Hi, guys! Happy Monday to you! Did you have a nice weekend? Ours was pretty low-key. If you follow me on Instagram, you know that I hurt my back/hip about a week ago. I still have NO idea how I did it. I’m blaming a walking treadmill workout that I did the day before the pain started, but I’m sure it’s a cumulative injury – or maybe it’s all in my head! More on this…

Hi, friends! Happy Monday to you! What a weekend! There was so much to celebrate, including the Patriots Super Bowl win as well as Carrots ‘N’ Cake turning 11 years old. Eleven years, people!! Isn’t that nuts? I can’t believe I’ve shared my life online for that long. It’s been quite an amazing journey, and I thank my lucky stars daily for such an awesome job. Seriously, from the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU for…

Hi, guys! Happy Monday to you! 🙂 I hope you had a lovely weekend. Ours was really nice with a mix of friend and family time. Here’s a recap via superlatives! PROUDEST MAMA MOMENT: Quinn learning how to float on his back “like a sea otter.” It’s a skill that he’s been SO AFRAID to try, but he finally made it happen (with the help of his swim instructor at Goldfish). He was so excited and proud…

Hi, guys! I hope your week is off to a wonderful start! I feel like I haven’t recapped a weekend on the blog in ages now, so I wanted to start a new weekly series to share the highlights with you. I often share tidbits of our weekend on Instagram Stories, but just in case you’re “unplugged” and missed them over the weekend, I wanted to blog about what we’ve been up to. That said,…

Hi, guys! I’m a little behind on “live” blogging, but I wanted to share this post since I get questions ALL the time about how I count macros on the weekends. And, truthfully, I typically take breaks from tracking on Fridays and Saturdays (sometimes Sundays too), but I still “game plan” my food choices – just so I don’t go totally off the rails. Not that there’s anything wrong with letting loose every once in…

Hi, guys! Happy Hump Day! I know this blog post is a little delayed since I’m highlighting events from the weekend, but they were just too good to to share and remember in the future! That said, here we go! Friday On Friday afternoon, my college friend Matt came to visit. We planned to go to see Dave Matthew’s Band later that evening, so we hung out at our place until it was time for…

Good morning, friends! Happy Monday to you! As you guys probably remember, I love a good weekend High Low High blog post. They’re one of my favorite to write since they share both the high and low highlights from it. I always like to focus on the positive side of things, so there’s typically more highs than lows! 🙂 With that, here’s how our weekend and Father’s Day went. And, of course, I’d love to…

Hi, friends! Happy Sunday to you! It’s nap time over here, so I wanted to share a quick blog post about our morning since it was an especially great one with two new local favorites in the mix. We even took Murphy along for our adventures! 🙂 Can we talk about these two characters below? Ha! Our first stop was Redeye Coffee Roasters in Hingham. Mal and I got iced coffees and we split an…

Hi, guys! Happy Monday to you! I’m still smiling from the weekend! 🙂 It was, for sure, an awesome one, especially since Sunday turned into a bit of a “Sunday Funday” with some impromptu adult beverages while watching the CrossFit Regionals during nap time. I mean, hey, Mal and I already completed all of our household responsibilities for the weekend (i.e. groceries, laundry, cleaning), so we figured we might as well enjoy ourselves! 🙂 Additionally,…

Hi, friends! I hope you had a wonderful weekend! Ours was awesome all around! So much, in fact, I broke up my recap into two separate blog posts because I just had so much to say about our weekend. Shall we get to it? Yes? YES?! Ok, here we go with a typical yet awesome Saturday recap! Saturday morning started like a lot of them with a fun partner workout at CrossFit. Mal and I…

Hi, guys! I hope you had a lovely weekend! 🙂 Ours was really nice – lots of family time and plenty of FUN! We were busy, but not crazy-busy, which was the perfect balance. I hate it when we have TOO many plans, but I also don’t like wasting away the weekend doing nothing. I mean, you guys know me… I can’t sit still for too long, so some sort of adventure or activity is…

Good morning, friends! Happy Monday to you! As you probably remember, I love a good weekend High Low High blog post. They share both the high and low highlights from it. I always like to focus on the positive side of things, so there’s typically more highs than lows! 🙂 With that, here’s how our weekend went. And, of course, I’d love to hear about your weekend too, so feel free to share some highs and lows in the…

Happy Monday, friends! Quinn and I had quite the weekend together. Mal was away, so it was just the two of us and we ended up staying quite busy! Friday I picked up Quinn from school on Friday afternoon, and we headed straight to Target. The kid is obsessed – I mean, aren’t we all? He loves looking at the toys. And, this time, I let him get one – a new Transformer, and he…

Hi, guys! A very happy Monday to you! How was your weekend? Ours was low-key and included minimal plans, which, honestly, was the best type of weekend. The fall has been crazzzzy for our family – and with me off to Israel later this week, a quiet weekend was exactly what we needed. Here’s a recap! Friday I finally enjoyed my first Pumpkin Spice Latte of the season. I actually shared my order on Instagram…

Hey, hey! Happy Friday, friends! I’m so glad that the weekend is just about here! We’re celebrating Mal’s birthday this weekend, and I cannot wait. I love birthdays so much! Well, ok, I’m just meh about my own, but I love celebrating other people’s birthdays! 🙂 So, recently, I’m on the hunt for the perfect protein oatmeal combo that I can make in the microwave. I’m coming close to an awesome recipe, but I haven’t nailed it…
