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…

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…

Mal and I were up and at ’em yesterday morning. We each wanted to squeeze in a quick workout before a day at Duxbury Beach. Unfortunately, our workouts weren’t quick enough because when we arrived at 7:45 AM, non-resident was at capacity. Whomp whomp. We were bummed, but we made the best of our drive to Duxbury by stopping at Coffee Shack (in Marshfield) on the way home. Butterscotch iced coffee? Yes, please! I was…

Hi, friends! Happy Friday to you! I can’t believe it’s already Friday. This week flew by – holy cow! Both Mal and Quinn were off this week, so we had adventures just about everyday – visiting friends and their new baby, cousin Matthew’s 6th birthday party, a Red Sox game, a block party at the Derby Street Shops, and the beach today. Let’s just say, I’m excited for a low-key weekend ahead. (There were quite…

In years past, I always wanted a big ol’ celebration for my birthday – either a party or a night out with my friends. And, sure, I had A LOT of fun, but as I get older, I prefer celebrating my birthday with just my boys. To celebrate #39, I enjoyed a low-key day, and it was exactly how I wanted to spend my birthday. (However, when I turn 40 next year, we are going…

Quinn had quite the birthday celebration this year. Holy cow, it was non-stop festivities! They started more than a week ago and continued through last weekend with a birthday party at Goldfish Swim School. His pool party was his “official” birthday celebration, so I guess the others were just… practice for the big day? 😉 Let’s just say, he’s one lucky boy! 🙂 Our birthday party at Goldfish Swim School was included in a recent…

Quinn was just too excited to sleep on Father’s Day, so we were up and at ’em and ready to make the day a special one for Mal. We had all sorts of presents for Dada, and while he slept, Quinn and I drove over to Whole Foods to pick up ingredients and iced coffee (of course) for a tasty Father’s Day breakfast. As soon as Mal woke up, we opened presents. Quinn was so…

Quinn and I had quite the fun afternoon picking strawberries at C.N. Smith Farm in East Bridgewater, Massachusetts. We picked apples there in the fall a number of times in the past, so we were excited to learn that there was also strawberry picking at C.N. Smith Farm. (The farm also has other pick-your-own fruit options!) Quinn and I had such a great afternoon together. It was a lot of fun, and I love that…

Hi, friends! I hope you had a nice weekend. Ours was busy, but fun with a lot of quality family time – my favorite type of weekends! 🙂 On Saturday, Quinn had soccer and then we went to CrossFit. It was a partner workout, so we got to work out with some friends, and it made me miss CrossFit so much. I swear, there’s nothing like it! I actually even DANCED during the workout because…

Yesterday was such a fun day for our little family, who, for the record, had some really great ideas for our Sunday afternoon. Mal had a random craving for a charcuteri board, and Quinn suggested a party, specifically a “party night.” We decided to combine their ideas for a “Euro Party Night” since stopping by our local Euro Mart was key to the evening. If you’re local, you definitely need to check out this place….

A special someone had an AWESOME Easter weekend! Quinn had the opportunity to participate in 4 (!!) different egg hunts and, my gosh, he had a blast. Mal and I also liked to see his “competitive” side come out. Haha! On Saturday, we attended a huge egg hunt that our town hosted at a local park. There must have been about 200 kids and, rumor has it, 5,000 plastic eggs with tiny toys inside. Quinn…

The holiday fun continues in the Haupert household! But, seriously, how is it already December 17?! It’s been a fun few weeks to say the least, and I really love that this tradition adds so much to our daily lives during the most wonderful time of year. Here’s the next recap of our 24 Days of Togetherness activities! DAY 10: Wear red and green. I forgot to snap photos of Mal and Quinn’s outfits, but they both played along…

Hi, guys! Another “Quinn and Mumma” day is in the books, and I have to admit it was one of my favorites to date! 🙂 It started like a lot of them with snuggles and TV on the couch followed by breakfast. This particular morning, Quinn requested oatmeal for breakfast. OATMEAL, people! Apparently, they eat it at his school, and he really likes it. Being the oatmeal fan that I am, I jumped at the…

Our 6th Annual Friendsgiving is in the books! And, my gosh, it was a fun time with friends. I’m so glad that we have this wonderful tradition with our hometown gang. We’ve known each other since we were kids, so I know it means a lot to all of us. And, of course, with our growing families it’s that much more special, especially now that our kids are becoming friends, too. It really is the…

Hi, friends! I can’t believe December is just around the corner… although, I’m more than ready for it! 🙂 I feel like December marks the “official” holiday season – at least with regard to our family’s traditions via “24 Days of Togetherness.” If you haven’t had a chance to download your PDF yet, be sure to print it out and cut it up today, so you’re ready for all of the holiday fun that starts…
