Good morning and HAPPY MONDAY to you!
How was your weekend? Do anything fun and exciting? Our weekend was pretty low-key and especially snowy. Down here on the South Shore, we are getting hit hard. My mom actually just texted me: “Weymouth is winning in the snow totals.” Haha! We are smack in the middle of HOLY SNOW. Spring, where are you?!? Anyway, let’s talk about something besides the weather! How about some highlights from our weekend? Yes? YES!
Red Velvet Oreos. Whoa. I saw these at Hannaford, but I didn’t buy them. Now though I really regret this decision. I’ve heard they are quite incredible. Have you tried them? Do I need to go back and get them?
Mal went snowboarding with his buddies on Saturday, so he asked for some #quinnpics while he was away. I snapped this one at KFIT before working out. We have a similar stuffed octopus (Mr. Sock T. Pus) at home, and it’s one of Quinn’s favorite toys.
Saturday’s KFIT workout was a tough one. It was a partner workout, so we split the reps 50/50. Workout translation: 30 Hang Power Cleans (we used #75), 2 Turkish Get-Ups, 30 Burpees, 2 Turkish Get-ups, 30 Front Squats (#75) for 30 minutes. What doesn’t kill you only makes you stronger? Haha!
Quinn tried a couple of bites of carrot cake on Saturday afternoon and absolutely loved it. He’s definitely my kid.
Saturday night was really chill. After Quinn went to bed, I poured myself a glass of wine, turned on some Vanderpump Rules (so bad, but soooo good), folded laundry, and ate Cheez-Its.
Sunday morning, we woke up to more snow.
Quick and easy breakfast: Toasted English muffin with Teddie peanut butter and banana slices and an iced coffee. I’ve eaten this breakfast for the past 4 or 5 days. I’m definitely on a PB + banana kick lately.
After breakfast, I took Murphy for his morning walk. Despite my feelings about snow, it was actually quite nice.
Mal let me sleep until 8:00 AM (!!!!!), so he took a nap with the pug later in the morning.
The rest of the afternoon was spent hanging out around the house: playing, cleaning, snow-blowing/shoveling, ordering things online because there’s so much snow and we’re never leaving our house!
My father-in-law came for dinner last night. Papi and Quinn!
Dinner started with a Haupert specialty: Half of an avocado with a mustard-red wine vinaigrette. Mmm!
And then for our main course, we had Beef Bourguignon with French bread and wine. Oh my goodness, it was so delicious.

- Sunday: Beef Bourguignon
- Monday: Pasta with chicken sausage, broccoli, and Parmesan
- Tuesday: Chicken Ole <— planning to double the recipe and make it in the crockpot
- Wednesday: Leftovers
- Thursday: Tuna melts with sweet potato fries

Question of the Day
How often do you switch up your breakfasts? Are you currently on a breakfast kick? Or do you eat the same thing everyday?
