Catch up!

I can’t even tell you how many times I’ve sat down to write a blog post in the past month…and then Olivia wakes up. In the spirit of being honest I have to tell you the past 2 weeks have been EXTREMELY trying for all of us. Olivia is getting her top molars and canine teeth and is basically miserable. She also has a cold on top of that (I guess from teething). I feel awful for her because it’s so obvious she’s in pain.

Obviously, not much is getting done around here…unless I can do it with her attached to me. We’re managing, but I’m wiped by the time Danny gets home at 5.



This past weekend Danny and I went to Providence College to share some Blissful Eats granola with the campus. There was a Friar 5k that our friends helped organize. We were invited to be a vendor through one of my interns over the summer. It was SO much fun and it was a gorgeous day for it! It was so great to be able to meet students, other alumni, staff and anyone else that was there. We had a great response to our granola. I even got to meet a reader Emily (hi!) and got to see a bunch of friends too. Perfect day…that I NEEDED. Olivia had a blast with her grandparents while we went for the day.


We also had the pleasure of meeting another awesome company, Nuts N’More. They have amazing nut butters that are fortified with organic flax and whey protein. They gave me a jar of their amazing Peanut Butter Pumpkin Spice and I’m in LOVE. I’m going to see if they’ll do a giveaway because I KNOW you will love it.


Today we’re going to a little Halloween parade at my sister’s work in the city. Hopefully Liv enjoys it and it isn’t just torture for her.

I’ve been trying to get my workouts in before Olivia wakes up. It works out most of the time, if it doesn’t I just finish later. Huge part of being a parent —> being flexible.

Just wanted to catch you up with what’s been going on over here. And here’s a cute baby picture to show you she’s not miserable 100% of the time..


Share something that’s been going on with you lately! Anyone else having a rough week?

I am prepping for Marathon #2 this weekend. Feeling slightly panicked! But also ready to go!
