Hi, guys! Happy ALMOST FRIDAY to you! I’m in New York City today for an IBD advocacy event today. I can’t wait to tell you all about it! 🙂 I’ve received a number of questions from readers and followers about my favorite casual shoes in the past few weeks. I basically LIVE in sneakers and pretty much wear some sort of casual shoe everyday. I’ve shared a bunch of favorites on CNC over the years,…

Hi, friends! I’m still in sunny Santa Barbara, but I’m heading home soon. It was quite the whirlwind week, and I’m excited to be home with my boys this weekend. We’re planning to go apple picking and have a low-key weekend. I’m very much looking forward to it! I can’t wait to share more details from my travel with you, but, for now, I have a fun list of what I’m loving lately! Asymmetrical Snap-Up…

Good morning and happy Monday to you! I hope you had a very nice Easter! When I was brainstorming with Mal about how to recap our weekend on CNC, I kept talking about how it was our second time doing certain things, like Quinn’s second Easter and our second time suffering through Open WOD 14.5, so I decided to use it as a theme for this morning’s blog post. Ok, here we go… counting the seconds from our weekend! It…

This post is brought to you by Ricola® Herb & Throat drops as part of a sponsored post for Socialstars. #swissherbs Spring is in the air on the South Shore! Recently, we’ve had much warmer temperatures, sunny days, and NO SNOW, which means I’m a happy camper, and now I am anticipating the season change more than ever. And I am soooo looking forward to all things SPRING, so here are 9 things I am especially excited about in the coming weeks! Stroller…

Now that life has slowed down a bit, I’ve had a chance to stop and enjoy the little things in my life. I’ve talked in the past about how the little things are sometimes the big things and how even the smallest gesture can make a huge difference in someone’s day. Being home this week has made me realize this even more, so I wanted to share some of the little things I’ve recently enjoyed!…

Hello, hello! Just wanted to share with you guys What I’m Loving Lately! You ready? I have some good ones this week! Pile on the Miles 2014 Have you signed up for Monica‘s annual Pile on the Miles? It’s a great way to keep you motivated through November. I already signed up and set my goal to run 3 times per week (twice with the stroller and once on my own – long run). You can…

Hi, guys! Happy Hump Day! I can’t believe it’s already Wednesday. I feel like Monday and Tuesday totally flew by! Anyone else? So, this is going to be another one of those all-over-the-place posts where I tell you lots of random things (just like this one). I feel like I am all over the place with my life and thoughts lately, so I figured I’d combine everything in one blog post and just go with…

Obviously, I’m proud of myself after my half marathon performance this weekend, but the race definitely lit a fire under my butt. A year ago, I ran the same half marathon 2 minutes and 30 seconds faster. Of course, I had been training and in better health, but if you look at my half marathon times over the years, I haven’t improved all that much. Rock ‘N’ Roll USA Half Marathon Washington, DC, March 17,…
