Quinn and I had quite the busy day together. It was all fun stuff, but we were busy, busy, busy! After Quinn’s morning nap, we ran some errands and then took Murphy to the park, so we all could get a little exercise and enjoy the nice Spring weather. Related: We finally have leaves on the trees! It was a beautiful morning for a park adventure, so we walked for quite awhile. At one point, we…

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…

Good morning! Happy Monday! I hope you had a wonderful 4th of July weekend. Mine was especially nice because I got to spend the majority of it with Mal’s family. His sister and her husband were in town from Seattle, so we did some of our favorite East coast things with them. On Saturday afternoon, we met Mal’s parents, his sister, and her husband in Harvard Square. My father-in-law is a Harvard alum, so he…

I had a fun birthday surprise waiting for Mal when he came home from school yesterday! I spelled out “HAPPY B-DAY” on gift bags and then bought a present that started with each of the letters for him. For the letters, I cut up a Happy Birthday sign. For the bags, I recycled ones that we already had in our “wrapping” stuff and then just used Scotch tape to stick on the letters. Then, I…

Last night, Mal and I enjoyed dinner with our friends Chrissy and Matt at Cask ”˜n Flagon in Marshfield. The four of us actually planned to have dinner at Hola since Mal and I loved it so much the last time we went there, and Chrissy and Matt were the ones who originally recommended it to us, but, sadly, we discovered it was closed for the holiday when we pulled into the parking lot last night….

You know how I always say the bad runs make you appreciate the good ones? It seems like I say that kind of a lot on CNC, so I was actually starting to wonder when I’d finally have a good run. Well, today was the day! Workout This morning, I ran eight glorious miles and felt amazing the entire time. I never felt winded, my legs never got tired, and I never felt crappy (at…

Good morning! Happy Thursday! Let’s get right to it! Dinner While I waited for dinner to cook last night, I snacked on some raw veggies with hummus, which I’ve decided is the best I-need-food-ASAP-snack ever for me. It’s nutritious, delicious, satisfying, and quick! Every time I cut up a (crunchy) vegetable for a recipe/meal/snack, I add the extra pieces to my veggie Tupperware container, so I constantly have fresh ones to snack on. It works…

I can’t believe Mal and I are flying to the West coast again! We were just there less than two weeks ago, but, this time, our visit is for something fun: skiing (me)/snowboarding (him)! Neither of us have ever skied/snowboarded on the West coast, so we are PSYCHED. We’ve heard it’s totally different than the East coast. Somehow, I managed to fit all of my ski gear (including my helmet) and clothes for five days in a…

As you probably know, I affectionately refer to my husband (Mal) and dog (Murphy) as M & m. The two of them have a very special relationship and spend a lot of time together. Murphy pretty much follows Mal everywhere he goes, but I know Mal likes it. (Just as I typed that last sentence, Mal called Murphy a “dumbass,” but swear they really love each other. 😉 ) Remember this post? Well, the pug found a new place…

Poor Murphy just had a mini heart attack! Actually, I did, too! 😯 Murph was sound asleep on my lap when the mirror, handing on the wall in our living room, came crashing down and startled him awake. It definitely surprised me, too! Murphy is still bugged-out by the mirror and barks at it every time he walks by it. Poor, guy. I hope that 7 years of bad luck are not in my future!…
