Murphy had a great 10th birthday! I can’t believe our sweet pug is such an old man now. It happened so fast! I mean, look at his gray face. Oh my heart. Old pugs are my favorite. Murphy’s birthday celebration kicked off with a ride in the car, which, of course, is always one of his favorite adventures. He barked out the window and lost his mind every time I turned on the car blinker…

Hi, guys! Happy Monday to you! I’m still smiling from the weekend! 🙂 It was, for sure, an awesome one, especially since Sunday turned into a bit of a “Sunday Funday” with some impromptu adult beverages while watching the CrossFit Regionals during nap time. I mean, hey, Mal and I already completed all of our household responsibilities for the weekend (i.e. groceries, laundry, cleaning), so we figured we might as well enjoy ourselves! 🙂 Additionally,…

Hi, guys! Friday afternoon and evening were so incredibly fun! Seriously, it was probably the best of the summer so far! 🙂 After Quinn’s nap, we took Murphy to the park to stretch his pug legs and give the humans a little exercise of their own. Obviously, Murph Dog was pumped – just look at that face! We haven’t been to the park (Bare Cove) in awhile because dogs are now required to be on-leash. It’s…

Quinn and I had quite the busy day together. It was all fun stuff, but we were busy, busy, busy! After Quinn’s morning nap, we ran some errands and then took Murphy to the park, so we all could get a little exercise and enjoy the nice Spring weather. Related: We finally have leaves on the trees! It was a beautiful morning for a park adventure, so we walked for quite awhile. At one point, we…

Hello and happy Hump Day! How are things going where you are? Quinn and I just got back from a shopping adventure at Target. I know, we live an exciting life. Haha! But, seriously, now that we’re not snowed in anymore, Quinn and I have been getting out and about a lot more and having so much fun together. Here’s what we’ve been up to lately! A Craft Project It rained most of last week, so Quinn and I…

Goooooood morning and happy National Pizza Day! To help you celebrate the day, here are some of my very favorite pizza recipes: Sweet Potato Pizza Crust Toaster Oven Pizza for One Dandelion Pesto Pizza Buffalo Chicken Pizza Gluten-Free Grilled Pizza Almond Flax Pizza Crust Mal was home from school again yesterday, so we had another nice morning with our boys. Breakfast was egg sandwiches made with Light Creamy Swiss from The Laughing Cow, bacon, and…

Hello, hello! How’s your Wednesday going so far? We had a rocky morning here, but things have greatly improved! Early-morning breakfast: English muffin with peanut butter and banana + iced coffee. I love this breakfast because I can throw it together in just a few minutes. And, of course, it’s tasty and filing! After his first feeding of the day, Quinn got cranky, which, unfortunately, has become a not-so-fun morning pattern for us. He hates…

Hey, hey! Yesterday started bright and early at 4:30 AM once again. Mal offered to get up with Quinn since his alarm usually goes off at 5:15 AM for school, but I couldn’t fall back to sleep, so I got up and hung out. And Mal offered to make me breakfast, so, yea… food. Mal left for school. Quinn and I played. We sang. We read books. I watched the news. I drank iced coffee. I tried…

Hi, friends! So, this is actually the second time I am writing this blog post since the first one got eaten up by the WordPress app on my phone/it doesn’t agree with the server at Dreamhost. I don’t know what happened exactly, but I finished this post at 3:45 AM this morning and when I went to publish it this morning, it reverted to the old version. *Sigh* It was super annoying. Anyway… On Monday, I…

Hey, hey! Just wanted to share some photos from yesterday as well as a cool fundraiser that I am participating in this weekend and some delicious smoothie and juice recipes from my new book. Ok, here goes! 3:00 AM… Murphy is not a fan of early morning feedings, especially when he’s not the one being fed. Poor pug. His life is so hard. Pre-WOD eats: Toast with almond butter and banana with a side of baby…

Hi, friends! We had a nice little Sunday yesterday. It started with a trip to the dog park where I ran with Q and the jogging stroller for about 15 minutes and, man, it was tough””so much harder than I thought it would be! I definitely need to work on it! Haha! Mal also took a turn with the jogging stroller and ran for about 20 minutes. When he started off with Q, Murphy ran after them,…

The Hauperts had quite a busy weekend! From Friday afternoon until Sunday evening, we were go-go-go and it was kind of awesome, especially since the beginning of the summer was so low-key for us. I’m glad that things are getting back to (a new) normal and we have a social life again. And it seems like Q enjoyed getting out and about too! Friday afternoon, Q and I met Kerrie and Bentley (her Frenchton) for a baby-dog walk….

Hello, hello! Happy Friday, friends! Let’s get right to it with a recap of my eats and happenings from the day! (I’m publishing this post a little earlier than usual because I have a hot date with Mal, Q, and Murphy on our back porch with some apps and adult beverages””for the human adults, of course!) BREAKFAST Whole wheat toast with almond butter, banana, and Fage Greek yogurt After breakfast, I swung by Marylou’s to grab…

Mal, Q, Murphy, and I woke up bright and early, so we took advantage of the cool morning hours and went to the park together for the first time as a family. Mal and I stopped for iced coffees on the way (obviously) and then we walked with Q and Murph for about 45 minutes at the park. Murphy took a dip in the ocean and Q snoozed the entire time. It was such a…

Hi, guys! Here’s a quick recap of yesterday’s eats and activities and then I’ll tell ya what Mal and I did again. (Gah! What is wrong with us?!) Breakfast My morning started with a big bowl of banana oatmeal with dried cranberries, chia seeds, and a big scoop of peanut butter. Mashed banana in oatmeal is the best thing ever. It makes it so, so, so creamy. Just sayin’. Workout After breakfast, I headed to KFIT…
