Hi, guys! The Hauperts had quite the fun holiday weekend with all sorts of activities to kick off the most wonderful time of year! I really love that Thanksgiving fell so early this year because now we have an extra week of “Christmas holiday” to celebrate. (Quinn always says “Christmas holiday” when he’s talking about Christmas, and it’s the cutest thing ever. It’s also caught on with Mal and me, so now Christmas is “Christmas…

Hi, guys! Happy Monday to you! I hope you had a nice Easter. I have a recap of ours coming soon, but I wanted to share my workouts from last week as well as some of the delicious eats that I enjoyed. I’m glad I’ve finally got into a groove again with my workouts, and I’m finally feeling back to my old self again. As far as my eats go, I dined out quite a…

Good morning anda very happy Monday to you! Also, CONGRATS to the NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS for winning this year’s Super Bowl! Holy cow, what an EPIC game. I don’t even like football, and I was cheering and celebrating like a lunatic last night!! 🙂 Ok, so I love a good High Low High blog post, so here’s a recap of our weekend that shares both the high and low points from it. I always like to focus…

A little special someone got his hair cut for the first time! He didn’t cry at all. Actually, no one did, but Mal and I definitely had one of those omg-our-baby-is-growing-up-so-fast moments. Related: Quinn’s forehead band-aid is not related to his haircut. He actually took a terrible tumble just minutes before we left the house to get his hair cut. He didn’t seem to mind the band-aid (and it made him look tough), so we just kept…

Good morning, friends! I haven’t done one of these A New Day in the Life posts in a little awhile. I had planned to write one per month as a way to remember Quinn’s early days, but I missed December. Boo. Fail. But, I want to get back on track, so here is another one to add to the collection. As always, this day is just one of many and all times listed are just estimates. 4:00 AM:…

Blah. This colitis update isn’t going to be a fun one to write. Ok, so let me catch you up to speed”¦ June 2011: First diagnosed with UC after a bad flare. Get better. Stop taking meds. February 2012: Second flare. Get better. Stop taking meds. (Clearly, I don’t learn.) July 2012: Third flare. Stay on meds this time, but I become steroid-dependent. Go on and off steroids to control flare symptoms for the next…

Hi, friends! Happy Monday! I hope you had a lovely weekend. Mine was nice””nothing too exciting to report, but an all-around wonderful weekend. That said, here are 8 great things that happened! Quinn and I went to stroller bootcamp, and it was so much fun. We did some running intervals, hill sprints, push-ups, plyo squats, and some core work. It was a fabulous, full-body workout and a great way to start the day! Mal, Q, and I went…

Good morning and happy, happy, happy Monday! We had another low-key weekend around here, but it was so nice and much-needed. Here are some photos from it! Clockwise from top left: Poor Murphy just wasn’t feeling Sunday morning and stayed in bed for hours. His life is so hard. On Friday night, Mal and I ordered pizza, salad, and spinach artichoke dip from Bertucci’s. It was an epic dinner. A CrossFit friend, who works for…

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…

(I guarantee this post title will make Theodora laugh!) After CrossFit yesterday, Mal and I felt really lazy. I don’t know if it was all of those heavy kettlebell swings or what, but neither of us felt like putting in any effort to make lunch, even though we were both starving, so I suggested going out to eat. As soon as the words left my mouth, Mal’s face lit up. I guess we were on…

Nerd alert!!! Like our new helmets? Mal and I bought them for our upcoming ski trip this weekend. We’ve heard one too many stories about accidents on the slopes resulting in serious head injuries, so we figured we’d rather be safe than sorry. Dinner After buying a few last-minute essentials for our trip, Mal and I swung by the Rustic Kitchen for dinner. Clearly, I enjoy dining at this restaurant. I’ve eaten there four times in the…

Woah. Today totally flew by! But, time flies when you’re having fun, right? 😉 This afternoon, I had the opportunity to enjoy lunch with a CNC reader and then chat with one of Mal’s colleagues. The focus of both meetings was one of my favorite subjects: pugs blogging! Madison, a Junior at Princeton University, invited me to lunch to discuss food blogging as part of the research for her mini-thesis. She wanted to meet informally,…

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…

Mal and I are the worst holiday shoppers ever. Tonight, we set out to finished our Christmas shopping, but neither of us were in the mood to do it. So, we visited two stores, purchased one gift, and called it quits for the night.  Instead, we thought that drinking beers at the Rustic Kitchen was a better way to spend our time. Wahoo! Happy Hour! So, that’s exactly what we did. We each grabbed a…
