Good morning and happy July 1st to you! June was the quickest month ever, right? Right?! It was a total whirlwind for me. Well, hello, July. I have a feeling you’re going to be even more insane than June, but I’m ready. Let’s do it! Yesterday started bright and early with a quick snack as I headed out the door to meet my friend Marisa for a track workout. We recently chatted about how much we both…

I started my day with an iced latte and muffin from Caffe Ladro, which is one of my favorite coffee places ever. I couldn’t leave Seattle without getting it at least once! My flight home is delayed 3 hours. Whomp whomp. So”¦ I went shopping at the airport to kill some time. I bought a dog finger puppet book for Quinn as well as a construction plate + utensils for my nephew’s birthday. I also bought Mal…

Hi, friends! I have a GREAT giveaway for you! But, first, let’s do a little recap of today! Our morning was pretty typical: Wake up, feed Quinn, feed Murphy, feed ourselves, get ready for the day, except that Quinn has been waking up pretty early this week. He was rocking the 6:00/6:15 AM wake-up for awhile, but, suddenly, he’s waking up about an hour earlier. Gooooooood morning, Quinn! Needless to say, I’m dragging a bit…

First things first… LUNA is making their entire portfolio gluten-free, so they are hosting a 2,000-bar giveaway of their Peanut Caramel Cluster bar to give everyone the chance to try it for free! Here’s the link to get your free bar: http://www.lunabar.com/tryLUNAgf! And now for some random thoughts and happenings from yesterday”¦ I really love our mantel this year. It’s so festive! I bought a couple of sparkly Christmas trees at Marshalls yesterday, and they totally complete the look….

Hi, friends! How’s your Monday going so far? Quinn is a napping machine today (who is this kid? I think Mimi has magical powers), so I had some extra time to create a pin-able workout, order our holiday cards, start dinner, and write this blog post. Hooray for naps! So, this workout”¦ I am still sore from it, and I did it LAST Wednesday at CrossFit. Holy cow. It totally smoked my arms. The second set of push-ups, which…

Hi, friends! Here is another edition of A New Day In The Life, a little snapshot into our days. I really enjoy writing these posts, and I love looking back to see what life was like with Quinn even just a couple of months ago. It’s crazy how quickly things change with a baby. Ok, here we ago! 1:30 AM – I hear Quinn on the baby monitor and he’s ready to eat! I feed him. 2:00…

Hey, hey! Happy Monday, friends! I hope you had a lovely weekend. Mine was really great with lots of quality family and friend time. That, said here’s a quick recap of the best of my weekend! Clockwise from top left: Murphy is such a pushy pug. Quinn was sitting on my lap and Murphy pushed his big old pug butt onto it. He basically sat on poor Quinn. What a butthead. I discovered the secret to incredible…

It’s Tuesday night. It’s late. I had one of those days where I ran around like a chicken with its head cut off, but I didn’t accomplish all that much. I managed to snap some photos throughout the day, but now as I sit down to write this post, I have no idea what to say, so I’m just going to type and see what comes out. I assume it will be some sort of random mix…

Life with a newborn”¦ Accomplishing things that I used to do without a second thought are now some of the biggest achievements of my day””and yesterday was one of those days. I was on fire getting things done, and it felt awesome. Haha! That said, here are some of my little victories from yesterday! I had bacon on my breakfast sandwich. Haha! I usually save bacon for the weekends because it’s an extra step in the breakfast…

Hi, friends! Happy Monday! I hope you had a lovely weekend. Mine was nice””nothing too exciting to report, but an all-around wonderful weekend. That said, here are 8 great things that happened! Quinn and I went to stroller bootcamp, and it was so much fun. We did some running intervals, hill sprints, push-ups, plyo squats, and some core work. It was a fabulous, full-body workout and a great way to start the day! Mal, Q, and I went…

Good morning! Thanks for all of your hair dryer recommendations. You guys rule! Here’s another peek into our new day in the life! 1:30 AM: Mal comes home from his softball game and hanging out with the guys. Murphy, our guard dog, hears him. He doesn’t bark, but he jumps off the bed and annoyingly whines and scratches at the bedroom door, so I wake up. Mal and I hangout and chat for a bit….

Hello, hello! Just popping in to share some of my eats from today and my new post on Health.com! Breakfast I had an egg-cellent breakfast this morning: Egg, bacon, cheese, and kale in a pita pocket with a glass of homemade Marylou’s Hawaiian Chocolate Nut with vanilla almond milk ice cubes. It was so good. You will definitely see a repeat of this breakfast in the future! After breakfast, I hung out with Q and waited for Mal…

Hello, hello! Happy Friday, friends! Let’s get right to it with a recap of my eats and happenings from the day! (I’m publishing this post a little earlier than usual because I have a hot date with Mal, Q, and Murphy on our back porch with some apps and adult beverages””for the human adults, of course!) BREAKFAST Whole wheat toast with almond butter, banana, and Fage Greek yogurt After breakfast, I swung by Marylou’s to grab…

Hi, guys! Check out my recipe for Sweet Mint Limeade over on the Wayfair IdeaLounge! It’s one of my new favorite juices and it just screams warm weather! And I love that it only requires 4 ingredients, so you can whip it up in a matter of minutes! (Ok, now I have a major craving for this juice. I might just need to go make myself one!) Some eats from today”¦ Breakfast Breakfast ended up…

Good morning! Happy Monday, friends! Anyone else a fan of eating a big breakfast? I love them! And I even look forward to eating breakfast the night before! Of course, I love a big ol’ breakfast on the weekend (mmm… a leisurely pancake breakfast anyone?), but I also eat fairly large breakfasts during the week too. I find that starting my day with a well-rounded meal fills me up and keeps me satisfied all morning…
