Good morning! Q-Man (aka “Cumin”) turns 22 months old later this week, so I documented last Friday as a way to remember this time in our life. I’m actually heading to Los Angeles for part of this week, so I didn’t want to miss our usual Day In The Life post, so I decided to do it a little early. With that, here’s a glimpse into what life is like at almost 2 years old. (I’ve actually…

Good morning and HAPPY MONDAY to you! How was your weekend? We had a really nice weekend over here. Once again, it flew by (holy cow), but only because we had such a great time and you know how it goes: Time flies when you’re having fun! Ha! Anyway, here’s a little recap from our weekend! Friday afternoon: Quinn, Murphy, and I joined my friend Jess along with her nephew and dog for an afternoon walk….

Hello! I saw this survey on Ashley‘s blog the other day, and I thought it would make a fun post on CNC, so here goes!

A quick hello! The glorious finish. Run happy Boston! Almost didn’t buy. (Glad I did.) Team Stonyfield brunch. Eggs, bacon, potatoes. Running blogger moms!!

Tomorrow, I will run the 119th Boston Marathon. It is a dream come true and one that wouldn’t be possible without the support from so many wonderful people in my life. Training was really tough at times. Dealing with the snowiest winter ever in New England made running seem almost impossible at times and figuring out how to balance training with a baby, work, home life, and everything else took quite a bit of coordination. But, of course, I know…

The marathon is just 4 days from today! FOUR!! AHHHH! I can’t believe it. I really can’t believe it. I am so excited and so nervous at the same time. At this point, I know I need to just trust my training, stop obsessively checking the weather forecast, and focus on the things that I can control, like my OUTFIT for race day. I’ve also received quite a few questions from readers about what I am wearing…

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.

I had a special delivery for a special friend yesterday! This month’s blog post theme is all about sharing the Stonyfield love, so I put together a fun goodie bag for my friend Kerrie. Inside was Stonyfield Salted Caramel Organic Greek Yogurt and some…

Today is one of my favorite days ever. It’s National Carrot Cake Day, and it’s also the day that I started Carrot ”˜N’ Cake seven years ago. Holy cow. I still can’t believe it’s been seven years. Since the start of CNC, I got married, adopted Murphy, bought a house, quit my full-time job, wrote two books, ran two marathons, started CrossFit, was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis, rode a roller-coaster of symptoms and emotions trying…

Hi, friends! You know that game “Two Truths and a Lie?” Well, if not, it’s an icebreaker game. You think of three statements about yourself: two are true statements and one is false. Then, the other people guess which one is a lie. Simple as that! I thought this game would make a fun post, so here are 10 truths and a lie””many of which are based on things that happened yesterday, but some are totally…

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,…

Go Team Stonyfield!  I had a glorious 75-minute run yesterday afternoon. Woohoo! It felt so great to just throw on my sneakers, listen to some tunes, and enjoy some ‘me’ time. It was seriously so fun, and I felt like I was flying at times!…
