Hi and happy Friday Thursday! I’m hitting publish a day early on this week’s Friday 5 blog post because there is just so much awesomeness inside, including all sorts of deals, giveaways, and promotions! 🙂 This week’s edition of The Friday 5 includes a tasty GIVEAWAY (for real), plus a couple of things that have helped my gut health and another 5-star review of my absolute favorite safer skincare product with a special limited-time discount…

Hi, guys! Happy Hump Day! We’re getting into the swing of things over here now that school has been in session for a few weeks. Quinn is adjusting well and really seems to love learning and making new friends. His favorite subjects are science and recess, of course! 😉 We actually signed him up for a “Mad Science” program that meets once a week, and he absolutely loves it. In fact, he asks us pretty…

Hi and happy Friday (the 13th)! I’m still in Seattle today for the Brooks Running Innovation Summit. (I’m taking a red eye home tonight.) Yesterday, we learned all about some of the brand’s new shoes that are hitting the market in early 2020. They’re under wraps for now, but I’m excited to share the details once they debut. We also got to train with Shamrock (Shaddy) Biwott, who is a Brooks-sponsored athlete. He also came…

Hey guys! Welcome to the next edition of CNC Instagram Live – and I have quite the roundup today! Most of the questions are short and sweet, so I have a total of 6 to answer for you with a super common question at the end that I typically ignore because it’s kind of… well, you’ll see… but I answered it below. Ok, here we go…     Back-to-school breakfast ideas? I’m always happy to…

Hey and happy Friday! Not only am I excited about the upcoming weekend (we’re seeing our hometown crew), but I’m excited about today’s post because #snacks. I love to travel and do it often, which means I have had plenty of practice packing healthier travel-friendly food for when we’re on the go. After lots of experimenting over the years, I’ve found that I feel best when I pack low-sugar (and high protein) options, especially when…

Hi, friends! Happy Hump Day! Does this week feel like the LONGEST week ever? My gosh, it’s crawlingggg by for me. I actually woke up thinking it was Thursday, so it was definitely a sad realization when it was only Wednesday. Whomp whomp. Anyway… I wanted to share some meals from the week so far as well as a pair of sneakers that I’m loving lately. And, for your viewing pleasure, here’s a photo of…

Hi, guys! Happy Friday before Christmas! Woohoo! I know a lot of us are heading out of town and away from our computers for the Christmas holiday, so, hopefully, you’ll have a chance to read this blog post. Either way, I wanted to share the next edition of The Friday 5! 🙂 In this semi-new feature, I share my top 5 favorites from the week – everything from products and podcasts to random musings and interesting…

Hi, guys! It’s been a little while since I’ve done a What I’m Loving Lately blog post, so this one is quite the round-up of goodies. I’ve been gathering fun/interesting links and favorite products for a few weeks now, and I’m especially excited to share them with you. Let’s get right to it, shall we? 🙂 Brooks Ugly Sweater Sneakers (aka Levitate 2) – You guys might remember these from my Ultimate Holiday Gift Guide, but…

Hi, friends! I’m still in sunny Santa Barbara, but I’m heading home soon. It was quite the whirlwind week, and I’m excited to be home with my boys this weekend. We’re planning to go apple picking and have a low-key weekend. I’m very much looking forward to it! I can’t wait to share more details from my travel with you, but, for now, I have a fun list of what I’m loving lately! Asymmetrical Snap-Up…

Hiiii and happy Monday to you! I’m bring this blog post back to the old school days with a “3 Words Per Picture” theme. These are always fun to write and the perfect way to recap some highlights from our life lately! “Hello, Momma Poopy!” Favorite place lately! TV on ceiling (aka the best part about going to the dentist). First golf lesson. Driving range newbie. He loved it! On his own! Fun at Expo!…

Hi, guys! So, I was talking to some of my blog buddies the other day about “live” blogging. Remember the days? Us OG bloggers would publish posts within hours of something happening in our lives. I remember staying up super late after events just to write a blog post so it happened to “real” time. It was such a different time in the world of blogging (before Instagram!), but sometimes I miss it. I think…

Hi, guys! I ran my 5th Falmouth Road Race yesterday, and it was a total blast! I know I’ve said this in previous blog posts, but the Falmouth Road Race is truly the best race ever. The course is absolutely gorgeous, it’s well-organized, and the crowd can’t be beat – it’s basically like running through a party for the entire 7 miles! If you’re a runner, I highly recommend that you put this race on your…

Hi, guys! On Thursday morning, Qman ended up sleeping till about 7:15 AM, so when he came into our room, Mal and I didn’t know what was going on. Recently, we’ve had a lot of super early mornings (and middle-of-the-night wake-ups), so him sleeping that late was quite the nice surprise! Once we were up and ’em, I realized that Mal and I needed to divide and conquer if we wanted to get ourselves out the…

Hi, guys! I ran the Falmouth Road Race on Sunday and, as expected, I had a grand old time. In fact, when I crossed the finish line, I said to myself (in my head – I’m not a total creep): “Yep, still my favorite race.” Falmouth is an experience. And if you’re a runner, I highly recommend that you put this race on your bucket list. I promise it will not disappoint. A huge THANK…

If you’re a long-time reader of CNC, you probably remember my love for the Falmouth Road Race. Besides the Boston Marathon (obviously), it’s hands down my favorite road race, and I’ve run it four times now. The course is amazing, I love the distance (7.1 miles), and the enthusiastic runners and spectators make the race a PARTY. I honestly don’t think I’ve ever had so much fun at a race before! Long story short, I am…
