Tuesday in a nutshell: Orangetheory, shrimp tacos, and conjunctivitis! Quinn slept until nearly 7:00 AM, which was awesome, but also meant that our usual morning was cut short a bit. Usually, we lounge around the house, drink iced coffee/milk, and take our time getting ready, but we had places to go and people to see! 🙂 On the agenda: Orangetheory! Mal and I love taking classes together, but we don’t get to go all that often…

Hi, guys! Friday afternoon and evening were so incredibly fun! Seriously, it was probably the best of the summer so far! 🙂 After Quinn’s nap, we took Murphy to the park to stretch his pug legs and give the humans a little exercise of their own. Obviously, Murph Dog was pumped – just look at that face! We haven’t been to the park (Bare Cove) in awhile because dogs are now required to be on-leash. It’s…

Happy (belated) birthday to Murphy! Our little puglet turned 7 years old the other day and, of course, we needed to celebrate. Before he even knew the plan, Murphy was already super pumped for a “ride in the car.” We picked up Quinn early from daycare and then drove to Hingham. We met Dada there and then walked over to Maggie’s Dog House for Murphy’s birthday surprise. Remember Murphy’s Subaru adventure that was filmed at Maggie’s?…

Hi, guys! How is your Labor Day weekend going so far? I’m just popping in with a quick post about our recent trip to Weir River Farm for their Open Barnyard Hours. From now through October, the farm opens their barnyard every 1st and 3rd Saturday of the month, so visitors can explore and meet their animals. Pro tip: If you have a toddler/small child, you might want to bring a stroller along. There wasn’t a…

Hi, friends! I have an awesome giveaway for the local (and Dallas, Texas) readers! Here’s your chance to win a Signature Manicure and Pedicure from MiniLuxe! Last week, I was invited to enjoy a manicure and pedicure at the Hingham location in the Derby Street Shoppes. I shop there all the time, but never stopped into MiniLuxe, so I was excited to check it out. Plus, I can’t even tell you the last time I…

Hi, guys! How was your weekend? Mine was filled with good friends, good food, and plenty of good times! It was truly a wonderful weekend. On Saturday night, we had a couple of friends over for pizza night. Mal whipped up some homemade dough (recipe from the Bread Baker’s Apprentice), which was surprisingly easy to make. He needed to make it the night before and store it in the refrigerator, but it was so simple. The directions…

Six years ago today, I married my best friend, who also just happens to be a handsome devil. Lucky me! To celebrate our anniversary, Mal and I got all dressed up this afternoon, left Q with his Mimi and Papi, and went out to lunch together. Last week, the nice folks from Caffe Tosca invited me to lunch, so I took them up on their offer. A leisurely lunch on a beautiful day was a great way to celebrate six years…

Mal, Q, Murphy, and I finally got out of the house this weekend! Hooray! Since I’m breastfeeding and Q eats every 1-3 hours, I’m basically on his schedule, which means we’ve stuck close to home since he was born (except for a couple of trips to the park and the pediatrician). Mal and I were both feeling some serious cabin fever (and getting cranky about it), so we made ourselves get out of the house and, man,…

Good morning and happy Thursday! Yesterday afternoon, I got my shop on. Mal and I are redoing our sun porch, so I bought a bunch of decorative accessories at HomeGoods to spice it up. I made a Sun Porch Ideas board on Pinterest, which inspired me and helped me pick out all of my purchases. Look at me being all stylish! I think our sun porch is going to turn out really well, and I can’t…

Alternate post title: “Secret Physique Hingham, Murphy Likes Cupcakes & My WODs Are In A CrossFit Magazine,” but I thought it was ridiculously too long. After breakfast yesterday morning, I headed to Secret Physique in Hingham to take my friend Chrissy’s class. She texted me on Tuesday night to see if I wanted to go since her husband was also taking the class. We’ve been trying to get together for a few weeks now, so…

Hi, guys! Let’s get right to it. Fun day to recap! Breakfast Our friends Erin and Ping (pug) came to visit bright and early yesterday morning. Erin (and Ping) had already eaten breakfast, so Mal made a couple of bagel egg and cheese sandwiches for us. On the way to our house, Erin offered to pick up Marylou’s for us, so I also enjoyed a delicious Peanut Butter Wonderful Iced Coffee with breakfast. Thanks, Erin!…

You know it’s going to be a good day when you find out that your workout is called “Heavy Shit Roulette.” Obviously, I was super psyched for this WOD. Breakfast Before I headed to CrossFit this morning, I ate breakfast, which was a pancake made with Kodiak Cake Mix, an egg, and chia seeds. The pancake I ate yesterday morning didn’t hold me over very well, so I threw in an egg for some added…

Wow. What a wonderful Wednesday it has been for me. I love school vacation week.  Workout I was planning to take a rest day today since the CrossFit Open officially starts tonight (and I’m registered for it!), but our box’s WOD looked “easy,” so I decided to go. Boy, was I wrong about it. WOD: “Best of Three” This workout will be divided into three parts, a row, a run, and an AMRAP for Doubs….

Mal received an early Christmas present this year! Well, technically, he bought it for himself, but it’s quite the present! Here’s his new 2008 Subaru Impreza 2.5i. Needless to say, he is so psyched! Making it official! I just have to say that we had a really wonderful experience at Colonial Chevrolet in Acton, MA. You never know how things are going to go at a car dealership. I always feel so skeptical of car…
