Good morning and happy, happy, HAPPY Friday to you! We’re off to Oregon this morning. Our flight is super early, so by the time you read this post, we’ll likely be on a plane heading westward. Let’s hope all goes smoothly with our little peanut. He is one ACTIVE little boy. I mean, Mal and I get antsy on a 6-hour flight, so I can only imagine how restless Quinn will be. Hopefully, everyone on…

Helloooo! We had a nice, little Wednesday over here yesterday. It started bright and early with breakfast with my favorite boy. Mal and I take turns doing the “morning shift” (usually on the weekends, but now during the week since he’s off for the summer), so I let him sleep in. A couple of hours later, “Dada” woke up and helped us with the laundry, which he decided to throw all over Quinn. It was pretty…

Good morning! We had another snow day and Mal was home from school yesterday, so I thought it would be fun to give you guys a little peak into our day. Here’s another edition of A New Day In The Life! 5:25 AM: I hear Quinn on the baby monitor. He’s on and off crying. Maybe he’ll go back to sleep? Mal let me sleep in until 8:00 AM (!!!!!) on Sunday morning, so it’s definitely…

Good morning!!! Here’s another edition of A New Day In The Life! I really enjoy writing these posts as a way to document our new life with a baby, so here is a little snapshot into yesterday. 2:00 AM – Quinn wakes up. He’s making noises and kicking the crib, but he falls back to sleep. Thank goodness! 5:00 AM – Quinn wakes up again, but falls back to sleep. YESSSSS! 5:15 AM – Mal’s alarm goes off. He…

Hello, hello! How’s your Wednesday going so far? We had a rocky morning here, but things have greatly improved! Early-morning breakfast: English muffin with peanut butter and banana + iced coffee. I love this breakfast because I can throw it together in just a few minutes. And, of course, it’s tasty and filing! After his first feeding of the day, Quinn got cranky, which, unfortunately, has become a not-so-fun morning pattern for us. He hates…

I feel like I haven’t written about my CrossFit workouts lately. We actually did “Fran” on Monday, which is THE benchmark workout in CrossFit, so I want to make sure I blog about it. Well, I improved my Fran time by 6 minutes!!! Woohoo! Ok, my last Fran attempt was an absolute disaster, but I still managed a faster time, so I’m happy. I used 55 pounds instead of 65 pounds for the Thrusters and went…

Good morning! Happy Monday! How was your weekend? Mine was pretty low-key, but really nice. Mal and I were lazy bums and ended up watching the entire first season of American Horror Story. (Thanks to all of you who suggested it!) It’s such an intense and mysterious show, we just couldn’t stop watching it”” sort of like what happened when we started watching Lost. We watched the first couple of episodes and then got sucked…
