    i love cocktails

    This post is sponsored by Blue Diamond. Oh, happy hour. It’s no doubt one of my favorite times of day.

    The Hauperts had quite a busy weekend! From Friday afternoon until Sunday evening, we were go-go-go and it was kind of awesome, especially since the beginning of the summer was so low-key for us. I’m glad that things are getting back to (a new) normal and we have a social life again. And it seems like Q enjoyed […]
