I hope you guys had a LOVELY Valentine’s Day! I spent mine with my boys, and it was so, so, so nice! The day started bright and early with hugs, kisses, and presents! 🙂 Quinn got a really cool Ninja Turtle from Mumma, Dada, and Murphy! And Mal got a sweet sweatshirt! After that, Mal left for school, and Quinn and I got ourselves ready for the day. His “Valentine’s Day outfit” was from Cat…

Hi, guys! Happy Monday to you! I hope you had a nice Easter. I have a recap of ours coming soon, but I wanted to share my workouts from last week as well as some of the delicious eats that I enjoyed. I’m glad I’ve finally got into a groove again with my workouts, and I’m finally feeling back to my old self again. As far as my eats go, I dined out quite a…

Hi, guys! I love a good “what I ate in a day” blog post because I love seeing what other people eat because it gives me ideas for my own meals and snacks. Truthfully, today wasn’t my most “perfect” day of eating, but that’s totally okay. Everyday doesn’t need to be perfectly curated and calculated to be healthy! With that, here’s a recap of my eats! Post-workout: Iced coffee protein shake made with SFH Churro,…

Hi, guys! All day today we expected some sort of wicked nor’easter (aka “a big snow storm”) and tons of schools and workplaces closed early – including Mal’s school. Well, it’s just about 5:30 PM and still NO SNOW. I’m not complaining one bit, but, man, the weather people were really confused this time. Or maybe we’re all just scared from the last few snow storms? Let’s just say, it’s been a LONG winter. Anyway……

Hi, guys! I just landed in Austin a little while ago, but I wanted to share a quick recap of my impromptu “day date” with Mal yesterday. He had Monday off from school, but Quinn’s daycare was open, so we used it as an opportunity to hangout just the two of us. I mean, it was “free” childcare since we have to pay for it if he goes or not. And, well, childcare just gets…

Celebrating 9 years of marriage with Mal was a lot of fun! I was up and at ’em taking the 5:15 AM class at CrossFit, so I swung by Coffee Shack on the way home to get Mal and me a couple of iced coffees to kick off our special day! I went with French toast iced coffee and got Mal a “plain” (not “regular”) iced coffee with a shot of espresso. Fun side note: Around here,…

Good morning! I hope everyone had a lovely Valentine’s Day! Mal and I celebrated with an early dinner at Scarlet Oak Tavern. We actually weren’t planning to do anything for the holiday, but then we forgot to use a gift certificate that we received for Christmas the last time we dined at Scarlet Oak, so we gave ourselves an “excuse” to visit again for Valentine’s Day. Hey, whatever works, right? 🙂 Mal and I met at the…

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…

Hi, friends! Happy Monday and happy National Truffle Day to you! Be sure to stop by your local Lindt Chocolate Shop to receive a complimentary LINDOR truffle! And don’t forget that my May Booty Challenge starts today! I hope you decide to join in! We had a really nice weekend, so here’s a recap via superlatives! BEST THING I ATE: It’s a toss up between The Big Island pizza (grilled chicken, smoky bacon, scallions, sweet potatoes, BBQ sauce, pineapple…

Life since Christmas? Cliffs notes: We didn’t stop moving! Holy cow. I’m exhausted. 12/26: The day after Christmas, we took down our tree and decorations… packed them up and put them in the attic until next year. Then, we cleaned the whole house. Holy pine needles! 12/27: We had friends over for wine and apps. We tested out our new Corkcicle Wine Chiller from my sister. It works great, so now we don’t have to leave the couch in order…

Good morning and happy Monday to you! How was your weekend? We had a wonderful weekend with our friends Dave and Marie and their daughter, Carly. We did all sorts of fun fall things that made me appreciate the season even more. Massachusetts in October is truly the best, and I look forward to these few weeks all year long. Anyway, here’s a recap from our weekend! On Saturday, we bought pumpkins and visited the cows at…

Hey, hey! Happy Sunday to you! Quinn is taking a nap and Mal is out running errands, so I thought I’d pop in and share some fun stuff from our weekend so far. Ok, here we go, in no particular order, the best of our weekend! DATE NIGHT WITH MY FAVORITE GUYS. By Friday, we didn’t have much food in our house, so we decided to go out to dinner at Scarlet Oak Tavern, which was…

Heyyyyy, friends! First things first since I promised my Periscope followers a recap of my meal plan for the week. Yesterday, I “scoped” our weekly grocery haul and meal plan, so I wanted to share what we’re eating this week. Sunday: Winged it/leftovers (I was at a wine tasting and then Mal was at a Fantasy Football draft) Monday: Moroccan Paleo Chicken with roasted broccoli Tuesday: Cobb salads with canned tuna (instead of chicken) Wednesday: Turkey Bolognese (from Trader…

Good morning and happy Monday! If you follow me on Instagram or Facebook, you might have already heard the big news: We bought a new house!! We closed on Friday (both on our old house and new house), so it’s been a crazy few days for us. We’re settling in nicely to our new house, and I’ll be sure to share all of the details soon, but, in the meantime, here are some scenes from…

Good morning! Happy Monday, friends! What a whirlwind week last week was. Holy cow. I think I am still recovering. Of course, it was an awesome week of adventures (Mexico! Boulder!), but I am so, so, so happy to be home. I was just telling Monica this morning that I when I am living my “normal” life, I crave travel and adventure, but as soon as I am off doing those things, I just want…
