Hi, friends! I can’t believe December is just around the corner… although, I’m more than ready for it! 🙂 I feel like December marks the “official” holiday season – at least with regard to our family’s traditions via “24 Days of Togetherness.” If you haven’t had a chance to download your PDF yet, be sure to print it out and cut it up today, so you’re ready for all of the holiday fun that starts…

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…

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!…

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…

We got our Christmas tree over the weekend! Local readers: We get our tree from the guy (Bernie) who sets up next to Curtis Liquors in Weymouth. He’s the NICEST guy ever, and I highly recommend getting your tree there! Jacket: Columbia Turbodown // Boots: Columbia Minx Omni-Heat // Jeans: 7 for All Mankind // Scarf: Stitch Fix (Sorry, I don’t know the brand. I cut off the tag.)  Back at home, we put Quinn in his…

Good morning! Check out this year’s Christmas tree! Yay! I love the holidays! Decorating our Christmas tree was a lot of fun. We listened to holiday music, drank eggnog, and ate a million red and green M&Ms. Seriously. A million. And, of course, we reminisced about ornaments. Here are some of our favorites from the evening (clockwise from top left): Sparkly pineapple from the Dole plantation in Oahu, Hawaii. Tiny snowman from last year’s 24 Days of…

Hi, friends! Happy Tuesday! I hope your week is off to a fabulous start! Breakfast I woke up hungry yesterday morning, so I cooked myself a big ol’ breakfast””complete with an omelet, home fries, and cantaloupe. I’m actually quite impressed with this breakfast. Usually during the week, I just eat whatever is easiest/quickest to make, but I went all out yesterday. I actually needed to roast some potatoes for a couple of recipes later in…

On Friday night, Mal and I went to buy our Christmas tree. It wasn’t December 1st yet, so we broke another one of Mal’s holiday rules, but our evening was wide open, so we figured it was a good time to do it. Plus, we could make a whole evening of it””complete with holiday music, a fire, and wine. Hey, rules were made to be broken, right? It didn’t take us Mal long to find…

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas Ev’rywhere you go; Take a look in the five and ten glistening once again With candy canes and silver lanes aglow. It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas Toys in ev’ry store But the prettiest sight to see is the holly that will be On your own front door. Mal and I don’t have a single free weekend during the month of December, so we decided…

Christmas tree decorating was a success! It was a cold night for getting a tree, but that didn’t stop us. Mal and I picked a real beauty! 😀 Decorating our Christmas tree was such a great time! We had Rockin’ Holiday music and a warm, toasty fire. We didn’t have wine, but we had eggnog and holiday M&M’s. Sounds like a good night to me! I actually think this year’s tree decorating was my favorite so…
