Hi, friends! Happy Friday to you! So, we’ve had quite the fun April vacation week. We got back from New York City on Monday morning, which, of course, was a great way to kick off the week. On Wednesday, I filmed a donut review with Jack from The Donut Digest at my beloved Coffee Shack. The location closer to our home went out of business, but the original Coffee Shack is alive and well (in…

Hi, guys! On Saturday at CrossFit, we did a special hero workout for a local police officer, who recently died during a shooting in Weymouth. It was truly tragic and hit home hard for the Salt Shack community as well as those in the surrounding towns. Officer Chesna actually lived in Hanover (where we live) with his family. He was just 42 years old and married with two young children (9 and 4 years old)….

Hi, guys! I hope you had a lovely weekend! 🙂 Ours was really nice – lots of family time and plenty of FUN! We were busy, but not crazy-busy, which was the perfect balance. I hate it when we have TOO many plans, but I also don’t like wasting away the weekend doing nothing. I mean, you guys know me… I can’t sit still for too long, so some sort of adventure or activity is…

Hi, guys! How was your Monday? Mine was especially great because I got to spend it with Quinn! 🙂 One of new work-life goals is taking off at least a couple of days per month to spend some extra quality time with my sweet boy. I miss him so much during the week, and I make my own schedule, so I’ve started to plan “Quinn and Mumma” days into my calendar. With a flexible schedule comes…

Hi, guys! So, yesterday was a good day. When looking back on how the beginning of 2017 started for me, life has come a long way. Yesterday was a nice mix of work and life, and, well… I guess things just felt balanced for once, which, for the record, is not how my life typically feels. Not even exaggerating, I apologize to at least one person every week for being a “hot mess.” I’m usually running around like…

Hi, guys! Happy Friday once again! I just wanted to pop in with a little recap of our morning. Now that we’re not traveling a ton, I’m hoping to get back to a regular schedule with the day in the life posts! 🙂 Ok, so we’re up and at ’em this morning at 6:38 AM. I actually didn’t set an alarm because (in theory) Quinn’s OK to Wake! Clock is our alarm clock. He usually comes…

Happy Monday, friends! I hope you had a wonderful weekend! Ours was busy with plenty of food, fun, and fitness! Oh, yea, it also included some much-needed sleep too. It was a nice mix for sure! Friday On Friday afternoon, Mal and I hit up Orangetheory for a fitness “happy hour” of sorts, which is our new favorite way to kick-off the weekend. We keep saying we’re going to get cocktails after class to make it a real happy…

Hey, hey! I hope you guys had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend! We actually started with no real plans for the long weekend, but then ended up being pretty busy – lots of friends, family, and barbecues! Friday Our local Orangetheory added a 3:00 PM class to their Friday schedule for the summer, so Mal and I popped in for a fitness “happy hour” before picking Qman up from daycare. It was an awesome workout…

Good morning and happy Monday! I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. I just wanted to share a quick recap with some “timestamps” from ours. Here we go! SATURDAY 9:53 AM: Partner workout at Salt Shack CrossFit complete! It was a good one for sure. My partner and I split up the reps evenly. And, whoa, my shoulders are sore from the rope climbs. I haven’t done them in awhile! 10:20 AM: Donut date with my favorite…
