Good morning and a very happy Monday to you! Somehow I haven’t done a Life Via iPhone (aka “photo dump) post since January. Whattttt?! I know a lot of you guys enjoy them, so it’s definitely time for another one. I’m also really into Snapchat lately, so I’ve included some fun “snaps” too. (FYI:  You can find me on Snapchat by name at ‘carrotsncake’.) Ok, so without further ado, here’s a glimpse into our life…

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! It’s time for another A New Day In The Life post. I originally planned to write one per month as a way to remember Quinn’s first year, but somehow I missed March. I guess it was a busy month, but isn’t that what happens with the baby book too? My sister told me she stopped writing in Matthew’s around 10 months, so maybe that’s it? I dunno. But, here’s a peek inside our…

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! 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…

Heyyyyyyy! Happy weekend, friends! I slept for almost 12 hours last night, which is both insane and awesome, so I woke up bright and early this morning and ready to start the day. Carpe diem! Breakfast I was really hungry when I woke up, so I immediately headed to the kitchen to make breakfast, but, unfortunately, we didn’t really have any food in the house. (I’m pretty sure Mal ate a lot of take-out when…

Heyyyyyy! It’s a hot one out there today! So hot, in fact, that Murphy and I needed to take a ride in the car to Marylou’s for an iced coffee (for me) and a Milk Bone (for him). The pug got so excited at the drive-up window this morning, I could barely order my drink over his barking! Haha! Breakfast I woke up bright and early this morning to finish a few last-minute items before…

Hi, friends! Happy Hump Day! I hope your week is off to a fabulous start! Breakfast I started yesterday morning with my favorite (current) breakfast: green juice + a toasted, gluten-free English muffin with peanut butter and banana on one side and sunflower butter and banana on the other side. I could seriously eat this breakfast every morning. It’s the perfect combo””delicious, nutritious, and satisfying! After breakfast, I got to work. Since I’m leaving for…

Hi, guys! Happy Tuesday! After our weekend of home improvement projects, Mal and I spent today getting our life back in order””running errands, cleaning and organizing the house, etc. But, first, we got our WOD on at CrossFit. Workout Today’s WOD was a good one! Running and air squats probably don’t sound too tough, but let me tell you, my quads were burning like crazy during this workout. Plus, I tried to keep up with a speedy…

As much as I love traveling, I always miss Mal and Murphy when I go away. Every time I leave for a trip, I get an empty pit-in-the-stomach feeling. However, once I arrive at my destination, I always feel better, but our goodbyes get me every time. I guess missing Mal and Murph makes coming home that much sweeter, right? I mean, how adorable are these two?! Breakfast I started my day with a delicious…
