Hi, friends! Happy Friday to you! I can’t believe it’s already Friday. This week flew by – holy cow! Both Mal and Quinn were off this week, so we had adventures just about everyday – visiting friends and their new baby, cousin Matthew’s 6th birthday party, a Red Sox game, a block party at the Derby Street Shops, and the beach today. Let’s just say, I’m excited for a low-key weekend ahead. (There were quite…

Helloooooo! How was your Tuesday? It definitely felt like a Monday, right? I kept thinking that all day long. Anyway, we had a nice little Tuesday over here. Murphy still isn’t doing well, so the vet suggested not leaving him alone, unless he was in a crate, and I just couldn’t do that to the poor pug. I mean, he likes his crate just fine, but he’d much rather be with us, ya know? Quinn and…

Good morning, friends! I have all sorts of fun things to tell you””ten of them, actually”” basically, they are things that happened in the past few days. Ok, here we go! #1: Quinn said his first word. Words? We think. Maybe? Ok, Quinn says quite a few “words” on the regular, but the ones that actually make sense are “ba-ba” (bottle) and “uh oh” (when he drops something). He’s actually said “uh oh” for a few weeks…

(“Dinosaur Happy, Dinosaur Sad” is from one of Quinn’s favorite books right now!) Hellooooo! I can’t believe I’m on a plane right now to Mexico… for an amazing, all-inclusive Cancun vacation… with my girlfriends… but without my family… on Mother’s Day weekend. Ooooh, I am feeling so many emotions right now. Mother’s guilt for sure. Ok, let’s rewind to this morning because my day was pretty stellar… Chocolate frosted donut with breakfast? Yes, please. Quinn’s 11 month photo…

Goooooood morning and happy National Pizza Day! To help you celebrate the day, here are some of my very favorite pizza recipes: Sweet Potato Pizza Crust Toaster Oven Pizza for One Dandelion Pesto Pizza Buffalo Chicken Pizza Gluten-Free Grilled Pizza Almond Flax Pizza Crust Mal was home from school again yesterday, so we had another nice morning with our boys. Breakfast was egg sandwiches made with Light Creamy Swiss from The Laughing Cow, bacon, and…

Hey, hey! I hope you’re enjoying the final moments of your weekend! I just wanted to pop in and share some fun adventures from our Saturday in Maine. Mal, Quinn, Murphy, and I visited our friends Dave and Marie (you might remember them!) and the newest addition to their family: Carly, their 5-week old daughter. Saturday morning started with amazingly delicious breakfast sandwiches from “Dave’s Diner.” I seriously dream about these things. Our breakfast sandwiches were followed…

Hi, friends! We had a nice little Sunday yesterday. It started with a trip to the dog park where I ran with Q and the jogging stroller for about 15 minutes and, man, it was tough””so much harder than I thought it would be! I definitely need to work on it! Haha! Mal also took a turn with the jogging stroller and ran for about 20 minutes. When he started off with Q, Murphy ran after them,…

Good morning and happy National Donut Day! Are you celebrating today? I sure hope so. It’s quite the delicious day! When Mal woke up this morning, the first words out of his mouth were: “NATIONAL DONUT DAY!!!” And then, “Let’s get free donuts!” He was absolutely pumped and immediately jumped out of bed like a freak. In fact, he was so excited, he got Murphy all riled up, thinking he was coming along for the ride too. (We…

Good morning and happy, happy Friday! Breakfast My day started with Dunkin’ Donuts! Yay! Last night, when Mal and I were in bed about to fall asleep, we started talking about breakfast this morning. Mal likes to treat himself to Dunkin Donuts on Fridays (he loves their iced coffee and bagel sandwiches), so he asked me if I wanted him to get me something in the morning. Usually, I just say no thanks, but last…

Hello, hello! I got my 8-mile run in yesterday. Hooray! I actually nixed my 13-miler even before starting yesterday’s run because a friend of mine offered to accompany me on Saturday morning, which sounded like a lot better plan than running 13 miles alone. Running buddy + Saturday morning + fall = THE BEST There’s just something about fall running, isn’t there? Ok, back to yesterday’s run”¦ So, I headed out for 8 miles. I…

Hi, friends! I hope you had a wonderful Fourth of July! My 4th was a ton of fun, but also really relaxing at the same time because we didn’t have any set plans and just hung out and relaxed for two days straight. Mal, Murphy, and I spent the 4th (and 5th) at my in-law’s house (aka Funny Farm) and hung out with the whole family. It was a HOT couple of days, so we…

Happy Friday! Here’s some randomness to start your day! Today is National Donut Day! Yay! Celebrate with a free donut from Dunkin Donuts or Krispy Kreme! Obviously, I needed to join in the celebration. I balanced out my chocolate-frosted sprinkle donut with some nutritious green juice this morning. I’m participating in my first CrossFit competition later this month. I always wanted to participate in one, but an individual competition made me nervous, so I was…

Merry Christmas, friends! I hope Santa was good to you and you were able to spend some quality time with those you love today. I had a wonderful Christmas and it started with waking up to fresh snow””a white Christmas, which is pretty much the only time I like snow. Once Mal and I showered and got ready for the day, we headed out in search of iced coffee. Of course, the pug came along…

Hi, guys! Happy Hump Day! Is it H-O-T where you are today? It’s a scorcher here in Boston. We’re at 92 degrees! Yowsahs. Super hot weather always makes me want to boozeface… like on a boat out in the middle of the ocean. Anyone else? Ok, moving on… Breakfast I woke up craving nut butter (like I almost always do), so I added almond butter, sliced banana, and chia seeds to a whole wheat wrap…

Hello, hello! After breakfast, I planned to go for a run, but I just wasn’t feeling it. I felt lazy and unmotivated, so I threw on my new Reach the Beach tech shirt with the hope of it psyching me up. (New workout gear is typically instant exercise motivation for me.) Even though I was dressed in my workout gear, I still struggled to get started. It rained overnight, so the morning was dreary and…
