• My Favorite Photos from the Weekend

    July 21, 2014

    Hi, friends! Happy Monday! I hope you had a fabulous weekend. Here are some photos from mine!

    photo 2 (2) (800x800)

    On Saturday, Q visited CrossFit for the first time (he loved it, obviously) and then we had some friends over for a little get-together. The food spread was especially delicious!

    Saturday evening involved Funfetti cake and episodes of Big Brother. Let me tell you, it was a happening night at the Haupert household!

    On Sunday morning, Mal made us a delicious breakfast: eggs, hash browns, and fresh berries. Yum!

    Delicious new snack: Nikki’s Coconut Butter + Justin’s almond butter = HOLY YUM! Try it.

    We spent Sunday afternoon at Funny Farm (aka my in-law’s house).

    photo 4 (1) (800x800)

    Some of Mal’s family was visiting from France, so we spent a few hours with them catching up… and eating lots of chocolate chip cookies. Ok, it was more me than them, but still… cookies were a big part of my afternoon.

    And my favorite photo from the weekend:

    How funny is Q’s arm?! Mal said it looks like he needs a pipe and a red robe. Haha!

    Q’s onsie is so cute ! The best part of my weekend was taking time to relax. It’s been a busy summer so I loved sleeping in, going on bike rides and reading on the porch.

    The only thing better than boxed Funfetti cake = from-scratch Funfetti cake. I made this recipe once, and it was delicious! http://www.browneyedbaker.com/2014/03/06/homemade-funfetti-cupcakes-from-scratch/

    @mary @ minutes per mile:

    yum! thanks for sharing! I can live with box cake mixes, but I can not stomach the frosting pre-made frosting. I am a real butter cream kind of girl.


    Katie @ happygokatie July 21, 2014 at 7:23 am

    That picture of you and Q is so precious – what a keepsake 🙂 It is true that no celebration is quite as happenin’ without some funfetti. It’s definitely the cool kid of the cupcake world. I’m just starting to become obsessed with the variety of Justin’s flavors, so thanks for introducing me to Nikki’s also. Always looking for ways to incorporate more nut butter into my diet :p

    Glad you had a nice weekend, Haupert family!


    Becky @ Olives n Wine July 21, 2014 at 7:37 am

    It looks like you three had a great weekend! And if my husband had family that lived in France, I’d be begging for a trip over there 🙂 I hope your Monday is off to a great start!


    Tina July 21, 2014 at 7:40 am

    Next summer with Q for sure! We haven’t been back in 8 years!


    Linz @ Itz Linz July 21, 2014 at 7:38 am

    ummm funfetti anything is amazing!!!


    Tricia July 21, 2014 at 7:44 am

    That last picture of you and Q is such a good pic. You look so happy!


    Ashlee July 21, 2014 at 7:48 am

    We celebrated our little man’s first birthday yesterday and had a BBQ with just family. It went really well! My man and I also hit 10 years yesterday too but we’re celebrating this coming weekend so little man could have his day (not that he’d remember).

    Baby pimp arms are the best!


    Anele @ Success Along the Weigh July 21, 2014 at 8:04 am

    That first pic is TOO adorable! Looks like a fun weekend!

    The best part of my weekend was getting on a bike after 20 years. It really is “just like riding a bike!” 🙂


    Dotty July 21, 2014 at 8:12 am

    Those cookies look amazing! What a fun weekend! Funfetti is is a go to at our house anytime we need to make a quick cake or cupcakes. This weekend was smoking boston butts and grilling chickens. Lots of fun time with our families and friends!


    Julie @ Running in a Skirt July 21, 2014 at 8:17 am

    Best part of my weekend was Saturday movie night with frozen pizza and red wine! haha- it’s the simple things!
    Love that picture of Q- he looks like a ham. 🙂


    Kelly July 21, 2014 at 8:28 am

    The only thing better than funfetti cake is funfetti frosting …mainlined.


    Megan @ The Skinny-Life July 21, 2014 at 8:38 am

    That picture of you & Q is so adorable! He’s showing off his guns like you! I can’t believe how big he is already.


    Britt@MyOwnBalance July 21, 2014 at 9:30 am

    Q is adorable! What a fun weekend. The best part of mine was spending some time in Boston Common and going to Fenway. I always love coming back to Boston!


    Ashley @ Coffee Cake and Cardio July 21, 2014 at 9:31 am

    Q is just too adorable!! You look awesome Tina.


    Lindsay @ Lindsay's List July 21, 2014 at 9:32 am

    bah! i’ve got to meet this kid in person somehow.


    Katie @ Peace Love & Oats July 21, 2014 at 9:34 am

    we were obsessed with funfetti in college, especially when my little (sorority sister) discovered how to turn it into cookies!


    Lauren July 21, 2014 at 9:37 am

    The picture of you and your son is just adorable 🙂


    Shannon July 21, 2014 at 9:45 am

    I have the same love for funfetti cake! And, I am also obsessive about the “right” funfetti icing, gotta have the rainbow chips 🙂


    Julia July 21, 2014 at 9:46 am

    Your baby is so adorable! 🙂

    The best part of my weekends as running the Rock and Roll Half Marathon in Chicago!

