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…

Hi, guys! I hope your week is off to a wonderful start! I feel like I haven’t recapped a weekend on the blog in ages now, so I wanted to start a new weekly series to share the highlights with you. I often share tidbits of our weekend on Instagram Stories, but just in case you’re “unplugged” and missed them over the weekend, I wanted to blog about what we’ve been up to. That said,…

Hi, guys! I hope you had a very HAPPY HALLOWEEN! Our was one for the books and SUCH A GREAT TIME! (Holy CAPS in that first line, but it really was an awesome time!) Quinn was on the fence about who he wanted to be for Halloween – either Catboy or Gekko, both from PJ Masks. He ultimately started the day as Catboy and wore his costume to school. The Catboy costume was quite a…

Happy Halloween, friends! The Hauperts are so excited for today! Quinn went to school dressed as Gekko (from PJ Masks), and we’re having friends over to our house tonight for a little pre-game party before heading out to trick-or-treat around the neighborhood. Mal and I are joining Quinn with the PJ Masks theme (yes, we’re totally that family), so we’ll be Catboy and Owlette. I seriously can’t wait for a fun-filled evening with family and…

Hi, friends! Another annual Newport weekend is in the books! It was our 10th year visiting (and Quinn’s 6th – feel free to do the math on that one), and it’s still one of our favorites (if not our FAVORITE) weekend of the entire year. We have so many wonderful memories from our trips to Newport and always make more there! 🙂 FRIDAY We arrived early Friday evening, got settled, and then Quinn and I…

Hi, friends! Happy Monday! 🙂 We had QUITE the epic fall family fun day yesterday at Sauchuk’s Corn Maze & Pumpkin Patch – like Sauchuk’s will absolutely become part of our annual activities from now on. It has SO MUCH to offer, and I can’t believe no one ever mentioned it to us before. In fact, we randomly Googled “corn mazes” last weekend and found Sauchuk’s in Plympton, which is less than 30 minutes from our…

Hi, guys! Happy Tuesday to you! On Saturday afternoon, our little family went apple picking at C.N. Smith Farm in East Bridgewater, Massachusetts and, as expected, we had quite the nice time. We visited for the first time last year, and we were pleasantly surprised by how much it had to offer. It’s definitely our go-to place for family fall fun now! 🙂 First up, of course, was apple picking. There were only a few…

Hi, guys! It’s nap time over here, so I wanted to pop in real quick and share a recap of our morning. Quinn is home with me today since I’m off to Des Moines on Friday, and his school kindly agreed to swap days. Quinn actually slept until 7:00 AM this morning, so by the time we got ourselves ready for the day and walked Murphy, we didn’t have much time for breakfast. I whipped…

A huge thank you to Stowe Mountain Lodge for hosting us during our stay. We had an absolutely amazing time, and we can’t recommend this resort enough as a family vacation destination!  Oh, boy, I don’t even know where to start with this recap. I almost made a video recap because I just have SO MUCH to say about our recent stay at Stowe Mountain Lodge, but, hopefully, I can share all of the awesome details in this…

Another Falmouth Road Race is in the books! Sunday’s race was my 6th, and I can confidently say, it’s still my favorite! 🙂 A HUGE thank you to Health Warrior for giving bibs to Mal and me – it was such a fun day! Race morning started bright and early at 5:01 AM. Mal and I had a babysitter coming to our house at 6:00 AM, so we were up and at ’em getting ready,…

Hi, guys! Happy Tuesday! It is HOT here… like really hot… like holy heat wave hot. I’m working from my home office right now, but I might need a change of scenery and air conditioning soon! This morning, I was up and at ’em working before my boys woke up – well, besides Murphy, who hops out of bed as soon as I am a wake because: food potential. The dog is always on top…

A summary of summary of what we packed for the beach (in 10 minutes) We got a late start today. Well, technically, I was up and at ’em getting work done before my boys woke up, but they slept in this morning. Not joking you, Quinn slept until 8:30 this morning. 8:30!!! People, this is the latest he’s slept in his whole life. We witnessed history in the making this morning! Haha! Anyway, we had…

Hi, guys! We had a fun day trip to Osterville on Cape Cod yesterday. Our friends Marisa and Jeff and their daughter rented a house for the week and invited us down to hang out, and it was definitely a good time! Before we hit the road, I fueled up with a tasty breakfast. It was a piece of Potato and Black Bean Enchilada Casserole (I still need to share the recipe with you guys!)…

Hi, guys! Mal and I had quite the fun afternoon together. Hooray for summer day dates! 🙂 The nice folks from Abby Park in East Milton Square (the same owners as Novara, which we LOVE) invited us for lunch, so we were more than happy to take them up on their offer! Back in the day, when Mal and I lived right near East Milton Square, we used to walk to Abby Park for their…

Last Sunday, my mom, sister, and I enjoyed a fun outing together – just the 3 of us. We headed up to Portsmouth, New Hampshire for lunch and a show. Now that my sister and I have little ones, it’s tough for all of us to get together like we used to, but we made it a priority this time. When I discovered that my cousin Andrea was going to be in The Who’s Tommy…
