Good morning, friends! How was your Hump Day! We had a great one over here…

It started with FlapJacked Protein Pancakes topped with sliced banana and maple syrup.

And then I did a tough workout (from CrossFit Back Bay) at KFIT. My shoulders were en fuego!

Then, Quinn and I drank smoothies together. His was mango + banana + vanilla yogurt.

Mine was banana + vanilla yogurt + iced coffee + vanilla protein powder. Please note our little Houdini running by me after he successfully removed the child safety lock from the cabinet under the sink. He’s quick! I think his proud little smile says it all. (Clearly, we need to up our child-proofing game.)

Shortly after that, my sister and nephew arrived at our house. It was a gorgeous day outside (not 8,000 degrees with 150% humidity), so we took the boys for a walk to the nearby playground.

Ready to roll… or something like that. Neither of them look very impressed. Haha!

We actually had an awesome time at the playground. Matthew saw a huge tanker truck, and Quinn loved swinging on the swings. He was laughing SO HARD. It was adorable.

Side note: I know Quinn looks a lot like Mal, but the photo below is basically Mal’s face on a toddler. #facetwins

After our walk, we hopped in the car to grab lunch at Whole Foods.

We ate lunch outside (minus Quinn – he napped) and played with “Crazy Uncle Mal” for awhile before my sister and nephew headed home.

When Quinn woke up from his nap, we took a walk to the post office to mail my Clean Out bag from ThredUp. (I didn’t end up doing a capsule wardrobe, but I got rid of A LOT of clothing, and, wow, it felt good!)

When we got home, I was really hungry, so I make a quick a snack, which was quite delicious for a just-add-water product. Mmm!

A few hours later, I headed out (solo this time) to grab dinner at Whole Foods for Mal and me. I got him a sandwich, and I went with the hot bar again + a chocolate chip cookie. I also may or may not have purchased us a bottle of wine. Boom.

The end.
