Hey there!

I'm Tina

Good morning, friends!

I heard a rumor you guys enjoy my What I’m Loving Lately posts, so I’m planning to make them more of a regular feature on CNC. That said, here’s another edition of What I’m Loving Lately!

Little Grazers – Totally love this site! It has so many great ideas and recipes for feeding your little one!

Little Grazers

Stitch Fix – I know I don’t write about Stitch Fix all that often, but I’m 5 for 5 on my last two fixes. I’m bringing a lot of the clothing with me to Seattle and Minneapolis, so I’ll be sure to snap some photos!


This scarf from Lululemon. A couple of the ladies at KFIT own it, and I have oogled over it for weeks now, so I finally bought it yesterday! Lovveeee it!

Paradice Cuff Ice Pack – An oldie, but goodie! The nice folks from Paradice sent me this cuff years ago. It’s been chilling (literally) in our freezer since then, but now that I’m running more and my knees are frequently sore, I use it a ton. I pull the cuff on right after my runs and then wear it when I go to bed. It’s actually pretty comfortable to sleep with.

What Your Wine Choice Says About Your Personality <— This was fun!

Mesh sock bags – I recently bought a 3-piece set of mesh bags to organize the socks in our house. Mal and I own ALL OF THE SAME athletic socks. Seriously. We both have a bunch of black Reebok CrossFit socks and then we both ordered blue + black Bombas socks (because we are dummies). Anyway, we mix up our socks all the time, so now we have two separate mesh bags (his is black, mine is white) to keep things organized. Quinn also has his own mesh bag, so his tiny socks don’t go missing in the laundry.


Crockpot Bolognese from Skinnytaste <— Definitely on my must-make list!

Also on my must-make list—> Microwave Breakfast Berry Crumble

Flying With An Infant Series from Newlyweds: North <– super helpful!

Question of the Day

What are you loving lately?



  1. I am not allowed to start Stitchfix. I just have declared it so because that is just asking for trouble! I am loving being home after a fantastic vacation, and I am LOVING Theo’s chocolate, which my husband, his aunt, and I took a factory tour of the other day and omg, they are amazing!

  2. With a bit of fear I read about traveling with an infant. I almost had to jump on a plane with my sixteen week old a few days back and I totally freaked. What I am loving is my babe sleeping through the night, date nights and spin class.

  3. The vinyasa scarf is so perfect! I used to wear mine like a vest when I worked at lululemon. Now I wish I still had a job where I could wear yoga pants and my scarf/vest every day! Haha!

  4. The wine article was funny! I’d like to think I’m a combination of all the reds haha 🙂 Are you a red or a white wine-o?

  5. This was a great round up! I’m loving the dancer from the Royal Ballet dancing to Hozier’s “Take Me To Church” … haunting, beautiful, sexy. Have you seen it?

  6. The video of the girl showing you the different ways to wear the scarf from the link is too cute! What are you coming to Minneapolis for??

  7. We safety pin our socks together at the top before putting them in the dirty clothes. A habit my dad go me into. It only takes a few seconds but saves a ton of time later!

  8. I keep meaning to get laundry bags for our socks and never get around to it. I love the idea of keeping everything separate!

    I am loving time at home with my little one. I am such a homebody and we have been travelling quite a bit lately. It’s nice to be home and back into our regular routine!

  9. Loving lately – raw egg in my smoothie. I know. i know. It sounds gross but it’s a great protein source makes my smoothies so creamy.

  10. I am loving my 60 second chocolate chip mug cookie. It has been causing problems. Good thing I am almost out of one of the ingredients so maybe that will calm me down (prob not).

    I am also loving teaching classes for the first time! I have been shadowing for a little over a month, but this week I was able to teach two classes on my own and am moving up in the world!

    Thanks for sharing; I always love reading what other people are liking lately.

  11. Hi Tina!
    What’s bringing you to Minneapolis? I have been reading your blog for years, and I was inspired to start my own blog because of yours. I’d love to meet up if possible!

  12. ThredUp, Love with Food and Nature Box, and Target Clearance!! I’ve also done some shopping at Crazy8 when they have their big sales to stock up for my girls for summer!! We also love these pouches to take food on the go with us!!


    We get these to pu ton top so the baby doesn’t squeeze the food out!


    And this pancake mix from Park City, UT!! http://www.kodiakcakes.com/mixes/

  13. Just an FYI, you shouldn’t leave an ice pack on for more than 30 minutes at a time as you can risk frostbite and/or stop blood flow to the area. My Mom recently started Physical Therapy for a shoulder injury and the therapist scolded her for falling asleep with her icepack on. 🙁

  14. How often do you get new clothing items from Stitch Fix? What do they usually cost per item? If you have a referral link, let me know because I may try it!

    1. I do a twice-monthly ‘fix’ from Stitch Fix. (It’s SO FUN!) The cost per item for most of my fixes is anywhere from $28 – $78, and you can select “cheaper the better” when you fill out your Stitch Fix profile if cost is a concern. I don’t like to spend a lot on clothing, especially if it’s trendy, so I selected this option, and I get a good mix of stuff at affordable prices! Hope this helps! 🙂
