    Hi, friends! I’m looking for some hair dryer recommendations, and I’m hoping you guys might be able to help me out! A few years ago, Mal bought me a fancy ionic hairdryer, but instead of it making my hair sleek and smooth, it makes my hair frizzy. I know. It’s suppose to do just the opposite, […]


    The Old Irish Goodbye

    August 25, 2014


    Hi, friends! Happy, happy, happy Monday to you! I hope you had a wonderful weekend. Here’s a quick little recap of mine…             Left to right starting at the top: Kettlebells 4 Kids. The WOD was a lot of fun (and surprisingly challenging for just 8 minutes) and we got sweaty for a […]

    Q and I had a nice, sweaty workout this morning! I packed up all of our gear (my diaper bag now doubles as a workout bag) and drove to Southfield to do some running and walking together. When I was training for a half marathon last fall, I did a lot of my long runs […]

    Hi, blog friends! Happy Friday! Yesterday started with a 45-minute spinning class with my best fitness buddy followed by chit-chat and iced coffee, which is one of my favorite ways to start the day. When Mal goes back to school in September, I am definitely going to miss these mornings. On my drive home from getting iced coffee, […]

    I woke up at 3:25 AM this morning. Q was fussing and hungry. He is most definitely going through another growth spurt like he did around 6 weeks. Yesterday, all he wanted to do was eat and, like clockwork, he’d get fussy, eat, and play every 2 hours. I spent a lot of time sitting […]
