The other day, temps hit nearly 80 degrees here in Massachusetts and they’re projected to climb that high again today, so I’m super excited that summer is right around the corner. We have a beach sticker, and I know we’re going to spend a lot of time there in the coming months. Let’s just say there’s going to be a lot of long hours of fun in the sun! Speaking of which, restocking our sunblock…

Hi, guys! Who else is super excited that it’s officially summer? Woohoo! It’s time for BBQs, swimming, and long hours of fun in the sun! Speaking of that last thing, when was the last time you checked out the label on your sunscreen? Conventional sunscreens might be protecting you and your family from the sun, but you’ll also be applying a whole bunch of harmful chemicals to your skin. Yikes. To start, some studies have shown that…

Hi, guys! Happy FRIDAY! What a week. It was definitely one of those “run around like a chicken with its head cut off” kind of weeks. Holy cow, I’m glad it’s behind me now – especially because there are a couple of celebrations this weekend that I’m really looking forward to. My birthday (#37!) is on Monday, so we’re having a little get-together at our house on Saturday and then Sunday is Father’s Day, so we…

Good morning, friends! The weekend is almost here and you guys know what that means: Time for another edition of What I’m Loving Lately! (I wasn’t sure how many of you would be traveling or doing fun things for the 4th, so I decided to publish this post a little early.) Yeehaw! Here’s what I’m loving lately! Puzzles, puzzles, puzzles! We are seriously loving chunky wooden puzzles in our house lately. Some of Quinn’s favorites are pictured below: Melissa…

Hey, hey! If you follow @carrotsncake on social media (snapchat + Instagram), you know that our little family spent a few days on Cape Cod reently. We had an awesome time, and I snapped a zillion photos, so I have quite a few recaps coming your way, including a review of the wonderful and amazing Chatham Bars Inn (CBI), who kindly offered us complimentary accommodations during our stay. That said, let’s start at the beginning with…

Hello, hello! I’m running a half marathon this fall, so my friend Abby hooked me up with a personalized training plan. It incorporates running and CrossFit, and it’s amazing. Abby makes these customized training plans for all kinds of runners with all types of goals, so if you’re interested in working with her, drop her an email at runstrongereveryday@gmail.com. I told Abby that I wanted to increase my mileage and kick butt at my half…

After breakfast yesterday morning, I headed out for a run. It was chilly, but sunny outside, so I grabbed my gloves and slathered sunblock on my face, neck, and hands (everything else was covered). I also grabbed my iPhone and Flip Belt (because I am obsessed with it). Workout I put the David Guetta station on Pandora, enjoyed the scenery, and zoned out for 6 glorious miles. I love letting my mind wander on runs….
