With the summer’s heat on full blast this week, the last thing I want to do is turn on my stove, but we all know breakfast is the most important meal of the day, so there’s no skipping it in our house, especially when eating a healthy one sets the tone for my entire day. That said, here are a bunch of nutritious, delicious, and, best of…

Hey, hey! It seems like you guys really enjoy my “slice of life” and “day in the life” posts, so I’m going to try to publish more of them on CNC. I like it when other bloggers share bits and pieces of their lives, so here’s a little look into my day yesterday! Quinn goes to daycare on Mondays, so it’s my “get sh*t done” day, which means I am running around like a chicken with…

Alternate title: How to Behave at a Bachelorette Party When You’re Running a Marathon the Next Day Over the weekend, I drove down to Newport, Rhode Island for a friend’s bachelorette party. Of course, I knew I would be running the Boston Marathon on Monday, but there was no way I could miss her big girls’ weekend away. I knew it would be a ton of fun, so I planned to enjoy myself…

Ok, this post title is a little misleading. I probably should have called it: “What I Ate Wednesday {I Eat A Lot When I Feed a Tiny Human Multiple Times a Day}.” Basically, it’s just a post about what I ate yesterday. It’s not based on what a breastfeeding mother should eat or anything like that. Personally, I just try to eat a variety of (mostly healthy) foods everyday. Ok, here we go! 3:30 AM…

This post is sponsored by Blue Diamond. Oh, happy hour. It’s no doubt one of my favorite times of day. But, if you rewind to my post-college days, too much merriment and overindulging at happy hour caused me to gain 20+ pounds. Enjoying cheesy nachos and way too much beer after work, more than a little too often, forced me to buy a whole new wardrobe. True story! Nowadays, happy hour is a lot more…

Good morning! You guys seemed to enjoy my last A New Day In The Life post, so I decided to do another one. Here is a recap of yesterday! Quick reminder: All times are approximate and, of course, this is just one of many days. 3:09 AM: Wake up. Pump a bottle. Eat granola. Chug water. Play Instagram. 3:25 AM: Go back to bed. 5:05 AM: Hear Q starting to fuss. Wake up. Feed him….

When it comes to entertaining your guests””whether it’s your in-laws stopping by unexpectedly or you’re hosting a birthday barbecue””it’s important that the experience is one that you enjoy too. You might think these kinds of get-togethers require all sorts of planning and organization, but they’re not meant to be a…

Mal and his “face twin” during tummy time. I have so much love for these two and, boy, do they make me happy. They are pretty darn cute too. Almond butter and banana. Best combo ever. It never gets old. CrossFit! Duh. I did this workout L2.5 (45 pounds for OHS) and finished in 17:25. My double unders suprisingly weren’t terrible! New iced coffee flavors. Marylou’s always has something new and exciting, which makes their iced coffee…

Even though I stopped taking photos of everything I eat, I still find myself snapping pics of my food. I guess it’s more ingrained in me than I thought. Apparently, 5+ years of documenting my eats will do that! Anyway, I thought I’d take you through some of the meals and snacks I’ve been eating lately. Fresh raspberries with almond butter and chocolate & white chocolate chips – a very dessert-y way to eat fruit!…
