I’m always on the hunt for new iced coffee places, so when the sign for Bonjour Cafe at Charles David Salon & Spa on Webster Street in Hanover caught my attention, I knew I wanted to stop in sooner than later. The location is basically “on the way” to just about everything, so it was just a matter of time before I stopped in. Last Friday, Quinn and I were on our way to swim…

Hi, friends! Happy Monday to you! 🙂 I’m a little behind with “day in the life” blogging, but I’m planning to catch up today and tomorrow – starting with a wonderful Quinn and Mumma day last Friday. The fun kicked off at Goldfish for Quinn’s weekly swimming lesson. His usual instructor wasn’t there (and he lovvvveess her), so he was pretty nervous swimming with someone new. The staff at Goldfish were so sweet to him…

Hi, friends! We had quite the nice Friday yesterday. I ended up documenting quite a bit of it for Instagram Stories, so I wanted to share the details over here on the blog. I’m curious: Do you follow me on Instagram Stories or just the blog? Let me know in the comment section because it’ll help me with content creation. I’m not sure if I’m repeating myself or if it’s all new to you? Or…

Hi, friends! We’re at that point in winter when I’m so OVER IT. We got a few random glimpses of nice weather in February, which made me think maybe we’d get an early Spring, but now we’re getting dumped on by snowstorm after snowstorm. March is always such a blah month because it drags on and on with winter. Wahhhh. I’m sorry to start this post with such a buzz kill, but I promise to…

Hi, guys! Happy Saturday! I hope your weekend if off to a wonderful start! Our Quinn and Mumma day yesterday was pretty busy in the morning, but very low-key in the afternoon, which ended up being the perfect way to end our week – and start Mal’s school vacation! Quinn will go to school a few days, but we’re also planning some family adventures as well! My morning started bright and early at 5:15 AM…

I’m pretty sure I’ve said this before, but 4.5 years old is my favorite age by far. There’s just something about this age that is sweet and wonderful and perfect and silly. Quinn has turned into the most awesome tiny human, and I absolutely love spending our “Quinn and Mumma” days together. I’ve really started to make it a point to embrace our time together, and I constantly make mental notes of my favorite warm…

Happy Monday, friends! So, I’m a little behind on, well, everything lately, so I’m just now hitting publish on this blog post from last Friday. It was our typical “Quinn and Mumma” day, which included a gym+swim morning as well as lots and lots of experiments throughout the day. I’ve been sharing Quinn’s love for science (I always want to write it: SCIENCE!) on Instagram Stories and have received a ton of questions about them, so I…

Hello from nap time! 🙂 Quinn told me he was “too tired to close his eyes” and then proceeded to pass out on the couch. Haha! I mean, that’s what happens when you wake up at 5:00 AM! I woke up at 4:01 AM to work this morning, but I was sabotaged by a tiny human walking into my office an hour later. I tried to get Quinn back to bed because I know how…

Hi, guys! Another “Quinn and Mumma” day is in the books, and I have to admit it was one of my favorites to date! 🙂 It started like a lot of them with snuggles and TV on the couch followed by breakfast. This particular morning, Quinn requested oatmeal for breakfast. OATMEAL, people! Apparently, they eat it at his school, and he really likes it. Being the oatmeal fan that I am, I jumped at the…

Hi, guys! Here’s another edition of our “Quinn and Mumma” days. It was your pretty standard morning of adventures, but this post concludes with an easy and delicious weeknight recipe. It’s actually an old school CNC recipe that’s been revived since it’s such a simple, nutritious, and quick dinner to throw together on busy night – or, hey, just any night when you DO NOT feel like cooking. Basically, you should add this recipe to…

Guys, I took a yoga class yesterday! (I know, I’m as surprised as you are!) And it was 60 minutes long! AND I didn’t leave midway through due to boredom! 🙂 I’m generally not a fan of yoga, but I kind of liked the class that I took yesterday and might even go again. We did a few stretches that I definitely needed, so it might be motivation to keep with it. My upper back…

Happy Halloween, friends! The Hauperts are so excited for today! Quinn went to school dressed as Gekko (from PJ Masks), and we’re having friends over to our house tonight for a little pre-game party before heading out to trick-or-treat around the neighborhood. Mal and I are joining Quinn with the PJ Masks theme (yes, we’re totally that family), so we’ll be Catboy and Owlette. I seriously can’t wait for a fun-filled evening with family and…

Friday was quite the jam-packed Quinn and Mumma day! It started bright and early before the sun came up – and by 7:15 AM, we were already on our third activity of the morning! 🙂 Quinn and I played Play-Doh while we ate breakfast together. On the menu for me: Toast with chive spread and a rice cake with Teddie peanut butter and banana slices + my usual iced coffee with vanilla collagen in my…

Another “Quinn and Mumma” day is in the books, and it was an especially fun one for us! 🙂 It started like a lot of our days together with “snugs” on the couch, eating breakfast together, and then getting ourselves ready for the day. We also had some time to play a few games of Zingo!, which is a new-ish family favorite. We’ve actually broken it out every other week or so since Quinn’s birthday…

Hi, friends! Happy FRIYAY to you! I just wanted to pop in real quick to share a “Quinn and Mumma” morning because (selfishly) I want to remember these days, and CNC is a great way to document them. I mean, our little dude is going to be in Kindergarden before we know it, and I know I’ll miss these days a ton! Friday morning started off fabulously with an update from one my past nutrition clients…
