Good morning! Happy Hump Day, friends! Quinn slept until 5:00 AM yesterday morning and Mal did the middle-of-the-night feeding, so I actually slept last night and it was a-mazing. Well, I sort of slept. I still woke up 4 or 5 times to change my clothes because of the night sweats, but I fell right back to sleep every time, so it was a win in my book. Breakfast at 5:30 AM: Toasted English muffin…

Hi, guys! Not much to report on the baby front. We’re still waiting. No (obvious) signs of labor, but my lower back is kind of achy today, which is a new development. My friend Jen told me she had back pain the day before she went into labor, so maybe we’re getting close to something happening? I had the worst time sleeping last night. Being 40+ weeks pregnant and hyped-up on steroids, I didn’t fall asleep…

Hi, guys! Happy Cyber Monday! How was your Thanksgiving? Mine was really great. I loved being home with family and spending time with friends this past weekend. I also barely thought about work, so it was really nice to unplug and not sit in front of my computer. Of course, it’s back to work today, but I’m feeling rested, refreshed, and ready to blog. That said, here’s my recap of Thanksgiving! This year’s Thanksgiving was…

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…

Hello from Boston’s Logan International Airport! (Hooray for free WiFi!) I left my house bright and early this morning (via taxi) and flew through rush hour traffic, thanks to the HOV lane. I have to admit, it was kind of fun whizzing by the parking lot on Route 93 instead of sitting in it! BOSTON STRONG! When I arrived at the airport, I cruised through security (seriously, it took about 10 minutes), so I swung…

It was a gorgeous day in downtown Boston yesterday! It was a little chilly, but beautiful and sunny at the same time. My doctor’s appointment went well. It was short and sweet like I expected. My doctor wants to wean me off the Uceris over the next few weeks, which, truthfully, I am really worried about. I have had ZERO success weaning off steroids in the past, so I’m really trusting my doctor and hoping…

The final day at the Cooking Cottage started with a heart-pumping and adventurous workout sponsored by Snap Supercandy. Our trainer for the workout was Rob DeCillis, who works with Spartan Races. Rob is also a new dad. His wife actually had a baby the day before and he still drove an hour to train us. What a guy! Our hour-long workout started with a dynamic warm-up in the backyard. It also included some fun, animal-inspired…

Good morning! Happy Friday! A bunch of you guys said you enjoyed reading my “day in the life” posts, so I’m going to keep them alive on CNC and try to incorporate them more into my regular blogging. With that said, here are some (tiny) pictures from yesterday! Starbucks at Broadway. There’s a new Starbucks at the Broadway T station. Southie is so fancy now! Therapy dog team after visiting. Murphy and I had a…

The other day, Mal and I were both in bad moods (oh, Gemini mood swings), which, of course, is never a good time. Usually, when one of us is in a crappy mood, the other person helps them snap out of it, but Mal and I kept annoying each other and making little snide comments. We both knew we were being crankypants for no reason, but we just couldn’t get ourselves out of it. Eventually,…

Happy first day of summer, friends!!! I love summer. A lot. I also love today because it’s the longest day of the year. I just really enjoy having those extra hours of sunlight each day. It’s kind of cool when you look outside at 8:30 at night and it’s still kind of light out, right? I feel like I never want to sleep at this time of year! Eats & Treats So, I’m still feeling…

Guess who turned four years old yesterday? Yep, our little pug is a year older. I still remember the day we got him. He was so tiny and now he’s all grown up. I still can’t believe he’s four. Where does the time go? Murphy’s friend, Clark, was one of the first dogs to wish him a happy birthday yesterday. (Batman sent a text message with some birthday wishes.) Clark actually wished him a “happy…

Yesterday started bright and early once again with a run in Central Park with Monica. We ran 3 miles together, but then I called it quits. I just didn’t have a ton of energy and felt blah, so I headed back to the hotel while Monica continued on for a few more miles. Breakfast On my walk back to the hotel, I stopped by Starbucks where I bought an egg white and spinach wrap, banana,…

All packed up and ready to go to New York City! Are you wondering what my trip to NYC is all about? I shall explain”¦ Remember when I submitted my “Nacho Skins” recipe for the Whole Foods blogger contest? Well, it won the grand prize (yay!!!), which was a two-night stay in New York City for me and guest as well as an invite to an exclusive wine and cheese media event. Pretty amazing prize,…

Good morning! My day started bright and early this morning with a phone call from my husband. He forgot about the time change for me and just wanted to say “good morning,” so my phone was ringing at 5:45 AM. Well, hello, Mal. We chatting for a little while””he recapped his morning and told me about Murphy’s pug antics””so by the time I got off the phone with him, I was wide awake and ready…

Just a heads up: This is a super random blog post… and you’re welcome. Ha! Mal had today off from school since it’s Good Friday, so we (ok, him and Murphy) slept in and enjoyed a leisurely morning together. I actually had a terribly disturbing dream about Murphy being attacked by a big, white sea turtle (random), so I was all bugged out when I woke up and could not get back to sleep. Ok,…
