Hi, guys! I have a super easy and delicious salad that is guaranteed to please just about any group. Growing up, my Grammie use to make an incredible broccoli salad for almost all of our family gatherings. Everyone loved it, so it would often be requested for the next get-together. In recent years, my sister has adopted the responsibility of making broccoli salad for family events and, like my grandmother, she doesn’t follow a specific recipe to make it. She just…

Hello, friends! How’s your week going so far? Monday flew by for us. Here’s a little recap from our day! Quinn and I did our usually “baba” and iced coffee thing on the couch and then we ate breakfast shortly after that. Usually, Quinn doesn’t eat breakfast right away, but he was hungry yesterday. His new things at breakfast: 1) Wanting his blanket with him while he eats; 2) Putting covers on allthethings. His new…

Good morning! Since writing my post about CrossFit, running, and diet, I’ve received all sorts of questions about my diet. It seems like a lot of you guys want specifics, so I decided to document my eats from yesterday. For the most part, it was a “normal” day of eating for me”” although, it’s just one of many days. I was more snack-y than usual, but I tend to become a bit of a “snack monster” if I’m just…

This recipe post is part of my partnership with Grapes from California. I hope you enjoy it! It’s perfect for an easy summer evening. What a whirlwind few days. I can’t believe another summer weekend is in the books. The weeks are really flying by, aren’t they? Dear Summer: Please slow down. I think you guys probably already know this about me, but summer is my absolute favorite time of year. I honestly love everything about…

Helloooo! We had a nice, little Wednesday over here yesterday. It started bright and early with breakfast with my favorite boy. Mal and I take turns doing the “morning shift” (usually on the weekends, but now during the week since he’s off for the summer), so I let him sleep in. A couple of hours later, “Dada” woke up and helped us with the laundry, which he decided to throw all over Quinn. It was pretty…

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,…

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:…

Ok, this post title is a little misleading. I probably should have called it: “What I Ate Wednesday {I Eat A Lot When I Feed a Tiny Human Multiple Times a Day}.” Basically, it’s just a post about what I ate yesterday. It’s not based on what a breastfeeding mother should eat or anything like that. Personally, I just try to eat a variety of (mostly healthy) foods everyday. Ok, here we go! 3:30 AM…

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…

Yesterday afternoon I was invited to attend a media preview at the new Sweetgreen location in Fort Point, so I headed into town to see what it was all about. Never heard of Sweetgreen? It’s basically a fast food salad shop that sources local and organic ingredients for their menu. Food-wise, it’s pretty incredible, but the company also actively promotes a healthy lifestyle in their community””from hosting “pay what you want” days and farm-to-school programs…

Good morning and happy Tuesday! Breakfast I totally ate apple crisp for breakfast yesterday morning. I actually ate two bowls because I can never eat just one when it comes to my Mom’s Apple Crisp recipe. It is so addictive. Dessert for breakfast? Totally okay every once in awhile, right? My favorite dessert-for-breakfast is leftover cake (or a cupcake) with a cup of coffee. The flavor combination is amazing and the caffeine and sugar really…
