Hello and happy NEW YEAR, my friends! I am so glad it’s 2015 because I’m looking forward to so much this year… Quinn growing, walking, and talking, traveling (oh, how I’ve missed it), running the Boston Marathon, summer (yep, just plain old summer), and so much more! Hello, 2015! Since a lot of us (myself included) are kicking off the new year with our health and wellness in mind, I thought I would share a new favorite…

Good morning! Here are some eats from yesterday”¦ and then I have some fun “food crimes” to talk about! Breakfast: Oatmeal + a fried egg + iced coffee with eggnog. Lunch: Chunked chicken breast with roasted potatoes, steamed spinach, and buffalo sauce. Snack: Marylou’s almond cookie coffee + Greek yogurt and granola. Dinner: Cheeseburger Casserole (it was wicked good) + wine. So, Quinn and I had a rough day yesterday. He’s teething and has a nasty cold, so…

Hi, friends! Happy Sunday! Thank you so much for all of your sweet comments on my previous post. Mal and I are so happy and excited to start this journey together. And I can’t believe we’ll have a little one this time next year! I have so much to tell you guys”¦ about Baby Haupert, my first trimester, Cabo/Esperanza, 24 Days of Togetherness and, hey, just life in general””so I will definitely be playing catching…

We’re having a really nice, but low-key weekend in the Haupert household so far. Last night involved PJs, watching television, and a ridiculous amount of cuddling on the couch. Our DVR was at 89%, so Mal and I were all about a TV marathon. Dinner Dinner was thrown together in a matter of minutes””thanks to a microwavable dinner. Macaroni & cheese + steamed spinach = delicious and somewhat nutritious! I finished off the evening with…

Hi, friends! Happy Hump Day!  I made a delicious lunch today and just wanted to share the recipe with you guys. It was delicious, satisfying, quick, easy, and made in just one pot. Love that! This recipe only calls for 6 ingredients: 1 cup chopped spinach (frozen or fresh) 1.5 cups chunked chicken 2 tbsp unsweetened almond milk (or cow’s milk) 4 wedges of The Laughing Cow Light French Onion 1 tsp garlic powder 1 cup…

I did it! I did my first “Girl” workout as prescribed! Woohoo! I finished “Helen,” but, man, it wasn’t pretty. My time wasn’t super fast, but I’m still proud of myself for Rx-ing a benchmark workout. I first did “Helen” back in February and finished in 12:12, but I used bands for the pull-ups. I thought I could do the workout as prescribed last night since I’ve been busting out kipping pull-ups lately (and I…

Hello, hello! I hope you’re having a wonderful Wednesday!  Breakfast I started my day with a very pumpkin-y breakfast: Sweet Breakfast Scramble in a jar (SBSIAJ) with canned pumpkin, TJ’s Pumpkin Butter, and an extra scoop of Teddie Peanut Butter in the mix. The combo of pumpkin butter + peanut butter was de-lic-ious! I also drank a glass of iced pumpkin spice Dandy Blend with almond milk. After breakfast, I got my plank on! Here’s the first…

Hello, hello! So, our next big home project is redoing our driveway and walkway because they’re both in need of some serious TLC. Mal and I actually spent a couple of hours weeding our driveway earlier this summer, but it doesn’t look like it at all now, does it? Holy weeds! As Mal said, “You know you’re in trouble when you need to mow your driveway.” There’s also a bunch of roots coming up through…

Happy Friday the 13th! Have you ever heard of friggatriskaidekaphobia, the fear of Friday the 13th? Well, I think I have it! GAH!! Ok, I’m not afraid of the number 13, but I irrationally don’t like it, even though I love all other odd numbers, especially the numbers 5 and 19. I know my dislike for 13 makes no sense, but it’s just an unlucky number for me. Did you happen to see the fun…

I’m going to do things a little different this morning. 😉 I’m not sure if you’ve noticed, but I’ve slacked on posting my dinners lately. It’s mostly because they’ve been really boring. Last week, for example, I ate cereal one night, yogurt another night, and a peanut butter and banana sandwich another. There’s nothing wrong with these meals, but they’re not very exciting either. This week, however, I got my act together and planned some…
