Hey there! Happy Hump Day! WHERE has this week gone already? Holy cow, I can’t believe it’s already more than halfway through Wednesday. Monday and Tuesday were a total whirlwind with the boys off from school, so now I’m boogieing to get things done. (“Boogieing” is a word, right? It just looks super weird.) Yesterday morning, I ate the most delicious breakfast hash. It was made with roasted broccoli, Brussels sprouts, air fryer onions, chicken…

Hi friends! Happy Monday Tuesday! 🙂 It totally feels like a Monday today. The boys had yesterday off from school, so we did some typically Sunday errands and family adventures. I woke up today 100% thinking it was Monday. Woahhh. It’s actually a “Quinn and Mumma” day because he’s off again today. Quinn’s school closes for professional development days a few times a year and today is one of those days. I’m actually really looking…

Another Newport weekend is in the books, and it might just be one of my favorites yet! 🙂 It was our 11th year visiting and Quinn’s 7th (feel free to do the math on that one), and it’s still one of our favorite weekends of the entire year. It just never gets old, and I truly cherish the moments we spend together there as a family. That said, here’s a recap of our Newport weekend!…

Gahhhh! The Hauperts can’t catch a break lately! First Murphy with his neck and back issues… Me with a never-ending flare and healthcare frustrations… And then Quinn gets bit by a mosquito and his face swells up! The poor kid woke up with a swollen eye yesterday morning. He got stung by a mosquito over the weekend, and the spot on his forehead swelled up like crazy. I took him to the doctor yesterday morning…

Hi, friends! It’s been a busy week over here. Mal is back to school, and Quinn starts Kindergarten on TOMORROW. Quinn’s had all sorts of orientation-type activities leading up to the big day, including a playdate, open house where he met his teacher and saw his classroom, and a practice bus ride home. I love that the school really helps the kids prepare, but remember the days when our parents just threw us on the…

Hey guys! We recently spent the weekend in a tiny house, courtesy of Getaway, and I wanted to tell you all about our experience aka here’s a review of Getaway Boston (tiny house) + discount code! [adthrive-in-post-video-player video-id=”dagU5A2R” upload-date=”2019-09-01T11:34:52.000Z” name=”Getaway Boston (Tiny House) Review” description=”Getaway Boston (Tiny House) Review”] The nice people at Getaway offered us a weekend away in one of their tiny houses. Mal and I are kind of obsessed with tiny houses,…

A certain little someone is heading to Kindergarten in just a couple of weeks, and I just can’t believe our baby is off to school. I feel like he was just starting preschool. Mumma is definitely going to shed some tears on the first day of school! But, honestly, Quinn is SO EXCITED about his new school, I can’t help but be excited too! As part of our first day of school preparations, we needed…

Hi, guys! We had quite the fun time on Friday night… and it was totally impromptu! I didn’t feel like cooking, so we decided to take the whole family out to dinner at the Hingham Shipyard. We took Murphy to dinner at Trident last year and had such a great time together, we decided to do it again. It was basically a dog-friendly Friday night on the South Shore. Woohoo! Trident has an outdoor patio…

I just wanted to jump on here and tell you about our trip to Stowe, Vermont!  We stayed at the Lodge at Spruce Peak (formerly Stowe Mountain Lodge). It’s an amazing place, and we’ve actually vacationed at the lodge during the last three summers. The PR person there is wonderful, and we’ve been friends for a while now, so when she invited our family for another visit, of course, we said yes! With that here’s a…

Hi, friends! First things first: I slept 10 hours… and I’m still tired. How does that happen!? Oy. More on this in a minute! So, I’m blogging from bed this evening. I put Quinn to bed and then just didn’t feel like watching TV, so I grabbed my laptop and started working on this recap from the day. I’m hoping to bring back more “day in the life” content after polling followers on Instagram. I’d…

It’s time for another “day in the life” via timestamps! I hope you guys enjoy these blog posts because I think they’re really fun to write, and it’s a nice way to remember our “regular” days as a family. Let me know what you guys think! 7:15 AM: Breakfast in the living room with Quinn (and Murphy). On the menu: Banana oats mixed with Nuzest smooth vanilla protein powder, cinnamon, and almond butter. Delish! To…

I can’t wait to share this review of Club Med in Sandpiper Bay, Florida! A little backstory first… We had originally planned a family vacation to the Punta Cana location of Club Med, but with all of the craziness happening there, we decided to switch our trip to Sandpiper Bay, Florida. Thankfully, Club Med was very accommodating and switched our lodging with just a small penalty. The airline, however, was not so accommodating. Whomp whomp….

We had quite the July 4 celebration!! 🙂 We headed down to our friends’ house in Centerville on Cape Cod the night before July 4th and stayed through most of the holiday the next day. As a way to recap, I wanted to switch things up and share some snapshots with timestamps from our mini vacation away. I hope you enjoy it! 🙂 July 3 We were up and at ’em on Wednesday morning with…

Since Quinn was born (5 years ago now!), both my real life and internet friends have asked me about the best sports bras for nursing moms. Of course, I realize sports bras aren’t the ideal undergarment for nursing a baby, but life happens and sometimes you need to feed your little one right before, during, or after a workout. (Hey, it’s just a tiny bit of sweat, right?) The best sports bras for nursing moms…
