Hi, guys! How’s your Thursday going so far? I’m actually at MGH right now for my colonoscopy, so I wrote this post this morning to update you guys on a few things going on in our lives right now. I survived the colonoscopy prep… barely.  I remembered the prep being so much easier the last time! Between breastfeeding and being hungry ALL THE TIME + having my appointment in the afternoon instead of the morning, it…

Hi, friends! Here’s another A New Day in the Life post””a snapshot from yesterday! 4:27 AM – I hear Quinn on the baby monitor (he’s sleeping in his room now) and then I look at the time on my phone””holy crap, he slept for 8 hours! He usually does stretches of 4-6 hours, so 8 is a victory for us! I feed Quinn. 5:00 AM – I change Quinn’s diaper and plan to put him…

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…

Hi, friends! Happy, happy, happy Friday! I’m not sure if you noticed, but I did a little less blogging this week. After my digital detox over the weekend, I realized that I really need to take care of myself and not work so much and, well, sleep, so that’s exactly what I did. I actually went back to bed a few mornings this week after feeding Q instead of starting my day at 5:00 AM (well,…

Hi, guys! Here are my meals, snacks, and some happenings from today! BREAKFAST Toast with almond butter and banana slices, Fage with honey, cherries, and an iced coffee with chocolate almond milk – loved this breakfast! WORKOUT After breakfast, I joined my friend Kerrie for a spinning class, which was (OMG) so fun and reminded me just how much I love exercise… like, so much. I really, truly love being active, and I am so happy that I’m…

That’s the question on everyone’s mind! And I love how concerned people are with our little puglet’s well-being now that he’s a big brother and sharing our attention with baby Q. Overall, Murphy is doing quite well. When we first came home from the hospital, things were a little rocky, but he’s slowly but surely starting to act like his usual pug-self again. At first, Murphy really didn’t know what to think about the situation and his new baby…

Hi, friends! Just popping in to say ”˜hello’ and let you guys know that we’re still waiting for Baby Haupert to make his arrival. I’m still not having any (obvious) signs of labor, but I’m having fun trying to encourage it! (I know babies come when they’re ready!) On Friday night, Mal and I ordered (spicy) Thai food for dinner, hoping it might get things moving. No luck, but, as always, Lime Leaf was delicious! #pugcreeper On…

Hi, guys! How’s your Tuesday going so far? Here’s a little recap from yesterday”¦ Breakfast I slept pretty well on Sunday night, but I still woke up feeling totally exhausted on Monday morning. It was actually kind of weird. I guess all of my trying to get comfortable + trips to the bathroom was more restless than I thought. My stomach was growling like crazy when I woke up, so I got out of bed…

Yesterday afternoon I noticed that Murphy rubbed his face with his paw a few times. His eye had been a little watery and wink-y the day before, but it didn’t seem to bother him other than a few paw rubs, so I didn’t think much of it. I just figured he got a little dirt in there or something. No big deal. Well, when I took a good look at Murphy’s eye, it looked kind…

Hi, guys! Happy Monday! I hope you had a wonderful weekend! Mal was away at a bachelor party, so it was just Murphy and me hanging out all weekend. I thought about making plans with friends or family, but then I realized it was probably my last weekend home alone for awhile. Baby H. is going to be here before I know it, so I decided to embrace my time alone and have a low-key…

Hi, friends! Happy Monday! How was your weekend? Mine was so nice. So many wonderful things happened, and I am definitely starting Monday with a smile on my face. Here’s a quick recap”¦ On Friday, I enjoyed my pre-baby spa day and, wow, it was amazing. I had a facial, massage, lunch, manicure, and pedicure. Oh my gosh, it was so awesome. How to make a keg from a watermelon? I definitely took note of this…

Good morning! I can’t believe how quickly this week has flown by. Thursday already? Hey, I’m not complaining”¦ I have a fun weekend on the agenda! I hope your week is whizzing by just as quickly! Here’s an adorable photo of Murphy just because. I know some of you read CNC just for the pug pictures and that’s ok. I am more than happy to share his adorableness on a regular basis. Breakfast Yesterday morning’s…

Hi, friends! The South Shore of Massachusetts was hit with another good-size snow storm. Our area got a little over a foot, which meant Mal had no school yesterday and it was essentially a snow day for me too. Of course, I can’t sit still for more than five minutes, so I stayed busy around the house. That said, here’s a little snapshot into what happened during yesterday’s snow day! Mal and I tag-teamed the…

Ever since we bought our new couch, Mal and I have been losing a never-ending battle against pug fur. (It still amazes me, for such a little dog, Murphy can shed SO MUCH fur. It’s insane. I know the pug people feel my pain.) We recently bought a Dust Buster thing, and we vacuum the couch almost every day, but we just can’t win, so we considered other solutions. Last week, Mal brought home a dog…
