Hi, friends! I hope you had a very HAPPY Thanksgiving! 🙂 Ours was low-key and relaxing. We saw family, ate delicious food, and reflected on what we’re most thankful for, so it was an especially nice day. After a workout at the YMCA and cooking at home, we drove out to my Grammie’s house for an early dinner with my family. It was so nice catching up with everyone – my Grammie had was quite…

Hi, guys! As you can see, CNC is up and running again. HOORAY! That was a rough few days, but I’m glad to be back in business again. In fact, I woke up in the middle of the night on Wednesday morning – my brain just wouldn’t shut off – and checked to see if my blog was working again (I know, I have issues…). It was working (!!), so I busted out 3 hours…

Hi, guys! Happy Sunday! Just wanted to check-in and say ‘hello’ since I haven’t blogged since Wednesday. Holy cow. I’m pretty sure that’s the longest CNC has gone without a new post. I took a few days off to relax and unwind with my family during the Thanksgiving holiday, and, man, it was much-needed and so, so, so nice. Anyway, I just wanted to share what we’ve been up to since last Thursday! Thanksgiving partner…

Happy Thanksgiving Eve, friends! Our friends gave us a Gratitude Jar at the beginning of 2016 as a way to remember the little things we are thankful for throughout the year. I figured the eve of Thanksgiving would be the perfect time to share what we’ve accumulated throughout the year. FYI: Some didn’t include dates on them, so I just listed them at the bottom of the list. 1/8: Podcasts 1/8: A job that gives me time…

Good morning and happy Friday to you! Let’s get right to the coffee talk, shall we? Has anyone tried the new Spiced Sweet Cream Cold Brew from Starbucks? It sounds heavenly. Hopefully, it’s not too sweet, but I love the idea of spiced creamy cold brew! I can’t believe Thanksgiving is next week. November is FLYING by, right? What are your plans for Turkey Day? Are you hosting? What are you making for the holiday? So,…

Good morning and happy Monday! I’m a little behind on blogging about Thanksgiving, but, hey, it’s better late than never, right? We had a great Thanksgiving, which included a Thanksgiving Eve celebration at our neighbors’ house. Pumpkin martini? Yes, please! I had a great time, but, let’s just say, I should have stopped at one! The next morning, I met the lovely ladies of KFIT for the 23rd Annual Dreamcatcher Classic Road Race, which includes both a…

This post is brought to you by Dave’s Killer Bread. Happy Thanksgiving!!! I hope you have a special day ahead of you, filled with family, friends, thanks, and giving, and, of course, plenty of delicious food! And when the holiday is over and you have a refrigerator full of leftovers, I hope you try this recipe for the best-ever Thanksgiving turkey sandwich! It was definitely a winner in our house after our recent Friendsgiving celebration. Mal could…

Friendsgiving at the Haupert’s was a big success! I’m so glad we have this wonderful tradition with our hometown friends. I know it means a lot to all of us! On Friday afternoon, Mal, Quinn, and I headed to Bongi’s Turkey Farm to pick up our already-cooked turkey (and gravy and stuffing) for the next day. We just needed to reheat it, which, of course, made things so easy! Once Quinn went to bed later that night,…

That face! Haha! Our Thanksgiving was really great this year. We spent it with my family at my Grammie’s house. She had 20 of us for dinner! Grammie spent some quality time with her great-grandson, which was so nice to see. The food… I was pumped to see so many appetizers wrapped in bacon! We had fruit + sorbet to start. A turkey made out of butter! <– My mom thought this was so cool and…

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…

Our 1st annual Friendsgiving was a huge success! Our friends Josh and Courtney hosted this year’s event and next year someone else among the group will host. I love the idea of sharing the hosting role””so fun! The evening started with drinks, apps, and lots of catching up. I ate a ridiculous amount of spinach-artichoke dip. I kept saying I needed to save room for dinner, but I kept eating it anyway. It was SO…

Good morning! Yesterday was great. So many things about the day made me smile: new projects, lunch with a friend, vegan sushi, cake pops, and giving Murphy a bunch of goodies that made him so happy. It was an all-around wonderful day, especially for a Monday! Breakfast My morning started bright and early with breakfast: 2 waffles with almond butter and banana slices (inside and on top) and a glass of OJ. Delish! After breakfast,…

Hi, guys! Did you have a nice Turkey Day? Mine was quite wonderful, and it included lots of quality family time and plenty of delicious food! After the Dreamcatcher Classic Road Race, Mal and I drove to my grandmother’s house about an hour away for Thanksgiving dinner. My Grammie had quite the crew at her house this year””there were 23 of us! Including all four cousins (and our significant others)! The four of us pretty…

Happy Thanksgiving Eve! Usually, my plans for the night before Thanksgiving involve boozing-face with high school friends, but Mal and I signed up for a 5-mile road race tomorrow morning, so we’re having a low-key evening at home instead. Oh, how things have changed. I didn’t snap a ton of photos today, but here are a few from Instagram”¦ After breakfast, I took a yoga class. It was a Vinyasa Flow with lots of back-bends,…

I’m planning to splurge at Thanksgiving dinner (specifically on my Grammie’s turkey stuffing and my mom’s pumpkin pie), so in order to offset some of those extra calories, I’m running a road race with Mal in the morning. Starting my day with some exercise sets a healthy tone for the day, so I’m able to enjoy Thanksgiving to its fullest without going overboard either. Here are 10 workouts that will help you start off your…
