Hey guys! We recently spent the weekend in a tiny house, courtesy of Getaway, and I wanted to tell you all about our experience aka here’s a review of Getaway Boston (tiny house) + discount code! The nice people at Getaway offered us a weekend away in one of their tiny houses. Mal and I are kind of obsessed with tiny houses, and since they’re dog friendly, we took them up on their offer and…

With holiday travel just around the corner, I wanted to re-share this blog post in case you plan on flying with baby. Mal and I were (totally) clueless during our first couple of flights with Quinn. We’ve since flown across the country more than a half dozen times with him, and it gets easier and easier every time, but I still remember one of our first flights to Seattle and, holy cow, we were a…

Hello from Des Moines! 🙂 I just wanted to pop in real quick to share a cute story from my travels yesterday. It gave me all of the warm fuzzies! 🙂 But, first, check out the throwback photo below. (I was at the 12th Annual Niman Ranch Farmer Appreciate Dinner.) It’s from 2010 when bloggers were few and far between. I remember meeting Chef John and Danielle and feeling like we were all long lost…

If you’ve read here for more than a second, you know that I love iced coffee, and I love STRONG iced coffee. So I was in heaven in Israel, where they’re definitely known for their coffee culture. I basically caffeinated my way through Tel Aviv. I actually tried to ordered decaf one time, but it was lost in translation, so I rationalized that I needed to caffeine to balance out my jet-lag. 🙂 One of the best…

Hi, guys! Happy Monday and greetings from Israel! 🙂 I’m having such a great time here and couldn’t wait for my usual “5 for Friday” blog post, so I decided to bump it to today, so I can tell you a little about some of the incredible experiences I’ve already had here. We’re just halfway through the trip, but I have SO MUCH to tell you guys! Here are just some highlights! FASCINATING – Jerusalem. What…

Good morning!! With holiday travel just around the corner, I thought you guys might be curious to see what’s on my “must-have” list. These items are ones that I almost always pack because they help me stick with my healthy habits and, honestly, they just make life easier! Here’s a recap of my favorite travel must-haves from my recent trip to San Francisco! Running Sneakers – I typically wear my sneakers to and from my…

Hi, guys! Happy Hump Day! We had such an awesome time at Stowe Mountain Lodge. What an amazing place. I seriously can’t wait to tell you guys all about it! In the meantime, I wanted to share some of our tips and tricks for keeping a tiny human entertained on a road trip. It look us about 4 hours to drive to Stowe and nearly 7 hours to get home. Ya, I know. It was…

Hi, guys! With all of the travel that I’ve done lately (and a couple of trips on the horizon), I wanted to share some of my go-to tips and tricks for tracking macros. Obviously, when you’re on-the-go, your food choices are often a crap-shoot, but you don’t want to make yourself crazy either, so here’s how I balance my day! Pre-plan your day and log it before you eat it The night before, plan out your next…

Hey, hey! We’re back from Seattle and, boy, we had a wonderful time! In fact, we had so much fun, it would have taken me forever to recap the whole thing, so I decided to just share some highlights. Here we go! Feeling like we had our act together traveling with a toddler – Remember when I blogged about traveling with an infant (here and here)? Well, we learned a few things, so, this time, we streamlined…

Hi, friends! When we visited Vermont earlier this month, we stayed at the The Comfort Inn & Suites(R) hotel in South Burlington. We had a wonderful time exploring the city, but what we loved most about our trip was spending time with our friends who live nearby. We typically stay in touch via social media and text messages, so it was really nice connecting with them in person. Our little family arrived in Burlington on Friday evening. We were warmly welcomed by…

I started my day with an iced latte and muffin from Caffe Ladro, which is one of my favorite coffee places ever. I couldn’t leave Seattle without getting it at least once! My flight home is delayed 3 hours. Whomp whomp. So”¦ I went shopping at the airport to kill some time. I bought a dog finger puppet book for Quinn as well as a construction plate + utensils for my nephew’s birthday. I also bought Mal…

This post is sponsored by Blue Diamond Almonds. Since I’ve traveled so much lately, I wanted to share some of the foods I like to bring with me on long flights. I don’t know about you, but there’s something about long days of travel that make me want to eat and eat and eat some more. For me, it has a lot to do with boredom snacking (i.e. sitting on a plane for hours) and being surrounded by…

Good morning and greetings from Logan International Airport! Quinn and I woke up bright and early this morning. We played and then ate breakfast. For me, it was an English muffin with Teddie peanut butter and banana slices on top. After that, I said goodbye to the little peanut (Mal dropped him off at daycare) and then headed into Boston to catch my flight. I whizzed through security and then popped into Peet’s for a…

Our babymoon in Savannah was absolutely wonderful. Truthfully, it was probably one of the laziest and most laid-back vacations Mal and I have ever taken together, but it was exactly what we wanted. Since I wasn’t in blogging/work mode, I didn’t document every little thing we did, but I still wanted to share my experience with you guys, so this post highlights some of my favorite experiences from our trip. I hope you enjoy reading…

I traveled a lot last year. I visited Hawaii, drove all over Ireland, enjoyed a fitness-inspired vacation in Mexico, plus many more trips. It was definitely an amazing and adventurous year! Obviously, I love to travel, but I don’t always love what traveling does to me. Long days with limited nutritious food options, dehydration, and lack of sleep are just some of the not-so-fun parts of traveling, which can easily derail my normal lifestyle, but…
