Good morning and happy Friday to you! Let’s get right to the coffee talk, shall we? Has anyone tried the new Spiced Sweet Cream Cold Brew from Starbucks? It sounds heavenly. Hopefully, it’s not too sweet, but I love the idea of spiced creamy cold brew! I can’t believe Thanksgiving is next week. November is FLYING by, right? What are your plans for Turkey Day? Are you hosting? What are you making for the holiday? So,…

Greetings from sunny California! I’m here for a blog conference on behalf of Overstock.com, who I learned has WAY MORE to offer than just furniture and home goods, BUT I am loving this adorable hideaway dog (or cat) bed ottoman that I might purchase for my office for Murphy, so he doesn’t need to sit on my lap while I work. Thirty pound dog + hours of sitting at computer + a bad back = no bueno. So, I…

Hey, hey! Happy Friday, friends! It’s that’s time again. Time for another edition of What I’m Loving Lately and it’s an especially fun round-up this week. Enjoy!! Stranger Things – OMG. This show. OBSESSED. Some friends recently recommended it to Mal and me and now we’re totally hooked. I’m not usually into sci-fi stuff, but Stranger Things reminds me a lot of The Goonies mixed with ET and the most amazing teen 80s movies. Man,…

Hi, friends! Happy Monday! How was your weekend? Did you enjoy some holiday cheer? We sure did with three more days of 24 Days of Togetherness, a holiday party, and Sunday brunch with friends. Ooooh, how I love this time of year! That said, here’s a recap of our weekend! Friday, Day 4 of 24 Days of Togetherness, was “buy each other $5 gifts.” Quinn and I ran some errands in the afternoon, so I bought…

Hi, friends! Just popping in to share some photos from our morning… well, our second morning of the day. Quinn first woke up at 3:00 AM and would not go back to sleep. Mal and I tried everything to calm him down with no luck. I finally ended up taking him for a drive at 5:45 AM. Thank goodness the drive-thru Starbucks was open! Anyway, we started our day again with a walk around Forge Pond…

Good morning and happy Friday to you! I’m back on an oatmeal kick now that Fall is here. Anyone else? I used to eat oatmeal ALLTHETIME, but once I did the whole Paleo thing, I stopped eating it on the regular. It really is the best breakfast. It’s so darn filling and you can switch it up every morning, so it’s never the same thing twice. In the mix (below): Rolled oats, banana, pumpkin seeds, sliced…

Hi, friends! Happy Friday! We’re off to Newport later today, and I am beyond excited! #favoriteweekendoftheyear Anyway, I missed What I’m Loving Lately last week and the week before, so it is definitely time for another edition!

The ends and pieces are also thicker and…

Mal and I look forward to it so much. We love everything about Newport””including all of its…

Good morning and happy Monday to you! We’re back from our vacation. We had a wonderful time with our friends in Maine, but we’re happy to be home now. Although, I have to admit, it was kind of crazy coming “home” to a brand new house. It didn’t totally feel like home, but I still enjoyed sleeping in my own bed. We drove home from Maine on Friday night and then we proceeded to have quite a busy…

Good morning! I hope your week if off to a wonderful start so far! Here’s the next edition of What I’m Loving Lately! Timi & Leslie Diaper Bags – My sister owns one of these bags and, the second I saw hers, I was in love. They look like regular handbags, but when you open it up, it’s a diaper bag. It’s the best of both worlds! Smoothies – Oh my gosh, I am such a smoothie…

Hi, friends! So, our morning started out nice and normal like a lot of mornings… We ate breakfast, said goodbye to Dad, and then we did some cruising around the living room with Quinn’s learning walker. (He frickin’ loves this thing!) Then, we ran some errands, which included a stop at Starbucks for an iced latte for Mom. (Has anyone tried Starbucks small-batch cold brew? Any good? I want to try it soon.) Then, we came home,…

Hi, friends! I can’t believe Friday is almost here. Did this week fly by for anyone else? Holy cow. I feel like it was just Monday morning. Yowsahs. Time warp. Anyway, here’s another edition of What I’m Loving Lately, which has easily become one of my favorite posts to write on CNC. I hope you guys enjoy them too and feel free to tell me what you’re digging in the comment section below. Cinnamon Raisin Avocado…
