I’ve partnered with Enlightened to bring you this blog post and share how incredible their ice cream tastes. Seriously, I am so impressed. If you like Halo Top, Enlightened will knock your socks off. The texture and mix-ins are a zillion times better! Read on to see how it fits into my day, macro-wise, and why it’s truly THE BEST “healthy” ice cream on the market.  We’re all up and at ’em well before 6:00…

Hi, friends! I hope you had a very merry Christmas! Ours was absolutely awesome. Now, I know why parents love Christmas so much!

Good morning! It’s time for another edition of Monday In Meals where I recap what I ate throughout the day on Monday with a few random adventures thrown into the mix. Ok, here we go! Yesterday morning started bright and early at 5:01 AM, which, of course, meant: COFFEE. I added eggnog and collagen to mine.  I worked until about 6:30 AM when Qman woke up. We cuddled on the couch, played, and then I…

Hi, guys! Happy Sunday evening! I hope you had a wonderful weekend!! So, I just realized I haven’t written a High Low High post since September. Holy cow, where did the past couple of months go?! Yowsahs. If you’re unfamiliar with this blog post series, I recap my weekend by sharing both the high and low points from it.

Good morning! First things first: In nearly 8 years of blogging, I’ve used this same post title 4 times now. Four times! That’s kind of a lot, so, apparently, we’re playing catch-up quite a lot over here. Haha! I thought it might be fun to take a little trip down memory lane and share the 3 posts where I previously used this title: Playing Catch-Up (February 2009) – This was a year after I started blogging. I…

Hi, friends! It’s time for another Day In The Life post! So, I guess it looks like I’m bringing this blog feature back once a month now since I just wrote one last month when Quinn turned 17 months old. Although, today’s post is a day late. Everything you see is actually from Monday, not yesterday, but you’ll still get the idea! And… 18 months. How did my baby boy get so big?! 6:45 AM: I hear Quinn on the baby monitor….

Hellooooo and happy, happy, happy Monday to you! We had quite a busy weekend over here, so let’s get right to it with a weekend recap! FRIDAY Day 11: Take a family photo! SATURDAY Mal recently joined a new CrossFit, so Quinn and I went with him to check it out on Saturday morning. The WOD was a partner workout, so Mal and I teamed up, which meant we needed to share a bar and…

Hi, friends! Happy Monday! How was your weekend? Did you enjoy some holiday cheer? We sure did with three more days of 24 Days of Togetherness, a holiday party, and Sunday brunch with friends. Ooooh, how I love this time of year! That said, here’s a recap of our weekend! Friday, Day 4 of 24 Days of Togetherness, was “buy each other $5 gifts.” Quinn and I ran some errands in the afternoon, so I bought…

Hey, hey! Happy Friday! First things first, if you missed my post about Legacybox yesterday, definitely check it out, especially if you’re stumped with what to buy someone on your shopping list this year. It’s an awesome gift for people who seem like they already have everything! Ok, I feel like I’m all over the place today, so here are some “fast facts,” which include a bunch of random thoughts, tidbits, and happenings from life lately. Enjoy!…

Yesterday, we visited The Enchanted Village at Jordan’s Furniture! My mom, sister, and nephew came to visit and then we all headed down to Avon to see what The Enchanted Village was all about. We had heard great things and it definitely put us in the holiday spirit, but, holy cow, it was busy for a Wednesday. I can’t even imagine what it would be like on a weekend. Check out the ropes for the weekend…

Hi, friends! We kicked off this year’s 24 Days of Togetherness with one of our favorite holiday activities: Get a Christmas tree! (Ok, this one was planned; not randomly picked, but only because we didn’t want to wait to get our tree!) I picked up Quinn from daycare and then we met Mal at the place where we’ve purchased our Christmas tree for the past few years now. (FYI for the local readers: We go to…
