One Fun Weekend (+ a Minted.com Giveaway!)

This weekend was Henry’s birthday bonanza PLUS my sister-in-law’s birthday PLUS Father’s Day PLUS the beginning of the World Cup.  So you can imagine that it was a crazy few days in the Boyle household! Unfortunately, the only event that I managed to document was Henry’s party.  That’s because I spent most of the weekend [...]


What I Ate: Happy Day

I was driving to the grocery store and caught myself absolutely GRINNING from ear-to-ear.  I had such a happy day!  Nothing big happened; it was just a fun, relaxing, productive day. Toaster GF waffles with peanut butter, maple syrup, bananas and strawberries.   After breakfast, I went for a solo stroller run.  I don’t even [...]


Henry’s Second Birthday

Today is Henry’s second birthday. I simultaneously cannot comprehend and can totally believe that two years have passed since Henry entered our lives.  It’s been such a wild, fun ride.  Henry is an absolute joy to be around, and I thank my lucky stars every single night that I get to be his mother.    [...]


Egg Labels are So Confusing

… So I asked Daisy the Decoder to help us understand what the heck is going on! I met Daisy at BlogHer Food.  How did she earn her “The Decoder” nickname?  Well, she works for the ASPCA and is an expert on what those egg labels actually mean – I’m talking about “organic,” “free range,” [...]


Mashed Potato Omelet

GOOD MORNING! Can we talk about the breakfast that I had yesterday?  Because – dude.  DUDE. I had the idea for this omelet when I was in bed, trying desperately to shut off my brain and go to sleep. I’m in the midst of a little project to reset my natural sleep and wake hours [...]


This post is sponsored by Udi's. How are you guys doing? I'm in recovery mode from this weekend! My body isn't sore anymore, but man - am I tired. I would love to curl up on the couch and watch back-to-back episodes of Parenthood all day. But alas - that must wait until the kiddo's [...]


Heartbreak Hill Five and Dime Race Recap

Oh man – where to start?  This past weekend in Boston was so much fun, and the 5K and 10K were just the icing on top of the cake! Probably my favorite part of the weekend was seeing my buddies.  There was a big group of bloggers that Runner’s World invited to the race, and [...]


Inspiration City

You guys – I did it!  I finished the Runner’s World Heartbreak Hill Five and Dime.  That means that I completed the 5K and the 10K – back to back.  9.3 loooong miles, including a climb up the famous Heartbreak Hill! I attended the race as a Runner’s World blog ambassador, and I had originally [...]


An Interview with Mykal

I have always said that one of my favorite things about blogging is the chance to hear from people that I would otherwise never meet. I’ve learned so much and greatly expanded my worldview thanks to blogs. It’s on that note that I present this guest post from my new friend Mykal. Henry and I [...]


This post is sponsored by Sabre. The Rape, Abuse, and Incest National Network (RAINN) is our country’s largest and most active organization fighting sexual violence.  I am really excited about this post not only because it’s full of some important and useful information, but also because there’s a great potential for us to raise money [...]


What I Ate: My New Obsession

I kicked the morning off with this delicious green juice – I haven’t been really into juicing lately, but I was craving this!  It was good. And when everyone else woke up, I had the rest of my breakfast – eggs, spinach, and toast.  I am a total frozen spinach convert.  That stuff is amazing [...]


First Trimester Recap

First of all… Thank you all so much for the well-wishes.  It is so appreciated.  In particular, I really loved the comments from people who have been reading since before K and I got married – it’s so lovely that you’ve followed my blog and my family for so long.   Obligatory mirror selfies shall [...]


I’m baking someone sweet! We are so excited to announce that I’m pregnant!   And Henry is super pumped to have a sibling (especially if there is cake involved…).  In all seriousness, we are confident that he’ll truly enjoy having a baby brother or sister. Henry will be a great big brother. Kristien and I [...]
