… if you don’t follow me on Instagram! 🙂 I really love Instagram. I find myself there more than any other place on the Interwebs. It’s just such an easy way to connect with others, and I love sharing my life there. If you don’t follow @carrotsncake on Instagram (or maybe you’re just not on Instagram), I wanted to share a few happenings that you might have missed! I (finally) created a weekly round-up of recent…

Hi, friends! Happy almost Friday to you! I was planning to share this blog post tomorrow, but I never finished my post for today (because the $40 internet on the plane was so terrible), so I decided to publish it a little early. I thought this round-up would be a great way to share some of the fun things from my week so far, so here are 5 for (almost) Friday! 1. I just had…

Helloooooo! Happy Monday! Did you have a nice weekend? I spent mine with Mal’s family at Funny Farm. The whole crew was home for the weekend and it was so nice to spend some quality time together. That said, here are some photos fotos from the weekend! Saturday morning: Tropical Coconut iced coffee from Gourmet Donuts + a big ol’ kiss for my favorite little boy and a pug forehead photobomb. Murphy. Saturday afternoon: Burgers and…

Hi, friends! Happy Monday! I hope you had a lovely weekend. Mine was nice””nothing too exciting to report, but an all-around wonderful weekend. That said, here are 8 great things that happened! Quinn and I went to stroller bootcamp, and it was so much fun. We did some running intervals, hill sprints, push-ups, plyo squats, and some core work. It was a fabulous, full-body workout and a great way to start the day! Mal, Q, and I went…

All good things must come to an end. [source] Did you watch the Breaking Bad finale last night? I don’t want to give anything away, but I like how the show ended. The writers tied up all of the loose ends and didn’t leave us hanging like some shows do. Breaking Bad is definitely a show that will go down in history as one of the best. I’m sad that it’s over, but I’m content…

Hooray! I’m hoooommmmeeeee! While I love traveling and adventures, I’m starting to realize I’m much more of a homebody than I thought. Hanging out with Mal and Murphy at home last night””after not seeing them for an entire week””made me so, so, so happy. I felt whole again, and I missed them so much. When I got home from Rhode Island yesterday afternoon, I gave Murphy the biggest pug hug ever. Home is where the…

A few weeks ago, it hit me: our sun porch was ugly. BEFORE: Ok, it wasn’t horrible to look at, but it wasn’t reflective of our style or the rest of our house. And what style it did have was just plain old boring. Clearly, our sun porch lacked style, but it was also a space that we never used because it wasn’t welcoming or comfortable. Basically, our sun porch needed a redesign, so here’s…

Hi, friends! Happy Monday! How was your weekend? Mine was super low-key, and it was awesome. Sometimes, those are the best kinds of weekends because they leave you energized instead of exhausted. I actually have a lot going on in the coming weeks, so I definitely appreciated the downtime. My fall is going to be absolutely nuts””more on that later! FRIDAY I spent Friday evening on our sun porch with Mal and Murphy. We opened…

Good morning and happy Thursday! Yesterday afternoon, I got my shop on. Mal and I are redoing our sun porch, so I bought a bunch of decorative accessories at HomeGoods to spice it up. I made a Sun Porch Ideas board on Pinterest, which inspired me and helped me pick out all of my purchases. Look at me being all stylish! I think our sun porch is going to turn out really well, and I can’t…

P.S. This Memorial Day weekend, Nikki’s Coconut Butter is offering 15% off all orders with the coupon code ‘sexyback‘ (in honor of Chris Kresser’s Sexy Back Summit) at checkout, including their amazing coconut butter sampler!

Happy birthday to my wonderful, amazing, and handsome husband! Mal turns 31 today! I don’t want to embarrass Mal with sappy a post (I’ve done that before), so I’ll just say he’s my best friend and the greatest partner I could ever ask for. We also have A LOT of fun together. While I was away at Canyon Ranch, he actually changed the background of my computer to a photo of the skull. HA! He’s…

Hi, friends! Happy Tuesday! I hope your week is off to a fabulous start! Right now, I’m sitting on the Acela train to New York City for a special trip, which I will tell you all about soon, but, first, let’s recap Monday! Breakfast Yesterday morning started bright and early with a healthy breakfast: a brown rice wrap with peanut butter and sliced banana inside and a glass of freshly pressed green juice made with…

Do you remember my I Bet You Didn’t Know posts? If you missed them, here are the 4 others I’ve written so far: I Bet You Didn’t Know I Bet You Didn’t Know II I Bet You Didn’t Know III I Bet You Didn’t Know IV These kinds of posts are fun for me to write because I get to share random (and maybe interesting?) things about myself with you guys. So, without further ado,…

Check out what I woke up to yesterday morning! Yikes! Happy Halloween from my husband. He’s such a joke-ster. I wasn’t expecting to see a skull on the pillow next to me when I woke up, but it actually didn’t startle me all that much. It scared the crap out of Murphy though! After I saw the skull, I got up and left the pug sleeping in bed. I went into the kitchen to make…
