Hi, guys! Happy Monday! I hope you had a lovely weekend. Ours was jam-packed on Saturday, but fairly low-key on Sunday, which was much-needed. I’ve been battling a nasty head cold (and I honestly didn’t think a single human could sneeze so much in 24 hours), so I’m glad that we just hung around the house yesterday – for the most part. You might have seen a video on Instagram Stories about our Trader Joe’s…

GAH!!! Look what’s happening in Massachusetts right now: MORE SNOW… and a whole heck of a lot of it! The circled area below is where we live and, hello, we could get more than 2 feet of snow! WHERE is spring!?! Stay safe, everyone! The pretty snow scene below was taken at 7:00 AM before the storm really started. Rumor has it that it’ll go well into the night! Oy. Quinn and I were awake…

Hi, guys! Happy Monday! We had quite the eventful weekend on the South Shore. We lost power for a few hours on Friday night because of the storm, but, luckily, it came back on before we all went to bed. We were VERY lucky because tons of people, including some of our friends, are STILL without power. We definitely thanked our lucky stars and offered our home for showering, charging, and whatever else was needed. What…

Hi, guys! A very happy Monday to you! How was your weekend? Ours was low-key and included minimal plans, which, honestly, was the best type of weekend. The fall has been crazzzzy for our family – and with me off to Israel later this week, a quiet weekend was exactly what we needed. Here’s a recap! Friday I finally enjoyed my first Pumpkin Spice Latte of the season. I actually shared my order on Instagram…

Hi, guys! Happy MONDAY to you! If you’re just catching up, I went all journal-style with CNC over the weekend – just like old times! I can’t believe I used to blog 3 times a day, everyday, for years. Holy cow, that was a lot of blogging! I actually forgot how much I enjoy sharing my life this way on CNC, so it might be here to stay for awhile! Anyway, here’s what happened over…

The wolf pack was reunited this past weekend, and it was glorious!!! Dave and Marie, their two girls, and two dogs stayed with us on Saturday night, so we had quite the full house. Just the seven of us (remember when we lived with Dave and Marie?) is now just the TEN of us. It’s crazy how different life is nowadays when we all get together, but I wouldn’t trade it for the world! Dave and…

Hello! How was your (hopefully long) weekend? Ours was really nice. I feel like we didn’t do all that much, but when I looked back through the photos on my iPhone that I took over the weekend, we actually did quite a lot of fun stuff. That said, here’s a recap of the best things (15 of them in chronological order) from our weekend! #1: A challenging, but fun partner workout with Mal at CrossFit on Saturday morning. I…

Good morning and happy Monday! With the CrossFit Open kicking off just last week, I decided to write this post in honor of its first workout (16.1), so here are 16 things/fun facts/randomness from the weekend! #1: On Saturday morning, Mal, Quinn, and I went to breakfast at a new (to us) restaurant called Crossroads Cafe. It was adorable inside, the food was tasty, and the staff was really friendly. We’ll definitely be back! #2: We kept…

Good morning and happy Monday! Let’s get to it with a quick recap from our weekend! FRIDAY Mal and I went on a double-date with our friends Scotty and Jess for dinner at Orta. We had such a nice time and laughed a whole lot together. Seriously. I think we spent like 90% of the meal telling stories and cracking up. Scotty and Jess are such a fun couple to spend time with, and I’m so glad…

Good morning and merry, merry, MERRY Christmas to you! Over the weekend, Quinn picked “make holiday pancakes” for 24 Days of Togetherness, so we truly embraced the season with a morning full of Christmas cheer. We played holiday music, sipped (iced) coffee with eggnog, and whipped up a big batch of Mal’s very special recipe. You guys might remember Mal’s amazing cake-like pancake recipe from years past, but this version is the best. It’s also the original recipe. When Mal was…

Hey, hey! Happy Friday, guys!! I thought having a “week in review” might be a fun way to recap our week, so here are some highlights from the past few days! I recapped MONDAY in a Day In the Life post, so you can see all of the details there! I worked like a mad woman on TUESDAY morning and then went to a doctor’s appointment before picking up Quinn from daycare. I wore my Favorite Ankle-Length Skinny…

Good morning and HAPPY MONDAY to you! How was your weekend? We had a really nice weekend over here. Once again, it flew by (holy cow), but only because we had such a great time and you know how it goes: Time flies when you’re having fun! Ha! Anyway, here’s a little recap from our weekend! Friday afternoon: Quinn, Murphy, and I joined my friend Jess along with her nephew and dog for an afternoon walk….

Hello! How was your weekend? It flew by, right? Evens still, I hope it was a GREAT one for you! Here’s another edition of “High Low High.” If you’re unfamiliar with this blog series, the posts recap the high and low points of my weekend. I always like to finish on a high note, so there are always more “highs” from my weekend than “lows.” If you’d like to play along, please leave a comment…

Hey, hey! We’re on our way home from Oregon today. It was an absolutely wonderful week away, but we’re looking forward to being home, sleeping in our own beds, and, of course, seeing Murphy. We missed that little furball! Anyway, here are some more photos from our family vacation in Oregon!

Hello, hello! School was canceled once again for Mal today, so our little family enjoyed another snow day together. Some things we’ve done in the past 48 hours: Lounged around the house (in pajamas, of course), played in the snow, cooked some delicious food and ate lots of snacks, cuddled, napped, and enjoyed being snowed in. Here are some scenes from our snow days!
