Hello! How was your (hopefully long) weekend? Ours was really nice. I feel like we didn’t do all that much, but when I looked back through the photos on my iPhone that I took over the weekend, we actually did quite a lot of fun stuff. That said, here’s a recap of the best things (15 of them in chronological order) from our weekend! #1: A challenging, but fun partner workout with Mal at CrossFit on Saturday morning. I…

Hi, friends! Happy Sunday to you! If you’re working on your meal plan for the week ahead, here’s another edition of What We Ate for Dinner. I hope it gives you some good ideas! SUNDAY: Chicken burgers + sweet potato fries + green beans Sunday’s dinner was totally from the freezer and it came together in no time at all. I cooked the burgers and fries in the oven together and steamed the green beans…

Hello, hello! A friend of mine, who works for the Quincy Chamber of Commerce, asked me if I wanted to feature one of the participating restaurants in their Taste Quincy Restaurant Week on CNC, which starts next week and runs for TWO WEEKS (March 23 – April 3), and I was all about it. A couple of important/awesome details: Lunch 2 for $10, Lunch 2 for $15, Dinner 2 for $20, Dinner 2 for $30 and there are more than 20 restaurants participating….

Hello, hello! Happy Monday, friends! I hope you had a wonderful weekend! Here are some highlights from mine! From top: A special someone turned 7 months old on Friday. He’s turning into a little boy right before our eyes! On Saturday night, we had some friends over to watch the Pats game. We served Grandma’s wings, veggies + dip, chips + salsa, habanero BBQ almonds, bacon-wrapped crackers (OMG, so good), and pepperoni pizza. Quinn’s newest…

I celebrated my 34th birthday yesterday! The day ended up being pretty low-key, but it was exactly what I wanted. I started my day with a delicious glass of Marylou’s white chocolate chip iced coffee with iced coffee cubes and chocolate almond milk in the mix. This flavor combo = AMAZING. Mal, Q, and Murphy were all sound asleep when I woke up, so I snuck into my office to do some work. A couple of…

Good morning and happy, happy, happy Monday to you! Mal and I had a great time in New York City, but it was definitely a quick trip. We arrived in the Big Apple pretty late on Friday night and then headed home first thing Sunday morning, so our whole NYC weekend was over before we knew it. Even still, it was a nice little getaway and who knows how many of these we will have…

Hi, friends! Happy, happy, happy Friday! Just wanted to share some things I am especially loving lately. And, of course, I’d love to hear what you’re digging too! Drop me a comment below! Trader Joe’s in Hingham We all love Trader Joe’s, right? I mean, who doesn’t? Crazy people that’s for sure. Anyway, a new location went in about 15 minutes away from my house, so I am totally pumped. And this location (in Hingham)…

Last night, Mal and I cashed in a Groupon for a Sushi 101 class at Samba in Framingham. One of my goals for 2013 was to learn how to make sushi, so when a reader sent me a link to this Groupon, I was all about it! The 1.5 hour-class was instructed by Chef Ginzu, who demonstrated how to make a couple of maki rolls (California and Spicy Tuna), and then let us loose to…

After some time at the beach and lunch, Mal and I got picked up at our hotel for a surf lesson on Waikiki Beach with the Hans Hendemann Surf School. I was both excited and nervous to try surfing. Excited because it looked like a lot of fun and it was one of my goals for 2013. I was nervous because I’m not the best swimmer, and I’m really afraid of sharks. Well, my worries…

Hi, friends! Since I recently reviewed my goals for 2012, I thought I’d blog about my goals for 2013. I’m not much of a resolution person (a year is a long time!), but I’m all about goals! With that said, here are my goals for 2013! My goals for 2013: Keep my colon healthy I know it’s sort of gross, but this is my #1 goal for 2013. If you don’t have your health, you…

Ho, ho, ho! Did this weekend fly by for anyone else? Holy moly. I feel like it was just Friday afternoon. Time flies when you’re having fun! Let’s do a quick recap of the past few days, shall we? Friday On Friday evening, Mal and I went to Elizabeth and Nick’s condo for a fun night in, which included friends, sushi, cider, games, and an adorable French bulldog. Honestly, what more could you ask for?…

Hello, hello! Apparently, I’m a big fan of this post title because I used it back in December 2008 and then more recently in June with “Super Duper Sunday.” Haha! I’m so creative. Well, it was the perfect way to describe yesterday. Mal, Murphy, and I had a super Sunday! Breakfast I started my day with a Sweet Breakfast Scramble in an almost-empty Teddie peanut butter jar with, of course, an extra scoop because I love nut…

I’m home! Hooray! As much as I love traveling, I really love coming home to my guys. I always miss them so much when I’m gone. [rewind to yesterday morning] Monica and I both had early flights home, so we arranged for the Super Shuttle to pick us up at the hotel and bring us to the airport. [Photo source: Monica] Snack On the ride, I snacked on a KIND bar. Maybe my stomach was…

Hi, friends! I hope you’re enjoying a fabulous weekend! Mine has been really great. In fact, the past 24 hours have been especially nice, so I thought I’d write a post about what has made me happy. Here goes! Picking the winning horse in the Kentucky Derby. Last night, Mal and I went over to Elizabeth and Nick’s condo to watch the Kentucky Derby. Before the race started, we each picked a horse to win….

So, I have a new favorite sushi restaurant: Owl Station Bar & Bistro in South Boston. I honestly loved everything about it. The food, atmosphere, and service were all excellent. In fact, I enjoyed my time at Owl Station so much, I’m already planning another visit very soon. Last Saturday night, I had the pleasure of celebrating Elizabeth‘s 30th birthday at Owl Station with a fabulous night of sushi, sake bombs, scorpion bowls, and the coolest cupcakes…
