Hi, guys! Happy Saturday! We had quite the eventful Friday night. We got a crazy rain and wind storm yesterday and ended up losing power for a few hours. We ate dinner via candlelight, which was kind of fun and reminded me of times as a kid when we lost power. Our dinners were kind of ridiculous – I ate tortilla chips, cheese, and pepperoni – but, hey, we made it work. The power came…

Hi, guys! Happy Thursday! Our sweet boy was up and at ’em at 5:30 AM this morning. He walked into our bedroom and immediately flipped on the lights. Oy. I was sound asleep, so I was so confused when I saw him standing next to the bed staring at me. Ha! Once I figured out what was going on, we headed downstairs to keep Mal company while he ate breakfast. I immediately poured myself a…

Hi, guys! Hump Day started bright and early for me. I woke up around 3:30 AM and could NOT fall back to sleep. I’ve actually been sleeping really well lately and then… BAM… crappy night of sleep. Ughhhhh. I was totally wired at that hour, and I *think* it was related to hormones (I’ve been keeping a journal), but my random Googling (in the middle of the night) didn’t clear things up. Hopefully, the hormone…

Hi, friends! Happy Saturday! I hope you’re having a wonderful weekend! I’m so glad to be home, but I woke up to slim pickings for breakfast this morning. Our kitchen was practically empty! I ended up eating leftovers from a “freezer” dinner (ground turkey + chopped spinach with garlic) the night before and a rice cake with almond butter. I also added some fermented marinated carrots from Farmhouse Culture. Not too shabby! After breakfast, we…

Good morning! Happy, happy, happy MONDAY to you! I haven’t written a “I Bet You Didn’t Know” post in quite awhile, so I figured it was time for another. If you’re unfamiliar with this blog post series, it’s basically just a bunch of random fun facts that you might not know otherwise. It always ends up being an interesting post, so here we go! Since last Christmas, we’ve read Qman “The Night Before Christmas” nearly every night…

Hello and happy Sunday, friends!! Ok, so my first week of half marathon training was kind of weird. It was great because I exercised a ton more than I usually do, but I didn’t do all that much running. *sigh* I planned to run on Thursday, but I had way too much work to do, so it just never happened. I figured I could run on Saturday morning, but then Mal wasn’t available, and Qman definitely had some energy to burn, so sitting…

Good morning and happy Sunday to you! I had some really great workouts recently, but I didn’t do all that much running. Whomp whomp. Between the holidays and the opportunity to work out with Mal while he was on Christmas break, I ended up at CrossFit quite a lot. But since the race is only a few weeks away, I’m planning to schedule more mid-week runs to get myself back on track! WEEK 5 Sunday: 8 miles Monday: KFIT Tuesday:…

Hellooooo and happy, happy, happy Monday to you! We had quite a busy weekend over here, so let’s get right to it with a weekend recap! FRIDAY Day 11: Take a family photo! SATURDAY Mal recently joined a new CrossFit, so Quinn and I went with him to check it out on Saturday morning. The WOD was a partner workout, so Mal and I teamed up, which meant we needed to share a bar and…

Good morning, friends! Happy FRIDAY to you! How was your week? We had a nice one over here, but, wow, it flew by. I’m not sure if it’s because it’s the holiday season or what, but it definitely whizzed by. Anyway, I wanted to share some highlights from our life lately, so here we go! I went to KFIT on Monday and felt like garbage during the workout. It was my fifth day in a row of exercise,…

Hi, friends! Happy Monday! How was your weekend? Did you enjoy some holiday cheer? We sure did with three more days of 24 Days of Togetherness, a holiday party, and Sunday brunch with friends. Ooooh, how I love this time of year! That said, here’s a recap of our weekend! Friday, Day 4 of 24 Days of Togetherness, was “buy each other $5 gifts.” Quinn and I ran some errands in the afternoon, so I bought…

Hi, guys! Training for my winter half marathon has officially started! And I have to admit, I’m really enjoying cold weather running. (I know”¦ who am I?) I’m so not a fan of winter, but I really enjoy running in the “chilly” temps. Well, right now I do. We’ve had a fairly mild November and early December, so we’ll see how I feel about winter running come January. Anyway, my training is off to a…

Our little dude turned 17 months old yesterday, so I wanted to write a “day in the life” post as a way to remember the day. When Quinn was first born, I used to blog about our daily adventures once a month, and it was such a great way to remember those times. I love going back and remembering what life was like at 3 months, 6 months, 9 months, etc. And, of course, I…

Hello, friends! How’s your week going so far? Monday flew by for us. Here’s a little recap from our day! Quinn and I did our usually “baba” and iced coffee thing on the couch and then we ate breakfast shortly after that. Usually, Quinn doesn’t eat breakfast right away, but he was hungry yesterday. His new things at breakfast: 1) Wanting his blanket with him while he eats; 2) Putting covers on allthethings. His new…

Hi, friends! How’s your Hump Day going so far? Mal was at a workshop all week, so it’s been just Quinn and me (and Murphy) in the mornings, which have quickly become my favorite time of day. I look forward to hearing the little guy on the monitor (even if it’s insanely early) just so we can get up and hang out together. A morning “baba” is always the first thing on our agenda, so we cuddle…

Good morning and happy Monday to you! We’re back from our vacation. We had a wonderful time with our friends in Maine, but we’re happy to be home now. Although, I have to admit, it was kind of crazy coming “home” to a brand new house. It didn’t totally feel like home, but I still enjoyed sleeping in my own bed. We drove home from Maine on Friday night and then we proceeded to have quite a busy…
