Another Newport weekend is in the books, and it might just be one of my favorites yet! 🙂 It was our 11th year visiting and Quinn’s 7th (feel free to do the math on that one), and it’s still one of our favorite weekends of the entire year. It just never gets old, and I truly cherish the moments we spend together there as a family. That said, here’s a recap of our Newport weekend!…

Hi, friends! Another annual Newport weekend is in the books! It was our 10th year visiting (and Quinn’s 6th – feel free to do the math on that one), and it’s still one of our favorites (if not our FAVORITE) weekend of the entire year. We have so many wonderful memories from our trips to Newport and always make more there! 🙂 FRIDAY We arrived early Friday evening, got settled, and then Quinn and I…

Another Newport weekend is in the books! This was our 9th year visiting (Qman’s 5th – feel free to do the math on that one ;)), and it’s still our favorite weekend of the year! Friday Annual cart photo! 🙂 Once we were settled, we headed out into Newport to do some exploring and grab dinner. We went to The Deck for dinner, which was just okay food- and drink-wise, but the views were incredible!…

Hello and happy Monday, friends! Did you have a nice weekend? We spent part of our weekend down in Newport, Rhode Island for our annual family trip. Fun fact: Even though Qman is only 2 years old, this year was technically his 4th annual Newport trip. Figure that one out! 🙂 When we arrived, we did our usual Friday evening routine: Lugging way too much stuff inside, building a fire, and then ordering take-out Thai food for dinner. Our trip always…

Hi, friends! We’re home from Newport now and we had a wonderful time there. It was great spending time with family, and I especially love all of our traditions. They’re the best part of our trip, and I look forward to them so much. On our final night in Newport, we enjoyed an early dinner at Midtown Oyster Bar. Mal and I actually first dined here when I was newly pregnant with Q-Man. If you look…

Hi, friends! Happy Sunday to you! I just wanted to share some photos from our trip to Newport. We are having a wonderful time down here together. We’ve been busy, but not too busy, which is the perfect mix for a vacation, right? And I hope you’re enjoying the weekend too! Watching soccer… GOOAALLL! Shark stroller adventures. Our sweet boy. Drawing with Dada. Salad with shrimp. Rainy day arcade. First Skee Ball. Overhand throw. Oops. So much…

Greetings from Newport, Rhode Island! A little someone woke up bright and early this morning (I assume he was too excited to sleep!), so we were up and at ’em before the sunrise. Mal and I both wanted (needed?) coffee, so we got ourselves ready for the day. (Quinn thought the hairdryer was hilarious.) The weather was a little chilly and quite windy, so we all bundled up. (Quinn’s super cool shark stroller is from Amazon.) We…

This post is sponsored by Blue Diamond Almonds. Alternate title: How to Behave at a Bachelorette Party When You’re Running a Marathon the Next Day Over the weekend, I drove down to Newport, Rhode Island for a friend’s bachelorette party. Of course, I knew I would be running the Boston Marathon on Monday, but there was no way I could miss her big girls’ weekend away. I knew it would be a ton of fun, so I planned to enjoy myself…

Catching up? Check out my posts from our Newport weekend! 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. Mal and I woke up early with Quinn and took him for a stroll downtown. We were in search of iced…

The second part of Sunday involved a trip to one of my favorite (possibly my favorite) places in Newport: The Lawn at Castle Hill. We go every year for drinks and it’s such a pretty spot for relaxing. Round of drinks! Please note the little hand waving from the stroller! Father like son! After our time at Castle Hill, we headed back to the condo where we stayed for the rest of the evening. We…

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…

Heyyyyy! Here are some more adventures from Newport! We’re having a blast down here! The second part of Saturday involved walking around Newport and enjoying the sights and sounds of the city. Midway through our walk, it started to rain, so we popped into a restaurant to eat oysters and drink wine. We are so fancy. Helloooooo! Wine + oysters was such a fun way to spend a rainy afternoon. The live music was nice too! After our…

It’s crazy to think that when we were in Newport this time last year, I was about 6 weeks pregnant. The morning sickness, aversions (coffee!), and hunger had just started to set in, but we didn’t plan to tell anyone about my pregnancy yet””not even my in-laws. Even still, I think they were onto us. I turned down wine and pumpkin beer, and I woke up in the middle of the night and ate a container of…

Good morning, friends! On Sunday, it rained all morning and afternoon, so our second day in Newport was pretty low-key. Breakfast Mal and I woke up starving for breakfast (I actually woke up at 3 AM and ate a container of yogurt because I was so hungry), so we headed out to Gary’s Handy Lunch for breakfast. We felt kind of bad going to breakfast without Mal’s parents, but they were still sleeping and we…

Greetings from Newport, Rhode Island! Mal and I arrived in Newport late on Friday afternoon and his parents arrived a little while later. We had a low-key evening at home in the condo””ate dinner, played at least an hour of Candy Crush (Mal and my mother-in-law got me hooked), and then went to bed early. On Saturday morning, I woke up bright and early. Ate a little something and then headed out to run 4…
