Saturday was “recessed lighting day” at the Haupert household! 🙂 We found the best electrician on the South Shore of Massachusetts! After getting recessed lighting (and new counters) in our kitchen, Mal and I talked about getting recessed lightening throughout the rest of our house for months and months, but never actually did it. Our friend Matty is an (awesome) electrician and has wired practically half of the South Shore, so we finally got our…

Woohoo! It’s done! It’s done! It’s donnnneeeee! Remember how I mentioned that Mal and I “supposedly” weren’t buying each other presents for our birthdays, Mother’s/Father’s Day, and wedding anniversary because we were spending a lot of money on an upcoming home improvement project? Well, it’s finally done, and it was worth every penny. We couldn’t be more thrilled with the end result! And, of course, a project with all sorts of awesome construction equipment was…

Good morning! Happy Valentine’s Day! 🙂 It’s time for another edition of Monday In Meals where I share what I ate throughout the day. Yesterday was kind of an interesting day of eating because we had quite a few leftovers/foods on their last legs that needed to be used up (roasted sweet potatoes, kale, Bang Bang Buffalo Cauliflower, guacamole, grape tomatoes). I absolutely hate seeing food go to waste, so I did my best to incorporate…

This post is brought to you by Merry Maids. As always, thank you so much for supporting CNC! This time of year, many of us are expecting guests. Maybe they’re staying for a few nights or just guests at a party you’re hosting. No matter the occasion, it’s important that your home is warm and welcoming. But, of course, as crazy as the holiday season can be, it’s not always easy to go the extra mile and…

Alternate title: An Early Christmas Present  Alternate title #2: My Husband Is A Bad Liar  About a week ago, I received an event invite on the calendar that I share with Mal. It said: “Tina gets out of the house while Christmas elves put together her present.” Hmm… very interesting. I accepted the invite, but, of course, I wondered what the heck Mal was planning. And as soon as he got home, I asked him about the…

Happy Thanksgiving Eve, friends! Our friends gave us a Gratitude Jar at the beginning of 2016 as a way to remember the little things we are thankful for throughout the year. I figured the eve of Thanksgiving would be the perfect time to share what we’ve accumulated throughout the year. FYI: Some didn’t include dates on them, so I just listed them at the bottom of the list. 1/8: Podcasts 1/8: A job that gives me time…

I’m so excited to show you guys the big reveal! A huge THANK YOU to our friends at Wayfair for the opportunity! As you can see from the photos below, Quinn’s playroom has come a lonnggggg way in recent weeks! Some of my most favorite pieces…

Good morning! I am totally obsessed with our new bedding from Crane & Canopy. The company recently reached out to me about reviewing some of their products, and I fell in love immediately. They’re so chic and pretty! Crane & Canopy offers a full collection of luxury bedding, ranging in size and style, crafted from premium materials, and all reasonably priced. Crane & Canopy cuts out the middleman by going direct and using the world’s best linen factories…

Guys, this world map puzzle totally deserves its own post. We had so much fun putting it together! One of my blog readers works for a website called foamtiles.com that makes all sorts of fun play mats, including the world map mentioned above, and she offered to send Quinn one for his playroom. Their mat are super cool and a perfect addition for any kid’s playroom, so we happily accepted. Quinn was so excited when I…

This post is sponsored by The Bouqs. As always, thank you for the support! We’re slowly but surely getting settled in to our new house. We still have boxes to unpack and furniture to buy, but our home is finally at the point where it feels homey. Before we moved, our lives were packed away in boxes and everything just felt so unsettled. Now, I finally feel like things are coming together and our new house…

Heyyyyy! How’s your week going so far? Our little family has been quite busy with plenty of unpacking, organizing, and shopping. We took a trip to IKEA yesterday and it felt like we bought one of everything there. We also bought a new couch at the first place we looked, which we said we would never do again. Mal and I even reminded each other of this before we entered the store, but, hey, now we have…

Moving from our old house was bittersweet. Man, we loved that house so much. We did a ton of work to it over the years to make it our own, which made it that much harder to say goodbye. I didn’t cry, but I was pretty close when we closed the front door, snapped a quick selfie, and left Pine Circle once and for all. That said, I wanted to share some of the things that I will miss…

Hi, friends! I just wanted to share the details of our recent home purchase and sale. It’s actually a fun story, so I thought you guys might enjoy it. Here goes! Back in March, Mal and I started talking about moving to a bigger house. Once Quinn (and all of his stuff) came along, our already tiny house felt even smaller. Plus, the loan interest rates were really low and we knew we wanted to move eventually, but…

Good morning and happy Monday! If you follow me on Instagram or Facebook, you might have already heard the big news: We bought a new house!! We closed on Friday (both on our old house and new house), so it’s been a crazy few days for us. We’re settling in nicely to our new house, and I’ll be sure to share all of the details soon, but, in the meantime, here are some scenes from…

This post is sponsored by Boxed. Even so, I think this post might surprise you (Boxed really surprised me), so please read on! I am so excited to tell you guys about Boxed! Are you ready?!? As you know, I’m all about saving money. And, as a new mom, I’m all about convenience when it comes to shopping.
