Hi, guys! Just wanted to pop in and share some highlights from my trip to Austin last week as well as some healthy travel tips you might not have tried yet. I think most of us are familiar with the common ones, like pack nutritious snacks or wear your sneakers, but I rounded up a few that I recently started doing that maybe you haven’t heard. If you think they sound like ideas that would…

Hi, guys! I hope you had a nice weekend! Mine was a lot of fun and included an overnight “staycation” with some girlfriends in Boston. We’re all moms and don’t getaway for the night all too often, so we took full advantage of our mini vaca! 🙂 I partnered with HotelTonight to reserve our hotel rooms for the night. Never heard of HotelTonight? Well, you are in for a treat. It’s a really cool app….

We recently had the opportunity to stay at Basin Harbor Club in Vergennes, Vermont for a couple of nights. The nice folks from the resort reached out about a two-night complimentary stay in exchange for a review on CNC, and we couldn’t be happier to accept! Read on to see what kinds of adventures we enjoyed there!  After a quick pit-stop in Burlington for lunch (it’s about an hour away), we arrived at Basin Harbor Club (BHC) on beautiful Lake…

This post is brought to you by CJ Affiliate’s VIP Content Service. Thank you IHG for sponsoring this post. While this was a sponsored opportunity from IHG, all content and opinions expressed here are my own. Last weekend, my sister and I traveled to Norwalk, Connecticut to stay overnight at EVEN Hotels. I was recently invited to review the hotel, and I immediately jumped at the chance because of the brand’s commitment to wellness-minded travelers. I love travel…

Missed Part 1 and Part 2 of our family vacation to Chatham Bars Inn (CBI)? After nap time and our individual spa services, the three of us ate some lunch in our room and then drove to nearby Chatham Lighthouse Beach to fly Quinn’s first kite together! So fun! He loved it. Doing anything with a kid for the first time is truly the best. I absolutely loved seeing the pure joy and amazement on Q-Man’s face as he looked up…

Our second day in Chatham was a busy one for sure. It started bright and early (before 6 AM) and continued straight through until bedtime, which was 7:00 PM for Quinn and 9:30 PM for Mal and me. We were all exhausted from a seriously fun-filled day on the Cape! Not surprisingly, waking up with the sunrise meant Mal and I needed coffee in a bad way. Unfortunately, we couldn’t get our in-room Nespresso machine…

Ok, here we go! We haven’t gone on too many family vacations with just the three of us, so I took a TON of photos to document our experience. Plus, the nice people at Chatham Bars Inn (CBI) offer us a complimentary 2-night stay, so I wanted to make sure I gave you guys a full review of the property. With that, here’s part 1 of 3 (!!) of our family vacation to CBI! Spoiler: We had…

Hi, friends! When we visited Vermont earlier this month, we stayed at the The Comfort Inn & Suites(R) hotel in South Burlington. We had a wonderful time exploring the city, but what we loved most about our trip was spending time with our friends who live nearby. We typically stay in touch via social media and text messages, so it was really nice connecting with them in person. Our little family arrived in Burlington on Friday evening. We were warmly welcomed by…

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 together, so we were really looking forward to our visit. The first part of our day date included a trip…

Last week, I had the opportunity to visit the new Mirbeau Inn & Spa at The Pinehills in Plymouth, Massachusetts. (The Inn has another location in Skaneateles, New York.) The Inn opened at the beginning of July, so it’s brand new and absolutely gorgeous! When I arrived, I immediately scoped out the grounds to see what the place was all about. According to the website, Mirbeau Inn & Spa at The Pinehills was designed to “evoke the warmth,…

This post is sponsored by Hyatt Place as part of its Seamless Travel Series. The opinions are my own and based on my experience. Now that the travel season is in full swing, I thought it would be a great time to talk about what to eat on the road to start your day. In my last post as the Hyatt Place Seamless Travel Series’ Healthy Living Guru, we talked about workouts you can do…

As part of my new role as the Healthy Living Guru on Hyatt Place’s Seamless Travel Series, I recently asked you guys for your questions, input, and interest about anything and everything related to health, fitness or food when you’re traveling. You guys provided a lot of great feedback. A question that came up a lot was getting the most out of your hotel gym workout when you’re on the road. We all know that…

This post was sponsored by Hyatt Place as part of its Seamless Travel Series. The opinions are my own and based on my experience.  Rise and shine! Being on the road doesn’t mean taking a break from my healthy habits. Sure, I’ll splurge a little bit here and there – I mean, that’s the fun part about traveling, right? I recently teamed up with Hyatt Place, serving as an expert with the Seamless Travel Series, to…

Our babymoon in Savannah was absolutely wonderful. Truthfully, it was probably one of the laziest and most laid-back vacations Mal and I have ever taken together, but it was exactly what we wanted. Since I wasn’t in blogging/work mode, I didn’t document every little thing we did, but I still wanted to share my experience with you guys, so this post highlights some of my favorite experiences from our trip. I hope you enjoy reading…

Mal and I spent the weekend in God’s country (also known as Vermont). We were invited by Hotel Vermont for their very first Farmers’ Dinner at Juniper Bar and Restaurant, so we drove up to Burlington on Saturday morning. (Both our stay at the hotel and dinner were complimentary.) We arrived at the hotel around noon, bumped into a couple of pugs in the lobby (it’s a pet-friendly hotel), and checked in. Hotel Vermont is…
