At the beginning of the holiday season, a stranger told me that 4.5 years old is the BEST age for Christmas, and he was definitely right. I can’t even begin to explain just how much Quinn enjoyed the “Christmas holiday.” In fact, I’m still smiling just thinking about the wonderful memories we made together! Above, Quinn is sprinkling reindeer food on our lawn before heading out for our Christmas Eve festivities. Christmas Eve started at…

Hi, friends! Happy Labor Day to you! How was your long weekend? Ours was both nice and busy, which I guess was the perfect end to the summer. 🙂 Guys, our summer was crazy, and I feel like we didn’t stop moving for nearly 3 months. I’m not complaining—it was all fun stuff—but now I’m more than ready to get back into a routine. Mal is back to school tomorrow, Qman is going to daycare, and…

Hi, guys! So, Mal and I sort of celebrated 7 years of marriage yesterday. We didn’t have big plans because we just got back from Oregon and we have another vacation coming up in August, so we decided to keep things low-key this year. We did, however, agree to buy each other “traditional” wedding gifts just for the fun of it. Seven years is copper, so we planned to get each other something made from it. It was…

Helloooooo! Happy Monday! Did you have a nice weekend? I spent mine with Mal’s family at Funny Farm. The whole crew was home for the weekend and it was so nice to spend some quality time together. That said, here are some photos fotos from the weekend! Saturday morning: Tropical Coconut iced coffee from Gourmet Donuts + a big ol’ kiss for my favorite little boy and a pug forehead photobomb. Murphy. Saturday afternoon: Burgers and…

Hi, friends! Happy Monday! I hope you had a fabulous weekend. Here are some photos from mine! On Saturday, Q visited CrossFit for the first time (he loved it, obviously) and then we had some friends over for a little get-together. The food spread was especially delicious! Saturday evening involved Funfetti cake and episodes of Big Brother. Let me tell you, it was a happening night at the Haupert household! On Sunday morning, Mal made…

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…

Hi, friends! I hope you had a wonderful Fourth of July! My 4th was a ton of fun, but also really relaxing at the same time because we didn’t have any set plans and just hung out and relaxed for two days straight. Mal, Murphy, and I spent the 4th (and 5th) at my in-law’s house (aka Funny Farm) and hung out with the whole family. It was a HOT couple of days, so we…

Attended the CrossFit 781 holiday party!! So fun! Looking pretty in our ugly sweaters! Mr. Oreo Snowman had no chance against me. Kim wore the BEST holiday sweatshirt ever. Kerrie + me! M + T! Love. Went to the dog park with friends, dogs, and a baby. We also skipped rocks on the ocean. Hosted a game night at our house! Cutting the cheese. The Champagne Cheddar was a huge hit with our friends. Thanks,…

Mal and I finally finished our Christmas shopping last night (along with the rest of the South Shore)! The Derby Street Shoppes were a madhouse! It seemed like everyone waited until the last minute to do their shopping! Somehow, Mal and I managed to hit a few stores and buy what we needed in about 45 minutes. Booyah. After finding gifts for everyone on our list, we found ourselves at the Rustic Kitchen once again. I…

I can’t believe that I am still standing after the day I had yesterday. I woke up at 6:30 AM, ran 14 miles, ate second breakfast, stretched, showered, and drove more than an hour out into the ‘burbs. Of course, Mal and I took this little guy with us: On the drive, we took at pit-stop at Starbucks to grab a couple of iced soy lattes. Mal ordered peppermint; I ordered pumpkin. Fun times in…

What a weekend!! 😎 For once in a long time, I actually felt like I was able to enjoy a vacation… and it was so awesome!  Now that blogging is my full-time job, I rarely take time off, but, sometimes, it’s nice to take a break– even though, I still posted photo recaps of my weekend with a total of 25 words! 😉 Breakfast Mal, Murphy, and I spent the night at Fanny Farm with Dave and…

Funny Farm. Doggie paddle. Yikes! Double-fisting. Turtle. Grady. I Don’t Know. Dinner. Dessert. Almond Joy.

MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL!!!!! I’m so happy that it’s finally Christmas! I’ve had a great day so far, and I hope you’re having a wonderful Christmas, too! Thanks to Google, I’m using Logan’s WiFi for free! What a nice holiday gift from the Google folks. Perfect for a traveling blogger! 😉 My Christmas morning started with a small breakfast and opening Christmas gifts with Mal’s step-mom and her side of the family. (We’ll celebrate Christmas…

Another reason why I like visiting our families so much: NATURE! It’s everywhere out here! 😉 This afternoon, Mal, Murphy, and I went for a long walk in the woods behind my in-law’s house. It was soooo relaxing… and quiet! And awesome! 😀 Just what I needed. Good thing Murphy wasn’t wearing his camo harness. We’d never be able to find him in the woods! On our walk, we stopped to snap some photos. Some came…