    There is a bakery in Chicago that makes Funfetti cupcakes with the MOST amazing frosting I have ever had!


    Nicole July 21, 2014 at 9:49 am

    You arms look amazing! The power of CrossFit!! 🙂


    Ashley @ Saving Money in your Twenties July 21, 2014 at 9:52 am

    Funfetti cake is always a good choice! The best part of my weekend was having my parents visit and taking them to niagara falls! So fun!


    Jaclyn @ BumpSweat July 21, 2014 at 9:54 am

    We had so many good things this weekend… hiking, brunch painting the nursery, and game-night with friends, but the best part was probably this delicious peanut-butter & chocolate cupcake a friend surprised me with. So good! And so sweet of her 🙂


    Shel@PeachyPalate July 21, 2014 at 9:55 am

    Such a cute pic! Oh those burgers look awesome, did you make em?


    Audrey @ In Shape Cupcake July 21, 2014 at 10:01 am

    Funfetti cake is always the best choice! It’s so goooood! Love Q’s little arm, gosh, way too adorable.
    Best part of my weekend was dominating my Run-Bike-Circuit workout. So hard to run right after you’re done biking. Sheeshhh


    Rachel @ Blonde with a Chanse July 21, 2014 at 10:23 am

    I love the picture of your and Q, so precious! Your pictures are so yummy, I think I am going to go and make some hash browns right now actually 😉 My favorite part of the weekend was helping my mom run our little booth at the farmers market, and going to the temple with my husband 🙂 Aren’t weekends the best?!


    Jenny July 21, 2014 at 10:25 am

    Such a handsome boy! And the biggest eyes!! Look out – he’s going to be a heartbreaker!


    Leslie @ Life Begins @ 30? July 21, 2014 at 10:46 am

    Funfetti cake might be my fave of all time!! The best part of my weekend was checking out some local food trucks with the fiance. We had lots of time to talk and hang out while trying some great food.


    Hillary | Nutrition Nut on the Run July 21, 2014 at 11:06 am

    I love seeing photos of Q! 🙂


    Hannah @ CleanEatingVeggieGirl July 21, 2014 at 11:25 am

    I love a man who can cook a good breakfast! I love making lunches/dinners, but I have yet to perfect the perfect fried egg and crispy golden hashbrowns… my boyfriend, on the other hand, has! I always ask him to make me breakfast whenever we are together 🙂


    Simi @ The Micro Harvest July 21, 2014 at 11:30 am

    The photo of you and Q is so perfect!!! You guys look so happy and wonderful!


    Nicole July 21, 2014 at 11:44 am

    A pipe, a red robe….and a MONICLE! He’s such a cutie pie!


    Tina July 21, 2014 at 11:45 am

    Haha! Yes!!


    Hilary July 21, 2014 at 12:30 pm

    That breakfast plate I have been eating the exact same thing for the past two weeks haha I love eggs, and hashbrowns and with it being fruit season you totally can’t pass it up!


    Ashley @ A Lady Goes West July 21, 2014 at 12:38 pm

    I’ve always loved the ease of the funfetti cake. My weekend as great, especially because I finally had a Sunday off of training clients and teaching group fitness classes. I enjoyed a nice dinner out on Saturday with my husband and a nice lunch out on Sunday. It was a relaxing one. Cute pictures!


    gracekelle at leangirlsclub July 21, 2014 at 12:57 pm

    My friends and i were just talking about how funfetti is the best boxed cake ever. We couldn’t say why, besides the fact that it’s fun and colorful. Boxed cake goes against almost everything I believe in when it comes to food and eating whole, but funfetti is worth it!

    Best part of my weekend: yoga in the park. It was a great way to recharge after a long week and prepare for the week ahead. Glad you had a great weekend!


    Amelia July 21, 2014 at 1:15 pm

    Best part of my weekend – GF Texas sheet cake. Wouldn’t have known it was gluten-free because there’s enough sugar in the icing to make up for any cake taste deficits! The funfetti is fun and good but those chocolate chip cookies look so good!

    You and Q are just the cutest! And nice arms – both of you! 😉


    Jennifer July 21, 2014 at 2:21 pm

    Oh, what sweet pictures! I would love to see more of Q and Murphy together.


    Marcia July 21, 2014 at 3:57 pm

    1) that first photo of the baby — MELT!

    I must try the coconut butter, YUM!

    Oh, and my wild night (Friday) was a trip to Target and Dairy Queen blizzard 🙂


    Leslie July 21, 2014 at 5:30 pm

    Yay! I sent you an email.. Thank you!


    Emily July 21, 2014 at 8:14 pm

    Coconut butter! I just bought some in single-serving packets, I can’t believe I’ve gone so long without it.


    Lisa @ Exercise eat repeat July 22, 2014 at 3:56 am

    That picture of Q chilling on your chest is so cute, it says to me ‘yeah i’m just chillin with my mum’. Gorgeous picture of both of you.


    Livi @ Eat, Pray, Work It Out July 22, 2014 at 10:19 am

    haha Q getting into cross fit already! I love it!
