Good morning! I’m just popping in with a quick post to share some recent happenings and favorites. I didn’t write my usual weekend recap because, well, we didn’t do all that much. We got a bunch of snow, so we basically hung out around the house, which, for me, made me a bit stir crazy. It’s typically tough for me to sit still and relax (but I’m working on it), but I got a lot…

Hi, guys! Winter is definitely not over in Massachusetts. Check out all of the snow we got! And rumor has it that MORE is on its way next week. So much for an early Spring this year! So, Murphy is a huge baby when it comes to snow and often refuses to go potty when it’s too cold or “inconvenient” for him. [eye roll emoji] And, for this reason, we shovel a “pug path” for…

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…

Hey, friends! Happy Monday! Catching up after the weekend? The Breakfast Bake We’re Totally Obsessed With – I share our current favorite breakfast recipe. Early Bird Toddler Dinner at Not Your Average Joe’s – I’m sure the parents can definitely relate to this one! Ok, now that we’re all caught up, here are some photos from our weekend via iPhone. Enjoy!! Playing with Dada at CrossFit – Mal had a snow day on Friday, so he…

Hey, friends! Happy Monday! How was your weekend? Did it snow where you are? We were *supposed* to get a huge snow storm, but we ended up barely getting anything after all of the hype. And, of course, I am especially thankful for that. After last winter, I am so over snow for awhile! Anyway, we had a nice weekend over here, and I am going to recap it in numbers! Minutes of toddler snuggle time…

Guys, it’s snow madness over here! The governor declared a state of emergency and the National Guard was here in our town helping with snow removal yesterday. The snow banks are so high and parking lots are a total mess. There’s just nowhere to put it! And, not surprisingly, the schools in the area are worried about a number of safety issues related to the snow (i.e. kids waiting for the bus in the street since…

Good morning! We had another snow day and Mal was home from school yesterday, so I thought it would be fun to give you guys a little peak into our day. Here’s another edition of A New Day In The Life! 5:25 AM: I hear Quinn on the baby monitor. He’s on and off crying. Maybe he’ll go back to sleep? Mal let me sleep in until 8:00 AM (!!!!!) on Sunday morning, so it’s definitely…

Good morning and HAPPY MONDAY to you! How was your weekend? Do anything fun and exciting? Our weekend was pretty low-key and especially snowy. Down here on the South Shore, we are getting hit hard. My mom actually just texted me: “Weymouth is winning in the snow totals.” Haha! We are smack in the middle of HOLY SNOW. Spring, where are you?!? Anyway, let’s talk about something besides the weather! How about some highlights from our…

Good morning! Happy Hump Day! First things first! Some exciting news: As I prepare to run the Boston Marathon, I’m raising money for Girls on the Run of Greater Boston. I know the strength, confidence, and FUN that can come from running, so I am thrilled to support such an amazing organization. I hope you consider making a donation! Ok, so there’s a lot of snow outside. And, honestly, there’s just nowhere to run. And it was really…

Hi, friends! We’re getting slammed with snow once again. It started late last night and is rumored to continue into the evening tonight. Boo. Snow. Is it spring yet? Mal had another snow day today, so he kindly drove me to the T this morning. (I’m a freak about driving in the snow and avoid it at all costs, so I was super thankful.) The reason for my early T adventure: I needed to go into…

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!

Hello and good morning! We are snowed in over here. Yes, we are. And, according to the weather folks, the Blizzard of 2015 is going to rage on well into the early morning tomorrow. Where we are on the South Shore of Massachusetts, we’re expected to get close to three feet. Holy cow! With the wind gusts, it’s pretty crazy out there right now. Poor Murphy did not want to go outside to go potty this…

Hi, friends! The South Shore of Massachusetts was hit with another good-size snow storm. Our area got a little over a foot, which meant Mal had no school yesterday and it was essentially a snow day for me too. Of course, I can’t sit still for more than five minutes, so I stayed busy around the house. That said, here’s a little snapshot into what happened during yesterday’s snow day! Mal and I tag-teamed the…

Good morning! Happy Monday! Some random tidbits for the morning: FREE CANDY! You can get a package of M&Ms or a Snickers (or any “Mars chocolate single”) for FREE at CVS this week with your ExtraCare card! Hey, I’m excited. I have a special love affair with peanut M&Ms. The Harvest Your Bundle Sale ends tonight at midnight! Hop on it to get some amazing health and wellness resources for just $39! I posted the…

Hi, guys! First and foremost: A huge, massive, enormous THANK YOU to those of you who donated to Chad’s Lung Transplant Rehabilitation Fund! Lindsay texted me the other night to say thank you, and when I went clicked over to see how much was raised, the donations (almost $3,000!!) and comments literally brought tears to my eyes. You guys are the best, and there really is so much good in this world. I wish everyone…
