Hi, guys! Happy Friday! The weekend is so close, I can taste it! 🙂 FYI: The walk challenge starts on SUNDAY! If you’re looking for a challenge this month and haven’t signed up yet, be sure to register! We’re right in the middle of football season, which means I’m eating, drinking, and being merry while not watching all that much football! 😉 I like football just fine, but I’m a much bigger fan of the…

Hello and happy Monday! It was another busy weekend for us! We didn’t stop moving from Friday evening until Sunday night, and I feel like we need another weekend just to recover from our weekend! FRIDAY was date night! Mal and I went out to dinner at Orta and had a phenomenal time. We absolutely loved our experience and we’ll definitely visit again. Meal highlights: Mussels served with (so much) bacon and tomato, Filet Mignon (Mal ordered it, but shared with me), and…

Oh, boy, do I have a delicious recipe for you guys. This spinach-artichoke dip was a huge hit in our house, and I have a good feeling it will wow your family and friends too. It’s also incredibly easy to make and relatively healthy, unlike some of those store-bought spinach-artichoke dips on the market. Ok, are you ready for this recipe? It’s a GOOD ONE! Ingredients: 12 ounces marinated jarred artichokes 10 ounces chopped frozen spinach, defrosted…

Hey, hey! Happy Monday! I hope you had a fabulous weekend! Here are some photos from mine! Q and I went to stroller bootcamp on Saturday morning. It was insanely humid and the workout was really challenging, so I was a dripping, sweaty mess by the end. It was awesome. After stroller bootcamp, Q and I grabbed iced coffees for Mal and me and then headed home. I spent the rest of the afternoon working…

Hi, friends! Happy Monday! How was your weekend? Mine was super low-key, and it was awesome. Sometimes, those are the best kinds of weekends because they leave you energized instead of exhausted. I actually have a lot going on in the coming weeks, so I definitely appreciated the downtime. My fall is going to be absolutely nuts””more on that later! FRIDAY I spent Friday evening on our sun porch with Mal and Murphy. We opened…

Good morning! Last night, Mal and I went to our friends’ condo to watch the Pats game together. They said we could bring “Mugs” (Murphy + pug), so we brought our furchild along. When Mal and I travel with the pug, one person always takes the dog while the other person carries the stuff. Whenever Murphy arrives at a new place, he’s always SO excited and pulls at his leash and pings back and forth…

Hooray!!! Harvard won The Game 45 – 7! They kicked some butt! Game day started with a delicious breakfast at The Riverwind Inn, where Mal and I spent Friday night. The Riverwind Inn is the quintessential New England bed & breakfast. It’s located in quaint Deep River, Connecticut just outside Essex in the Connecticut River Valley. The original house was built in 1854 and has been operating as an inn since 1985. The décor was…

“If you fail to prepare, prepare to fail.” Wise, wise words with regard to running (and life, in general) from Steve Prefontaine. Actually, he has a lot of great running quotes. Here are a few of my favorites: “To give anything less than your best is to sacrifice the gift.” “You cannot propel yourself forward by patting yourself on the back.” “Success isn’t how far you got, but the distance you traveled from where you started.” As…

Can you guess who came up with the title for this evening’s blog post?! My husband is so clever, isn’t he? 😉 In the late afternoon, Mal and I headed over to Dave and Marie’s house to watch football and enjoy dinner with them. When we arrived, Marie had just finished putting together a big pot of beef stew. Mmm! What a wonderful surprise! 😀 While the stew simmered on the stovetop, the guys watched…

My favorite time of year is here: football season!!! Ok, the above statement is a complete lie. I actually dislike football, but I’m attempting to like it this year. Mal and his BBF, Dave, are freaks love football and already have plans to get together every Sunday (or Monday) for the game until the end of the season. I don’t want to miss out on the fun (or the yummy food), so I figure if I can’t…
