Hi, guys! Happy Tuesday! It is HOT here… like really hot… like holy heat wave hot. I’m working from my home office right now, but I might need a change of scenery and air conditioning soon! This morning, I was up and at ’em working before my boys woke up – well, besides Murphy, who hops out of bed as soon as I am a wake because: food potential. The dog is always on top…

Good morning! These two adorable boys were both up to school yesterday morning, which left me homebound all day long. We dropped my car off for detailing on Monday night, so I had no means of leaving the house. And, for some reason, I had some anxiety about this fact. I love being home and can totally be a homebody at times, but the thought of not being able to leave at all kind of…

Hi, friends! Happy Labor Day to you! How was your long weekend? Ours was both nice and busy, which I guess was the perfect end to the summer. 🙂 Guys, our summer was crazy, and I feel like we didn’t stop moving for nearly 3 months. I’m not complaining—it was all fun stuff—but now I’m more than ready to get back into a routine. Mal is back to school tomorrow, Qman is going to daycare, and…

Hi, friends! Our little family enjoyed our last day of summer vacation with a visit to Hornstra Dairy Farm! Hornstra Farm has a farm storm, which is open year-round. Inside is all sorts of fresh produce, baked goods, and dairy products, which are also offered on their home delivery trucks. Yep, that’s right. Hornstra Farm delivers their products, including milk in glass bottles, right to your home and it’s actually not that expensive. There’s just a 4-product minimum +…

Good morning! Happy Monday and happy Martin Luther King Jr. Day! We had a pretty low-key weekend over here, which was wonderful and much-needed, so I don’t have too much to report, but I have a some important and not-so-important things I want you to know, so here goes! Tickets for the BLEND Retreat are now on sale! Say what? BLEND Retreat? Never heard of it? Well, the BLEND Retreat (“blogger” + “friend”) is a retreat…

Here’s part two of my adventures with Ben & Jerry’s! (If you missed part one, here it is!) The second day with Ben & Jerry’s was another jam-packed and fun-filled one. Here are some highlights from the day! We took a tour of the Waterbury location and learned all about the history of the company, their social mission, and the ice cream-making process at the factory. The tour concluded in the “FlavoRoom” with samples of a special…

There are definitely worse things in life than eating too much ice cream, right? Here’s a recap of Day 1 of my time in Vermont with Ben & Jerry’s! Our day started bright and early with breakfast at The Skinny Pancake. I thought I knew every restaurant in Burlington, but I had never heard of The Skinny Pancake, so I checked out the menu online the night before. Everything sounded delicious, so I was really…

Hi, guys! Happy Monday! Guess where I am right now!? VERMONT! Aka “God’s country” and one of my favorite places ever! [old photo from September 2010 in Stowe, Vermont #nerdalert #sweetsunglasses] I arrived last night in Burlington, Vermont for a 3-day blogger trip hosted by Ben & Jerry’s. When I received the invitation, I knew I couldn’t turn it down. Spend time in Vermont? Eat ice cream? HELLO. It sounded like this pregnant lady’s dream…

Hello, hello! I apologize for slacking on my weekly meal plans lately. It’s been so frickin’ hot on the South Shore lately, I haven’t done much cooking. We don’t have AC in our house (just the bedroom), so the thought of turning on the oven when it’s 90-something degrees outside is just not appealing at all, so I’ve been winging it with our meals lately. Basically, there hasn’t been a lot of meal planning going…

Hi, friends! Happy Tuesday! Let’s get right to it! Breakfast Yesterday started with a glass of freshly pressed juice. Oh, how I love green juice! In the mix: spinach, kale, carrots, apple, cucumber, celery, ginger, and watermelon. (Here are the approximate measurements, minus the lemon + watermelon.) Then, I whipped up a French Toast Breakfast Scramble, which I ate with some pineapple. It was a wonderfully delicious and nutritious breakfast! I spent the morning working…
