Pregnancy Update: Week 39 | Baby #2

Happy early 4th of July! I took off last week to spend some quality time with Tommy and we 100% enjoyed it. Now that Dad has joined us in Cape Cod, I am of course the second choice but I am OK with that because it meant I got to sleep in today. I wanted […]

The Beach Baby Set Up – What To Bring With A Toddler

Last year, I shared a post on what to bring to the beach with a baby. Tommy was between 6 and 8 months last summer. He started crawling and could pull himself up on things. He ate sand non stop in addition to breast feeding. We didn’t worry about bringing him snacks to the beach […]

4th of July Weekend Workouts

It’s funny how my last post said Tommy was a one nap kind of guy… He was all smiles last Friday eating his first popsicle. Nick slept in Saturday while I got up early with Tommy. When he finally woke up at 9 am – I wish there was a way to capitalize a number – […]

When Your Kid Naps On The Go

This is the second post in my Mommy Mondays, I know it’s not Monday but it is the start of the work week! Read my first one here.  Well, that was the fastest summer that’s flown by. I know it’s not officially over, but LDW is pretty much it for us in New England with […]

Our Beach Vacation with the Baby

Last week, Nick took the week off from work and we took our first family vacation. While we were supposed to go to Nantucket, our transportation plans got goofed up and we ended up staying in the Cape at my mom’s place in Dennis. This probably led a more relaxing week, logistically. No ferry, less […]

Vacation Workouts

I came down to the Cape with Nick on June 30th and I still haven’t left! I’m currently staying at my mom’s. It’s been so nice having family around to help with Tommy and while we miss Nick who is working back in Boston during the week, he isn’t home during the day. Having another […]

What To Bring To The Beach For Your Baby

I grew up going to the beach in the summertime on Cape Cod. From personal experience, I know not all babies like the beach and was nervous Tommy might be one of them. I’m on Cape Cod for the week and am happy to report back that we in fact have a baby who loves […]

I Hope I Am As Lucky To Live To Be 90

Yesterday, we laid my maternal grandmother Eleanor, known as Ellie, to rest in Cape Cod. She turned 90 in May and we just saw her at big party my mom held in her honor. My cousin Kristy asked all of us cousins for photos and put together a beautiful 5 minute montage that captured my […]

When Is The Best Time To Workout

After a long weekend with perfect weather, it doesn’t feel like the end of summer has arrived. It is HOT here in Boston – 90F to be exact. I love summer but by September, I’m sick of the heat. At least we get to cool down at night. This weekend I was in Cape Cod […]

This isn’t one of those posts where I tell you not to eat something. In fact, it’s one of those posts where I recommend indulging. When you restrict yourself from eating things you know you love, many people have a tendency to binge on them when they finally allow themselves to enjoy it. I’ve been […]
