Good morning! Happy Tuesday to you! So, I love reading surveys and learning new things about my favorite bloggers, so when I saw this one on Julie‘s blog last month, I was all about it. I also wasn’t sure what to blog about today, so here are some random ramblings from my life lately. Enjoy! Lately I’ve Been”¦ Making: No-Bake Mini Vanilla Almond Coconut Bars. I make a batch pretty much every week, so I have…

Good morning! I know I just wrote one of these Day In The Life posts last week, but I thought you guys might be interested in what our daycare days look like. We’re still kind of new to this whole daycare thing, so I’m still trying to figure out how to fit in work, errands, and appointments when Quinn is at daycare. I suppose this means I can’t really say what a “typically” daycare day…

Good morning, friends! I haven’t done one of these A New Day in the Life posts in a little awhile. I had planned to write one per month as a way to remember Quinn’s early days, but I missed December. Boo. Fail. But, I want to get back on track, so here is another one to add to the collection. As always, this day is just one of many and all times listed are just estimates. 4:00 AM:…

Good morning! Here are some eats from yesterday”¦ and then I have some fun “food crimes” to talk about! Breakfast: Oatmeal + a fried egg + iced coffee with eggnog. Lunch: Chunked chicken breast with roasted potatoes, steamed spinach, and buffalo sauce. Snack: Marylou’s almond cookie coffee + Greek yogurt and granola. Dinner: Cheeseburger Casserole (it was wicked good) + wine. So, Quinn and I had a rough day yesterday. He’s teething and has a nasty cold, so…

Hey, hey! Happy Friday! Here’s a little recap of yesterday… Big ol’ breakfast: Fried egg with homefries, a toasted English muffin with butter, and buffalo sauce. (FYI: I make a huge batch of homefries on Sunday –a mix of red and sweet potatoes + Montreal Steak Seasoning– and then Mal and I reheat them for breakfast all week long.) After breakfast: Errands with Quinn + White Chocolate Chip iced coffee from Marylou’s. Second breakfast: Breakfast burrito…

Hi, friends! I’m looking for some hair dryer recommendations, and I’m hoping you guys might be able to help me out! A few years ago, Mal bought me a fancy ionic hairdryer, but instead of it making my hair sleek and smooth, it makes my hair frizzy. I know. It’s suppose to do just the opposite, but it doesn’t. I’ve tried all sorts of hair products, brushes, and techniques, but, no matter what I do, my…

Good morning! Q and I were up at 3:00 AM this morning, so I have been go-go-going ever since. We finished eating/burping/pooping (him, not me) at almost 5:00 AM, which I figured was a reasonable hour to start my day, so I made breakfast and got right to work… well, after a quick, early-morning adventure. Breakfast I made myself a delicious breakfast, but, unfortunately (or should I say fortunately?), I ran out of iced coffee, so I…

Hello, hello! Happy Friday, friends! Let’s get right to it with a recap of my eats and happenings from the day! (I’m publishing this post a little earlier than usual because I have a hot date with Mal, Q, and Murphy on our back porch with some apps and adult beverages””for the human adults, of course!) BREAKFAST Whole wheat toast with almond butter, banana, and Fage Greek yogurt After breakfast, I swung by Marylou’s to grab…

Good morning, friends! I’m officially past my due date with no signs of labor””well, ok, no signs of labor that I can actually feel, but I’ll take it. More on that in a minute! Breakfast Yesterday started with a delicious, but not very pretty-looking two-ingredient pancake with almond butter, strawberry jelly, and chia seeds on top. I swear it tasted way better than it looked! After breakfast, I did a bunch of work and then headed…

Good morning, friends! I had my 39-week appointment yesterday morning. I can’t believe it was probably one of my last appointments before Baby H. arrives. I still remember my 20-week appointment and thinking the final weeks seemed so far away, but now they’re here. We’re going to have a tiny baby in no time at all! Before I left for my appointment, I stopped by Marylou’s for some iced coffee since the drive is long and…

Hi, friends! I hope your day is off to a wonderful start! Here are some of my eats from yesterday”¦ Breakfast I’ve been so boring with my breakfasts lately. I wake up craving nut butter + banana, so for the past week or so, I’ve been eating almond butter on toast with banana slices on top… every.single. morning. I’ve also been hitting up Marylou’s a lot for iced coffee, so I finally bought a bag…

Hi, friends! Thanks for all of your awesome comments on my What to Pack In Your Hospital Bag post. You guys are so smart, and I definitely got a lot of great ideas. Now, I am really itching to pack my bag and meet this baby already! A little recap from yesterday… Breakfast I started my day with a delicious bagel breakfast and a big glass of green juice. I topped my bagel with Chive…

Hello, hello! I haven’t done a daily eats post in ages now, so I decided to put one together for you guys this afternoon. I love seeing what other people eat and getting ideas for my own meals, so I hope you find these kinds of posts helpful too. If so, I’ll be sure to include them in CNC’s regular rotation in the future. Breakfast Yesterday’s breakfast was quick and easy: a warm almond butter,…

Good morning and hello from my new home office! After I killed my computer and brought it to the repair shop, I set myself up in the living room. I actually prefer working in my office away from any sort of distraction, but it’s fun to work with the TV on in the background every once in awhile. I like watching The Today Show and then LIVE! with Kelly and Michael in the morning. I…
