Hi, guys! Happy Tuesday! I’m a little behind on “day in the life” updates, but I’m working on getting them live on CNC ASAP. Summer is a FUN time for our family, so I want to remember these times and, of course, share them with you all. Plus, I heard they’re your favorite kind of blog posts, so I’ll be sure to keep ’em coming! This “day in the life” post is actually from last…

Hi, guys! Happy Thursday! I started my morning with the most deeeelicious breakfast: Bacon, egg, and avocado on a rice cake. Mmm! I could seriously eat this breakfast every day. It was a little tricky to eat, so I was careful as I took each bite of the rice cake. It did, though, fall apart at the very end. I wish I had made more breakfast “cookies,” which, FYI, aren’t sweet like a cookie. That…

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…

Hi, friends! I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving with your family and friends! What was the best thing you ate? Mine was my mom’s pumpkin pie followed by my aunt’s apple crisp, which tasted quite a lot like my mom’s recipe. I wonder if it was the same one? I dunno, but I should have asked her. Anyway, I thought it was about time for another Photo Dump, so here are a bunch of random…

What a weekend. It was definitely awesome one (house stuff + surprise birthday party + baby shower), but, holy cow, I am exhausted. Our little family didn’t stop moving from Friday to Sunday! That said, here are some photos from our jam-packed weekend. Let’s do 4 words per picture, so you guys can play along too! Target fun with Dada! Long run at Southfield. Looks different without snow. First time playing Frisbee. Surprise 30th birthday party. My…

Hi, guys! I loved reading all of your comments on my 10 Truths and a Lie post. But, jeez Louise, a lot of you guys think I have zero will-power! Haha! The statement about peanut M&Ms was actually not the lie. I really, truly have not touched the bag in days (mostly because I kind of forgot about them)! The lie was “I like my pillows like I like my pancakes: soft and fluffy,” which a few…

Good morning! Happy Hump Day, friends! Quinn slept until 5:00 AM yesterday morning and Mal did the middle-of-the-night feeding, so I actually slept last night and it was a-mazing. Well, I sort of slept. I still woke up 4 or 5 times to change my clothes because of the night sweats, but I fell right back to sleep every time, so it was a win in my book. Breakfast at 5:30 AM: Toasted English muffin…

Heyyyyyy! Happy Day-Before-Halloween! A little recap of yesterday… Quinn woke up at 4:00 AM and then would not go back to sleep. Whomp whomp. For the past week or so, he was sleeping 7-9 hours, rocking the 3:30 AM feeding, and then sleeping until 6:00/7:00 AM, which was awesome, but then he switched things up on us. It was a rough morning and he just cried and cried and cried, so after I ate breakfast,…

Hi, friends! Here is another edition of A New Day In The Life, a little snapshot into our days. I really enjoy writing these posts, and I love looking back to see what life was like with Quinn even just a couple of months ago. It’s crazy how quickly things change with a baby. Ok, here we ago! 1:30 AM – I hear Quinn on the baby monitor and he’s ready to eat! I feed him. 2:00…

Good morning! Yesterday started with COFFEE! It’s not even the caffeinated stuff, but I swear the taste alone puts me in a good mood and gets me going! And I tried a new coconut milk creamer in it, which was everything I expected and more. I actually saw it in my Instagram feed, and I knew I needed some in my life ASAP. It makes my iced coffee quite a bit creamier than almond milk….

Hi, friends! So, this is actually the second time I am writing this blog post since the first one got eaten up by the WordPress app on my phone/it doesn’t agree with the server at Dreamhost. I don’t know what happened exactly, but I finished this post at 3:45 AM this morning and when I went to publish it this morning, it reverted to the old version. *Sigh* It was super annoying. Anyway… On Monday, I…

Good morning! Q and I survived our first two days home alone! Haha! No major meltdowns and we even went on a couple of adventures! Tuesday After saying goodbye to Mal, Q and I headed out around the neighborhood for a 35-minute power walk. I actually planned to run with him in the jogging stroller, but walking just seemed more appealing. Maybe I wasn’t quite awake yet, but I assume it was probably the heat….

Q and I had a nice, sweaty workout this morning! I packed up all of our gear (my diaper bag now doubles as a workout bag) and drove to Southfield to do some running and walking together. When I was training for a half marathon last fall, I did a lot of my long runs at Southfield. There are miles and miles of paved sidewalks, so it was perfect for the jogging stroller (and long…

Hello, hello! I just got back from a glorious 11-mile run. Ok, “glorious” probably isn’t the best word to describe it””running is hard and not as easy as I remember it, and it’s been really tough for me to get back into it””but this morning’s run was one of the more enjoyable ones I’ve had during my half marathon training. [rewind to earlier to this morning] Breakfast I knew a long run was on my…
