GAH!!! Look what’s happening in Massachusetts right now: MORE SNOW… and a whole heck of a lot of it! The circled area below is where we live and, hello, we could get more than 2 feet of snow! WHERE is spring!?! Stay safe, everyone! The pretty snow scene below was taken at 7:00 AM before the storm really started. Rumor has it that it’ll go well into the night! Oy. Quinn and I were awake…

Hey, friends! Happy Monday! Catching up after the weekend? The Breakfast Bake We’re Totally Obsessed With – I share our current favorite breakfast recipe. Early Bird Toddler Dinner at Not Your Average Joe’s – I’m sure the parents can definitely relate to this one! Ok, now that we’re all caught up, here are some photos from our weekend via iPhone. Enjoy!! Playing with Dada at CrossFit – Mal had a snow day on Friday, so he…

Today’s the day! My winter half marathon is finally here! And by the time you read this blog post, I will have crossed the finish line after running 13.1 (chilly) miles. I’ll share my recap later this week! Wish me luck! WEEK 7 Sunday: 10 miles Monday: KFIT 28:49 Rx (my abs were sore for dayssssss!) Tuesday: Off Wednesday: CrossFit Used #95 for Squat Clean Thruster + worked my way up to #125 X 3…

So, our heat went out again last night. We had our furnace serviced just a few weeks ago because of the same issue, but, unfortunately, it went out again. *sigh* (Is it Spring yet? Oh, yea, it is. Is it summer yet? Jeez, Louise. I am so done with this winter-like weather.) I woke up in the middle of the night because I was cold, so I went to turn up the heat. (Mal sometimes turns it…

It’s the second day of Spring and it snowed this morning. I am so over it. The pug is too. Doesn’t his expression just say it all. Over it. Despite the snow, I still had a run planned with my friend Marisa. Pre-run eats: Sweet potato oatmeal with walnuts, pumpkin seeds, chia seeds, and apple butter. We waited until mid-morning to start our run with hopes that the snow would stop, but it never did. I wasn’t…

Guys, it’s snow madness over here! The governor declared a state of emergency and the National Guard was here in our town helping with snow removal yesterday. The snow banks are so high and parking lots are a total mess. There’s just nowhere to put it! And, not surprisingly, the schools in the area are worried about a number of safety issues related to the snow (i.e. kids waiting for the bus in the street since…

Good morning! We had another snow day and Mal was home from school yesterday, so I thought it would be fun to give you guys a little peak into our day. Here’s another edition of A New Day In The Life! 5:25 AM: I hear Quinn on the baby monitor. He’s on and off crying. Maybe he’ll go back to sleep? Mal let me sleep in until 8:00 AM (!!!!!) on Sunday morning, so it’s definitely…

Good morning! Happy Hump Day! First things first! Some exciting news: As I prepare to run the Boston Marathon, I’m raising money for Girls on the Run of Greater Boston. I know the strength, confidence, and FUN that can come from running, so I am thrilled to support such an amazing organization. I hope you consider making a donation! Ok, so there’s a lot of snow outside. And, honestly, there’s just nowhere to run. And it was really…

Hi, friends! We’re getting slammed with snow once again. It started late last night and is rumored to continue into the evening tonight. Boo. Snow. Is it spring yet? Mal had another snow day today, so he kindly drove me to the T this morning. (I’m a freak about driving in the snow and avoid it at all costs, so I was super thankful.) The reason for my early T adventure: I needed to go into…

Gooooooood morning and happppppppy Friday! What a week. It was kind of a weird one with the blizzard and having Mal home for two days in a row. It seemed like a weekend, but now the weekend is here again. Whoa. Obviously, I’m not complaining. I love spending time with my boys””all three of them! Yesterday morning, I hit the treadmill for my long run this week. I thought about running outside, but after I consulted…

Hello, hello! School was canceled once again for Mal today, so our little family enjoyed another snow day together. Some things we’ve done in the past 48 hours: Lounged around the house (in pajamas, of course), played in the snow, cooked some delicious food and ate lots of snacks, cuddled, napped, and enjoyed being snowed in. Here are some scenes from our snow days!

Hello and good morning! We are snowed in over here. Yes, we are. And, according to the weather folks, the Blizzard of 2015 is going to rage on well into the early morning tomorrow. Where we are on the South Shore of Massachusetts, we’re expected to get close to three feet. Holy cow! With the wind gusts, it’s pretty crazy out there right now. Poor Murphy did not want to go outside to go potty this…

Hi, guys! I loved reading all of your comments on my 10 Truths and a Lie post. But, jeez Louise, a lot of you guys think I have zero will-power! Haha! The statement about peanut M&Ms was actually not the lie. I really, truly have not touched the bag in days (mostly because I kind of forgot about them)! The lie was “I like my pillows like I like my pancakes: soft and fluffy,” which a few…

Good morning, friends! I did my first long run of my marathon training on Monday morning, so now I want to tell you guys all about it! Pre-run eats: Steel cut oats (made in the crockpot <— super easy), eggs, and cantaloupe. Weather: Ever since I committed to running this marathon, I’ve been obsessed with the weather. I’m not a fan of winter or being cold, so I often check the weather multiple times a day to plan my…

As much as I don’t want the cold weather to arrive here in New England, winter is inevitably on its way. The chilly temperatures mean that my morning stroller runs with Quinn and our post-dinner family walks will likely become fewer and far between, but, of course, I…
