    Mal went back to school yesterday, and it was bittersweet for everyone involved. We were spoiled having him home all summer long, and I am especially appreciative that we were able to share parenting responsibilities. It was definitely a nice way to ease into life with a newborn! Now it’s just Q and me (and Murphy), 5 days a week, […]



    Hi, friends! How was your Labor Day weekend? We had a really nice one. In fact, it was probably the most fun I had all summer! On Saturday morning, Mal, Q, and I drove to New Hampshire for our friends’ wedding. They got married at a summer camp, so the majority of their guests stayed on-site […]

    Good morning! Thanks for all of your hair dryer recommendations. You guys rule! Here’s another peek into our new day in the life! 1:30 AM: Mal comes home from his softball game and hanging out with the guys. Murphy, our guard dog, hears him.

    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 […]

    Hey, hey! Just wanted to share some photos from yesterday as well as a cool fundraiser that I am participating in this weekend and some delicious smoothie and juice recipes from my new book. Ok, here goes! 3:00 AM… Murphy is not a fan of early morning feedings, especially when he’s not the one being fed. […]
