extra seat on the airplane, so Quinn snoozed the entire flight and […]

    Happy Friday, friends! I had such a fun day with my friend Kerrie yesterday. We were invited by the nice folks from Chestnut Hill Square for a fitness- and food-focused day, and it was amazing. My gosh, we had a great time. Check out our agenda: SoulCycle class, followed by lunch at sweetgreen, shopping at Athleta, and […]
