Peanut Butter Cup Mousse

This recipe is a HUGE hit in my house. I kept meaning to share but forgot over and over - probably because I'm too busy licking a spoon. It turns out that, if you mix peanut butter and Greek yogurt, this wonderfully fluffy "mousse" is created! Add in a little cocoa powder, a splash of [...]


Fun Stuff {Minus a Cold}

Good morning!  It was an early one in the Boyle household (but, then again, it usually is!). It’s so weird to see Claire standing all the time now… Or zombie-style walking towards me (know what I mean? That early baby walk always reminds me of a zombie). Speaking of Claire, do you like our pumpkin?  [...]


3 Things About This Weekend

Three fun things about this weekend:   #1 - I got through half of this week's Book a Week.  I am reading about The Five Love Languages for Children. If you're never heard of the love languages, check out their website. The love languages (how you express and receive love) are: physical touch, quality time, [...]


Grain-Free Apple Crisp

Remember when we went apple picking with our friends? Well, we ended up with a ton of apples - of course!  And after eating a few whole, I knew that I needed to get creative in the kitchen before they all went off.  I wanted a yummy snack with only a few ingredients - something [...]


This post is sponsored by Gallery Direct. So a few months ago, I saw a post on Kath Eats about Gallery Direct, which makes beautiful canvas prints right from your photos.  I immediately hopped on over to the site to order a ‘test’ print of Claire. You see, I had been desperately wanting to transform [...]


The post title says it all! This morning, the Husband and I searched for TWO HOURS (I am not exaggerating) for his car keys.  I had them last, but we’re pretty sure a kiddo picked them up and hide them… somewhere?  Hopefully not down that AC vent, which is where I was convinced they were [...]


Sunny Sunday

Did you have an awesome weekend?  Ours was busy but great. We actually spent a lot of time just hanging out in our backyard.  A chill is definitely in the air – you can tell that winter is coming!  I felt like we were all trying to soak up the last bits of sun and [...]


Less is More

I made it to boot camp!  I made it to boot camp! I am trying to get back into the swing of things, fitness-wise, but have been balancing a desire to sweat more with a need to calm my schedule down and workout intuitively - not just because a training plan says I have to. [...]


Apple Picking

Yesterday, I had a totally new experience – I went apple picking! We went with four other families – a grand total of 13 people – to Skytop Orchards, which boasts over a dozen varieties of apples and is a huge tourist attraction in the area. We got there just as the leaves are beginning [...]


Oh, I am so excited about this post and giveaway.  My absolute favorite leggings are from White Plum – I have waxed poetic about them numerous times.  Seriously, they are so soft, cozy, and comfortable – and CUTE.  So many adorable styles. The solid color fleece-lined ones are an excellent choice for Fall/Winter.  They are [...]


Tuesday Mornings

After two years of Erin Condren planners, I have switched to a $8 one.  Even thought it’s only October 6, I keep needing to flip into 2016 and write down info – my old planner stopped at December 31.  I kept on meaning to order another super cute Erin one (I love the covers), but [...]


Hi, Friends!

How was your weekend? Did you do anything fun? On Saturday afternoon, the Husband and I attended our friend Isaac’s birthday party at the 5-star Ballantyne Resort. We hung out with friends, sat in the hot tubs, relaxed in the steam rooms, and drank mimosas.  I left the spa feeling very adult, peaceful, and calm, [...]


I’m making a real effort to get back on track in all areas of my life.  Healthy eating – CHECK.  Sleep – CHECK.  Fitness – CHECK.  Catching up on Fear the Walking Dead – CHECK (and AHHH! So good).  And last, but not least, Book a Week!  When I was about 15 books into my [...]
