We celebrated my mom’s 60th birthday over the weekend with a family lunch complete with good times, lots of laughs, and some seriously delicious cake. It was a great time, but, first, let’s talk about the decorations! The adorable birthday sign above is from Sunflower Paperie. Kate, the owner, also did the decorations for Quinn’s birthday party as well as my baby shower. She makes some super cute stuff! We also bought fresh flowers and mini pumpkins…

Most random blog post title ever? I think so! Haha! Yesterday, my “morning” started at 4:30 AM when I heard Quinn crying. Mal actually got up with him, so I could sleep a little longer. Well, I’m actually not sleeping very much/at all during this flare. I wake up every hour or so in pain because the cramping is so bad or to go to the bathroom or to change my clothes because I have sweat…

Hi, friends! How was your 4th of July weekend? Mine was really nice. Mal, Q, Murphy, and I spent it at my in-law’s house, so there was lots of quality family time and plenty of fun. And, of course, all sorts of delicious eats! The Hauperts do it right when it comes to food! FRIDAY My in-laws hosted a family get-together on Friday afternoon for the 4th. There was so much delicious food! My plate + an…

I celebrated my 34th birthday yesterday! The day ended up being pretty low-key, but it was exactly what I wanted. I started my day with a delicious glass of Marylou’s white chocolate chip iced coffee with iced coffee cubes and chocolate almond milk in the mix. This flavor combo = AMAZING. Mal, Q, and Murphy were all sound asleep when I woke up, so I snuck into my office to do some work. A couple of…

Hi, guys! How was your weekend? Mine was a lot of fun and actually pretty busy! On Saturday morning, Mal and I woke up bright and early to spectate the Kill Cliff East Coast Championships in downtown Boston. We picked up Kerrie and then headed into the city. #pugfeet On our way into the venue, we bumped into Rich Froning and Chris Spealler. Helllllllooo! Two of my favorite male athletes! What great timing! The event…

Good morning! Happy Hump Day! I spent yesterday afternoon hanging out with my nephew, Matthew. He’s so darn cute. I loved watching him squirm around, make funny faces, and do other adorable baby things. Long story short, I always smile when I see Matthew, and it inspired this blog post. I always smile when”¦ I see Murphy riding in the car with his head stuck out the window. I take my first sip of iced…

Feel free to play along in the comments section””I love learning new things about you guys! A. Attached or single? Attached. Married for 5 years. Together for almost 10 years. B. Best friend? Mal. C. Cake or pie? Cake. Duh. D. Day of choice?…

Hi, friends! I had a few hours to kill on my flight to Portland, so I decided to finish up this Fabulous Fitness Survey that I started the other day. I saw it on Julie‘s blog and thought it looked fun, and you know how I love surveys, so here goes! 1. What did you eat for breakfast? Butternut squash with cinnamon, sliced banana, and almond butter. Please see my previous post for a photo!…

Mal and I had two special occasions to celebrate yesterday: Mother’s Day and our friends’ engagement. Yesterday, we had Mal’s parents over for a Mother’s Day barbeque, but, unfortunately, it rained all afternoon, so we had our celebration indoors. While we caught up, we enjoyed some drinks and appetizers in our living room. The appetizers were courtesy of Trader Joe’s”¦ simple and delicious! While we chatted and simultaneously watched the Red Sox’s game, Murphy made…

Hi, friends! Happy Friday! I don’t know where today went. I guess time flies when you’re having fun, which means I’m just sitting down to my computer now to recap yesterday’s adventures. Working late on a Friday! Lunch I couple of hours after eating breakfast, I headed out to run some errands at the Derby Street Shoppes. I love this shopping plaza because so many of my favorite stores are there, and I can usually…

My sister’s baby shower was a huge success! It was a beautiful day, tons of family and friends were in attendance, and the mommy-to-be had a wonderful time. We couldn’t have asked for a better day! I can’t wait for baby Matthew to be here! Less than 2 months to go! Question of the Day What’s your favorite boy’s name? 

Does my post title remind anyone of the song “Short Skirt/Long Jacket” by Cake? [image source] Ok, then”¦ Workout After breakfast yesterday morning, I headed to CrossFit for a workout. I was super sore from doing “Barbara” the day before, but a friend was making her big return to 781 and I really wanted to welcome her back and, of course, get our WOD on together, so I sucked it up and went. Yesterday’s workout…

It’s my birthday! I’m 32 years old young today! I’ve always loved cake. I have to admit, 31 wasn’t my favorite year, especially compared to the year before. Thirty was a big year for me: I ran a marathon, bought a house, and wrote a book, so it’s not surprising that 31 had a tough time living up to it. Plus, a bunch of not-so-great things happened last year. But, what doesn’t kill you only…

Hi, guys! How’s your Monday evening going so far? I’m actually really tired tonight– much more than usual. 😐 It must be the Body Pump, which definitely kicked my bee-hind! I’m going to sleep like a baby tonight. Snack After the gym, I headed to Starbucks to do some writing. While there, I enjoyed a decaf nonfat sugar-free vanilla misto. How’s that for an order? I’m so high maintenance sometimes! 😉 Mmm! My high maintenance…
