Hey guys! I just wanted to pop in and talk about a question that I’ve received a ton of times in the past several weeks and months. It’s related to my iced coffee habit, which has changed to a Teechino habit. This is not a sponsored post. I don’t work with the brand; I just really like their products. A reader actually told me about Teechino awhile back, and it sounded great, so I tried it…

I’m always on the hunt for new iced coffee places, so when the sign for Bonjour Cafe at Charles David Salon & Spa on Webster Street in Hanover caught my attention, I knew I wanted to stop in sooner than later. The location is basically “on the way” to just about everything, so it was just a matter of time before I stopped in. Last Friday, Quinn and I were on our way to swim…

Good morning and happy 2018, friends! I have some New Year content coming at ya this week, but I wanted to share a video about one of the most common questions I get from CNC followers: How I make my morning iced coffee! Here’s how I brew my iced coffee – Mal and I have been making it this same way in the same coffee maker forever. It’s super simple and works great for us! Pro…

If you’ve read here for more than a second, you know that I love iced coffee, and I love STRONG iced coffee. So I was in heaven in Israel, where they’re definitely known for their coffee culture. I basically caffeinated my way through Tel Aviv. I actually tried to ordered decaf one time, but it was lost in translation, so I rationalized that I needed to caffeine to balance out my jet-lag. 🙂 One of the best…

Good morning and a happy, happy, HAPPY National Coffee Day to you! I hope you’re celebrating appropriately! My first iced coffee date was a big hit with you guys, so I thought it might be fun to include it as a regular feature on CNC. I really love hearing from you guys and hope you’ll chime in again this week! 🙂 So, I was in Chicago earlier this week for an event with Star Market to learn more…

Heyyyyyyy! How was your Monday? It was definitely one of those days for me. Nothing terrible happened by any means, but things just weren’t great, ya know? It was a Remicade day for me, so I wasn’t in the best mood to begin with, but I’m starting to change my tune about it. I used to say things like “I need to go to the hospital for stupid Remicade” and stuff like that, but I’ve realized…

Helloooooo! Happy Monday! Did you have a nice weekend? I spent mine with Mal’s family at Funny Farm. The whole crew was home for the weekend and it was so nice to spend some quality time together. That said, here are some photos fotos from the weekend! Saturday morning: Tropical Coconut iced coffee from Gourmet Donuts + a big ol’ kiss for my favorite little boy and a pug forehead photobomb. Murphy. Saturday afternoon: Burgers and…

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…

My Favorite Kind of Morning {Newport} Oysters and Wine + Date Night at Revolving Door {Newport} We Have a Baby This Year {Newport} The Lawn at Castle Hill + Grandma’s Fried Chicken {Newport} — Our last morning in Newport was a really nice one.

Hi, friends! HAPPY Monday to you! How was your weekend? Mine was quite lovely, and I still have a couple more posts for you from our Newport weekend. We had such a nice time! That said, here is a recap from yesterday morning! Sunday started with breakfast at Gary’s Handy Lunch. Mal and I randomly stumbled upon this diner last year and loved it so much, we needed to go back again this year. I…

Good morning! Yesterday started with COFFEE! It’s not even the caffeinated stuff, but I swear the taste alone puts me in a good mood and gets me going! And I tried a new coconut milk creamer in it, which was everything I expected and more. I actually saw it in my Instagram feed, and I knew I needed some in my life ASAP. It makes my iced coffee quite a bit creamier than almond milk….

Hi, friends! Happy Friday! Just wanted to share some of the frequently asked questions that I receive from readers””maybe you’ve wanted to know the answers to them too””so here are my replies! Where are your headbands from? They’re from JUNK, and I frickin’ love them””obviously, since I wear them ALL the time. I like the Flex Tie in size regular. How do you eat your coconut butter?

Hi, friends! We had a nice little Sunday yesterday. It started with a trip to the dog park where I ran with Q and the jogging stroller for about 15 minutes and, man, it was tough””so much harder than I thought it would be! I definitely need to work on it! Haha! Mal also took a turn with the jogging stroller and ran for about 20 minutes. When he started off with Q, Murphy ran after them,…

Hi, blog friends! Happy Friday! Yesterday started with a 45-minute spinning class with my best fitness buddy followed by chit-chat and iced coffee, which is one of my favorite ways to start the day. When Mal goes back to school in September, I am definitely going to miss these mornings. On my drive home from getting iced coffee, I received this text message from Mal: “Quinn is in the best mood today!” And I can’t tell you how happy…
