Fun Night, Quiet Morning

Last night was ridiculously fun. The five of us sat around all night, played card games, and laughed a lot.

There was also some drinking.

Doggie shenanigans.

And people shenanigans that took place.

Not surprisingly, the house was pretty quiet this morning, which meant it was the perfect time for me to get some blogging done and catch up on emails. I love the quiet hours of the morning. I’m always a zillion times more productive then.

Murphy heard me wake up, so he got out of bed and wanted breakfast. Once he was finished eating, I took him on a walk. It was so peaceful outside this morning.

When I returned, I made myself breakfast: cinnamon raisin toast with peanut butter and banana on top and an iced coffee with soy milk.

I’m not sure what’s on the agenda for today, but our friends Erin and Mike (and Ping) are coming to visit.


If you haven’t had a chance to buy my book yet, Barnes & Noble will be selling it at the Healthy Living Summit on Saturday from 10:00 AM – 12:00 PM. I will also be available to sign copies during the breaks and lunch and pretty much all weekend long-  just stop me if you see me! 

I’m getting so excited for HLS! A BIG thank you to our gold sponsor, Quaker, for their support! We Meghann couldn’t have done it without them!


  1. Looks like a wonderful morning – and finally no more rain!

    I love peaceful mornings – like today, my husband is still sleeping so I am enjoying my quiet breakfast.

    Enjoy the rest of your day

  2. Oh goodness, I feel like when I’m alone in the morning I’m a completely different person than later in the day. I can normally knock out about 3 important tasks on Saturday mornings before my beau even hits his first snooze button. Alas, he’s a night owl, so while I struggle to keep my eyes open after 10, he could write a novella.

  3. I love the quiet hours of the morning as well. They are the BEST time of day–to be alone and sort yourself out before you have to face the day. 🙂

  4. You know, I might be at the Ikea in Philly this weekend… I could just drag my husband over to the summit for an hour or two. Is it open access or did you have to register ahead of time? I will check the website too but I thought maybe you would know. Have a good relaxing day today!

  5. I love quite mornings like that too. I am so much more productive considering every time I take out the laptop to blog Adam thinks it is time to talk to me and I can never concentrate on either thing. Looks like a fun night! 🙂

  6. mornings= super productive
    evenings= spend 5 hours online shopping, browsing recipes.. basically never get anything useful done in the evening!

  7. I totally took advantage of the big online paperback sale at Barnes & Noble yesterday and ordered your book! I am anxiously awaiting its arrival. 🙂

  8. What a wonderful vacation. It looks like fun! One of my favorite things to do is sit around a table and play games with friends and family…food and drink make it that much better.

  9. I love calm, quiet mornings.

    I so wish I could make it to the Healthy Living Summit this year! Usually it’s tough for me to get weekends off, but I’m actually off this weekend! Too late now though. 🙁 Maybe next year!

  10. I’m totes a morning person too- always get so much more done in the hours! Whenever I’m able to complete my to-do’s before lunch, I feel so productive! In the afternoon and evening, all I want to do is kick back and relax…
