Hi, guys! Happy, happy, HAPPY almost Friday to you! (I’m publishing this baby a little early this week.) We have quite the fun-filled weekend planned, and I can’t wait for it to get started! On Saturday, we’re planning to get our sweat on at CrossFit followed by some playtime at Hanover Day. We had such a fun time last year, and Designed to Fit Nutrition is actually one of the event’s gold sponsors, so I don’t…

Helloooooo! Happy Friday! Just wanted to pop in with a little recap of yesterday’s happenings and let you know that my knee is better! Woohoo! I iced the crap of it and took two days of rest and (*knock on wood*) it’s good as new! Pre-run eats: Slow cooker steel cut oats with a scoop of peanut butter, two eggs (I ate them before snapping a picture), and an iced coffee with SO Delicious French vanilla creamer. After breakfast,…

Go Team Stonyfield! The quote above is one of my all-time favorites because I truly believe that little, everyday changes can really add up to something big and wonderful. That said, one of my goals for 2015 is to just “roll with it” and…

A few weeks ago, when I was looking for embarrassing photos of Mal for his Super Awesome 30th Birthday Weekend, I stumbled upon my old quote book. In high school, I started it to record my favorite quotations, and I continued to do so for many years. I ended up filling the last page of my quote book sometime during my senior year of college, so I haven’t thought about it much since then. But,…

One of the best perks about working from home is afternoon cuddle time with my favorite pug. How adorable is this dog?! Murphy often spends much of the day sitting in my lap while I work at my computer. I’m sure it’s terrible for my back, but he’s so darn cute, I just can’t say no. Plus, he keeps me warm! Breakfast I woke up craving a warm, creamy bowl of oatmeal, so I whipped up…

I swear there are some mornings that my iced coffee tastes better than others. Today was one of those days. Holy yum! Cold, creamy goodness in a glass. Hey, sometimes, it’s the little things in life… Breakfast Along with my iced coffee, I enjoyed a Coconut Protein Pancake, which I made using this recipe, but I added one teaspoon of coconut extract instead of the vanilla extract. I topped my Protein Pancake with banana slices, a drizzle…

Good morning! Happy Monday! I can’t believe Christmas is next weekend! Where did the time go?!? It really doesn’t feel like it should be so soon. I love this time of year, so I guess I just need to embrace it to its fullest over the next few days.

Before CrossFit last night, I grabbed a clementine and some pistachios to snack on. As I went to photograph them, I decided to get Murphy involved””mainly because he was closely following me around the kitchen and seemed like he wanted to help. I got everything set up for the photoshoot, but then Murphy heard a noise at the front door. What is it?!? Annnndd then he was gone. Obviously, Mal coming home is a lot…
